Do introverts join activities with the word “social” or “gathering” or “share” in them? Willingly? Who else thinks Chris has cast a spell over all of us?
Here are this week’s questions and my answers:
Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.
If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?
I’d like to think that everyone leads a satisfying life, but I know that isn’t true. I lead a satisfying life, primarily because my parents taught me to live within my means, financially, and not want what I don’t have. Understanding the concept of “enough” is a much more satisfactory way to live than always yearning for the newest or best. They also taught me that I soldier on, even when bad things happen, because no one except me is going to make it better. Having these strong principles to draw on during difficult times has made the good times that much sweeter. I have a coffee mug I drink from each morning that says “Life is Good”. That pretty much sums it up.
If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture? Please describe.
No-o-o-o-o! All my life I’ve thought, if I couldn’t be a human what would I want to be? The answer has always been a tree. A standing tree. A forever tree. Not a tree that is made into a book or furniture! No-o-o-o-o! Where are all the tree huggers when I need them?
Not sure whether to be a Michigan sugar maple or a California redwood or a Louisiana live oak.
You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with?
Dad. He’s resourceful and could probably get us out. If not, we’d pass the time playing imaginary golf, and he’d tell me lots of stories about his nearly-90 years of living. Without being annoyingly chatty.
