Do you know how many times I checked my calendar yesterday to make sure it was Monday? It was Monday, my calendar said so – but no notice from Cee that it was time to share. I knew she was okay, because I saw other posts from her. It all got better today when I received a post that said something burped, but it was there, just go here. Ahhh. Life is now complete.
1. While in school who was your favorite teacher – what grade and why? I’m not even sure I remember many of my teachers. I went to so many schools, anywhere from 4 to 8 a year most years. I do remember a couple of teachers I really didn’t like. I think the one I do remember that I liked was my 9th grade Civics teacher – Mr. Faccionello. He was also the football coach. He brooked no nonsense in his classroom and he made the subject interesting.
2. Would you accept $5,000 to shave your head or die it bright lime green and continue your normal activities while not explaining the reason for your haircut or color? Sure, why not? My hair has never come back to what was normal since I had chemo, so I keep it very very short now anyway – shaving it wouldn’t make a lot of difference. As to lime green – that would be a bit of a stretch and unusual for me, but hey! It’ll grow out, right? And an extra $5000 would be nice.
3. You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with? My kids. Both would find the humor in it, and Gep would remain calm. I really can’t think of many places I wouldn’t want to be with them.
4. When you are with your friends, do your interactions include much touching—for example, hugging, kissing, rough housing, rubbing backs? Would you like to have more of this? (Note: the answers may vary depending on where you live on this wonderful planet.)
Not a lot of contact – hugs when we first see each other if it’s been awhile, most often hugs when we part again. A touch here and there if one of us is having a tough time. One of my favorite memories of childhood was when a girlfriend would spend the night and we’d take turns rubbing each others’ back. If I could manage to have a gentle backrub, foot rub and scalp rub all at the same time, I’d be in heaven. Okay, you’ve got me going! I must call and schedule a mammogram, and I think I’ll schedule a massage for the same day. A “me” day!
And of course, a couple of photos:
