Sunday Stealing: Pink

cannot draw a circle

This week’s Sunday Stealing is called Pink. I assumed it meant something else. Instead, the progenitor of the post is something called Fickle in Pink.
Ah, what the heck:
The Pink Panther theme
Trustfall– Pink
Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd

Barbie World by Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice, with Aqua


1. Do you tend to have a guilty conscience?

No, and yes. On one level, what is done is done. Still, at unexpected times, I ruminate on how I could have done something better, especially this year.


2. Do you still have your wisdom teeth?

Nope, all gone, two at a time, before I was 30.


3. Peanut Butter – creamy or crunchy?

I don’t eat peanut butter because I don’t like it. When I was three or four, I ate it a lot, Jif brand. I wondered if I had overdosed on it. The valuable aspect of this is that when I’m eating unlabeled cookies, I can take one bite and suss out the PB ones. This was important because my daughter is allergic to peanuts and most tree nuts.


4. Get up off your butt. Take 5 steps. Which leg did you start out on?

My right one always, because it’s in less pain than my left. When I walk up or  down the stairs, it’s also the right.


5. What color is your favorite kitchen utensil?

Turquoise spatula.


6. Did you watch the Michael Jackson memorial/funeral?

No, and I had no interest in doing so. Yet I wrote about remembering where I was when I heard he died.


7. Do you know anyone who graduated from high school this year? Were you invited to their graduation party? Did you go?

Yes, some kids from church. We went to two different events. At some point, it rained, but neither party was a washout.


8. White with black stripes or black with white stripes?
Surprise me.
Paul Peca
9. If we were to call your 6th-grade teacher, what would they say about you?

I hope nothing unless you have been conducting a seance since he died in 2011. But Mr. Peca would be pleased because I’m a thinking, opinioned sort. I remember distinctly that he supported Barry Goldwater for President in 1964 when most of the class backed Lyndon Johnson. But he liked the back-and-forth.


10. Can you draw a perfect circle?

Goodness no. I have to draw a clockface for those cognitive tests they give old people.  It’s an oval, at best.


11. What was your favorite scratch-and-sniff sticker scent?

I’m not a fan. It makes me slightly nauseous.


12. How many light switches and electrical outlets are in the room that you are in right now?

There are two outlets. The one with a power strip allows me to use my laptop, printer, CD boom box, light fixture, and phone charger.


13. Do you know sign language?

No. I tried a little, but I was not a quick learner.


14. Do you step on cracks in the sidewalk?

I make a point of it. When I try to increase my pace, I try to take fewer sidewalk panels, two instead of three, e.g.


15. And the sheets on your bed look like….?

I don’t know. I usually go to bed after my wife does and in the dark. Currently,  they are blue flannel.
