(meme) 50 More Questions

Today seems to be a meme-ish day, when I actually get a break (I just typed a 20 page memo, and I have another one to write). However, it’s lunch time, and that means a meme snarfed from six_gun_samurai:

  1. When was the last time you ran around in the rain? Well, I ran to the van through the rain on Monday. Does that count?
  2. When was the last time you saw one of your parents? Sob. Just about 11 months ago exactly, when I saw my dad for the last time just before we buried him. I was with him when he died on 11/11/04.
  3. Which family member do you most resemble? My dad, I think.
  4. Do you wear cologne/perfume? Almost never, but folks still give it to me :-(.
  5. Do you wear tennis shoes? As in “shoes designed for the tennis court specifically”, no. I tend to wear walking or running shoes when I wear athletic footware.
  6. Do you ‘clean up nice’? My wife thinks so.
  7. When was the last time you tripped and fell? When my daughter last had a meltdown. For some reason, her meltdowns addle my brain, and I tend to trip, whap my head, and otherwise injure myself. But that’s why God gives a child two parents so we can cover for each other. When the meltdowns get to my wife, I’m able to handle them; and vice-versa.
  8. Where was the last place you slept besides your home? On the van into work this morning; before that, during the conference (whoops, did I say that with my public fingers?)
