Maybe I’ll be there to shake your hand, maybe I’ll be there to share the world that they’ll be giving away when we all live together. On second thought, scratch that. I’d like to continue living by myself, thank you. But I will share my world by answering Melanie’s questions because that’s what I do on Tuesdays….. usually, anyway. Enough with the penis monologues… let’s get this party started.
Guns? Are you pro or con? Explain your point of view.
I haven’t fired any type of a gun since I was a kid and my Dad would let me (and sometimes my sisters) shoot bottles at the levee. I tend to freak out anymore if I see a gun. I don’t like them personally, but I believe this question’s directed more at the political debate over guns… which is an entirely different beast. All I will say is nothing will affect our actual (not perceived) safety, nor do I believe it is possible to quell the fervent nature of NRA nation…
How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?
I don’t know if anything would change at all. This is basically just adding kids to the voter pool… and while kids are supposedly more subject to propaganda than adults (though I’d argue most people of any age don’t have a very objective BS filter), they probably mostly go along with their parents and everything ends up a wash. The wildcard would be the teens who might be more rebellious… but unless they start allowing voting via smartphone app, I doubt that demographic would be a force at the polls anyway…
What’s your cure for hiccups?
YAY! 15 weeks in, and it’s my first SYW repeat question! Maybe this one will become as popular as Cee’s infamous “Inherit XXX amount of money tax free” question. I’ll have to make sure I answer it a different way each time it pops up….
So forget what I said in January. My new cure for hiccups is….. surgery!
What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?
I wake up in the middle of the day (Yes, night job) freezing to death sometimes. It’s weird, and I shiver worse than I do on a winter day. Maybe it’s my cold heart…
If you would like, share a story, a photo or some thoughts on you may be thankful for this week!
I am thankful that the construction that closed down the intersection in front of my workplace for two weeks finally seems to have ended yesterday. The only other way into our Mecca parking lot is to reroute to a different intersection a mile down the road that gives you the grand tour of the empty commercial center my city built a decade ago that was supposed to feed off of our Stupidcenter expansion. What a waste of tax money that was. At least Lowe’s moved into it….. until they closed down in January. Anyone want to buy a huge retail building…… cheap?
