What makes someone a friend?

What do you do for a pick-me-up?

Have you ever accidentally left a purchase or part of one at a store, and if so, can you remember an example? Were you able to go back and get it?

This one may be tough. I put it last so it's easier to skip. Can you come up with an imaginary

Today's Question(s):

The older we get the more opinionated we might become, thus “yes” we might not find real friends like we did when younger.

What makes someone a friend?
Usually someone who you can trust and believe in; like interests are helpful but not necessary.

What do you do for a pick-me-up?
Cold drink, relaxing, and a nap works well. Now if your question is one for the ladies of the night walking on the streets of a large city, that’s a different answer.

Have you ever accidentally left a purchase or part of one at a store, and if so, can you remember an example? Were you able to go back and get it?
Wow, I don’t remember ever doing that. If I spent money on something I’ll keep always take it with me out of the store. I did have a notebook that I left at a coffee shop and later that day drove back to get it; that was not a purchase but something that I had brought in with me.

Oh goodness! That’s hard, maybe beef wellington with mixed vegetables and small red potatoes and a dessert of crème brulee.

Today's Question(s):

Yes, I'd say so. When you're in school, you are surrounded by contemporaries and that makes friendships easier. It's not impossible to make new friends when you're older, but it takes more effort.
What makes someone a friend?
Someone who cares about you and will be there for you if you need a favor or a shoulder to cry on. Someone you care enough about to do the same for them.
What do you do for a pick-me-up?
A cup of coffee or tea.
Have you ever accidentally left a purchase or part of one at a store, and if so, can you remember an example? Were you able to go back and get it?
Yes, there were times when I've bought groceries, but one item didn't make it into my bag. Usually I just let it go unless it's something expensive. I've also had the opposite happen, where an item I didn't buy somehow ends up in my bag. I called the store and offered to return the item, but they said "Never mind. Just keep it."

Pan flute

If you could only have one - would you rather have a maid, a chef or a chauffeur?
A maid would be nice. I don't mind cooking and driving.
Foodie Question(s):
What would you like a personal chef to prepare for your household?
Individual entrees that I can freeze for times when I am ill and/or don't feel like cooking.

Yeah. As we get older we might be more choosy who we want to be our friend. Young people are content with 5,000 friends on FB... lol

What makes someone a friend?

Someone who genuinely cares about you and is for you there when you need it.

What do you do for a pick-me-up?

I don't do pick-me-up

Have you ever accidentally left a purchase or part of one at a store, and if so, can you remember an example? Were you able to go back and get it?

Not that I can remember. I watch my stuff and the cash register like a hawk. Make sure the prices are right, the discounts are deducted. If possible, I bag my own stuff.


Pan Am


If you could only have one - would you rather have a maid, a chef or a chauffer?

Definitely a maid, and I have one.
I like to drive and love to cook.


Foodie Question(s):
What would you like a personal chef to prepare for your household?

Hmmm, good question. I can cook almost anything myself. Probably something very fancy and elaborate, just to get spoiled once in a while.

Actually, I see it in the reverse.

What makes someone a friend?
They share your interests and are there when you need them.

I don't do anything for a pick me up. I could use a pick me up though with my aching knees and back these days.
Have you ever accidentally left a purchase or part of one at a store, and if so, can you remember an example? Were you able to go back and get it?
Don't recall anything in particular but surely it's happened.
