1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
My most recent scar is from my own dog. I was sitting at the dinner table and her mouth came up from under the table, full of teeth like an alligator. She grabbed my arm and broke the skin. She’s a border collie/blue heeler mix and jumpy and bitchy. I don’t know why she did it, but I must have provoked her by moving my foot or something.
2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
A wall hanging that my friend Tarri made me out of milkweed and large gray beads from the car seat covers she bought that fell apart on her. A poster of Cody, Wyoming, and of course 5 pictures of Johnny Depp that I run toward on my treadmill.
3. DO YOU SNORE, GRIND YOUR TEETH, OR TALK IN YOUR SLEEP?
Nah, but I do suffer from chronic gassiness.
4. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?
Whatever the kids put on the radio in my car. I have given up fighting for what I want to listen to. Alternative, folk, maybe some rock. And once in a great while Vanilla Ice, just for the memories.
5. DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME YOU WERE BORN?
10:41 on a Monday morning. My mother’s only story about my birth is that she was hallucinating about my dead grandfather being there.
6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?
I want my family to be close, healthy, and happy. And by family I mean my three daughters and my love.
7. WHAT DO YOU MISS?
All those good friends I have left behind and all those friends I will soon be leaving as I move along on my journey.
8. WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION?
Can you ever really own anything? I do like my bed. It’s so comfy. And I do love this ring that Nick gave me when I last saw him. But most things I’m just giving away before I move.
9. HOW TALL ARE YOU?
5’6″ and still taller than all of my children.
10. DO YOU GET CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
No, although I do have a ridiculous fear of heights and I will hyperventilate on class trips hiking up scary mountains in front of 70 fourth graders.
