The A to Z of the Boy and Me

© shoutingforha
A friend sent me this meme ages ago and I promptly lost it somewhere in my inbox.  When I randomly across it the other day, I thought I would give it a go.  The boy decided to play along too.

A. Age:  (the boy) 11, (me) 38, at least for another month...
B. Bed size: (the boy) A full sized bed, a.k.a. The Lodge. (me) We sleep on a regular old queen, although the hubby thinks we need to up-size to a king.
C. Car: (the boy) Maserati, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Bugatti, Lamborghini... You can tell I like cars. (me) I couldn't possibly care less about cars. Right now I drive a GMC Suburban, a.k.a. The White Whale.
D. Dogs: (the boy) My dog, Brick, is BOSS. (me) I had an overgrown Sheltie as a child and then six years ago we got Brick, the king of the mutts.
E. Essential start to your day:  (the boy) I never want to get out of bed. I need an extra 30 minutes of sleep. (me) I would say time, but given that I rarely get a leisurely start to the morning, a big cup of coffee will do.
F. Favorite color: (the boy) red, (me) green
G. Gold or Silver: (the boy) I would like some golden bricks. (me) Silver, although my antique wedding ring is gold.
H. Height: (the boy) 5 ft. 3 in. (me) 5 ft. 1 3/4 in.  The stinker has passed me by over an inch.
I. Instruments you play:  (the boy) I'm the god of rock and a really good drummer. (me) I can play the piano and am the only member of my musical family that can read music.
J. Job title: (the boy) The BOSS. (me) Wife, mother and habitual volunteer.
K. Kids: (the boy) I guess. (me) Just one.  But with such an amazing boy, who needs more?
L. Live:  (the boy) In my house. (me) A quaint Civil War era town just south of Nashville.
M. Mother’s name: (the boy) Amy, (me) Kathy
N. Nicknames: (the boy) Mr. Kool Kat, The BOSS, monster, booger and gigantor. (me) Aunt Mimi, Ames, Babe
O. Overnight hospital stays: (the boy) When I was born and then when I got sick ten days later. (me) Four nights when the boy was born.  The first two were because of the massive kidney stone I passed, the second two were after his birth.
P. Pet peeves: (the boy) Obnoxious children at school. (me) Rude people, drivers who can't merge lanes and that park over the line in parking spaces.  I need a full space to park the land yacht. 
Q. Quote from a movie: (the boy) "Fool of a Took!" ~ Gandalf, Lord of the Rings, Return of the King (me) "Certainty of death. Small chance of success.  What are we waiting for?" ~ Gimli, Lord of the Rings, Return of the King. Some days I feel like it could be my personal motto.  Although if you asked the boy he would probably say my favorite quote is, "You'll shoot your eye out!" (A Christmas Story).
R. Right or left handed: (the boy) I'm a lefty. (me) I'm a righty.
S. Siblings: (the boy) No. Does Brick count? (me) A fraternal twin sister (we don't look alike) and identical twin half-brothers (they do).
U. Underwear: (the boy) I go commando. Just kidding. I wear boxer briefs. (me) Yes, I wear them and it drives me nuts that they are so darn expensive.
V. Vegetable you hate: (the boy) Lettuce. I hate salad. (me) Beets.  I think they taste like dirt.
W. What makes you run late: (the boy) Sleeping in too late. (me) I always try to be on time, but when I'm running late it's usually the boy's fault.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: (the boy) At the dentist, when I severed my tendon in my finger with a pocket knife, and when I wrecked my bike and had a rock embedded in my arm. (me) Dental, a broken toe from trying to punt furniture, a broken pinky finger courtesy of the dog, and a dye test/x-ray of my fallopian tubes after years of trying to get pregnant a second time.
Y. Yummy food that you make: (the boy) I like bacon. (me) Isn't everything I make wonderful and delicious?
Z. Zoo animal: (the boy) Warthogs. Weird isn't it? (me) I have a thing for penguins.
