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!

These are from a site called Thought Provoking Questions..

1. When was the last time you tried something new?'s been awhile.  Maybe when I got my Instant Pot?

2. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?
Nobody, really.  I'm a one-er, as my cousin used to say.

3. What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?
This too shall pass.

4. What gets you excited about life?
Not really anything right now, at least in the world in general, but closer to home, I am very excited to think that just maybe we have found the perfect place for my mother to live out her final years.

5. What life lesson did you learn the hard way?
When they say that "grief is a journey," they really mean it!

6. What do you wish you spent more time doing five years ago?
I can't think of anything.

7. Do you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know?
I probably should ask more questions.  I am more a settler, though.

8. Who do you love and what are you doing about it?
I love my family and I try to show them how much I love them when the occasion(s) arise.

9. What’s a belief that you hold with which many people disagree?
The toilet paper goes over the top, not under the bottom.

10. What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?
Hear better, with the help of hearing aids.

11. Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Depends on the person, but the ability to cry in front of people when you are upset about something shows that you care and I consider that a sign of strength.

12. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
Can't think of anything.

13. Do you celebrate the things you do have?
I appreciate them; I don't celebrate them.  (In fact, sometimes they are a big pain in the neck!)

14. What is the difference between living and existing?
My mother exists.  With Alzheimers she is incapable of caring about things, following things, planning things, wanting to do things, etc.  She just is.  I have not yet reached that point.

15. If not now, then when?
When the time is right.

16. Have you done anything lately worth remembering?
Oh Lord.  That's why I have this journal.  If it's worth remembering, it's somewhere in the archives of Funny the Word.  The latest thing worth remembering is the very nice funeral service we went to yesterday.

17. What does your joy look like today?
Joy today is watching Ned and Jeri making countless trips up and downtairs moving furniture and books.  So many books!

18. Is it possible to lie without saying a word?
Oh definitely.

19. If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?
I'm kind to myself, so I think it would not affect our friendship.

20. Which activities make you lose track of time?
Doing anything on the computer.  Web surfing can take an inordinate amount of time, for instance.  Designing these pages is time consuming.


Maybe this is 1/4 of the books in the upstairs room


I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
Remember to sign your name in the "Name" box or else you will show up as "anonymous"
(unless you want to be anonymous, that is!)
