Sunday Stealing: Storywise

Time for a little Sunday Stealing (hosted by Bev Sykes)  — questions lifted from all over the blogosphere. This week's list is from a set of "Storywise" cards that were made for Alzheimers patients.

1. The strangest place you've ever been.
Junior high gym class.
2. Unusual food combinations you enjoy.
I guess I like pretty normal things. The weirdest things I can think of are peanut butter, bacon and mayonnaise sandwiches. Is that an unusual combination? Also cream cheese and sardines on rye. I used to love those, but would not dare eat one now.
3. Your best cure for hiccups.
Well, the old trick of breathing into a paper bag usually works for me.
4. Something you have never done but would like to try.
Always wanted to ice skate. Much too old to try it now, though.
5. A routine you do every day without fail.
Daily dental upkeep -- always. Even when I'm sick or traveling.
6. Something new you've recently learned.
Can't think of anything for this one. Haven't learned anything really new for quite a while. That's sort of depressing, isn't it.
7. Your keenest sense.
Once I would have said sight, but my eyes are not what they were. So I guess my sense of smell is probably keenest now.... Unfortunately. 
8. Whether you prefer cooking or cleaning up.
I really hate to cook, so if there's a choice, I'm usually on clean-up duty.... But I hate to clean up, too.
9. Where were you the last time you saw the sun rise.
Here at home, I'm sure. I'm not usually up that early, though.
10. A recent time you were embarrassed.
Nothing recent. I'm not easily embarrassed. Too old and nasty.
11. An everyday sound that delights you.
The mockingbirds that sing around our yard. They're actually mean little things, but I love their songs.
12. The last conversation you had with a stranger.
Haven't had what I'd consider a real conversation with a stranger lately. Made small talk with the checker at the grocery store today. Does that count?



  1. As an Australian, the American idea of putting bacon with anything sweet just perplexes me - bacon and peanut paste (as we call it) that just sounds odd - I might have to give it a try. I had sweet potato and marshmallow and a Thanksgiving thing (my first ever Thanksgiving) and that was strangely okay. There are some strange combinations that come from your country (though I embrace peanut paste and jam - I think you call it peanut butter and jelly). Pand

    1. Yeah, but you guys eat that terrible vegemite!

  2. #2 combinations do sound a little unusual to me. I have never tried those.
    I bet you have learned something new...either google or on the news. I learn something new everyday. It is just hard to remember what I have learned sometimes. Loved your answers! Have a great day!

  3. I didn't even consider dental upkeep--I'm with you, it's such second nature.

  4. I love the Little Lulu cartoon. If I were to try ice skating again, it would have to be like that!

  5. I think you're with me on #8 - you'd rather eat out!

  6. Convos with checkers countm yes, should probably eat out more. ;o) And, ice skating.... we lived about five minutes away from the House of Ice, back in the day, and before the baby I was about to give birth to was born. I had made up my mind to learn to ice skate, but the baby turned out to be twins! So, I just put on roller skates!..

  7. Little Lulu! I always liked her red coat. A friend wore a red coat the other day. Made me want a read coat but on me it would look like a big stop sign. lol. Cream cheese and sardines, I think I'll try it.
