Sunday Stealing

From the Queen of Memes

1. What do men really want in a woman? I suspect every man wants something different.

2. Should marijuana be legalized? Hasn't it been?

3. Why did the cow jump over the moon? To get away from the cat and her infernal fiddle playing.

4. What do women really want in a man? I suspect every woman wants something different.

5. When you are having a really good day, what usually makes it good? Mary Richards. She is known for being able to take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.

6. What can make your good day turn into a bad day? Friction and drama.

7. If you could "start from scratch" and turn back the clock for a re-do, what would you re-do? I'd go back about five years. My condo was in decent shape then. But I've neglected it and now my list of things to do is daunting. I wish I could go back, knowing what I know now, and then I'd be smarter and keep up with it.

8. Do you make a list when you go grocery shopping? Yes. And then I ignore it.

9. Do you buy more groceries when you're hungry? I don't think so.

10. Coupons. Use 'em? Not as much as I should!

11. Have you ever complained to the manager of your grocery store? No. I argued with a Walgreens store manager once, but he started it. It had to do with the checkout line. I don't recall the particulars, but he didn't like how I (and several other customers) had queued up. I was sick of him scolding us, so I handed him my basket of unpurchased items and said, "You're the manager, manage!" and I left. I remember this clearly because it's really not like me. I always try to be patient with employees who face the public, since I believe that usually the person whose job it is to deal with me is likely not the one who made the decision that pissed me off. However, in this case, he was the manager. This mess was on him.

12. Do you like to buy groceries at huge chain stores like WalMart? Or do you shop exclusively at food stores? I do most of my grocery shopping at Target. Once a month, I order from the independent grocery store on the other side of town. They're inconvenient and bit more expensive, but they do so much for the community that I try to support them when I can.

13. What do you typically have for lunch? It changes every day.

14. If you work outside your home, do you pack your lunch? I don't, but when I did, I didn't.

15. Tell us about your last lunch date and what made it special. Yesterday I had lunch with Nancy and her husband, Paul. It was emotional. All three of us are going through something. I'm adjusting to this new phase in my life. Nancy is Jewish and during this holiday season with anti-Semitism on the rise, feeling very much like an unwelcome minority in her own country. Paul is worried about his daughter, who announced she just left her husband (again). It was like a group therapy session with carrot cake. I hope we all felt better when we got home. I did, but I was also exhausted.
