My Answers to “Twelve Things”


Twelve Things I Would Most Like to Know About You


Who in your opinion is the sexiest man who ever lived?

Paul Newman.

What favorite food do you rarely eat and why?

Chocolate pudding with vanilla ice cream. I rarely eat it because I’m too lazy to cook the pudding.

What would your closest friends be most surprised to find out about you?

I am not really as confidant as you think I am.

Who is the most famous person you ever met and what were the circumstances?

I met Jackie Gleason out in the jungle in Kenya in 1967 and John Wayne at the Laramie, Wyoming airport in 1969. The story of meeting John Wayne is given in my blog.

What famous person would you most like to have as a close friend and why?

I think Michele Obama. I am reading her book right now and she seems like a smart, funny, loyal friend who obviously has some stories to tell.

What is your biggest regret in life?

Being overweight for so many times in my life, including now. See that chocolate pudding answer above? I just had some for the first time in years.

What is the strangest pet you ever had?

A Raccoon. He was also the best pet I ever had.

What is the item of clothing you have owned for the longest period of time?

The skirt I wore for my wedding.  It is an Anna Konya gypsy skirt made of dozens of different strips of material sewn together.  I love it but haven’t worn it since I stopped doing art and craft shows.

What object in your house holds the most nostalgic value for you?

A mayonnaise jar in the shape of a China bulldog. It’s head comes off and it’s tongue is the handle of the China spoon to dip the mayonnaise out with. It was inherited from my mother who was given it by her sister when she was a little girl.

What question do you wish you had asked a deceased relative but didn’t?

I’d like to know how my grandmother met her second husband, how my dad proposed to my mother and what my birth was like.

Who in the world (relative or not) do you most resemble? 

I feel most like I imagine my mother felt, look like her sometimes, when I’m skinny, but look  like my oldest sister and grandmother when I am overweight.

What is your favorite footwear?

Croc Sandals (not clogs.) They are the only shoes I really feel totally comfortable in and since I live in a subtropical climate, they are always appropriate–until I go north of the border.

Okay, now I’d like to see your answers to the same questions. To take a chance to win money for your favorite charity, go HERE to answer.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
