I’ve Been Tagged – 11 Essential Questions

My thanks to H.R.R. Gorman for these choice queries into my life!

 

  1. What’s the most recent book you’ve read, and did you like it?

Surprisingly, this is difficult to answer! I usually read 2-3 books a week, but lately the offerings have been disappointing. Implausible plots, dark characters, and foul language seem to be common fare, and I end up deleting many books from my tablet within the first chapter. At the moment, I am reading “Rewind” by Rowan Shaw.

  1. How long do indoor plants stay alive in your abode?

I got rid of my plants during the last move and have not yet replaced them. I tend to fuss over the greenery and I had a spider plant which did so well it kept outgrowing its pot!

  1. How long does your laundry wait until it is folded?

Normally, five minutes or less. As a necessary evil, I like to get it done and put away so I can move on to more enjoyable tasks.

  1. A masked madman puts a gun to your head and says, “You are going to time-travel to a year prior to 1900 and live there for the rest of your life, or I will shoot you. You can choose the year and country of residence.” When/where do you travel to, or do you just let this mysterious person shoot you?

I find this question both intriguing and disturbing! I have no desire to live out the rest of my life in another time or place, so go ahead and shoot me. (There’s a book plot in there somewhere…)

  1. Do you have pets?

Not at present. I’ve had cats, dogs, parakeets, and gerbils, but have been pet-free for a long time (too many moves). Some day, I would enjoy adopting a small dog to keep me company.

  1. What is your favorite thing to cook?

Chicken vegetable soup. It’s delicious, nutritious, and saves me a boat load of money and time. What’s not to like?

  1. Off the top of your head, what book would you recommend right now?

“If I Live To Be 100” by Neenah Ellis. It’s on the top of my “to be read” list, and comes highly recommended.

  1. Should toothpaste be squeezed from the bottom, middle, or top for maximum comfort? Do you follow your own advice?

Any reasonably sane adult will squeeze from the bottom, and, yes, I follow my own advice! This question should always be included in pre-marital counseling sessions.

  1. What are your opinions on breakfast?

I’m a fan. Simple is best and I rarely skip it. Blueberry waffles with real maple syrup are a favorite, but I hardly ever indulge.

  1. What is your optimal bedtime?

If I had a choice, I would stay up late and get up late. Working second shift means I usually get to bed around 1:30.

  1. Who is your favorite historical figure (must currently be dead)?

The first who comes to mind is Abraham Lincoln. I seriously need to read some good biographies, though.

    1. It’s all in the questions my friend. Try asking what swear words I use while driving or how often I vacuum the carpet! I guess I owe you one for making me look good…
