Ten on Tuesday (Vol. 8)
December 8, 2009
1. Cost aside, if you could go (back) to college for anything besides what you currently “do,” what would you study?
SARAH: I would go to seminary and get a master’s in Christian Education.
JIM: I wouldn’t!
2. What do you do for a living? Do you love it/hate it?
SARAH: I’m an administrative assistant. It isn’t what I want to do for the rest of my life, but I see it as a ministry to “assist” the pastors I serve. I think a lot of why I love my job is because of who I work for. I’m not sure I could do it outside of the church setting.
JIM: Officially, I’m a Constituent Services Representative for my local congressman. Basically, I try to help constituents get resolution to problems they have with the federal government. I love it! Everyday is different and I get to really help people.
3. What is your favorite Christmas ornament? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, what is your favorite holiday tradition?
SARAH: I don’t have a favorite ornament. I like everything to coordinate so whatever I get that year, I like!
JIM: I like whatever my wife likes.
4. Name something you could literally do without for the rest of your life.
SARAH: Dr. Pepper- I didn’t say I’d want to do without it, but I could.
JIM: Tobacco products.
5. If you were going to have any kind of “cosmetic procedure,” what would it be?
SARAH: I’m pretty much against cosmetic procedures. Does laser eye surgery count?
JIM: I can’t think of anything else but what my wife said.
6. Do you have any “collections”? (comic books, shoes, etc.)
SARAH: I probably own about 25 t-shirts. Other than that, the thing I have the most of are books.
JIM: I hate getting rid of t-shirts, so I guess I have a t-shirt collection. I didn’t even know my wife said the same thing.
7. At what age did you get your first cell phone?
SARAH: For Christmas my senior year of high school. I was 18.
JIM: 18. I’ve had two since then. And the first one is still my favorite.
8. What is currently in your purse (or pocket or backpack if you’re a guy)?
SARAH: tampons, checkbook, wallet, 13 pens, advil, jump drive, Burt’s Bees Chapstick, antibacterial lotion, and some mouthsore medicine.
JIM: Bible, planner, and a Jasper Fforde
9. Are you a neat-freak or a slob ? *this applies to house, office, car, etc.
SARAH: Neat freak- I mean, it’s almost unhealthy.
JIM: I’m “laid back.” A good balance for my neat freak wife.
10. What kind of parent do you think you will be? If you’re already a parent, what is your style?
SARAH: I know that I don’t want to be the germ freak parent, but I know what my tendencies are. I hope to have a “playroom” in my house where all of their stuff can go and not interfere with the rest of the house. I don’t think I’ll be too strict, but they’re going to behave! Spare the rod, spoil the child.
JIM: Laid back
