Laura, at Lauravent69, came up with this new “Getting to Know You” challenge. It’s sort of like the Share Your World prompt that Melanie, over at Sparks From a Combustible Mind, posts every Monday, but with more questions and with the rule to tag two other bloggers to answer the questions. Anyway, here are Laura’s questions and my answers.1. Name a moment in your life when you felt you were most courageous.
I honestly don’t know that I’ve ever done anything truly courageous. But probably the most adventurous thing I’ve ever done was when I persuaded my then girlfriend (and now my wife) to go on a two-week motorcycle/camping trip with me when we’d been dating for only a couple of months. The most courageous moment she ever had was when she agreed to go on that two-week motorcycle/camping trip with me.
2. If you had to choose only one breakfast cereal for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
3. When have you felt the most scared?
The first time I held my newborn baby girl. Not because I was scared of dropping her, but because I was scared by the tremendous responsibility for taking care of and nurturing this brand new life was going to be.
4. If you could sing like any musical artist, who would you choose?
Wow, this is a tough one because there are so many musical artists I would love to be able to sing like. I guess if I had to narrow it down to one singer, though, I’d have to go with Roy Orbison. He had such a crisp, clean, strong voice with an amazing range.
5. Do you collect anything?
Well, technically it’s not a collection, but whenever I buy anything with cash and get change, I always take whatever pocket change I have at the end of each day and put it in a glass jar. When we moved from the east coast to the west coast about a decade ago, I had a collection of about two dozen class jars of change and when I lugged them all to the bank because I didn’t want to transport all of these jars full of coins across country, it turned out that my collection of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters amounted to about $1,300!
6. If you could live inside a TV show or movie, what would it be?
It would have to be a sitcom. Maybe something like “All in the Family,” since my father-in-law was a lot like Archie Bunker and I was more like “the Meathead.”
7. Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? If so, what was it?
