Five on Friday - There’s a Wriday on Your Friday

1. Dr. Seuss’s first published book was And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street!. What’s the most interesting thing you’ve witnessed on your street?

Our neighbors dog is let out not in their backyard to do her business, they let the dog out through the front door to go out and wander around and of course take care of business; I watched her and she goes far, but she does come back home. I'm afraid one of these days, someone is going to pick her up and take her. She's cute! Also, about 5 years ago, I was outside of my front yard when suddenly this van turns to my street, the driver was speeding, lost control and hit the neighbors back tree and fence!! And the baby who was riding in the back of the van, who was supposed to have been strapped to the car seat, flew to the front! Yep, I freaked out and call 911. The driver denied that the baby came out of the seat, but the police took my word for it and charged her. My neighbor two houses down from me walks his chihuahua in his PJ's, not very pretty either.

2. In The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, a boy removes his hat to pay respect to the passing king, but each hat is somehow replaced by a bigger, fancier hat. If you’re a hat person, what’s your current favorite? If not, under what circumstances did you last wear a hat?

My favorite hat is a beach hat! I don't wear them very often but I love them. The last time, I wore one was in Costa Rica. memories....

3. In If I Ran the Zoo…, a boy fantasizes about how fantastic the zoo would be under his administration. What’s your local zoo like, and how do you like it?

I'm not a fan of Zoo's at all, I go there because John loves the Zoo, but when he makes me go, I choose to go to the Ft. Worth Zoo, is pretty neat. Dallas Zoo stinks.

4. In Green Eggs and Ham, the main character refuses to taste a certain dish until, just to get Sam to leave him alone, he gives in and discovers that he likes it. When did something like this happen to you?

I read this book to Sofia in Spanish, "Huevos Verdes con Jamon." She loves it! At any rate, John loves to try any type of "international" food there is, I do not. I remember the last time he begged me to try a certain food was "Hummus." I still recall that day, John took me to a Mediterranean restaurant and he begged me to try it just once. Until, I did and...I LOVED IT! I told him how foolish I was not to even try it, basically I was Sam.

5. The Foot Book contains a lesson about judging others based on their feet. Feet seem to be something people have widely polar opinions about! How do you feel about feet, and can you think of someone in your life who has especially nice feet?
In my opinion, nice feet equals trim toe nails and smooth heels. If your heel is cracking, yuck! That's just my thing. "Put some lotion in your body!" (Silence of the Lambs - Memorable Quote)
