  1. So if Santa brings you a drone what would you use it for?

  2. So, scary or not you really need to get yourself a drone. And living out in the country you’d be legally able to fly it too without any privacy laws coming into play!
    I’m with you on “slavery”. I still can’t understand how “normal” people thought it was okay. Makes me worry that if I’d lived back then I would have accepted it as “normal” too.

    • Dral, I don’t know how I would’ve survived during slavery. My mouth has always been my biggest enemy. I have–and continue to deal with racism in my own individual way. I speak very well for a man of color.

  5. Loved reading your questions 🙂 A time machine is something tempting, isn’t it. And yet it would scare me almost as much as drones do. Imagine what could be done if a time machine would end up in the wrong hands… If you feel inspired by answering weird questions please come over and have a go on mine. Apparently I’m to blame for Willow’s questions 😉 https://amommasview.wordpress.com/2016/06/02/questions-i-think-nobody-ever-asks/
