MELANIE B CEE’s questions for today are fun and interesting as usual.

QUESTIONS      (a random bag today)  

Can you parallel park (if you drive)?   If you don’t drive, can you still skip?

Parallel parking. Ugh! Yes. I can do it if I have to. And maybe because of poor depth perception it is very hard for me. I will drive around the block to find easier parking and walk as far as I needed to to avoid parallel parking. I feel almost as adamant about left turns that don’t have lights to help out. I’ll make five right turns to get where I need to go rather than risk a fast left.

I think I can skip. I can walk and sort of run if I need to. I may have to come back to this question later.

Do you prefer early morning or late evening?  Or something in between?

I am a night person who has had to live in the world that praises the early birds. What’s so good about worms? It is so quiet after midnight. My best ideas flow during that time. But the dog or earlier in my life kids or jobs have to wake me early and so after midnight the only thing that gets done is reading. Not enough energy or vision to write. Barely enough energy to follow a story. And because my circadian cycle wants me up at night and not waking every few hours to take the dog out, let’s talk positively about naps. I love naps. My best sleep happens during naps.

Do you like avocados?

I love avocados. I just wish ours from the little stores here weren’t small rocks that rot the next day.

Is mind or matter more real?

Glass half empty or full is still a glass but we make it better or worse with our minds.

and a bonus ‘deep’ question just because

Are people in this current generation less or more sensitive than people from past generations?

Let’s stop being judgmental about folks that aren’t us. A little walking in others shoes might be needed here. Who do we go to to fix our computers? Or Phones? They know things and react in different ways than we do because their paths and life experiences are different to ours. We have a few things to teach but we can learn from them, too.
