I’ve asked my own parents these questions. And these questions, too. I wish I would have asked DW’s dad these questions, too. It’s a good way to get a glimpse into the past. Sometimes a past I had no part of. A past before my own d a existence. Wonder where I was before I existed…
It’s too hot to ask questions that deep. Over my head. Off the diving board deep end.
1. What are 3 words your parents would use to describe you?
Moe: Spoiled brat (according to my siblings), Pretty, and a hard worker (I was house cleaning for people when I was 10)
Pop: Good, hard worker (using a pick and sledgehammer when I was 9), Shy
2. How did you meet you meet Pop?
Moe: Taralee (DW) introduced us at Tim Hortons the day she got her driver’s license
3. What was your favorite vacation?
Moe: My trips to Cuba. Was there for 1 week the first time and 2 weeks the second.
Pop: Cuba. I didn’t have to cook or make beds or anything…
4. What’s one memory of DW that makes you laugh?
Moe: I can laugh now, but it wasn’t funny at the time… She wanted a pair of bib overalls and she kicked and screamed and bawled until she got them. Then she cut the legs off them! Also, when she was a baby (I was carrying her) we got off a plane she pooped herself. Her aunt picked her up and shit was running down her leg!
Pop: We had found a chip that was shaped like an ear. We told her there was a recall on potato chips because a guy had died on the assembly line and ended up in the chips.
5. What’s something you miss from “the good ol’ days?”
Moe: Neighbors and lots of company and people around all time. Now there’s barely anyone…
Pop: No worries
6. If you get reincarnated as an animal, what do you hope to come back as?
Moe: A little kitty to crawl into somebody’s lap and they can pet me all day.
Pop: A frog
7. What’s your karaoke song?
Moe: Nothing… I don’t like singing and I don’t know any songs right through. I used to like to sing “Can I Have This Dance” by Ann Murray
Pop: “If I had a Million Dollars”
8. What was high school like for you?
Moe: Terrible, because I didn’t like my homeroom teacher, Mr. Horswell. I didn’t like gym and they made me do it. I also didn’t like French because I couldn’t understand it.
Pop: Boring, because after grade 5 had no interest in school whatsoever
9. What are 3 things (shows, sports, etc…) you like to watch on T.V
Moe: Game shows, Family Feud with Steve Harvey, Wheel of Fortune, Who Wants To be A Millionaire, The Price Is Right, Jeopardy. Oh, and cooking shows like “Master Chef”
Pop: Racing and pretty much any game show…
10. What was your first car? What color was it? Do you remember how much it cost?
Moe: A blue 1987 Ford LTD
Pop: Green ’66 Pontiac Lauretian
I know! I loved hearing those about my DW 🙂
