Here’s what you need to know about today’s blogger spilling her issues—she has two kids, drinks, swears (those things might be related), and writes about suburban life in a way that is anything but crass for all you pearl-clutchers out there. Instead it’s funny and relatable and makes you want to hang out if it meant you didn’t have to put on real pants or makeup.
Oh, and also that she’s giving away something at the end of this post!
So without further ado, I present to you Ms. Foxy Wine Pocket, herself.
Name: Kathryn Leehane, but I love it when people call me “Foxy”
Blog: Foxy Wine Pocket
Where, what and why do you write?
Where: I write in my breakfast room. (“Breakfast room” sounds way more fancy than it really is; it’s a tiny nook off of my kitchen. I also call my teeny-tiny backyard a “courtyard” for the very same reason—fancy.) Anyhow, I like hanging out in that room because I can see all of the comings and goings in front of my house and in the neighborhood. I’m nosey like that.
What: I write (sometimes irreverent and inappropriate) humor on my blog and anywhere else people let me spew my nonsense. I also write non-humor essays, and I’m currently writing my first book.
Why: Because people got tired of listening to me in-person. Even my dog is done with me.
First thing you think of when you wake up in the morning.
“Do I really need to shower this morning or can I sleep a little longer?”
Three websites you visit every day.
What’s an unusual talent and/or accomplishment you could never put on a resume?
I can do this with my lips:
If you could rule the land for one day, what laws would you create and enforce?
Free coffee in the morning. Mandatory mid-day naps. Free wine at night
You can only eat three foods for a week. What are they?
Cured meats, olive bread, and cheese
The last thing you Googled?
“Can you drink alcohol after a colonoscopy” (The answer is you really shouldn’t.)
It’s the holidays–best and worst gift you’ve been given?
Best: A collection of John Hughes movies from my husband.
Worst: A gift card to a men’s clothing store from my mother-in-law. In her defense, she got her stores mixed up (but she did walk into the actual store to buy it).
What question do you wish I had asked you and what would be your reply?
Question: What’s the most ridiculous fight you and your spouse have ever had?
Answer: About eighteen years ago, my husband ate my sandwich.
*pauses for effect*
HE ATE MY F-ING SANDWICH, and an epic argument ensued. We’ve had our fair share of spats and arguments, but The Great Sandwich Tragedy of 1997 is one that has really stuck with me throughout the years. So, naturally, I wrote all about it in a book, “Clash of the Couples.”
Editor’s note: There’s no need to pause for effect. I am as protective of my food as a rabid mother badger, so I feel you 100 percent on that one.
And I have to say that I have read that story in “Clash of the Couples” and was cringing throughout the whole thing because FOOD and also because it was hilarious and relatable. That’s why I’m so happy to say WE’RE GIVING AWAY A COPY OF THE BOOK!!!
*Jumps around like Oprah, waving her arms all around most likely knocking a lamp off the table*
It’s described as a “hits-close-to-home anthology featuring a collection of completely absurd lovers’ squabbles and relationship spats. Think couples fight over kids, sex, and money? Think again! Furniture and the last beer are what genuinely ignite our feuds. And no argument is off limits. This book has it all!”
This giveaway will be open to anyone in the United States who has a sense of humor and leaves a comment on the question below. For extra good karma, go check out her blog and Facebook page. I will randomly choose a winner Monday night. Good luck, and thank you Foxy!
