Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, is going all out with his Daily Four questions. Here are his latest questions.
Do you prefer variety or routine?
Although they say that variety is the spice of life, I’m at the age where too much spice gives me indigestion, so I’m going with routine.
What is the stupidest way you have ever hurt yourself?
Way back in the day when I was a hippie in the late 60s, I was attending a party at a friend’s house. I admit that I was quite stoned when this particular incident occurred. Also, in addition to smoking joints, I used to smoke cigarettes at the time. I was talking to one of the other party guests when I wanted to light up a cigarette. I didn’t have a match or a lighter, and nor did the person I was talking with. I looked around the room and saw a scented oil lamp sitting on a table, similar to the one pictured below.I focused on the flame in the lamp, and, intent on using it to light my cigarette, without thinking through my actions, I grabbed the oil lamp’s glass chimney and lifted if off the base of the lamp. Bottom line, I burned the shit out of the skin on my thumb and forefinger when I lifted up the hot glass chimney from the lamp. I screamed at the pain, and, of course, dropped the glass chimney, which shattered all over the floor.
Would you rather gargle with vinegar or snort a line of rock salt?
Neither, yuck. But of the two options, if I had to choose, I’d gargle with vinegar.
What’s the one food you could never bring yourself to eat?
