A Meme from Long Ago

Ronnie reminded me of this meme that I did way back when, and since she shared her answers from then and now, I have done the same. I didn't look to see what I had written in 2009 before I decided on today's answers.

1. I give you money and send you into the grocery store to pick up 5 items. You can only pick one thing from the following departments. What do you choose?

Canned Goods: Italian wedding soup

Produce: Mushrooms
Frozen: PC ice cream
Dairy: Cheese
Meat: Chicken thighs

Comfortable shoes

3. If I were to listen in on one of your conversations throughout the day, what 4 phrases or words would I be most likely to hear?

"You're absolutely right."
"Whatever you say, Sir."
I learned something today; I can go home now."
"When do you want it?"

"Whatever you like."
"Sounds good to me."
"Dinner's ready."
"It's your turn to take the puppy out."

4. So, what 4 things do you find yourself doing every single day, and if you didn't get to do them, you probably wouldn't be in the best mood?

5. You're driving down the road, and suddenly you're hit with this sense of road rage. What 3 factors probably contributed to it?

I've never had road rage. I'm a patient and cautious driver, so I'm sure I've inspired road rage in many others.

I never get road rage. I'm very patient and careful.

Hi Hermione, I remember this meme and enjoyed reading your answers. It's interesting to see which answers have changed and which haven't changed much.
