Friday Fiver

  1. When is the last time you rode the bus? I took the 9:04 to work this morning.
  2. Describe the last time you stood up for a cause: I’m not sure about standing up for a cause… I know that at my last church we talked a lot about causes and social issues and I taught the kids about several, so if that counts, then sometime last school year. Also, in Sunday School (which I didn’t teach) I occasionally had the opportunity to voice my opinion on a subject where I was clearly on the exact opposite side as everyone else. I tried not to do that too often though, just because it wasn’t really helpful overall.
  3. Have you visited Alabama? I’ve driven through. I was scared. No, wait, that was Georgia. Waffle Houses in Georgia at 6 am are not the place to be.
  4. Have you ever attended a rally? Nope. I did See You At The Pole once in high school, but other than that I don’t really do that large-group-in-public-speaking-out kind of thing.
  5. Have you ever been arrested? No, but I have been threatened. That time and I went to Boston and I got pulled over for speeding in Wisconsin on the way back. It had been such an ill-fated trip anyways, since I’d accidentally left my debit card at home. So when I had to pay right then and there for my ticket or go to jail, it was seriously a problem. Conveniently, I had my # memorized and the officer accepted that. I was all, “I can’t be arrested – I have to go work at church tomorrow!”
