What I REALLY Want to Know . . .
It's my birthday today, so I'm giving myself a writing break. I thought I'd try something a little different for this post instead.

Have you ever met someone you really liked and wanted to see if they were good relationship material? Or have you ever wondered how well you really know your partner? Or maybe you're just hanging with friends and need some good discussion topics.

A while back I made up a list of questions that I kept handy for exactly these sorts of situations. I figured I'd share them and see if anybody finds them useful. If you feel moved to answer any of them I'd love to hear what you come up with!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


When you wake up in the morning, your first thought is:
- Must. . . hit. . . snooze alarm. . .
- Bathroom run!!!!!
- I wonder if she's as horny as I am right now?
- Drool puddle on the pillow again--yuck!


You have a flat tire. Do you. . .
- Call AAA
- Grab the lug wrench and pull out the spare tire
- Realize with a sinking feeling in your gut that that WAS the spare tire that just blew
- Perch on the car and try to look cute so someone will stop to help


How do you feel about doing laundry?
- Groan, Can there be a chore any more BORING?
- Yum, nothing smells nicer than clean fresh sheets
- Yeah baby! I never miss a chance to straddle the washer during the spin cycle!


How best would you describe your kissing style?
- Slow and lingering
- Hungry and passionate
- Hunt and peck
- Vampiric


When finding myself in a room full of strangers I:
- Hide in the corner
- Give a friendly hello and introduce myself
- Am the life of the party
- Sneak out the back door


Finish this sentence. I dance like:
- Fred Astair
- John Travolta
- A baby elephant
- Lurch
- Cher



We have a free afternoon together. Would you prefer to:
- Go to a museum
- Take a drive with no particular destination in mind
- Go antiquing or explore a flea market
- Take in a great movie
- Hang out around the house and relax together
- Have wild monkey sex

Finish this sentence: I would never ______________________.

I'm a 40-something writer, artist, and Jill-of-All-Trades. For me, magic is looking at the ordinary and seeing the extraordinary. My writing tends to take me to unexpected places--not so surprising when I think about it. I had an unusual growing up and have always chosen the offbeat over the "safe". I prefer interesting people over beautiful ones, and I am fascinated by people's stories. What I love most about life is its glorious imperfections and fantastic plot twists.
