friday 5: childhood & play

this week's Friday 5
1. What is something that you loved doing as a kid that you hate doing now?
fast food breakfast. sometimes I eat fast food for lunch and it's okay, but I never really find a ton of enjoyment in it, kinda feel bad about myself. and I really almost never eat fast food breakfast sandwiches because I just don't need that much for breakfast and don't like all the sodium.

But when I was like seven or eight I promised myself that when I gained independence I would definitely eat mcdonalds for breakfast ever day. That would mean I'd really made it.

Sometime in college I realized that I could technically do that... but no motivation.

2. What is something that you hated doing as a kid that you love doing now?
Going to the hardware store. My dad was always going there and I just thought he'd take FOREVER and it was SO boring. I don't know why I was so sick of it because honestly the hardware store is the most incredible place. And when I was a little kid, I have memories of shopping places with my dad, holding his hand and being excited. And now I love doing about anything with my dad. But someplace in between, I just had no interest.

3. Do you still play (in the childhood sense of the word)?
Writing website code is the closest thing I do to independent play. And I play with my kids... does that count? Josie can play dice games now. We got out the wooden train set this week and had a blast. We like building things with blocks, Olive can say "house" when she builds some odd structure. That's all a lot of fun.

4. If not, what is stopping you?
5. If so, what do you like to play?

C'mon friday 5, I think 3-5 are basically one question. Need to step up the game.

I'm sorry you didn't like the 3-5 questions. I've gotten some really interesting answers for 3 -5. Perhaps you'll like the next batch better.

that was meant to be very tongue-in-cheek, I loved the topic today!

Oh, thank heavens... I was so afraid I'd offended you with my silliness.

There was a posting mix up (on my end) and you should check out the other set of questions put up for today. Needless to say, I think you might find them right up your alley.

Hey, unrelated to your post, I just wanted to say thank you for the review on Amazon. I'm really glad you enjoyed the book. :-)

I thought about your fast food breakfast thing the other day as I was talking to my 5 year old son about factory farmed chicken (and why we don't buy it) and he said something like "when I'm an adult I'll be able to decide for myself to buy factory farmed chicken if I want to".
