My, what an assortment of questions today for Promoguy’s Monday Mission 2.43:
1. Ever do anything over and over just to make someone else happy but discover you actually hate it?
Well, something I’ve discovered in life is it ain’t all about me. Of course there are such things I’ve discovered I’ve hated. But sometimes in life you grit your teeth and get through the stuff you hate because you love someone enough to sacrifice and step outside of the land of flowers and butterflies. 😉
2. What kinds of obligations do you enjoy?
I struggle with enjoying obligations, per-say. That word has a negative connotation to me, equalling “joyless chore”. I do enjoy being married and the obligation and permenance of that relationship. I enjoy helping my mom and mother-in-law learn the joys of computers, too.
3. What are your feelings about celebrating Halloween?
Bah-humbug. I think the trick-or-treating is fun for kids, but I don’t like the really gory displays. And I have a personal aversion to the color orange because my father was obsessed with hunter’s orange and the spray-painting of such things as trash can lids in said color. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of love for Halloween orange, with the exception of real pumpkins, other squash, and leaves.
4. Are there any stories of bodily functions you would prefer people not share with you in conversation?
It depends on the person and the context. I dislike hearing about zits and their poppage. 😛
5. What do you think is the most important aspect of personal hygiene that bothers you when people overlook it?
Basic cleanliness and deodorant usage. Oh, man, who can’t afford $1.50 for deodorant every few months? And there’s running water and soap just about everywhere if you really care to be clean.
6. Ponder the thought of being forever young, living on endlessly, being immortal. What would that life be like for you?
It would be lonely. I can’t imagine having to leave those I love behind, to watch the decay and death prey upon them as I saw no end in sight.
7. What’s the last thing you felt was “worth fighting for?”
Generally I’m a little wimpy in speaking out about issues, especially those of a more limited interest. I do, however, think the freedoms we have here in the US are worth fighting for. Just the fact that I am free to express such things – that is something worth fighting for.
BONUS: Sooner or later, they all will be gone…why don’t they stay young?
Cute, considering. Forever Young.
Today’s comment question: What is the last thing you do before going to bed?
Usually, if I haven’t already gulped it down, I jump back up and go take my birth control pill. A decade ago, I got into the habit of taking it as I went to bed. Hey, it makes sense since bed is…well, you know, a happenin’ place sometimes and we don’t want kids. The association has stuck, and I’ve only missed a few the last 3,650-odd pills I’ve ingested these last ten years.
