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 from yesterday that I’m just getting around to today.
What is the weirdest fact you know?
This is not the weirdest fact I know, but it’s the most disturbing. There are more firearms in the United States of America than there are men, women, and children combined. And Americans purchased more firearms in 2020 and 2021 than at any point in the nation’s history. Furthermore, the leading cause of death for children in the U.S. is guns. Think about that.
Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
I’m going with breakfast because I have same breakfast almost every single day: a bowl of half Special K, half Wheaties, with a scoop of raisins and a sliced banana over which is poured enough organic 2% milk to just cover the cereal flakes. It’s a no brainer, whereas lunches and dinners require more thought and preparation.
What do you enjoy most about your blog?
Interactions with other members of the blogging community.
What are you passionate about outside of writing?
Right now I’m most passionate about doing everything I can to facilitate and speed the healing of my broken hip and injured right shoulder, including religiously doing the assigned in-home exercises.
