It's time to link up with Ashley and Neely for Sunday Social. Hope you're having a lovely weekend so far!
Before we get to this week's questions and answers, I quickly just want to say that I would absolutely love it if you'd consider submitting a question for my "Ask Kate" Series - the questions can be as simple or as complex as you like. If you don't have one, maybe you know someone who does? It would be much appreciated!
Now... let's get Social!
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
I miss school and participating in athletics. I loved taking the hard classes that most shied away from just to prove that I could do it. I have always had a competitive bone, so I loved playing sports and being part of a team.
2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
It was Rose - and only my Father called me by the name. I always hated it too, until finally one day he confessed as to why he called me that. He said he always thought I was as sweet and pretty as a rose. Boy, did I feel rotten after that.
3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
I loved to swing and hang upside down on the monkey bars. Oh, and play foursquare - that was elementary school. And then in grade school, it was tetherball. I always wanted to be the girl who could beat the guys.
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I'm pretty sure it fluctuated between a Teacher and a Doctor. And I'm neither today, I'm an Accountant.
5. Did you participate in any school activities?
I played lots of different sports - volleyball, basketball, softball, and track. And I loved to watch the Boys Football and Basketball games. I'm pretty sure I attended most dances, and in my younger days, got second or third place in a spelling bee.
6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
My Mom loves to tell the story of how, when I was five years old, I called McDonald's and asked them if they were hiring - I suppose I thought I needed a job.
Happy Sunday to You!
As always, thanks for reading.
