Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? When I was a kid, I slept with the closet doors open so I could see there was no one there. When I finally realized that I was having nightmares of my clothes coming to life and threatening me, the doors were closed and remain so to this day.
Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel? That’s what they’re there for, no? My mother used to always take ashtrays from hotel rooms when you could smoke in them. I guess that’s where I got it from. But then maybe it’s genetic. My sister used to take steak knives from restaurants because she didn’t have any. But she stopped when she got a full set. One time we were out for Mexican food and I commented on the Cholula hot sauce. She put it into her purse and gave it to me afterwards.
What is your usual bedtime? I’m trying to go to bed earlier so I can get up earlier. So far the earliest has been 9 pm so that I could get up and get out to take photos of the sunrise. But I slept through the entire morning.
Do you like to use post-it notes? No! I used to, but then forgot where I posted the note. Now all notes are on my phone. And then I forget where I put my phone.
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper? I honestly don’t remember. But then I’ve never really written a letter by computer, either. Little messages sent by email and now text. They’ve stopped teaching cursive in schools, I understand. Probably because of me .
Any phobias? Dozens. Insects bigger than my finger, clowns, doctors donning latex gloves, doctors dressed as clowns donning latex gloves….
How tall are you? At my prime I was exactly 6 feet tall. But it’s all been downhill since and now I’m only about 4′ 2″. Did you ever see The Incredible Shrinking Man? That, I fear, will be my fate.
What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? This is always a difficult question, to single out one moment from the past week. but I can certainly tell you what I am looking forward to in the week coming up. January 20, when Trump is finally sworn in as president and we stop looking towards the future with anxiety and fear. The future is now, folks. Anxiety and fear have been my constant companions since he won the election. Remember what I said above that I am afraid of clowns? I rest my case.
