Sunday Stealing

Ask, ask, ASK--part 2

26 - Did you have an accident last year? No. I've had health problems and money problems during 2016, but no accidents. (Knock wood.)

 27 - Do you have any famous relatives? No.

 28 - Did you ever had a kiss under the moonlight? Yes. Memorably beside the Schuylkill River in Philly.

 29 - Have you ever been jealous? Oh, yes.

 30 - How can you prove your love to someone?
Access. I try to be available for people I love.

 31 - What are you thinking right now?
That my left eye is particularly itchy this evening. (Sorry it's not a more thrilling answer.)

 32 - Have you ever sacrificed something important to you for someone you love?
Yes. Toward the end of my mother's life, I let things go that were very, very important to me. But I made the decision that we weren't going to argue, that she was going to leave this world with a little less stres and tension if I could help it.

 33 - Can you live without internet?
Not happily.

 34 - Have you been so emotional that you can’t find words to explain how you feel?
I'm a Cub fan! How to describe the glory of Game 7?

 35 - Did you ever badmouth someone?
Too often. I try to be sweet like Melanie Hamilton, but my tart tongued, less than charitable Scarlett side comes out an awful lot.

 36 - What do you prefer, jeans or skirt?

 37 - Do you have trust issues?
Good goobies, yes! My erstwhile shrink once told me my root problem was a fear of genuine intimacy. And she was right. People I've never met who read this blog probably know me better than those I spend time with in real life.

 38 - What's something that you made all on your own and are incredibly proud of?
My career. I'm a junior college drop out, and yet I work at a major advertising agency on the account of a Fortune 500 Company.

 39 - Who’s the person who first comes to your mind when someone mentions “love”?
Wow. The first answer that popped into my head surprised me. I think I'm gonna keep it to myself but stew on it awhile.

 40 - Who was the last person you hugged?
A coworker. Her exhusband's aunt died. She cared about the older woman very much, but the divorce situation complicated mourning.

 41 - Do you believe in the phrase “If it’s meant to be, it will be”?
In romance, yes. In work, no.

 42 - Do people praise you for your looks?
I get, "I can't believe you're that old!" a lot. Which is good, I guess.

 43 - Do you believe in destiny?
See #41.

 44 - Have you ever thought “I already found my soulmate”?
In the heat of the moment. Unfortunately, the moment always cooled.

 45 - Do you like nicknames that are from your name?
No. It's the one reason I wished I'd married.

 46 - Could you ever be a vegan?

 47 - Do you currently have bruises on your body?
I always do. I'm a klutz.

 48 - What should you be doing right now?

 49 - I read in a magazine that shoulder pads are coming back. Are you happy to hear this or do you not find them to be very attractive?
It would make me happy because broader shoulders would balance out my too-broad hips.

 50 - Did you ever feel like you’re not good enough?
Only on days that end in "y."


  1. I love your answer to #35.

  2. I wonder if anyone thinks they are "good enough," and then I guess I wonder about them if they actually thought that much of themselves. I hope your intriguing thought on the "love" question that you didn't answer and are stewing over leads you somewhere unexpected.

  3. I let a lot of things go when my dad was battling cancer...a dream job because he thought I should be home with my son, a beloved pet because he was worried about it and the new baby...all just seemed easier to let him have his way for the time he had left. :/

  4. Yes, it's a compliment. And it's nice that it's true.

    Loved your answers. And may the glow from the Cubs' World series be always with you.

  5. Shoulder pads do kind of help balance me out, but I don't know I'm ready for their come back.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
