Not so serious answers to serious questions - day 167

17 June 2010
By now you've figured that I distract myself (and you) from what's happening in life until I get my head around it sometimes and usually do that getting to know myself a little better. No greater way than asking random questions about who I am and what life is really all about.
So, I found these questions floating around the net and I'm sure they are supposed to be answered seriously ... but it's so cold that my toes are aching, I should have been on a date tonight but he's gone AWOL and 'project me' is sounding like a bit of a stuck record ... so why not do the one thing I know I can do ... Laugh at life!!!
Oh ... before I get swept away ... there's adult stuff in here and of course there is, there are questions about wishes and wants and what do adults want? Nudge ... wink!

Do you push the elevator button more than once?? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? ... I don't push at all. I'm scared of elevators so when I'm forced to go in I tuck my head into the armpit of the person I'm with and tell them to hurry up and push the damn button.

Why are you, you? ... Because no one would swap with me.

Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? ... of course I have! Someone to talk to and cook for all the time!

  1. See, I wish the majority of the blogs I look at would just be sincere in what they say. I think thats why I keep coming back here because not only is the information and facts you provide useful, you also keep it "real"

    1. That is so cool. Thank you very much! It's always a tough thing to just let go and let the writing flow when blogging!! I think it's the least calculated thing a person can do!
