My answers:

  1.  I have so much trouble opening packages. Those that are supposed to be easy, like food products, and have those perforated places to punch in…they never work for me. I usually have to take a knife and stab the cardboard to get into the box. I don’t know why they make them so hard to get into.
  2. I listen to all the oldie music from the 60s and 70s mostly. Well, I like all kinds of music, even some older ones and newer ones, but I do remember these best, and can sing along.3
  3. Prankster or darer? Not really either one. I probably wouldn’t take on a dare, or dare anyone else to do something.
  4. A wild prank I played? It wasn’t all that wild, but my cousin and I (when we were young and being silly) would call random people on the phone. We’d pick some number from the phone book, call them up, and have conversations with whoever answered, and would be willing to play along. Quite a few would. I guess they figured it was just kids having a laugh. This one time a lady answered, and she told us all about her little poodle dog named Pierre. We talked for awhile about this and that, and we wound up inviting ourselves to have supper with her…and she agreed! Then, we hung up. What’s weird is that we had an old reel to reel tape recorder, and we recorded all our conversations with people! It was fun to play them back.
  5. Weirdest band…just hearing some weird music, or seeing a band perform live? All the bands I’ve seen in concert, I wouldn’t call weird…we were grooving to the music. Here’s a pretty strange performer…and I like it! It’s Tiny Tim singing “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”     https://youtu.be/zcSlcNfThUA
  6. I don’t remember any dares I took on.
  7. One of the weirdest books I ‘tried’ to read was, “House of Leaves”. I tried several times, but couldn’t make heads or tails out of the story. Such a very weird book, the way it was put together. Someday maybe I’ll try again. Here’ the link to read about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Leaves
  8. The weirdest meal I ever ate was one my daughter made. She was just learning to cook, and wanted to do it all by herself. I wasn’t allowed in the kitchen, but could holler out help tips to her. When it was done, I was presented with this…macaroni, a bunch of other stuff I can’t remember, and it had bubble gum in there, too. All heated up nice and hot. Yum! We ate it, too. 🙂
  9. A weird fashion craze I wore? I’d think it was back in Jr. High school, and bell bottom pants were just coming into style. I actually became the talk of the school, as I was the first to wear them (but not at school – just hanging around with friends, as girls weren’t allowed to wear long pants to school yet) but all my friends loved them and wanted some, too. About the same time, I had my hair cut in the Beatle’s hair style. It was all about being ‘mod’ back then.
  10. Made up words I said I created? Could have been the ‘op-language’. Actually, my sister told me about it, and I still have the little instruction note she wrote out for me. Later on, I found out it was a popular and fun way to talk, that had been known for quite some time, in lots of places…not just us. Can’t remember exactly how it goes (you can google it), but my name in ‘OP’ is Bop-a-rop-bop-a-rop-a. And this is funny too, because my grand-daughter calls me Bop. She came up with that all on her own when she was just learning to talk.
  11. I think I’ve heard of a kid’s card game called ‘Snap’, but I’ve never played it.
  12. Yes, I’ve gotten pretty lost before. I’m really bad at directions, anyway, but I got lost in the fog one time. It was on a road I used every single day, too. I could barely see where I was going, and could see no street signs, or exits. That was scary!
  13. Favorite piece of clothing? Well, my bell bottom pants were a favorite, I still wear a modified version of them. Also, being a military family, I had access to the PX or BX on bases, and could buy actual Navy bell bottom pants. …I also had a denim shirt I loved, and hated when it wore out. I’d embroidered all kinds of things on there, like peace signs, flowers, and all the likenesses of my dogs.
  14. Strange family traditions? Can’t think of any at the moment.
  15. Have I taken part in any weird adventure? Probably. Yeah, all my ghost hunting adventures are pretty weird.
  16. Don’t really understand this question…getting told off for? Getting in trouble for? huh…I was a good kid, and didn’t get into trouble.
  17. Worst haircut I ever had, was when I had really long hair, and went in for a ‘trim’…just a little cut off the ends…and it ended up being about an inch long all over. I don’t know what the heck happened, but I cried, and stormed out of there, and went and bought a long wig to wear until my hair grew back.
  18. Worst teacher? I don’t remember any of my teachers being mean or bad at teaching.
  19. A crazy relative? I’d imagine that would be myself. I’ve kind of always been weird, and done things different.
  20. No, I’m not deleting any questions.
  21. A completely safe animal that I’m totally afraid of…that would be fish, any fish, all fish!

And…that’s all the questions! Whew, that took awhile. Hope you enjoyed reading my answers! 🙂

Have fun, if you want to answer them, too!

  1. I HATE packages that are designed to be opened by aerospace engineers. There is one kind of orange juice I refuse to buy, even when it’s on sale, because I can’t open the container at all!

    • Aerospace engineers! That’s the truth! I don’t blame you for not buying something you just can’t get into. It’s ridiculous how difficult some of these packages are. 🙂

      • Will you allow me to share it [your answers] Weena with my readership? 🙂

        I can imagine, l used to seriously hate macaroni, until someone made it differently to my Mother’s and after 30 odd years, l fell in love with it again. It is astonishing at times what the little extras can do to you 🙂

      • Oh, sure…go ahead!
        The best kind of mac & cheese is home made, but we just buy the easy to fix ones, and there’s a big difference in brands and how they taste, too. 🙂

  2. I have the *exact same struggles* with those easy open packages. Sheesh! I have to use box cutters on the things encased in plastic and I can’t punch out those perforated sections either! So so aggravating.

    • Easy open – yeah, right! I really don’t like those impossible to open hard plastic packages. Even scissors won’t cut through it. Must think their product is made of gold or something. Then, if you do get it a little bit open, you have to be careful or you’ll slice your fingers on the sharp edges. No thanks! 😉

  3. I used to love bell-bottoms too, but they were just going out of style when I hit teenage years. then it was “flair” jeans. But I loved bell bottoms. ^_^ I also have trouble with the perforated packages and use a paring knife to get them open. or just rip them from the top where they’re glued together. I don’t care, so long as they open. 🙂

    • It was getting so hard to find bell-bottom pants there for awhile. I think they have some sort of like them now, but mostly, as you say, the flare legs ones. I just wear the stretchy yoga type pants now, and they are flared out a bit, so I’m okay with them.
      Hard to open packages…ugh! Something else I have a problem with is bottles of water. It’s hard to twist open the cap. I think I have a callous from the little gripper ridges on those things. If I remember, I use a towel or something to open them. 🙂

  4. Whenever I encounter a package that takes a team to open, I wonder to myself…”Why are they packaging this in this way? Is it detrimental to life as we know it? Are they training to package plutonium or something?” I really hate those rigid plastic containers that one has to buy if one is buying anything electronic (a cord, a disc, almost anything), so I’m with you!

    • Exactly, Melanie! Maybe it’s to keep people from stealing something from a package at the store, but sheesh…you can’t get into it when you buy it and get it home! You know they have those electronic tag removal tools at the check-out, so why not have a plastic opening tool that they could offer to do when you buy something encased in that awful stuff! haha – plutonium…you never know! 🙂

  5. Easy open packages for #1, indeed. I have stupid weak hands and they’re not getting better with age, and every one of those things is cause to grab a knife. Ugh.
    Bop is a really cute name for grandma, and that’s funny how it relates to your op game 🙂
    I can’t believe the haircut. So sorry you experienced that. I can only imagine how mortified you were.

    • Thanks, Joey!
      I like being called Bop! Once when we were at a store, she couldn’t find me and she asked the clerk if she’d seen Bop. She described me as tall with black hair. Pretty good, and I guess to her I’m tall (5″4) haha.
      That hair cut was horrible! I don’t know why I wasn’t paying attention to what they were doing at the time. Never again!
