The Blogger Games – Week 1

The Blogger Games is brought to you this week and every week by The Captain’s Speech. Remember to ask your doctor if The Captain’s Speech is right for you!

Paul is brilliant when it comes to finding new ways to bring us all together as bloggers in the blogging community. This time it’s with (I assume) an Olympics-inspired series of games that will carry us through the next several weeks. Bear in mind that these Blogger Games are separate from The Captain’s Quiz which has occasionally popped up here and there and also there.

Each week, the Games will consist of multiple choice questions about Paul which follow specific topics. This week, the topic is food, something with which I think we can all agree that everyone is at least vaguely familiar. But how familiar are we with Paul’s food-related antics? Let’s find out, shall we?

My turn to share…
Paul says: Tell me about you and food. What do you like to eat? What don’t you like to eat? What foods are overrated? What condiments do you stay away from? Any fun food stories from your past?

Me and food, huh? We’ve had a somewhat tumultuous past, but I think things are on pretty solid footing these days. I’m referring, of course, to my teenage years when I dealt with anorexia. I didn’t so much get along with food then. These days things are fine. I love a good pizza. I hate peanut butter (and always have). I think chocolate overrated. I abhor mustard (but kinda love honey mustard, go figure). I honestly can’t think of any fun food stories from my past at this time. There’s the peanut butter pie incident, but that’s less fun than it is psychologically scarring.

That’s it for this installment of The Blogger Games. Be sure to follow The Captain’s Speech to see how other bloggers respond to Paul’s questions and to follow along with each week’s medal ceremony.
