Posted on July 29th, 2010 by Jean

I was nervous to sit down with World Renowned Reporter, *Megan.
 

 
She looked like she meant business when she sat down with her notepad in hand.
 
I only hoped I’d be up for the questions she would pose.
 
MEGAN: If you could travel to one place in the world and you had to leave today, where would you be headed and why?
 
ME: Oh my gosh, I have to leave right now? I’m not even packed! I guess I’d better fly to Los Angeles and hope my sister can pick me up. I might be able to fit into some of her clothes. Oh heck, I’ve got charge cards. Sure, I’m ready. Where’s my ride?
 
MEGAN:No, you insolant boob. It was merely a hypothetical question. Care to try again?
 
ME: Oh, ok. Anywhere in the world….
 
MEGAN: Tick tock, Jean. Step it up.
 
ME: You know what? I’m still gonna say my sister’s house. She just recently moved, and I haven’t even seen the place. So, yes, I think I’ll fly into Los Angeles.
 
MEGAN: Fine. Good. Los Angeles. Next question: What are your talents, and what are some of the areas in which you wish you had talent but do not?
 
ME: I think I’m talented with PhotoShop. I can also google really quickly to get answers to my husband’s obscure questions. I pretty successfully juggle being a Mom, a wife, and a business owner. I wish I could ride a horse. Naw, I don’t really wish that! Ah ha ha ha ha ha!!! My husband would wish that for me! I wish my talent was getting in shape and staying there. Does that qualify?
 
MEGAN: Sure, that qualifies. I’m sure you speak for many who wish they had the talent of … ahem… health. ::: rolls eyes ::: Next question: What do you love the most about your life and why?
 
ME: I love the flexibility of my work schedule!! Love, love, love it! Seriously, I work about 2 weeks out of the month. I’m a graphic designer, and create (or change) ads one week. The next week I put on my publisher hat, and get our magazines ready to print. So, during my off-time, I get to spoil my children with lots of attention! Plus, we work out of our house, so we, Tom & the kids and I, have a lot of quality time together.
 
MEGAN: Finally, I think you’re letting us see the real you! Question number 4: What are you most afraid of?
 
ME: I hope this doesn’t sound silly, but my biggest fear is home invasion. I check all the doors each night, and make sure the gates are closed. I check on my daughters in their beds. I just want us all to be safe, in our home. It’s a scary world out there, and a shame these thoughts have to enter my head.
 
MEGAN: Amen. Ok, let’s end on a lighter note. My final question is, what is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
 
ME: Just one? I’ve got a few. Hard to narrow ’em down. Let’s see… Well, for starters, I was in high school, but away on a debate tournament. There were a whole bunch of us sitting around, laughing and joking. Well, one guy was SO FUNNY, I literally lost control of my bladder! I had to run to the bathroom and freshen up as best I could. Another time, I was on a date. The guy and I had decided to snuggle in the back of his car. I must have been tired, and fell asleep. Know what woke me up? The sound of my own fart!
 
MEGAN: I’m afraid that’s all we have time for, Jean. Thank you.
 
If you’d like to be interviewed, please say Interview Me in the comments. I will send you five questions specific to you.

 
*Megan is a lovely friend who no longer blogs. This post was originally published February 8, 2008 on MySpace.

  2. Interview me:)

    LOL on the bladder & thats only because I have the same problem & always have. Even before having two 9 pound babies! One time we were attending a homecoming for our cousin who was fighting in Iraq & they had a huge party for him. The Mayor spoke(he was one of the first ones to deploy) there were police officers there, firemen & all kinds of people. They had one of those bounce houses & my younger cousin & I were having a blast jumping in there( a small amount of alcohol was involved, but surely not the cause) well, I didnt know just how bad my bladder was! I tried to fix it with my cousins blow-dryer, but I was so sure that people could still tell. They are all way bigger than me, so borrowing clothes wasn’t an option:(
    Yeah, Ive had many laughing fits, too!
    Ill come ride the horses with you!!!

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Lisalou, I WILL interview you!
    Isn’t it awful to have a weak bladder? Ugh! Wait, that is NOT one of my questions. LOL!
    1) What is your favorite vacation destination?
    2) Where would you like to travel that you haven’t already visited?
    3) What is your wish for your grandchildren?
    4) Have you had a paranormal experience?
    5) How did you meet your hubby?

  3. HA HA HA HA! That fart cracked me up!!!

    🙂

    Hilarious!

    I have really good embarrassing story today. Somehow I wore two COMPLETELY different shoes to work. One black, one silver. I didn’t realize when I shoved my feet in the shoes under the desk, that I was getting two different ones. I finally noticed walking into our 9 story office building. The heels were different sizes. There were two people on the elevator ride. I was mortified. The office got a big kick out of it!

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    LOL, Angelia! Do you always keep shoes under your desk? OMgosh, glad everyone got a laugh.

    That fart was mortifying.

    Sherri Reply:

    Angelia,

    I’ve done that before too. I wore two different colored boots to work one day. One black and one brown. They were very similar and I didn’t notice until half the day was over. No one told me, but I don’t think they noticed until I pointed it out. Just like your office, my office coworkers got a hoot outta the different boots!

  4. INTERVIEW ME! lol! Can’t wait to see what you come up with! ^^

    How embarassing on the bladder! I’m so lucky that I almost never have to pee. O.O

    [Reply]

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Hi A.M.! Thanks for stopping by. I wish I never had to pee.
    Ok, here are your 5 questions! Can’t wait to learn more about you.
    1) Who is your favorite author?
    2) Your “Writers = Cannibals” post is hilarious. What is the worst injury you have sustained?
    3) Who is the illustrator for your book jacket covers and your blog header?
    4) Where have you been hiding?
    5) You mentioned you get paid to play with puppies. Do you have any pets?

  5. Interview me. :O)

    I LOVED this! I don’t remember reading this one over @MS, which means my stalking skills are not what I thought. ;O)

    You are amazingly talented with PhotoShop! So much so that at least twice a month, I take look through the photos I’ve recently taken and wonder what it would take to convince you to “fix” them. A group shot of the grands looking all sorts of crazy directions paired with individual shots of them each looking adorable (if I do say so myself) could become a really great group shot. Even more appealing is the idea that you could take a real photo of me and shave off 40 pounds, a’la Hollywood style. Now THAT would be magical.

    If you ever start a photo-fixing side business, I’ll be a regular customer!

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Oh, Beth, you’re such a sweetie. This will be fun!
    Haha – if you want photos fixed, you just ask.

    1) What is the best part about being a grandparent?
    2) You and your hubby met when you were toddlers. How did your parents feel about your young relationship?
    3) How does your date night today differ from your date nights 20 years ago?
    4) If you could magically erase all of the calories from one meal, what would that meal be?
    5) What is the most fun you can have with your clothes on?

    [Reply]

    Beth Reply:

    Great questions! I’ll get on ’em. :O)

    [Reply]

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Can’t wait to see your answers, Beth!

  6. Ahahahahahaha Jean, I swear I was just thinking about that farting in your sleep thing that I admitted to you before… same thing happened to me last night. I woke up to the sound of it…lol It only happens when my b/f sleeps over too! Never when I’m alone. I tried to blame it on him, but he wasn’t having it. Thank god it was odorless….lmao!

    [Reply]

    Sherri Reply:

    lol…can I delete all that? Hey, I got so off the track that I forgot to tell you how much I enjoyed this piece. I never read this blog either and like Beth I feel my stalking skills are sliding…lol

    You looked great and and soooooo professional in your photo too!

    [Reply]

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Thanks Sherri. And, no, you cannot delete all that! 🙂

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Wait, Sherri. You only fart yourself awake when your bf sleeps over? Maybe you sleep through your farts when he’s gone. Bwahahahahaha!

    2) What is one thing on your bucket list?
    3) Given the choice, would you rather have one new pair of designer shoes or 10 new stylish, no-name shoes?

    Thank you, Richard.
    Your web show is going to be a HIT, HIT, HIT!!

    [Reply]

  9. I just love you Jean. You are so brutally honest and you have such wonderful way with words. I used to be the same way when my kids were little. I’d check and recheck the doors and check and recheck on them in their beds at night. I loved watching them sleep and hearing them breathe.

    PS……the fart totally made me snort!!!!! Oh god Jean!!

    [Reply]

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    I love you too, Joy. You always pick me up and make me think.
    So thrilled to elicit a snort from you, girl!

  10. I can see I’m not alone on the whole fart appreciation comment. Very funny interview. The photo up top was very cute and perfesional looking. I think it’s sweet that you would want to travel to your sister house given the choice.

    [Reply]

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Thank you, Starla!
    I finally visited my sister last Christmas, and had a wonderful time! Memories I’ll never forget.
    The pic was originally Condoleezza Rice being interviewed by Katie Couric. LOL!

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Thank you, Gig Girl!
    Your blog moved me! I’ll be popping in on you often too.

    [Reply]

  12. Haha! You are a character … I love it! (And that Richard Simmons comment? Priceless.)

    I’d tell you to interview me, but I’m soo skeered.

    Next year. Next year, I will be confident enough to accept interviews. Yes. That’s it.

    [Reply]

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Thank you, Liz!
    Megan really raked me over the coals. LOL!

    [Reply]

  15. Hi Valrie! Thank you for stopping by.
    I must admit, Megan gave me five questions to answer, but I took liberties with how they were presented here.

    Oh, you’re welcome, Luisa! Thank YOU! So glad to bring a smile to you for a change. 🙂 Lord knows, I owe you one.

  18. This is a funny interview. I had a similar embarrassing experience, but I wasn’t sleeping. It was one of those SBD’s. Kwim?

    I am afraid of a home invasion, too. The husby works at night and we are here alone. I even worry about a home invasion when he is here because he is such a sound sleeper, with the snoring and all. 😉

    [Reply]

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Tammy, SBD?! Oh no! ROFL!! Too funny.

    I worry that I will have to act before hubby does. He’s also a sound sleeper.
