My friend over at Seeking Elevation is once again up to her Friday trick of answering quiz questions written by sad and lonely teens. We all have to do our part. You can find the quiz at Quizopolis.com
Are you an early riser?
I was till kids turned my life upside-down. Who's idea were they, anyway?
Do you shower before or after work?
Hrms. I am a stay-at-home mom. I don't work. "Work" is easy compared to this gig. You get coffee breaks, talk to adults, get to think and breathe.
I'm pretty sure for most moms (working or non) this here is a trick question.
Wait. What did you ask again?
Do you have a gym mebership?
nope. Three bikes and no car and kids with activities galore. Groceries to buy, libraries to visit, errands to run, cards to mail. I think you get the picture. A gym is a complete and thorough waste of a limited resource: time. And, um, do you have a cold?
Do you go to the gym everyday?
See above. Plus? I hate the gym. Too many creepy people doing unproductive things. Get outside!
Do you take unscheduled breaks at work?
If you count toilet breaks as unscheduled, then yes.
Are you tired during the day?
Are you trying to convince me to go to a gym? Because it isn't working.
Do you stop at a grocery store every day?
No. I avoid them as much as possible, so maybe once a week. I stop at markets when I can.
At week ends you stay home all day in your pajamas watching tv?
A ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ah ahh ehhhhh ...
You have a few drinks in the evening?
I wish I did tonight. It would make this easier.
If you are retired, are you online most of the day?
I am not retired but I am online all day. It makes the rest of my existence possible.
Do you cook?
Part of the current gig.
Do you eat out most of the time?
Do you spend lots of time on the phone?
No. I only have a land line, and it never rings. I think people are land line phobic.
If at work, do you chat online on company's time or texting?
I. Would. Never. get away with this. My small tyrannical bosses were taught the word "hypocrite" as soon as they could say mama.
On a second read-through I am newly curious. Are you making this quiz on your own time or company time?
If there's a party on Sunday night and you have to work in the morning, do you party anyways?
Yep. Because really, it makes the job much easier, especially if one gets good and stinkin' drunk, because then nobody wants to come near.
Do you take a day off from work just so you can go shopping or fishing?
No and no. Sleep is a different story. I'll take it any way I can get it.
Do you feel great when you get up in the morning?
Um ... only on days when I can make my husband get up with the damned kids.
Do you feel like your daily duties are more like KP duty?
THEY ARE PRETTY MUCH KP DUTY thankyouverymuch. GAH!
Do you go to bed before midnight?
Now you are just mocking me.
Do you take an afternoon nap?
If nobody jumps on my head.
This particular quiz (I found it to be more of a scary university survey) was brought to you and me by Bill Greek. Thanks Bill. Now I am a bit wierded out about how little I prefer the gym. Actually, I'd kind of forgotten how much I detest it.
