wHooligan feature! Elsie Amata

Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Elsie's favorite beach -
isn't it lovely?

It's time for another wHooligan feature! Joining us today is Elsie Amata. She also has an active Facebook account here.

Elsie has been an assistant for the Insecure Writer's Support Group. That alone is enough cred to know she's amazing! But there's more! This woman writes extremely honest posts from time to time that will make you catch your breath. Her self-reflection and honesty is just.. great. Definitely check her out.

Each of my wHooligans has answered a few of the questions that participants posed to the co-hosts over on the A-Z blog, and here are Elsie's answers:

You're on a crowded train, and the person across the way from you (who is probably 20 years your senior) finishes a bag of chips, and throws his trash on the floor. Do you speak up and tell him to pick up his trash, or just let him go?
The teenage me wouldn’t have even noticed.  The impatient me would have said, “Dude, really?” accompanied by an exaggerated eye roll. Today, I would pick up the garbage myself, and refrain from comment.

What makes you cry? (Emotional reasons. Onions don't count.)
Military homecomings.  Doesn’t matter if it’s a news story or some blasted dog food commercial (you know the one!).  I tear up every time.  Of course, it may have something to do with being married to veteran.  Just my guess.

Where do you go to "Get away from it all"?
My go to place is the beach.  If I’m stressed, I visit the coast.  If I want to spend quality family time with the kids, we play in the sun and sand.

If you could sing any song with the artist who wrote/performed it, what would it be and with whom?
I know I should pick someone cool, like, I don’t know, Jimi Hendrix.  But, the moment I read this question, I thought of Prince.  Before he turned his name into a symbol then back again.  Any song from Purple Rain will do, as long as he’s wearing those high-heeled boots!  //whew//

Make sure you stop by to say hello to Elsie today!

Anyone do anything fun for St. Patty's Day?
