Random Facts about yourself.  List posted by teleportingweena with the following statement. 

Here are some fun questions to answer that I saw people doing on my friend’s FB.  Maybe you’d enjoy answering them, too. 🙂

***

23 random facts about yourself that may surprise your friends. 🤔🤔

THE QUESTIONS 

1. Do you make your bed every morning?  Yes, and sometimes in the afternoon too after nap time.

2. What was your first car?  I don’t remember but it had four doors, four tires, eight windows.  And it had a motor.  Pretty common kind of car.

3. What two grocery items do you never run out of?  I am diligent about keeping mac and cheese as emergency food, and a can of cranberry sauce I’ve had since 1987.  I hate cranberry sauce so I expect never to run out of it. 

4. At what age did you start doing your laundry?  18, when I went to college.

5. If you could, would you go back to high school?  Not if it means being a teenager again.  I would like to sit through some classes that I didn’t like then, but would like now, such as history, civics, geography.

6. Can you parallel park in under three moves?  Nope, but I can parallel park.

7. A job you had which people would be shocked to know you once had?  All my jobs have been very common.  Student aide, waitress, secretary, teacher, church staff.  Guess that is why money in retirement is in short supply

8. Do you think aliens are real?  God created man on earth, but I have no idea what else he has done through the ages.  So maybe, but I don’t think they “visit” the earth

9. Can you drive a stick shift?  Yes.

10. Guilty TV pleasure?  Have none.  I don’t watch junk.  If I have any guilt it would be from watching TV of any kind when I need to do something else.

11. Tattoos?  15  (Does that surprise you?  Does it surprise you that I have 15 tattoos or that I lied?  Joking of course.  I don’t have any tattoos or piercings.)

12. If the world ends do you want to be one of survivors?  I don’t know how there could be survivors.  But, no, I wouldn’t choose to live; heaven will be a wonderful spot to land.

13. Sweet or salty?  Salty.

14. Do you enjoy soaking in a nice hot bath?  I hate to take time out for a shower but always enjoy it once I’m wet.  I take showers not baths.  The only place I take a chance on getting into a tub is in a hotel when I have no option.  Then I have to sit on the side and lift my feet into the tub.  Not pretty!

15. Do you consider yourself a strong person?  Yes.  However, don’t tell my husband.  He believes I’m not strong enough to vacuum and clean the bathtub.

16. Something people do that drives you nuts?  Watch unending hours of TV.

17. Do you have any birthmarks?  I don’t remember.  I think I used to think a couple dark spots on my skin were birthmarks, but now I can’t pick them out of their crowd.

18. Favorite childhood game?  Paper dolls.  Is that a game?  Guess not, but that’s what I remember doing – that and coloring

19. Do you talk to yourself?  Seldom out loud, but often in my head.  Sometimes I talk to you even though you are probably a thousand miles away.

20. Do you like doing jigsaw puzzles?  Yes, but I can only concentrate on doing one that has about 350 pieces.  Below sixty pieces bore me, 250 I’m fine.

21. Tea or coffee?  Neither if hot.  I like sweet tea – faucet temperature.

22. First thing you remember wanting to be when you grew up?  Nurse.  I loved the Cherry Ames books.

23. Favorite game now?  Rummikub

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Great. Good that I have a soul mate who can laugh at herself (though I am sure she would whack this non-believer on the head first chance she had😂).

    • oneta hayes says:

      I’d whack just hard enough to make you listen to me. Thank you for the comment. I admire your ability to stand right in front of my fast ball and never duck and run. 😀 I’ll be watching for your next throw. Will it mock our President or our God. “Our” as in yours and mine. Too stubborn to admit it? Go right a poem dedicated to “nothing” and remember that nothing can not even be air or space. It is hard for me to conceive of “nothing.” Wax poetic. 😀

    Like reading this. So many of your answers were exactly the same as mine. One the dress up cardboard dolls were the love of my life. Today’s children look at you as if you’ve ‘flipped.
    love and understand your bath description. I have always preferred to take a bath than have a shower. Now I can get in and out of the shower without incident (there is a handrail). I think I would be frightened if I go into the bath they’d need to emply heavy equipment to haul me out again.
    Great questions and your replies made then zing. Thank you.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Oh, Faye, you have given me another thing to worry about regarding tub bathes. Being hoisted out of the tub would be even less pretty than getting in! What a nice expression that my “replies made them zing.” That sounds fun. Good night, dear friend.

  5. shoreacres says:

    I loved playing paper dolls. One of my best friends used to play paper dolls with me — a boy named Timmy. When we got bored with that, we’d go across the street to the school playground and push each other on the swings.

  6. hatrack4 says:

    Loved your answers. I responded when Kathy Boecher posted her answers. This might be a personal question, but are any of those fictional tattoos in places that you would be embarrassed to mention?

  7. ghostmmnc says:

    Thanks for the mention, and for playing along answering the questions, Oneta! I enjoyed reading them. Had to laugh at the ‘old’ cranberry sauce!
    I remember playing with paper dolls all the time. We’d buy books of them, or just cut them out of catalogs. Hours of fun. 🙂

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes, those catalogs. Especially nice if you could find a girl with a slip on – then look for dresses that fit. Ooops to often when I didn’t remember to leave a tab on the shoulders and sides.
