Five Question Friday

1. Would you go to your high school reunion?  
I went to my ten year.  That was more than enough for me.  It seemed at the ten that people still were very clique-ish. Personally, I found that aspect alone enough to make me feel sorry for people for being so one-planed.  GROW THE EFF UP!  To not mature enough to befriend people because they weren't in your clique?  Get the EFF over yourself!  

I found, too, that just because I shared air-space with people for four years, that didn't make me feel compelled to continue to do so ... especially when having to PAY to do it.  

I don't know.  I just feel that I've grown and matured and have no need to continually relieve those "oooh, you remember that time we did such and such" moments.  I don't really care.  

Those persons that I WANT to remain in contact with -- I am.  Sure there are a few people that I would love to catch up with....but the likelihood of them even being there is slim to none.  

I didn't go to my 20.  I took my kiddo camping instead.  That was a much better use of my time.  It's valuable.  I want my boys to know that they're first.  Because... well... they are.

2. What's something that you've recently splurged on; either for yourself or someone else?  
I didn't splurge but Josh's select baseball team comes with a hefty price tag.  

3. How do you handle your child's fever?  
Generally I just give them some fever reducing liquids (ibuprofen) and let them be on their way.  Fever isn't a bad thing... it's just a sign that the body is fighting infection of some sort... generally speaking, they're nothing.  I certainly don't freak out at a fever.  I think the only time I did was when Josh had pneumonia and it spiked up to 106.  We were speeding to the hospital.  I usually buy grape or bubble gum flavors.  Kids are so lucky.  I remember all the NASTY crap I had to take when WE were kids and ill.  

4. What's the nicest thing to happen to you lately?
I went to lunch at la Madeleine and they were out of the ONLY thing I typically order.  I was stressing over looking at the menu trying to figure out ANYTHING else to order when the manager (who was working the register) said, "Try something new.  It's on me."  Geeze... now the pressure was REALLY on.  I was totally just going to order dessert (and I'd have just DIED if they were out of strawberry napoleons, too!)  I made my selection -- French Dip with a mango tea.  He rang up the order and said, "Enjoy your lunch."  He comped the ENTIRE THING!  Not only that, but when what I DID want was ready, he came to the table and offered to pack one up for me to go.  Talk about customer service!!!  They have earned my business for LIFE!  I puffy heart love la Madeleine. 

5. What is your current favorite song?
"Finally Found You" by Enrique I

I feel the exact way about high school. Those people that I wanted to hang out with, I am still friends with. Facebook takes out any of the mystery of reunions now. I hated my 10 year. We payed $50 per ticket and stayed there all of 25 minutes. The food sucked, the people weren't great either. I had way more fun at my husband's 10 year reunion (probably because I didn't go to school with any of them).

Kid's activities are always expensive. That tends to be what I splurge on too.

I feel the same way about fevers. I don't worry unless they get too high.

That manager sounds AWESOME! Did you like what you got? I usually have a mini-freak out when my usual is not available. That is great customer service and sounds like a great place.
