I just had to throw in another picture that our friend, Jay, took. Again, more on that later.
Interview with my hubs, Tom. Here ’tis.
When did you first know you loved me? “These are hard. I didn’t know it would be like this. THAT’s what you’re gonna write?! I love it. Umm…Probably when I realized that days were better with you than without you.” (Aww!)
If you could change one thing about me, what would it be? “(shakes head) This is the most loaded question ever. (Checks phone. Fiddles with laptop. Clearly stalling.) I’m thinking. I’m trying to think how to word this because you’ll type it. Probably your distorted view of yourself. And you can’t change that answer. You can’t put an aside. Otherwise, I’m gonna quit.”
What about yourself? (Looks at me strangely.) “What about myself? (me laughing and typing.) What? Oh, what would I change about myself. Umm..my, um, compulsive behavior seems to be getting worse with age.”
What is one food you think I could not live without? “Chips.” (Me: “That was easy.”) “You made that easy.”
And what food could you not live without? (Thinking…Thinking…) “Probably Cinnamon Toast Crunch.”
Why do I love food so much? “Because it keeps you from being bored. That’s what you do when you’re bored.” (Huh. I did not know he thought that. But he’s probably right.)
What is your favorite nickname I have for our dogs? “Baby Boo Boos is NOT a favorite. I don’t like any of your nicknames for them.”
If you were born in another time, what time do you think you would best fit it? “The late ’60s, Early ’70s.”
What time would I best fit in? “2120.” (Me: “WHAT?!” Tom: Laughter) “Umm..probably somewhere in the Antebellum times in the South. Just because you’re very much…Southern. And I think you’d get your kicks out of riding horses and talking with your Southern accent.” (I do like riding horses. And I do have an accent, or so I’m told.)
If we moved to another country where would we go? “Lebanon.” (Me: No, we wouldn’t. Tom: laughter) “Jamaica.” (Now he’s talkin’. =) )
If you had to be one character from any movie, but it can’t be Obi-Wan from Star Wars, because I know you’ll choose him, who would you be and why? “Clark Kent because he’s freaking Superman.”
And who should I be? “Dobby.” (Me: “That is so mean!” Tom: Laughter) “Not someone who’s the strong, silent type.” (Big grin from him. He’s enjoying all these chances to poke fun at me.) “It might be Arwen from Lord of the Rings. Because I think you’d make that sacrifice for the people that are closest to you.”
If you could have one chore that you’d never have to do again, what would it be? “DISHES.” (He says as he’s doing dishes.)
If you could never need to do one thing for your body again, what would it be? “I would like to require less sleep so I could have more time to do things.”
Which leads me to my next question. What is more important to you having a good day: coffee or a good night’s sleep? “Dude. They’re compliments. That’s like asking a bird whether he needs his left wing or his right wing to fly.”
Do you regret marrying someone who constantly interrupts your sleep with talking, walking, moving around, singing, humming, laughing, and sometimes even crying in her sleep? (Big pause) “I don’t regret it. I didn’t expect it.”
Do you wish this interview was over? “It’s gettin’ a little long.”
Thanks for reading! Please feel free to leave Tom more questions in the comments. We will both be available for answering !
