Weekend Quickie — March ‘22 #4

In what is now a weekly prompt, Rory has a new batch of Weekend Quickie questions for us to ponder.

Is political correctness too politically correct?

I can’t answer this question without possibly causing great offense to some segment of my readers who might not like my answer, so rather than offer a definitive response, I think I’ll just equivocate by saying either “maybe” or “maybe not.”

What are you good at?


How did you learn to deep kiss? [which is different to pecking]

The girl who lived across the street from me when I was a teenager came over to my house one day when I was about 13 and asked me if I knew how to “French kiss.” I had no idea what it was (those days in the late 50s, teens were pretty innocent compared with today’s teens). She explained that it was kissing with mouths slightly open and with tongue action. She then asked me if I’d like to try French kissing with her. Why not, right? So we did try French kissing and we both liked it. We became, well, very close neighbors and practiced our newfound manner of kissing rather frequently after that.

When was the last time you took an unexpected turn and where did it take you?

When, two weeks ago, my wife and I adopted a rescue dog. I certainly never expected us to take that turn.

What are the benefits to having a purple front door?

Having a purple door will cause your neighbors and door-to-door solicitors to wonder what you were thinking when you painted your door that color, and they will avoid disturbing you because of concern that you’re not right in your head. (No offense meant towards anyone who has a purple door. I’d hate for this response to be considered politically incorrect.)

What patterns don’t mix, and why not, or can you mix anything and get away with it with ease?

I dunno. I’ve heard somewhere that stripes and plaids don’t mix, but most of what I wear are solid colors, so I really don’t care.

BDSM stands for what?

Big deal says me.

How do you know that you are smiling right when you are smiling?

Oops, silly me. I didn’t know that there was a right way to smile and a wrong way to smile. Now you have me worried, Rory. I’m going to go tell my wife I want to paint our front door purple, smile at her, and ask her if I’m smiling right or smiling wrong. I’ll let you know what she says.

When was the last time you hung a picture and what was it of?

A few weeks ago our son gave us a framed picture of our now five-month-old granddaughter that had her birth picture in the middle and her footprint on one side and her handprint on the other. We hung it next to a similar picture of our now 22-month old grandson.

You have two choices, the blue or the red pill. Which one do you take and why?

Either color, just as long as they are not the ones that mother gives you, which don’t do anything at all.

Bonus Question
Who said “If I swore you were an angel, would you treat me like the devil tonight?” and who were they talking to?

Donald Trump said this to Stormy Daniels, the porn star with whom he had an affair while his third wife was pregnant with his fifth child. She complied and spanked him hard with an issue of Forbes magazine.

    Don’t take any pills mother gives you! They might make you overly politically correct!

      She said no way I’m painting the front door purple and to wipe that stupid smile off my face.

    Fun answers to read 😬! As for pills my mother gave me, she denies (falsely) that she ever gave me aspirin (because it has been subsequently found and conveyed that children should not be given aspirin when they have a virus like the flu or a cold). It doesn’t matter to her that aspirin and tea is a good memory of care. In adulthood, she once — once — gave me something that knocked me out (and I don’t remember or know why she gave it to me). The last drug I asked if she had was Benadryl (pink). That’s where I draw the line. I’ve chosen the red pill.

    I likewise have a red front door (and I have never had purple but also didn’t have red before this home). The person who trims my hair has told me that he was, years ago, considering buying a house (building a home) in a Florida neighborhood that was being drummed up as the greatest new thing. They had a rule against red doors though, so he put his foot down and opted out. (This came up because my oldest son and his wife are building in a highly-touted new neighborhood that I would have advised against had they asked but which is t in Florida).

    The last picture I framed and then hung on a wall was of the white woman who married into the Choctaw tribe — thus was considered by them as full-blood Indian — back in the eighteen hundreds in my children’s family line. This piece of art had been in the family for generations but not framed; ended up in my “partner’s” hands. I could see it getting frayed although having stayed in good shape until then; now had one small wrinkle. I grabbed the first frame at hand, did this before I went to bed in the middle of the night. It’s at the top of the stairs to the second floor.
