What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Butterscotch. Rum-and-raisin. See the pattern?
If you were to treat yourself to the “finer things” what would you treat yourself to?
I don’t know. Perhaps I am a spartan, or maybe I am just incredibly blessed – I have everything I need. I would just want a struggle-free life. But that is not a “finer” thing – it is a necessity, no?
Have you ever been drunk?
Not fully drunk, but a bit tipsy. When we had been to Florence last summer, we had dinner (pizza) at a local non-touristy shop-around-the-corner. They served homemade wine that was a bit stronger than the wine I am used to. I giggled all the way back to the hotel, which I think is a sign of tipsiness. While my better-half was amused, my daughter promised to disown me if it ever happened again.
Once earlier, I had a couple of sips of Scotch (yuck!) and was queasy for the rest of the night. Not sure that counts as being drunk, but that put me off all hard liquor.
On the subject of wine, my favourite are Chianti (Tuscan) and Chardonnay (French). Sadly, both are beyond my financial reach. So, that could be an answer to the earlier question – if I could treat myself to finer things, I’d have a glass of either of them now and then.
Complete this sentence: My favorite supposedly guilty pleasure is…
Interesting that wine seems to be the standard answer to all questions this week. I promise you, I am not an alcoholic although it seems that way !
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Meeting with my college classmates. IT showed me how I have changed (for the better) and how I have everything I need in life. I must have done something incredibly good in life to be blessed with such a life.
I am looking forward to my kid turning thirteen on new year’s eve. I am also looking forward to a year that is hopefully not as tremulous as this one has been.
