Five Question Friday

It's that time...
It's Finally Friday!!!!!

If you want to play, copy the questions, post them,
& then link up with Mama M.

1. What is your favorite thing about summertime?
Oh do I love the Fall. Georgia Heat KILLS ME! This past week our heat index was 115. OUCH! It feels like an oven! But... what I DO look forward to, is the Water. I LOVE sitting on a sandbar eating watermelon, drinking a cold one, with good people to enjoy the time.  I love boat riding!!! It's so much fun!!!

Me, Aaron & Jackson [Our Dog..Long Story] Summer 09'

Playing on the Beach - Football, Frisbee, or HorseShoes
Or being on the Water in General...

I Looooooove CRUISE'S!!!
Love em' Love em' Love em'!!!!

& last, but definitely NOT least...
I love wearing Summer Dresses...
I have more dresses in my closet than anything else...
I'm a dress kinda girl!


2. What is your ideal retirement location (if money didn't matter)?To be honest, I don't think I'd wanna move anywhere. I DO know.. I want to travel as many times & see MANY places possible all around the world... and then just come back home... To Ellabell!

3. Do you live in the same town you grew up in?
Sort of - I've grown up in the same county. Richmond Hill & Ellabell/Pembroke are Bryan County... As a little girl, I knew life in the city [Richmond Hill]... Later... We moved to Ellabell. Ellabell is where I call Home [The Counrty Side].
Which is where I graduated from High School, & Yes... we plan to live here... probably forever!
So, not really.. but Sort of!

4. What nervous habit did you have as a child that you kicked to the curb before becoming an adult?
I wasn't ever nervous... I was A.D.D & A.D.H.D - & haven't been able to kick it to the curb! I was the kid that made everyone want to pull their hair out.

5. What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to you while on the job?Ohhhh Geez, which time? I'm always making a goober out of myself. The one that stands out the most is... many, many years ago I worked at Cracker Barrel, through College, as a server.. one of the nights I had to work we were slammed. My body couldn't pase fast enough, my head couldn't think straight, and my words were scrammbled!... Let me repeat myself, my words were scrammbled!
SO, on with my story. As I've said, we were slammed. I'm pretty sure I had 5-6 different tables at one time, that was normal at Cracker Barrel. I was really happy to see this old couple sit at my table.. Thinking to myself  "Ohhhh, only two people... and they are old... maybe they will take their time so I can catch up..." As I walk to their table I'm greeting them 90 to nothing... I talk fast on a regular base, so you can only imagine.. or can you??? I don't remember exactly, why I was tellling them about pork chops, I don't think there was a "specific" night were pork chops were served, maybe it was just a special... ANYWAY!!!!
I  can ramble, can't I? So I'm tlaking to this couple & going 90  to nothing.. something like this : - Hi, My name is Jessica, I'll be your server tonight. Can I start you off with a sweet tea, coffee, or a coke? [that was my intro...always]
[and if servers want to hurry the process, we would try and take the order on the first stop] Okay great! Tonight our special is, Fart Pork Chops...........

THat's right, I blurted out FART Pork Chops.. as the lovely couple was looking gracefully at their menus... they just looked up at me, over their bifocials... something like this.....
only they were sitting at Cracker Barrel.

Nope.. that's not it!!! Everything was going so fast.. I didn't know what to do. Do I just apologize? or Just skip over it? ....
I skipped over it.. STUPID! I could feel my face screaming, I'm humilated!!!!!
So, nothing was said.. I only received really confused looks.
They said they would take a minute, of COURSE! So I get their drinks, come back... start to take their order and the gentleman says...
"I'll have the FART PORK CHOPS."
You can only imagined the look... &&& I busted out laughing, & so did the couple!
It was awful.. I was beat red & I don't think I will EVER forget that couple!
