TMI Tuesday #186

1. Which traits from your parents do you see in yourself?
I get my love for reading and learning from my dad. I also have a trace of his absentmindedness. My sense of humor comes from my mom. I'm sure there are other traits I've received from my parents... I've just never had the urge to examine too closely.

2. Which traits from you/your partner do you see in your children (if you don't have kids, which would you like to see)?
In Monkey, I see the same general happiness with life that Owen has. And his fondness for books can only come from me, since Owen won't read a set of instructions, let alone a book! Now, his attitude... I'm not claiming that.

3. How did you get the birds-and-bees talk?
My two older brothers didn't seem to mind their younger sister dogging their heels... one can learn a lot by keeping one's ears open.

4. What was your favorite childhood book?
Bridge to Terabithia was my favorite book from my childhood.

5. What is your favorite piece of erotic literature?
Hmmm, I don't believe I have a favorite.

Yes. Yes, of course I'm commando.

It's The Thought

... that counts.

Ahhhh, yes. Seven years of married bliss is to be celebrated this coming Sunday.

Grandma Tootie is a stickler for sending greeting cards for every birthday and holiday. She always adds a personal message inside. Today in the mail, we received a cute anniversary card. In addition to her touching note, she enclosed some McDonald's coupons, about eight in all. Unfortunately, we'll probably use them.

I'm just hoping we don't use them Sunday.

*Hey NV, is that apostrophe supposed to be in the title??
