The sly and devilishly clever Amorous Rocker deemed me worthy of attention, and agreed to interview me. So, she's sent me 5 questions that I'm going to answer for all of you.
If you want to play along, feel free to tell me in comments, and I'll figure out 5 questions to ask you, and you can post them on your blog and link..
Anyway, onto the questions:
1.) If you could get any car in the world for free, with the insurance payments covered for as long as you have the car, what car do you want and why?
I have always loved the time I was able to drive a Porsche Boxter. Since then, I've really compared each and every car I drive to that machine, and so far they've all come up lacking. I guess that answers the question, don't you think?
2.) You mention your wife from time to time on your blog. ;) She seems like quite the character and I don't mean that to be insulting or negative. What are three things about your wife that make you smile?
She's got the best sense of humor. There are times when I'm totally sarcastic and a complete ass, and she GETS that. Don't ask me how, but she's able to deal with me and my 'tudes.
She's a wonderful mother. I've seen how much she cares for my kids, and it nearly chokes me up each time I think about how much more she cares for those kids than their own biological mom does. I can't even begin to love her enough if only just for this one thing alone!
Lastly, she's adventurous. She's willing to run off for a quick escape. She's the one to plan the road-trips. She makes time for the quick getaway. Spontinaiety is something she majors in. Me? I have to have a plan. I have to have rules.. She just balances out my old man attitude with younger emotions and feelings. It rocks!
3.) If you won a million dollars but the catch was that you couldn't spend a dime of it on yourself, what would you do with it?
Easy. I've got a wife and kids to take care of. They're not me! I also have some in-laws that I would kill for, so they'd be guaranteed to get some good tratment. I'd also see about taking over care of my grandmother, who's in a care facility now, since she's unable to do many household chores herself anymore. I really don't like what my uncle's been doing.. Anyway, I'd be sure to go through all of that cash in a couple of years!
4.) Do you ever worry about if you're being a good enough father to your kids?
Of course! I don't really know of a dad that doesn't worry about this at one point or another! I just hope and pray that they'll look back at their childhood and realize that they were happy, loved, and cared for.
5.) What is one thing you would like to change about yourself and why?
I'd love to be able to change my educational background. I never got the chance to finish my college education, and I'd really like at some point to be able to say that I went in there, did what was needed, and took home the paperwork, you know? I'd also like to be able to show my kids that education isn't just words that I'm telling them, it's something I actually believe in and did myself.
Anyway, there's my interview, and I hope you all find this just a little bit more interesting than the drivel I've been scribbling these last couple of weeks.
