Altoids peppermint gum and black coffee don't really taste good together.
Today is Chinese New Year, so it's Chinese food for supper this evening. That was easy.
I was looking at my own Facebook page a little more closely than usual today and I saw this list of questions from a third-party application. I didn't play along, but the premise is that you have to have so many "coins" in order to find out who answered the questions. Here are some of the questions that intrigued me.
Do you think Caron can throw a football with a spiral? Yes
This person is seriously confused or has never met me.
Do you think Caron has ever punched someone? Yes
Wow, thank you for thinking I'm not a delicate flower. I would love to be super intimidating in a physical presence sort of way for when I join the CIA and carry a weapon or go to sniper school. I have never actually hit anyone in anger. The one time I can think of in my life when most people thought I should have slapped someone, it didn't even occur to me because I was so shocked by her behavior.
Do you think Caron prefers Coke to Pepsi? No
This person knows me? Hmmmmmm. I despise Pepsi and haven't had one in more than 20 years.
Do you think Caron can do 20 pushups? Yes
I adore you, whoever you are. Air kisses for you.
Do you think Caron speeds when driving? Yes
Oh sure, who doesn't?
Do you think Caron is hyper? Yes
This must be someone who knew me in high school because I am now Zen-like in my own calm and serene freaking way.
Do you think Caron swears like a sailor? No
Mom, is that you? Because, well you know, little pitchers have big ears.
Do you think Caron would turn you in to the FBI if they asked? No
Don't go getting all cocky and everything. I might. I am very loyal, but if you've messed me around one time too many, I most certainly will. I may even give them a call just to ruin your day.
Would you trust Caron with your life? Yes
Ability, people! I can do CPR, but that's just about the whole list. If your life depended on me running 26 miles to get help, you are in really big trouble, my friend.
Do you think Caron thinks wine in a box is classy? No
So now you think imma snob? It may not be classy, but it is practical and I am practical all the way, all day. It keeps the wine fresh, people.
Do you think Caron owns a nice car? Yes
Except that it's going to kill me. OK, that's not funny. But my car has issues: 'epic fail' is written all over it now.
Do you think Caron has ever taken money for a bribe? No
No, I haven't but how much are we talking? Who's offering and what's the bribe? Details, please.
Do you think Caron is a tree hugger? Yes
I confuse people like that. I am, yet I'm not. I'm a conundrum.
