World's oldest profession.
I reckon so....but....she looks pretty darn healthy to me. This doesn't sit well for the feminist movement.
She was released early from the hospital after a double organ transplant because of the storm. Looks can be deceiving - I've seen stage 4 cancer patients that look perfectly fine.
All's fair when you're sick and you have no electricity. :)
If you had to pick one thing to be allergic to, what would it be?
You know it, Baby!
That's why I like you :)
You can have my share. :)
You are too good to me. :)
If you were skydiving, what would you scream as you jumped out of the plane?
I didn't scream anything when I jumped. :)
Broccoli! It tastes like shit, get stuck in my teeth and I never order it anyway. I might as well be allergic to it. :)
It's good when it's sautéed in garlic and olive oil.
What do you always avoid?
Can you remember a time when the media wasn't telling you to fear or hate something?
I'll agree with you about some extreme weather, but even that gets a little out of hand with these people.
Remember Shepard Smith with Hurricane Matthew?

What a drama queen! :)
No, I don't because I don't watch FOX, but I can tell you that ALL the weather persons are drama queens when there are storms in the offing.
What is the most obvious non-physical trait you picked up from one of your parents?
My lack of patience from my dad and my love for Dixieland Jazz from him, too.
I can't say that the media reporting certain occurrences around the world or the possibility of natural disasters is to cause fear, but to prepare for the possible consequences of those happenings. Would it have been better for the media not to have reported on Hurricane Irma (or any other hurricane for that matter)? A lot of lives were likely saved by the media reporting the dire nature of that hurricane and the need for people to evacuate. I think the level to which people take that information and make it a fear is within the person themselves. If you want to be Chicken Little and imagine the sky is falling, you have that right.
Retire when you are no longer good at what you do.
By the way, what did you do with my Dinky Toy dump truck? Hide it on me... again???
LOL ... One of my nephews is the only person I know who broke a Fisher Price truck.
Damn! You were supposed to respond with "If I'm Edith Cortright, who are you?" Then I woulda said "Sinclair Lewis".
LOL ... that reminds me of one of my nieces when she was about 4. We would be playing dolls, we would be moms taking our "children" out to play. She would say, "you say this, and I'll say that, and then you say this, and I'll say that." Before you knew it, the conversation was over.
Ever see Dodsworth? The Walter Huston/Mary Astor version? You are Edith Cortright (Astor)
Never saw it.
See... I LOVE the fact that I don't have to "do" anything or "be" whatever anymore.
Another thing: I no longer nickle-and-dime when it comes to spending money "wisely". I've had enough of scrimping and saving...
I love being able to get up when I want, go where I want and do what I want, but I also enjoy going to work and being around people. Knowing that I can stop working whenever I want is liberating. To be honest, having had to take care of only myself, I've not had to scrimp at all. I've been able to do what I want, travel wherever I want, etc. and still save.
I took early retirement and life has never been rosier. The peace of mind knowing that money (the lack of) won't be an issue sure helps
If you have something that you want to do in retirement, that's great. I've done most of what I wanted to do and now that many friends have either passed away or moved away, and my sisters are still working, there's no one to pal around with. So, for me, continuing to work part-time gives me a reason to get dressed at least three days a week, plus it adds to income and I can still contribute to my 401(k) without having to take anything out yet.
That's a good situation you're in being able to wind down your career by working part-time
I'm fortunate that, at this stage of my life, I have options. All those years of hard work and saving are paying off. :)
Now I have to edit the post... (good answer, btw)
LOL ... sorry about that. There are a lot of people like me who, even though they are way beyond retirement age, would like to keep working, even if it's part time. For me, it's less a financial reason than keeping my head in the game and my job is pretty easy these days.
I hope tor retire long before then. :)
When do you know it is time you should see a doctor?
If I'm bleeding profusely or I can't stop it, the doctor is a good idea. If it isn't life threatening, I try to wait a couple of weeks to see if it resolves itself. If not, I make a doctor appointment.
What rumor about yourself would you do nothing to correct?
That I look like a Victoria's Secret model.
Well, it's been over 2 years since Sodahead had folded, Are you still missing it?
I miss the larger, diverse member base. I didn't like the way they shut us out without warning, but there were a lot of great people on that site.
When was the last time someone asked you to come, hither.
What do you feel like complaining about?
I have a smart phone but i don't use most things on it... lol
That's what i do too, fix it the night before and turn it on in the morning..
When i drink coffee at around 4 pm, i just fix it and turn it on..
If my old flip phone ever goes, I don't know what I'm going to do. Sometimes, too much technology is stultifying.
I only drink two cups in the morning, so I don't have to worry about it later in the day. :)
I know...mine does that and i don't use it..
It has so many buttons, it probably makes biscuits too..
I just don't mess with it..
LOL ... now you know why I don't have a smart phone. My coffee maker doesn't have a timer, but I set it up the night before and as I head to the front door to pick up the paper, I turn it on. By the time I finish washing up and brushing my teeth, coffee is ready.
