Hi! I'm your host Bev Sykes of the blog "Funny the World". . 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!

Thought Provoking Questions

1. Do you own your things or do your things own you?
I hope that I own my things.  I can't think of any "thing" that owns me.  Well, except maybe Polly.

2. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?
Having watched my mother over the past several years, I would MUCH rather never be able to make new ones, rather than forget the past years.

3. How do you deal with someone in a position of power who wants you to fail?
That only happened once.  I caved.  In the end, the laugh was on them.

4. What do you have that you cannot live without?

5. When you close your eyes what do you see?
Nothing.  When I move my head to and from the window, the "nothing" lightens.  Sometimes there are floaters present, but not today.

6. What sustains you on a daily basis?

7. What are your top five personal values?
Loyalty, dependability, good humor, compassion, service to others

8. Why must you love someone enough to let them go?
If you have to keep them in a stranglehold when they want to go, that's not love.

9. Do you ever celebrate the green lights?
You mean like stoplights?  Actually, no.  I enjoy being stopped if I'm listening to something on CD, the radio, or an audio book.

10. What personal prisons have you built out of fears?
I haven't had to deal with it, but the more things change, and the more catastrophes occur, the less I want to get on an airplane again.

11. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?
Too late now.  Thankfully, I have done most of the things that I wanted to do in life--and much more than I ever dreamed possible!

12. Why are you, you?
If I weren't me, who would I be?

13. If you haven’t achieved it yet what do you have to lose?
I don't really understand this question.

14. What three words would you use to describe the last three months of your life?
Mother, theater, lassitude

15. Is it ever right to do the wrong thing?  Is it ever wrong to do the right thing?

16. How would you describe ‘freedom’ in your own words?
Able to live as I please within the basic rules of society, make my own decisions about my life and my body

17. What is the most important thing you could do right now in your personal life?
Buy a mothers day card and go visit my mother.

18. If you could ask one person, alive or dead, only one question, who would you ask and what would you ask?
I would ask Paul if he meant to kill himself or if it was an accident -- and is he happier now?

19. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
If I were younger, I would say working with animals in some way.  But at 76, I would love to be paid to watch TV, write, and eat.


Mothers Day of yore....yores and yores ago.
