Let’s say we’re heading out for a weekend getaway this weekend. You’re only allowed to bring 3 articles of clothing with you. So, what’s in your bag?
1. underwear (come on!)
3. T shirt
(It hurts me that there's no #4. If I had to choose between undergarments, #1 wins out. But you should know I'd never leave the house, like ever without a full compliment of appropriate unders. I shudder at the thought! Eek!)

3. Make a "to-do" list when I get to work
Sweet, you just scored a whole afternoon to yourself. We’re talking a 3 hour block with nobody around. What 3 activities might we find you doing?

We’re going to the zoo. But, it looks like it could start storming, so it’ll have to be a quick visit. What 3 exhibits do we have to get to?
2. Big cats
3. Reptile house (I'd want to be inside when the storm started!)
You just scored tickets to the taping of any show that comes on T.V. of your choice. You can pick between 3, so what are you deciding between? (I know some of these don’t have live tapings!)

3. 3 pairs of earrings
(Wow, I'm a hoot and a half according to my purse!)
