Last month, I posted The Boyfriend Tag and I had so much fun with it that I’ve decided to put myself in the hot seat and answer some questions about Mike in The Girlfriend Tag.
When/where did you meet my parents?
H: At his house. They invited me round for dinner and I had a whole two hours of sitting in traffic to try and calm my nerves, though I think they only got worse the longer we were in the car. It turned out alright in the end though, and we had a great fish pie!
M: Couldn’t have put it better myself! That traffic was the biggest piss take of 2017; we had to endure a 2 hour car journey for a distance that usually takes 30 minutes or so, because of a bloody rugby game. Finished the evening watching Blue Planet with the whole family which was so lovely!
Who said “I love you” first?
H: He did. It was in his bedroom the first time I went round to his house to meet his family. It was dark and we were getting ready to go to sleep and it just came out and took me completely by surprise. I sat in silence for about 15 minutes before I said it back, and not because I wasn’t feeling the same, just because no one had ever told me before. He never lets me live it down to this day.
M: It’s true, I don’t. What a nerve wracking 15 minutes.
What’s my weirdest habit?
H: You pick my nails and try and slide yours underneath mine when we’re holding hands and its gross.
M: Can’t explain it, I’m literally doing it now to my own nails in between typing my answers.
What am I good at?
H: Soooooo many things, and it annoys me. Playing guitar and knowing the chords to a song without having to research them. And then mixing said guitar into a song. You’re really good at drawing, you edit videos really well, you always know the best and most creative angles to take pictures from. The list is endless, really. I’m you’re biggest fan.
M: Aww thanks hun, you da best-est!
What’s my favorite song?
H: The only thing that comes to mind is Africa by Toto.
If I could go anywhere, where would it be?
H: New Zealand so you could see The Shire/Hobbiton.
What is something you wish I didn’t do?
H: Lick you.
M: It’s not the licking that annoys me, its just the slimy residue left on my perfectly dry skin.
I’m ordering a pizza. What toppings does it have?
H: All the meats and a BBQ sauce base!
M: Word for word, exactly what I would’ve written for my answer.
If I could, what sweet could I eat all day long?
H: The purple packet of skittles.
M: This is a great shout, though Skittles can get too acidic after a big packet and my tongue starts to burn! My granddad makes the best homemade fudge every christmas and I could eat that forever.
What am I deathly afraid of?
H: I honestly have no idea at all, don’t think you’ve ever mentioned it to me!
M: I guess breaking another bone, I dislocated and fractured my right elbow in a trampoline accident and I still get a bit squeamish around the subject!
What’s my nickname?
H: Stubbs, and you get offended when I call you it.
M: Stubbs is correct. Almost my entire school year unanimously decided that my last name was more memorable than my actual name.
What’s my middle name?
H: Colin, after your dad.
M: Spot on lad.
Where was our first trip together?
H: Technically Leicester, to meet my mum! We’ve been away with your friends and family so Ireland in April will be our first official holiday together! Once you’ve met the rest of my family for the first time and we go to Dublin for a couple of days!
M: Once again, 100% what I’d have written for my answer, Leicester, group holiday with mates and now Ireland for our first official holiday together!
How do I drink my coffee/tea?
H: Not properly. A decent amount of milk and one sweetner.
M: Used to be two, so give me some credit there please.
How long do I need in the morning to get ready?
H: At least half an hour, you take longer than I do to get ready most days!
M: Fair, I’d say 20 minutes if I need to be quick, 40 if I’m taking my time with it!
If I become famous, what will it be for?
H: Playing guitar or producing music or some stupid blood meme you’ve made.
M: Definitely the memes.
Am I a morning or an evening person?
H: I feel like you’re an all day person. If you have to be up in the morning then you get up no problem and you usually talk my ear off when we’re going to sleep (not that I mind!). I’m gonna go with evening person, just because you generally tend to wake up later than I do when we have no plans or alarm set.
M: Some truth to that! It all comes down to routine I suppose, during Uni and even on days off, I was getting up at 7:30 everyday for almost a year just to make the most of the day! Though I have also been known in the past to sleep in till 12 or even 1pm.
What was my first job?
H: You worked in a convenience store call One Stop for about four years? You gave me a pretty good history about your time there on our first date, when you wouldn’t shut up talking.
M: 4 years and 5 months to be exact! Yeah I have dealt with some interesting individuals in that time, good for conversations with anyone who’s ever worked in retail!
What did you learn from me?
H: So many things but the only thing coming to mind it that ketchup on scrambled eggs is really good.
M: Literally can’t even fathom having scrambled eggs without the mighty chup!
Who is the organized one in the relationship?
H: 100%, without a doubt, you are the organised one. Organised and tidy, but not always clean though.
M: Yeah, don’t care if its 2pm, 2am or even if we’re running late to an event.. that shirt needs hanging up Han.
If I was an animal, which one would I be?
H: I want to say cat because you love them so much. Maybe it would be something like a Lion or something, a big cat.
M: Please I’d be a house cat, no ifs and or buts about it.
What’s the first thing I would buy if I won the lottery?
H: I hope it would be a house for the two of us but it would probably be some insanely priced guitar.
M: Just to cement how in sync we are I wrote my initial answer first: ‘I’d say my dream guitar and live rig but in reality, probably a nice house considering that’s the next goal for us now!’
