I C U 2
1. What attracts you to a blog–makes you read it again and again or subscribe?
I had to think about this one for a bit. I’ve decided it is passion. And descriptions. And when it fits the topic and post, a sense of humor. Does the writer feel passionate about what they are writing about and are they able to describe the topic enough so that I can form an image? That’s what grabs me.
2. Life is short. What do you still need to get done before your life ends?
Getting my genealogy organized enough so that it makes sense to others, not just names, places and dates, but the story that is illustrated with charts and pictures. This is what I’m working on now. The other is getting all of my photos into organized photo albums.
3. Which pick up line are you most likely to use? (You must pick one)
a. You’re beautiful/handsome. Can I tell you that again next Saturday over dinner?
b. Are you a magician? Because whenever I look at you, everyone else disappears!
c. If I had a star for every time you brightened my day, I would be holding a galaxy.
d. I would say God bless you, but it looks like he already did.
A: it’s a compliment, an invitation to dinner and a hope for the outcome.
4. What makes you feel truly loved?
Paying attention to me. I don’t need a lot but I need something. I was traumatized from being ignored as a child. After I was molested twice, I stopped talking for a year each time and no one noticed. If I ask a question or comment on something, I need a response or I feel like I’m being ignored once again. Something my current partner doesn’t understand. But in all fairness, almost every partner I’ve had has done this. Maybe it’s a “guy” thing, but whatever it is, it’s not helpful for me.
5. What emotion do you experience the most?
Sadness, which verges on depression. Watching the animalist behavior of so many people just increases that sadness. It seems like for too many people, caring about others is beyond their abilities. Between refusing to wear a mask, or get vaccines, to demand that everything open because they want a haircut, to demanding the right to own guns to so many mass shootings and gun deaths to stealing (lately it’s wood), it’s distressing to wonder if we will survive as a society. But I’m reading a book that illustrates this behavior is nothing new. It just keeps repeating itself with each generation. And that is also distressing.
Bonus: In the word ‘scent’, which letter is silent? S or C?
“C”. If the S is silent it could be pronounced “kent”.
