Jen Chandler said...

These are some of the best answers I've come across in this blogfest. Now, I'm curious...a carrot factory worker. Hmm...

Cheers!
Jen

Ahaha! Great answers!

Laura Campbell said...

To be let into Heaven despite everything one has done? Perfect. Hilarious answers. I'm most intrigued by the vampire baby.

LOL, God's going to say something like that to me, too! And what's up with baby carrots? Seriously, they're just normal-sized carrots that have been whittled down. And yet people pay more for them. Dupped!

Thanks so much for playing along!!

I've never seen any openings advertised for operative in the carrot factories. I love words and baby burbles too :)

JM Leotti said...

Really fun. Love your answers, especially the vampire infant and carrot factory. Interesting... About baby carrots...those wee ones are tasty, but we prefer "man carrots" as my husband likes to refer to them... Tangent, I'm sorry...

J.L. Campbell said...

Hate the alarm clocks racket too! What does one do in a carrot factory? Is there really, really such a place? :D

Kari Marie said...

I love that you like to pretend you don't curse and I second your hatred of the alarm clock.

Kristin Rae said...

COOKIE!! You rode an ice cream bike?? I think this demands a longer post!

mzmackay said...

I miss the sound of baby burbles. Now, all I hear, is "Mommy... this. Mommy...that."

DL Hammons said...

I pretend that jelly donuts don't make me fat either. :)

Corinne O'Flynn said...

ice cream bike driver = awesome. I too am intrigued by the turn off mystery and the vampire baby. ;)

Great list!

Carrot factory worker? Wow. Only in Canada are carrots grown in factories; here in the U.S. they're brought by stork.

Bryan Russell (Ink) said...

There was some sort of labour dispute with the storks, so they went industrial.

Matthew Rush said...

Seems neither of us like waking up, my friend.

I shall retire some day, and on that day the clock shall meet its DOOM.

Heather M. Gardner said...

Carrot factory? Is that where the bunnies work?
Thanks for sharing your answers.

Good thing you had one of my get out of hell free cards, here take an extra....you never know.

Paul Joseph said...

I have to agree; alarm clocks are most definitely the worst sound ever. Good post - enjoyed learning more about you. And thanks for keeping me entertained during a numbing Saturday at work.

Carrot factory? Just carrots? What about peas and potatoes? [g]
Mmm, cookies...
