Getting to Know You

So this morning, I thought I'd post a few random questions to find out more about the people who visit our blog. Here are the questions....answers follow.

1. What did you eat for breakfast?
Me: I had scrambled eggs and biscuits and gravy. (yum yum)
Oliver Awesome: Mouse.

2. What are you currently reading?
Oliver: The Legend of the Guardians 

3. What is your favorite color?
Me: Purple
Oliver: Orange.

4. Favorite dessert?
Me: Tiramisu
Oliver: Mouse
Me: Ew.. Seriously, Oliver?
Oliver: Shh.. Get on with the questions.

5. Cats or dogs?
Me: I like both. But if I had to pick, I'd pick dogs.
Oliver: Neither. They are too big to eat.
Me: We're not talking about eating them, Oliver. We're talking about which one you'd like as a pet.
Oliver: Uh, like have you ever seen an owl with a pet? I'm sticking with neither one, thank you very much.

6.. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Me: Flying.
Oliver: Flying is overrated. I'd choose super strength. Then I could try out cats and dogs.

7. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
Me: Night Owl
Oliver: Serioulsy? Do I need to answer this question?

Last question..

8. What did you dream about last night?
Me: It was such a mash-up. It was a combination of my son throwing up to standing in the line at a store. Random, uninspiring dream images.  Oh! there was a murder mystery involved as well.
Oliver: (Yawn) Will tell you later. It's well past my bedtime. Good-day.

    12. It was really weird. It was like a high school dream only I was an adult, but I had to take a test I completely forgot about but my kids were with me and distracting me and my high school boyfriend was there and offered to watch them for me while I finished my test and I was surprised because I had dumped him and wasn't nice about it but I was happy he was being nice and I had finished everything but the final essay question (though I had a strategy for getting it done quickly) and then my husband woke me up.
