Thank you, Bill Watterson, for all the happiness you gave me through the imagination of a little boy and his stuffed tiger. Calvin's existentialisism coupled with Hobbes matter-of-factness made for some of the best comics I have ever read. Therefore, I thought they would be most appropriate to assist with me with yet another rendition of "Someone Just Answered A Question About You!" from The Truth Game on Facebook. Hey, if you can't laugh at yourself...well...lighten up.
As I have previously mentioned, I never know who actually posts these interesting tidbits about me. To do so would require obtaining coins in some fashion and since I haven't even balanced my checkbook this month I just can't have this kind of pressure in my life. Plus, I don't care who said it but I sure enjoy reading it. Although I am curious to know - who came up with these questions? Because they are a riot. So here we go...
A BIG THANK YOU to those of you who answered, "yes" that you think I am cool. I try to tell my children every day how cool I am, but they reply just the fact I said this proves how wrong I am. Kids...what do they know?
Another truth some have shared is they don't believe I am looking to come out of the closet. You are right. If I had my way I would spend every day in the closets of my friends Eileen V., the amazing Tish Jett, and several others whose style I greatly admire. You're never too old to play dress-up and one should never underestimate the power of a great outfit.
I kinda feel I hafta set the record straight with the "Do you think Beth is bossy" question. While I appreciate the support given, I can be a little bit bossy. Gasp! I know, right?! At least that's what my younger brother and sister used to tell me. And my Mom. And my cousins. And my children. But it's only because I care so much that I feel I should share my wisdom. Really.
Now for those who believe I have never cheated on a test, you are absolutely right. I simply drive everyone around me crazy with my self-doubt from the time I learn about the test until the time I get the grade back. So to John, Jack, and Brad...I am sorry. This being said, I really don't see a quick-fix in sight so thank you for dealing with my neurosis.
Thank you to those who supported the idea I have never had a fist-fight. While this is indeed factual, I am afraid it would be less-than-truthful if I didn't admit to wanting to slug someone now and again. This feeling usually creeps up on me in the local Wal-Mart...but I digress.
Another correct answer goes to the friend who believes I have never played strip poker. This is a game short and under-developed people should never play less they wish to lose their last shred of self-esteem. I have a serious lacking of poker-playing skills and it has never been my desire to be the cause of someone's blindness.
The several people who answered "No" to Beth having a one night stand, you are all correct. Everyone knows to achieve a well-balanced room two night stands are required.
Lastly, to those who believe I make a good friend...well shucks. All I can say is it takes a good friend to be a good friend. I have said it before and I will say it again...I am extremely blessed by the people who make my world a beautiful...and fun...place to be.
