Random Dozen: I've Been Waiting for You to Answer

This is a meme started by Linda over at 2nd Cup of Coffee, head on over if you'd like to play along. Link up and visit the other participants.

I've Been Waiting for You to Answer:

1. How good are you at delaying gratification? It really depends on what I'm waiting for... Some things I can wait for, some things I want right now, or even yesterday!

2. Maybe a marshmallow wouldn't be too difficult a temptation for you. What food (or anything else) would be most tempting? If it is chocolate {you all know my obsession} or sex {oops, did I say that?} - there is no holding back.

3. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being saintly) how patient are you? I'd say a 5, because again as in question #1, it depends on what it is.....

4. Have you ever waited for something in life only to be disappointed upon realization of the goal/object/etc.? Of, course.... I think everyone has.

5. Are you a person who takes shortcuts? Only if the end with be the same and no one gets hurt along the way.

6. Which line is hardest to wait in? Our town Post Office... we have the slowest one in the world. The people who work there talk and talk to every single customer about NOTHING and they talk to each other, constantly. The people who go there are never ready for what they need to do, thus holding up the line even longer! AARRGGHH!!!

7. Did you wait to discover the gender of your unborn child until its birth? I waited for the first one because I wanted to be surprised. For the second one, I needed to know because we lived in a 2 bedroom apartment. Our firstborn is a boy and if we were having a girl, we were going to have to move.

8. Are you more patient with children or the elderly? I'm usually patient with both, except when the elderly are driving - and since I live in Florida, that's not really a very good thing.

9. Did you ever sneak a peek at a present? Yes I have - and I'm ashamed to say it was as an adult.

10. What is the longest you've ever waited for anything? I waited 29 years to find my soulmate - Bill.

11. Who has more patience, you or your significant other? Definitely ME!!

12. Which of the following songs about waiting is your pick for the best? (OK, you may substitute another, if you like.)
A) Anticipation by Carly Simon
B) The Waiting by Tom Petty
C) Right Here Waiting for You by Richard Marx
D) Wait for Me by Rebecca St. James
I'd have to say (C) Right Here Waiting for You by Richard Marx, I really like that song and we just saw Richard Marx at EPCOT in Disney World a couple of months ago - he was still great!
Enjoy the rest of the week..... Until next time..... Lorie

Waiting for someone is something I am terrible at. If you say you are meeting me somewhere and you are running late, I will wait no more than 15 minutes for you!!!!!

Sneaking gifts, tish, tisk....Hope it was a good one.

Ahahaha, yeah those old people in Florida. My dad is one of them and I know he is only driving about 20 miles an hour. Hope you never end up behind him.
