Monday Quiz About Me

Acting Balanced

Here are the Questions:

1. June 10th is Iced Tea Day - do you drink iced tea? Sweet or unsweet? Flavoured?

Yes! We love iced tea. My Granny and another lady that we called Granny (a family friend) made it the best of anyone that I know. It was super sweet. It was almost guaranteed to put a diabetic into a coma. I sure miss it! Since my husband is a diabetic, we use artificial sweeteners, so I don't drink iced tea so much anymore. He drinks a gallon or two a day!

2. What would be an essential for you to survive a long airplane flight?

A hammer. My claustrophobia has significantly increased over the years and I couldn't stand being stuck in a plane for a long trip. To be quite honest, I probably couldn't stand it for a short trip these days either. I would have to be knocked out cold for a long trip.

3. How do you explain wanting an iron to someone who does not speak English?

Perhaps it would work to play a game of charades to explain it, but the most sure way would be to take them to an ironing board and show them. Ooops! I misread the question! If charades didn't work, maybe drawing a picture of an iron would.

4. Should smoking be allowed in restaurants?

No, it should not. My right to breathe supersedes another's right to pollute the air that we are all entitled and forced to breathe. I grew up with asthma and around people that smoked. I now have COPD for a stupid habit that I never took on. I do my best to avoid cigarette smoke as much as possible. Okay, so people want to smoke. They should confine it to their own homes (preferably not exposing other innocent children to the poison) and keep it out of the public air space. This goes for lots of other things, too, but the question was about smoking.

I have the right to live. No one has the right to kill me. But, because of big money tobacco companies and people that have no self-control, I will spend my last days gasping for breath, forced to deal with an oxygen tank, all the while knowing that each passing day means less and less lung power, losing the ability to talk because all lung power will go to just breathing, until finally I gasp my last.

Bonus question to answer either on your own blog or down in the comment section of PS Annie!

Do you cook out during the summer? If so, what is your favorite thing to cook out?



  1. Couldn't enjoy my food if cig smoke was swirling in the air! Gross!!

    1. I agree completely. It just makes everything taste bad!

  2. Forgot to answer your question. I love having cookouts, and my favorite things to cook are chicken, steak, burgers and veggies.

    1. Those things are so yummy. We're having hamburgers tonight, but not from the grill. I hope that you have a great summer of cookouts.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

  3. We actually cook out year round even in the winter snow. The only time we don't BBQ is when it is actually snowing or raining. Hubby doesn't like to get wet.

    1. We could do that here, too. There isn't really a winter to speak of down in this part of Texas. We do have a lot of wind, though. Thankfully the grill is heavy enough to stay put. :)

      We have a carport that we could pull the grill into if rains came and we wanted to grill anyway. But, when it rains here, it is so bloomin' muggy that none of us want to be out there for any length of time.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!
