some fun questions...


 these are the questions from Sunday Stealing this week. I decided to only answer the ones that mean something to me...feel free to answer them too. Wouldn't it be fun to answer them around a dinner table together?

1. Have Your Ever Driven Drunk Or Even Slightly Buzzed? no
2. What Was The Funniest Moment In Your Life?
3. What Kind Of Things Really Makes You Laugh?
4. If You Could Jump Into A Pool Full Of Something, What Would It Be? ick

5. Which Habit Are You Proudest Of Breaking?

thumb sucking as a child... it was soothing and I didn't sleep well while trying to stop

6. Which Animal Do You Find The Sexiest Of All?

7. What’s The Weirdest Nickname You’ve Ever Had?

" legs" not because of  pretty legs although I do have dancer's legs, but from a field trip on a train from Florida to Washington DC with the band to march in the cherry blossom parade. Our seats faced each other and I kicked the others because they teased me. 

8, What Do You Wish You Were Really Good At?

foreign languages

9. If You Were A Dog, What Kind Of Dog Would You Be?

I'd say a labrador retriever... wanna play? or eat? I do I do!

10. What’s The Most Spontaneous Thing You’ve Ever Done?

When we reached our destination of Yellowstone park it was dark, rainy and the power was out all around. A group gathered at the only store, for something to eat that night. Two guys on massive motorcycles and my friend and I began chatting. After a while we talked of their cross country bike ride and one offered to take me for a ride. I sized him up, trusted him and got on. It was the scariest thing, probably the stupidest thing in the world but he was lovely and I would never have done that in other circumstances, and he brought me right back. 

11. If You Had A Time Machine, Would You Go Back In Time Or Visit The Future?

back, I want so much to feel what life was like in the past

12. What Was The Last Show You Binge-Watched?

we're watching Book Club on BBC now... zany characters

13. If You Had To Rename Yourself, What Name Would You Choose?
14. What Did You Do During The Summers When You Were Growing Up?

I remember playing outside a lot, bikes, skating, skateboarding, painting while sitting on a blanket on the grass, making up games with friends. When older I visiting my grown sister's family for a month wherever they were living. I watched a lot of tv, read a lot, and sometimes took classes in art. I got to stay up late, the best part. We often went on vacation from Florida to North Carolina's mountains and I rolled down hills, picked wild blackberries, hiked, and played outside in the creek. 

15. If You Go To A Restaurant And Have Terrible Service, Is It Ever OK Not To Tip?

I don't know if it's okay, but I have done. I left 50 cents once from rude poor service. The waitress showed the first energy we'd seen as she chased us out in the parking lot and threw it at us. She was bad and rude all night. I think if she was just bad service we might have left minimum percent. That was when I was very young adult, now I would call the manager over instead.

Here is the link to other people's answers



  1. Wow, she chased you into the parking lot! That's something. Sounds like we had similar childhoods, except for the vacationing part. We generally only went to Myrtle Beach for a week.

  2. Those were good answers. I remember playing outside when it was dark and street lights weren't around yet so it was really dark.

  3. I once left a 50¢ tip, too! It was in Key West and very hot. I asked her to refill my water glass. She pointed at my friend Henry and said, "Drink his. He hasn't touched it." I blurted, "He has hepatitis." It was the first disease that came to mind. She rolled her eyes at me but did, eventually, return with the pitcher. Isn't it funny how we remember the bad servers so vividly? I'm sure I've had dozens of good experiences vs. the bad.

  4. Oh my goodness! #10 made me think of a time I was at a bar in college and somehow I got left behind at the bar. Some guys took me and seems like a friend also home and they were from this town we were in. I lived probably a half hour away. That was stupid of me, but I didn't know what to do. They dropped us off and went back home. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

  5. Fun answers - childhood days were so much fun. Your spontaneous motorcycle ride was very daring, but sometimes you get a good sense of people and go with it. I once hitchhiked with my girlfriend. I cringe to think what could have happened...I was a waitress for a few years and can't imagine being so rude, although I did have plenty of rude customers. One guy kept whistling for me like a dog. I did call him out on it and he was very nice to me after that. I hope he treated other servers better after that. I think black labs are the best dogs - so loving and sweet. Hope you have a good week ahead! x K

  6. Hmm - the most spontaneous thing I’ve done was to forge my mother’s signature on my application to be a foreign exchange student. I was definitely NOT a rule breaker but wanted so badly to be an exchange student. I was accepted, and then had to convince her to let me go.

  7. #8 - Totally agree. I wish I was good at forein languages too.




  8. Always such interesting questions.

  9. #8. REMEMBERING THINGS. Like whatever it was I just read, or the lecture the teacher gave. Or, what the preacher just said... or how to use a formula in math!
