Have you ever ‘butt dialed” someone? (‘butt dialed’ means have you ever made a phone call that you weren’t aware of making, because the buttons on the phone got pushed by your sitting on them (in your pocket) OR having something in your handbag press against them?)

I haven’t butt dialed anyone but I’ve been on the receiving end of a phantom call. There’s nothing quite as funny as screeching “Hello? HELLO???” into the phone in the hopes of getting their attention.

If you were given 1000 acres of land, what would you do with it?

Let’s suspend reality when it comes to financial backing. Do I get to pick where the land is, too? If we’re talking undeveloped wilderness I’d establish it as a conservation area open to the public. If it’s close to a populated area I’d develop beautiful affordable housing – interior design, landscaping, energy efficient, the whole nine yards.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on-line recently? 

Oh my gosh, THANK YOU for this question! I recently spent an afternoon bookmarking things that brought a smile to my face. It’s a tie.

Have you ever eaten something off the floor? ‘5 second’ rule applies or not (the ‘5 second rule’ is that if you pick up the dropped food within a set time frame, it’s still ‘clean’ and you can safely eat it)?

I was on board with the 5 second rule for things like crackers (hard stuff that doesn’t “absorb” dirt) before we lived with pets that shed. Have you ever gotten a dog hair stuck in your throat? That can be some bad mojo, man, so stuff that hits the floor now usually belongs to Gracie.

Feel free to share your gratitude with everyone in the form of a quote, a thought or an image.

“The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.”  Michael Josephson
