ABC, easy as.... MEME

I've been a bit out of touch in Iowa over the weekend for a super last minute trip to visit an ill family member. I got to see a number of family members which was incredible.  I'll do a fun weekend summary (which included an embarrassingly low amount of running) shortly.

In the meantime, I finally put together one of the ABCs that you've seen around the interwebs.  There are two things I like about these.  First, it is all about my favorite subject.  Second, it doesn't make me tag a bunch of people, something that usually makes me more stressed than a 4 year old trying to pick out a candy bar.


A~Age: 29. I turn the big 3-0 in July and am planning a bender to end all benders to open a 7 year 'flight' of wine that I have be saving. 2001-2007. Tastes like vinegar - mixed with hangover.

B~ Bed Size: King. My wife's half is the middle half. My half is split up amongst the rest of the bed on either side.

C~Chore you hate: Any chore that my wife invents while I am trying to watch Football on TV. "Hey Adam...I was thinking, we haven't dusted under the couches in a while, we need to do that NOW"

D~Dogs: Nope. My wife is pretty allergic.

E~Essential Start your Day Item: Roll over and try to get to second base with my wife Go for a run, eat some cereal with a cartoon character on the box, drink some coffee.

F~Favorite Color: Red. Bright red. Ferrari Red.

G~Gold or Silver:......Wait, is this list supposed to be for girls?

H~Height: Depends on who is asking. The truth is 5'9"

I~Instruments you play: Drums including trap set in jazz band and quads in marching band. I LOVED it.

J~Job Title: Manager at a Management Consulting company. How is that for boring/general/vague? For the last 8 years, I've traveled 4 days a week almost nonstopped.

K~Kids: I have a 3 month old who is the reason for living.

L~Live: Arizona. I miss winter, but 80 degrees with 9% humidity in March is pretty hard to pass up.

M~Mom’s Name: Cheryl.

N~Nicknames: I hate nicknames.

O~Overnight Hospital Stays: None, thank god. Although, I have fainted in a hospital when my wife was getting an IV. So, that was fun.

P~Pet Peeve: Old men who try to take $4.38 worth of nickels and pennies through the airport metal detectors. I'm a pretty easy going guy, so I don't get TOO annoyed very easily.

Q~Quote from a Movie: "Keep breathing, keep living, because tomorrow the sun will rise.......and who knows what the tide may bring in." Tom Hanks - CastAway

R~Right or Left Handed: Right. But sometimes I like to play "stranger" and bat left handed. (If you get that joke, you're reading the right blog)

S~Siblings: Younger brother and sister

T~Time you wake up: 5am. Never much later than 5:30

U~Underwear: Seriously, this must have been for girls. For that matter, it was probably written by a guy. But I have enjoyed how all of the girls have dodged this question. (Boxers / boxer briefs when I run)

V~Vegetable you Dislike: Anything that isn't wrapped in bacon. (Onions / Tomatoes)

W~What Makes You Late: Traffic.

X~X-rays You’ve had Done: Haha, of course X is X-rays. What the hell else are they going to ask for the letter x!? Other than my teeth, I've had a few for stress fractures.

Y~Yummy Food you Make: I like to think that I am a grill master. Doesn't every guy? For that matter, what guy says the word "Yummy"??

Z~Zoo Animal Favorite: Lions. Being a male lion is pretty kick ass. You're considered the king of the jungle, your wife does most of the hard work of getting food, and everyone is afraid of you..... Clearly, it is good to be king.

Barefoot Neil Z said...

You can also sit on your hand until it goes to sleep...

ajh said...

Totally agree on the tagging. Lots of time to do. I like the no tagging play along info thingies like this one. Like the pics you added to this.

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Sheesh Barefoot!! =) I was thinking even with the lefty it can't be a stranger for long...but I don't know for sure.

And love that about your part of the bed being the edges around the the middle. My husband needs to take some serious notes from you.

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

E = hilarious. Thanks for being honest, lol.

Kate said...

I don't remember seeing anyone who dodged the underwear question. Buncha exhibitionists. :)

And bacon-wrapped tomatoes and onions would be fantastic!

Chris K said...

How the hell can you write an "ABC's of Adam" and not mention pooping?

Pam said...

K - Awwwwwww

R - LOL. Seriously.

U - Kate's right. I haven't seen a single female dodge the undies question either.

Nobel4Lit said...

The fact that I understood "R" puts me in a bad place, I think. Ha ha!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

hahahaa! All of these were funny! And, you lil guy is ADORABLE!

I kind of thought E would involve the word "poop" somewhere??

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

Update your races page, dude.

Caroline said...

funny and hmm nice (?) picture!!!!

SupermomE12 said...

Great Castaway quote! And for the record, I totally did NOT dodge the underwear question... I said, "not when I run". :)

Zaneta said...

How cute is your little one?! Three months already?! time flies!

Jill said...

Hayden is ROCKING those shades! Too cute.

Sorry to hear you had a quick trip to Iowa for an ill family member...Iowa in winter is NOT fun either!

Jamoosh said...

I thought my blog was the reason you lived. Reality bites...

C2Iowa said...

good list. No poop on the list??? strange like "R"????

ShutUpandRun said...

It could have totally been xylophone you know.

Chanda M. DeFoor said...

Yes, I'm reading the right blog.

Jen said...

Stranger, interwebs... who are you and how come you are just like my boyfriend?

jess said...

I love your sense of humor, I hope I get the chance to meet you at a race!

Chad said...

"Gold or Silver":......Wait, is this list supposed to be for girls?
Blogging and the internet in general is supposed to be for girls.

"quads in marching band"
It's ironic that you have no quads now.

Laura said...

potentially the best ABC I have read thus far...

Kittee said...

Thanks for the chuckle this morning before I decided to get some work done.

Your little guy is precious...

funderson said...

LOVE this list... Hope your family is doing OK

JessiePants said...

I knew that your blog would be good for a chuckle on Monday morning - E and C...good stuff : )

Emily said...

Your C and U are my favorites.

Katie said...

Haha I only read the U answer for all of these (is that weird) and it is the only one I am tempted to answer :D

You made the whole thing pretty amusing though.

2 Slow 4 Boston said...

Funny list. I can relate to most of it. You missed one detail about the king of the jungle though... Lions have multiple 'wives', since they are cats, let's just say they get lots of pussy. Ha

BTW, I tagged you on my blog. Ironically, you might get as stressed reading it as 'a 4 year old trying to pick out a candy bar'.

Andrew Opala said...

Howdy stranger. Please see your local priest about this before Easter.

BTW you missed the letters Ł Ĕ Ā Ŧ Ź

Dash said...

Dash is hypo-allergenic.
I'm just saying.

Pretend this is real said...

"My wife's half is the middle half. My half is split up amongst the rest of the bed on either side." AHAHAHAH! Nice. As it should be.

Aron said...

My husband turns 30 in July too :)

XLMIC said...

New to your blog and wanted to find out more about you... lol. What better way than via the ABC's? Your little one is just cuter than cute! You're hilarious, as advertised. And why do you think women have been dodging that underwear question?
