Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
Since I am rarely in a hurry I don’t care if the elevator is slow, or even if it goes in the wrong direction because I got on the wrong one and someone else pushed the buttons first. Not that that has ever happened to me of course. Another thing that might not have happened is me arriving so early for an appointment that the receptionist told me to go have a coffee and come back in 45 minutes. Because it was too early to check in. Who knew that was even a thing.
So the answer to both these questions is no. Elevators don’t have speed choices no matter what magical number of button pushes you try. But if it makes you feel better and less panicky, go for it.
Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneously (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)
You don’t normally get places 45 minutes ahead of time without meticulous planning for every conceivable disastrous circumstance that might come up. It’s annoying sometimes when absolutely nothing goes wrong after so much anticipation. Spontaneity is scary. Always have a plan. And six back ups.
Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.
Loving and Kind. Tolerant and Accepting. Grateful and Generous. Well those are all things I aspire to anyway. A work in progress.
If you had a choice which would be your preference – salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?
Okay, so that’s salt water, fresh water, water under a boat, hot water, frozen water, and no water at all. But there’s a beach! I’ll take the beach. And probably stay out of the water altogether.
Instead of the Optional Bonus Question, here are some random questions from previous world sharing weeks. I missed them. Spending too much time in elevators perhaps.
Which are better: black or green olives?
I love black olives on pizza and green olives in egg salad. I don’t believe they should compete against each other trying to prove which one is better. Which is just a fancy way of saying I can’t decide.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
No. I don’t know where they’ve been. And many of them are charcoal. That would not end well.
Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
I used to love it when we were little and our dad would tuck us in. But the minute he left the room I would get myself completely untucked because it felt awful to be constrained, even if it was only by blankets. I like my arms and my feet out. I hate zipped up sleeping bags. I do not tuck in anything including children. I live in constant escape mode.
Have you stolen a street sign before?
No, but I was in possession of a stop sign once. It was left behind in the closet of the bedroom I used where I boarded while going to university. In black marker I wrote “I’ll Never” at the top of the sign and “Loving You” at the bottom. With STOP in the middle. I thought I was being ridiculously clever and funny until I tried to give it to W. as a gift. He was appalled and freaked out because did I not know that stealing street signs was ILLEGAL??? Such a romantic, completely missing the point. I don’t know what became of that altered sign or where it ended up, but I do remember putting it back in the closet and waiting for the police to arrive.
Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
Yes. When they expire I put them in the paper recycle bin. That’s sort of like using them I guess.
Do you have freckles?
Yes I do. I think I was born with them. They are everywhere. And now I have age spots on top of them. In another life I was a Dalmatian.
Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?
HAHA! I don’t know what that means. I can find things. Isn’t that all that really matters?
Thank you to everyone who has followed and visited my blog in the past month or so even though I’ve raised some suspicion as to whether or not I have been in a coma or out of the country or tied up and gagged. Or unable to get my sheets untucked. I will try to do better. But you know me, I always say that.
Doesn’t make it any less true.
It’s the news people. I’m blaming the news. I read it and then I can’t even.
Have a great Thursday. Clean up your damned fridge.
