Thursday 13: Brought to You by the Letter "J"

*Idea from Izzy, Emmy 'N Alexander*

1. Jacks – I think this game is a blast.

2. Jack-o-lantern – Mine are of the pathetic variety. I don’t have carving skills, that’s for sure.

3. Jalopy – I enjoy saying this word – it’s so much fun.

4. Jazz – Hate it with a passion! It sounds like noise to me.

5. Jetson’s – Absolutely loved this cartoon as a kid. It was so magical and fun.

6. Jolly Ranchers – Love these candies! I think it’s one of the few candies where I love every flavor.

7. Juggle – I cannot, but my husband and father can both do it.

8. Juice – My favorite is orange juice. I can drink it with just about anything.

9. Jambalaya – I’ve only had it once but really, really liked it.

10. Jumping jacks – While watching The Biggest Loser a couple of years ago, trainer Jillian gave a tip to get up and do jumping jacks during commercial breaks. I thought this sounded like fun so I started jumping away and ended up having an asthma attack. I stay seated during commercials now.

11. June - The best month of the year! (With the 2nd being the best day of the month.)

12. Juniors – The seventh-graders I had during my first year of teaching are juniors this year. Hard to believe; I wonder what they’re like now.

13. Juror – I’ve never been one and will probably never be one now that I’m married to a cop. Thanks a lot, Mitch.

More Thursday 13!

I don't like jazz much either but I like rap even less. Jazz makes me feel like I'm having a nervous breakdown, not relaxing at all.

Hmm. J. I like juice, apple, grape and orange, but cranberry is my favorite.

Too bad about the jumping jacks bringing on an asthma attack... I would just sit still while watching tv too... plus, it's a leisure activity, right?!

Dana said...

Haha, only you would end up with an asthma attack during commercial break! ;)

jolly rancher sticks taste like my childhood. i use to ride my bike to a mini mart and buy them for a nickle...does that mean i am old?

i just found some at a candy specialty shop, bought them for my kids. they weren't a nickle.

Great list! Are you still teaching middle school? I've been doing it 21 years, and the worst effect is a silly sense of humor! I love watermelon jolly ranchers,btw. But only watermelon!
