List some of your favorites types of teas. I like one tea, and I like it one way. I like orange pekoe black tea — that’s your standard, American bagged tea — and I like it iced. Actually, I prefer it without the ice, but i like it cold. Yes! I like my tea cold, but not iced. I’m weird. Sue me. And I like it unsweetened. That is without sugar, or honey, or sweeteners of any kind. Stuff it, all you Southerners who tried to shove that syrup that you call “tea” down my throat for decades! 😛 Take your tea and drink it! More for you. I like my tea without sugar, thank you very much. 😛 I say this to my friends from The South who read this blog. They know my feelings about sweet tea very well. It’s all in good fun. ^_^ Anyway, I can tolerate, if I must, hot tea. And I can drink, if it’s offered, any kind of herbal tea, with few exceptions. But I prefer orange pekoe black tea. I suppose that this breaks my rule of not having any favorites because of all the teas in the world that I have tried — and there have been many — that is the one that I prefer the most. There are no others that even come to mind.
If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be? I misread this question and had to rethink my answer. I thought it said, “…describe your perfect day…” If I had to describe my day, today, as a traffic sign it would be a fork in the road sign. I had specific plans for today, two things I was gonna do. I haven’t done either. There’s still time in the day — it’s not over yet — and I might get them done (they’re not time sensitive). But I got distracted with writing and other things. I’m still getting things done… just not the things on my virtual “to do” list.
What are a couple of things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you? The best thing that anyone can do for me when I’m having a really bad day is just leave me the hell alone. Don’t try and make me feel better; it will only make me feel worse. Don’t try and figure out “what’s wrong” with me; I’ll work it out on my own, and then we can talk about it. Just… let me be. If my stomach were feeling up to par, I would also say, throw chocolate in my direction as you walk out the door, but I don’t think that would fly right now. Hopefully I’ll be able to eat chocolate again someday. I can’t imagine my life without it.
Now if we’re talking about a ‘really bad day’ as in me being sick, then… yeah… it’s the same thing — leave me alone. When I’m sick I just want to go to sleep and recover. Check in on me from time to time to see if I’m still alive or require assistance, but for the most part it just best to leave me alone.
Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed. I’ve always had this idea that one day I’d totally do a Forrest Gump and either run or walk across the United States. Just… go. I got the idea before Forrest Gump came out though, I read it in a book. I don’t remember the book. Some post apocalyptic story (it wasn’t The Shining). It was a long time ago when I was a teenager or before. But nothing worked anymore and people walked. There was a woman who survived the apocalypse who was overweight and very self conscious about it, and she traveled with a group of people to… somewhere. Anyway, when they reached their destination she wasn’t overweight anymore and she thought something along the lines of, “So that’s what it takes, just walk across the country.” That, and when I was about ten, I met a girl who was friends with my babysitter who had just hitchhiked across the country. Hitchhiking was big back in the 1970’s. Really big. Back to the question. I know it’s not a “sport” but I’d totally just walk or run across the country if I could.
