Thursday Thunks...

Berleen's turn to thunk your thinker
Welcome to the January 21st version of Thursday Thunks!
(which we always seem to post on Wednesday)
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!

We pick a subject, and your job is to interpret it anyway you want. Write about it on your blog... simple as that. Maybe you can interpret it as a picture - we don't care!
Please only leave a link if you have written a Thursday Thunks post. Please mention us in your post, and link back to the blog here.
Don't forget to go visit the other participants' blogs. Read and comment about all their Thursday Thunks! Thats what all this is about afterall, isn't it? We'll have so much fun and become lifelong friends....

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the color white chocolate caramel and the number 0.

Did you miss me?- yes baby I did:)

1. Pants on the Ground....
jump up and down?

2. To compliment Kimber's question from last week.... have you ever fell down the stairs?
This is stupid, but I usually fall up the stairs. Seriously. I wind up with bruised shins.

3. Have you ever written to a company about their product? Ever called them?
Yes I've emailed. I emailed Frigidaire about a defective refrigerator and they refunded my money and came and picked it up.

4. Your dog/cat/snake/iguana/pet skunk (or just fill in your pet's species) goes to the vet. Ok, you take them to the vet... most pets wouldn't go on their own. The vet tells you that your species has cancer. Do you:
a. tell them to pull out the needle and put them to sleep on the spot
b. take them home and let them live out their life until the end
c. same as b. except you don't let them get to the suffering stage
d. go full steam ahead with cancer treatments


5. What is your favorite comfort food?
Split pea soup. It's like a warm hug from my Mom. She always made split pea soup in the winter time.

6. If your child was put in jail for putting a gun in their spouses mouth and pulling the trigger (even though the gun wasn't loaded), strangling them and breaking their arm... would you post bail for them?

No bail, no way no how. They need to think about their actions and face the consequences. My sister was arrested in the late 80's when I was still living at home. I don't know all the details, it was mostly kept from me, but I do know 1 was for embezzlement, and 1 was for selling beer to underage kids and coupon fraud. My Dad bailed her out each time. I'm sure the reason why it wasn't discussed with me was because of my hard line and because before those arrests I discovered an embezzlement at my job (where she also worked) and where it was likely her but the owner didn't prosecute to save me from testifying against her.

7. If elephants had wings, how many feathers do you think they would have on each wing?
Why would they need wings, why not just put feathers on their ears?

8. Is there anything growing in your refrigerator right now?
Not likely, we have a teenage son. Odds are pretty good nothing ever gets a chance to grow.

9. What did you do with your Thursdays while we were on a break?
There was a break?

10. Would you donate to the Kimber Ark Building Fund and donate wood? She is about to float away after all...
I would...if I could?

11. If I were to send you a letter and I wanted to put a little heart sticker on the back of the envelope, what color sticker would you like it to be?
Fuschia thanks.
