My redneck husband does a meme

(Diva notes are in italics)

What I was doing ten years ago:
Working at Eagle Picher, making batteries

Five years ago:
Working at Wal*Mart

One year ago:
At home alone while my wife and children were at church camp

Worked, went to a BBQ at my mother in law's house, came home and fell asleep in the recliner and slept there all night (And I got the bed all to myself!)

5 snacks I enjoy:
^ donuts
^ Snickers
^ Butterfinger
^ BBQ chips (He and Sam can obliterate an entire bag in one sitting.)
^ summer sausage, cheese and crackers

5 songs I know all the words to:
^ The Devil Went Down to Georgia by The Charlie Daniels Band (Trust me, he knows them all. Alllllllll the words...*sigh*)
^ A Country Boy Can Survive by Hank Williams Jr. (gag retch hurl)
^ Shameless by Garth Brooks (He sang it to me, rather drunkenly, on our first date. What a romantic he is.)
^ A Man of Constant Sorrow from O Brother Where Art Thou
^ Jingle Bells

5 things I would do with $100 million:
^ Buy a helicopter (HUH???)
^ Buy my wife a new van
^ Pay off our debt (Notice where paying off the debt falls. Right after a helicopter.)
^ Invest
^ Go to Disney World
^ Live happily ever after
^ Quit work

5 locations I'd like to run away to:
^ Ft. Meyers, FL
^ The Bahamas (When I asked him why he said "cuz I've never been". Well, I've never been to prison but I don't want to run away there.)
^ Hawaii
^ Canada to hunt moose (Oh good Lord, that's just what we need - a moose head to hang over the mantle)
^ Wyoming (Again, HUH?)

5 bad habits I have:
^ Chewing (Oh and a nasty habit it is)
^ Falling asleep in my recliner (Not so bad for me!)
^ Leaving my shoes in the living room (For me to trip over)
^ Leaving my red-beard whiskers all over the sink when I shave (Ach! This drives me NUTS!)
^ Not taking out the trash when my darling wife asks me to but in my defense she can fill up five bags in one day (I've been called "trashy" many times)

5 things I like doing:
^ Hunting
^ Fishing
^ Riding my motorcycle
^ 4-wheelers
^ Demolition derbies

5 things I would never wear:
^ A thong

^ Fingernail polish
^ Earrings
^ A tongue ring (And for these above, I am thankful)

5 TV shows I like:
^ Cops
^ Anything on The Outdoor Channel
^ American Chopper
^ World's Wildest Police Videos
^ Anything where someone gets arrested

5 biggest joys of the moment:
^ Laughing at my wife for making me do this stupid thing (He was laughing like a loon!)
^ Laughing at my wife when she trips or falls, which is daily (Over his SHOES!)
^ My days off
^ Taking the kids 4-wheeling

5 favorite toys:
^ Motorcycle
^ 4-wheeler
