10 Silly Questions

Hey Kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s have a little fun, today.

Here are ten random questions.

I’ll answer them first, and then I’m hoping you’ll play along, too.

Just copy and paste a few – or the whole bunch – into the comments section; delete my answers, and write your own!

Ready? ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

Closed. I like to see all drawers and cabinet doors closed as well. None of them are so neat that they should be on display!!

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from the hotel?

Sometimes . . .
And when we buy new pillows, we remove the tags, too! Shhhh!

3. Do you like to use post-it notes?

I especially like the very small ones โ€“ they make great bookmarks! If you think youโ€™ll want to return to a specific spot in a book or magazine, place a post-it right there and find it easily next time!

4. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

I assume this means the โ€œtopโ€ sheet, and my answer is “tucked in” – but only at the foot of the bed. (Iโ€™m old enough to remember a time when bottom sheets were not “fitted”. Boy, were they ever tough to keep tucked in!)

5. How many languages can you speak?

Two – English and French (4 years study)
I also studied Latin for 4 years. Contrary to popular belief, Latin offers many benefits to a student! For example, the majority of words in English (and other languages) can be traced back to Latin roots. If youโ€™ve learned Latin, itโ€™s much easier to decipher unfamiliar words that you encounter – including math and science terms.

6. Which are better Legos or Lincoln Logs?

Legos!!! The creative possibilities are endless!

7. Take a vitamin daily?

Most days, though we sometimes miss taking them on weekends if we’re really busy.

8. Wear slippers?

Oh yeah! The minute my feet cross the threshold โ€“ I take off my shoes and โ€œslipโ€ into those slippers. ๐Ÿ˜‰

9. First concert?

The Beach Boys โ€“ not only was I young then โ€“ so were they!!! lol

10. Can you swim well?
Yes. I learned very early, and I think thatโ€™s the key. They say swimming is the best exercise there is! By the way, who are โ€œtheyโ€, and how do they know so much? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hugs,

    I have dogs. Dogs who eat. They eat food, they eat MY food, they eat chocolate bars, they eat plants, but lo… they eat shoes. They eat underwear. They love armpits and butt flaps. So that would be a closed ๐Ÿ™‚ The only issue is you walk through the closet to the washroom, so I have a tendency of sleep walking INTO the door.

    2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from the hotel?

    Did you know they EXPECT you too? Upper class hotels even expect you to take the robe – that way every time you put it on you think of them. I read a whole article about it in a magazine… the bar fridge *isn’t* free, though. Darn.

    3. Do you like to use post-it notes?

    Not really, the dogs eat them, too… paper cuts in the intestine sounds painful.

    I am loving your answers, here!

    Too cute and too funny! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. 1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
    I have no closet doors. Basic safety measure. I cannot believe that, in this day and age of increased Boogeyman Awareness, well-meaning parents are still constructing nurseries with light-blocking closet doors! People! Dark closets are the natural breeding ground of Boogeys! It is a science FACT.

    2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from the hotel?
    Well, yes. If it’s shampoo worth using. What, you think they’d prefer we left them a bunch of half-used shampoo trial sizes? Eew.

    3. Do you like to use post-it notes?
    *looks askance at Illustrator’s market bulging at the seams with added Post-It pages*
    …Mmmmmmayybe.

    4. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
    Not only do I sleep with my sheets tucked out, I’ve never understood the point of tucking them in! They have to be untucked and shaken out before bed every night anyway, why go to all the trouble of flattening them in between?
    And yes, they DO need to be shaken out every night. When you curl up with your first pillow-scorpion from failing to heed this truth, do not blame me.

    5. How many languages can you speak?
    I dare say I *can* speak any of them, except maybe !Kung! and similar. Humans tend to rely on human accessible sounds, you know?
    I’ve actually *studied* Japanese and Spanish, enough to be bi-ignorant! I can read Spanish pretty well (those Latinate roots! Which I learned from English, heh) and speak it well enough to get around. I understand Japanese well enough to keep from embarrassing myself, keeping in mind that I am almost impossible to embarrass.

    6. Which are better Legos or Lincoln Logs?
    Neither! Tinker Toys forever! I want to make jewelry with those wooden wheels!

    7. Take a vitamin daily?

    I should. I forget.

    8. Wear slippers?
    When I’m free from outside-shodding, and not barefoot, yes.
    Apparently, going barefoot indoors was once considered gauche? But I was raised to consider it rude to stay shod indoors. I still have to force myself not to unshoe when I enter a house.

    9. First concert?
    ..Defined how? Something at the Kerrville Folk Festival, probably. First concert I *remember* was…opera? Some school Cultural Exposure thing.

    10. Can you swim well?
    I’m no Michael Phelps, and I don’t swim for speed– but I can float around happily for hours.
