1. I also do not like cucumbers one of the very very few foods I don't like :)
6. I'm guessing band. And for extra credit I'll go ahead and guess you played the clarinet. (I'm cool enough to have lettered in band. Trumpet!)
9. I have 3 uncles named Don. One's last name is Johnson. So, you know, I've been to Don Johnson's house. :)

Sugar on your mac and cheese? I've never heard of that, but sounds good to me! I like mac and cheese and I like sugar!
Um....I guess choir, tennis, and softball?

2. Sugar on mac and cheese? That is seriously twisted, my friend. But I love you.

6. Um, I'm going to guess track and field. Specifically, discus. Or maybe javelin. If it was javelin, you have excellent raw material for turning yourself into a superhero. You could call yourself the Pink Javelin and stop evildoers from a thousand yards away with your deadly accuracy.

9. I definitely want to hear this story!

ONLY two fries at a time?!?!? :)

Alyson, I wish I could play the clarinet, or any instrument for that matter. But, alas, I cannot.

April, I think the sugar on mac and cheese must be a family thing. I've never seen anyone else do it. And only try sugar on boxed mac and cheese, not the yummy homemade kind. And I did letter in choir, but never once picked up a tennis racket or softball in high school. I'll get your prize in the mail!

Katrina, I would only run if I were being chased, so track and field is out. But your discus/javelin comment totally made me laugh. I'll bring my card to show you. I still have it.

Kathy, Did you know I lettered in choir or is it just because of my angelic voice? :) And you get a prize, too, because I'm pretty sure you did know that there was no way I lettered in a sport!

Idaho Dad, I eat the whole box of fries, just two at a time over and over again. :)

Marmie, I try cucumber every summer hoping that I will like it. I still don't. But I'm sure I would enjoy cucumber sandwiches with you! :)
