You can tell a lot about a person by how they answer certain questions. Consequently, I thought you might want to learn a little more about me. I know I always want to learn more about myself, like who doesn’t? So I took part in this random questionnaire that I found on the internet. And then I got a few of my family members to do the same. Weirdness ensued.
Here are the questions:
Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 48, and find line 4. What does it say?
It’s a quote from the play Salomé, written by Oscar Wilde – “I am amorous of thy body, Jokanaan. Thy body is white like the lilies of the field…There is nothing in the world so white as thy body. Suffer me to touch thy body.” Hot turn-of-the-century stuff.
Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What can you touch?
“Xtreme Monkey” Gym Rings, a very large book about voodoo, and an empty truffle wrapper.
Before you started this survey, what were you doing?
Eating raw broccoli, a tomato, and baked salmon dipped in Sriracha sauce. Oh, and I ate that truffle as well.
What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Some movie with James McAvoy. I fell asleep.
If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
A place in the Caribbean for all of my family and friends to come and visit. I would design it myself. And a cat and dog sanctuary for unwanted and/or abused pets.
Tell me something about you that most people don’t know.
I nursed all of my children until the day they turned three, no more, no less.
If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do?
Easy. I’d rip out all the windows and make them bigger, and I’d install a sleeping porch. That’s it.
What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
I wonder if any cats have pooped or barfed on the floor during the night.
Think fast, what do you like right now?
Ummm, ummm, ummm, Sriracha sauce and Justin Timberlake. He’s hot.
What are your best physical features?
My eyebrows, and the arches of my feet. If I do say so myself, the arches of my feet are pretty darn sexy.
So what did I learn about myself from taking this quiz? I’d say – that I have a problem with enclosed spaces (true), that I’m definitely a romantic (also true), that I love animals (totally true), and that I’m a bit of a total frickin’ weirdo. My husband would vehemently agree with that last statement.
As for the other members of my family, their answers weren’t all that interesting. They did a lot of mumbling about lying in blankets and watching Million Dollar Listing because I forced them to. What I learned about them? They are a bunch of big babies who whine a lot. And truth be told, they are all kind of boring.
My husband did say that he has 3.5 cats. I thought that was interesting since the rest of us in the same household have four. I guess he considers Jackson only half a cat. Figures since the two of them don’t get along very well.
On a final note, my younger son answered that he thinks most people would be surprised to know that he actually has a heart. I’m surprised by that too. What I’m not surprised by however is the fact that the first thing he thinks about when he wakes up in the morning is girls, though he didn’t say “girls” exactly. He said the word that rhymes with “sussy”, hence the reason why I’m not sure he has a heart.
Next time I’ll know to keep the questionnaire stuff all to myself. There are just some things a mother does NOT need to hear about.
