PCGuy, over at Thoughts and Theories, has started a new prompt that he calls Truthful Tuesday. In case you don’t know it, he, along with his alternate-weeks host, Di, over at Pensitivity101, host a different prompt, Fibbing Friday. I don’t participate in that prompt because, quite bluntly, I think it’s silly. No offense, Di and PCGuy, but I just don’t see the point of posting made up answers to questions. So I pass on Fibbing Friday each week.
But PCGuy’s new prompt is all about being truthful instead of fibbing. In fact, he says that, unlike Fibbing Friday, where you’re supposed to answer each question with a fib, for Truthful Tuesday, we are told that honest answers are required.
So, being the honest guy that I am, I have decided to give Truthful Tuesday a try. Are you ready to rumble?
Do you prefer coffee or tea? (You must pick at least one, even if neither are your favorite beverage.)
I am a coffee drinker. I am not a fan of tea at all. Well, at least not hot tea in a cup. I will, upon occasion, drink iced tea.
Considering your previous choice, do you prefer it hot or iced?
It must be steaming hot.
How do you take it (cream, sugar, honey, black, etc.)?
Black with one packet of Splenda (artificial sweetener) added.
What is your earliest memory of drinking coffee?
I didn’t drink coffee in high school or college, which is where most of the people I know became hooked on caffeine in order to help them stay up and study for exams and/or write papers. I started drinking coffee when I went to basic training in the army after graduating from college. It became a lifetime habit with me.
What is your earliest memory of drinking tea?
One of the reasons I don’t drink hot tea is because I associate it with illness. Whenever I was sick, be it a head cold, a stomach ache, or whatever, my mother would fix me a cup of hot tea with a teaspoon of honey in it and make me drink it all up. It was, she said, a miracle cure for whatever ails you. I don’t know if it did any good, but it turned me off to drinking hot tea for the rest of my life.
Okay, so maybe participating in Fibbing Friday will be a bit more entertaining for you to read. I re-read this post and it’s really quite boring. Perhaps what it needs is a cup of hot tea with a spoonful of honey to make it all better.
