Sunday Stealing: Bud's Last Questions

Sunday Stealing: Last The 40 Questions from Bud

Here is a song for Bud, who is no longer authoring the Sunday Stealing meme. It's called The Last Goodbye. Congratulations to Bev, who is taking it over, at least for a while.

1. My uncle once : Told me I couldn't read when I was three years old, so I picked up a book and read it to him. When he said I was just "remembering" it, I told him to give me something else, and then I read him that. He didn't tell me I couldn't read anymore.

2. Never in my life : Have I gone parachuting.

3. When I was seventeen : I was young and foolish, a dreamer who thought the world had promise. I know better now.

4. High School was : Something I'd rather not revisit.

5. I will never forget : The day I married.

No cake-smashing for us.

6. I once met : A man with seven wives, as I was going to St. Ives. Each wife had seven sacks. Each sack had seven cats. Each cat had seven kits. Kits, cats, sacks, and wives, how many were going to St. Ives?

7. There’s this girl I know who : Fell down a rabbit hole and landed on a chessboard, where the Red Queen said, "Off with her head."

8. Once, at a bar : Somebody had a drink.

9. By noon, I’m usually : Done for the day.

10. Last night : I did not sleep well.

11. If only I had : Paid more attention.

12. Next time I go to gym/church : The roof will fall in, as I don't attend either one.

13. Susan Boyle : Is not someone I know anything about.

14. What worries me most : Is the way that people no longer love one another or understand the cooperative nature of society. Where has all the empathy gone?

Looking left in my office.
15. When I turn my head left, I see : Two clocks, a bookcase full of books, some cameras, and a picture of Gandalf the White from Lord of the Rings.

16. When I turn my head right, I see : A picture of three angels, painted by a friend, a plate hanging on the wall that says Friends are the family we choose for ourselves, and a bunch of papers piled on my desk.
Looking right in my office.

17. You know I’m lying when : I flush or blush or something. I don't know. I don't lie often enough to know what my "tells" are.

18. What I miss most about the eighties : Is being younger and more able to do things.

19. If I was a character in Shakespeare, I’d be : One of the witches in Macbeth.

20. By this time next year : I hope to be feeling better and maybe working more.

21. A better name for me would be : Smart ass, according to a number of people I know.

22. I have a hard time understanding : How people can vote against their own interests.

23. If I ever go back to school, I’ll : Get a Ph.D. and become a college professor.

24. You know I like you if : I talk to you.

25. If I ever won an award, the first person I’d thank would be : My husband.

26. When I compare 80s rock to 90s rock : I just don't do that.

27. Take my advice, never : Sniff a dog's butt.

28. My ideal breakfast is : Scrambled eggs, bacon, grits, biscuits and gravy.

29. A song I love, but do not own is : American Pie, by Don McLean.

30. If you visit my hometown, I suggest : That you take a hike up to McAfee's Knob.

31. My favorite Beatle is : Paul McCartney.

32. Why won’t people : Put the food carts into the bins at the supermarket instead of leaving them all over the parking lot.

My couch.
33. If you spend the night at my house : You will have to sleep on the couch, because I don't have an extra bed.

34. I’d stop my wedding for : A fire in the building.

35. The world could do without : Negative political advertising.

36. I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than : Jesus, I don't know. I am not much on licking cockroaches.

37. My favorite blonde is : I don't have one.

38. Paper clips are more useful than : Nail polish.

No fingernails for nail polish. I bite my nails.

39. If I do anything well, it’s : Write and be a smart ass, apparently.

40. And by the way : Thank you, Bud, for hosting Sunday Stealing for 10 years even though I've only been playing for about five of those. (I played a while before I "signed up" but I answered the questions.)

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. We apparitely have the same nickname....

  2. We share a lot of similar answers this week! Your nursery rhyme/fairy tale answers were funny. Sad that the next generation doesn't really seem to know the old rhymes. Love "American Pie." I always crank it and "Piano Man" and sing along...even though I am a really bad singer. It's actually much better for everyone if I hear them alone in the car.

  3. Oh yes, one of the Witches! Good one!
    #32. I watches a few weeks ago while a customer put her empty cart into a flower bed, with a lot of effort, when not ten steps away was a cart stall.

  4. Love your answers to #'s 27, 28, 32, & 35.

  5. Professor! I like that role for you.

    And I think it's lovely you went with a hat instead of a veil.

    1. Rather non-traditional for 1983, I think. Thank you.

  6. I love your answers and it seems we had a few answers in common.


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