Gah! I don’t know. I used to be a lot more adventurous when I was younger. Think scuba diving with great white sharks, flying in a helicopter, possibly even bungee jumping though heights make me weak in the knees…ya know, the stuff we dream of doing as daredevil teens because we believe we are mighty and invincible. But ever since I became a mother, I’d see Danger! signs everywhere–from the sharp corner of a coffee table to a staircase with a broken guard rail fence (that expensive staircase fence you buy at Babies R Us to keep your little one from tumbling down the stairs and breaking their sweet noggins).
Why would I be stranded on an island in the first place? I never travel by boat, and would never go on a cruise. But if you’re going to go all Cast Away on me, I guess I would want to have a satelllite phone. A knife would be good, too. And a really, really, REALLY good book.
8. If you could meet the President of the United States, what would you say to him?
Probably a lot of questions, but the most pressing one would be: Why, oh why, do I always get the jury summons, and not my husband?? I’ve only been a citizen for a few years and yet, that dreaded mail always has my name on it.
Oooh, a tough one! Nothing comes to mind immediately (probably ’cause I’m hungry at the moment and daydreaming of a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting…mmm…Oh, sorry!) I do have a character I like very much, and though she only exists in 2K words of my own making, I’d like very much to make her come alive sometime. She’s a young witch named Amelia, who’s less green than a proper witch should be, and whose spells always backfire on her. She lives with her three stepsisters–all full-fledged witches–and they think Amelia’s an abomination because she’s more human than witch (she hasn’t grown warts, for instance, and her button nose refuses to grow three inches long). After a disastrous spell puts Amelia in more trouble than she’d ever been, she runs away from the witchy village to find her place in the world.
I don’t hoard quotes, so I have nothing in my arsenal to show you. I only try to live by the golden rule of life: Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you. That’s a tongue twister. So, basically, be nice and show kindness to everyone. Don’t judge. We’re all trying to live life the best way we can (and the best way we know how–even if our knowlede is imperfect and lacking. But as long as we try, isn’t that good enough?)
I’m supposed to tag 7 people so this meme can continue to hop along. So, here are my victims, er, picks:
1. Angela V. Cook, who’s newly agented, and may have more interesting answers to this meme than I do.
2. The Rookstar, a.k.a., Bethany, because she’s hilarious and is naturally a rebel when it comes to memes and rules.
3. Mary Frame, who’s just as equally rebellious as Rookstar, and when she’s got too many margaritas to drink, is a real riot. 😉
4. Kittie Howard, ’cause I’m a curious bunny and I’d like to see what she’ll come up with.
5. Jenny of the Phreshness, or the Party Pony, ’cause she knows how to par-tay, and to maddeningly twist memes around until they’re irreverently funny. In other words, she’s the first person to make me snort my drink (and caused me much embarrassment in the process.) ❤
6. Suzanne F. Payne, ’cause she’s in a blogging funk and I’m hoping this meme would lift her out of the funkiness. 😉
7. Erin Summerill, who’s funny and cute and all-around lovely.
Happy Monday, everyone!
