Another Share Your World Challenge has come across my desk, and these questions sound like interesting ones to answer. Share Your World comes from Cee, and as always, thanks, Cee, for this Challenge. I love it.
- Would you accept $10,000 to shave your head and continue your normal activities without a hat or wig while not explaining the reason for your haircut? Absolutely. Someone asked me a similar question a few years ago, only it was if I stripped and walked out into the 4th of July parade. My answer to that was yes, as well, but I asked for a lot more money!
- Which of the following restrictions could you best tolerate: leaving your country permanently, or never leaving the state or area in which you live now? Both answers sound perfectly nice to me, but much would depend on the country, and/or the region I’m traveling into. I have moved away and come back many times, and some of those excursions out of Maine were very good for me. But I have also lived out of the country, and if I could choose to return to Turkey, I’d be there in a heartbeat.
- If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick?My store would be someplace wherein many different cultures are recognized — from as simple as Pier I Imports, to as grand as The National Museum of Modern History gift shop.
- If you could have a servant come to your house every day for one hour, what would you have them do? The living room — vacuum, dust, clean the windows. That would be heaven. I do have someone who comes in weekly, but she does light housekeeping stuff. I’m doing more and more, my dishes are washed immediately after every meal, I don’t throw catalogs or magazines on the floor around my chair, I’ve moved one bookcase out of a spot where it was never used, to right between my desk and my DVD collection, so that I can get to it easily. Vacuuming still does a number on my back, but if my helper can’t come over, I do it myself, now, instead of letting it go for another week. As I’ve said before, I’m not sure where these bad housekeeping habits came from, but they were quite set by the time I was 14.
