Since I only got two questions when I posted the opportunity to ask me anything I’ll answer them now rather than later in the week.
Allie asked: What was your favorite book as a kid?
My mother tells me it was a book about houses but she doesn’t remember the name of it. I don’t remember it at all so I don’t know either. But I do know she used to read me The Little Engine that Could.
On a semi-related note, my favorite song as a kid was Silent Night. My mother used to sing it to me every night when she would tuck me in, after we said my prayers.* I wanted her to sing “the WHOLE song!” so she had to find the lyrics. It has four verses. And she sang it year round.
Peppy asked: What is your favorite ice cream?
Butter crunch hands down. Hard to find in the grocery store though.
*Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Please god bless Mommy, Daddy, MJA, Me [I said my name], Nana and Papa, and all my friends and family.
For a while I was saying *everyones* name but my mother insisted god understood whom I meant when I said “all my friends and family.”
