Monday Minute: Five Questions

I saw this prompt over at Momma Fargo and thought it was a fun one to do today

Monday Minute


What's wrong with fake breasts?

OK, this wasn't my favorite of the questions, but why not? There's nothing wrong with them if they look reasonable good / natural and are not over the top on size (hello, Barbie, I think you're going to topple over...). That is - there's nothing wrong with them for OTHER people. Personally, I'd look like an idiot. It's not just that my frame isn't meant for "greatness" here - it's that I can't do 'fake' or any real fashion risk without looking like a complete tool - like a kid who tried dressing up in her Mom's clothes.


List your latest run-in with the Carnival of Idiocy.

OK, latest and greatest of today... We bought a house last year, so I was trying to get some liquid funds together for a down payment and therefore sold some stocks that my parents or possible grandparents got me YEARS ago. One check came made out to my Dad as my "custodian." I couldn't cash it (he passed away several years ago), so contacted the company to reissue it. It'd been about a month of jumping through hoops, getting papers signed, etc. and I still hadn't seen anything last week, so I called. After a bunch more hoops, they confirmed that they would reissue it and could send it to our new address. I came this weekend - they got the address right which was nice, but... it was STILL made out to my Dad. Let the phone games begin this morning...



Name one thing you'd like to tell your ten year ago self.

Mostly - don't sweat it. You'll be fine.


What's your favorite word that's not in the dictionary?

Favoritest. This is most often used when describing ice cream - as in, chocolate chocolate chip is my favorite flavor (or most favoritest).


Why do fools fall in love?

We can't NOT fall in love. For the true fool, we fall in love LOTS with lots of things and people and the world - and are happier for it.

  1. I hate when banks do that. Then it takes forever and a day to get it corrected. Good luck.

  6. Super answers! I had the same problem with a bank once. Good luck with that one. By the time they are done they will have spent that check in stamps and paper, correcting their stupid mistakes. UGH. I feel your pain.

  7. Okay...so...here is the deal...that check that you got - not made out to you...you still could have deposited it! All you had to do was sign it to look similar to your dad's signature...then you write (small - so it all fits) Pay To The Order Of (your name)...then you sign it. I usually deposit those checks in the ATM - so there aren't any questions to answer. Since there isn't anyone to contest it, you're in the clear! Never worry about jumping through hoops again!!!
