How do you tell if someone has a sense of humor?
By listening to what they say, and noticing how they react to situations. A person with a sense of humour will often find a lighter side to an annoying or ridiculous situation.
What sort of music do you prefer?
When I was young it was all rock music but now, I also enjoy some jazz and some classical, but not opera. I like instrumentals so I can really hear the sounds of each instrument. The modern music I prefer comes mainly from the sixties, seventies and eighties.
Thoughts on gravy or ‘sauce”? Yea or nay?
I don’t actually dislike sauce or gravy but I usually don’t have them on my food. I have been put off gravy because many places we’ve eaten at smother the food in thick gravy. I wouldn’t mind a little on the plate but I want to taste the food, not the gravy. Naomi enjoys it but even she has said that the last couple of pubs we ate at used way too much. I make it for her but I put it in a gravy boat so that she can put on the amount she wants. As for sauce, I don’t use tomato sauce or BBQ sauce on meat for the same reason, I want to taste the meat not the sauce. Also, because I am messy and I know I will spill some on myself. I do like a little tartare sauce on fish as long as I can add it myself.
Would you enjoy a hot air balloon ride?
I have mixed feelings about that. I’ve always thought hot air balloons look beautiful and that it would be marvellous to ride in one. Two things worry me. Getting in and getting out, especially the latter. I’m not built for climbing into a basket and fear a bumpy landing. I’m not sure how I would go in the air. I am not scared of heights but I am scared of falling. I don’t know if the basket would make me feel secure enough. I think it would as I’m short so it would likely be more than waist high for me.
In any case I’ll never know because I would never be able to afford to do it.
GRATITUDE SECTION (As always, optional)
What do you think is widely taken for granted?
Those of us with secure lives take many things for granted. Other people, our health, having a roof over our heads, having enough to eat, peace. Take your pick.
