This week’s Sunday Stealing is Compassion, Int’l, which refers to this organization. What the quiz has to do with the entity, I am uncertain.
1. Do you ever have funny dreams at night?
If by “funny,” they mean weird, strange, bizarre, then yeah. And I can have them when I take a 30-minute nap. I remember them for a time but forget them if I don’t write them down. That said, one recent one involved my late father.
Just last night, I played handball, two on two, but we played with full-sized cars that bounced instead of balls. (I used to play racquetball regularly from 1983-2010.)
2. If you could make a law for your country, what would it be?
A salary ratio so that the rich don’t continue to get richer.
3. What would you do if you were invisible for a day?
I’d sneak into some corporate entity and sneak out their documents proving their culpability in, e.g., polluting the air or water or creating other risks for people and/or animals. Then I’d leak ’em to the press. (Or should I post them on my blog first? Hmmm.)
4. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?
Elon Musk. And I’d give away 90% of his/my money to worthy entities feeding the hungry, fighting disease et al.
5. What would you like to change about yourself?
I want to eliminate some pain.
6. What is your daily routine?
Currently: I get up, post my blog to Facebook, do Wordle, Dordle, Quordle, and Octotordle, vote for my niece Rebecca Jade in five categories, vote for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame candidates, and check my email. Weigh myself, and take my blood pressure and pulse. Feed the cats, then feed myself. Then it depends.
7. What would your perfect day be like? What would you be doing?
Seeing a movie at a cinema, watching a play, or singing in the choir, and then getting a massage.
8. How old were you when you learned to read?
IDK. I don’t recall not reading.
9. What is the most interesting thing you know?
I don’t know that it’s INTERESTING, but I know all of the US Presidents, in order and year of inauguration
10 What makes you nervous?
Being late to take a plane or train.
11. What is your favourite flower?
Tulips. It’s an Albany thing.
12. Have you ever ridden on a horse or any other animal?
Yes, on June 9, 1975, I rode a horse. It was the day after I had my first hangover. Not recommended.
13. What time do you go to bed?
11 p.m., or maybe later if I have projects to finish.
14. What time do you get up?
7:15 a.m., when the cats want to be fed.
15. What is something that is always in your refrigerator?
Eggs, 1% milk, cottage cheese, grapes, and apples.

#2. I like that law.
#3. I love that answer – leak them to the press.
#4. I love that answer too.
Cracking answers, Roger.
Compassion sends out a newsletter to sponsors each month, and one of the fun things in the newsletter is a list of questions … has nothing to do with the kids that are sponsored, but just fun for the sponsors. I do Wordle every night around midnight, but I don’t do any of the other “….ordles”
Great answer about Elon Musk. Also, leak the documents to the press!! Your answer about riding the horse made me chuckle . . .first because you know the exact date! Actually, after I chuckled I may have moaned a little because I thought of a hangover . . .and the jostling around while riding the horse.
Sadly leaking them to the press would probably do nothing though we wish it would. I like that you have cats for alarm clocks!
I’m impressed at the puzzles you solve first thing in the morning.
Wow, great answers. Nice morning routine, too. Big applause on the self-care. I have such a hard time with that.
I’ll vote for your law.
I’ll advice to blog first and then leak. Otherwise someone else will get away with the money for the scoop.
And those puzzles… pffff….
Enjoy your week!
