Q & A

In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to real magic?  … The closest thing to real magic could be when you are reading and you get so engrossed in the story you feel you are right there with them, whether it be fiction or non-fiction. Seems you travel with your mind to anywhere you think about – just like magic! This works when listening to songs, too, as you remember exactly where you were and what your were doing when you hear an old song.

Where is the worst smelling place you’ve been?  … This is a funny question, and I never really thought much about it. Sure there are lots of bad smells, such a our trash when it needs to be taken out, or when the bad smell of the livestock pens waft over the area, but a certain place? Well, I don’t know that this is the worst, but we used to have a video store we’d go to to rent movies. That place always smelled like B O!

What are some things that you’ve heard in your own life, which sounded like compliments but were actually insults? … Can’t really think of anything.

What incredibly common thing have you never done? … Probably anything to do with a sport. I can’t say I ‘never’ did them, because I was probably made to do them in gym class back in school, but I hated every one of them.

It’s time again for the SYW questions from Melanie, and answers from me! To join in, just click the above link. It’s fun! Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?  … No, never, but one time we’d been seated at this restaurant (a whole group of us), and had been given menus. When we saw the prices on the food, we all decided we couldn’t afford any of it, so didn’t order anything and got up and left.

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)? … Nope, not that I can remember. But one time there was this little old man who sideswiped my car. I got out, he got out and he started hollering at me that it was my fault (I was stopped at a light – he ran into me). I told him so, and if he didn’t back off I’d call the law on him. I got back in my car and took off and he was chasing me down the road. I finally pulled in at a beer store and called home. The guy didn’t follow me any more. Now this was a little old white haired man of probably my father or grandfather’s generation.

(Oldie which has been asked many times before)   Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers?   Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?  … Yes, I’ve found money laying on the street and kept it. A few times this has happened with no one else around, and no way to know who it belonged to – just cash – no wallet. The most was $50.

What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted?   If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret!   🙂 … I stole some tiny toys from a store when I was a kid. – it was some kind of little doll. I pocketed a cheap necklace once, too. That’s all I remember.

How comfortable are you speaking in front of large groups of people?  … I would never have a reason to speak in front of a group, but it wouldn’t bother me at all. However, back in the day I know I’d be petrified!

What would be the best thing you could reasonably expect to find in a cave? … I would expect to find beautiful rock and limestone formations. I’ve seen some before and all you can say is ‘wow’!

What did you think was going to be amazing but turned out to be horrible? The one that comes to mind at the moment is the enchilada dinner I made years ago for my future son-in-law and daughter. The enchiladas exploded!

What’s the silliest thing you’ve observed someone get upset about? … There’s probably a lot of irritating and silly things we get upset about, but at the time we don’t think they are. Mostly it would be me having a hissy fit about whatever – like a fly buzzing around incessantly – drives me up the wall every time. I holler and yell and flap my arms and hands and flick paper or towels at the danged fly and I can’t make it stop or catch it. 🙂

The Q & A

Is it ever okay to commit a crime?  Please explain. … I’m thinking no, it’s never okay to commit a crime, but there are degrees of kinds of crimes. It would depend on what a situation was in the moment. Also, if you don’t get seen or caught doing a crime, is it one? Most would say yes, and surely your guilty conscious would say it was a crime you committed.

Do you deal with change well?  (not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did any how.  O_o  ) … No, I don’t deal with change very well. I like my routines, and get out of whack when something comes along to interfere with them.

Do you like birds?   The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food?   … I love birds. I like hearing them, watching them, taking pictures of them, and feeding them at the bird feeder.

What’s the least used item of clothing you own?  … Are shoes considered clothing in this case? I don’t like shoes much. I have some stuck back in the closet that I’ve worn maybe a time or two, but I only wear two different pairs ever.
