Getting to Know You

By Stephanie Black

We have, over the course of our e-mail years, been the recipients of approximately 10,459 getting-to-know-you surveys. Thus inspired, my husband created his own survey, a masterful creation that plumbs the deepest depths of our psyches.

Here is his survey, somewhat altered by me to better suit our blog. Come jump up and down on our cybercouch and reveal the truths that define your soul.

Important note: Don't feel like you have to answer every question. Just choose the ones you like and ignore the rest. For instance, you could choose your favorite three or five or ten or fifteen. Or if you're feeling adventurous, by all means, tackle them all!

How about if I just skip over the boring parts?

7. Rob Wells
11. The case of the musical Senator's missing milk.
14. Probably white. I personally would want chocolate, but they'll probably go for a traditional white. Odds? 95%, even if it is only his wife in jest.
25. A book.
39. Hermounts. I can see a big strong warrior named Hermounts, named by his father in the hopes that he will grow up to be as big and steadfast as a mountain (Hermounts was a mountain, right?) but his mother keeps slipping up and calling him Hermie. Or Herrie.

I really shouldn't sign my name to something that later turns out to contain a mistake ...

Hermounts is not a mountain, but a wilderness, full of wild and ravaging beasts. I still like the name, though, and think it would fit a wild, ravaging Lamanite quite nicely.
