Questions for the week that will be:
Fill in: ‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that …’ This is a question for ‘radical honesty’. What are the things you wouldn’t normally say? Things you would otherwise actually hide? What’s on your mind? What would you really like to be able to say?
First, whenever you hear someone say “honestly” or “to be completely frank” or worst of all, “Trust me!” — be careful. Almost always one of these statements is followed by a lie, omission, or some other untruth.
So. If I were completely honest? I would probably be lying. Trust me, that IS the truth. No really…
Have you ever broken anything? What about rules?
Doesn’t everyone break stuff? Sometimes, I’ve broken me, which is not a good thing and I don’t recommend it. I drop things (watch out for slippery hands with soap suds), I slice off pieces of me and bleed copiously. I have twice in my life broken something in anger because the alternative was breaking the person. Things are replaceable. People, not easily — but in some cases, if it weren’t for all that legal stuff, I’d have considered it.
I have a carefully controlled temper, but if you push the right buttons, there’s a lot of power back there, waiting for an opportunity.
Are you also afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders?
Terrified of spiders, but not nearly as scared as I am of having our septic system or well dry up or go “bad.” This would condemn our property because we don’t have the $35,000 (possibly more) it would cost for a replacement. These things would leave us homeless and I don’t want to live in our car. I like our car. Just not as a domicile.
Do you think time goes faster as you get older?
Sure seems like it, doesn’t it?
Please share something that really inspired you from this last week or month.
We actually got a raise from Social Security! Not enough but much more than any raise we’ve gotten before Add that to us getting an Advantage plan that is free and we almost have enough money so the money (probably) won’t run out until the month is over. Wow!
