On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how polite are you?
Gosh ... That's a tough one because I was raised to be polite to everyone regardless of how brainless, useless, or undeserving the person might be. So ... if I were just to rate myself based on outward behavior, I'd have to say about an eight.
What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud?
"The Simpsons Movie." I saw it last Wednesday and nearly shot soda out of my nose during Bart's nude skateboarding scene.
If you've seen the movie, you know exactly what I mean ...
Who is your favorite cartoon character?
"SpongeBob Squarepants." Everyone who knows me knows about SpongeBob. My cellphone ringtone is the very beginning of his theme ... "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Sponge! Bob! Square! Pants! ..."
Tell about the funniest teacher you ever had.
Ah. That would have to have been Mr. Jay Maness (may he rest in peace) for science in eighth grade and chemistry during my senior year. He was unintentionally funny, but brilliant just the same.
He wore ties that were so wide that they looked like bibs for a lobster restaurant. He also wore some very odd sandals (with black socks) ... I later recognized them as being early versions of Birkenstocks.
He did experiments involving distilled water and a car battery that nearly got him electrocuted, and tried to illustrate displacement by making a rope swing, hanging it from the classroom ceiling, and then trying to swing in it (nearly ripping down a whole bank of lights).
When I student-taught at another local high school, I had the privilege of being his daughter's senior English teacher. Can you imagine THAT Open House? Yep. It was like old folks' day at the home ... Quite a reunion.
