The Friday Fives

1. Hello you beautiful fucking thing, how are you this fine day?

Tremendous. I have two doses of Moderna in my arm, the sid effects have passed. I have a job I like and it is spring outside what glorious Rocky Mountain weather.

2. What is the scariest/creepiest thing that happened to you as a kid/teen?

In our 4th/5th elementary school building there was this creepy, dangerous catwalk that ran behind the gym walls and stage that was part of the gym. We would sneak in there, before school or at lunch or sometimes after school to explore – we usually got caught and it was always scary when we did and especially when we got caught.

3. If you came with a warning label, what would it say?

Caution very ticklish. Really, really ticklish, followed by lots of giggles.

4. What makes you say “ah shit… here we go again” whenever it happens?

The traffic – it’s back. Like most folks, I was homebound for the pandemic starting in March, 2020. But I starting driving into the office in November – something that probably saved my sanity as I need people and interaction . And over the the last three or four weeks, the traffic density has been growing to the point that the northbound commute from Arapahoe road in Centennial is nearly at pre-COVID19 levels – so many cars. Folks have come out of hibernation.

5. What traits from your parents have you seen in yourself?

I have my dad’s mannerisms in the way I stand, smile, sit and use my hands. It is almost creepy.

  1. 1) I’m ok. Stressing about my board exams June12 and trying to find a good employment.

    2) When I was around 7, I was at the mall with my mom. I had to poop so I went to the bathroom. While pooping some creeper in the stall next to me tried to reach under and grab me. I yelled and stomped on his face. Then wiped as fast as I could and ran outta there. It scared to bejesus outta me and even now typing this I can feel my heartbeat accelerate.

    3) Caution: can be very loud at times.

    4) People that go through the self checkout line and have too much stuff.

    5) Dad: allergies, hypertension, hairline, voice, nose…
    Mom : emotional softy, weak stomach, fair skin…

  2. 1) Enjoying some spring skiing the last couple of weekends with bluebird sunny days and few people. Not bad for a working stiff.

    2) During a no-moon kinda night, I wandered into a small herd of bedded-down deer while walking through a glade. I couldn’t see them until pretty much the darkness all around me exploded with movement and chaos. The fact I did not pee myself and just curl into a small puddle of whimpering goo is beyond me.

    3) Possible blunt observations may cause pain, discomfort or dislike.

    4) Summertime roads, which now start…all the time. I Gotta adjust my travel times to non-weekends.

    5) I suppose my Mom for just saying it as she sees it, which is sometimes spot on and sometimes not always right or appropriate. My dad comes in the form of being able to survive most uncomfortable environments and situations, as well as the love of a screaming good deal on stuff (whether I need it or not).
