#181-RANDOM QUESTIONS

FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT ON BLOGSPOT THERE IS A WEIRD RANDOM QUESTION SECTION THAT DOES JUST THAT, GENERATES RANDOM QUESTIONS THAT ARE WEIRD.  IT IS THE QUESTIONS THAT MAKE ME WONDER ABOUT THE PERSON OR PERSONS COMING UP WITH THEM.  WHAT ON EARTH IS THE PURPOSE OF THESE QUESTIONS?  ARE THERE PEOPLE OUT THERE CHAMPING AT THE BIT TO RISE TO THE BATE? (Is that a mixed metaphor?)  I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HOW THESE QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED.  SO, I GUESS THAT MEANS THAT I ACTUALLY HAVE TO READ ALL THE PROFILES OF THE BLOGGERS I FOLLOW.  OK... ... ...BE RIGHT BACK!


60 minutes later... ... NOPE!  Nobody answered any random questions.  No surprise there! I mean, take a look at them. Can you come up with any answers to these dumb questions?  For that matter can you come up with any reasons for having these questions on a profile in the first place?  Here is a sampling of some of the questions and my feeble attempt to answer them  (FYI: since I wrote this I did find 1 person who answered one of the questions):


1.  You can punch a hole in an apple using a straw. How do you think that makes your milkshake feel?
 I would be more concerned about how my apple felt having a foreign object jabbed into its side.  The more serious question is what if I sucked on the straw and inhaled the little core!  Would the straw be sorry?          
2.  Try writing your name with your other hand. Where was that person raised?
That's obvious.  I was "left" out in the cold and raised by squirrels (I have been called squirrelly often).

3.   Which is easier to make a model airplane out of and why: a banana peel or a wet sock?
Both!  Each of them can fly a long distance when thrown.  And they both would make terrific "splat" as they impacted the head of who (or is it whom) ever they struck.
4.  If your whole body was a hot air balloon would you stop eating spicy food?
Depends if I want to go up higher or gradually float back to earth.  With my gastric problems this is something I would have to consider carefully (or I could be on my way to the moon).
5.  Which is more important to you and why: flexibility or expandability?
BOTH are equally important particularly if we are talking about my jeans.
6.  The first time you had your shoes taken off - how surprised were you to see that you still had toes?
The first time I had my shoes taken off I was probably too young to know.  After all, I used them for sucking on and probably thought they were, ahhh, something else.
7.  If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you'd see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?
So!  Who cares?  Been there done that. And,  since it would have to be night time to see the stars I assume I go to sleep after I got through boring myself to death by looking at the stars ALONE.
  
8.  The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?
 I love the squish of mud between my toes.  I would spend my time on a lilly pad trying to catch lightening bugs (to see them light up my belly to make me laugh).
9.  You forgot your mom's birthday! What can you make out of super glue and olive pits?
Mom's are easy.  My mother LOVED what ever I made her.  My suggestion would be to glue the pits onto her FAVORITE pillow sham in the shape of a heart.  And I wouldn't forget to sign it, "I LOVE YOU," with a sharpie.  (No, I swear, I never did that... ... ... exactly).
10. How is an ankle unlike a consequence? 
I saved this for last because it is the hardest.  An ankle is not a consequence because it is a sequence.  A sequence of bones... ... ...and the foot bone connected to the ankle bone, and the ankle bone connected to the leg bone... ...Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones... ... ...


DON'T ROLL YOUR EYES AT ME!  THINK YOU CAN DO BETTER?  HAVE AT IT!

  3. I love the way you answered these questions (you are so witty). I think I would answer most of them in the same way- "When did you the questioner decide to start eating hallucinogenic mushrooms?" or "Do you have a designated typist for when you are under the influence?"

  7. I actually do have the question/answer in my profile, but I haven't changed it in a while:

    You've just inherited a manufacturing plant that specializes in plastics. What are you going to make?

    Jelly Bracelets. What ever happened to those?

    Your answers are much better! I think I'll try a new one...
