The above photo has nothing to do with this post except that it was taken last week and is part of my world that I am sharing with you. OK? So, Cee of Cee’s Share Your World challenge wrote: “For the next three weeks the questions are from kids. The Happy Quitter wrote me this weekend and told me about her workshop she does for neighborhood kids and the some of the kids had some suggestions for the Share your World challenge. I realize there are more than 4 questions so feel free to answer all or only 4 questions.”
A class you wish you would have taken? I wish I would have taken a class on Class. You know? How to treat everyone as an equal. No matter color of skin nor accent, religion, sexual identity, weight or any of the rest of the sub-genres that we use to cast people as somehow lesser than ourselves.
What’s your favorite comic figure and why? Well, at first I was thinking comic book figure, but that’s not what this question seems to be asking. So there are only two comic figures, either of which I would like to be. One is Steven Wright, who deals in non-sequiturs and weird word play, Or Paula Poundstone, who can find humor in the strangest of places.
Name something you wish you could like. I wish I could like the Chihuahua that we have been pet sitting for almost two years now. It might be only one year but it seems like two. It’s a long story but it’s owner does not have a stable residence at the moment and has been traveling all this time. When we inherited her, the dog was already spoiled and needy. Even more so than me!
Tell me about your first crush / first date / first kiss. How is it that I can not remember my first date or first kiss but can remember my first crush? She was a blond goddess. Scandinavian. With long golden hair than would catch the sunlight and blind me with its reflection. She was 4 years old. I was 6.
Who was your best friend when you were 10? My best friend when I was 10 would have been me. I was my own best friend. We had a tendency to move around a lot and, when I was ten we had just moved to a new neighborhood where there were very few kids around my age. Actually. there were very few kids, period.
What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology? I am a caution sign. I believe in astronomy!
- Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week, we had to take two separate cars to the airport at 10:30 at night to pick up 4 family members who all came to visit at the same time. The week coming up? I’m looking forward to another weeknight 10 pm trip to the airport to send these people home!
