Mysterious Questions

328884D4-0276-4113-A192-A9D9FE73C742My blogging friend, Leigha Robbins, was recently nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award. Leigha is a wonderful poetry and flash fiction blogger, so it’s no mystery why Sadje (Keep it Alive) nominated Leigha.

Leigha is also someone who regularly responds to my daily FOWC With Fandango one-word challenges. So when she posted five questions in response to her Mystery Blogger Award nomination and opened it up to anyone who wanted to answer them, how could I not?

Would you ever want to be famous with the lack of privacy most celebrities have?

No. I’m a private person and like it that way. Now I wouldn’t mind having the money that most celebrities have.

What country would you most like to travel to?

I’ve always wanted to go to New Zealand so that I could, if nothing else, flush a toilet and watch the water flow down in the opposite direction.

What is your dream home like?

Mortgage-free and maintenance-free.

If you could co-write with anyone (blogging world or published author) who would it be?

I’d say Stephen King, but he has an unnatural aversion to adverbs and I use adverbs frequently and gleefully.

(weird or funny question) You wake up in a jail cell… what is the crime you just committed?

      I’ve heard, although I don’t know this for a fact, that when you flush, the water goes down, yes, but when it swirls down the bowl in the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere than it does in the northern. I just Googled it and found out that it’s a misconception: “It is a commonly held misconception that toilet water always drains counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere because of the Coriolis force an acceleration imparted by the Earth’s rotation. The influence of the Coriolis force on spin direction is real, but it is generally only observable on very large scales, such as trade winds and hurricanes.” So apparently not in toilet bowls. Still, I would like to go to New Zealand.

        Toilet flushing huh? I must admit, this is incredibly interesting 😂 I’d like to see both tornados, one turning clockwise, one anti-clockwise. Just ones that don’t cause destruction. Must search about the Coriolis force *sigh* my curiosity (and partial nerdiness) gets the best of me 😂

    Sorry your dream vacation was ruined as a myth. If you find a maintenance free house let me know, sounds wonderful! THANK YOU for the kind words Fandango, and for answering my questions.
