Asking For Trouble.

Nick at Nickhereandnow forgot to include my name in his list of blogmates who may wish to take up the challenge of answering some questions. I am not one to hold grudges and despite his forgetting me, I shall answer the questions on his blog. I now have no choice in the matter any way, since Grannymar has thrown the gauntlet at me.

1: Do you prefer asking questions or answering them?
Neither. I just want to be left alone.
2: What is your favourite joke (or favourite one-liner)?
Count me out.
3: Have you ever fantasised about being on Big Brother?
I am the big brother.
4: Have you ever wanted to enter a talent show?
I am totally without talents.
5: Is Simon Cowell really necessary?
I don’ know him or about him.
6: Tea or coffee?
Tea, the Indian way.
7: What is your favourite perfume? Or smell?
Jasmine on moonlit nights.
8: What is the quickest route to Wales from where you live?
Pune to Mumbai by road, an airplane to London and train from there should be the logical route.
9: What does the word ‘Wales’ conjure to your mind?
My friend Hywel.
10: Are you dreading dreaming up ten questions to ask six bloggers?
Have a heart! I can’t think of even one.

Nick’s take on the last question -“Ten new questions for other people, eh? Is five enough, miss? Give us a break, miss.”

1: Do you believe in life after death?
No. The I does not die.
2: Do you believe in fate?
3: Do you ever have dejà vu?
4: Have you ever read someone’s mind?
No. Never tried to either.
5: Have you ever had a premonition?
Yes. Often.

Now to answer Grannymar’s questions, I have decided to take her suggestion that the seven are for seven days of the week and shall answer one every day next week commencing Monday. I shall try and make the answers as elaborate as possible. Thank you Grannymar for giving me seven ideas for blog posts next week.

I understand that in this game, one must ask some questions for other readers to keep the chain going. I shall ask one question and leave as many readers as are interested to write one post on “What do you get out of blogging.”

My suggestion to Nick and Grannymar:

Cowboy Joe!

In my Grannymar post I received this comment from Conrad – “Gun totin’ GM and Cowboy Joe – Mayo was elected to that title our Senior year of High School, a most coveted title in our neck of the woods. Being an Indian, do you think you should encourage that?”

Conrad, I am the original Indian, not the Red variety that Cowboy Joe might have confronted in his prime. So, I have no opinion on your question on that score. You must really find yourself a Cherokee or someone like that.

I save that particular response for this blog and in my earlier blog, I answered – “Now, we need to do something about cowboy Joe shouldn’t we? Let me put on my creative cap and see what I can come up with.”

This is what I have come up with.


Conrad, do you think that he has lived up to his potential? Or should we leave that answer to Corky?
