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!

  1. This is great, I might have to borrow it. 🙂
    Okay…what’s the one food that you could eat every day?


    1. Borrow away! 🙂 Pizza!! That or chicken I could eat everyday. I did eat peanut butter sandwiches for almost a year after my divorce so I know I could eat that too.


  2. Thanks for sharing all these answers with us. I enjoyed reading them. I did spend the money to get a DNA test as did my daughter. Very interesting outcome. We paid $99 each for them. I guess I wonder what gets you up in the mornings and keeps you putting one foot in front of the other? I often wonder that question about myself. 🙂 I’d bet you will say coffee. 😉 Think I’ll go get some now.


    1. I am really tempted to get my DNA test done. 🙂 As for what gets me up in the morning and keeps me putting one foot in front of the other? ……Well, you would be right about coffee, it’s certainly up there on my list. But….when things get really stressful and hard for me I get up every morning knowing if I do then that day will be over and the next day will come and soon the bad things will have straightened out and good things will come. If I can get through the rough days then I have the good days to look forward to. 🙂 Now, I’ll have that cup of coffee.

      1. Great philosophy. I have no pets or people that need me and sometimes I wonder why I continue to get out of bed and tackle each day. There are no really bad days, just regular average days. And I continue to rise each day and try to do something useful. Not sure why. 🙂


        1. I imagine you are like me in that we wonder what the next day will bring….so we keep getting up. 🙂 And it would be too boring to stay in bed all day.

  3. My brother did a DNA test and it was interesting but not surprising. I said to him I don’t have to do one now and he said to me ‘what if the results are different?’ Haaaa, I very much doubt that 😀
    My question to you is – what is your favourite flower? 😉


    1. I’m curious about exactly how much Native American blood I have as my mom thinks her mom lied and said she wasn’t full blooded Indian when we all believe she was but the tribes go by whats on the birth certificate and they can’t find my grandmother’s. Sooooo……
      As for my favorite flower, it’s between the Iris and the lilac. 🙂

  4. That’s an insensitive question to ask when people find out you don’t have children. I ask new people I meet if they have children and if they say no. I don’t ask any more questions. Some people choose not to have children but some have tried and couldn’t and it may be hurtful to ask why. Me I think if I could do it over I would be the cool aunt.

    I think I’ve been following your blog and been your friend so long that I don’t have a question to ask. 😉


    1. I don’t think I have ever asked anyone if they have children! It just doesn’t occur to me. You know, even at this age, I’ve been asked that recently?? Crazy! You would make a wonderfully cool aunt! 🙂 No question? Wow, of course I’ve let a lot of my life out there. hahaha. A lot, but certainly not all. 😉
