Rory’s Morning Dawdler — 01/12/23

Rory, the king of questions, also known as the Autistic Composter, has come up with a new series of questions that he calls “The Morning Dawdler.” He poses four questions three times a week, questions he says are “inspired by life, humor, conversations and observations, town life, blog posts, writers, gardening, news stories, television, entertainment, and human curiosity, and so on.”

Here are Rory’s four morning dawdler questions for today.

What is the most important meal to your day and why?

“They” say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But I don’t agree with “them.” I think it’s the one you eat when you’re hungry. I’ve found that when I’m not hungry, no meal seems nearly as important as it does when I am hungry.

How many bananas do you eat a week or do you not?

I slice a banana and put it in my cold cereal, which I eat every morning. So, using my higher math skills, my answer is seven.

Do you think self-help books actually help or hinder?

I don’t know. I have never read a self-help book in my life. But I am the type of man who likes to help himself, so maybe I should write one.

Should we all be more social and not enjoy solitude so much?

Who am I to advice people whether or not they should be more social or enjoy their solitude? Personally I’m on the solitude side of the ledger, but for others, it’s whatever floats your boat.

    I agree with you in regards to breakfast. Nothing worse than eating when you’re not hungry.

    I am not sure if I’ve ever read a self-help book. I might have because I worked at Doubleday and I had to read a lot of books. It’s hard to imagine, these days, being paid a good living wage for READING BOOKS. That was a great job.

    I’ve been having a couple stressful days (in a context of stressful years with my mom not acting like an adult… which is not actually new for her but is only on my shoulders now that my dad is gone). I made myself get ready within about fifteen minutes in order to join my oldest son and his wife on short notice at a local hangout this evening. Sure perked me up and chilled me out, regardless that I had considered not going.
