Roger’s Magical, Mystical Questions:
What happened to cause you to discover ‘bullies” were real?
My father was the ultimate bully and then there were the mean girls at school and the odd boy bully along the way. After my father, though, the rest were a piece of cake. When you were scared to death as a baby, the rest are easy pickings.
Eavesdropping- When given the chance, how often do you eavesdrop? (this may be a similar question to what some folks said they’d do with an invisibility cloak)
I don’t eavesdrop. Also, as a side note, I really wish people would stop shouting into their cellphones in public places. I wonder if they realize how much private information they are exposing by doing that.
Escalators, at one time, were the ‘next big thing’. When was the last time you rode an escalator?
Logan Airport, January 2016. I don’t think there are any escalators in this part of Massachusetts, We don’t have big malls on multi-levels in Worcester County. They have never been popular around outside Boston. They were more popular in New York but New York is a very vertical landscape.
Have you ever ‘let’ someone win in a sports competition or a board game? How did it turn out?
My granddaughter was three. It was Candyland. We saved the “teaching experience” for later years.
Melanie’s Muggle Questions:
Do our fears start with our DNA? (Credit to Rory)
Some do, some don’t. Fear of falling for example, is built into babies and many other infant creatures, including snakes. Fear of unfamiliar people and being surprised are all DNA.
If you could have your hair any colour for 24 hours, what colour would you choose? (Credit to Sandmanjazz)
I like my hair white. I wish is would stay whiter, but there’s a lot of iron in our water, so it turns it a bit brassy yellow as it grows out.
When do you think a person gets old? (Credit to Rory)
When they lose their jobs and get Social Security. Also, realizing there is such a thing as a “senior discount.” I’m ready for any discount at any age. I think there should be many many more senior discounts on everything.
