Welcome back to
which originated on the WTIT Blog with Bud
Weiser. 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. You may have heard the
expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to
credit the blog that we stole it from, if possible. We also provide a link
to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of
saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more
relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best
questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked
questions from a previously post. Cheers to all of us thieves
Here are some
Smellyann found on Pinterest.
1. What is more
difficult for you, looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone
how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when they are telling you how
I don't know that either is difficult. I make a concerted effort to
look in people's eyes if we are discussing something serious.
2. Think of the last time you were REALLY angry. WHY were you angry?
Do you still feel the same way?
What was the last thing #45 said/did? I get so often REALLY angry at our
president, it's difficult to pinpoint "the last time." It's fair to
say whatever it was, I am still angry about it!
3. You are on a flight from Honolulu to Chicago non-stop. There is a
fire in the back of the plane. You have enough time to make one phone call.
Who do you call? What do you tell them?
Probably not Ned or Walt because they rarely answer their phones. Probably
Jeri because she has a better chance of answering....or maybe I'd have
to leave a message on HER phone too. (We aren't big cell phone users around
here and more often than not don't answer the phone, for one reason or
4. You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you
have approximately one month to live. Do you tell anyone/everyone you are
going to die? What do you do with your remaining days? Would you be afraid?
Are you kidding? It would be the subject of my blog entry that
night...and the rest of the nights while I could still write. I'd be
somewhat afraid, but after all the deaths I've experienced, part of me would
be very curious to find out what's next.
5. You can have one of the following two things. Which do you choose?
Why? Love and Trust.
If you truly love someone, don't you also trust them?
6. You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog
drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you
that if you are late just one more time you are fired. Do you take the time
to save the dog’s life? Why? Why not?
There is no way I would leave a drowning dog just to get to work on time.
No job is that important.
7. Would you rather be hurt by the one you trust the most or the one you
love the most?
See #5. If it was someone I trusted it would also be someone I loved
and, sadly, I know what that feels like
8. Your best friend confesses that he/she has feelings for you more than
just friendship. He/she is falling in love with you. What do you (or did
Thanks, but no thanks.
9. Think of the last person you know who died. You have the chance to
give them 1 hour more of life back, but you have to give up one year of
yours. Do you do it? Why? Or Why not?
Smellyann, where did you get these questions? LOL. The last
funeral we attended (there are so many of them it's hard to remember who it
was) was probably a former colleague of Walt's so the answer is no, I would
not. Actually, I think having one hour of your life back would be
worse than not because you'd realize how little time you had left.
10. Are you the kind of friend that you would want to have as a friend?
I think so. Not everyone agrees.
11. Does love =
Not necessarily, There are a lot of people I have loved deeply without
anything physical as part of it.
12. Your boss tells your co-worker that they have to let them go because
of work shortage, and they are the newest employee. You have been there
much longer. Your co-worker has a family to support and no other means of
income. Do you go to your boss and offer to leave the company? Why or Why
So much depends on the circumstances. Ideally, I would have enough
years in that I could retire. LOL.
13. When was the last time you told someone HONESTLY how you felt
regardless of how difficult it was for you to say? What did you have to
tell the person?
I can't remember but whenever it was, there is no way I would share it here!
14. What would be (or what was) harder for you to tell a member of the
opposite/same sex – you love them or that you do not love them back.
Either situation is terrifying. Fortunately that has not been a
problem I needed to deal with in many, many years.
