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.
Have you learned anything new about your personality that you didn’t know beforehand whileon your blogging journey?
Yes, I didn’t know how much I enjoyed writing flash fiction, that I liked responding to other bloggers’ Q&A posts, or that I’d enjoy hosting my own prompts as much as I do. But most important, when I started my very first blog in 2005, I had no idea that 18 years later, I’d still be at it.
What are your last thoughts of the night before you turn your lights off, ready to sleep?
The last thing I do at night before turning off the lights is read and respond to comments that I hadn’t gotten to during the day. Then I shut off my iPhone, close my eyes, and start drifting off into dreamland almost immediately.
What is the most ridiculous thing you have ever heard anyone say, write, or blog about?
Anything positive about Donald Trump and/or about today’s Republican Party.
What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?
I think I’ll flip this question over and answer, “What can I no longer do today that I was capable of a year ago?”
Having busted my hip and undergone partial hip replacement surgery three weeks ago, I can no longer:
- Walk without the use of a walker or without pain
- Ride my ebike
- Walk or play with my dog
- Be independent (I am depended upon my wife to assist me with many of my activities of daily living)
- Do anything quickly
- Have the energy to put into blogging (or much of anything else for that matter)
Hopefully, over the next few months, I should regain the ability to do most of these things.
