It’s Monday again, and Cee’s Life Photography has issued her invitation to each of us to share a bit more of our world. Here goes nothing!
What is one of your quirky traits? My money (paper bills) in my wallet must be in the proper sequence: first are the ones, then fives, then tens, and so on. They also must all be facing forward, and upright. No backwards, no upside-down, none of that allowed. This, of course, is presuming that I actually have paper bills in my wallet. That is not always the case. This trait stems, I’m sure, from when I was a concession stand attendant/cashier at a theater when I was in business school. Back then, money being in proper order was required, and counting out change was required. In addition, that meant some basic math skills were required, since our cash registers did not tell us what the proper amount of change was. We actually had to figure it out ourselves. Can you imagine such a thing?!
If you could be given ANY gift what would it be? The ability to be the soothing comfort I would like to be for my loved ones when they are suffering. Or maybe the ability to remember where those “safe places” are that I put important (and not-so-important) things.
What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Oh gosh, can I just lump it all together and say housework? No? Darn! Okay, so I think the chore I hate the very most is dusting. I love how things look when it’s done, but I hate the process of having to move all of this stuff I’ve accumulated over the years, dusting it and the surface on which it sits and then getting it back in place. I know, I know. The obvious answer is to sort and eliminate. One of these days I will wake up in the proper ruthless mood and do just that.
If you could play any sport professionally what would it be? Swimming. Not diving, that requires going off edges way up there, but synchronized swimming would be good. When I was young and used to go swimming a lot, I loved the feeling of the water sliding over my body. I also liked archery, the little bit of it we did in phys ed. I am now a professional viewer of some sports. And a professional procrastinator when it comes to getting exercise, a lot of which is involved in sports. Well, maybe not so professional, since I receive no remuneration for any of this, but I definitely am an expert at the procrastination part.
Because I feel a need to put photos in my blog posts, here are three of them, all from our trip back east. These were taken in the village of Mystic, Connecticut.
