Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing

1. What’s the coolest item you’ve found at a garage sale, flea market, etc?

A. My dog Ginger, back in 1984. She lived for 17 years.

Ginger facing down a raccoon. She's the black dog on the left.

2. Describe how your day went yesterday.

A. I did a lot of laundry, listened to an audiobook, watched the weather forecast, and cheered when I learned my old high school girls' basketball team won the state.

3. Do you have issues with people entering your personal space? What do you do when your personal space is violated?

A. Yes I have issues. When my space is violated, I move.

4. What is the one meal recipe you think you’ve mastered?

A. Boiling water.

5. If you could take back something you did to someone, what would it be?

A. I'd have never given that silly boy some melted asphalt and told him it was black licorice.

6. Would you describe yourself as spiritual, religious, or something else?

A. Spiritual.

7. Did you ever receive detention in school? What sort of kid were you in school – bookworm, smart kid, troublemaker, quiet … etc.

A. I was a smart and quiet kid (graduated 5th in the class) who once found herself in "in school" detention, which basically meant I went to study hall and did nothing. This was for skipping band class, which was my last class of the day. After I became a junior and had a car it was easy to slip out and go home and miss that class. I just happened to get caught once.

8. When’s the last time you ran a mile? How often do you exercise?

A. I walk an average of 6,000 to 7,000 steps a day. I don't run anywhere, but I try to get in that many steps every day, with at least 15 minutes of moderate activity on my Fitbit.

9. What would you say to your 16-year-old self, and why?

A. Try the escargot.

10. What are you avoiding?

A. Taking a shower, at the moment.

11. Describe a “Hah! I told you so” moment you had recently.

A. I have them all the time and they are usually directed at my husband. They come by the bushel basketful, so no point in digging a single one out.

12. What’s more important, where you live or what you do for a living? Why?

A. I think they are equally important. I don't know why, I just do.

13. Swear words: Are you pro or con? Why?

A. I am pro swear words, you dirty-sided flea-bitten bottom feeder. Mess with me and I shall fart in your general direction.

14. Paper or plastic? Do you prefer to pack your own groceries?

A. I took my own bags for a long time, but mostly I get the plastic ones. I reuse them in other trash cans at home or take them back for recycling.

15. Do you have a shoe fetish? How often do you buy new shoes? Do you ever get rid of a pair of shoes?

A. I do not have a shoe fetish. I buy new shoes once or twice a year. I get rid of shoes every time I clear out the closet.

  1. Have you, then, tried escargot? It was about 40 when I went to a French restaurant and decided to try...it was so good we had a second order! You'll have to send me your recipe for boiling water. I've heard it's quite good.

  3. The asphalt trick was mean but funny. Was the little boy your brother? I step back on personal space and have to do it often, mostly at work. Don’t feel bad about the boiling water. I used to know someone who couldn’t even get that recipe right and burned 3 pots trying( not me ... I can cook, love to as a matter of fact) it’s a damn shame I only cook for my mom and her caregivers. Which I guess answers the swear word question. Lol! :-)

  4. Oh my gosh, I can't believe I never even thought of my dogs as an answer to #1. My poodle came from a garage sale and years ago when my son was just turning 2 I ended up buying a sheltie at a yard sale!
