Lauren, over at LSS Attitude is Gratitude, got nominated by Sadje for that award, The Real Neat Blog Award, that, like the coronavirus, is going around a lot these days. So congratulations on the award, Lauren. In her acceptance post, Lauren posed some interesting questions and invited anyone who likes to answer questions to “consider yourself nominated.”
Alright then. I like to answer questions so I’m considering myself to be nominated and I’m going to answer Lauren’s questions.
1. If you could redo high school, knowing what you know now, would you do it?
Skip high school. Why bother redoing high school if I already know what I would learn there?
2. If you are a meat eater, what is the strangest meat you have tried?
My wife and I were in Phoenix years ago and they had rattlesnake on the menu. While I thought it tasted a lot like chicken, I did notice an urge after eating it to slither away from the restaurant.
3. In your opinion, is it more important to be spiritual or religious?
Hmm. Well, as an atheist, I’m neither spiritual nor religious. That said, for others, whether spirituality or religiosity is more important is entirely up to them. Whatever floats their boat.
4. If you could be in any TV series for a few walk on spots, which one would it be? (Old or new is OK.)
When I was younger, a lot of people said that I resembled the father on the TV show “Family Ties.” My son once tried to encourage me to send in my head shot to see if I could get a recurring role as Steven Keaton’s younger brother in the show.
5. (Let’s get risky now.) Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, what is it like?
As I noted in my answer to number 3, I’m an atheist, so I don’t believe in an afterlife. I believe that when it’s over, it’s over.
6. Do you think we are headed toward a society with no actual money, just cards or codes? Is is happening in some places.
Probably. I can’t remember the last time I used cash money.
7. What stresses you more, car trouble or house repair trouble?
I don’t drive that much anymore and I keep my car in good repair. That said, house repairs tend to be more costly than car repairs, so as far as stressors are concerned, I’d go with house repairs.
On behalf of Lauren, I invite all interested parties to jump right in and join the party. Top photo image credit: Shutterstock.
