I got this from over at Karen’s. Won’t you play along too?
March 30th Questions:
1. Who would you rather be seated next to on a daylong bus trip: an irritating talker or a quiet starer? What’s your rationale? Tell us about your most horrifying and/or uncomfortable travel trip.
It would depend on how I felt that day and what mood I was in. However, I think I’d rather sit next to a quiet starer because I’d be so much less irritated. Better to be potentially bored than irritated. And, I’d be able to get whatever book I brought with read.
2. If time wasn’t a factor or your physical health weren’t an issue, would you rather be a member of a world championship sports’ team or be the champion of an individual sport? Why? Which sport would you choose? Why?
I’ll pick a sport where you could be essentially both! I’d be a member of USET. And since this is fantasy, I’d be both a dressage rider and a jumper. I think the answers are fairly self explanatory to anyone who has been reading this blog.
3. Would you accept $1,000,000 to leave the country and never set foot in it again? Explain, please. Is money or love more important to you? How much money would it take for you to step away from your current life?
I’m not so sure that a cool Mil would be enough to live on for the rest of my life. Then again, maybe I’d move to Uruguay and it would be enough.
Love is what’s important in my life. I think I’ve already proven that in this marriage. Just a year ago we didn’t have any money or a place to live as CP had been laid off and our rental had been foreclosed on. We hit hard times, but we made it through to the other side, which has been more abundant than our life before those hard times.
I’d step away from my life, as long as my immediate family went with me. I don’t have a set dollar figure, but there’s not a whole heck of a lot going on in my life right now. As long as my family and I could have some adventures and there was enough money for CP to write full time for a couple of years, why not? I’m not sure there’d be anything to hold us back.
4. Which sex do you think has it easier in our culture? Have you ever wished you were of the opposite sex? If so, list your reasons. If not, tell us why you like being the male/female you are now?
I haven’t enough time to really consider this question. After all, it’s a Monday Morning Meme, not a Sometime This Week Meme. So, I will answer the part that I have considered and is easiest for me.
For about 3 days, once a month I wish I were no longer female. During this time, I’d not care if I was a guy, an alien or a parrot. Just as long as I didn’t have to deal with cramps, I’d be a happy camper.
