You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”
Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- On a typical day, what kind of clothes do you wear?
I’m starting week three of temporary baby jail today, and one thing I’ve learned so far is that I absolutely need to get out of my pajamas, take a shower and put on real clothes in the morning in order to function during the day; otherwise, I feel like absolute crap.
I dunno… Maybe the act of putting on jeans temporarily erases the fact that I’m not getting any sleep?
Anywho, to make a short story exceptionally long, on a typical baby jail day, you’ll find me in maternity jeans with a little (OK, a LOT) of stretch to them and a loose button-up flannel.
Why the flannel? Well, it makes it easier to whip out the boobs to feed Connor Claire.
Sexy schtuff, I know…
- What’s the last song you sang in the shower?
Hmm… What was it?
I think — yeah, I’m pretty sure it was Hey Jude, by the Beatles, which I got stuck in my head after I played it for Connor Claire during one of her daytime feedings.
Yes, while she enjoys the fine gourmet fare known as Boobs du Mom, I play music for her. 🙂
So far we’ve covered about a quarter of the Beatles catalogue, with some Stevie Wonder thrown in there too.
- Do you have split ends?
At the moment, I do. It’s been a while since my last haircut.
- Last TV show you binge-watched?
I feel like this is turning into “A Very Special Boobs Episode of the Monday Poll,” but so much of my life right at the moment is devoted to feeding the baby, so please bear with me.
Anyway, I use a breast pump throughout the day, and while I’m pumping, I watch TV to pass the time. I’ve been binge-watching this show on Hulu called Broad City, and it’s HILARIOUS.
- What refreshes and reinvigorates you?
Um…a completely uninterrupted night of sleep?
Also, washing my face with cold water first thing in the morning, hanging out with good friends, exploring new places with El Hub, an ice cold Power C Vitamin Water and afternoons spent at the beach (ideally, one with warm water).
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. On a typical day, what kind of clothes do you wear?
2. What’s the last song you sang in the shower?
3. Do you have split ends?
4. Last TV show you binge-watched?
5. What refreshes and reinvigorates you?
Have a great week, my friend, and I’ll try to do the same.
