Sunday Stealing: Sit Right Down

From Sunday Stealing

Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter Meme

When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper? A. If personalized long notes on Christmas cards count, then Christmas. Otherwise, it has been quite a while.

Can you change the oil on a car? A. I used to be able to. I still know how to measure it but I have a husband for the other issues.

Ever gotten a speeding ticket? A. No.

Run out of gas? A. Not that I recall.

Favorite kind of sandwich? A. A good chicken salad sandwich is always welcome.

Best thing to eat for breakfast? A. Eggs, bacon, grits with butter, biscuits and gravy.

What is your usual bedtime? A. 10 p.m.

Are you lazy? A. No, I am in constant pain. There's a difference. I have worked for as long as remember, and even now I try to find things to do to keep busy.

When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween? A. Hobos, fairy princess, witches, the usual.

Do you have any magazine subscriptions? A. I subscribe to O! and Reader's Digest. I have let my other subscriptions lapse.

Which are better, legos or lincoln logs? A. There is no right answer to that question. Any one with a creative bent would love either. I'd also like to have an Erector set.

Are you stubborn? A. I can be.

Who is better . . . Leno or Letterman? A. I used to watch Letterman occasionally. But I don't have an opinion on "better."

Ever watch soap operas? A. A very long time ago. When I was too young to be watching it, I loved Dark Shadows. Later, I was a fan of The Guiding Light.

Afraid of heights? A. Not really. I do not like elevators, though.

Sing in the car? A. Of course.

Dance in the shower? A. Of course.

Dance in the car? A. Well, as well as one can dance in a car.

Ever used a gun? A. I have, yes.

Do you think musicals are cheesy? A. I wish life were a musical. Wouldn't it be fantastic if we were at the mall, and suddenly everyone burst into song? I think that would be splendid.

Is Christmas stressful? A. Yes.

Ever eat a pierogi? A. I don't know what it is, so I don't think so.

Major annoyance right now? A. Just an overwhelmed sort of feeling that I can't make go away. Plus there is this tune on a Land Rover Evoque commercial that is driving me kind of crazy because it is from something from my childhood, but I can't remember what. I also can't find the darned commercial online so I can try to figure out the tune. Everything else is just sad and pathetic, and who wants to read about that.

Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid? A. Geologist, archeologist, writer, historian, librarian, teacher. What I really wanted to be was the next generation Carolyn Keene, and write Nancy Drew books. But that did not happen.

Do you believe in ghosts? A. Sure, why not. There is just as much evidence for them as there is for all the other BS that people believe.


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. Is this the commercial?

    I love your "musicals" answer!

    1. No, not the right commercial. This commercial has something like oboes in it with a single line of music, and I think the vehicle is green. But thanks for trying!

  2. Another one who hasn't enjoyed the joy of pierogies! I'm beginning to think I should mail everyone a care package. You don't know what you are missing....and Mrs. T's, while passable, are not like real homemade ones.

    I like the idea of everyone breaking out into song at the mall, too. That would be so much fun!

    Have a great week!

  3. Oh yes, it would be lovely to have more flash mobs singing in malls. I,too, believe in ghosts. Our first house had one. She was a gentle young woman. Have a good week, CountryDew. The new header is beautiful.

  4. I'm planning a New York trip to see musicals. :-) I've never been, and I have a friend starring in Something Rotten.

  5. I total agree with you on ghosts. Anything anyone believes that has no evidence is a personal matter but one is as silly as the next...

  7. Is it this commercial?

    According to the comments the song is Baby Elephant Walk by Henry Mancini.

  8. Wrote an actual, albeit short, letter to a friend in May. And Legos are way better than Lincoln Logs (both of which should be capitalized, which I'm sure you knew even if the meme writer did not.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
