Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about?
Not (yet?). I prefer to take the train, bus or cab when in unfamiliar territories or abroad where this is likely to happen for me.
As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches?
There was a year when I did. I was about 8 or 9 then. I don’t know what made me do it but I planned how I’d survive after running away and came up with a design of my ‘new’ place, a 5-year and 10-year plan on how much I have to make/spend on a daily basis to buy ‘the place’, including a budget for furniture, food and toys. Then I tried to apply for a job and realized the crack in my plan lol.
You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song?
Piano, sax or violin.
Do you accessorize with jewelry? Have you had any heirloom jewelry passed down through the generations? Is it more ‘keepsake’ or do you wear it on occasion?
Rarely. I used to when I was young but a kidnapping incident in elementary school made me stop for awhile until I got used to not putting them on. I do have some heirloom jewelry that I’ve never worn.
For the muggle questions:
What ingredients go into YOUR favorite salad?
I like almost anything in a salad as long as the ingredients don’t clash, except pasta salad. There was a time when I couldn’t get enough of roasted sesame salad dressing, I’d toss it in with mangoes, lettuce, chicken strips and a few other bits. Before that there was feta cheese and croutons.
If you care to, share something that really irritates you.
Politicians (too many to mention), scammers, people who don’t wear masks in shops and are proud or don’t care at others’ discomfort.
What are your favorite ‘lounging around the house’ items of clothing? Now that a lot of people ‘lounge around the house’ waiting for the all clear in respect to Covid being shown the door, have those lounging items changed?
I used to wear sweatpants and t-shirts or workout clothes at home, now I’m mostly in a dress or lounge pants and a tee. The lounge pants are as comfortable as pajamas but can be worn out.
GRATITUDE (as always this is optional)
Please feel free to share something about Autumn (or Spring if you’re gearing up for that) that you especially enjoy!
These are old photos that just make me smile. More spring photos featured in this post.
