Lisa’s Eleven Questions

B1282B2E-CF22-4BAB-93BB-B0C5D0C5E29ALisa, at All About Life, was nominated by Rory (A Guy Named Bloke) for her 4th (she thinks) Sunshine Blogger Award. Congrats Lisa!

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.BEAAD49A-D45E-41E5-8185-2389A4B8A9D0

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, 2020.623F02A7-0BB8-48E2-BCC6-43A48EC3C230So 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?

C635479F-866A-4C07-9B94-FF7D16CF8D00Perhaps 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.

    Great answers. I’m supposed to die June 29, 2054. My kid will be 50, I’ll be 79. Don’t think I will though. Most women in the family live into their 90s on both sides.

        No, not yet – but I notice you were born in the Chinese sign of the Dog – me, too! Hoooowwwwl!
        But you’re fire, and I’m earth – we’d make good pots! or weapons! Oh, I could do something for that in a story …

        My mad driving days are behind me – I did the quarter-mile drags in Ravensthorpe many years ago, when they still ran them … a long time ago, when the world was young, and I was, too.

          My mad driving days will occasionally resurface on the freeways around here when I get mad at some idiot who clearly doesn’t know how to drive. Or maybe at most other drives who don’t know how to drive. Fortunately for me and then, I don’t have to do too much freeway driving anymore.

    Okie, you ”forced” me to check my passing date too! But I am lucky because it is only due on July 28 2050! Unless I go into sadistic mode, in which case, I am dead since 2013. That’s kind of sad, if you ask me, because it means I never went to Denmark. BUT you are being stalked by a wannabe-blogger ghost, which is pretty cool, wouldn’t you say?

        I know, right?? Don’t you feel special? 😛 I have only one regret, though. Had I known I was dead, I would have quit my job a while back LOL

    Well now, that certainly makes nude skiing easier for them!

      Yeah, but they have to deal with bumps and moguls…more bounce to the ounce, shall we say?

    Probably a good choice on the telepathy…knowing what other people think, I think, would be scary.
