I do not know why this week’s Sunday Stealing is called Pinterest, but I stole the graphic from Alice’s Pinterest.
1. What is your favorite book?
I’m a sucker for a series of music charts books by the late Joel Whitburn re: singles and albums in the pop, soul, and country genres. As for actual books with sentences, it’s usually one of the ones I read most recently, such as How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.
2. Are you afraid of the dark?
I don’t see well in the dark. For that reason, I like to get to my seat at the movies before the lights go down. Also, I fear tripping hazards that I don’t see well or at all.
3. Are you mean?
I understand that the mean in math is “the average of a data set, found by adding all numbers together and then dividing the sum of the numbers by the number of numbers.” My age is above the mean. My intelligence? Who knows.
4. Is cheating ever OK?
I was contemplating whether lying, for example, could be justified. Possibly yes, but I’m not finding the same gray area with cheating.
5. Can you keep white shoes white?
Goodness no. Grass stains, mud, et al.
6. Are you currently bored?
Never. I find bored people boring, which sounds snobbish, but there it is.
7. Would you change your name?
I considered it for a time, but the circumstances changed.
8. Do you like the subway?
I love the subway. And I’m pretty adept at the NYC subway, the light rail of San Diego, and other major city systems.
9. Who’s the last person you had a deep conversation with?
My sister Leslie.
10. Dumbest lie you’ve ever told?
I can’t even remember.
11. Do you sleep with your door open or closed?
Closed, in order to keep the cats out. Okay, really one particular feline.
12. Favorite month?
March, which not only signifies spring in the Northern Hemisphere but the real harbinger of spring, my birthday.
13. Dark, milk, or white chocolate?
14. Tea or coffee?
I don’t like coffee. I realize this is a cardinal sin. And I do like several varieties of tea.
15. Night or day?
Summer nights, winter days.
