If the government offered to suspend all laws, and law enforcement for 24 hours, letting you (and everybody else) do whatever you wish… Would you be in favor of it, or not?  (Credit for this question goes to Cyranny and her Daily Quickie Question)

Absolutely not. I used to be in a place where I might have answered yes to this. Twenty-four hours of people being able to get what they need without paying for it sounded like a pretty good thing to me, but now? I’ve seen the kind of violence people are capable of committing while (supposedly) under the threat of repercussions from law enforcement. I think a twenty-four hour window of lawlessness might be all that’s needed for Parler folks to take out our government.

What would be the creepiest thing you could say while passing a stranger on the street? (We’re suspending the whole social distancing and Covid involvement in this scenario.)

Mmm, you smell…earthy.

As a child, what did you think would be great about being an adult, but isn’t as great as you thought it would be?

Being able to buy whatever I want. Sure, it sounds great in theory – no more grownups saying you’re blowing your money on milkshakes and cheeseburgers. I had no idea it meant still wanting the milkshakes and cheeseburgers but having to talk yourself out of buying them. Ugh.

What, in your opinion, has been blown way out of proportion?

CANCEL CULTURE!!!!! (Did I do that right? Screaming in all caps?)

Where is your ‘happy’ place?

Looking out over the water. It can be lake, pond, stream, or ocean – just the view lowers my blood pressure.
