Melanie posts four or five different questions each week to be answered. So today I get to create a SYW post.
On A Scale Of 1-10, How Strict Were Your Parents? Being a single parent my mom had all the responsibility of raising three extremely different kids. Strictness depended on gender. Being the only girl, I had strict rules about doing chores. There were way to many. I knew I had to do them all. The reality is that I did them. I was not ever the victim of corporal punishment. I was given a tongue lashing one or twice. As a teen there were not really any rules enforced. Mom worked late into the night. As long as I was home before her I was OK. It is a miracle that I didn’t drink or do drugs like many of my friends. I knew I had to be responsible for myself, and I was.
What Wastes The Most Time In Your Day To Day Life? Being retired means nothing is a “waste” of my time. I get to do what I want, when I want.
Do They Bury People With Their Braces* On? (* “braces” in this scenario are those metal bits they put on people to straighten their teeth. I realize “braces” are also some item of clothing that I believe men wear to keep their socks up or something. I’m talking about the teeth option). I never thought of this. So if course I had to do some research. It seems they can be left or removed depending on the wishes of the family and if the ortho wants them back because evidently they are the property of the doc, not the patient. Having never had braces because we could not afford them, it will not be an issue for me.
Why Does A Round Pizza Come In A Square Box? Have you ever tried to stack round thing? It is easier to fold a square box, to stack square boxes, and to walk holding square boxes. IMHO
Gratitude: Share something you are grateful for right now. I know that’s a tough question. It helps to share those bright bits with folks though, because many of us are seeing through an increasingly dark glass.
I am grateful for my Zs.
