Like many other things, I think questions need the validation of being answered. Today Embeecee asked some questions that I’m about to validate. Just because. I can. I want to. Here goes.
When making an entrance in to a party, do you make your presence known? Do you slip in and look for someone you know? Do you sneak in quietly and find a safe spot to roost?
I would slip in, find my host/hostess and say hello. Then I would look for someone I know.
Do you like eggs? If so, what’s your favorite style in which they are prepared? Scrambled, over easy, hard or soft boiled etc…?
Yes, I do. How they’re cooked depends on my mood – just like many things in life. Scrambled less often then over medium, unless I’m putting them in a wrap. Hard boiled for snacking or in salads.
What is your strongest sense? If you had to give one up, which would it be?
Not sure I know. My sense of smell is not good, and I don’t think I have particularly sensitive taste buds. I think maybe instinct – is that a sense?
What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?
My evening glasses of wine.
How has your birth order/characteristics of siblings affected you?
I’m not sure it has. I was nearly nine years older than my oldest brother, so by the time they were at an age that we might have spent time together, I was out of the house.
If you could restore one broken relationship, which would it be?
I can’t think of any broken relationships I’d want to restore. Friends I’ve lost contact with over the years and moves, maybe – at least two or three of them. Broken relationships I’ve had were broken with cause and I don’t believe you can go back with any success.
How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?
Forgive maybe – forget, not likely. If you can’t admit you’re wrong, I’d probably perceive you as either too arrogant or too insecure to face reality. No one is right all the time. Everyone has to apologize sometimes.
When did you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long term result? Conversely, are you close with anyone now that you really disliked at first?
I’m very reserved when I first meet people, and it usually takes awhile to decide whether or not I feel safe enough with them (i.e., trust them enough) to be friends. I think my perception of people is pretty good, so if I feel uncomfortable with them or just don’t really care for them, it’s rare for that to change. Rare, if at all.
What was the best news you ever received?
I think that would be that my babies were born healthy and sound. Although if I were to win a millon dollars that might bump it to second place. Maybe. No, I don’t think so, but it could create a tie for first place.
In what area of your life are you immature? Probably in my financial wisdom, or lack thereof. I’m working on it.
When sleeping: Fan or No Fan OR noise or no background noise? Fan is okay, as is no noise. I bought a sound machine for the ocean sounds, which I love in real life, when I was having a period of not sleeping well, but it disrupted my sleep even more. Apparently it has to be a consistent, monotone type of noise if it’s not quiet. Unless it’s the real ocean. Not sure that makes any sort of sense or logic, but that’s what it is.
