Yes, snow. Out west. Up north. And a wee bit right here, though not a big “snow event.” This is the time of year when snow shows up. Sometimes, we get quite a lot, but usually we get what I think of as a “warning” snow. A couple of inches. Just enough to slick up the grounds and remind us that winter has really arrived.
And now, the questions:
Does the weather affect your mood?
I don’t deal well with cold, wet whether. If the weather or at least the house is a comfortable temperature, I’m fine. But if it’s very hot or bitterly cold, I won’t leave the house.
If a stranger smiles at you or says ‘good morning’ when they pass you in the street, do you return it?
Yes. Why not?
If you had a choice of just one of these things to eat, what would it be and why? Items: Chocolate, a sweet pastry, a plate of chips/fries
I just ate dinner and nothing sounds even remotely appealing. That is the signature advantage of NOT having a stomach. You don’t crave snacks — sweet or salty. Sometimes, it’s hard to want food at all. That may not sound like an advantage, but for me (and others), it is. It’s great to not even WANT fatty food. TV advertisements for food are not tempting and that’s just wonderful.
If you could go back to when you were a specific age, what would that be? Why?
Physically? 17 was a very good year. Mentally? I’ll stay where I am. Because finally, I’m comfortable with myself. Not with every single aspect of me, but mostly. After all these years, that’s not too shabby.
I am grateful that this country didn’t turn our democracy into a Republican hockey puck to be batted around the ice. It could have been a lot worse. It still might get worse, but at least for the moment I feel like I can breathe.
