It’s Friday. Again. THANK GOD!
That means it’s time for Friday 5! I haven’t been participating in the Friday 5 for a while, but there was a lot going on. You know, Podcamp, illnesses, drama, elections, you know… the norm. So, in keeping with the NaBloPoMo spirit, here it is! You can find the original prompt at Friday 5!
1. What usually marks the middle of your day? Uh… Lunch. That’s pretty standard, I would think. Or isn’t it? Am I missing something? What’s going on, please?
2. From whom (or to whom) was your most recent middle-of-the-night phone call? Ha. You’d love to know, wouldn’t you? Wouldn’t you….
3. On what social, political, economic, or moral issue are you in the middle of the road? I am not middle of the road about anything, really. I have my opinions, I look at issues and evaluate them based on the facts, and what side of the argument/issue/crisis/debate I think is most logical and fair to those involved, and I choose to defend it. That’s the problem with being able to see multiple sides to most conflicts/arguments. I’m all about finality and decisions, and I don’t really understand how people can waiver or be “middle of the road.”
4. How likely are you to give someone your middle finger? Not likely. As Mah Daddy used to say (hell, still says), “You went to school for most of your life, and you can’t come up with a better way to express yourself than through vulgarity?” Flipping someone off always seemed… childish and unladylike. That’s just me though.
5. When were you last caught in the middle of a disagreement that really had nothing to do with you? Really? Really?! How about all of 2008? Yeah, that sounds about right. If it wasn’t one thing, it was another. Whether it’s someone throwing blame around without taking any of it, or someone calling me every night to try and “persuade” me that a third person is wrong about an issue I have nothing to do with, and couldn’t care less about, I tend to get dragged into things pretty quickly. What have I learned, boys and girls? The drama of others can only affect you if you allow it.
