The Questions:

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery or came into a huge fortune? 

Which decade do you think had the best sense of style?

Would you rather be half your height or double your weight?

If you wanted to get away from everyone totally, where would you hide?


 

What do you do that you love? 

***

My Answers:

  • Pay off all bills of ours and our daughters & their families, buy stuff I wanted or needed.
  • The hippie eras of the 60s and 70s, because that was my favorite.
  • Half my height, which would be strange.
  • In a haunted house, because that would be fun, and everyone else would be scared to be in there.
  • My usual things I do already, of writing, reading, creating art, and listening to music.

High School Questions & Answers 

***

Here are some fun questions I saw from a friend on FB. I thought it would be fun to answer them here. If you’d like to answer them, too, feel free, and I’d enjoy reading your answers. 🙂

***

***

Think about your SENIOR year in High School. The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be!

I graduated high school in 1969 from Estacado High School. Our logo/teams was the Matadors. Our school colors were blue and silver.

I went for two years here (first high school year was at Lubbock H.S).

Estacado was a brand new school, and all students got to vote on what the teams, colors, song, rings, were to be.

~

1. Did you know your current significant other?

Yes, and later that year we got married. It will be 50 years for us come December.

2. Make and year of car?

I think it was a 1964, four door Ford Falcon, with a stick shift on the steering column. I put a couple of large yellow flower power stickers on the sides (to make it cool looking – haha)


3. What kind of job?

Part time office work for a manufacturing plant, of chicken and hog watering systems.


4. Where did you live?

At home with my parents & sister, and it’s the same city we live in now.


5. Were you popular?

Not especially, but I had a few friends, and we’d hang out together.


6. Were you in choir?

No, I was in orchestra, and played the violin


7. Ever get suspended from school?

No


8. If you could, would you go back?

No


9. Still talk to the person that you went to prom with?

Yes, we got married.


10. Did you skip school?

No


11. Go to all the football games?

I went to quite a few of the games, but not all.


12. Favorite subject?

English


13. Do you still have your yearbooks?

Yes


14. Did you follow the career path you planned?

I didn’t really have one…just office work, which I did for a few years.


15. Did you have a class ring?

Yes, I still have it. It’s silver with a clear blue stone, and embedded in the stone is the letter E (for Estacado High School)


16. Still close with your best friend?

Yes, but she lives in another town. We email and phone text, and she will be here next month.


17. Who was your favorite teacher?

Maybe Mrs. Parks? She was our office education teacher, where we learned shorthand, typing, and office procedures.


18. What was your style?

Style? Skirts, dresses, and penny loafers. Girls back then weren’t allowed to wear jeans to school (the year after I graduated, they were)


19. Favorite shoes?

Penny Loafers


21. Favorite music?

Rock music of all kinds


22. High school Hair?

Same as now, except I’d dyed it red…or black…I kept going back and forth with the color


23. What kind of cologne/perfume?

Ambush by Dana. I wore this all the time and wish I could still find it.


24. How old when graduated?

18


25. Did you play a sport?

No, never, and I hated gym or PE classes

The original post of these questions I believe were from Teresa, and her link is:

https://thehauntedwordsmith.wordpress.com/2019/01/03/queen-of-questions-2019-3/

***

Here are the questions:

 

  1. What is your favorite chocolate dessert?
  2. Where do you go first in the grocery store?
  3. You win three minutes of free shopping in the grocery store with an empty cart…what do you fill it with?
  4. What is your favorite fruit and how do you like to eat it?
  5. You go to a magic cafe where plates fill with whatever you request…what do you get?
  6. How do you like your fish?
  7. Do you eat jello (what is your favorite flavor)?
  8. What is the most, ahem, “adult” food you can think of?
  9. What food do you eat that might put you in the “old” age category?
  10. Mall food courts…yes, no, where do you eat?

Here are my answers:

1. My favorite chocolate dessert is anything made of chocolate…candy, pies, cakes, cookies – you know…Kit Kats, chocolate pie with meringue, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, and chocolate chip cookies.

2. We go to the left, when we go to the grocery store, past the bakery (where we don’t buy anything), and since I’m following the mister around, it’s the beer aisle first, then milk & eggs, and on around the store.

3. Three minutes of free shopping…I’d get all kinds of meats (they can be frozen), coffee & tea, canned goods, and cat food. Three minutes isn’t very long!

4. My favorite fruit is bananas. I peel it of course, then slice lengthwise all around, leaving the seeds behind (can’t eat seeds).

5. A magic cafe, huh? I’d get Mexican food, like tacos, enchiladas, re-fried beans, rice, guacamole, hot salsa and queso & tortilla chips.

6. How do I like my fish? Non existent …I don’t like fish, dead or alive. I occasionally will have blackened catfish though, because all the spices takes away the taste of the fish, but still can’t handle much of it, because ….fish…ugh!

7. I hardly ever eat jello, but I like lime, or orange

8. Adult type food? Steak?

9. Old age food? I guess anything bland and easy to chew.

10. Our mall food court is a joke…terrible, and I’d never eat anything from there. And, we never go to the mall, anyway.
