Monday Mission baby!
When I was young, my Mom would always drink a cold Dr. Pepper in the morning. Me, I can go either way. I like a Cold Frappucchino in the Summer months and switch to warm Mocha Espresso in the Fall. Do you like to drink warm beverages in the morning or do you prefer yours cold?
I don’t understand people’s unfortunate fascination (err, addiction) with coffee or any caffeinated beverage. I myself love a ice cold glass of orange juice in the morning. At work sometimes I’ll make myself a nice cup of hot chocolate if it’s very cold outside (with marshmallows of course :grin:).
Have you ever been so upset with someone that you wanted to get revenge? What did you do? Or if you didn’t, what would you like to have done?
Yes I have, and I pretty much did to them what they did to me. I an “eye for an eye” mentality when it comes to hurtful things being done to me or those close to me.
Sometimes I can look back at my past and see so many things that I was too naive to take advantage of. A time where I could have moved ahead in my career if only I’d chosen to move, the High School girlfriend who said she would do anything if I just asked, and so on. Looking back, are there any opportunities you missed out on that you can see now but didn’t realize then?
Sometimes I ponder what would have happened to me if I had gone to Massachusetts for school instead of Rutgers. Now that I look back on it, if I had gone down that path, I would be a research chemist and most likely married by now.
Today I tried on my black slacks, and they are just a skosh too tight (yeah it’s a real word, look it up). Of course, I wore them anyway. Are there any clothes you refuse to throw away even though they don’t (and never will) fit? Why do you keep them?
Nope, I actually get rid of a great deal of clothes every year because I either outgrow or wear them so much that they start to fall apart. Thus, I go out and purchase a new work wardrobe.
Although my speech classes eliminated most if it, I still have a little Okie accent left. I say “Git” instead of “Get” and “Collar” instead of “Color.” Do you have an accent? Are there any phrases or words you say that tip folks that “you aren’t from around these parts?”
Since I grew up in a very urban area, every once in a while I’ll start saying stuff that makes me sound like I am from an inner city area. I have found that lot of people I grew up with do not have the greatest of vocabulary and grammatical skills. Then again, I suppose having bad grammar is better than going the drug route some of my friends decided to venture on.
Speaking of phrases, it really drives me nuts when folks say “very unique” (Unique has no degrees, it is either unique or it isn’t) or “irregardless” (not a real word). Are there any words folks misspell or incorrect uses of words that simply drive you insane?
Incorrectly writing their for they’re or there and its for it’s is a big pet peeve of mine. The phrase “Not for nothing…” really irks me too…
I am guilty of using pet names a bit too often, like “honey,” “babe,” and “sweetie.” However, currently, no one uses any pet names on me (and I think I’d like one). Are there any pet names that you like to be called? Any you don’t? Do you (or did you) have any pet names for your partner?
Ever since that infamous Soup-Nazi Seinfeld episode, both Devina and I have called each other “schmoopie”. I know, I know… Shame on us…
BONUS: Why you so fly?
