Q&A with AP, 2
In the spirit of my original Q&A post, I am once again answering all the questions you never asked. I am finding that this type of post is the result of having too many blog ideas, and no real substance for any of them. Wow. Now, if you are still totally stoked to read this entry, be my guest.
Can I buy you a drink?
Abso-freakin-lutely. However, I’m going to have to take a rain check. I don’t believe I’ve mentioned this, but I declared July to be a dry month. I do this occasionally – take a little sabbatical from the bottle – for several reasons: health, sleep, discipline, and simply to make sure that it never owns me. The alco-fast will break over my birthday weekend.
Oh, so your birthday is coming up?
Yes. I’m very, very close to turning 26. I thought that 25 was going to be the hot year – and it totally was – but I have even higher hopes for the next chapter. I hope that life continues to get more and more awesome, and that I never have “the best year ever” until I’m about 75. Then, after life has reached its triumphant pinnacle of mind-boggling awesomeness, I will move to Italy to live out the remainder of my days on the beach.
Are you a free spirit?
Oh, hell no. Absolutely not. A lot of people assume that I am, but they are wrong. Wrong like citrus toothpaste. I am a regimented control freak with a strong need for things to be “just so.” However, I am a big believer in growth, and breaking out of one’s comfort zone, because I am more afraid of regret than I am afraid of failure. So I force myself to act like a free spirit and try new things, even when deep down, I am quaking in my cowgirl boots.
What are your most recent revelations?
That I hate peas, and I hate drinking coffee from a metal travel mug. Both taste gross. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to realize these things, but there they are. They might be temporary feelings. When I was 18, I decided that I hated hamburgers. But after about 5 years, my feelings changed.
Do you remember the movie “Curly Sue”?
To know the answer, you will have to check in tomorrow.
I know. You’ll be waiting with bated breath.
