Sunday Questions

This is from Sunday Stealing

The Weird Question Meme, Part One

Q. Do you wear slippers?

A. Yes. Well, I call them slippers but they are actually moccasins.
Q. How many pictures are in your living room?

A. You know, I have to go look. Hang on a minute . . . this is what is on my walls in that room: two pictures (one of Hollins University done by P Buckley Moss and another of a rustic scene), a duo of dulcimers, and a shadow box of firefighter memorabilia which also hangs with the iconic photo of the firefighters raising the US flag in New York after the attack on the World Trade Center.

Q. Do you ever watch Brady Bunch reruns?

A. Not very often, no. I can't recall the last time I did.
Q. Are you allergic to anything?

A. Shellfish, citrus fruit (oranges and grapefruit in particular), grasses, trees (oak, pine, etc), flowers (all of them that bloom), animal dander, black pepper, etc.
Q. When was the last time you called in sick?

A. I'm self-employed. I never call in anything, I just do what I want.

Q. Have you ever been in a car accident?

A. Yes. One year I was in three of them, none of them my fault. The scariest was when I was rear-ended on the interstate, simply because of the location.  I was on an overpass and there was nowhere to go. The worst was when I nearly totalled my Taurus in the mid-1990s. That one was sort of my fault, but the judge did not convict me for it because there were extenuating circumstances.
Q. What is your favorite snack food?

A. I like chocolate. And potato chips.

Q. Have you ever seen a tornado?

A. When I was in high school, I was with the band and we were in Bristol, TN for a competition. While we were eating in a diner, a tornado came through. We couldn't actually see it but the winds were so bad that we all got up and moved away from the windows. Afterward, we took the bus to the competition site and could see the tornado's path down the side of a small mountain. It tore an outdoor movie theater right in half.

Q. If you won a million dollars, what would you buy first?

A. A new car. I plan to replace my Camry with a Camry, but if I had more funds I might go for an Avalon or a Cadillac. I'd have to drive the cars first to see how I liked them, though.
Q. What time is it right now?

A.  It is the right time to make time for all time.
Q. Do you think it's cool for men to wear flip-flops?

A. I can't say that I've ever really thought about it.

Q. How many pairs of shoes do you own?

A. More than 10 and less than 50. I am not going to go count them.
Q. Do you think you are a hypochondriac?

A. Probably. Most people worry about having something at some time or another.
Q. Do you own a dictionary?

A. I own several dictionaries, and a couple of thesauruses.
Q. Where was the last place you went on vacation?

A. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Q. Do you talk about your friends behind their back?

A. I try not to.
Q. Are you actually fat but in complete denial about it?

A. No. I am fat and fully aware of it.
Q. What color is your mouse pad?

A. Yellow.
Q. Does your kitchen have a theme?

A. Does stainless steel count as a theme? If not, then no.


  1. I would hate to be allergic to oranges, I love fruit. Can't eat grapefruit because of high blood pressure medicine, and I love it.

  2. I love your shoe answer. I really ought to count mine, I bet I'm on the higher end of your range.

  3. Camry's are really good cars. My daughter has one that is 15 years old. It's a "don't laugh- it's paid for" kind of car.

  4. I couldn't tell you how many pictures are in my living room without going out to check, either. You have A LOT more pairs of shoes than I do. I've never been much of a shoe person.

  5. And here I thought Bristol would be safe from tornadoes! My niece and her family live quite near there. Yikes.

    Also, Happy Birthday, co-'63 baby! Mine is later this year.

  6. I would say stainless steel is a theme,,,!

  7. Wow, what a bummer to have so many allergies. The fruit one would be hard for me. I love oranges.
