Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud)  Cheers to all of us thieves!

From Questions for the Game of Life

1. If you could eliminate a single type of insect in the world, which would it be?
The cockroach.  I'm sure they do somebody some good and kill other bad insects, but I hate them, especially when we meet, unexpectedly at 3 a.m. in the bathroom.  (Fortunately that doesn't happen very often.)

2. If you could have personally witnessed one event in history, what would you want to have seen?
I wish I had been in the front row for Judy Garland's first concert at Carnegie Hall.  Not exactly a "great historic event" but still...

3. If you had to paint your entire home inside and out a single color other than white, what would you pick?
Probably some shade of blue.  It seems to be the color I choose whenever I have to get something painted.

4. If you could decide what will be written on your gravestone, what would you have inscribed.
LOL.  Well, our sons share a grave that on it says "Funny the World," and that would be nice on mine too.

5. If you could have a secret listening device in any one room in the world, what room would you put it in?
The oval office!!!!!

6. If you could have any music group that no longer exists play at your birthday party, who would you want?
No question.  Lawsuit.  The band 3 of our kids were in for 10 years, which "dis-banded" in 1996, when a record deal didn't come through and people were starting to marry, and have spouses that didn't like having their spouse busy every weekend.  Sure would be nice to have them together again.

7. If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?
Human canon THERE is a canon ball for you!

8. If you could master one type of cuisine, which one would you choose?
There was a time when I was a fair-to-middlin' Chinese cook, thanks  to Martin Yan (in the years before he was "discovered" and could still be afforded!)  If I still did a lot of cooking, I wouldn't mind a refresher course or two.  Either that or perfecting the art of a pastry chef.

9. If you had to have one piece of music softly playing in your mind for the rest of your life, what would you want it to be?
Cesar Franck's Sonata in A for violin and piano.

10. If you could ensure one single personality trait in your children, what would you want it be? 
Kindness and consideration of others.  I think we managed to do that.  I'm very proud of our kids.

11. If you could resolve any single dispute, anywhere in the world, what would you solve?
I would throw a blanket of peace over the Middle East, but I don't want to get in Jared's way.  I understand that's his job.

12. If you could be a guest on any talk show, which would you like to be on?
Oh, it would be fun to be on Ellen, as long as I didn't have to play any of her games!

13. If you were to be a news correspondent posted to any foreign country, where would you like to go?
Somewhere peaceful.  Maybe Vatican City.

14. If you could have been on the Supreme court for any single case in its history, which would you select?
Obergefell v. Hodges, the gay marriage decision.

15. If you could pick one person from history to live next door to you, who would you pick?
W.S. Gilbert, 'cause I've been to his house (which is now a hotel) and if I lived next to him, that would be some high livin' for sure. 

Also, I would hope we might have an interesting conversation or two.  He is a hero of mine.


Slightly less than one-thousand red roses

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!

Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear -- it wasn't me! --
so if you don't see your comment, it's because it's awaiting approval.  Sorry 'bout that!
