Would you prefer to receive a unicycle, bicycle, tricycle or motorcycle?
Um, none of the above. My balance is g-o-n-e. Even a tricycle sounds threatening.
How about a nice little convertible sports car? An MG or a classic Mercedes? No? Then … never mind.
What is one thing you’d like to accomplish this year?
Survive. I want to be here next year!
What was one of the highlights of 2016 for you?
Arizona — all two and a half weeks of it — was one long high point.
Election night was the lowest point of the decade, not merely the year.
Would you prefer to fly a kite or fly in a hot air balloon?
Oh, I’ve wanted to go up in a hot air balloon forever. It’s one of the very few things I’ve always wanted to do and I’ve just never been in the right place at the right time. I did go gliding, though, when I was in England. That was totally ultra super cool!
There a company that offers tours of Europe in hot air balloons. Not surprisingly, it’s a bit pricey for us … but that would be a definitely dream come true! In the meantime, I’d settle for any little hot air balloon ride … anywhere.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Mostly, I’m celebrating the freedom from celebrating. And we seem to be finally getting over the virus that has haunted us for the past month, coming and going. Remarkably, I’m very pleased to have a real vacuum. I never knew how much we needed it. You sort of get used to the dirt.
Next week, Garry and I are going to afford pedicures for both of us. We deserve it.
