The Friday Fives

1. What’s that thing you do that you just hate?

I think maybe hypnotherapy is the only solution. I am a nose picker, and I catch myself, and I have no clue I am doing it. It is a nervous tick after all these years and the root of almost everything that is wrong with me. If I can conquer this, I will conquer the world.

2. What’s that thing they do that you just adore?

Those weirdly fascinating Trump adorers who have never inclined to connect the dots between the things he says visa vie the things he does. (We are all doomed!)

3. When was the last time you were at the bottom of the well of sadness? 

When my mother was deathly sick about 8 or 9 years ago, and I had just met with the death counseling doctor/pastor who works at the Anschutz Medical Center. Driving home down I 25 with tears streaming down my face as I was shouting out loud – “No, I can’t lose you too, it is too early for you to go!” (spoiler – June lived, and I spent the weekend with her, and she has some much energy and love of life she is frankly exhausting for a 78-year-old.)

4. What was it that made you the happiest you have ever been? 

Maybe getting my green bike from the Gambles store with the sissy bar on the back and big handles upfront. I loved that thing. I think I left it behind a car – it got rolled over backing out in a prescient recreation of a Brady Bunch episode.

5. You get to recreate the memory of an event in the past – which one needs the big edit button?

The day Gary Nall got the cancer – yep, that’s the one.

  1. 1) My eating habits. I know what to eat to have a healthy life. I know how much to eat to be healthy. I just throw both of those fuckers out the window.

    2) Yoga pants

    3) Haven’t hit the bottom but this grad school shit has me feeling the bottom with my tippy toes. I don’t like that feeling.

    4) Have you ever done something that others would have missed or messed up? Then when receiving accolades for said actions gotten to look them in the eye and say, “Just doing my job.” The classic I know I’m a fucking badass but I’m not allowed to let you know that I know line? I have 5 times that I can recall. It feels as awesome as it looks on tv or in movies.

    5) Not going to a close friends funeral because of bull shit work or money issues. I’d like to have an edit on that one.
