Acting Balanced

I am joining in the fun at Acting Balanced today for the Monday Quiz About Me. Stay for the fun.
I still have not fixed my header, and every time I talk to my son I forget. Oh well, it will get fixed eventually.

1. What is your favorite pair of shoes?
That would have to be my pink Birkenstocks. They were my first pair. I got them at a garage sale for less than a dollar in 1991. I still have them. Birkenstocks are the only thing to touch me feet. I even wear them in the winter. They make real shoes! Who knew? Not me until a few years ago.
2. Do you get embarrassed easily?
.My husband can embarrass me when we are alone. But, as a rule I don't. I talk to myself all the time, and have been caught doing it by strangers. I just smile and go on my way. I often sing along with the music in a store. Not loudly, but loud enough for me to hear. I don't have a good voice, in fact it is a rather pathetic singing voice. It makes people cringe. So when caught singing in pubic I smile then too.
3. What makes you cringe?
You mean other than nails on a chalk board right? That would be parents not taking control of their children and letting them run wild. I also cringe when a parent treats a child too roughly. There have been a few times when I have stepped into a situation.  It is amazing what the presence of a stranger will do to an unruly parent.
4. July 29th is National Lasagna day... are you celebrating?  What kind of lasagna do you prefer?
I like just plain old regular lasagna with lots of cheese. In fact, I have some in the freezer. I think I just answered the other question. We are having lasagna for dinner.

Recently, not too far from my home a young boy (2 years) was bit in the face by a rabid skunk. He was in day care, the day care provider went to help another child and the skunk appeared from nowhere and bit the child. He had to go through rabies treatments  So did his other, because she got some of the blood on her hands. The skunk was killed. This made my heart go out to these people, and made me much more aware when I go outside. I wear an emergency whistle around my neck in case of bears,  but now if might just be be case of skunks.

  1. We had a similar answer for # 3! I guess great minds think alike :)

    How awful about the little child getting bitten by the rabid skunk! We know someone who had to take those shots, and he said they were very painful!
