This week, Cee wants to talk about things like peanut butter. Peanut butter? Yep – she is reaching into our innermost parts to learn more about us. Because how we like our peanut butter is important, you know. Okay, maybe not important, but fun!
1. Are you left or right handed? Right-handed. My left hand is there to help balance, lift and carry things, and to hold my rings. Back in the day when I wore a watch, my left wrist was where it lived. The watch got in the way on my right wrist. That was when I actually used a pen or pencil and wrote things on paper. Real paper, not digital. Which is when I wore a watch, because now who needs a watch when our cell phone will tell us not only the time, but the day and date. Believe me, I need all the help I can get remembering that day/date thing.
2. Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? No, no usually. Unless it’s a call regarding a complaint, but rarely does the conversation go the way I rehearsed. I am very good at replaying conversations after the fact and coming up with much better things to say than what I said.
3. Crunchy Peanut Butter or Smooth Peanut butter? Anything with your peanut butter? Smooth, creamy peanut butter. The crunchies get in the way. My favorite thing with peanut butter is sliced bananas, both on bread of course. Peanut butter is also very good on celery sticks. Peanut butter and honey or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches occasionally, but most often these days it’s peanut butter on toast that has been slathered with butter first. Remember? Bread is a vehicle for butter.
4. How many rings before you answer the phone? A ringing phone makes me crazy, so I get to it as quickly as I can. I am unable to just ignore a ringing phone. Pretty sure this goes back to all those years when phone calls and service were an integral part of my work day. Now I really hate talking on the phone and rarely initiate calls.
There have been wildfires to the north of us and to the west of us the past couple weeks. Nothing near enough to be a threat, but the smoke from those fires does pour into our basin and linger. The result has been some rather colorful skies, and I’d like to share a few samples with you now.
I hope your day is filled with enough.
