Seems I’ve caught another cold or whatever it was I had back in October. Feels the same. Lucky I didn’t have it when the power was out. Of course, being without heat for a couple of days could be *why* I’m sitting in misery, but who knows? Anyway, I only warn y’all of this because you might get some muddled answers and grammar, spelling mistakes. My mind is not firing on all cylinders. You know? Back to the questions.
1 — You’re walking in a forest and you find a black suitcase. Inside it is one millions dollars and a piece of paper, stained in blood and bearing the single word “Don’t!” Would you take the suitcase home or leave it? My first thought would be: What a strange thing to write on a piece of paper. After that I would pick up a stick, flick that bloody piece of paper aside for the cops to sort out and casually walk away with the suitcase. Nah, I’m kidding. I’d totally take it to the cops, note and all. I’m way too paranoid to keep something like that on my person. Then I’d get the hell out of Dodge as fast as possible because someone might have seen me take it to the cops and I don’t want anything to do with that mess. As for the note, it reminds me of this:
2 — Imagine you lapsed and cheated on your partner. You feel horrible and you know you’ll never do it again, because the feeling is so awful. Would you confess? So I’ve never understood the idea of monogamy or the idea of sex as “cheating” . My first husband and I had a fairly open marriage with a few set rules about cheating that really had nothing to do with sex (which he broke because he’s an asshole). I’ve never equated sex with love because honestly one can have sex without being in love with a person so why, all of a sudden does one need to suddenly say, “Yeah, okay, I’m never going to have sex with anyone else but you forever and ever.” That’s (to me) like saying, “Yeah, I’m never going to eat dinner with anyone else but you forever and ever.” It’s simply not feasible to me. Everyone I’ve ever been with knows this about me because I keep no secrets from those I’m intimate with. Having said all of that, if I chose to enter a monogamous relationship, and I slip up and “cheat”, I would totally tell my partner because as I just mentioned, I keep no secrets from my intimate partners. I made a decision a long time ago that I wouldn’t give anyone “blackmail” material over me. Told y’all I was paranoid.
3 — Would you live your life differently if nobody ever judged you for anything you did? I dunno. I might. People don’t judge me half as much as my brain tells me they do. So even if no one ever judged me, my brain might still tell me that they still are judging me. It’s just the way they are.
4– I numbered the questions wrong… stupid brain. and since someone’s bound to comment, I’m just gonna edit and add a number four here. 😛
5 — Would a fly without wings be called a walk? No? What would you call it? I’d still call it a fly. A mutated fly, but a fly nonetheless. Like you wouldn’t call a legless human anything else but a human. You know? I know this is a joke question, but still.
6 — What’s something that brought joy and lightness of being to you this past week? Even though I’ve been sick this past week, and even sicker these past few days, I’m gonna tell y’all something, dear readers. I’m pretty glad I am where I am these days. I love my husband dearly, and I’m glad we found each other. I’m quite attached to the furbabies, and I’m glad to have clothes on my back and a roof over my head. Being sick most of the time does suck rocks, but at least I’m warm and fed. It could be much, much worse. I’m glad I am here and I’m the woman I am — sick and all.
