Sarge’s List

Sarge’s List
The Old Airforce Sarge @http://oldafsarge.blogspot.com/ posted answers to a list that was sent to him.  I hate these kinds of lists…usually, but for some reason I decided to respond.  His comment field would not take the number of charactures, so here is my response in a post of my own:

  1. That's a lot of questions. I don't do memes like that anymore, half the time I can't decide what to answer, since I have trouble choosing favourites of anything.

  2. I like these lists! Had to laugh at the butter pecan. That's my dad's favorite and my kids always thought it was bizarre because they had never seen or heard of it outside my dad,

    Your very last answer is same as mine.

  14. Good to know that you would be receptive to any and all literature with a gun held to your head! I was worried that you didn't make smart choices when I read BUTTER PECAN.

  15. These lists are always fun...you get to learn something about your imaginary friends that live in the computer. :-p

    Like...even some rap??? Seriously? See, I learned something new about you! (The only way I don't dislike rap is when it's played at the gym during the "body pump" class)
