Food 4 Thought Friday

Still playing along to this meme on Fridays, as I guess the Friday Feast is not returning. This one has fun questions every week, so I’m glad I found it. You can go check it out here if you want to join in!

Food 4 Thought Friday

If you were to choose a new name for yourself what would it be and why? Were there any other names your parents almost gave you?
Gosh, I have no idea. I wasn’t particularly fond of my name growing up, but I am not sure any kid is. My problem stemmed from the fact that people couldn’t spell it correctly (always adding an e, or ending it with an ie instead of a y), plus my maiden name was always getting messed up too. Plus, apparently there are guys named Stacy. I got put in the boys gym class when I changed schools in the 7th grade. Not cool. I don’t remember any names I wanted to be, although I had names picked out for my kids at an early age. If my parents were going to name me anything else, I never heard it. We didn’t tell stories or tales of any kind in our family 🙂

How do you usually spend your Sunday afternoons?
This time of year, it’s easy to answer this question – football! Other times of year it varies. Tim doesn’t like to be “cooped up in the house” so we sometimes go out shopping or running errands. Sometimes he will go play golf. But right now, we watch football!

What would be your last meal if you were about to walk the green mile?
Good grief, I couldn’t pick one thing, I guess I’d have to have a smorgasbord of some of my favorites like shrimp, crab legs, chinese food, etc. And dessert, must have dessert – something chocolate or tiramisu or cheesecake 😀

Midnight Snack
Have you ever broken any bones?
Nope. And I certainly hope it stays that way!

Recipe for this Week (instead of your recipe for life – what is it for just this week?)
Roll with the punches :mrgreen:

  1. Gail Said,

    You’re right, we didn’t tell tales or stories much in our family! I do remember that I wanted to change my name when I grew up, never ever liked it! But now I wouldn’t change it to what I wanted to as a child, not sure what I’d pick if I had to pick something else. No one ever got our maiden name right, still doesn’t…..I have to spell it constantly if I’m asked.
    That last meal thing is kinda depressing to me for the morning!

  2. Sally Said,

    I haven’t broken any bones yet either!

  3. annie Said,

    No stories?
    Mine was opposite, my maiden name was easy and my married name is one that has to be repeated and is misspelled often… too bad I couldn’t convince matt to take my name …

  4. Simply Dawn Said,

    That was cute 😉 Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  5. Sandra Said,

    Great answers, it was fun to read 🙂

  6. Debi Said,

    I think you’re right…few kids ever like their names. Hate mine. Still do, sort of. And no one ever spells “Debi” right either. Nor did anyone ever spell my maiden name correctly. With my married last name, people always ask, “Is that with a “v” or a “ph”?”

  7. Karen Said,

    I have the simplest last name and I’m still asked to spell it. I thought life would be easier when I didn’t have to spell my maiden name anymore!

    I didn’t mind my first name, but I did often wish for a middle name. My parents didn’t give any of us middle names! So when I was confirmed I took that name and made it legal.

    Fun questions:)

  8. Susanne Said,

    I always love the name Lisa. I had several dolls over the years that inherited that name. I like my name but don’t like some of the shortened variations of it like “Susan”. And people are always misspelling it, using a “z” instead of an “s”.

    No broken bones here either.
