As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
What was your favorite food as a child? Do you eat it now?
One of my favorite foods as a kid was macaroni and cheese. I also liked scalloped potatoes covered with cheeses. I loved cheese burgers. Grilled cheese sandwiches were great. (I bet you notice a pattern.)
Thank goodness, I have grown out of that pattern. (That is not the truth!) Now I love anything with BACON! (…and cheese…)
If you were invisible, where would you go?
If I were invisible, I would love to sneak into my house during the days when I am supposed to be at school to see what my pets do. Do they really enjoy the days that I leave the radio playing? Do they have a preference of talk radio or music? When I leave the television on certain channels does that make the days go by more smoothly? I do this so that they are not bored with loneliness. But does it really work?
If I have prolonged hours away from the house, they each seem to think that I have totally deserted them. But after a quick greeting, all they really do is lay down beside of me and enjoy watching television.
I truly do wonder what they get into when I am not present????
Would you rather forget everyone else’s name all the time or have everyone forget your name all the time?
Remembering a person’s name is a sign of respect and shows that the person to whom you are conversing had worth to you in your relationship. I am mortified when I cannot remember a person’s name. (This can be difficult since I have been a teacher for 30+ years. Averaging 80 students a year, this would mean that I have taught approximately 2500 – the lowest guessimate- different personalities, each having their own name and set of interests.) I try very hard to place enough meaningful events in context with each student that I teach so that I can remember each and every one of them. Most of the time, I can. I enjoy seeing them once they have acclimated into an adult life.
I really does not bother me when people cannot remember my name.
A VERY LATE ENTRY!
