Sunday Stealing: The Oh My! Meme, Part One
1. The phone rings; who don't you want it to be?
A telemarketer of any kind. Despite being on the No Call List, a few of them still manage to call our unlisted phone number!

It depends on the situation, setting, and company.
4. What was the last compliment that someone gave you?
I honestly don't remember.
5. Do you play the lottery?
Nope. I played on the first day that California's lottery opened and when I didn't win anything, I never bought another ticket. I can think of better things to blow my money on than the lottery.
6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, who would you want with you?
Grizzly Adams or Macgyver since either one of them would know, or could figure out, how to survive.

CampING with family and the Girl Scouts, but never to a summer type camp.

I married someone whose religious beliefs were different from mine for the first three years of our marriage.

Pursue is such an aggressive word that it calls to mind a hunter and an antelope. Neither of us pursued the other; we were interested in getting to know one another better and a relationship developed from there.

(1) assertive; (2) friendly; (3) bibliophile; (4) lifelong learner; (5) trustworthy; (6) compassionate

18. If your house was on fire, what thing would be the first thing you grabbed?
My husband if he hadn't already grabbed me.
19. How often do you have a romantic weekend?
If you mean of the getaway type, rarely; however, romance isn't just for the weekends!

These days, I think equally about the past and the future because without understanding the past, the future stands a good chance of holding the same mistakes.
