1. If you knew your best friend’s spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?
Yes, I think I would, well actually I’d force the spouse to do it. I’d gather the evidence in case the cheater tried to deny it. Then I’d make sure they either told their spouse or I would. I think. This is such a difficult thing to know about and get involved in. It has happened to people I know and dearly love, and I not only knew it, I chose to keep quiet. I can never condone cheating, but I also understood why it was happening, that needs far more than just the physical were not being met. I watched someone get beat down inside and now that the marriage is over, the true colors of that spouse are shining through. They are dark, unkind, mean and bitter, completely hateful. Oh I know they are in some ways responding to the circumstances, but then both parties are responsible for the break down over time, and this spouse being cheated on, yeah those true colors were there and not at all attractive. I fully take 50% of the responsibility for the time I found the former prince looking on Adult Friend Finder for booty calls, that nearly wrecked the marriage then. And I am half responsible for the fact that the marriage finally ended.
Would I have wanted someone to tell me? Yep. And 90% of the time, I will rat you out if I catch you cheating on your spouse and he or she is my friend.
2. Soda in a can or a bottle?
In this part of the country, it is called POP. Okay and can is preferred over a bottle, but ultimately I want fountain style. I think that is when it tastes the best and is the most refreshing.
3. What do you wash first, hair or body?
My face is first, then hair, then body. I am very OCD about this. Face first so if any of the facial cleanser gets in my hair it will be washed away. Hair next because it is the top, and the water, soap and dirt runs DOWN. Then the body last. I even wash from the top to the toes in that order. I cannot deviate from that or it throws my entire day off. I’m a freak, I know. It’s okay.
4. What advice would you give to any new mama?
Baby comes first, then your spouse, then the rest of your cleaning, etc. Take care of the baby, that bonding time is precious. And when baby sleeps, you sleep so you stay well rested. Patience is required when they are little and sleep deprivation is only going to make it harder to care for that little angel. Do not neglect your spouse and their needs because the baby is here, put aside everything else and focus on them. No one will come in and steal your dirty clothes or dishes (though if only there were fairies to come in and wash them!). At the end of the day if it didn’t get accomplished then it really wasn’t that important. In the big picture, 5 years down the road when that little boy or girl goes off to school, they won’t remember that you didn’t always have the house completely cleaned up. Not saying let it all go to complete mess, but spic and span isn’t necessary either.
5. What is your best hangover remedy?
Sadly, being 48, I have some extensive research into this area. The best remedy is don’t get drunk. Oh the times I’d lay there in agony thinking “never again”. However, on those occasions when too much alcohol the night before results in the potential for a bad morning, one thing I have found helps is before going to bed, load up on some junk carbs. Around these parts hitting Skyline for coneys or White Castle for some sliders helps a bunch. And water! In fact, when I did drink too much, the former prince would put me to bed with a 16 ounce bottle of water that had a table spoon of sugar mixed in and 2 aspirin. 90% of the time I woke up feeling great. If you fail to use preventative maintenance techniques the night before, my son swears by loading up on the junkie carbs the next morning. Like a nice pizza or something. Assuming you can get it to stay down.
Again, best remedy is NOT to need one!
