1 Word Meme

Thank you, thank you, Zoe's Mom for posting this meme. I have about three long posts I want to write, but I've just been too busy with other things (like reading and writing novels and visiting ill church members) this week. This meme is perfect, because it's not only a meme but also a challenge, a great little writing exercise for me, who could easily win a "Most Verbose Blogger" award, if there were such a thing. Let's see if I can do it:

Here’s how it works: USE ONLY ONE WORD!
It’s not as easy as you might think. Copy and change the answers to suit you and pass it on. It’s really hard to use only one-word answers.

1. Where is your cell phone? charging
2. Your hair? annoying
3. Your mother? sweet
4. Your father? hilarious
5. Your favorite food? spicy
6. Your dream last night? many
7. Your favorite drink? coffee
8. Your dream/goal? published
9. What room are you in? downstairs
10. Your hobby? words
11. Your fear? pain
12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? healthy
13. Where were you last night? home
14. Something that you aren’t? tall
15. Muffins? scones
16. Wish list item? iPhone
17. Where did you grow up? South
18. Last thing you did? dinner
19. What are you wearing? shorts
20. Your TV? movies
21. Your pets? Bob's
22. Friends? love
23. Your life? game
24. Your mood? content
25. Missing someone? always
26. Vehicle? Prius
27. Something you’re not wearing? earrings
28. Your favorite store? shoe
29. Your favorite color? green
30. When was the last time you laughed? today
31. Last time you cried? today
32. One place that I go to over and over? Maine
33. One person who emails me regularly? Gary
34. Favorite place to eat? home

Well, look at that. I did it. And now, I'd better hurry up and hit "publish" before I can give into my desire to provide all kinds of explanations and qualifications.

Tagged? You!

I do admire your restraint! I'm not sure I could stick to just the one word, but this was fun to read and sort of evocative, too.

Litlove, would love to see you give it a try. (It was actually easier than I thought once I got going.)
