47. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? Every one’s
And a couple of other things–It really bugs me that some of the questions aren’t in all caps, and some end with a colon & some with a question mark, but it took me long enough just to fill this out & do the green/purple thing that I’m not going to go back & fix it. And, I just hope I got all my typos because that’s another thing that bugs me. And, this wasn’t what I was originally going to blog about, but I had gotten so many of these recently, I decided to do it & now I don’t have time to do the other, original plan. And, if you’re one of those people who notice stuff like numbering, the questions I left out were of the “who do you think will send this back?” variety.
Oh well, hope you enjoyed reading all about me, me, me. 🙂 After all, it is my blog and all about me!
One thought on “A couple of MeMes”
I enjoyed reading the answers to your questions. You’re such a sweet and funny woman!!! I can’t wait to spend more time with you and have our friendship grow.
