A Bit (More) About Me #2

Via Cee’s Share Your World for Monday, 8/27/18

Q:  Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?

A:  I am not picky, and I love to eat.  I like nuts in foods in which they taste good, which is most of them, and I don’t like nuts in foods in which they don’t belong.  Like pizza.  Unless they’re pine nuts.  Pine nuts are good on pizza.  Especially if it’s a pesto pizza.  Oh my gosh, I better stop!  I eat a 3-ounce serving of mixed nuts almost every day to keep my bad cholesterol low.

Q:  Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

A:  It matters not to me.  If The Boss happens to leave the door to the closet open, I sleep with it open.  If she remembers to close it, I sleep with it closed.

Q:  Are you usually late, early, or right on time?

A:  Almost always early, never late unless events beyond my control, like a lane-blocking wreck, cause me to be late, which is difficult to do because I always take that possibility into account.   My parents both worked, Dad full-time and Mom part-time, and I have 3 siblings.  Growing up, I don’t recall my Mom ever getting any one of us on time to a single event.  I grew up resenting that somewhat so resolved to do my best to teach my own kids the importance of punctuality as a sign of respect for others and as a demonstration of personal responsibility.  But Mom, I love you, and I’m eternally grateful to you for always getting me where I need to go.  Eventually!

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Ohmygoodness, SO much!  I do not deserve one fourth of the good things in my life.  To list just one:  Michael Perry’s reading of his audiobook Montaigne in Barn Boots: An Amateur Ambles Through Philosophy.

You can click the linked title above to see the Goodreads synopsis, and I’ll probably post my thoughts about it here soon after I finish it.  Perry is a delightful reader, and his stories are terrific.  After I drop The Girl off at school and head to work and again when I’m headed home, I plug the Kindle in, turn the stereo up, push ‘play’, and smile ’til I reach my destination.

Now y’all share your worlds with me, please!
