What is your spouse’s best feature?
I am sure I will not be the only MilSpouse Friday Fill-In respondent to answer this question with some variation on, “It’s so hard to pick just one!” I wouldn’t have married my husband if I didn’t think he had a staggering number of “best features,” but different aspects of why he is such a great guy jump out at me on different days.
One aspect of my husband’s personality that jumps out at me on quite a few days is his enthusiasm. His excitement over whatever topic has captured his interest — from flying to motorsports to a particularly delicious meal — is contagious. His obvious delight in sharing all these things never fails to cheer me up.
Mild, Medium or Hot sauce?
I like the comfortable range between medium and hot, especially if a flavor like bourbon is involved. I can handle the heat and I do enjoy it, but I’ll choose a milder sauce with more flavor over a one-trick-pony ultra-hot bottle.
What is the worst uniform you had to wear for a job?
The only “uniform” I have ever had to wear for a job (unless we’re counting Civil Air Patrol volunteering) is a set of techie blacks. In theatre, the people working backstage wear black clothing to reduce their visibility when they are skulking around out of the spotlight. Of course, when I was getting paid to be backstage, I was working wardrobe and pretty much kept to the green room, where it did not matter one whit whether I blended into the shadows.
My high school theatre group (in which I met the love of my life, as it so happens) had a joke: “If you paint it black, no one can see it. If you paint it plaid, no one will want to see it.”
You have invisible powers… where is the first place you would go?
To the bathroom, where I would check in the mirror to make sure I was truly invisible.
Can I have force fields, too? The daughter in The Incredibles was pretty cool.
What’s left on your “to do” list for this summer?
Oh, too much to enumerate here. A random sampling:
- Finish my Technician rating in Civil Air Patrol so I can get promoted — gotta get those sweet silver bars on my shoulders 😉
- Choose a flight instructor and begin working toward my private pilot certificate
- Get a head start on knitting gifts for the winter holidays (hope everyone wants to unwrap cute coordinated dishcloth sets, ’cause that’s what they’re all getting)
