Miss Erin of Tesori Trovati tagged me with a meme to answer the following four questions:
1::If one color were suddenly eliminated from the world, which one would you sacrifice and why?
I'd be okay if I never had to look at baby poop greenish brown ever again. As for the why...that's kinda self-explanatory, I think.
2::What one moment in your life would you go back in time to have a 'do-over' and why?
OMG...there are SO MANY! How to pick only one of the uber-embarrassing and awful moments of my life to erase? It's nearly impossible. So, I'm going with two. One more serious and one that was hideously embarrassing at the time, but is more humorous now (although I still could live with undoing it).
First - the serious one. Without naming names and going into excruciatingly painful details, let's just say there was a pivotal moment at the beginning of a certain relationship in my life where I had a choice between two options. I made the best decision I could at the time based on the information I had available. However, hindsight (and more information) has revealed that I definitely picked the wrong option and if I could go back and choose the other option, and thereby save myself a huge amount of suffering and heartache, I would.
As for the humorous one, here it is. I would really like to save my 16-year-old self from that day in French class where I had to give an oral report and one of the rubber bands on my braces snapped, flew across the room and hit the teacher in the middle of her forehead. In front of the entire class. Yeah, that was a BAD day - the repercussions of which continue to follow me to this day.
3::What would the name of your superhero alter ego be and what super power would you possess?
Since I've already proven that I have the ability to spontaneously re-generate from the wreckage and ashes of my former life, I think my alter ego would have to be called "The Phoenix." I'd be indestructible and have the power of flight (since the phoenix is a bird, after all).
4::What job would you absolutely hate to have to do every single day and why?
I have an extremely low "ickiness" tolerance so anything remotely gross, smelly or disgusting is totally out. An employee who spends all her time bent over puking is not really an asset to the company.
I'm also not fond of anything that puts me in contact with bugs or requires me to get sweaty.
Oh, and I'd be a terrible nurse, too. I have no patience at all and would probably sedate most of my patients within the first five minutes just so I didn't have to listen to them.
Actually, anything dealing with the general public would be bad as well because I tend to dislike a pretty high percentage of the population within 30 seconds of meeting them. And yes, I know that this makes me evil and likely to end up in a very hot place in the hereafter. But the Powers That Be shoulda thoughta that before they wired me this way!
Wow. It's amazing I even HAVE a job LOL!
So, now I'm supposed to pick four additional people to tag with this. A task at which I sucketh mightily because most people have already played by the time one of these things gets to me. Here's what I'm gonna do. Iffen you haven't already been hit with this meme and you wanna play - consider yourself tagged.
Here are your questions:
1. What's your favorite period in history and why?
2. Which TV show are you ashamed that you can't stop watching?
3. I liked Erin's question about the life do over so I'ma steal that one. What one moment in your life would you go back in time to have a 'do-over' and why?
4. Who in your life do you wish you could re-connect with and why?
