Random Dozen

1. How good are you at delaying gratification? Pretty Good, I guess it depends on what I'm holding out for.

2. Maybe a marshmallow wouldn't be too difficult a temptation for you. What food (or anything else) would be most tempting? Chocolate layer cake.....excuse me I think I hear the kitchen calling me. Drat the power of suggestion.

3. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being saintly) how patient are you? My momma taught me to be kinder than necessary so on a scale of 1-10 I'd be an 8 or better.

4. Have you ever waited for something in life only to be disappointed upon realization of the goal/object/etc.? Who hasn't experienced that at one time or another. I have a very vivid imagination so I can dream up all kinds of wonderful expectations that real life would have a hard time trying to compete with.

5. Are you a person who takes shortcuts? Depends on how knowledgeable I am and if I have time restraints. If there is something that will save time and be acceptable yes, I will take shortcuts.

6. Which line is hardest to wait in? Anything that has to deal with the Federal Government.

7. Did you wait to discover the gender of your unborn child until its birth? My kids were born before there was the technology to all three were surprise packages!

8. Are you more patient with children or the elderly? preschoolers and the elderly

9. Did you ever sneak a peek at a present? Of course....if it's a present it needs to be opened!

10. What is the longest you've ever waited for anything? We were married for 4 years and told we wouldn't have children before our first was born. In this age of instant everything it was a long time to hope and pray.

11. Who has more patience, you or your significant other? Me,me, me, and me, Mr. Wonderful is used to fixing things and can usually figure things out quickly. He doesn't deal with frustration well, but bless his heart, he is getting better.

12. Which of the following songs about waiting is your pick for the best? (OK, you may substitute another, if you like.)

A) Anticipation by Carly Simon definitely my song. I love the thrill of anticipation. It will keep me going for a long time! Not to mention I'm a huge Carly Simon fan.
B) The Waiting by Tom Petty
C) Right Here Waiting for You by Richard Marx
D) Wait for Me by Rebecca St. James

One day when we're both skinny we're going into your kitchen and bake a cake and together we will eat the WHOLE thing - while it's still WARM! Mmmmm... we might even have a scoop (or two) of ice cream on the side... (talk about imagination!)

The technology was not there with Amanda - but it was there with the younger 3 -- just not reliable! Dennis wanted to know with the twins - so I let him... but they were wrong on both - and thus they were right -- but... they were WRONG on both!

Oh that cake looks so yummy! I'm with you on #6, but my hubby just got a job with the IRS so I decided to restrain myself. :)
