Default Qotd

How great that you're helping the kids KwaK! It's another great day in the desert, with temps in the mid-80s projected.

So, what everyday items(s) are you curious about and want to know "How it's made" ? My breakfast cereal.

What is your "superpower " !! ? Optimism.

Do you have clothes in your closet that you keep hoping to either lose a few pounds or that they will come back "in style" so you can wear them again ? Funnily enough, I gave up on Monday and took a bunch of "too small" clothes to Goodwill.

Gas mask; when was the last time you wish you had one ? Cleaning the litter box!

Have you ever had Yorkshire Pudding ? Yum yes -- with roast beef.

Word of the Day:
triskaidekaphobia \tris-ky-dek-uh-FOH-bee-uh\ , noun:
1. Fear or a phobia concerning the number 13. Like on Friday the 13th.

My 'super power'? I do have a very sensitive nose and can smell something not of the ordinary quite often. Sometimes its a good thing, other times, not.
I dont do 'style' or Id be beyond broke all the time trying to keep up. Tank tops and jeans never go out.
Never had Yorkshire pudding and as mentioned yesterday, Im not a real big fan of trying new foods.
