Laughing At Myself...

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.


  1. I never look at those notifications that someone answered a question about me. Maybe I should...I always wanted to know if my friends think I'm an over-compensating, blow-hardy introvert who's eyes will eventually stay in a permanently rolled position from over exertion (I am).
    And you can tell your kids that I think you're pretty cool, too!

  2. First, I love Calvin & Hobbes and I'm glad you found a way to work them into your post. It's been such a long, long, time! As for this: no strip poker and no one night stands! Shame on you. LOL

  3. I've got to admit I do sometimes look at these notifications although thankfully nobody has said anything bad about me...yet!
    You've shown great imagination in your use of those Calvin And Hobbes illustrations in this post Beth.
    I've been a fan of Bill Watterson's creation ever since the late 80's when it used to be serialised in a national newspaper here in the U.K.....it was such a shame when Bill died a few years ago.
    Anyway now I've done the rounds of the blogs I follow I think I'll check my Facebook account, I wonder what question somebody has answered about me today ?

  4. I love this page. Beautiful.



Please share your thoughts, ideas, hopes, and dreams...I love reading every one of them!
