Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

At first when I read this, I thought it just said who would you want to go to dinner with?  Now I see it asks who would I want as a dinner guest?  I like that better!  My answer is: Clay Aiken.  I know the conversation could go on a long time about many things including politics and disability issues. I would love for him to meet and interact with Jamie. And I know I would be entertained the whole time by his snark and sense of humor.


When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?

I sing to myself all the time!  I sing along in the car, to the tv, walking around the house! To someone else? Can’t imagine doing that…not seriously.  I bet I have done it in fun.  I just wouldn’t be able to tell you when.

If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

To be less afraid. I get tired of being afraid of things. With that comes worrying. With that comes missing out on some things, too.  It would be nice to be less afraid and more confident.


What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

I can think of a few things. I don’t even care to write them down. Even though there are things I do believe shouldn’t be joked about, it doesn’t mean we don’t joke about them.  I think there is a difference between someone standing on a stage telling jokes about things that are too serious to be joked about and someone that might make a joke at home to deal with something. I remember sitting at a funeral making a joke with someone.  Inappropriate?  Probably.  Using it to cope? Absolutely.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful that a long put off medical screening test is done and it was normal!!!  Beyond grateful, actually!

It is sometimes hard to think about what I am most looking forward to in the week coming up. I don’t always have my life too scheduled. I am looking forward to the possibilities and to more sunrises.
