Questions and Answers

Good day People! Hope the week is treating you kindly.

I’ve been trying to come up with a post for a couple of days now. No luck. I could have written about a new story I have percolating in the old brain box but I think it’s a bit too soon for that. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know down the road.

Then I thought about doing a poem. Nothing would come out right. For some reason, I have to be in a certain mood to write poems. Not there.

Then I thought about doing a word fun post. Eh wasn’t interested in that either. Ever get where I’m at? Want to write a post…..can’t think of a damn thing to write about.

So I’ve come up with the good old questions and answers theme…..again. Classic.

Here we go!

Do you know your heritage?

Yes, I do. At least as I’ve been told. It’s Native American and German. I’ve been tempted lately to get one of those DNA kits and see what it says. How about you?

What was the best compliment you ever received?

I don’t get many compliments but I would have to say the best one was when I was working. A bunch of us ladies always sat together at the same table for lunch and we would discuss everything. I never participated much as I’m not a people person. One time I did and one lady said to the group, “She doesn’t say much but when she does it’s worth listening to.” That made my day and still does when I think about it.

Do you trust anyone with your life?

I’ll have to say…..no. Not even my doctors. I check every pill she prescribes for me to see what they are for and any side effects. As for just regular folks. Um, no, not really. Hell, I don’t even trust me.

Would you lie in court for a close friend if it meant saving your friend from going to jail for life?

Depends. I know I should say sure since they are my close friend but depends on what they’ve done. If it’s murder I’d still say ‘depends’. I mean what if they killed someone who had been abusing them for years? See what I mean…..depends. I’m not like some people and say no one deserves losing their life. Yes, some do. So yes, the answer would have to be yes…..depending on the circumstances.

What question do you hate to answer?

How come you don’t have kids? That question irks me no end. Mostly because I know if I answer honestly I’ll get…..’you don’t know what you’re missing’ soon afterward. Eh, yes I do. I’m missing nothing. Not for me anyway.

What habit are you proudest of breaking?

Smoking. It was a long hard bad habit to break but I did it. Of course I tried dozens of times through the years but finally did it cold turkey almost ten years ago.

Is there something you regret NEVER doing?

I regret never riding on a motorcycle. I had a few chances but was always too afraid to do it. Of course, that’s when I was younger. Now I’m older and braver…..or more stupid. Up in the air about that one.

Who was your first love?

Oh man, that goes back a lot of years. My very first crush in school was a boy named Roy. He was blond and blue-eyed and such a sweetheart. My first serious ‘love’ was the boy across the alley from us. He was older and in the Air Force. His name was Jim, also another blond. He was tall and good-looking and more interested in my sister. ha!

If you had to describe yourself in 3 words…what would those 3 words be?

honest, smart, questioning

How would you describe your best friend in 3 words?

honest, smart, funny

If you could turn into any animal, which one would you be?

A wolf. I love wolves. They are loyal, loving, smart and beautiful creatures.

Now it’s your turn! If you had one question to ask ME, what would it be?

 

There you have it, folks. Please feel free to do your own post with the questions or answer them in the comment box. I’m always interested in learning about you!
