Hello, people! I do hope your weekend went well. On Mondays, I usually do Cee’s Share Your World post but unfortunately, Cee has been ill the last few days and will not be posting her famous Monday questions for us to answer.
So, I have decided to post some of my own questions with of course my answers to them. If anyone would like to answer the questions please feel free to do so!
Here we go……..
Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone?
No, not that I recall. If I have it wasn’t on purpose. I’m terrible at practical jokes or joke telling.
What is your most essential appliance?
I was going to say my refrigerator but then I thought, well I have gone without one for a while, it can be done.
For this house right now I would have to say the microwave. I use that thing every single day, several times a day. The husband uses it more than me. Or my coffee maker, although again I have made coffee on the stove before and can if I have to. It doesn’t make the best coffee, though.
Have you ever been in a newspaper?
No. Probably the only time I will ever be in a newspaper is the obit section.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Free. No, really. I wanted to be free. I’m still not sure I made it. If you mean career wise, well, like most kids I had phases. I wanted to be in the Navy for the longest time but I couldn’t pass the physical (bad hearing). I also wanted at one time to be a vet but was afraid that all those hurting and abused animals would just tear me up too much.
Then I decided I wanted to be a secretary (that’s what we call administrative assistants back then. I’m not sure what they call them now.)
Was that for a few years, hated it…plus I refused to make coffee for the boss. He didn’t appreciate it.
I always wanted to be a writer but I knew even back then one very rarely makes enough money doing that but it didn’t stop me from dreaming.
Have you ever had a secret admirer?
Wouldn’t be much of a secret if I knew, now would it? I have no idea but I very much doubt it. I’m not the kind of woman who men (or women for that matter) fall for and are afraid to step forward and say so.
What’s the most unusual conversation you’ve ever had?
I have had lots of unusual conversations. I seem to draw that out in people. I’m open to discuss pretty much anything, unusual or not.
My most unusual? Hm, I think I would have to say the most unusual was when I was much younger and my best friend and roommate was in her mental breakdown and we discussed her hallucinations. We discussed what she saw and what they were saying to her. This was all while she was in the middle of her breakdown and I was trying my best to calm her down so she wouldn’t kill me.
Looking back I would have to say, yeah, that was the most unusual. It saved my life, though, I firmly believe that.
Are you a bad loser?
I don’t like to lose. Who does? I don’t think I’m a bad loser. I mean I don’t throw cards in card games or swear (much) or pout. I’m used to losing. Terrible thing to say, eh?
Do you have any superstitions?
I would love to say….no. But, if I’m being completely honest I am somewhat. I do believe that if you think negative thoughts it will come back on you. That might be karma.
I’m not superstitious about black cats or walking under ladders or any of that kind of stuff. I’m superstitious about universal things, like karma.
I don’t throw salt over my shoulder (my ex MIL used to do that). Or my grandmother always said not to put a hat on a bed as it would bring bad luck. I don’t own any hats so I don’t think I have to worry.
I do kind of believe in special numbers and what they mean. I don’t know if that qualifies as superstitious. Probably does.
Are you good at keeping secrets?
Yes, I am. Very good. Some I’ve been carrying around for too many years to count. Others are more new.
So, if you have a secret you are dying to tell someone, I’m your gal!
Have you ever used the yellow pages?
I’m old. Used to be the only way to find a business’s phone number. Now I just Google stuff.
So the answer would be ….yes, of course I have. Sometimes I still do.
