Congratulations to Joyce for providing us with 100 great editions of Wednesday Hodgepodge–even through the hectic preparations and impending arrival of a giant storm! Wow, Joyce, my hat is off to you–and I hope and pray that you and yours are doing well in the aftermath of “Sandy”.
If you haven’t joined us for The Hodgepodge, you’re missing out on a lot of fun. Speaking of fun, here is our 100th set of questions:
1. What creeps you out?
Here are just a few things – rats or mice, snakes, roaches, maggots, the sight and smell of vomit, diapers filled with runny “poo”, compound fractures, and severed body parts. That’s quite a varied list, huh?
2. What’s your least favorite candy?
Twizzlers. I’ve tried to like them, but I just can’t.
3. Are you a fan of scary movies? What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
I used to like scary movies, but most of them became so weird and gory, I stopped watching years ago. I don’t actually remember what the scariest movie I’ve ever seen was, but Stephen King movies always made my hair stand on end!
4. What part of life confuses you the most?
The difficult times we are now living in–and wondering what the future holds.
5. Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy…what’s your favorite seed?
I’m not a big “seed” person, but I like sesame seeds on top of my buns or bread.
6. Imagine your life ten years from today…what’s changed?
Things will have changed a lot–and most of it will probably not for the better. Ed will be retired, and I’ll finally be drawing a small retirement check from my former job, but our standard of living will certainly have to change from what it is today.
Hopefully, we’ll both be on Social Security and Medicare–assuming either of these programs are still in existence.
We’ll both have aged ten more years, which is never a good thing, health-wise, but hopefully we’ll both be living.
7. What do you a) love the most and b) like the least about the Hodgepodge?
(A) I love all of the wonderful people that I have met through participating in the Hodgepodge. I also love how some of the questions make me examine my inner-self, and give me a place to record my thoughts.
(B) I sometimes get frustrated while trying to figure out my thoughts and how to put those thoughts into words.
Ed and I participated in early voting yesterday. It felt good to cast our ballots and let our voices be heard. There was no line, and the process went quickly. We’re continuing to pray for our nation’s future.
I’m also continuing to pray for all of those affected by the recent storm. There’s so much damage and devastation! My heart goes out to all, especially those who lost everything.
