Thought-provoking Questions...

Yeah, I have projects to do. I also have paperwork to go through pertaining to what needs to be done to renew my certification. Therefore, it makes total sense that I have this post today. 

I saw these on one of my friend's Pinterest pins. Some of these I can answer here. However, some will just be answered in my head.

Name the most terrifying moment of your life so far.
I'm not really sure. Moments that should have been scary were not scary, such as when Mikelle was stuck and corkscrewed in the birth canal when she should have been born already. I wasn't worried for some reason. And I've found myself terrified when I've clearly overreacted, such as every time there is airplane turbulence (that I mentioned recently).  
There are also moments that were hysterical and terrifying at the same time (have you ever ran and screamed while laughing? That takes the wind out of you!), such as when my friend Hilary and I were chased by zombies. Okay, that does deserve more of an explanation. This was a million years ago. October 1995. She and I went behind a haunted house to ask the people exiting if the $8.00 admission was worth it (as we were broke and weren't going to spend our last few bucks on it if it wasn't any good). But instead, some zombie characters were standing in the back having a smoke break. They saw us and made a grunt noise. Then they casually dropped their cigarettes, stepped on them and slowly smooshed them out and then abruptly screamed, "brains!!" and proceeded to chase us. All for free!

And this isn't when I was most terrified, but it was a scary moment from just this week. On Monday, Chris and I were trying to hike to the hills behind the river and train tracks near our
This is similar to what we saw, but walking one direction over tracks...
current residence. The area in between the river (and it is still flowing in the area behind of the cool things about the Hassayampa) and the tracks is so lush, green and woody, that you need a machete! We came out of that part with some fun scratches on us. But that wasn't the scary part (though if someone needs to hide a body somewhere, it would be ideal..... just sayin'...). The scary part was when we were by the tracks and some javelina came out of the wooded area about 40 feet or so away and crossed the tracks. Then they were followed by a baby javelina and a larger baby. Then they were followed by larger javelinas. Then more babies. It was a cool sight. We would have taken video, but Chris didn't want to use the rest of his phone battery, since we wanted to have a way to be reached or use the phone if we needed to (like if we were being chased or attacked by javelinas). Anyway, there had to have been 15 to 20 javelinas by the time they were finished crossing. But seeing so many javelinas along with the babies was concerning and a bit scary to me. I didn't want to be near mommy javelinas who were obviously going to want to protect their young. Therefore, I was ready to bail on our little adventure and just head back to the house.

But most terrified? Hmmmm.... I'll have to think more about that.
Who would you most like to be stuck in an elevator with? Um...Bradley Cooper, Robert Downey Jr, Tom Hiddleson, David Tennant...  Do I have to pick just one?

Would you rather go a week without bathing, but be able to change your clothes, or a week without a change of clothes, but be able to bathe?
Euw. I don't think I could do either of those. 

You discover that your wonderful one-year-old child is, because of a mix-up at the hospital, not yours. Would you want to exchange the child to correct the mistake?  I can't answer that question because each of my kids had a genuine "yeah, that's one of ours" stamp on them. We knew we had the right one.
Would you be willing to become extremely ugly physically if it meant you would live for 1,000 years at any physical age you chose?  No. And not just because of the ugly part. This world is messed up enough. A typical lifetime of 80 years (on average) is more than sufficient. 
Would you be willing to commit perjury in court for a close friend? What if your lie would save his life? Oh's one of those "case by case" things. It would depend on the circumstances.
Would you be willing to eat a bowl of live crickets for $40,000?   
Sure. But not on camera.   
Would you be willing to give up sex for five years if you could have wonderfully sensual and erotic dreams whenever you wished?  No.  
Would you be willing to give up sex for one year if you knew it would give you a much deeper sense of peace than you have now?   
Sounds good in theory, but no.

Would you like to have a child much more intelligent and attractive than yourself? Um...I already do! I'm fine with it! lol
If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?  Invisibility.  I'm nosy. 

If you could be any age again for one week, what age would you be? 31-32. I lost weight and was back to where I was before having kids. And I still looked young.  
If you could plan a trip anywhere in the world for yourself and your mate, where would you like to go? 

What outfit or article of clothing do you like to see your spouse wearing the most? I LOVE the black leather jacket I gave him for Christmas two years ago. He looks fabulous in it. It's another reason I'll be sad when the warmer temperatures return.
