What age would you like to live to?

No idea. You’ll have to ask me from the other side if I liked the timing.

What mystery do you wish you knew the answer to?

Why some people think cilantro tastes like soap.

Does absolute power corrupt absolutely?

Not necessarily, but I’d say it takes an unusually remarkable person to resist temptations that go along with absolute power. Most of us are a little too human to avoid the pitfalls from that power.

What outdoor activity haven’t you tried, but would like to?

So the longer I thought about this, the longer my answer became. For a non-outdoorsy person I’ve actually tried a wide variety of outdoor activities: skiing, hiking, camping, ATVs, horseback riding, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, sailing, deep sea and lake fishing, running, swimming, whitewater rafting, water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing, ziplining, plus some others I’m sure I’ve forgotten. Outdoor activities left strike me as being from the “not a snowball’s chance in hell” category: skydiving, rock/mountain climbing, ice climbing, cave diving, spelunking, cliff jumping, mountain biking, heli-skiing, or hang gliding for example. I’m not unreasonable, though, so if you’ve got a suggestion that doesn’t involve trapping myself in small places, jumping from large heights, or hurtling down mountains at high speeds then I’m all ears.

Please free free to share some gratitude from your world!

My friend shared these clean baking recipes and I have to say they’re pretty darn good. Especially the Copycat Bounty Bars – they are deeeee-li-cious. They’re like Almond Joys without the almonds, and it’s just a shame I’m the only one in my family who adores coconut like I do. [Except not because YUM.] I also made Chocolate PB Protein Bites. Don’t expect them to taste like candy, they’re more like a protein bar bite, and they do a great job holding me over until dinner. So there’s my two snack-y gratitudes for today.
