I'm having a blessed day

I know because my favorite homeless gentleman told me so when I dropped some coins in his cardboard coffee cup. He's back on his plastic milk crate outside McDonald's. To say he looks fine is an overstatement, because he seems to be in fragile health. But he looks the same and he's back, trying to be upbeat and positive, wishing everyone well ... even the people who go out of their way NOT to make eye contact with him because they're embarrassed. I hope God blesses him, too.


… once again from Kwizgiver.


that makes you smile: my cats

that makes you cry: movies -- the first one that comes to mind is Brian's Song. ("I love Brian Piccolo, and I'd like all of you to love him too. And tonight, when you hit your knees, please ask God to love him.")

that you love to do on the weekends: go out for breakfast

that you do for only yourself: soak in the tub

that you have in your underwear drawer that's NOT underwear: ... sorry, but there isn't anything

that you do before going to sleep: reflect on how much I love Jon Hamm (Oh, to receive the "full Don Draper treatment!")

that you do within the first 15 minutes after waking: check on the cats

that's in your purse: hairbrush

that you actually LIKE to clean: the filters on my air cleaners. I'm fascinated to see all the stuff it saved me from inhaling.

that you DETEST cleaning: anything else.

that other people would find odd about you: is that I don't drive.

that you would buy if I handed you a $100 bill: the next round

that you feel you HAVE to do before you die: organize my condo!

If you play along, let me know so I can compare my answers with yours.
