Five Question Friday

Another edition of Five Question Friday. Hope you all enjoy it.

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?

We all have accents. Go to London or Syndey and ask the locals if you have an accent, and they'll probably tell you that you do. I once interviewed some Australian teens who were here for some baseball tournament and I asked them about their accents and if people had problems understanding them. I was mostly joking of course but the kid I was talking to shot back "Accents? We don't have accents. You do." So I do speak with an accent.

And speaking of accents...

2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, desk)

Yes. I have the power to do that... when I don't wear my C-PAP. Do you not know that I wear a C-PAP? My old-school readers know that as I've blogged about it before. When I don't wear that wonderful piece of machinery, I do fall asleep anywhere. In fact, just the other day I dozed off at the kitchen table. While I was writing on my laptop. At 3... p.m. Uh, yeah, I'm magical that way.

Long story short, I have sleep apnea, which causes my windpipe to slowly close shut while I sleep, forcing me to stop breathing which in turn makes me wake up. I don't ever get into deep sleep without the C-PAP, with it I do. This was actually worse for me when I was 300-plus pounds as I had severe obstructed sleep apnea but 120 pounds lighter I just have a moderate case of it. Yay for weight loss.

3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?

Yes and yes if I have to. You know, I love absolutely everything about being a dad to two daughters. Some things are tough, like having to do their hair and all their clothes and things like that, I'm just lost. Like, good luck having me match up outfits for them to wear. But the one thing that I hate is the bathrooms. I hate that they have to go into men's bathrooms because they are downright flithy. I hate that while my daughter is using a bathroom, some stinky grimy yucky man is nearby... ugh. Totally. Grosses. Me. The. Eff. Out. I mean, if it's just some guy like me or some younger kid or an older composed man, fine, but the dirty slovenly types... gross.

I try and make the seat as good as possible. I will clean it off and then I always have them sit on that cover thing. But it pretty much sucks no matter what. The best bathrooms are the family bathrooms. Those are awesome but sadly not in abundance.

4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?


I would say more but I fear I've said too much already.

5. Where did you and your significant other go on your first date?

Our first official first date? Well, we went to hang out at Carl's Jr. once, and then we went to Jack in the Box shortly after but we weren't together. Damn, with me whining and dining her like that, I wonder why not.

You are funny. Oh, and women's bathrooms can be just as gross!

Awesome! My first date with my hubby consisted of a football game, followed by a trip to Krispy Kreme and then sharing a 2 cheeseburger meal from McDonalds.

I met my husband while working at Jack in the Box. Every year our girls tell us we should eat there for our anniversary....we haven't yet!
How funny to want to get stuck with Shakira...come to think of too! She is super sexy!! We could do the Waka Waka dance together...well, she could teach me! Ha!
Have a great weekend!
