2. ___are my favorite candy
3. If I could have one magical power it would be______
4. If I could go back to school it would be to become a _________

My Answers:

1. When I was little I was called Babs.  Not that often, though.  I also had a man in one of the churches my daddy served who always called me Smiley—-the last time I saw him was a few years ago and he still called me that!
2. Peanut M & M’s are my favorite candy
3. If I could have one magical power it would be the cloak of invisibility!  How awesome would that be?
4. If I could go back to school it would be to become a professional counselor.

Join in the fun and hop over to Hilary’s to sign up!!!  And don’t forget—Comments for a Cause results on October 1st plus the announcement of October’s cause!!!



  1. I was Garfield. I have really large eyes. Can I go back to school to become a beach bum?

  2. Love the cloak of invisibility idea…. And I want to be a beach bum like TBM thought of!

  3. sometimes I already feel invisible!

  4. What a wonderful compliment to be called Smiley.

  5. I think I could be happy with Smiley. I don’t think I could be trusted with the cloak of invisibility…..there are just too many fabulous shoe stores I could sneak into!

  6. I think Smiley suits you just perfectly!!! 🙂 Have a great weekend.

  7. Yes, Smiley fits you well. I’m with you on the M&Ms; the cloak of invisibility–I never would have thought of that. Good choice! I guess you’ll have to counsel us en masse through your blog until then. 🙂

  8. I was called 4 Eyes & Buck Tooth when I was a kid because I wore glasses & needed my teeth straightened badly. My favorite candy is Riesen (caramel covered in dark chocolate) or chocolate covered ju jubes. I would like to be able to teleport. I would have to be careful not to go near any major centres or they might think I was attacking. But I would sure love to be able to teleport to a sugar sand beach in the Caribbean in the middle of a snow storm!

    • Somehow I missed a whole gob of comments—this one included!!! So sorry! I had horrible buck teeth also AND glasses AND had a chipped front tooth and I was really self conscious but I guess I don’t really remember kids making fun of me for those things to my face which is a good thing, indeed. It hurts!!!!! And I like Riesens too….yummmmmm.

  9. “Babs” is the nickname we gave our GPS system. She has a british accent and we laugh every time she says “turn left here”.

  10. Helen Brown says:

    Who called you Babs? I never heard you called that. Am I losing me memory or were you given that name at school?

  11. Goodness, love that first one. When I was little I was called “Guck.” My younger siblings couldn’t say “Kathy.” It stuck. Sometimes my brother still calls me that. Cracks me up.

  12. Thanks! Now, it’s Sunday morning and I am having to get dressed and head out to the car so that I can drive and find some peanut M&M’s!…… I love those things but have not had them in years! 🙂

    • Sorry—it could be worse. You could be having to go out for something less desirable like brussels sprouts or rutabaga…

      • Rutabaga or turnip is my favorite veg! I have a great recipe with apples, brown sugar & cinnamon. My ex-brother-in-law who hated vegetables used to take seconds – it’s so good!

        • Seriously??? I don’t think I have ever even had rutabagas to be honest….and I do love brussels sprouts!!! That recipe sounds intriguing!!!!

          • It is a very good recipe, you put it together in a casserole too, so when you are making a big dinner you don’t have to worry about it. You can make ahead & put it in the oven till dinner time.

  13. Sorry, 2 responses because I hit the post button at the wrong time. I don’t like brussel sprouts, so if you have a good recipe, I’d like to try it.

    • I most always roast them and I have a spicy chili sauce that I coat them with after they are roasted–kind of a sweet spicy combo and it is yummy!!!

  14. I like that candy too, but my favorite would be chocolate covered cherries.
    For my super power, I’d choose to be able to be two places at once.

I love your comments--each one makes me smile and makes a difference for Comments for a Cause! Thanks!
