It seems I have a couple of lurkers out there. Who knew? Not me. I lurk on blogs myself, so it shouldn't have been a big surprise.
One of these lurkers e-mailed me a meme. I got nothin' else to say, so I figured I do this meme. Here goes.
Does your mate annoy you without realizing it? How do you bring it to his attention?
Hoo Boy! Does he ever! I usually hit him over the head with a skillet. I don't cook much, so this is a good use for the skillet.
What was your first impression upon meeting your mate? Has that impression changed?
The first time I ever saw Niks, he was sitting at his desk in his office, wearing a red leather cap. That Niks. This was a protest about the air conditioning blowing on his head. He's been bald since he was in his early twenties, so he is sensitive to air blowing on his head. I thought he was a NUT. Now, I realize that he is a cross between a bird and a nut. A sweet bird and a nutty nut.
Does your mate do anything that embarrasses you? What?
You're kidding. Right? Of course he does. That's what husbands do. What? I don't know where to start. I'll just list one: he undoes his pants when he eats to allow for the expanding belly. No matter where he is. That guy.
Would you ever go to an all-nude beach?
What? I thought this was all about my mate! Hrumpf. Okay. Sure. I'd go to an all-nude beach. Would I strip myself? You know what? Yes, I would. When I was young and had a nice body, the answer would have been "no." Now I'm old, and if the other nudes were not people I would see again, I would be okay with being naked. But I wouldn't do it in front of folks that I know.
