Sunday Stealing: Big Bad

From Sunday Stealing

Big Bad Meme

1. Is there anyone else in the room with you atm? What are they doing?

A. I don't have an ATM in my house, but I certainly envy anyone who does. How great would that be, to have money available like that. Oh. Wait. You mean "at the moment." I'm alone.

2. Do you show your teeth when you smile, or do you prefer smiling with your lips closed?

A. I've never given this much thought, but my teeth show in my photo here.

3. Would you rather be told the truth, even if it isn’t what you want to hear?

A. I prefer the truth, yes. Unless it's Christmas and you've bought me a present. Then you don't have to tell me the truth.

4. What is something that you plan to buy, as soon as you’ve saved up the money for it?

A. I may purchase a MAC if Windows 10 continues to be the bane of my existence. But I have other things that need to be taken care of before I do that.

5. Do you play Sudoku?

A. No.

6.  Have you ever had a migraine?

A. Yes. I used to average about three a month, for three days each, and ultimately this led to my starting a freelance career. No employer wants to keep around an employee who is sick that often. They have diminished as I've aged. Also, for fellow migraine sufferers, I have found that a combination of magnesium malate (has to be that kind) and Vitamin B2 makes a big difference in the frequency and severity of the migraine.

7. What was the last book you read for pleasure?

A. Salvage the Bones, by Jesmyn Ward. I am currently listening to V is for Vengeance, by Sue Grafton. 

8. What was the last item of clothing you purchased for yourself?

A. Last night I bought myself a new pair of house slippers.

9. Your first serious relationship, do you still talk to him/her?

A. No.

10. Who is the last person you texted?

A. I don't text.

11. How close is your family?

A. My brother and father live about seven miles from me. My mother-in-law is within sight distance (about 1/2 mile away).

12. Is there anything too serious to be joked about?

A. Gun violence. Slavery. Rape. Murder. Etc. I know those things are joked about but they should not be. 

13. Do you like to understand and have good knowledge of things?

A. I do.

14. What is worse? Back pain or shoulder pain?

A. Pain is bad wherever one has it.

15. Have you ever almost fallen off of something high off the ground?

A. I don't recall.

16. What’s one fruit you love in drinks?

A. I only drink tea or water.

17. What is something simple that you’re afraid of?

A. I'm not a fan of rats or spiders, if that is what you mean.

18. Has this weekend been good?

A. It's been okay. My husband took me to dinner. Winner winner!

19. How much time do you take to get ready in the morning?

A. About 45 minutes, including shower and everything.

20. Last movie you watched in theaters and with whom?

A. The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies with my husband, which premiered last December. We don't go to the movies much.


I encourage you to visit other participants in
Sunday Stealing posts and leave a comment. Cheers to all us thieves who love memes, however we come by them.


  1. I was thinking about slippers yesterday. I think I've decided to try knitting myself a pair.

  2. That "ATM" was kind of juvenile stupid. I can't remember the last time my husband took me out to dinner. Probably on a trip somewhere.

  3. Isnt it interesting how these memes make us think /remember things we wouldnt have given much thought otherwise. For instance, I never realized that I smile with my teeth showing in almost all the pics! Rats, lizards freak me out too!
