Is it ever okay to commit a crime? Please explain.

I don’t think anything’s black and white anymore so yes, sometimes it’s okay to commit a crime. I’m finding it hard to put this one into words but like porn I know it when I see it, y’know?

Do you deal with change well? (not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did any how. O_o ) 

This has been a major shift for me. I didn’t used to handle change well at all – I knew how things were supposed to be, I had my plan in place, and when things shifted it freaked me out. These days I (mostly) handle it better. That often involves deep breathing and reminders that things will be how they’re meant to be so agitation is pointless.

Do you like birds? The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food?

Oh my, yes! I haven’t always been this way; I’m not sure I even noticed birds growing up. But now just the sound of bird song lowers my blood pressure and I could watch them swooping through the sky all day. We’ve had a particularly active backyard this week which has delighted both the cat and me to no end. And okay, fine, I guess chickens count as birds and I do enjoy chicken…but I don’t want to think of them as the same as my sweet singing birds. Yikes.

What’s the least used item of clothing you own?

A few years back – let’s say more than five, less than ten – we went to a party with a “super fancy” dress code. (I’m sure something more appropriate was written on the invitation but that’s nowhere to be found in my memory banks.) Anyway, to this day I have a floor length ballroom gown hanging in my closet that’s been worn a grand total of O-N-E time. Does it make sense to keep it? Not really, but you know the second I donate it there’ll be another weird invitation in our mailbox.

If you care to share, what are you grateful for?

I’m very grateful that so far my family has stayed healthy. We’ve all had a pretty serious case of the allergy snuffles but at least there are meds for that. I’m grateful the kids finished their school year and have kicked off summer vacation, albeit a very strange corona days summertime indeed. Oh, and fur babies. Even Gracie, despite the fact that she ate three of the four sweet potatoes I made for dinner last night, BLESS HER WHOLE HEART.
