The other day while catching up on reading other blogs, I came across an interesting post on Adventures of a London Kiwi. She answered 13 “When It’s Over” questions and I thought it was a really fun and interesting idea. I believe she found the questions on Life as Louise and she found the questions originally on KezzieAG. I think I have all the linking right but if not, let me know and I’ll fix/edit any mistakes! It’s been a bit of a struggle to come up with writing ideas and I’m sure other Bloggers are in the same boat. Maybe this will be a fun writing exercise and it never hurts to day dream about when we’re able to go out and about in the world again.
1. Restaurant you would go out to:
I’ve been trying to do my part by shopping local and supporting some of my favorite restaurants. But there’s still something nice about sitting down at your favorite place for a proper meal. I think the one thing I miss the most right now is Brunch! I’d probably either go to Iron Rooster, Miss Shirley’s, or Jimmy’s Famous Seafood. They all offer something different but all of it is A+.
2. Friend you would meet up with first:
This is a hard one, I have a lot of friends that live out of town or in another country. I’d probably try and get together with my local squad for a Happy Hour. We’ve been doing some over Zoom but it’s just not the same! I have friends I do regular lunches with too that I miss. Honestly it’s hard to pick just one friend!
3. Place you would go:
THE BEACH. I’ll hop in my car and make that 3 hour drive. I had plans to go to the beach this summer and obviously they’ve been cancelled. I miss the sun, sand, and drinks.
4. Shop you would go to:
Target. Sure, I can still go there with my mask but there’s no need to do and that just adds to an already crappy situation.
5. Food item you would buy/eat:
There really isn’t too much I haven’t been able to eat during all this. If I had to pick something though it would be wings. I’ve been craving wings and it’s just not the same eating them at home instead of at the bar.
6. Cake you would eat:
I’d go to St. Louis and get an Ooey Gooey butter cake. It’s amazing and if you’ve never tried it you’re really missing out.
7. Show you would/will go to see:
I don’t really go to any shows or theater but I’d probably just go see anything that was playing at the movies. I’m sure I could find something even if it meant going to one of the theaters that shows classic films around here.
8. Concert you will go to watch:
I have tickets to see The Foo Fighters in July. I doubt that’s going to happen so I’d try and find a way to see them or The Struts.
9. Relative you will hug first:
My nephews! They’re 9 and 5. I just miss hanging out with them and goofing around.
10. Holiday you would go on:
I’d probably just wait until next year! I have a wedding in the UK to attend in April. I’d probably just make that my trip unless I can find a really good deal before then. I might do a small day trip or something but we’ll see. I have friends in Chicago and Rochester I could easily go visit.
11. Other activity you would take part in:
I’d go see a sporting event! I miss sports. My favorite part about Summer is sitting outside in the sunshine and watching a baseball game. A nice cold beer and a perfect stadium hot dog. I’d try and get out into nature more too and visit some local parks.
12. Thing you would do at work:
My work life hasn’t changed. I still go into the office every day except there’s only 4-10 of us here (between two floors) instead of 200-250. It’s very quiet and a little odd but I’m use to it now. It’s going to be weird once everyone starts coming back to work. I’m not sure I’m going to like all the noise!
13. Item you would buy:
Hmm, maybe just some new clothes. I don’t like buying clothes online because of fit issues. I’ve tried ordering a dress for the wedding I mentioned before and I’ve had to send them all back. So I’d probably head out for a dress!
If you end up writing your own post, let me know! I’d love to read some more answers.
