Sunday Stealing


1. Do you tend to have a guilty conscious? Right now, yes. I restricted the access of my friend, Kathy, to my Facebook profile. Kathy is losing her cognitive abilities and as her world gets smaller, she spends more and more time on Facebook. But she seldom knows what she's doing or what she's talking about. I'm always hiding and deleting her more confused comments to save her embarrassment. Then there's the Messenger issue. She claims to HATE Messenger, but she uses it all the time. If I don't acknowledge her Messenger messages, she emails and texts me to complain I'm ignoring her. If I do answer, she scolds me because I know she HATES Messenger. When I try to explain this to her, she gets angry at me. This week she sent me -- via Messenger, which she insists she doesn't use -- a long complaint about someone named Hartman who, like me, keeps trying to get her to use Messenger, and I restricted her. I don't know any Hartman, I don't give a fuck if she uses Messenger or not, and I just want her to leave me alone. Now I feel guilty. I feel like I should have more compassion for her. But she has approximately 500 Facebook friends. Let her scold, confound and hassle them for a while.

2. Do you still have your wisdom teeth? I have one left. Upper right. It's poking through right now. I suppose at some point in 2024, it's going to have to go.

3. Peanut Butter - creamy or crunchy? Depends on my mood.

4. Get up off your butt. Take 5 steps. Which leg did you start out on? Right.

5. What color is your favorite kitchen utensil? I guess it's nickel plated. It's my ancient, ever-reliable manual can opener. It's at least 25 years old. I love how durable it is.
My old friend looks just like this, but more beat up

6. Did you watch the Michael Jackson memorial/funeral? I guess so. I don't remember. I wasn't a fan.

7. Do you know anyone who graduated from high school this year? Were you invited to their graduation party? Did you go? No graduates this year.

8. White with black stripes or black with white stripes? I don't wear a lot of stripes.

9. If we were to call your 6th grade teacher, what would they say about you? She's dead, so good luck with that.

10. Can you draw a perfect circle? No.

11. What was your favorite scratch & sniff sticker scent? I'm sorry but I don't really have one.

12. How many light switches and electrical outlets are in the room that you are in right now? One switch, four outlets.

13. Do you know sign language? I learned the alphabet for a Girl Scout badge and still remember it.

14. Do you step on cracks in the sidewalk? Not intentionally.

15. And the sheets on your bed look like....? White with small blue flowers.
