GTKY Game — The Bump

GTKY Game

Ok , so how about we play a game? 

I’ll start by asking a question in the comments. When a person responds they must ask a new question. So on...

You can choose to answer a specific question or as many as you want.

    How did you meet your SO? 
  • szwill86szwill86 member
    *boring warning*
    He went to the college in my hometown and one of my “townie” friends introduced us when I was home doing my clinicals. Apparently he creeped on my Facebook pictures and thought I was worth meeting out in a group one weekend night. We picked him up in a Stop & Shop parking lot to go to a bar and the rest is history 😆

    do you have any pets?

    Author. Yes and no. I am doing it, but it doesn’t totally pay the bills yet, so it’s not ALL I do. I have a lot to learn about advertising in order to make it work! So I do part-time office admin stuff during the week as well.

    ETA: forgot to ask a question! 🤦‍♀️

    Childhood celeb crush was Ryan Merriman (had to look him up just now because I forgot his name). He was in a bunch of Disney Channel movies in the early 2000s.

    Yep! 2 dogs, both male Vizslas. Cooper is 2, Carson is 1. We got Cooper for my 30th birthday and Carson about a year later “for Cooper’s birthday.” The week we got Carson, hubs proposed by putting the ring on his tiny collar. 😊

    @mdfarmchick hiking is my favorite, too! 😊

    It’s kinda sad, but I want to take my kids to see the Great Barrier Reef before it all dies.  :(

    What song frequently or lately gets stuck in your head?
    mdfarmchickmanditchka24
  • @mdfarmchick and @hannahbananas11 I love hiking too!!

    @hannahbananas11 the Great Barrier Reef was one of the most amazing places I have been. Have you gone to see it yet? Hoping it can begin some regeneration and not die out 😕.

    No song gets stuck in my head frequently, but right now it’s a car sales jingle that was on the tv in the break room at work.

    I love turquoise, and pink too.

  • Guilty Pleasure: cheap romance novels 

    What is something you wouldn’t admit to your mom that you do?
  • Anything that has to do with taking care of my dad. They have been divorced over 20 years and she still asks me personal questions about his money/health/etc. situations that I think are none of her D business.

    What’s one practical life skill you think should be taught in schools but isn’t?
