Sunday Stealing - From Smellyann #ThatsMe!
24 February 2018
Welcome back, you guys! Look, I'm famous! I even (jokingly) pointed this out to my fam, and showed them the site, and they were all excited for me. Hee! That cracked me up. Anyway, this week's questions are from a questionnaire Yours Truly found on Pinterest. Thanks for the feature, Bev!
Let's get started:
What is more difficult for you, looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when they are telling you how they feel.
Oh, I have a very hard time looking someone in the eyes when I'm telling them how I feel. I'm very shy that way. It's a wonder, sometimes, that I can tell them at all.
Think of the last time you were REALLY angry. WHY were you angry? Do you still feel the same way?
This is so stupid but, it's the last time I can remember being REALLY angry, and it's embarrassing: I had gone out late at night to WinCo to get some sushi a couple weeks ago. I hadn't eaten much all day and was starving, and it was the only thing that sounded even remotely palatable to my capricious tastes. I ate half and put the rest in the fridge, telling everyone not to touch. Next day, I went to finish it, and couldn't find it - the package was in the garbage. WHAT?! I flipped OUT. Turns out, I had gotten up later and finished it myself. My short-term memory has been eaten up by whatever the heck is wrong with me, and I could not remember even getting up at all. Needless to say, I owed everybody a big, fat apology! (Fortunately/unfortunately, they're used to it by now and quickly forgave my outburst.)
You are on a flight from Honolulu to Chicago non-stop. There is a fire in the back of the plane. You have enough time to make one phone call. Who do you call? What do you tell them?
Oh, gosh, really?! That is a super long flight. I'm guessing it's right over the ocean and not where we could make an emergency landing, huh? I'd call my husband and tell him I loved him, and tell him to re-read the book we wrote together so he would have direct parenting input from me on raising our brood.
You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? What do you do with your remaining days? Would you be afraid?
I hate these questions! LOL! I would tell my family. I would make sure we were able to get somewhere warm near the water, where I have always felt most at peace. I think more than afraid of death, I would be afraid of how the Hubs and kids would manage without me. I've seen what happens when I'm in the hospital for a week! shudder
You can have one of the following two things. Which do you choose? Why? Love and Trust.
I choose Love. I think you can have Trust without any degree of Love, but I don't believe you can have Love without some degree of Trust. It just has to be there, or you don't fully have Love.
You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you that if you are late just one more time you are fired. Do you take the time to save the dog’s life? Why? Why not?
Of course I would save the dog. There will always be other jobs. I'd never be able to live with myself for just walking by and letting a dog drown, though.
Would you rather be hurt by the one you trust the most or the one you love the most?
Well, actually, there is a difference. I have been hurt by both. If they are not the same person, I would rather be hurt by the one I trust the most. Nothing surprises me anymore.
Your best friend confesses that he/she has feelings for you more than just friendship. He/she is falling in love with you. What do you say?
I would say that I am flattered, but honestly, I just don't feel that same kind of attraction.
Think of the last person you know who died. You have the chance to give them 1 hour more of life back, but you have to give up one year of yours. Do you do it? Why? Or Why not?
Of course, I've known people since who have died, but since I just dreamed about my grandpa last night I'm writing about him. I would absolutely give him back an hour of life - with one caveat: I get to spend it with him. I loved that man so much.
Are you the kind of friend that you would want to have as a friend?
Probably not. I don't know, maybe? I'm kind of obnoxious sometimes.
Does love = sex?
Your boss tells your co-worker that they have to let them go because of work shortage, and they are the newest employee. You have been there much longer. Your co-worker has a family to support and no other means of income. Do you go to your boss and offer to leave the company? Why or Why not?
Maybe? But probably not. No mention of my family of five, no mention of how hard I have worked all that time in the job, etc. Call me heartless, but I'm not chomping at the bit to give up my job for this person.
When was the last time you told someone HONESTLY how you felt regardless of how difficult it was for you to say? What did you have to tell the person?
I wrote this post to tell my dad what I needed to say but couldn't say to him any other way. Of course, I tell my hubs and kids how I feel easily, all the time, but that rarely counts in this regard. I've had someone else I fibbed to in order to avoid conflict, because I basically just do not have the energy for that person's ire anymore.
What would be (or what was) harder for you to tell a member of the opposite/same sex – you love them or that you do not love them back?
The latter. I have had trouble doing that.
So I kind of hated answering this one. I'm sorry! Don't hate me if you didn't like it either; I merely pinned it to one of my Pinboards! lol
Okay, back to the Olympics. Ciao!
