Thursday Thirteen

1. Why can you not return technological items (cameras, iPods, whatever) back to their original packaging so that it looks just like it did when you opened the box?

2. Would you rather play a game with someone who is more talented than you, or someone who is less talented? Would it matter if anyone else was watching?

3. Is there something you've dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven't you done it?

4. Why do we yell?

5. When you try something new, does the fact that you've never done it before increase its appeal or decrease it? How does it affect your anxiety levels? Does it depend on its importance?

6. If you knew that you would completely recover, would you accept a year of paralysis below the neck in order to save an endangered species?

7. Why is it so hard to say no? Do you have trouble saying no?

8. Why do we lose things? How often do you have to look for your keys, glasses, etc. (I bet few people misplace those smartphones.)

9. Why do things have to be either/or? Can't we have both? Do we always need both?

10. If you could get rid of your memories, would you do it? What if you could be selective about it?

11. What would you do if you could do anything you wanted?

12. How would you like to spend the last three months of your life?

13. Would you risk your life for somebody else? Would it depend on who it was?

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 317th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. Wow, you give me so much to think about so early in the a.m. I think my grandkids is the answer to #12 and #13. I really do like a good well matched game of Scrabble. Yelling is interesting, must be a built in survival technique. If I could do anything I might travel the world but first I would hire a guide to take care of all the stressful details.

  2. Quite the array of thought-provoking questions. Here's something else to think about: Winter Weather Preparedness ;-)

  3. WOW. Lots of thought provoking questions. Sometimes I wish I could choose which memories to keep and which to get rid of.

  4. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to answer these. They did make me think. I felt strongly about #6; my answer is no. Most of the time, I have no problem with that word.
