The memes are going around again. This time it is the A-B-C meme where there is a required response for each letter of the alphabet. I have just been tagged by a. maria and have taken on this new challenge of awakening my brain on a Monday morning. Pay special attention to the letter “T”. If your name is listed there, you have now been offically taged by me. Enjoy.
A-Available or Single — Maybe I am missing something with this question; aren’t these both the same? The answer is “neither.” I am married and, therefore, unavailable and certainly NOT single
B-Best Friend — Tom
C-Cake or Pie — This is a tough question. Today, my answer is pie (apple pie).
D-Drink of choice — Double latte with non-fat milk.

N-Number of siblings — I have two sisters and one brother. I am the younger of the two “middle” children, and was the “baby” until I turned 5 1/2 years old.

T-Tag three people — Cindy, YaYa, Wes, and 21st Century Mom (even though she, and Wes, may be hit by a. maria’s global tag). Please know that I CAN count, but since I will untimately be helping YaYa to play this game, I have listed 3 other names besides his.

I had several x-rays to my left hand and wrist after I fell while running (December 2005). Left ankle after pain following my first marathon did not resolve (June 2002). Back x-rays, CT scan, and myelogram done when I was in 7th grade and lost feeling from my waist down.
