Sunday Stealing: The Racquet Questions
01 What is the worst nickname that anyone has ever called you? The only nickname I've ever had was "Rice", and that was because I wore a sweatshirt from Rice University, where I was a student.
02 Have you got a favorite flower? Not really - I like them all.
03 Do you add a sauce, ketchup or other artificial flavorings to your food? Mostly pepper is the only thing I use, occasionally a little salt.
04 Describe yourself using only words that begin with the letter 'T'. The only thing I can think of is "tall" - but I've shrunk so much I'm not really tall any more. Well, then there's "talkative".
05 What is/was your lover's pet name for you? I don't think he ever had one.

08 What is/was your grandfathers’ names? Jack Rogers Russell and Charles Allen Wheeler.

19 What was your favorite toy as a child, and whatever happened to it? I don't remember.
