We've just hit the halfway point of The Spanish Inquisition, but I don't think I'll get far today. My tummy is unhappy. It's probably the result of being tortured. Let's get on with it, though, and here's number . . .
26. The reason I started blogging?
Marriage (30 years) + Cheating (Him) + Gambling (him) + Not A Nice Person (him) = Divorce
Something on this corner cabinet could be out of its designated spot.
How will I find people tiny enough to use this china cabinet and tea set? And when I find the people, what if they don't like the kind of tea I have?
What if someone moves the tiny grandfather clock in this grandfather clock?
A poodle wearing a poodle skirt, and dancing.
Something on this dry sink could be out of its designated spot.
Please don't make me go back to work at the nursing home. I don't know why, but all the old men kept goosing me.
I hate it when Paul comes home from a tour and he has this crabby look on his face:
I hate it when Jon comes home from a tour and catches me with Paul.
Someone might take away the medicine I bought from that nice man in the back of the bar.
This could really be me, and I don't mean the woman in the mirror:
I hate it when Ryan comes home before Johnny leaves.
I hate it when Johnny comes home before Ryan leaves.
What if this is me and I don't know it?
You don't really think I could get pregnant, do you? I'm 55.
Maybe this is me:
What if this is my ass?
It's a good thing I don't scare easily.
28. Last thing that made you cry?
The conclusion of Billy Elliot (see HERE)
29. Last time you said you loved someone?
Carol's son was here this morning and he fixed my gate, my front door, and my roof. What's not to love?
30. Meaning behind the name of your blog, WOMEN: WE SHALL OVERCOME?
First I called my blog Dumped First Wife. That was kind of a downer so I went all triumphant instead.
31. Last book you read?
Nothing In Particular by Kate LeDonne (not really--I'm lying because I want to give Kate a big, fat SHOUT-OUT). The last book I actually read is In The Midst of Life by Jennifer Worth. She wrote Call the Midwife.
32. Books you are currently reading?
This question said "book." The next person can change it back to "book." I read books--one in bed, one in restaurants, one or more in the family room, one at the pool during August. Here's my current list:
Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin
The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris
The Blogger's Survival Guide by Lexie Lane and Becky McNeer (I edited this book quite some time ago and I had forgotten a lot of the good tips in it)
Ashes by Brandon Ax (currently editing)
Wild Tales by Graham Nash (Cherdo shared this one with me. If you don't follow Cherdo, you should get on over to Cherdo On The Flipside.)
Little House In The Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder (I'm reading this one out loud to my pretend grandchild)
33. Last show you watched?
Lillyhammer on Netflix Streaming
34. Last person you talked to?
Franklin--I just told him we need to close the backdoor because mosquitoes are getting in.
35. The relationship between you and the person you just texted?
Favorite Young Man--not sure how I met him.
Oh, wow! We got through a lot of questions today in spite of my unhappy tummy. I think we should celebrate by going back to Brian Setzer's rockabilly roots with The Stray Cats:
Infinities of love,
