Hi! I'm Bonnie and I blog over at The Life of Bon! This is me:
2. You have a 10 minute speech to give at a high school, what is it about?
I teach high school English, so this question is right up my alley. I would tell them how uniquely special they are and that life gets better after high school and that they are smart and funny and can do anything they put their minds to. I'd tell them the world is full of opportunities for them and that they are talented and have worth and value and their lives have incredible purpose.
Yes, kinda sappy. But I think high schoolers need it. They're such a special group of people and I adore them
3. What is your greatest accomplishment?
I can stick a noodle up my nose and out my mouth. BOO- YAH!
4. Who do you admire?
My husband for being so passionate and motivated
My mom for never feeling sorry for herself for a second after my dad died.
Nat the Fat Rat and CJane for being my blogging idols.
Myself for putting up with 240 pubescent teenagers every day.
Any person who runs for president of the U.S.A. because that's just cray cray.
5. Tell us about a time you were incredibly embarrassed.
Thanks to my father in law, I've got a bucketful of these! I would have to say it is a tie between these two things. Which one do you think is more embarrassing?
a. in front of 300+ wedding dinner guests my pop in law went on and on about how difficult it was to conceive my husband, Greg. There were details about trying to impregnate Greg's mom. Pop in law then pulled out a jock strap from when his younger softball playing days and said it was the jock strap's fault for lowering his sperm count. Mortified is to put it lightly.
b. Two weeks after we were married, father in law came over to dinner and proudly announced, "Well! No one is a virgin at the table anymore!"
So like I said... it's hard to know which one to pick.
6. What is your worst puke story?
I have puked in just about any situation you can imagine. I've got the weakest stomach ever created (Hello, never getting pregnant!). Probably my best story is from my very first day of college. I was feeling sick so I rested my head on the desk in a Spanish class. The Spanish teacher kept yelling at me to sit up but because it was in Spanish I didn't know what she was saying. When I finally understood that she was yelling at me, I sat up just in time to puke Honeycomb all over the floor. I ran out of the classroom and never returned. Literally never. I dropped the class.
I used to practice kissing on a wooden post. It was all sorts of gross tasting, but I thought it absolutely necessary if I was ever going to grow up to be a fantastic kisser. I was only 9, give me a break!
Oh, and Alycia and I up and decided to give one of you readers a $50 gift card to Forever 21. Just in time for spring shopping!
