Onward: Sunday Stealing Again

"One More Time (a)gin", a comedian once said....

Have you Ever?
A meme taken from the blog My Random Randomness

1.  Have you ever gotten lost in a maze?  No, I have never been in a maze.  I do drive around in circles quite frequently looking for places I have to go in the country.  But that was not the question.  2.  Have you ever been attacked by a wild animal?  No, I have not ever been attacked by a wild animal.  3. Have you ever ridden a camel?  No, they are fresh out of camels here.  4.  Have you ever pet a rat?  I can't say that I have pet a rat. Not the animal kind anyway.  5. Have you ever been a member of a gym? Yes, I was a member of a gym about 15 years ago.  6. Have you ever been in a helicopter?  Nope.  7.  Have you ever cheated on a test?  Not back in school, I was too scared of getting caught to do that.  But online tests and trainings now often give you the correct answers to questions answered incorrectly and so when you take the test again you know the correct answer.  That feels like cheating.  8.  Have you ever ridden a tractor? Oh yes. I have ridden a tractor. It's been several decades ago but I have ridden a tractor.  9. Have you ever passed wind/or gas in an embarrassing situation?  Yes.  I am sure we all have.  10. Have you ever played the bongos?  Yes definitely, I have played the bongos.  I have played the bongos but not correctly.  Is there a correct way to play bongos?  11. Have you ever handled a snake?  No-oh?  12.  Have you ever assembled furniture by your self?  I have assembled Barbie Beach House furniture.  13.  Have you ever been scuba diving?  No, I can watch scuba diving on TV instead.  14.  Have you ever had a disastrous interview?  Um, sure I have.  15.  Have you ever sold your services?  Technically, we all sell our services in exchange for our time if we have a job working for people other then ourselves.  16.  Have you ever won a giant size cuddly toy from a fair?  No, other people won them for me :)  17.  Have you ever milked a cow?  Milking cows was "before my time".  18.  Have you ever raised money for charity?  Yes.  19.  Have you ever used the phrase "back in my time' to someone younger?  I use that phrase quite often. It makes it sound as if our life is over.  20.  Have you ever invented a fairly unique meal or drink?  No, I have not. It would be hard to create a unique meal or drink as the majority of us just eat the same food over and over.  While we might call it Mexican food or Italian or Gourmet , it is usually still just made of the same ingredients we always eat.  No matter what we call it, it is still just fish, beef, pork, grains, vegetables, etc.  

So, happy Sunday Stealing. How are things going for you?

Sunday Stealing: Are You?

The "Are You" Meme
and the blog My Random Randomness

In my case this meme is more about what I am not:)

1,  Are you a psychic in any way?  I am very empathetic with people.  I can look at people and know exactly how they feel that day.  It can make me feel exhausted if I am in a large group of people because it feels as if I am sort of bouncing off of the emotions of others.
     People at Church often think I am prophesying about them because I can "hit the nail on the head" about their life or emotional situation.  However a preacher told everyone no one was prophesying over them, that some people could tell them things simply by the fact that the person "had been around."

2.  Are you a good dancer, good singer, good artist, and/or a good cook?  Nope

3.  Are you a good listener?  I rate excellent in that department.  All kinds of people tell me their problems.

4.  Are you a good public speaker?  I am not a public speaker at all. I have done minor things like one hour orientations for clients through work.

5. Are you a good babysitter?  I am a very good, experienced babysitter. I was the oldest of four kids and my mother had me watch the other kids while she cooked, cleaned, shopped, did laundry, and worked outside the home. My first jobs were babysitting.

6.  Are you a good mechanic?  No,  
7.  Are you a good diplomat?  My sister doesn't think so.
8.  Are you a good swimmer or skier? In Kentucky there is not adequate snow to learn to snow ski.  Water skiing is a thing but I was never able to do it the few times I tried.  I do know the basics of swimming.
9.  Are you a good dresser?  I live in Kentucky.  People in the fashion industry would not think I am a good dresser.
10.  Are you a good gift giver?  My sister doesn't think so.
11.  Are you a good comedian?  I joke a lot.
12.  Are you a good cleaner?  I may as well say no, although I can clean well when I want to.  
13.  Are you a good actor?  I recently had someone tell me that they "couldn't read me." I was delighted to hear that because my knees were bothering me, I had been feeling like crap for several weeks, but they couldn't tell!
14.  Are you a good writer?  My sister doesn't think so.

Tell me about you!
