“The fact is, Chicago could not exist without its landmark ordinance,” said Jonathan Fine, the executive director of Preservation Chicago, a nonprofit group. “It’s the line that holds us back from the Neanderthals.”
1. The last flight of stairs you walked up/down - were the carpeted?
Student Union at MSU Bozeman. I love these stairs. They're marble and a track has been worn down the middle by countless feet of countless young people on their way to higher education (or in a hurry to get back to the beer party at the dorm.)
2. Green or purple grapes?
3. Do you like Peeps?
I prefer chocolate.
4. The smell of Vicks - like it?
Funny you should ask. We had a medical call last night and the patient started barfing almost as soon as we came in sight. I don't take that personally. After the ambulance carried the patient away, we were standing in the yard, debriefing the call and one said, I need to get a little jar of that smelly stuff. I said, I have some, feel free next time. In fact, the Vicks jar fell out of my jump kit when I was searching for a barf bag. Our third partner said he'd never heard about that. Yep, I says. Mentholatum works. Vicks is better.
So, yeah, I like the smell of Vicks, because sometimes it is better than the alternative.
5. Do you put decorative cling-ons on your windows for different holidays? No.
6. Finish the sentence - I spent too much money on ________ .
Just when I was getting a good start on worrying about kiddo moving to Europe, where there's a terrorist behind every tree and other perils I have yet to imagine, a building blows up in the town where she lives now. Down the street from her house. Gas leak. Five people missing at first report. One person confirmed dead.
Poor mother's nerves. I'm going to end up looking like that cat.
