T to the G to the I to the F! Here is this week’s edition of “Friday5”! Play along if you want, it’s fun!
Dr. Seuss’s first published book was And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street!. What’s the most interesting thing you’ve witnessed on your street?
Well there was that guy who asked me that weird question from his truck, but then there are always the geese who decide to slowly cross the street smack dab in the middle of rush-hour traffic.
In The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, a boy removes his hat to pay respect to the passing king, but each hat is somehow replaced by a bigger, fancier hat. If you’re a hat person, what’s your current favorite? If not, under what circumstances did you last wear a hat?
I bought a red, Winter hat last month so I’ve worn that one many times this season. I also have a flowered hat that I wear on special occasions. It was the first thing I bought during my first trip to Texas.
In If I Ran the Zoo…, a boy fantasizes about how fantastic the zoo would be under his administration. What’s your local zoo like, and how do you like it?
I haven’t visited my local zoo in quite awhile. It’s not a bad zoo, I’m more into looking at the reptiles and insects they have on display. It’s a little depressing, though, to see the animals cooped up and away from their natural habitat. The monkeys always seem oblivious, though.
In Green Eggs and Ham, the main character refuses to taste a certain dish until, just to get Sam to leave him alone, he gives in and discovers that he likes it. When did something like this happen to you?
It was awhile ago when I tried sushi for the first time. I haven’t tried every kind of sushi, but the stuff I have tried was really good! Who knew I’d be a fan of raw fish and seaweed?
The Foot Book contains a lesson about judging others based on their feet. Feet seem to be something people have widely polar opinions about! How do you feel about feet, and can you think of someone in your life who has especially nice feet?
I like when my own feet look nice, rather than all bruised up because of jamming my toes into chairs and corners. I also remember a friend who would crack the knuckles on his toes. I found it very impressive at the time.
