It’s Friday again.  Time for another MilSpouse Friday Fill-In hosted by Wife of a Sailor.  Here are this week’s questions:

 1.What food reminds you of your spouse?
Sushi!  Growing up, I was never an adventurous eater.  When my husband and I went on our first date and he suggested sushi, I agreed only because I didn’t want to look like a wimp.  I absolutely hated it.  But when he surprised me on our one month anniversary by re-creating that first date, I realized that sushi wasn’t so bad.  And one year for Valentine’s Day, he spent the day at an Asian food market learning how to make sushi and surprised me with a homemade sushi dinner.  It was only fitting that we moved to Japan.  Now, over a decade after that first date, my husband and I rarely go on a date without stopping by our favorite sushi joint. 
2.Who would you rather sit next to in a cross-country plane ride: an irritating non-stop talker, or a quiet stare-er?Definitely a quiet stare-er.  You can hide behind a book.  It’s way too hard to tune out a talker. 
3.What are your best tips on how to save money?Don’t spend it.

4.What is your favorite summer memory?
Spending entire days at our neighborhood pool.  Playing pool games, hitting the playground for volleyball and tetherball, eating popsicles at the snack bar, flirting with the lifeguards, reading the Baby-Sitters Club and Sweet Valley High series in a lounge chair, listening to Debbie Gibson and Tiffany.  Good times. 
5.Do you believe in ghosts?Nope.

  1. Oh my gosh, Babysitter's Club!! Have you heard that there's a prequel now? How you have a prequel about 12 year olds, I don't know, but I still kind of want to read it 😉 (Found you through the MilSpouse Fill-in)

  2. Are you telling yourself you don't believe in ghosts because your hubs is gone? I can't watch scary movies when he is gone….my mind can't handle it. I also can't have any of my limbs hanging over the edge of the bed because I'm afraid that there is a man that lives under my bed and will come out and lick whatever part I have sticking hanging over. I know…I'm a freak! My mind runs crazy with crazy thoughts like that.

  3. LOL! First, I, too, am a former avid reader of the BSC! Second, your answer to #3 was exactly what mine was before I rejected it as being too snarky. Love it.

  4. Count me in as one of the legion girls who grew up reading the BSC books. If you're ever feeling nostalgic, there are some hilarious blogs out there devoted to rereading the books and reviewing them from a grown-up perspective. Some of 'em had me in tears from laughing so hard.
