Rory has numerous challenges on his blog, A Guy Called Bloke and K-9 Doodlepip . This is a challenge where (I think) I may have answered two out of the eleven challenges he has posted. My fault, not his…..
The Friday Four
Last one in this Series with one extra question as it is Series 1
1] If you are in a bad mood, do you prefer to be left alone or have someone to cheer you up?
2] What’s the one thing that people always misunderstand about you?
3] What do you think about when you’re by yourself?
4] What are three things you value most about a person?
Bonus Series 1 Question
If heaven is real and you died tomorrow, would you get in?
- I rarely get into a bad mood. I assume you mean a sort of anxiety ridden railing at the world and my particular circumstances and everyone is a B@^%$#d and they all hate me mood…yep, I don’t go there. I sometimes feel sad (which is expected as I have seasonal affective disorder which is a PITA), but with a good nights sleep (often brought about with the use of a danged pill) it quickly eases. I am, for the most part, a happy person. I laugh easily and can make fun of myself and enjoy that as much as a good comedy. I can, though, become righteously angry at the morons and idjits in politics….I then write letters, make phone calls, or simply show up at the morons local offices and verbally let them know exactly what sort of idgits they are…BUT, I am polite while hopefully making them feel like fools…What was the question again?
- always misunderstand? nothing really. I have had one or two people say when I am angry I get “cold and unfeeling” which isn’t the case at all. I get very quiet and determined that whatever just ticked me off shall be solved.. They mistake sarcasm and snark and a raised eyebrow at appropriate times to be coldness. I see it as “putting my queen on”.
- Nothing much. what to fix for dinner, where to go on vacation…did I need to go to the grocery for anything. I am usually reading when by myself so I am most often thinking about the book.
- just 3? Honesty, a sense of humor/adventure, a love of living creatures (that includes people as well as animals)
and a bonus question…dang Rory, you don ‘t ask easy questions, do ya?
The short answer is Yes, I would get in. The long answer is while I think it is comforting to think that when we die we go off to some glorious place where all our family is waiting for us, I am pretty sure it is really just a bunch of hooey. I do know, after having died and been brought back……that the brain misfires GREATLY when the heart stops and the lungs stop……and all sorts of strange things can be “seen” for just an instant…like a bright light; and hallucinations tend to have sound with them as well. I “heard” my dad speak…I heard wind and dogs barking…was it “real”? I strongly doubt it.
