A Weekend Quickie – Rory’s Questions

Rory over at A Guy Called Bloke has given us six more questions to quickly answer. So that will be my goal. 

1) How much encouragement would you need to take a leap of faith into the unknown?  It depends on which unknown. I wouldn’t enter an unknown cave because of my claustrophobia. I would read an unknown author though.


2) Why do they not totally kill the aggressor in horror films to prevent them from coming back to life to hunt them down? You never know when they might want to continue the story later.


3) As you have aged have you become more so or less so – happier? Probably more so because I have more control over what I choose to be bothered by.

4) What were the things you both liked and hated about your schooling as a youngster? I liked elementary school because it was a safer place than my home life. I hated high school because I felt I knew more than most of my teachers. I graduated early and started junior college. It was the first time I felt I was really being educated.

5) If ‘fear’ wasn’t an issue for you, what would you do? Fear of hurting myself is still an issue. I always wanted to skydive. My goal was to do it by the tie I was 45. That is long gone now. My body would not do well on the landing, even if safe, at this age. I did go parasailing and that was awesome. I was much younger though.


6) What’s the one thing that people always misunderstand about you? I am much more of an introvert than most people realize. I can talk to most anybody, but my preference is a select few friends.

  1. Excellent answers Lauren … l have always been baffled as to why anyone would ever want to jump out of an aircraft that wasn’t on fire?

          1. Well then, with that attitude, l expect to see you throwing yourself out of a plane this weekend — they can do wonders with everyone these days and AS you are going to land so softly Lauren l am sure your body will cope 🙂

            We will all await the photos ….

          2. I am smart enough to know at this stage of the game my osteoporosis would not allow me to make any jump. When I was younger a group of teachers I worked with decided to do a jump. Sadly, I could not afford the adventure. Something I regret still. Parasailing was wonderful though. I would do that again in a heartbeat.

  2. After 3 weeks of hellacious jump school, when I was given the choice of jumping out of the plane or facing the wrath of the Jump Sergeant, the choice was easy. After that first jump into the unknown, the others came easy. What I never understood was why would anybody jump if they weren’t getting paid. We got paid an extra $55 a month.
