An Interview with Me Part 2...

Brought to you by G:

1. Now that you have become a WAHM, would you ever go back to working outside of the home?? (besides if you absolutley had to in order to pay the bills) Well, my answer right now is that I would like to always work from home. But I'm not naive enough to think that 5 or 10 years down the road, I'll need to either go out and get a job outside of my house, or go insane from the lack of socialization. LOL! But it will/would be hard to give up the fact that I'm home whenever the kids are, I make my own hours, I work (or don't work) whenever I feel like it, etc.

2. How old were you when you had your first beer?? Have you always liked the same brand? Believe it or not (and most people don't believe it... LOL!) I didn't have a single, solitary drop of alcohol until the middle of my freshman year of college. And even then, I didn't drink much beer. I was a vodka girl. In college (when I first started drinking beer) we always bought a brand called American Light. It was $6.00 a case and we bought it because it was CHEAP, but truthfully, it didn't taste that bad. LOL! But since getting out of college, yes, I've always pretty much drank Miller Lite. I like a lot of other beers too, but Miller Lite is what we always have here at the house.

3. Do you think your family is complete or would you like to have more children?? If your answer is more, when do you think you'd try again? I wish I knew. LOL! I think in theory, Steve and I would both love another child (and would totally dig it if we had a son), but in actuality, I don't know if we want another one. LOL! The cost... the pregnancy (ick)... the sleepless nights... the lack of freedom for the first year or two... the reflux (a BIG one for us)... etc. I think perhaps if we never had to worry about money and I knew for sure whether I was going to have to go back to work full-time or not, we'd probably have another one. But those issues kind of hold us back a bit, I think. IF we decide to have another, I would like to get pregnant right when Hannah is starting kindergarten (about a year from now or so). After that, I'd start being too old (in MY opinion) and wouldn't want to start ALL over again with baby stuff, ya know?

But all of that being said, I don't think either of us feels "incomplete." Another baby would just be a little "bonus" for us, KWIM?

4. What's the most redneck thing you have ever done?? What's the most redneck thing you've ever witnessed?? Wow! This one is HARD! Mostly because I can't recall one particular thing that stands out as true "redneck." I've done a lot of things that I suppose some people would consider redneckish though... I've been to tractor pulls and demolition derbies and stock car races... I've gone swimming and fishing in creeks (but we call them "cricks")... I've gutted my own fish... In college, I perfected the art of spitting and I could hock a loogey (sp?) into a can 10 feet away from me and get it in 8 out of 10 times... I've gone spotting for deer. (You drive around at night and shine big spotlights into fields, looking for deer.)... I've helped host a pigroast for three years now (LOL!)... I've slid down hay chutes in barns like they were sliding boards... I've drunk every type of cheap beer imaginable (Shlitz, Schmidtz, American Light, Miwaulkee's Best, etc.)... On many occasions, I've chewed tobacco, and in fact, I did it with Steve the night we met for the first time... I could go on and on. But I don't think any of these things are downright "redneck" so much as they are "small town", but I could be wrong. LOL!

As for witnessing someone else doing something redneck? God, I can't think of anything for this either. Half my town in redneck, so I'm so used to seeing that kind of thing that it doesn't even strike me as odd anymore. LOL! I'll keep thinking on these and come back to them if I think of anything specific.

5. Which fast food or junk food would you not be able to live without? Pringles and soda. I'd throw myself in front of a train if I couldn't have my Pringles. LOL!

I can not get over your skill at hocking a loogie should perform that feat at the next pig roast :)

Alien said...

LOL G! I can't do it anymore. Haven't even tried it for years. Which means perhaps I can still do it. But part of me would rather just not find out. LOL!

G said...

I would totally go to your pig roast. And I LOVE monster truck shows and tractor pulls. There's a little bit of country in this Florida girl. ;)
