1.Promoguy says, “When I was a teenager, I used to ride all the “spin-y” rides at the fair and fun parks. I’d never get dizzy or sick, and I could ride them all day. My favorite was the Tilt-A-Whirl. Now I should call it the “Tilt-A-Hurl” because it seems I can’t even get on a Merry-Go-Round without feeling queasy.” Is there anything you used to be able to do physically that you no longer can? What changed?
I used to be able to read in a moving vehicle for hours. Now, it makes me queasy, especially if there are hills involved, or other vehicles passing us. It’s a bummer, because I love to read and I’m usually the passenger when Howie and I go anywhere. What changed? Probably too many years of sinus infections; there’s some truly frightening stuff up in my head to this day, LOL.
2. If you could go to lunch with someone famous, anyone living or dead, who would you choose? What questions would you ask them?
I think Jay Leno would be a lot of fun. I’m not sure what I’d ask him, other than to tell more of his stories. I’m not feeling very inspired today, sorry!
3. On that same thought, there are probably several Bloggers you enjoy reading but have never met in real life. Which one Blogger would you most like to meet for dinner? Why did you pick that person? What would you talk about? What do you have in common? What would you do after dinner?
Oh, I think Busgirlie is the person I first want to meet. I picked her because her blog is the one I’ve read the longest and I know a little more about her (still have some catching up to do, though!). I think we’d laugh ourselves silly and stay up late telling stories many would find repugnant – but we’d also be able to connect about depression and have a good cry.
4. Money (or the lack thereof) is the number one cause of arguments amongst couples. Do you find this to be true? If there really was a “Money Tree” you could go an pick, would this really solve a couple’s problems?
Oh, I know it’s a huge source of conflict amongst couples! My DH and I subscribe to the “one pot” theory, and we’ve always just kept a joint checking account together. For a long time, I made more than him. Now he makes more than me (I’m a homemaker, so that doesn’t take much, LOL). Either way, having the money be both of ours has been a good thing. There’s no “his stuff” and “my stuff” going on. I don’t think having a money tree would solve anything about money arguments, because the selfishness and insecurity that drives such conflicts would remain.
5. Speaking of arguments, have you ever been drawn into any nasty, hateful arguments? The kind where hurtful things were said that had nothing to do with the fight at hand? What was that all about? How did it turn out?
Of course I have. They’re the pits, nomatter how you look at them. The pleasure of zinging a person is temporary, and then you’re left doing clean-up and regretting the words that so easily flew from your mouth in anger.
6. When was the last time you had to admit you were wrong about something? How did that go?
You mean the last time today, or what? I’m frequently admitting I’m wrong. I often get worked into a huff with my mom. The gap between my ideal of how I want to be and the reality of how I sometimes am to those I love is a wide one. I’m wrong a lot of the time — who isn’t? I don’t have a problem in admitting it – I’m human, just like everyone else.
7. Now for a slight change of theme….what song should never have been written?
Hmmmmm, probably the theme to “Three’s Company”. Because if it never was written, that might mean the show never would have aired. I see the reruns while flipping through the channels and I can’t believe I loved that show when I was a kid.
BONUS: Are you ready for a new sensation?
Yep, and I’m about ready to experience one. We’re heading down south on Friday and I get to experience cajun-induced indigestion. Up to this point, I’ve only experienced midwestern-indigestion!
