you know those emails.....you'd be lying if you said you have never received one.
It asks for details on those little or not so little known things about you....so the person who did the sending can "learn" you better.
Well, I just received one from a dear friend from high school. Some of the questions are silly and some are rather interesting. I wonder though, who sits down and actually creates these emails that span the globe several times over again? Are they unable to get away from their computer? Are they surrounded by mounds of Hot Pocket boxes and that weekly delivery is their only source of living breathing contact?
Some of the questions are so odd. the original list was 46 questions long. Here are just a handful of them with my answers.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS AND HOW MANY?
oh boy, anyone who knows me knows that is a loaded question. It is so funny when I get asked that and must spend more than one sentence explaining my answer. I usually get, "What?! You don't look old enough to have a 27 year old! You must hold your age well." That of course is a compliment but I always end up feeling like I cheated or something after I am finished explaining.
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Okay this is one of THOSE questions...does it matter and who cares? (I guess #7 is still having it's affect on me)
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
22. IF YOU WHERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
(This is set up to be one of those introspective phsychology questions) I just ventured over to the Crayola Database to view their colors. Wow there is actually a history on color crayons. It brought back memories. How many times my Mom and Dad would tease me about their special color being Chartreus. I always thought it was a made up name ...like when my Dad would say something was Lavender-Yellow. There are some really interesting names there..... Tickle Me Pink, Razzmatazz, Inch Worm...I find myself wanting to choose a color simply by it's name instead of what it actually represents.
23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
spring and summer mornings
29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
Ha Ha! NO! I love answering THAT question. It was so cool to go into DMV a couple of years ago and have them take OFF the vision correction stipulation on my license.
35. HUGS OR KISSES?
39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
Interestingly enough, I just finished reading a junior high level book titled The Giver. Even though my goal was to screen review it for teaching purposes, I found it to be a great book for presenting the quandary of Utopia and Dystopia. It is a thought provoking book that opens the reader's mind without the needless item content that some other books of the same catagory have.
42. FAVORITE SOUND?
nature and my wind chimes
44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
Goody....being an MK makes this question fun......Japan or Madrid, Spain
