The Answer is Orange
I was troubled with my wardrobe. Orange is the color for MS Awareness and I just don’t have a lot of orange clothes. Even my favorite MS Awareness shirt is gray with orange in the design. I want a couple more MS shirts, an MS bracelet or two and a pin. I also want a coffee mug; of course I need that! That’s what I want to do personally. I want to own my own situation a little better.
Now let’s join Heather at Acting Balanced and Wayne at Touristic for the Monday Quiz!
1. Which are you better at: Reading, Writing or Math?
Much as I hated the idea when I was in sixth grade, I’ve always scored best in math. I was the only sixth grader in seventh grade accelerated math. Kids hated me and called me the most horrible names and I hated that I scored so well. I refused to tell my math classmates what my grade were because some of them were struggling... I wasn’t.
I finally dumbed myself down in seventh grade because, even though I just barely missed the cut to be put in algebra, they put me in algebra anyway. I didn’t do well because I didn’t apply myself. I also never did algebra homework.
I am so thankful that smart kids aren’t as tortured today as they were 30 years ago! I coulda been a contender…as a mathlete! :)
So, today, while I love to read and comprehend and retain what I read well, functional math is still something I do well without trying hard…and even without a calculator!
2. Tell us a good 'come back' story. Where you were down but were able to reverse fortunes and come out on top.
I kinda think I AM a comeback story every day!
3. Which would you rather do: dine or eat?
Dining is okay once in a while as a treat, but eating is eating. I either feel like cooking and then I make an attractive plate that I munch while I’m reading or doing something on the computer or I just grab something, make a quick sandwich or nuke a can of soup. If I made an event out of it all the time it wouldn’t be special and I prefer dining to be special.
4. What is one thing that someone close to you does that just annoys the heck out of you?
People close to me, even David, do little things that make me roll my eyes maybe, as I’m sure I do for them, but annoy the heck out of me? No one really annoys the heck out of me and stays close.
And don't forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!
5. What was the last sports event you went to? (any level of play)
Well, the last sports event I went to is the one I mentioned above, Toledo Walleye hockey. The Walleye are the minor league affiliate for both the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks.
Of course, the sport for which it’s not a guarantee that a week later I won’t have seen another game since then starts official in a month! The Opening Day holiday is April 1 this year.
