What is your favorite go to beverage? Water, coffee, tea, coke, soda (non-alcoholic)
Beverages are my favorite. I am never without a drink. It’s hard to choose one, because all beverages are fantastic. Fountain Coke. Fountain Coke from McDonald’s is the best, because the syrup is stronger and the ice is wetter. All true Coca-Cola addicts know this.
Can you change a car tire?
In theory, yes. In practice, probably not. My weak hands are no match for pneumatic tools.
Are you a listener or talker?
Depends on the audience and the subject. I enjoy listening because I enjoy learning. If you don’t listen to people, you can’t understand them. I enjoy talking, but only about things that interest me. I can talk your ear off in private, but in most social situations, I’m a listener.
Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?
No cell phone. I’m not a phone person. I think if I didn’t have a cell phone it would inconvenience other people, not so much me.
When I call people, I still use the house phone. You know why? You just pick it up and press the buttons.
Sometimes I am on my cell phone trying to do stuff, and I have to stop and think about what the hell I am doing. Literally, have to stop and think. enter passcode. mmm, quesoeverything. call los rancheros. how do i get the number for los rancheros? where’s that list of people? phone? which one is phone? oh the one with the phone icon. makes sense. contacts…where are the–? oh. there. lo. no not lola, not lori. ah, okies, push the los rancheros, push the phone button. look at the phone. is it dialing? do i need to push the green button? oh! it’s goin!
You have no idea how many times I dial from the cell phone and forget to push the green button and then declare, “Phone’s not workin!” Sometimes I am on my phone while looking for my phone.
I never know where my phone is. I often call my phone. I am not one of those people who’s always looking at her phone.
My phone sits around with 5 apps open and a fast-draining battery.
When my whole family’s home, I ignore my phone. People hate that.
My cell phone may as well be a husband text machine and a camera with Instagram capability.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful our kids have the opportunities and teachers they do. It makes me even more grateful we moved home. I’m grateful my husband helped in the yard, I’m grateful for Mr Blue Sky, and I’m grateful for my health, about which I keep knocking wood.
Also, friends of ours picked up this honeycomb for me in New Harmony. It is the most delicious honeycomb I’ve ever eaten in my adult life. As its crystalline sugary goodness dissolves, I am transported to my childhood. Oh Sweet Nosh, how I love you!
