Random Dozen

It's back! Your Wednesday meme of entertainment and inspiration!  Thank you Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee for hosting this!  If you need to know how to play, go here.

1. Define a great relationship.

One where the first remark out of one’s mouth isn’t the first one out of one’s gut.

2. Why is it called a "drive-through" if you have to stop? (Real question: What was the last food/drink you purchased at a drive-through?)

My kids are always ravenous after fencing class, so unfortunately, McD’s for burgers and shakes…for them.

3. As I type this, the Butler Bulldogs are getting ready to play in the NCAA championship game. Every Hoosier is hysterical about this except me. So in honor of the Bulldogs ... what is your favorite breed of dog? (I tried.)  I don’t have a favorite, but I really don’t like little yappy dogs.  Sorry, Lid!

4. If you had to move to a state besides the one you currently live in, where would you move?  Colorado or New Mexico.  I’ve been to both, but not lived in either.

5. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?  I would have had parents who modeled communication better.

6. Who's the funniest person you know?  Me.  Okay, not really, but sometimes I really crack myself up.  I guess the consistently funniest person I know is A.F. She has a gift for seeing the ludicrous in everything and making it wet-your-pants funny when she retells it. Like the time she was going to give the sermon at church and was really nervous so she went to the bathroom first . . . and dropped her sermon notes in the toilet.

7. Did you get enough sleep last night?  Yes!  We’re back in “school” mode which means the internet router is shut down at 9:30.  Started reading a book and was asleep before 10.

8. What's the first thing you thought about this morning?  The amazing dream I had. We’ve been studying King Hezekiah, and I dreamed I was in Jerusalem with everyone knowing that the Assyrian army was on its way.  I knew I was scared, and yet I knew the end of the story, so I wasn’t.  In my dream I was in a command post type building (think of a war movie with maps and telephones, etc.) and we could hear them outside. One actually looked in, and then just kept moving on. I knew that God had blinded the Assyrian to seeing us.  In reality, the Assyrians didn’t make it as far as Jerusalem, but the dream was really vivid.

9. Grilled or Fried? –HONESTLY  I love fried food. I don’t eat it much, but I love it!

10. Are you afraid of the dark?
No.   For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

11.When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  An archeologist. I loved collecting rocks.  Then I found out archeology involved being out in the sun a LOT and required a lot of math in college so I lost interest.

12. If you had one word to describe yourself , what would you choose? Blessed

Too funny about your friend dropping her notes in the toilet! Maybe God was trying to tell her something? :)

Jill said...

Great answers, and that's a really COOL dream!

Joyce said...

I read before bed too...a great way to fall asleep. My problem these days is more in the staying asleep category. I am loving the nicer weather though...I'm much more active which should help.

Have a nice day!

Pam from alertandorientedx4 said...

YOu need math for archaeology? Say it ain't so?! What a cool dream!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

Thena said...

Great answer for #12.

Melli said...

Number 12 - THAT's the ONE! I SHOULD have said that! That IS the one... :)

That was QUITE the dream you had last night too! I don't EVER get dreams like that! I did get one a few weeks ago where I dreamed 3 of my kids showed up in church one morning! Now I'm praying it was prophetic!!! LOL!

Your funny friend sounds like a riot! We all need a friend like that! (or a kid)

Just Breathe said...

Nel said...

Your friend dropping her sermon notes in the toilet is better than the poor newswoman that time that still had her radio mic on when she went to the BR!

Loved your dream - I always have bizarre ones but none of them are ever Biblical!

#12 That's a great answer, and is fitting of us all!

Great answers (and I'm with you on the yappy dogs).
