Silly Sunday questions and answers

I found these questions over on Sunday Stealing and meant to answer them last night but time ran out as I meal prepped for the week. The writer of that blog scours the internet for questions during the week and compiles the questions into a list for Sundays. Here goes: 
1. When was the last time you went to the doctor? Do you like your doctor?
Which one? I have 3 regular doctors - internist, gynecologist, allergy doctor - and I like all three a lot! I get two allergy shots every month so I'm at least in her office fairly often but I don't always see her. I see the gyno just once a year. She is the kindest doctor. She is one of those folks with whom I would love to be friends! Speaking of friends, my internist is my best friend's husband! I definitely love him. We've raised our children together and we are in the same supper club.

2. My back is itching, will you scratch it for me?
I will if you are my child or maybe my husband . . . other than that, I'll show you how to back up to the door and scratch your back like a bear!

3. Do you have nice handwriting?
I have lovely handwriting MOST of the time. I hand addressed all of the wedding invitations for our daughter and I hand address some special correspondence at work. When my hand gets tired though, my writing can get sloppy very quickly!

4. We are sending you to either New Zealand or Canada, which one do you choose?
My first choice would be New Zealand but just yesterday I was in a conversation about a trip to a bed and breakfast in Canada where my husband and his twin brother would like to go. It sounds a little remote for me so I might need to choose a luxury hotel. My hubby has been to Saskatchewan two different times for fishing trips and flew into the area in a tiny float plan.

5. Do you sing in the shower?
Did you mean, "do you croak in the shower"? I don't sing or croak in the shower. I used to be able to sing - was even in All State Choir and in a small ensemble when I was young but it must be true, "if you don't use it, you lose it" because I can't sing anymore!

6. Have you ever been streaking? If so, how far did you streak and did anyone see you?
Does through the house to the laundry room for a towel count? I've been skinny dipping but I don't think I've ever actually streaked. My son does have a story about streaking though!

7. How soon is too soon for Christmas decorations and music playing in the stores?
I would prefer that decorations and music start on the day after Thanksgiving. I definitely think that too early encompasses all of October and November up until Thanksgiving but that is just my personal opinion and I really love Thanksgiving!

8. If you celebrated Halloween as a kid what was the costume you wore at 5?
You want me to remember a costume when I was 5 years old? hahahahaha! Some of the standard costumes were princesses with these weird masks that you could buy at the store and gypsies because it was an easy costume to make. We always went trick or treating in our neighborhood and I LOVE Halloween to this day. We live in a neighborhood where we have about 1200 trick or treaters and it is so much fun!

Weren't these princess masks scary???

9. How many cavities have you had in your life?
Maybe 6? All of them were when I was much much much younger and the cavities were in those back teeth on each side.

10.  Is there anyone you regret meeting.

I had to pause and think a moment. I don't think so. Even my worst memories of a few people caused a ripple effect of learning in my life. As I thought about people in my life, my memories flickered over one area. I was abused as a 5 year old and I did sit here and wonder what life would have been like if I had never met that man. If I had never met him, I might not have trust issues still today. If I had never met him, I wouldn't have memories that still haunt me today but I also wouldn't have the empathy that I have for others. I also wouldn't know the power of forgiveness - I never EVER have to forget AND I never EVER have to allow my children or grandchildren (or any other child) be put in that kind of situation but I can know the power of forgiveness. Even the people that I haven't particularly "liked" in my life have shaped me and help me grow in some way or another. 
 too deep!

  1. Oh, this reminds me we need to find new doctors! I'm afraid I may have to consult an allergist, as well. The B&B in Canada sounds really intriguing!
