Spirit Animal

The other day, Jared came at me with a list of questions:

What's your favorite color? Favorite dessert? Favorite band?
and then the kicker
If you were an animal what would you be?
Looks-wise or personality-wise? I countered

This is a game I've loved for years. My senior year of High School, my friends and I were consumed by lists. We categorized everyone in my AP English class by animal and taste. Strange you may say, but incredibly distracting and hilarious. To this day we refer to certain people as "the Jellied Eel" or "Sun Bear". I was going through a box of old junk just the other day and I found the full list. I was listed as "Baby Seal, Orange Creamsicle".

After much hemming and hawing I decided on a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Jared started laughing and said "That's the exact thing I was thinking of!!"

Do you ever make weird obsessive little lists like this? Shout out to my Raccoon and Kitty Cat!
 (edit: Why is my husband drilling me with all these questions when we've known each other for 5 years? The answer is I don't have a favorite anything to be honest with you, I am fickle and my loves change with the winds and seasons of the moon, or something like that.

He said he was just checking in, but lets hope he was planning some grand surprise where he buys me a King Charles puppy with a blue ribbon around his neck and a cheesecake on the side, while Sufjan Stevens plays in the background)
