My challenge should I choose to accept it (which I already did) is to answer a whole host of questions like what used to get thrown down on Facebook, back in the day. I don't recall ever being cool enough to join in the Facebook fun - or maybe I was too cool for School.
I have a FB history that dates back to circa 2007. I remember sitting at my office workstation back in the UK 'chatting' to a uni buddy and her writing LOL... or LMFAO.... or ROFLMFAO before telling me everyone could see our conversation. I must have been writing on her wall or some other FB numpty blunder I'd find my Dad doing.
My Dad wouldn't have been sharing his bedroom exploits of the previous night though (at least - I'd hope not..... Jeez Josie. Why, oh WHY do you go and put a thing like that in your head?)
Needless to say, I was scared off for a while. I think Facebook was frowned upon during office hours anyway. Surfing for holiday deals and shopping on Amazon.com were still fair game in the office but only because the
After checking out how the others handled this blog challenge, it only seemed fitting to put my own spin on things too. I decided to delve back and pull EVERY question that Marcia, Karen and Family Pants had on their lists - dropped a few doozies - and landed somewhere around 50. Then, instead of answering them myself, I got big kid to do it.
I know I lost some of you there. It's like watching kids puke or parrots dance or cats opening the door on AFV; you either think it's funny as sh%t or just a big pile of sh$te. Either way I'm pretty sure big kid's answers are far better than anything I could ever come up with.

Admittedly, it was the hubs that came up with the idea of asking our S-boy. I wasn't sure if we'd get any material worth blogging about (that presupposes anything I write is worth sharing). I mean, how much can a three year old really understand?
A LOT as it turns out, and what he doesn't understand he makes up for in creativity.
Interviewing big kid was an awesome activity for the whole family. Not only was it a good laugh, but it also provided incredible insight into the brain of my 3 year old. We might do it all over again with L-boy tonight just for sh%ts and giggles. I'm dying to hear what my two year old has to say......
Now it's my turn to tag a blogger or two. Hmmmm, let's see........ don't all put your hands up at once.
Stephanie from Mommy, For Real TAG - you're IT!
Kate from Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine... TAG - you're IT!
Kristi from Finding Ninee TAG - you're IT!
And I'm done.
