Five Question Friday
1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
Nope…not yet. :-)
2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like…first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
Wow…first date? I don’t even remember my first date with my hubby! Plus, we, Koreans, don’t go out on a date until college (well, at least the good and obedient ones *^^*) and I believe I was one of those…well, sort of. So no, I don’t really remember any “formal” first date. All I can remember is that in my junior year in high school, I sat on the bench by Nam-river with a boy that I used to have a crush on in middle school and I think he had his arms around my shoulder. Hmm…if my sisters find out about this… What a scandal! :-)
3. What’s your “silly” fear? (We’re not talking water and heights.)
I always fear that I will be a obnoxiously fat middle-aged woman. :-) I know it’s silly but really! I guess “fear” could be too strong of a word in this situation since it’s all under my control and I really don’t think I’ll ever let myself go there (or my hubby for that matter although it’ll be tricky for him to say, ‘honey, let’s lose some weight together, shall we?’ for that’s like a universal unspoken rule for men not to speak of women’s weight issue….so good luck, baby! You’d better be subtle in your ways *^^*).
4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
Well, let’s see. I confront my hubby all the time so I guess I “cause it” in our relationship. With strangers, I really don’t care so I guess I “run far far away” unless somebody is being harmed and I’m not putting myself in danger by confronting. With friends and family, I tend to “deal with it as it comes” if I’m close to them and “run far far away” if I’m not close. In conclusion, it all depends on the people and situation.
I learned something from a book I read a long time ago called, “Having a Mary Spirit” by Joanna Weaver, that it’s better to carefront than confront. I guess we tend to forget the elements of love as well as patience and understanding when we confront others and it’s always easier for us when we put ourselves in others’ shoes and try to understand and sympathize with them….
5. Wood floors or carpet?
Wood floors. I don’t want to think about all the horrible “stuff” on the carpet that are just disgusting! But then, it really is the same for the wood floors unless you clean them religiously. So I guess what I prefer is any floor type that comes with a maid! :-)
