Katie, over at Cleared For Takeoff did this little game over on her blog. I thought it would be fun to do my version here. I asked Aaron these questions and he was supposed to respond according to how he thought I would answer.
1. She's sitting in front of the TV, what is on the screen?
He's pretty much right on this one. I watch the Food Network all the time. When Dora's not on of course.
2. You're out to eat, what kind of dressing does she get on her salad?
Italian, but it's different all the time.
He's spot on with this one. I do order different dressings. Usually it's Italian.
3. What's one food she doesn't like?
biscuits and gravy
While it's true I don't care for biscuits and gravy (although sometimes I will eat them), my answer would have been eggs.
4. You go out to eat and have a drink, what does she order?
If I had an alcoholic drink of choice that would be it. Regular drink though it's UNSWEET iced tea 100% of the time.
5. What shirt size does she have?
He's right when it comes to t-shirts. Regular shirts I have to go with a large though.
6. What shoe size does she have?
7 or 7.5, somewhere around there.
7. What's her favorite type of sandwich?
Philly cheese steak
He's right on that one, although I was thinking more in terms of a regular sandwich- in which case it would be a roastbeef/swiss sandwich.
8. What would she eat everyday if she could?
Jalisco's. smothered red burrito
True dat, true dat. Jalisco's is a Mexican restaurant in town...but I'd take a smothered red burrito from just about anywhere.
9. What is her favorite cereal?
Raisin Bran Crunch
That's what I eat every morning :)
10. What would she never wear?
After much consternation he finally chose "stripper clothes" as his answer.
Not what I would've picked, but true enough. I would never wear stripper clothes.
11. What is her favorite sports team?
Huh? Maybe 20 years ago. Where has he been with all the discussions we've had lately over which football teams? But in his defense, I'm not a die-hard fan of anyone. I would really much like to be a UNM Lobo fan but they are too horrible to claim to be a fan of (Jill, take your coach back!) I vascillate between cheering for the Buccaneers, Saints, and just 2 days ago decided I would become a 49ers fan with him. This topic is worthy of it's own blog post.
12. What is something she does that you wish she wouldn't do.
Vacuum when he's watching TV.
He hates that. For some reason that's when I feel the urge to clean and cleaning's not done until you vacuum, right?
13. What is her heritage?
Spanish. How detailed do you want?
There's pretty much no way he could've gotten this wrong. It's true. I am half Hispanic. I can trace my family roots clear back to 1598 when the Spanish explorers sent the first groups of settlers to the area now known as New Mexico but way back then still belonged to Spain. I could provide lots of details. Lots and lots. But no need to bore you. So he's spot on with this one.
14. You bake her a cake, what kind of cake?
Yep, pretty much. I don't like chocolate cake. He really would've been able to answer anything but chocolate.
15. Did she play sports in high school?
Again, pretty easy one. I played volleyball, basketball and track.
16. What could she spend hours doing?
While that is absolutely true, my answer would have been reading.
17. What is the unique talent that she has?
He must've been getting annoyed by this point.
18. What is her type of coffee.
I don't drink coffee, neither of us do.
Answering these types of questions is something that he DOES NOT like to do so I really appreciate him humoring me. Also, keep in mind that I was asking him these questions over the phone as he was traveling to Boulder, CO with 3 other men in the truck.
