This is a new one for me to post on. These are questions from a site called “A Guy Named Bloke” (https://aguycalledbloke.blog/2021/01/12/the-chocolate-box/). He asks he questions, you supply the answers. Sounded like fun, so here are my answers.
Question: What was your favorite cartoon character as a kid?
Answer: Bugs Bunny, hands down. I always liked that line of his “I knew I should have taken that left turn at Albuquerque.” I’ve used it a lot.
Question: Have you ever had a crush as an adult?
Answer: Do you mean besides my wife?
Question: Night time or day time – which is best for you?
Answer: When I was still working I had to be a day person – my day started at 4AM. Now that I’m retired, I’m more of a night owl and can read until the wee hours. But my furries get me up at 7AM to eat and go potty. If I get tired during the day, there is always happy hour – nap time!
Question: Have you ever had sex in deep snow as opposed to a light frosting?
Answer: No! To me sex is an indoor sport where it’s warm.
Question: What are you three weirdest quirks?
Answer: 1) Over analyzing/planning things before making a decision. 2) Getting so interested in a project/hobby/TV show/book that I “zone out” and blank out everything else around me – including wife. 3) Building a sandwich – it has to be done in a certain way, layer by layer.
Question: Sum up your personal life in 2020 in only 7 words.
Answer: Frustrated, educational, healthy, productive, new writer connections.
Question: What’s the most embarrassing situation you’ve been in?
Answer: Checking out at the grocery store. My credit card had been hacked and the bank shut it down but I hadn’t seen the notice. I had to ask the store to hold my groceries while I ran home and got my wife’s card.
Question: What are you three favorite words? (I’m adding phrases to the question.)
Answer: 1) Jeez Louise! 2) What a maroon! (Bugs Bunny) 3) Thank you
Question: What sweet things do you like to consume for pleasure?
Answer: Chocolate covered pop corn, or chocolate covered mixed nuts.
Question: Do you currently have a favorite song, and if so, what is it?
Answer: There are songs I like in the current country music genre, but my all time favorite is “Amazing Grace” played on bagpipes. Something about it gives me chills. It is such a soulful rendition, and the reason it’s played on the pipes is to honor a first responder (as I was…) or fallen military. The reasons aren’t lost on me.
Question: Sleep attire – PJ’s, T-shirt and shorts, naked, or other. What’s your preference?
Answer: T-shirt and PJ bottoms. At my age, I’m a far cry from a naked sleeper these days. 😂
Question: What’s your favorite breakfast dish?
Answer: Scrambled eggs, and hash browns. But since I do the cooking it’s cereal with a sliced banana and a cup of coffee. Too early to fix eggs and browns.
Question: What color is best worn to display your passion for life?
Answer: Red. I like it because it stands out; makes a statement; I’m here and not going away.
Question: (Skipped this one)
Question: Underwear or commando?
Answer: Underwear. Same reason as PJ question.
Question: What bed size do you prefer? Why? King, queen, twin, single, other?
Answer: King or at a minimum a queen size. I like the room; like to spread out and stretch once in a while without hitting my wife. She’s kind of grumpy about that. 😊
Question: How do you react to last minute, no warning situations?
Answer: At first, I will probably vocalize my dismay ($%^&) at the situation, but will usually go with the flow unless the change leads to something I really don’t want to do. In that case, see previous quote in parenthesis.
Question: You’ve just woken up. What is the first thing you do?
Answer: I have to let the furries out to go potty and then feed them. They’re sort of pesky about that. Next step is to check my phone for new data.
