The Captain’s Quiz 8: Summer Side Up

I knew it had been a long time since the last Captain’s Quiz, but I didn’t realize the last one was in January! Someone should’ve said something. Oh, you did? Okay.

The title of this quiz is: “Summer Side Up” which is a play on “Sunny-side up”, except this has nothing to do with eggs, but everything to do with summer being associated with the sun and…you get it.

The questions in this quiz will all be related to Summer, in some way.

Let’s do it.


  • To participate, answer the questions below in a blog post of your own and link it back to this post so I see it.

  • There are no right or wrong answers; there are only answers. Feel free to provide as many, or as few details as you want, at your own peril.

  • You will receive a score of 13, or 5 points for your responses to the 10 Questions. Your answers may unlock hidden bonus points, so answer wisely. 

  • There are 3 Bonus Questions. The scoring for them will be kept a secret until the final results are posted.

    So I’m sitting this one out, but just had to share: I had a bunny named Pumpernickel throughout most of college. He was the best! He snored when he slept, would throw temper tantrums if I didn’t feed him on time or left out his favorite fruits, we would jump up on the couch if I was eating trail mix so he could stick his head in the bag and pick out the raisins, he would sleep up against our puppy’s crate when we first brought her home to comfort her during the night… I miss that little dude.

    Though I’m allergic to cats, I’ve always wanted to get an orange cat (outdoor cat most likely) and name it Queso and get him a canine buddy who is brown in color and name it Bean Dip (Bean for short). I know those aren’t breakfast foods in this part of the world, but maybe somewhere!
