- What happened to cause you to discover ‘bullies” were real?
I honestly have no idea how to answer this question. I suppose I just gradually became aware that there were such people.
- Eavesdropping- When given the chance, how often do you eavesdrop? (this may be a similar question to what some folks said they’d do with an invisibility cloak)
My mother said that people who eavesdrop never hear anything good about themselves.
- Escalators, at one time, were the ‘next big thing’. When was the last time you rode an escalator?
I think I used one the last time we went to Burnie. A couple of weeks ago. I hate the things, I’ve always been slightly fearful of stepping onto them to go down, up doesn’t bother me. As I get older and use them less often I find myself even more fearful of missing a step and falling. I can’t step onto an escalator unless I count myself on so I try to avoid them where I can.
- Have you ever ‘let’ someone win in a sports competition or a board game? How did it turn out?
There is zero chance that I would ever be in the position of beating someone at a sports competition. As for board games Naomi usually beats me at Scrabble and Scattergories.
Melanie’s Muggle Questions:
I’m very short on time today (Sunday) so I’m borrowing from Rory and Sandmanjazz to fill the questions today:
Do our fears start with our DNA? (Credit to Rory)
I had never thought about that. Maybe they do but I am much more cowardly than other members of my family I’m sure.
If you could have your hair any colour for 24 hours, what colour would you choose? (Credit to Sandmanjazz)
If it could be done by magic or without the use of chemicals tested on animals I would choose to have my original hair colour before it went grey. I never wanted to change my natural colour. I chose not to colour it as the grey came in because firstly I didn’t want animals to suffer for my vanity and secondly because once you start colouring your grey you are kind of locked into it and have to keep on doing it.
When do you think a person gets old? (Credit to Rory)
When they think they are.
This weekend we sat on our balcony enjoying a bit of spring sunshine. We were grateful for the peace and quiet of this place where instead of traffic we hear birds and the sound of the sea. Spring flowers are starting to bloom and the beach is always a treasure. Here is a collage of things I’m grateful for.
