    dog-Our adorable mixed will not tolerate a cat.

    hamster-Son had one when he was little. It was pretty easy to take care of and watching him on his wheel provided hours of entertainment!

    parakeet-Other choice was snake so I had to pick parakeet!

    down comforter-just so comfy

    coffee-Isn’t this one of the essential food groups?

    Coke-It’s goes with everything!

    beach-so relaxing and soothing sounds of the waves

    Europe-tough choice
    Reason? I guess I watched too many episodes of Downton Abbey.

    Dog because I’ve had 3x as many dogs in my life as cats, but I do love my cats!

    Hamster. Cute and cuddly.

    Parakeet (also called a Budgerigar or Budgie). I’ve had two.

    Quilt because of their weight.

    Coffee!!!!

    Coke Zero- occasionally only.

    Mountains! I love trees, birds, and the sound of wind through the trees.

    Europe. Australia has huge gross bugs and snakes.

    Here are my own answers.

    dog - I've always loved dogs. I feel indifferent toward cats.

    hamster - I've owned soft, furry pets before but never a reptile, so I didn't choose turtle, but I really like them!

    parakeet - I found a parakeet on the sidewalk a few days ago, and when I tried to rescue it, it flew just out of my reach. A few hours later, I went back to see if I could find it, and someone else was in the process of rescuing it. But I realized how cute they are!

    down comforter - I have always loved down.

    coffee - I'm not a huge coffee or tea fan, but I like coffee drinks, so I chose coffee.

    Coke - my favorite

    mountains - I always feel a sense of adventure in the mountains.

    Europe - Such a variety of countries to explore

    "Other choice was snake so I had to pick parakeet!" That made me laugh!

    "you buying?" I would contribute a couple bucks. LOL

    coffee!!

    Coke

    mountains-as long as there is a lake nearby

    I love both, but I decided cats are best for me. I had planned on getting a Shiatzu when I retired. Once the time came, I realized that I valued my sleep. You have to wake up to take dogs out to potty. Cats don't wake you up every morning.

    hamster OR turtle I don't like either 1 at all.

    parakeet OR snake I don't like either 1. My cats would enjoy a parakeet, but it would not end well.

    down comforter OR quilt Oh, Can I just have both? Alaska gets cold! If I had to pick just 1 I guess it'd be the down comforter.

    coffee OR tea No problem! Coffee!

    Pepsi OR Coke I had not drank either for ages, but drank a large Pepsi 2 days ago. I could not sleep that night. The clock was at 5am, 6am, 7 am, and I finally decided to just stay up 30 some hours to avoid getting any worse off schedule. Something about the caffeine in them makes it so I can't sleep. I only drink coffee in the morning and know better than to drink caffeine in the evening!

    mountains OR beach This is hard. If I could only have 1, it'd be the beach.

    I like both, but if I could only have 1, I'd take Europe. The flight to Australia from here is grueling long!

    This was a fun, but hard 1, Gracie! :) Love it!
