Call and response.

So I got tagged. Isn't that something? Thanks, MA. I've never been asked to participate in one of these things before, so I suppose it's a bit of an initiation, which is either a good or a bad thing. I'm a terrible joiner. Still, it's a simple thing, answering a meme, because the hard work is already done for you and you get to talk about yourself, which is everyone's favorite subject deep down. It's like you've been dragged, kicking and screaming, to the stand where you are made to reveal personal qualities, disorders, and desires. Thank you. Here I am.

A- Available or Single: None of the above. Unless there's money involved.

B- Best Friend: Unfortunately, outside my wife, my friends fall into the category of "wow, it's been a long time." I like to think I have a network of about five friends that I've known from youth who fill that role.

C- Cake or Pie: Pie. Hands down. Blueberry pie.

D - Drink of Choice: I'm assuming alcoholic drink here. After Pinot Noir, probably a margarita.

E- Essential Items: Book, notepad, bike helmet.

F- Favorite Color: Gray.

G- Gummi Bears or Worms: Bears over worms, but neither over chocolate.

H- Hometown: Ho ll i days burg, PA. Born and raised.

I- Indulgence: Art supplies, books.

J- January or February: February.

K- Kids: Two.

L- Life is incomplete without: Family, friends, vacation.

M- Marriage Date: 22 June 1997.

N- Number of Siblings: Two, both younger.

O- Oranges or Apples? Oranges.

P- Phobias/Fears. Balloons popping, certain types of heights (climbing ladders, ferris wheels) but not others (buildings, mountains, roller coasters).

Q- Favorite Quote: Whatever is done out of love always occurs beyond good and evil.

R- Reasons to smile: My children.

S- Season: Summer.

T- Tag Three: No. It's all about me, remember?

U- Unknown Fact About Me: Unknown by whom? Aren't we all strangers to ourselves?

V – Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals? Selective oppressor of animals; I don't eat pork or beef, except on certain moments of incredible weakness when I can't resist a little biscuits and sausage gravy.

W- Worst Habits: Miserable work ethic, willingness to start and then abandon projects.

X – X-rays or Ultrasounds: Huh? Neither I hope.

Y- Your Favorite Foods. Grilled salmon, steamed mussels, fried chicken, asparagus.

Z- Zodiac: Aquarius.

There you have it.

Now we know you so much better. And you've been married for nearly ten years. That's wonderful and inspirational. Hooray!
