I came across a fun meme today. It's called Sunday Stealing hosted by Bev Sykes of Funny the World. Every Sunday she posts a bunch of thoughtful questions that she has "stolen" from elsewhere for participants to answer. Who doesn't like to answer questions, especially about themselves? Intrigued? Check out Sunday Stealing here, after checking my answers, of course.
1. The strangest place you've ever been.
The strangest place I've ever been is a thinker. Shall I consider a place itself as being strange or a place where I encountered something weird? Better yet, the unfamiliar concept of being in a certain place, and it still feels unfamiliar (thankfully) after I leave that location?
My answer. . .Thummm tha tha tha Thaaaaaaaa! . . .the hospital last year. From the moment I entered that hospital near dawn to the moment I stepped out the door the following afternoon was surreal. My gosh!
2. Unusual food combinations you enjoy.
Pancakes, syrup, and several dabs of tasty hot sauce.
3. Your best cure for hiccups.
I'm still searching, hic.
4. Something you have never done but would like to try.
Play the Taiko drums.
5. A routine you do every day without fail
I'm in my renewal era, aka retirement from The Man. lol. I've seen "School of Rock" a lot. I love that scene in the school hallway in which the uptight principal played by Joan Cusack is greeted by a male student saying "Ms. Cusack (I can't recall the character's name), You're the Man." He then gives her a nod. "Why, thank you," says Ms. Cusack. . . .See how I distracted us from the question. That seems to be my routine.
6. Something new you've recently learned.
I read something this morning that was news to me. But, I can't recall what I read, so I guess I haven't recently learned anything other than one of my brain cells was not paying attention.
7. Your keenest sense.
Hearing. As I'm composing, I hear the snores of a crow over the faint drone of Sunday traffic on the road that's the main highway through our county.
8. Whether you prefer cooking or cleaning up.
Cooking, most times. Since I don't do dishes often (the Husband's job, hurrah!), cleaning up is fun on occasion.
9. Where were you the last time you saw the sun rise.
I stood in the hallway peeping out the window to note where the sun was in its rising, then went back to bed.
10. A recent time you were embarrassed.
It was this morning when I thought about the latest stunt of our executive leader whose public experience includes being a reality TV host. I am embarrassed that our country's laundry is out for the whole world to see.
11. An everyday sound that delights you.
The Husband's laugh.
12. The last conversation you had with a stranger.
The sales clerk at the pet store yesterday.
This being Sunday, it's also time All Seasons hosted by Jesh at The Jesh Studio. I'm heading over there, too. Click here to come along.
