The Friday Five

The Friday Five

If you...

1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?
I think that I would probably serve Mexican food. I love tacos and burritos and enchiladas, etc. Hmmm... I am getting hungry just thinking about it. The meat, the cheese, the tomatoes and salsa. All of the sour cream and chips... Ok, next question.

2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?
Probably a book store. I would love to run the counter, and just sit there and read. I would probably have a wide variety of books. Lots of Christian books and lots of children's books. I would also like to have a row of classic books. And there would definitely be a coffee shop. (With free coffee for me.) My guess is that my shop would be next to a Krispy Kreme! Oh, now that I think about it, I think that I might want to change restaurants...

3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be?
My first choice would be a compilation of lessons that I have taught in my Bible classes, and in the other classes from time to time. I have noticed that a lot of books are done that way. Mostly they don't start from scratch. They take things they have been working on already and just compile the material into a readable form.

I would also be interested in writing a story of some sort. I don't think that I would actually be able to do this. But the students love it when I start telling stories. But I think that is more about my mannerisms, than it is about the story.

4. ...ran a school, what would you teach?
Since I am a teacher already, I know the answer to this one. It would definitely be math and Bible. When I went back to school to be a teacher, it was a toss-up between math and science. I chose math because it would be easier to prepare for on a day to day basis. Not as much prep time, etc.

Now that I have been teaching math for a few years, I have grown to love the subject. I always liked math, but now I find myself "thinking math" all of the time. I see it in everything. And I love learning more about it all of the time.

I also love teaching Bible. Next to understanding the Word of God... what else matters?

5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?
Seriously... probably funny songs for kids. My musical talent is so bad that I can't even think seriously about myself singing. I wish I could sing better. My wife has a beautiful voice. And it would be neat to be able to sing with her. But alas, that probably won't happen. (Although my wife does think that I have a good voice, but I think that she is biased.)
