1. What is a shoe horn?  … I’m tempted to say it’s a coastal bird, but really it’s a tiny device hidden inside fuzzy house slippers that makes a beeping noise when you walk.

2. Where will you find a grommet? … The only grommet I know is from a cartoon movie. I think he was a dog.

3. We may say ‘the tables have turned’, but what is a turntable? … A kitchen table that revolves like a lazy-susan.

4. How do you make a tea cosy? … A tea will get cosy if you set it by a fireplace.

5. What is a quaver? … The quaver is a ‘trick’ arrow, that when shot from the bow, it kind of wiggles back and forth to confuse the target.

6. Where will you find a plimsoll line? … Oh, the plimsoll line will always be found in a garden, as it keeps the rows straight.

7. What colour was The King’s New Clothes? … Tartan green & red for the holidays.

8. Why was Ethelred called The Unready? … It was a catchphrase used to promote the TV show, “I Love Lucy”. Even though Ethel was a blonde, and Lucy was a red-head, the producers decided to go a different way, because Ethelred never caught on as a popular name.

9. 007 has a licence to kill, but what would an 005 have a licence for? … 005 would have a license for cooking gourmet meals because he invented 5 spice powder.

10. What is a winklepicker? … I really do know what this is, but for my ‘lie’ I will say it is a make-up product used to erase wrinkles on the face.

What would you enjoy if you could do so without someone getting annoyed with you for enjoying it?  It MUST be something you aren’t supposed to enjoy because it is “bad for you”.   If I want to do something, I just do it no matter what anyone else thinks.  Ugh – I’m confused about this question and could spend all day trying to figure it out. … Okay, how about singing out loud? I can’t sing in tune at all, but I really like to and enjoy it. It would annoy most everyone, though. How is that bad for me? They would tell me to shut up I guess.

Is it okay for men to wear the color pink? … Yes, sure, why not if they like it.

Can you curl your tongue?  … Yes

What, in your opinion, is the best room to put a fireplace? … We’ve never had a fireplace and we didn’t have one when I was a kid, either. They always seem nice in pictures or movies. It would need to be in the living room or a den.

If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask? … What do you want? Want to play? Why do you eat all your food except one tiny little green pea. You always leave that one tiny bit … why?
