When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about?   If you are ‘old’ (a term with different meanings for everyone); what stories do you tell your grandchildren?   

I think kids will ask me to tell them about a time when we put something called “gas” in our cars, people watered their lawns every day, we elected the first person of color to be president, and you could buy a candy bar for a dollar (then I’ll blow their mind with the penny candy stories from my own grandmother’s hometown).

When did something start out badly for you but in the end, it was great?

I know you guys are what-ever, Laura, why are you always blabbing about food but for real, that totally fits this question. Imagine the food you love most. Now imagine sitting in some doctor’s office while they say that’s it, no more. That was me as I watched my lazy I-don’t-feel-like-cooking nights of a burger and fries drop out of my life.

What do you think you are much better at than you actually are?   Maybe this one’s kinda mean…thoughts?  

My first thought was singing. I mean, I’m okay but not knock ’em out of the park get ’em crying in the pews skilled. Except I know that, so I guess this isn’t a great answer after all.

What would be the worst thing to hear as you are going under anesthesia before surgery?

“Wait. What happened to her (husband, child, family member)?”

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Yesterday I finished reading a book for a discussion group tonight so that’s a win. (I know, I know – cutting it close.) I covered up those horrifying pesky grays that keep sneaking into my hair. Plus you remember that gluten free post from the other day? I tried their banana bread mix and it was…okay. Yeah, I know, that’s not an overwhelming review but to be fair my mom made kick ass banana bread and nothing ever compares. Still, it was nice to eat muffins again.
