The What's So Special Meme Questions
Merriam-Webster defines the word "special" as follows: being in some way superior, held in particular esteem, readily distinguishable from the same category, unique, being other than usual, or designed for a particular purpose or occasion.
1. Tell us about a special piece of cookware, dinnerware, or kitchen item in your home that has sentimental value.
I have a cookie jar that was in my
house all of my childhood. The paint is all gone now, but I still have it.
I haven't filled it in years, though (cookies get eaten too quickly)
I was wearing them yesterday -- smiley face earrings, which I bought after our son Paul died. Paul and I had a joke about smiley faces and always gave each other smiley gifts -- a gigantic candle, a smiley quilt, smiley ties, etc.
3. When you go out for a meal (yes, folks, those were the good 'ole days) do you make special requests having to do with food choices, extra condiments, seating arrangements, special instructions for how your food is cooked and the like? What are your special requests?
No. I'm very boring. I

unless it's a night when something special is on TV. Our nights are pretty
routine--eat dinner, watch Jeopardy and then something else, then Walt
goes upstairs and I watch TV until midnight or so. It will be a "special
night" if I can get to sleep. I don't have many special nights.
I got it yesterday -- a new Kindle.
Now I'm trying to learn how best to use it.
The last show I reviewed was in
March, Camelot. Then all theaters shut down so no more shows to
review, no more people to interview, no more feature articles to write.
Well, I don't usually drink wine and
if we have a special occasion it would just be a birthday or something like
that. Maybe when our daughter and her husband are able to fly out here
Lots of special reports this week.
The last one I heard before I started writing this was the morning's report by
the doctors taking care of the president.
She trained us for 10 years, but we finally know how to give special treatment to our Chihuahua
