  • List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

I am probably a ‘blue’ fellow. If I had my druthers, I would probably live my life in light blue t-shirts and dark denim jeans.

So, I became curious and googled what desiring to wear blues most of the time might mean:

LIGHT BLUE is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding, and softness.

DARK BLUE represents knowledge, power, integrity, and seriousness.

Yep! I nailed it! That’s exactly me!!!

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

I would be an egregious pet owner not to say a coal, black Shih Tzu.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

  • Roses
  • Irises
  • Lilacs
  • Peonies
  • Ferns

Gimmicks…. Fads …. Rages …. Trends ….

Isn’t there anything under the sun that will really work?

Yes, I know what does work. I have to get off my lazy butt and walk more.

Raspberry ice cream (Three scoops please) is not a food selection for the good fruits group.

Eight glasses of water each day (Not eight cans of Mountain Dew).

Celebrating the loss of a half-a-pound does not mean I can eat a 16 oz. bag of Martin’s BBQ chips in one setting.

Sure, I know the basic rules; the give and take needed to succeed.

I know it’s hard work.

But why can’t there just be a pill for it?

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

Meals out, a short day-trip to a local historical site, two new best-sellers to read for the evening, and an additional hour to play fetch with my roommate (my coal-black, nine-year-old Shih Tzu) before bed.

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

My favorite place in the whole world is home.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

At 12, I was a canary living-it-up in a tropical forest. I do not think I had any ‘best friends’.  (I had just started to enjoy the world of music, drama, and performance with a local high school. I was a sometimes=beloved’ little brother. Everyone was too old for friendship.)

The Tentative Wallflower

Perks-of-Being-a-Wallflower

The Tentative Wallflower

I have been singing in public since I was five. My parents often told stories of our family attending gospel-sings and my young presence being requested on-stage. It am not sure if it was because of talent or because of exuberance. Mom would tell of me standing on the very back pew of the church and singing boldly along with almost every song that the local quartets would offer-up.

Now, I could never see me sharing in such an out-of-body experience.

I claim that my interest in new passions has remained untapped because of the time constraints of a more-than-nine-to-five job of teaching middle school. But I am not sure that is completely true.

I enjoy, and have no out-of-body fears, of teaching in my classroom. But I seem to enjoy the persona of a wallflower for all other experiences.

I have no desire to lead new groups… explore new cohorts… delve into new organizational people sets… or investigate new assemblies.

I have attended several meetings for these new passions, (a local archeological group, an astronomy group, and even two writing clusters) but I remain on the very outside.

While I relish the mastery of new knowledge, doing so by way of an organizational format is not me. Being a hand-shaker is not my forte.

I am the tentative wallflower.

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time?

When I leave a room, the lights usually stay on… (Yeah, not very ecologically friendly.) But then my travel to-and-from us usually only includes two rooms.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500?

  • A vacation?
  • A night on the town?
  • Take family to a grand meal?
  • Pay someone to do my chores?

With $500, the world is my oyster!

Complete this sentence: My favorite thing to do on my cell phone is…

My favorite thing (actually, the only thing) to do on my cell phone is to press the ‘talk’ button when I text. I hate texting otherwise.
