This popped up on my Facebook page tonight and caught me by surprise. Sure, it's just a stupid quiz that claims it will crack my code in ten easy questions, but it gave me pause. Why was I born?
Because it was the 70s and my mom had a weakness for Tom Jones and doobies? Because someone needed to come along and perfect banana bread? Because without me, the Industries for the Blind people would have no one to buy their $40 light bulbs and $65 trash bags (which are really terrific, you have to admit)?
Clearly, I had to take the quiz and find out my life's purpose.
How do you like to spend your weekends?
Since riding in my private jet with Colin Firth was not an option (and really, if I am going to pretend to have a private jet, I am going to have my celebrity husband flying with me), I chose spending time with friends and family. Yawn.
What is your signature style?
Nursing bras and granny panties were, oddly, not on the list. I went with "cute and comfortable".
What makes you happy?
Accolades from other people, duh! I mean, the love of my family. Right.
Do you want kids?
A little fucking late to be asking this one, don't you think?
When you walk into a room, people...
Hide the liquor and knives.
A half dozen more of these insightful questions and the answers is revealed. (Drumroll, please!)
YOU WERE BORN TO HAVE A FAMILY
You are sensible and family-oriented. You think about the future and you value what's truly important in life. You are loving and loyal.
Are you sure? Not YOU WERE BORN TO BE A ROCKSTAR or YOU WERE BORN TO MARRY COLIN FIRTH or even YOU WERE BORN TO SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER.
You were born to have a family. Ten questions on a quiz written by some jackass frat kid all hopped up on Five Hour Energy has pegged me, square. Thank you, frat kid, and thank you, Facebook, for justifying my life choices and restoring my faith in my ability to parent. It is, after all, what I was born to do.
