An Interview with Robin

An interview with Robin of At Four O'Clock
I think Robin first commented me sometime last year, and that’s how I came across her blog. She’s an interesting person, and she’s always doing these blogging memes and x number of days challenges. Robin named her blog after the time of when she married her husband on a Friday – At Four O’Clock.

And the interview begins. 🙂

I am Robin, an almost-25-year-old South Carolina (USA) native. I have a wonderful husband. We are dog parents (no human kids, no desire for any). We believe in Jesus, not religion. I like pasta, all the seasons of the year, Halloween, books, movies, and coffee.

1. What is the most memorable pick-up line you’ve ever heard? Who said it to you, and what was your reaction?

A man approached me at a restaurant where I used to work and told me that I was pretty, with beautiful eyes. I just said thank you and made some excuse to walk away, not sure what else to do. This man was actually my now-husband. I didn’t realize it had been him until after we met again, two years later, and began dating.

2. What profession would you not like to do?

After being a cashier in two hardware/home improvement stores, I have absolutely no desire to do that again. There is almost constant rude, mean, and often sleazy treatment from both co-workers and customers – much more so than at other cashier jobs (I have been a cashier at other places).

3. What is your least favorite word?

I can’t stand the cute-sy abbreviations for husband – “hubs”, “hubby”, “hubb-o”, “husbo”, etc.

4. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?

I don’t know, really. I don’t think I want someone else’s life, even a fictional one.

5. What is the best piece of advice you have to offer others?

Be true to yourself. Don’t make serious decisions based on what other people want, on articles you read, etc. Consider whether your friends, family, and the writers of those articles have to live with your choices.

6. Where’s Waldo?

In a galaxy far, far away.

Did you find any similarities between the two of you?

AwwW, the interview is interesting. 🙂 I loved the part when she said, “Be true to yourself. Don’t make serious decisions based on what other people want, on articles you read, etc. Consider whether your friends, family, and the writers of those articles have to live with your choices.”. So true. :}

Anyway, have a great week, Liz! 🙂 Take care. /hehe

For those that don’t know, I am Robins’ husband and the one thing that I can attest to about her is her personality is one that leaves people wanting to know more about her. She is truly an exceptional person and is a very unique individual. (The “hubs” comment drives her absolutely NUTS! LOL) I appreciate reading this interview as I found out where she thought Waldo was….Never knew that she thought that…

@J, Hello. 🙂 And you blog, too. xD That’s cool.

Do you think Waldo is hiding elsewhere? 😉

1. Either it was a coincident to bump into him again two years later or he had it all planned out. Also, I watch too many movies.

2. I think any job that has to do with helping customers is annoying. Very annoying. I’ve done retail for many years and it never gets any easier when you deal with rude people.

3. Yeah I’m not a big fan of those terms either. Same goes to “wifey”.

5. Advice, taken!

@tiff, I probably should have been more clear. We met again when I got a new job at a place where he worked. There is no way he could have planned for me to apply and be hired there (he was a manager, but not one that had any say in applicants or hiring choices).
