1) Are you psychic in any way?
Not in any way whatsoever!
2) Are you a good dancer?
Not in any way whatsoever. Once at an early Lawsuit concert, some guy
shamed me into dancing in front of the group. I was mortified untll
Tom cam and rescued me. I have been forever grateful to him for that.
3) Are you a good singer?
I used to be fair. Sang in a number of choirs, but in my later years,
I have a range of less than an octave and no power at all.
4) Are you a good cook?
I'm a pretty good cook. I'm not afraid to try any recipe and have
cooked my share of gourmet meals in my day.
5) Are you a good artist?
Nope. There are a lot of artists in my family, but those artistic
genes skipped me and landed on my kids.
6) Are you a good listener?
I'd like to think so
7) Are you a good public speaker?
I am terrified of public speaking, but I did learn in my La Leche League
days that I am better extemporaneously than using a script. Still, the
last time I spoke "in public" was at my 70th birthday for the friends who
had come...and I couldn't speak more than 2 sentences without getting all
8) Are you a good babysitter?
I raised five children, so I think so!
9) Are you a good mechanic?
My son Paul and I once drove to SF and were supposed to add oil halfway
there and neither of us could find the oil tank. I also tried to
change a tire once and the car slipped off the jack in the mud.
10) Are you a good diplomat?
I'd like to think so but I've lost so many friends for reasons of which I am
unaware so I must not be.
11) Are you a good employee?
Sure. I'm loyal and a hard worker, though I haven't been employed for
many years now.
12) Are you a good dresser?
Nope. My fashion sense is slightly better than my artistic sense, but
not much. I pretty much live in sweats and Birkenstocks.
13) Are you a good swimmer?
At one time I was. I was surprised when I went swimming in Italy and
discovered that didn't have nearly the strength I had 20 years ago.
14) Are you a good skier?
No. I went skiing once and my boot fell apart, so I only made 2 runs
down the bunny slope.
15) Are you a good gift giver?
I love giving gifts and finding the perfect gift for someone, especially if
it's a surprise and not a special gift giving situation.
16) Are you a good musician?
No. Those genes went to our kids too.
17) Are you a good comedian?
I can be funny, but not as a comedienne.
18) Are you a good cleaner?
Bwahahahaha. Surely you jest.
19) Are you a good actor?
I was only in a play once and someone told me I wasn't bad (which does not
translate into "good"). I am afraid of performing in public.
20) Are you a good writer?
I hope so.
