I saw this on Shannon's blog and knew immediately I'd ask McMister to do it. I also knew there was no way in hell he'd do it on his own and type up the answers. So I asked him out loud and typed what he said. I love it this way because not only did it get him to actually participate, but it shows a glimpse into his personality that written answers wouldn't have.
My answers are in pink, his are blue, and my extra comments are in green.
Please play along with your man-friends! It's really fun to read other people's answers.
1. How long have you been married?
3 1/2 years.
Married? Well, it'll 4 years in September.
2. Where was your first date?
The bar by our apartment in Seattle.
That little place right by your apartment on Queen Anne. The Sitting Room?
(I didn't even remember the name!)
3. Where was your first kiss?
The door to my apartment building after our first date.
In your apartment after our first date.
4. Who first said, "I love you"?
Him, but he'll say me. He thinks it's hilarious to pretend like I did first. We both knew we wanted to say it, and it was a battle to see who could hold out the longest.
You did via text, but you tried to say that I did.
5. What were your wedding colors?
Green, brown and orange.
There was a green. A peach? I don't know if it's red or peach. Those are the colors that I see in the dresses in the photos anyway. But I remember some other colors that I like more that I thought were going to be our wedding colors.
6. What is her most commonly used phrase?
Gracie, no! or I'm hungry.
Probably Oh My God. Yeah, it's definitely Oh My God. If there's anything other than neutral, whether it's good or bad, it starts with Oh My God.
7. Who is her celebrity crush?
Ben Affleck and recently, sometimes Ryan Gosling.
Who did I say you used to get a freebie on? Well, Benjamin Bratt. Notebook guy - Ryan Gosling. Who's the big one? I told him it was Ben Affleck. It's like so gross I don't even wanna think of that. It's like me saying Maria Shriver or something. I can see Ben Affleck and Maria Shriver being married or something. They're like the exact same.
8. If she was ordering drinks for both of you what would you each get?
Cab for me, beer for him. But I never know what kind of beer he wants so I always make him order. If he's in the bathroom or something, I ask if they have Rainier or PBR.
You'd get me a cheap beer, you might even ask them for a crappy beer. Or you might not want to embarrass yourself so you'd ask for like a Bud Light or something. You would say Pabst or Rainier and then work your way down to Bud Light.
9. What is the best meal she has ever cooked you?
Stew, I guess. I'm a terrible cook and McMister is not afraid to say it.
Honestly, that chicken you made the other night was really good. Just because all the other chicken you've ever made is so bad. I love you, but the every chicken you make is like beef jerky.
I knew he'd say that chicken. He has a shockingly short memory.
10. What is the worst meal she has ever cooked you?
Probably microwave chicken burgers... which I make ALL THE TIME.
The spicy thing, you used one can of peppers of hot peppers instead of one hot pepper. That was so bad.
11. What is the most-played song on her iPod?
I don't have an iPod, but Ladybug is Gracie's favorite song, and we listen to it about 40 times a day.
Well, you have a phone, not an ipod. It's definitely not anything you listen to. I guess it's Let It Be for Gracie. But a more relevant thing is what's the most played thing on Sheelah's CD player in her car because that's how she listens to music and that's easily Mariah Carey Christmas.
12. What would she say is your most annoying habit?
Picking his feet while we watch TV.
Picking my feet.
13. What is the last thing she does before she goes to bed?
Like the first time I go to bed? Before I start waking up 300 times a night with both girls? Stretch.
Well, like goes to bed the first time? Before waking up 1,000 times with the kids? Kisses me goodnight. Last thing you do before you get into bed is something with your makeup, I think.
(I was wrong, and he was right about the kissing him goodnight. But the "something with your makeup" is completely wrong. The only makeup I wear is mascara, and I don't take it off until I'm getting in the shower the next morning just in case our house catches on fire or something in the middle of the night. I can't have people seeing me without my mascara!)
14. If you could throw out one item of her clothing what would it be?
This is the weirdest question I've ever heard. I guess maybe some baggy pajamas or something.
That's gotta be something that you wear then, right? That you still wear? I don't know. There were those jeans I didn't like, but that was like three years ago and you look so hot ever since. I don't even think you wore them in between Gracie and Lyla, did you?
15. What would you say is your favorite thing about her?
How much I care about the girls. Or my red hair. He always says he's thankful for my red hair when we go around the table on Thanksgiving.
How smart you are.
16. What's her go-to drink at Starbucks?
I don't drink coffee at all. But I will have a pumpkin spice latte a couple times each year.
That's the worst question I've ever heard. But yeah, her go-to drink is Diet Coke. The only thing you would get at Starbucks is an egg nog latte.
17. What's her blog's name?
