Monday Minute - 6/21/10
1 - Have you ever had any feelings towards one of your teachers back in the day?
Hmm… Nothing much really. I mean, most of my teacher’s were women, so there wasn’t a lot of opportunity (although I really did love my earliest teachers. I thought my kindergarten teacher was SO pretty with her long blonde hair parted in the middle and her blue eyeshadow. Did I mention it was 1980?). I sort of had a very mild crush on my HS math teacher. He was a really great teacher and his class was a lot of fun. I think my love was more of math / the class than the teacher though. “Luckily” I had the antichrist the next year and got over the crush on higher level math as well….
2 - What's the most embarrassing thing that happened while at work?
I don’t know if I have a really great one here. I mean, somewhere I told the story of my boss knocking on my office door while I was pumping / expressing milk, but I wasn’t actually all that embarrassed (he, on the other hand, has not knocked on my closed door since. I consider it a win, actually).
I’ve done tons of stupid things, but they’re not all that funny to share.
3 - When was the last time you crapped yourself sharted?
Um, I can’t think of a time I’ve done this as an adult. But I will tell you, my husband as a paramedic has definitely gotten the advice from old men – “never trust a fart.” This wisdom is right up there with the old men who say – “never waste an erection.” Words to live by, my friends.
4 - What is one thing you have always kept a secret and why have you kept this a secret for so long?
Always? Always is a long time… I keep quite a bit secret on my blog – really all personal identifiers. This is mostly so I can be more honest in my writing. If all my friends and family were reading, I’d filter the stories to suit. I do still try to abide by some rules on what I blog about (sort of pretending they are reading and not talking about people behind their backs, that sort of thing).
5 - What's your best advice for us habitual coffee drinkers as to not have to poop right after drinking it?
Um… decaf? Actually, I don’t think that works either. Tea? Drink it with iron tablets, as I think those are supposed to cause constipation….
