[F is for favorite song at the moment:] Hello It's Me, Todd Rund.gren, from 1972 has held that spot ever since I got my old analog clock radio for Xmas and would stay up all night listening to music. I learned that I cannot fall asleep to music.
[G is for favorite game:] Yahtzee, which my son and I have been playing a lot lately - it's how I learned math, so he can, too. I always hear echoes of my grandmother grumbling, "those damn twos." Or alternatively Trouble. Or Connect Four. Or Monopoly. We're board game people around here.

[I is for instruments you play:] When I was a kid, I took clarinet for a year, then the accordion for two years. I still have the accordion and sometimes it comes out to be squawked at Xmas.

[L is for last kiss?:] juvenile and wet with a big fishy pucker, just a bit ago

[N is for full name:] Cricket Cricketson, if you must
[O is for overnight hospital stays:] As an asthmatic kid, I stayed in an oxygen tent for a week when I was in K.

Then I had a few days in the hospital when my son was born.
