Friday 5 - I'm Trying to Preposition You

It is kind of a cool day, so how about some piping hot Friday 5? Here are my answer to some questions. Do you have some answers too? Feel free to post in comments or on your own blog. I like answers. They make me feel in control!

1. What’s something that’s better on the rocks? Fountain drinks...but just a little rocky. And I seldom pour canned soft drinks over ice. If they've been refrigerated, they are already cold. If they have been out, pouring them over ice flattens them really quickly. Don't dilute the emotion, man! Feel it!

2. Whose behavior has been beyond belief? In this crazy, mixed-up world, is anything really beyond belief anymore? I guess I am a bit surprised by the recent wave of secessionist talk. I mean, really?!?!

3. In what way do you color outside the lines? I don't really. I am pretty conformist for the most part and don't tend to draw attention to myself with "coloring outside the lines" behaviors.  Sometimes, in certain company, my atheism and my liberalism make me feel like an outsider.

4.When were you recently relieved to be in the clear? I have recently been worrying about my mom and her feelings of loneliness stemming from her recent retirement. Fortunately, we found her a place next door to my ex and therefore, just around the block from DR and I....and four of my five kids! This doesn't really put ME in the clear....but it clears up a concern I was not handling very effectively.

5.What seems to have disappeared without a trace? Some of my relationship types of insecurities. Maybe not completely maybe there is still a trace...but my anxieties are fading and that is such a relief.

I hope you are all looking forward to a relaxing and/or exciting weekend. Please come back tomorrow to see my GRATITUDE Saturday Scavenger Shots. I'd be ever so grateful!

I realized reading your answers that there is really no drink I prefer over ice. And yes, the secession talk is nutty. Are they going to pay the US for all federal land, buildings, roadways and so forth? With you on not always fitting in as a liberal and atheist. Path results this year suggesting cervical cancer is behind me was a huge relief. And damned if my youth doesn't seem to be disappearing! :-)

Secret: So happy that cervical cancer is behind you! I can only imagine the relief.
And youth...oh my're right. Mine is hightailing it out of here :)
