Hey, Wait A Minute! It's The Random!

Once again we have that wonderful past time called the Random Dozen. Lid over at 2nd Cup of Coffee asks twelve interesting, provocative and sometimes thought-provoking questions. Those of us that are gluttons for punishment attempt to answer them with wisdom, honesty and an occasional bit of wit. Those of you that have nothing better to do like to be entertained, read the answers, leave a comment (remember last week's answers--I need affirmation!) and then click on the donuts to read some more answers.

Come on! What are you waiting for?
1. What is your favorite Mexican dish?
Cheese. It's on just about every Mexican food, and the more you use, the better it gets.
2. When you were a kid, did you get started on your homework right away after school, or did you procrastinate?
I rarely had homework. I was just that good. 
3. What is your favorite store for home furnishings?
The one that sells furniture sturdy enough to stand up to the antics of our five sons.
4. When you were young, did you like school lunches?
Hey, anything beats peanut butter and jelly!
5. Is religion a crutch?
If my relationship with Christ is a crutch, than I refuse to ever be well enough to walk without Him.
6. In your region, what is the "big" (most popular in the community or state) high school sport?
Sunbathing. We live in Florida for pete's sake. What did you expect?
7. Do you consider yourself rich?
Why? Are you looking for a loan? 
8. Which of these would you have the best chance for success in administering:
B) Heimlich Maneuver
C) Changing a flat tire
I'm gonna go with changing a flat. I've never been trained in any of the three, but if I fail in changing a flat, at least I won't kill anybody.
9. Which dance would you prefer to learn & why:
A) Salsa
B) Hip Hop
C) Waltz
D) Swing
Okay, I am so incredibly NOT graceful that the mental image of me doing any of the above is just--really bad. Seriously. Stop giggling.
10. What's the worst news you've ever delivered to someone?
The first day I taught high school I told each of my classes, "My name is Mrs. Boyd, and I will be your English teacher this year." It was the worst news they'd every heard.
11. Name something you learned in college that had nothing to do with classes or academics.
I learned how to do the splits. I can't do them anymore. 
12. New variation on an old question: If there's a song in your head that just won't get out, what is your favorite (or most repeated) line in that song?
I don't actually have a song going through my head at the moment, but there is a song that my kids sing about a magical elf who lived in a rainbow tree. He lived downstairs from a flatulent dwarf who was constantly having to pee. Now aren't you sorry you asked?
Okay, if you've recovered from that mental image, leave a comment and run off to read other random dozen answers. And if you can finish the song from #12, well you have a sorrier life than I do.


  1. You have some great answers. I love to see how others answered.

  2. Lol! Your #10 really made me laugh :) Great answers.

  3. ahahaha! Love your answer to #5. #7? Are you offering??? lol. I don't believe #10 for a single minute. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  4. Good answers! I've never heard the little song about the elf in the rainbow tree...LOL

  5. You cheated on #1. It says favorite dish, not ingredient. Just sayin'...

    Your answers always crack me up. Loved your #10. And on #8, people should quit worrying about killing someone by doing CPR. If you are doing CPR, THEY'RE ALREADY DEAD! You can only make things better or leave them the same. You can't make it worse.

  6. Great answers...I think you live in a state where I could actually excel in a sport : )

  7. Jill, you always make me laugh out loud. Only you would share the song about the magical elf...but then again, you did say you have 5 boys. There you go, there is NOTHING sacred with boys around!

    Have an awesome week!

  8. I like mexican cheese too. Amen to #5.

  9. I love your answers! You have a great sense of humor!

    #5 is a great way to answer as well!

  10. Amen to #5!

    #1 - Ain't it the truth?!

    #10 - I BET it turned out to be the BEST news they had all year!!!

  11. Your answers are always so funny. This time especially #12. And no I don't think I can finish the song. lol

  12. Thank you for the stop over and looking at my Random Dozen. I'm following you now!

  13. This is my first week doing the Random Dozen and I am having so much fun! Great answers!

  14. Well, well, well...I have learned a lot about you, but the most important thing is that you like cheese. I thank the Lord daily that I am not lactose intolerant. Cheese rules.

    My word verification is grave...maybe cheese isn't the answer after all.

  15. Enjoyed your answers. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Not sure if you did it on purpose but your link today (Sep 1) is to last week's questions...maybe you are busy and not playing today but in case it was an accident I thought I'd let you know.

    Hope all is well!


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
