Definitely go… Watching on TV is boring!
Patriots vs. Dolphins game, December 2009
4. Would you rather… Read a book or watch TV?
I love both and as a librarian I know I should say read a book but I usually pick TV first… Then read before I go to bed.
the pile of books on my bedside table
5. Would you rather…Go to bed early or sleep in late?
Sleep in late! I am definitely more of a night owl than a morning person.

These tortillas only have one Weight Watchers point!! A hummus wrap is only three points!
