As per the “rules,” Lisa came up with eleven questions to ask the bloggers she nominated to pass the nomination on to. I was not one of them. But then she opened up her questions to anyone who would like to answer them because, she said, “I do enjoy a good free for all!”
And I enjoy free for alls as well, so here goes.
1. If you had the opportunity to meet Jesus [or insert deity of choice] what question would you ask?
Well, since I’m an atheist who doesn’t believe that deities exist, I’d say, “Hey, dude, prove it!”
2. What’s your favorite memory from childhood?
The very first time I found out that girls don’t have penises. I wrote all about HERE.
3. If someone gave you a skateboard and directed you to a steep hill, would you give it a go?
Yeah. I’d give the skateboard back to the person who gave it to me and I’d go…home.
4. If it was perfectly acceptable to walk around naked would you?
Absolutely. (But not while downhill skiing at Taos.)
5. If you were given the gift of telepathy for one hour would you use it and, if so, who with?
Yes, and I’d use it with my dog and cat. I would love to know what they really think of me.
6. What would you change about your life if you knew your ‘sell by date’?
According to DeathClock.com, my “sell by date” is January 28, 2020.So it’s fast approaching. I mentioned this in THIS post. Given that it’s less than 14 months away, I think, rather than trying to change anything, I’ll just leave well enough alone.
7. What’s the funniest thing that you’ve ever seen?
Well, I didn’t think at the time it was very funny, but since my wife often tells people that this was the funniest thing she’d ever seen, I’ll go with it. I was changing the diaper for my relatively newborn son and just as I unfastened his diaper, and opened it up, he let go of a stream that hit me right in the face. It kinda pissed me off, so to speak, but my wife couldn’t stop laughing. Nor can she, to this day, stop telling that story to anyone who will listen.
8. There is a fork in the road – one way leads to a certain future where contentment is guaranteed and the other to uncertainty with the possibility of both ecstasy and agony; which path would you choose?
Perhaps I’m taking this fork in the road question a little too literally. Anyway, given my age and where I am in my life, I think future contentment is definitely the way to go.
9. Days on the beach or nights by a log fire, which would you choose?
Nights by a log fire, for sure.
10. If you could be guaranteed to feel no fear, what would you do that you haven’t done up until now?
I’m less concerned about feeling fear than I am about feeling pain. So if I could be guaranteed to feel no pain, I think I’d love to get behind the wheel of an Indy Car and drive in the Indy 500 race.
11. If you had the choice between giving 100 Christmas gifts and receiving nothing or receiving 100 and giving none, which would you choose.
To be honest, I don’t know 100 people to give Christmas gifts to or who would give them to me. That said, what’s that old saying? Neither a giver nor a receiver be.” Oh wait, that was about borrowers and lenders. Sorry about that.
