Melanie posts four or five different questions each week for you to answer.
In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to real magic?
When against all odds, something ‘goes’ right.
Where is the worst smelling place you’ve been?
Being in a room with a human being kept alive via “medicine” while the body is rotting from the inside out…literally.
What are some things that you’ve heard in your own life, which sounded like compliments but were actually insults?
Freshman year in high school, advanced English class, ‘instructor’ made some statement about (me) being surrounded by people holding up candles. He was a grossly obese, balding, old man who clearly suffered from an over-abundance of ego and I had no idea what he was talking about or why. I still don’t and I don’t care but it’s odd that I remember just that much.
What incredibly common thing have you never done?
Malign someone, carry out a vindictive act, steal anything, shoot someone, give in to road rage, be rude or disrespectful toward anyone without provocation, not worked for what I have, nor went to my HS prom.
Gratitude: Last Sunday afternoon, the guy, Sam, at the Apple Store was amazingly helpful and patient (almost two hours). He could have just told me that he couldn’t help me as the ‘problem’ wasn’t an Apple issue but a Verizon third-party phone insurance (Asurion) problem.
