Today’s Questions…Getting to Know You


I hope you all are having a nice Memorial Day Weekend!  Our’s is pretty calm and laid back.  Our problem is that we don’t plan ahead.  So before we know it the weekend is upon us and we aren’t quite sure what to do with it!  But you have to love a 3 day weekend don’t you? 

It’s Monday but it feels like a Sunday so I thought I would participate in Mannland5’s Getting to Know You Questions for Today.  A day late and a dollar short…

Here we go:

1.  Have you ever snooped around someone else's house?

Yes, and now, not without their permission.   I was once at a party when a friend grabbed my arm and said “C’mon, let’s take a look around.  Together we poked our heads into all the rooms upstairs and I didn’t feel right about it.  Haven’t done it since.  I love a  good house tour as much as the next girl but would only “snoop”  now if I was given permission and told “Go ahead and take a  look around”.  But I would never open drawers or anything like that.

2. Can guys and girls be friends? ( thanks Jen!)

Yes I think so.  but it’s a different kind of friendship.  You can’t do all the same things that you do with your girl friends. It’s just different.

3. Can you curl your tongue?  Yes, I can and so can my husband and kids.  Not sure about the dog though…

4. Have you ever stolen anything?

Indirectly.  I was shopping with girl friends when I was in Junior High and one of them put something in my shopping bag without me knowing it.  She asked for my bag when we got out of the store and there it was.   I was shocked!  I wanted no part of that in the future and held tight to my shopping bags from that day forward.

5. Would you rather talk on the phone or text?

Hmmm…I don’t like talking on the phone much….it just takes way too much time.  I like to text but really only do it with a purpose like checking up on my kids.  I like emailing because the other person doesn’t have to answer right away and it gives me time to check my calendar or respond when I have the time. 

6. Memorial Day plans?

No sad to say none this year.  We are moving our daughter back to college for the summer session in just a couple of days and so we will be shopping for a used dresser and a new bed.  BORING!  But today we’ll be having a BBQ.  That’s about it. :(  I would much rather be out on a lake somewhere or at the beach.

7. What do you do to relax?

I like to surf the web, read blogs and magazines, watch TV,  bake something or take a walk with the dog. 


8.  Do you do anything to honor those that have died fighting for our freedom?

We fly our flag.

I like your answers. I can't believe that so many girls can curl their tongues! I can't at all. We like to do a lot of the same things for relaxing.

Have a great Memorial Day!

Hi Lisa

I so enjoyed reading your answers. I love getting to know more about you.

We are not at the lake for the holiday. Instead, we are spending a pretty quiet day at home.

Oh how I wish I could curl my tongue. I can touch my nose with my tongue and that's about it. Boooo! We generally do the same thing on long weekends. Planning never gets done and then it's time to go back to work! I hope the sun is shining for y'all and your cook-out. And just remember, asparagus is yummy on the grill, but people can smell your pee from the living room! ;-)

It's fun to read your answers and get to know a little more about you!

My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon
( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )
