You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”
Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past four years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- Flip-flops or Crocs?
Slippahs, brah! And not just any ol’ flip-flops, because I only wear Reefs. They’re super squishy and mold to your feet after you’ve worn them for a bit. Like walking on fluffy clouds, ahhh! My friend Cindy introduced me to them years ago, and now I can’t wear anything else.
- Do you like to drive fast?
No. No. Wave “hi” to me as you zip by me in the slow lane driving like a granny. I have no desire to break speed limits. It doesn’t do anything for me.
- Have you ever broken your nose?
Nope (*knocks on wood*).
- Can you remember the last time you slept outside?
Gosh, it’s been a long time. Last time was over 10 years ago, I think, when I visited a friend in Montana. Big surprise, I’m not really a “let’s sleep in the wilderness for fun!” kinda person. I lurve mattresses and climate control and indoor plumbing. Plus, whenever I do go camping or sleep outside, somehow I always manage to pick a spot that has lots of little rocks that I don’t feel until I’m trying to fall asleep.
- Peplum tops?
Yeah, I think they can be really cute with skinny jeans or shorts. I don’t have one yet, but I want one.
- Are you a pink kinda gal/guy?
Sure am! I like all shades of pink, but hot pink is probably my favorite for makeup, clothing and accessories.
- I would be the world’s worst ____.
Bus driver. I mean, I can barely drive my Mazda! Plus, I can’t imagine having to be responsible for a huge vehicle that can’t do u-turns, has no side visibility and is filled with people who aren’t wearing seat belts. Oh, and driving that thing in the rain? No thanks.
I’m also pretty sure I’d be the world’s worst cop. “But I didn’t do anything, officer!” My answer: “Ok, I believe you.”
- How’s your summer going so far?
It’s been really good. June flew by, didn’t it? I’m looking forward to a few trips this month and August. I’m going to La Jolla in San Diego for a surf trip with Cindy (the gal I mentioned earlier who introduced me to Reefs), up to Redding to visit El Hub’s family, and then to Kauai in August.
- A discontinued makeup or beauty product that you still pine for?
Chanel Candy Glow Aqualumiere — the perfect pinkish peach gloss.
- Afternoon Starbucks run! What can I get you?
I’ll take a Venti iced green tea, extra sweet, please.
