Greetings to one and all
What was the last "really stupid" question someone asked you ? well, it wasn't to me directly, and it was here at CD, so, I will "be nice" and not reveal

What was the last thing that made you say Wow, I did not know this ? Given my answer below, I thought this said "wow, I did not THROW this"

I am/was the first person in my family to _________ ? throw a rock at a car (child - let's hope i was first and last), snorkel, ride a zip line, walk on an active lava flow

Watermelon: Seedless or seeds ? seeds
Wine: Red or white ? either but tend toward red lately - pinot noir is good year round because it's not too heavy
Beer: Bottled or canned ? tap but only some - it makes me sneeze.
Import or domestic ? import boddingtons or micro-brew in a bottle (because my guy likes that so I'll taste his)
Chocolate: Milk or Dark ? both - just don't call white "chocolate" - it's not - it's just sweet fat.

Today's Question(s):

What was the last "really stupid" question someone asked you ?
There are so many - I don't remember. I guess it would have to be
the one just asked by Moderator cut: private information in the thread about eating fat.
Message to me after I gave my opinion that eating that much fat is bad for you...I quote: Nothing like a THREADJACKER to take the fun out of posting!
Where ARE the moderators?

(Unquote).... Gee, I'm guilty of having an opinion - call the police!

Move far away, across the country, to live on my own.

Today's Question(s):

What was the last "really stupid" question someone asked you ? Someone asked me how old I was, yet again, last week. It seemed stupid for them to ask that question in the "work context" that we were in. (I will admit that I look younger than I am, but that question really gets annoying.)

Bonus Question:
Haven't asked this on in awhile, so it is time

What was the last thing that made you say

Wow, I did not know this ? Not sure. But, I typically learn something new every week. So, it must have been last week.

Extra Credit Question:

I am/was the first person in my family to graduate college.

Just for Fun:

Watermelon: Seedless or seeds ? Neither
Wine: Red or white ? Red
Beer: Bottled or canned ? Neither
Import or domestic ?
Chocolate: Milk or Dark ? Dark (YUM)

"What do you mean, I have to turn in paperwork to support my inventory cost changes?? I don't have time for that kind of thing - you figure it out."

I saw something in the "Tip of the day" thread about bananas making your perspiration more attractive to mosquitoes, which was quite interesting. And it gives me one more reason not to eat them (I've never liked them anyway).

Extra Credit Question:

I am/was the first person in my family to
become an accountant.

Everyone else in my family does/did interesting things, like nursing, professional investigator, PhD chemist and college professor, IT management and the like. I'm the only boring one in the bunch.

Curious Minds Question:

Do you:
Mow first then edge & weed-whack?
or
Edge & weed-whack then mow?


Well, my spouse and I usually team up on this task, with him doing the mowing and me doing the weed-whacking. I prefer to get out there and do the edges before he mows, but don't mind following around on clean-up.

Just for Fun:

Watermelon: Seedless or seeds?
Oh, they're both good, though if I'm making a fruit salad, the seedless is definitely easier to handle.
Wine: Red or white? That really depends on what I'm eating with it. Last night, I fixed chicken piccata and we served a lovely crisp white with it. Friday night, the spouse grilled steaks, and we served a robust and flavorful red with it.
Beer: Bottled or canned? Well, by choice I prefer draught, but if it must be in a container, I prefer bottled.
Import or domestic? Domestic without question - I live in Wisconsin, and believe me, the local craft beers here are at least as good if not better than most imports.
Chocolate: Milk or Dark? Oh, dark always!
