1. How good are you at delaying gratification?
No I love to get the gratification right now!!!!
2. Maybe a marshmallow wouldn’t be too difficult a temptation for you. What food (or anything else) would be most tempting?
Anything that has bread with it.  I love bread and can’t eat it so that would have to be my biggest temptation.
3. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being saintly) how patient are you?
-12 lol I am the least patient person I know.
4. Have you ever waited for something in life only to be disappointed upon realization of the goal/object/etc.?
Nope not at all
5. Are you a person who takes shortcuts?
I sure am because I hate waiting around and what not.  I get bored easily so waiting and me don’t really work.
6. Which line is hardest to wait in?
I hate any lines.  If you can’t tell I am not that patient at all so waiting and me don’t very good together.
7. Did you wait to discover the gender of your unborn child until its birth?
Since I was placing her for adoption I found out early.  Didn’t wanna keep the adoptive parents waiting and what not.
8. Are you more patient with children or the elderly?
Elderly- I think this is because I worked in a nursing home for awhile and helped take care of my Great Grandma while she was dying.
9. Did you ever sneak a peek at a present?
No I haven’t but I am so hard to shop for that I always know what I am getting before hand anyways.
10. What is the longest you’ve ever waited for anything?
Not sure but it couldn’t have been very long because I don’t like to wait for anything.
11. Who has more patience, you or your significant other?
Not sure neither of us or very patient but if I had to pick I would have to say him
12. Which of the following songs about waiting is your pick for the best? (OK, you may substitute another, if you like.)

A) Anticipation by Carly Simon
B) The Waiting by Tom Petty
C) Right Here Waiting for You by Richard Marx
D) Wait for Me by Rebecca St. James
