Was the last thing you read digital or print?
Digital and it was “The Mueller Report.” Otherwise, most of my reading (other than comments and posts ) are audiobooks with a little bit on Kindle. I don’t really have a decent reading light by my bed anymore. I’m used to reading Kindle with its own backlight.
Are you more an extrovert or introvert?
It depends on the situation. I’m not good with large crowds, but I’m pretty extroverted in small groups with good friends.
How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?
I got OLD. How did THAT happen? Worse yet, all the people who I knew when I was young — they got old TOO. That’s just not fair!
Do you think about dying? Does death scare you? Why or why not?
I don’t worry about dying. I worry about staying alive.
Who has been nicest to me in my life?
That is a question I cannot answer. As a start, I can’t remember all the people in my life. If whoever they were, they were part of my much younger life, I don’t remember them. Sometimes, not even a footnote.
For another … how long do we remember people? I remember asking my Aunt Kate, who was in her 80s at the time, about “life in the Old Country” and she said, “Darling, I don’t remember. It was 75 years ago.”
Anything much that happened in my 20s I’ve mostly forgotten with a few exceptions, but the memories are going fast! Unless I still KNOW that person and can share memories, they have just slipped away. I’m sure they are in that giant hard drive in my head, but I get a lot of notifications labeled “FILE NOT FOUND.”
For another thing, “nicest” is too vague. I don’t know what it means.
