This is a fun meme that's going around. Since I've been neglectful about the Friday book closet thing, I'm going to challenge you to answer a few of the questions. First person to get an answer (to any of the questions...you don't have to guess them all...this way we can potentially have multiple winners) gets to choose a book from the closet. There are five questions scattered throughout the meme...I'll give away a book for each correct answer. Good luck!
What are your middle names?
Mine is Lora. Hamburger is named after a famous (but not necessarily one you'll immediately think of) painter, although it's spelled differently.
How long have you been together?
Take a guess.
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
We were friends for a few months, then HB graduated from college and moved away for about 4 months. When he came back to the Central Coast we started dating.
Who asked whom out?
I have no clue.
How old are each of you?
39 and 42. I will always be younger, and I'm petty enough to remind him of that.
Whose siblings do you see the most?
Neither really. We see my bro and his sis whenever we get together with our mom's for dinner or lunch or whatever.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
I can't think of one.
Did you go to the same school?
We went to the same college (and even had the same major), but we didn't meet until a few months before he graduated.
Are you from the same home town?
No, but for most of our childhoods we lived about 30 miles from each other. His high school regularly kicked my high school's ass in football.
Who is smarter?
HB will say I am, but we're smart in different ways. He's definitely got more practical skills. I'm the nerd.
Who is the most sensitive?
Neither really, although I cry over books and movies.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Lolo's, the local Mexican restaurant.
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
I don't know, you tell me. We've been there four times.
Who has the craziest exes?
Who has the worst temper?
We are both pretty mellow, although the neighbor's barking dogs will make HB go ballistic much faster than me.
Who does the cooking?
Mostly me, but if I buy the right ingredients he'll cook a meal or two. And he's perfectly happy making himself a sandwich for dinner.
Who is the neat-freak?
Me, no doubt about it.
Who is more stubborn?
About what? I'm more patient, so I'll stick with something longer...that's sort of like being stubborn.
Who hogs the bed?
Neither. We both stick to our own sides. We even have separate covers, because we don't share well.
Who wakes up earlier?
Hamburger, and you should be able to tell me why. Actually, there are two possible answers here.
Where was your first date?
If I can't remember who asked who out, do you really think I'll remember this? As friends, we went for a bike ride. As a date, it might have been dinner at This Ol' House, a local restaurant that is no more.
Who is more jealous?
Not an issue.
How long did it take to get serious?
After the friend period, not long at all.
Who eats more?
Depends on the time of day. Me in the morning and for lunch, HB at the end of the day, especially when it comes time for his post-dinner snack.
Who does the laundry?
We each do our own, because our laundry doesn't hang out together. As both a construction worker and a guy who likes to work on motorcycles, HB can get beyond grungy.
Who’s better with the computer?
Who drives when you are together?
Usually me, because we're in my car. HB has a work truck and a surf van, neither which are good around town or as long distance vehicles. Final question, what is the name of the surf van?
