Another week, another challenge from Cee. Time for my muse to wake up and get back in the rhythm of things!
1. Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? For the most part, school was easy, despite the fact that we moved frequently – some years I only attended 4 schools and some years as many as 8 – my father was an asbestos worker and we had to go where the work was. The biggest problem I had was “fitting in”; I was shy, and tall for my age, but ultimately it worked out. Until I hit algebra – then it was impossible. I simply do not think that way and I struggled through ending up with a final grade of C. The lowest grade I got in any subject, ever.
2. What is your favorite animal? Oh gosh. Domestic animals – probably dog, followed by cat. African wild animals – giraffe? They are so very graceful and exotic looking. More common wild animals – maybe deer, with their long legs and big brown eyes. There are so many beautiful animals that it’s hard to choose.
3. If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? I do have to have my vision corrected and for a few years I had contacts, although they did not work as well for me as glasses because I have astigmatism. I hated glasses resting on the bridge of my nose, so I wore the contacts, but they really were a pain in the neck with the cleaning process and at night I had to remove them to drive because lights just smeared so badly. Now I wear glasses whenever I really want to see – which is all day, every day.
4. List: Name at least five television shows (past or present) you enjoyed?
Hill Street Blues
The West Wing
Last Tango in Halifax
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful The Gracious One came through her surgery with no problems. She fell and shattered her elbow – the doctor said it was the worst he’d seen with 21 bits of bones scattered about, which made it necessary to insert a small plate and some screws. Someone told her she’s “all screwed up”.
I am looking forward to a quiet week, hoping the wildfires become controlled and the smoke in the air diminishes.
I wish you a week filled with enough.
