Sunday Stealing - 1/30/2017

A week has passed by again. I had a pretty good week and I've another post coming to share some incredible photos I took...stay tuned.

Today is my day late post with answers to:


Sunday Stealing: The Cool Guy Questions 


1.) When was the first time you ever swore or said something profane?  I was a young teen and I don't remember what I said but considering my parents swore, I don't think it shocked anyone.

2.) Have you ever had unrequited feelings for someone?/Have you ever been friendzoned? Never.  I have had friends with benefits but that was mutual. 

3.) What's a false assumption a lot of people have about you? That there is nothing wrong with me because you can't see the pain that comes with Fibromyalgia.  

4.) Have you ever questioned your sexuality? No.

5.) If you could bring one person back from the dead, who would it be and why? My husband. He was such an amazing man and he taught me so much about myself and gave me confidence which let me excel in my life.

6.) What did you do on December 12th last year? I can't remember yesterday, let alone a month and a half ago. 

7.) When was the last time you truthfully told someone you hated them? Never. I truly "hate" hatred. 

8.) What is your opinion on this song? What about this song? I got a "removed" notice when I clicked on them.

9.) In less than four sentences, describe the entire plot of the last book you read. Four people in senior apartment complex become entwined in a plot to prove an employee is a thief and a thug. Enemies become friends. Love blooms.  

10.) Describe the appearance of the most untrustworthy person you can think of (they can be a person you've met or a made up person). Are they male or female or neither? What about their appearance makes them untrustworthy? Female. Shifty eyes. 

11.) What is the most cringe-worthy thing you've ever seen? When I was 18, I saw two young boys run off a bus, run in front of it and were hit by a car. It was awful. One brother picked up his bloodied head and kept calling for his brother, who was about 10 feet away from him and not moving (I learned he passed away) 

12.) What is your biggest regret? That I could have done more with and for my father in his last two years.

13.) Do you have any cousins? When was the last time you saw them? I have a bunch of cousins. I saw my cousin Eileen at my mother's almost two years ago. I hadn't seen her in many, many years.

14.) Describe the worst birthday you've ever had. My 50th. My ex didn't even acknowledge that it was the big "50" while he made sure every single person in his family celebrate big numbers with a party.  

15.) When was the last time someone provoked you to the point of violence? When I was very young. 

16.) OH NOES!!!! Someone has gotten you to drink a truth potion and now you have to truthfully answer every question you are asked!!! What's the worst possible question someone could ask you? This is not the forum for that answer..LOL. 

17.) Describe, in detail, your first serious relationship. Describe how it ended.I met a guy when I was in high school. He was out of school already and working. We were both so in love for the first time. We even got engaged. I was 15 mind you! After a year and a half my big brother came over to the house and started lecturing me about how I needed to travel and see the world before even thinking about settling down. How I was throwing away my life and was just way too young. It worked because I couldn't stop thinking about his words. I was up all night really "hearing" him in my head. The next day I broke up with the poor guy. I broke his heart but it was the right thing to do for me. 

18.) Introduce your best friend. Tell the story of how you met. Kathy lived diagonally behind me but I went to Catholic school. She and another girl down the street were standing on a hill watching me walk up carrying my very heavy book bag. They were sizing me up and Kathy asked me what was in the bag. I stopped to show her. I was 6. We've been friends ever since.50 years ago. 

19.) To the introduced friend, has our interviewee lied in any of these questions? Are you surprised by any of these answers? She doesn't go on the computer but I know she remembers this as well. 

20.) To finish up, what is your biggest irrational fear and how did you get it?
Fear of deep water. My father held me in a pool when I was very young and told me he was going to dunk me, which he did. He forgot to tell me to hold my breath. I became terrified of deep water. I'm ok now in a swimming pool but I'm terrified of the ocean and you probably won't ever find me on a cruise. 


Until next time, remember...

    1. More text books than any 6 year old should ever have to carry! I had homework in each one. My friend was shocked at how heavy it was.

  2. #1 is weird to me; who would remember that?
    #2 - I got friendzoned plenty of times in HS and College, but I also friendzoned a lot of guys, so it turned out pretty even!
    #13 - I have 21 first cousins, all on my mom's side (she was 1 of 8 kids). The last time I saw one of them was at an aunt's funeral two years ago. Most live far away.

    1. Wow. 21 first cousins. I thought I had a bunch!! Lol

  3. I remember my first 'bad' word. It was the big one. And my grandmother's neighbors heard me. YIKES. LOL My biggest regret is tied by two- that I would have spent more time with my grandparents as a teenager and that hadn't turned down my college love. Paying for that choice to this very day. Anyway...:)

    1. But then you wouldn't have your lovelies! Look at it that way :-)

    2. I know but when do I get some personal happy? Just call me Ms. Selfish. :)

    3. You aren't selfish at all. You've sacrificed a lot for your family. Now it should be your time to find true happiness. Only you can decide when and how. Love ya lady!!

  4. Now you have me thinking about my cousins. I guess the last time I saw any of them was at my dad's funeral, which was twenty-five or so years ago. We completely lost touch with some cousins many years ago when their mother--my mom's sister--died. I say "we" because I don't think my siblings know what happened to them either. I don't even know how many first cousins I have without studying a family tree, but it's a lot.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I only just met 4 of my cousins in the past 5 years and I'm 56. Our family was not the closest bunch.

    2. My mother told me once that we were a close family. I thought she had to be joking, but she wasn't. We aren't close in the least.

    3. It's kind of sad isn't it?

  5. "Describe your first serious relationship"? In whose opinion must it have been serious?

    1. In your opinion is what counts in my book!

    2. That would open it up to scars that never really healed...

  6. My parents cursed terribly, so it is no wonder I did (and do). I hate that I do it but it seems ingrained.

    1. Funny isn't it? How we follow suit with our environment growing up?

  7. OHMYGOSH... number 11. That is so tragic. So horrible. It reminded me of the fatal event I witnessed when I was a kid. A little boy (must have been about 2 or 3) fell off a second story balcony and crashed into the cement stairs below leading into the basement. He was all bloodied and crying. His mother ran down to him screaming hysterically. He was taken to the hospital but died soon after. I'll never forget those anguished sounds. I shiver every time I think of that day.

    1. Wow, Martha, that too is so tragic. It's sad that we had to witness these events. I give the paramedics and ER workers so much credit for dealing with these tragedies every day. I couldn't do it.

  8. Your answers were very moving, about the bus accident, and the relationship, and the fear of water is not irrational given that you had such an introduction to it.

    I have a huge amount of first cousins, in the range of yours and almost all from one side. I loved having cousins after not having any from five to thirteen years of age.

    1. I'm glad you liked my answers ZK. Writing these posts with unexpected questions is quite interesting. I never know what I'm going to remember.

  9. Another interesting set of questions and answers! I admire your truthfulness in these sessions, I must say.

    1. Thank you for that. I have always been one to tell things the way they are or were. Sometimes to my detriment, as certain people want to use it against me :-(
