Monday Minute Kmama Style!

Time for Ian's  Monday Minute once again, this time hosted by Kmama!



1.  Who is your "what-if" person?

I'm lucky I don't really have one.  I didn't marry the first, second or even third guy to come along and with good reason!  Waiting for Mr Right even if it did take years was worth it!!!

2.  What is your nickname?

"Tom", I earned this when I was about 4 or 5 years old from a lovely old gentleman who used to work for my parents.  And I still answer to it when I hear it!!

3.  If you could choose how you died, how would you like to die?

If I could choose, I would keel over at the computer while blogging of course!

4.  If you could have named yourself, which name would you have picked?

Well, probably not "Tom".  Hard question with answers that have changed throughout the years, when I was in grade school, I loved the name "Valerie" but now as an adult, I'm pretty happy with "Deb"

5.  Who were you named after or for what reason did your parents choose your name?

You guys are really focused on names this week.  I wasn't named after any one in particular, I think that "Debbie" was such a popular name back then it was either that or "Susan".

And that's another edition of Monday Minute!  If you liked the questions this week, copy them and link up over at Kmama's Place!!

My grandfather told my parents I would be named Rufus Roscoe after him and his dad. He was a rather controlling person. Thank goodness mom loved me enuff to say no.

Heather said...

What fun answers you had. Here are mine:

1. Who is your "what-if" person?

I don't have one either. I married a dud, then many years later found my soul mate. We are about to celebrate 7th year blissfully together in just a few days.

2. What is your nickname?

Around town, people who cannot remember my real name (Anna) call me "The Baby Store Lady" lol. It's kind of endearing I think.

3. If you could choose how you died, how would you like to die?

I probably WILL die at my computer lol, but I would rather die while in my sleep, but only after spending a wonderful evening with my grandbabies.

4. If you could have named yourself, which name would you have picked?

I actually DID name myself. My mother named me Polly Anna after the Haley Mill move that was showing the week I was born. I changed it when I was an adult (and paralegal) to Anna Claudia. Claudia was my great-grandmothers name and she was the most loving mother figure I ever knew.

5. Who were you named after or for what reason did your parents choose your name? Answered above.

That was fun. Both reading yours and sharing mine. Have a Wonderful Week!

Tom? That made me smile so big. When I was a kid mine was Bill. I went to a men's breakfast at church with my father. We are a family of all girls...but I was the son my father never had. Always liked tomboy stuff...so one Saturday he tossed me a ball cap and one of his tshirts (which was way to big) and off we went to the Men's breakfast...a father and his 'son'. One of the other men dubbed me Bill.

My mom wanted to name me Joanna, because it was a popular name at the time, I think; but my dad vetoed her choice. :)
