Now on to the questions for this week.

 

You were here, now you are lost.

 

Did you ever get lost?

Oh wow, yes! One time when I was living and working in Ft. Worth, I had to go to Dallas to have a meeting with the owner of the Antique Store that I was working at. First time I had ever driven to Dallas on my own. I was newly divorced and broke, had less than half a tank of gas and no money. Anyone who has driven Dallas knows there is always construction going on. Always! So off I went, got to the offices no problem. Had the meeting which was very successful. But, there was construction all over that part of Dallas! I couldn’t go the way I was given directions to go and their detours sucked big time. I got lost. I mean I didn’t go just a little bit out of my way lost. I was big time lost! I had no sense of direction in Texas at all. So instead of heading towards Ft Worth like I thought I was, I was heading toward Oklahoma! LOL Truth! I got so lost when I finally found a gas station to ask for directions to I 820 , they didn’t know any highway 820! I asked them where the hell was I? They informed me I was close to the Oklahoma border! So I headed in the opposite direction, hoping all the time I wouldn’t run out of gas as I had no cell phone and if anyone ever drove those highways back then there was nothing! I was lost for 4 hours! Finally made it back to the store and had a migraine by the end of it. I had to borrow 5 dollars from a friend so I could get gas to get home. That was the worst I had ever been lost. Or as I like to say, I don’t get lost, I have little adventures.

 

Who was your best friend in elementary school?

All through elementary school and half way through junior high my best friend was a girl named Gloria. Her and I were tight friends. She was also I believe a 4th or 5th cousin. Then something happened one summer and she changed. I didn’t know it till years later, but she had been molested that summer and withdrew into herself. She later dropped out school, developed a drug habit and was a prostitute. All from being raped that summer by a grown up. It was so sad, I tried many times to reach out to her, but she rebuffed me. I don’t know what happened to her, but if she’s still alive I wish her well.

 

Since the news television season has started in the US, list three favorite TV shows.

Well since I don’t watch TV, this is going to be a short answer. None.

 

If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?

If I was a mouse in my house, I wouldn’t live long. To show you what I mean, read this post here. It says it all in a funny way.

If you don’t want to read the funny story and comic, then I’ll give another answer. In my house you would be bored to death. I would be in my office on the computer as I am every evening. My husband, who is disabled with arthritis in his spine would be laying in his bed in the living room (makeshift bedroom, living room) watching the TV. Sam my dog would be asleep on his big pillow in my office and the cats…..sleeping somewhere.
