From sparksfromacombustiblemind come some questions. And since I don’t have any other brilliant thoughts, I figured I’d answer them!
I want to start out by answering the big question of the month for this household.
How is Garry doing?
Garry is fine for a guy recently out of surgery. The pain is past, but the imbalance is not. This is a common side effect of surgery to ears because that’s where our little gyroscope is.
That gyroscope is the thing that lets us keep our balance. He will regain balance eventually. I’m hoping sooner rather than later, but what will be will be.
He isn’t writing much because part of the lack of balance is linked to him having trouble finding the keys on the keyboard. This too shall pass.
So Garry isn’t driving and is uncomfortable on the stairs. I’d rather he not do anything that would cause him to fall, so basically, we aren’t doing much. Visitors are welcome, but we are not traveling.
Have you ever been in a food fight?
Do you count trying to feed a one-year-old baby?
How do you deliver bad news?
Simply. Because bad news doesn’t get better when you make it more complicated and a lot of sighing, moaning, and crying probably makes it worse.
What (if anything) do you think is beyond the stars?
I would guess more stars.
What “redneck” (unsophisticated) activity do you like to do?
I’m not sure what I do is particularly sophisticated, unless reading, writing, and taking pictures are sophisticated. I also think, but I used to believe that this was one of the privileges of being a human. Apparently, I was wrong about that.
I still eat, sleep, use the bathroom. I scrub the floor just like the rest of the world. No house cleaners, yachts, or fancy cars. Not that I would mind having any of the aforementioned, mind you. I just can’t afford them.
Is there a scary scene from a movie (or book) you viewed a child that still haunts you?
Nope. Not much of a scary movie watcher. Probably because if I watched those movies, the scenes would bother me.
Last (rock trivia courtesy of Glyn), which true to form I won’t answer. I wanna see if anyone (besides Glyn) knows the answer:
Seal’s ‘Kiss From A Rose’ was the theme from which film?
