The Dad Behind The Blog | Anchors Aweigh


The Dad Behind The Blog

I have been wanting to feature my dad on the blog for a while now, so this "Boy Behind The Blog" is all about him! My dad is one of the funniest people you'll ever meet, and he's incredibly intelligent. We have a really fun relationship, and I got such a kick out of asking him these questions. He reads my blog probably more than anyone else, so he was overdue for a Q&A session. Without further ado, here's a bit from this month's boy behind the blog!
Questions and Answers (my responses to his answers are in grey):

1. How do you feel about Chelsea's blog?
Clearly, he's one with the words. The funny thing about this answer is that I can almost guarantee "strongly" has multiple connotations. This is an answer open to interpretation if I've ever heard one.

2. If you could live a day in the life of one celebrity for a day, who would it be and why?
I want to be Dale Earnhardt Jr. so I can admit to Jeff Gordon that he's a vastly superior driver.
I grew up watching Jeff Gordon race on Sundays with my dad. He's always been a big fan! All of his Father's Day gifts growing up were some sort of Jeff Gordon paraphernalia. 

3. What is your favorite meal?
Bone-in ribeye from Bob's Steak and Chop House, duck and plumb sauce from Paris, or any Italian meal on Hanover Street in Boston. 
I'm impressed with the variety and specificity in this answer. He's well traveled, that's for sure!

4. What is your favorite US city?
Boulder, CO for a week in the summer, Indianapolis, IN for the Indy 500, or NYC any weekend of the year.
Apparently, he chose to hear "top 3" instead of "favorite" with this question. He felt that since he honored brevity so much on question 1, he had room to expand on this one. I'll take it. 

5. What is your favorite TV show?
It changes almost weekly, but this week it's "Fixer Upper" because it's the only home renovation show where everyone seems to always get along. 
He said this while watching "Flipping Vegas" where they always argue, so it's not entirely unreasonable to assume that influenced his answer. I was convinced he would say "Duck Dynasty" on this one, but since his favorite changes weekly, it looks like I was just a few weeks too late. He also came back into the room 20 minutes later and decided to change his answer to the live telecast of the Indy 500.

6. If you could have any career other than the one you have, what would it be?
I would be the lead singer for U2, focus on my singing, and abstain from politics. 
Apparently we are using these questions to passive-aggressively identify the celebrities we don't prefer. I had to laugh at this one. Apparently Dad is just not a fan of Bono at the moment. 

7. Who's your favorite pupper granddaughter?
It's close, but since you've narrowed it down to one for me, I suppose I'll go with Jenny. 
There's nothing like winning by default!

Thanks for participating, Dad! Jenny feels so honored to have been your answer to the last question. You've really made her pupper day.
