Answer Me This - Mama the Bassoonist


1. Are you becoming your mother?

Hmmm... maybe? In some ways? 

2. Coffee or tea? 

Oh man. Coffee. I'll have tea on the rare occasion. Lee got a Keurig for Christmas and I am convinced our coffee expenses have tripled. .50/cup times 4 cups is $2/day or $14/week or $56/month. So while I appreciate the diversity of the K-cups, the practical side of me says the Keurig is silly. Lee does not agree (mostly). Probably because he is in charge of coffee set up so he does not have to wait for it at 4:45 when he rolls out of bed.



We did 'give up' the Keurig for Lent (among other things). It was nice going back to the regular pot-o-coffee. Maybe we can pick a day or two each week to use the regular pot? 

3. What foreign country would you like to visit?

Italy. 

I want to take a family vacation and go to Rome and Assisi and yeah... one day right?

4. Do you cry easily?

Well yes and no. Yes if I am pregnant or a few months post-pardum. Otherwise no. 

Please see number 6. If you have never seen your husband and daughter dance at a wedding when all fathers and daughters were called to the dance floor to dance and this happens when you are pregnant, be sure to pack an entire box of Kleenx. Seriously. Dead giveaway that I was pregnant when I was not telling people yet. That was epic and my friends STILL talk about it. 

5. How often do you wear heels? 

Not enough. I enjoy wearing heels and really tall ones but I usually don't have a good reason. I mean I work in an office where our most regular visitor is the UPS guy. Wearing heels to church usually involves some pretty intense blisters because there is a lot of standing done. 

6. Do you play an instrument?

Can we make that past tense? Did you play any instruments? 

Okay. Yes. Piano. Clarinet. Saxophone. Bassoon. 

Also, worth noting that the family rule was you must play an instrument until you get out of high school. 

Played the piano from about first grade to fifth grade. Switched to clarinet so I could get out of piano lessons. Played that for 6 months then played the saxophone because you could not start band on saxophone. Then in the tenth grade switched to bassoon because the high school I went to was crazy competitive in band and in order to get into the honors band class I did not have a prayer on the saxophone and the band director hinted that there was a need for bassoonists in the honors band class. Sign. Me. Up.
