Lists of 5
5 things I never want my kitchen to run out of:
hot sauce, milk, peanut butter, sourdough bread and salt.
5 Article of clothes I will always own:
flip flops, cashmere sweater, thick socks, Oakland A’s T-shirt and Jack Purcell tennis shoes.
5 Activities I could never give up:
reading, photography, bathing, cooking and singing while I garden (trying to slip in an extra one there)
5 things I await seasonally:
avocados, peaches, daffodils, fall leaves and long summer days with lovely warm evenings
PART TWO: Lists of 5
5 things that never need to be in my kitchen:
grapefruit, tonic water, olives, meat and SCHARFFEN BERGER chocolates (Taste like chalk. Admit it. I know, we’re supposed to act like we’re cool and sophisticated and pretend to like it. However, I stand here today to tell you the Emperor has no clothes and this chocolate has no sugar!)
5 articles of clothes I will never own:
girdle, hot pants (Although I do still have a favorite pair from high school days; they hang on the wall as art), toe socks, underwear with padding to increase the size of your butt and anything with the yankee’s insignia unless it rags on them. Yeah, I know yankees should be capitalized, but it ain’t gonna happen. Not by me. Not while these fingers still course with Oakland A’s loving blood.
5 activities in which I will never participate:
bungee jumping, skydiving, hunting/fishing, streaking and you guessed it going to a yankee’s game (see note above, re: noncapitalization).
5 things I dread seasonally:
cold weather, shorter days, flooded basement, crazy drivers in a storm, and changing the litter box (well, I dread that no matter which season).
