5. Do you like eggnog? No. Too-too eggy.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Easy Bake Oven. I left it outside that summer and the garbage man picked it up and took it away. I was heart-broken and was told "That's what you get for leaving your toys outside." My folks didn't replace it either. Taught me a good lesson.
