Friday 5 - Comparisons

This week has been a bit crazed, but at least it has gone quickly!  And here we are at Friday once again.  Friday 5 anyone?  I have to say, "Sure, why not?"  Can you follow along with that mindset?  Just say yes and do it. :-)

1.What’s something you do more quickly than most people?  Put together something in writing.  I wouldn't say I am quick on my feet or anything, but I can pretty quickly string together words that make some sort of sense.  See?  haha!

2.What’s something you do more carelessly than most people? I don't know...maybe raise children?  I hesitate to say that I have been careless about it, yet I know that I have taken a more casual attitude than a lot of people I know.  I have counted a great deal on my kids being able to get their ideas on right and wrong through example and common sense rather than spelling every little thing out in a lesson plan.  I will say it seems to have worked out fairly well thus far.

3.What’s something you do more slowly than most people?  Eat.  I like my food, but somehow have never developed a knack for rushing through a meal. 

4.What’s something you do more carefully than most people? I would say that I am pretty careful about giving advice.   I think I am a good listener, but unless you ask me specifically for advice I don't just offer it up.  And if you do ask, I will try, but with all sorts of cautions and caveats about how I really know nothing.

5.In what contexts are you more patient than most people?  In most contexts!  I am a pretty patient person.  Some of that has to do with my grand ability to block things out.  Some of that has to do with my natural born empathy.  Some of it has to do with my rather lethargic nature.  It is harder to upset or annoy someone who is so wifty.

Here is Tiger waiting patiently for Little Prince to wake up.

Thanks for participating, and have an even better weekend than most people!


Tara said... goodness, I love that photo!! Tiger is growing so fast!...And so is Little Prince! I LOVE the paw on the face! LOL!

I need to pace myself with eating, because I eat way too fast.

That photo is so great. I am not a patient person. I'm glad to know there are people who are.

Tara: I just thought it was the cutest thing. Apparently Tiger sleeps with Little Prince every night and during the day they ignore each other :-)

Sometimes I wish I ate a little more quickly.

Churlita: It seems like you have patience when you need are a mom and your kids are still alive, after all :-)

Either that, or Tiger is wondering if he can get away with tearing Little Prince's eye out.

But patiently, which is what matters. :)

Secret: Hmm, really? Who did this to you, Secret Agent Woman. haha!
