Question 17

1. If your house was burning and you had time to grab only one inanimate object (family and pets are safely outside) what would it be?

2. If you were given the chance - at no cost to you, except maybe your life - would you fly to the moon in a space shuttle?

3. When you get dressed in the morning, which foot do you put your sock on first ... right or left?

1. MY DRUGS!!!

Actually, it would probably be my purse, but I'll regret later that I didn't grab my prescriptions.

*makes note to keep stash of drugs in purse*

2. No thanks.

3. Left

1. While I should grab my wallet, I'd probably grab my laptop instead. It's got all sorts of stuff on it (including the data portions of my wallet contents!)
2. Absolutely.
3. Right.

1) Stash bag.

2) No thanks.

3) I simultaneously slip both socks on both feet, always.

Okay, no. But it varies.

1. am I naked or clothed? 'cause if I'm clothed I've already got the wallet and I could grab my gradebook.

2. there's no way this sounds good, but I would give the ticket to the Mrs. ,who loves space travel... also, are we gonna find Paris, Pat and O.J. on the moon after we evicted them from Earth 'cause they're gonna be pissed!

3. green! no right, aaaaaahhh! (heads for gorge of eternal peril)

1) I was waffling between two but my purse contents can be replaced. I'd grab my photo albums.

2) No

3) Right.

1. My mother has all the family photos, so probably my handbag, which has my most urgent medication (antihistamine) as a standard content (the rest I'll reorder.. I can go a day or two without my antipsychotics before I blow...), plus make up, aspirin, purse, ID, a book or two, some kind of food-like substance, cellphone (if it's not in my pocket), breath mints, band aids, pens, cash (occasionally), a small sink/refrigerator combo and my shrine to George Clooney, with lifesize replica.

2. Uncertain. I'd definitely want to go, but there's so much I still want to do here on this chunk of rock, and the chances of dying in transit are a lot higher than for regular flights.

3. I'm ambisoxterous. Depends on the day.

1. My vibrator. Ha! Kidding. I already threw it out. Can you imagine me standing outside a burning house, in a nightgown, clutching my vibrator. The firemen would assume it was overuse of my elctrical "appliance" that caused the fire.

I guess it would be my purse. I'm not attached to anything inanimate in my home ... or in my life really...

2. I would ... but only when I had reached a point where I felt like I had done everything I wanted to do and would be OK with dying. Like maybe in 30 years or so.

3. Right. Always the right. Same with shoes, pants, shaving and lotion.

 
At 3:59 PM , Blogger Tamara said...

Hmm. I do Right First for pants, socks, and shoes--but Left First for shaving, lotion, and toe-nail maintenance.

And yet when I do a cartwheel, I do it with my left leg and left arm leading.

Yet I'm right handed.

Maybe I was left handed by birth and my Momma forced me to conform!

 
At 4:59 PM , Blogger Tamara said...

Maybe I was ambidextrous by birth, and my momm--no... And my dadd--no... And I forced myself to conform!

I have beautiful penmanship though. :D

 
At 5:53 PM , Blogger punky said...

Ooh ... Tamara ... write me a letter. I love receiving letters, especially when they are written in beautiful penmanship :)

Pretty please.

1. Baby pictures

2. I understand that takeoffs and landings are not very comfortable. Then there's the whole bathroom thing. Once those issues are ironed out, sure!

Oh, wait. The space shuttle? Those things are like Yugos. When they make spacecraft like Bentleys with nice private bathrooms, sure.

3. Left. Had to reenact that one in order to answer.

 
At 7:16 PM , Blogger Tamara said...

Punky, I can't even think up a scenario where you would actually need to use "pretty" in front of your "please" to get anything out of me.

At least not without thinking too hard. ;)

Hey! That reminds me! You're going to send me a postcard when you're gone to the place with the thing, right?

 
At 10:01 PM , Blogger Slyeyes said...

1. Everything in my purse can be replace, including my iPod. But the photos of my girls as babies can't be. I'd grab those.

2. AFTER they've ironed out the kinks in the shuttle, then sure I'd go. I've wanted to ever since I was 8.

3. Right.

I've got to agree with Higgy on all counts.

 
At 11:46 PM , Blogger Higgy said...

That's what I like about Bismuth. Great minds think alike.

Now, about that Flying Spaghetti monster theory of yours....

 
At 12:16 AM , Blogger Tamara said...

Why am I up so late? I don't know. Or maybe I do know, but I'm not telling. But maybe I just told by saying I'm not telling. Or maaaaybe I just BLEW your MIND! I had a point...

Oh, yeah! - Baby pictures of the munchkin are SO important to me--mostly because only a handful exist of me as a babe, and that kinda hurts my feelings--so almost all of Munchkin's photos are scanned and saved in various places on The Internets. No way I could physically lug all our photo albums out in time to escape a fire. Ideally, I'd like to rescue all the cd's the pics are saved on, but, still, not necessary, thanks to Al Gore!

Me go sleepies now.

1. laptop all my important stuff is on it. Though the first thought that flashed through my mind was the original drawing and poem my husband gave me 2 birthdays ago.

2. Nope. Staying home. (The "except maybe your life" part gave me a little too much pause.)

3. It depends, believe it or not, on whether I'm sitting or standing. Standing, right foot first. Sitting left. I'm sure it has something to do with the knee surgery I had last March.

 
At 1:32 AM , Blogger Graz said...

1. Guitar

2. Not only yes, but hell yes!

3. Left...unless the sock I'm holding has a hole that would cause my left big toe to stick out then I would put that one on my right and hope the other sock is good to go.....

Damn ... don't y'all sleep?

Off to an early morning meeting.

Smooches all around.

 
At 12:39 PM , Blogger Kafaleni said...

sleeping is highly overrated, P.

Think of us during your meeting (prolly too late now, but for next time...) - then see how fast you can come up with an excuse for the case of the giggles that you get in the middle of the meeting.

 
At 1:41 PM , Blogger punky said...

Kaf! Sleeping is sacred ... it's like a hobby for me.

 
At 8:56 PM , Blogger Graz said...

Oh, I sleep......I just work that afternoon thingie-ma-bob dealio whatchacall hoodickie.

 
At 12:44 AM , Anonymous Sallyacious said...

It only looks late because I'm so far to the left of you. For instance, from where I'm sitting right now, it's not even 10pm.

1. I am a big manly man, and I am capable of carrying many things at once(especially if the cat is already safely outside). I am also orgnaized, so I know where everything is at a moment's notice. And I am also assuming that the items in my fireproof safe (grandmother's pearls, Social Security Card, rare coins, etc.)will be just fine. So, I would probably grab (and stack) the Rubbermaid Tote with all the Christmas decorations, the Rubbermaid Tote with my favorite Lego sets, my laptop, my handmade marble collection and my sketch pad.

2. Yes.

3. Left.

LTTG from being out of town.

Assuming (as someone up there already said) I'm dressed, I already have my wallet, keys, etc. so...still not sure. Maybe the iPod. Gotta think.

2. no thanks

3. Ever see the episode of All in the Family where Archie & the Meathead have to share a bed and Archie is amazed to discover that Mike puts one shoe and sock on first, rather than putting both socks on, then both shoes?

No? Well, there was one. Anyway, I'm like the Meathead (no cracks, please) in that I put my left sock & shoe on first, then the right. No, I don't know why, and yes I'm righthanded.
