Wednesday's Random Dozen

1. What is your favorite Mexican dish?  Chicken Enchiladas
 2. When you were a kid, did you get started on your homework right away after school, or did you procrastinate? Well, I never remember having the kind of homework that kids today have, but I always did it shortly after getting home.  I just wanted it "over with."  I'm appalled at the amount of homework some teachers give today.  Just seems a bit "over the top" to me. 

3. What is your favorite store for home furnishings? Uh, I have a lot of favorites, but we have the greatest place here called Mer Rouge Wholesale (it's open to the public) and I can always seem to find such great treasures there for very affordable prices. They have everything from furniture, rugs, silk flowers, ribbon, containers, wall decor, you name it and they have it.

4. When you were young, did you like school lunches? Oh yes, and I distinctly  remember the hot rolls and I would pour honey on mine. Talk about good!  I do not remember ever taking my lunch to school.

5. Is religion a crutch? I gave this a whole lot of thought before answering.......a crutch is a much needed item if one has been injured and cannot walk. So, yes religion could be looked upon as a crutch in that context. I am not nearly as bound to my religion as I am to the God I serve, the one and only Christ Jesus. He gives me a reason to live each day, He sees me through the darkest valleys of my life and gives my life purpose. Without Him I would be nothing and with Him I can face any challenge that comes my way. He has proven to be a crutch that I cannot live without.

6. In your region, what is the "big" (most popular in the community or state) high school sport? Oh, my goodness, FOOTBALL is the "be all, do all" here. I truly do not "get it" but nonetheless, that's the way it is.

7. Do you consider yourself rich? In houses and land, no. In family and friends, yes!

8. Which of these would you have the best chance for success in administering:
B) Heimlich Maneuver
C) Changing a flat tire
I've been trained to do all 3 but would feel the most comfortable in changing a flat tire since it most probably would not be a "life or death" situation.~smile~

 9. Which dance would you prefer to learn & why:
A) Salsa
B) Hip Hop
C) Waltz
D) Swing
Oh, the Waltz! I think it is so beautiful to watch, especially when both parties are "into" it and move with one fluid motion. Doubt I could ever carry it off but I can dream.

 10. What's the worst news you've ever delivered to someone? On Nov. 29, 2008 I had to call my youngest brother and tell him that our Mom had had a massive stroke and probably would not live over it. It still hurts my heart to recall that moment.Our Mom passed away 2 days later.

11. Name something you learned in college that had nothing to do with classes or academics.

That being away from home and parents was not nearly as much fun as I had anticipated it to be, the adjustment was hard, but it was a part of the"growing up" process.

12. New variation on an old question: If there's a song in your head that just won't get out, what is your favorite (or most repeated) line in that song? 

I do not have a clue ~smile~

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Love your answer to the religion question--AMEN, I cannot imagine living without the hope of salvation and the "crutch" of Jesus! I proudly lean on Him!

    As for Mexican food, it used to be chimichangas but now that I am not eating much meat or dairy, my favorite is when I decide to be "bad" and have a cheese burrito! Now I have a hankerin' for some Mexican food. It's no wonder I seem to have plateaued in my weight loss!

  2. I think of the crutch that is in my basement, no longer necessary because the injury has healed, so I went the other way...but in essence, I agree. Jesus, not religion...

    My son started football this year, and in some ways, I don't get it either, but I do see it making him much more of a team player and wanting to be part of something bigger than himself. It's all good. Well, except for the broken arm.

  3. Love all your answers today CiCi! have a good day!
