Toosdae ?'s

I know that the other day I said that my life was perfect, but today my life is perfect. The end.

1. Assuming you will be using a stall in a public restroom: Do you use the designated handicapped stall if the others are being used, or do you wait?

2. Finish this sentence: "I have never been..."

3. Would you rather always lose or never play?

My answers...

1. I'll be honest here and say that I typically use the handicapped stall in a busy restroom unless there is someone in the line behind me that looks as though they need it. I think that in most situations people should wait their turn anyway and having a special bathroom doesn't automatically give them a pass. Which is why I am mindful of who is behind me in the line before taking up the only space they have to go to the bathroom.

2. "I have never been someones little sister."

3. I would rather always lose. Though losing is not fun, sitting on the sidelines always looking on is worse. Never being the winner would weigh on me a bit, especially if we are talking about life and not games, but still-looking back at my life years from now I want to be able to say "At least I tried" instead of "What if?"

1. I'll use whatever stall is open if I know I'm only going to take a minute or two. If I'm in there for the long haul, I would probably not use the handicapped stall, just in case.

2. I have never met my birth mother but I'm not giving up the search.

3. I would probably not play. I always have a book with me and I'd enjoy some good time reading instead of beating my head against a brick wall knowing that it's not going to end well.

1- Yes I will use the handicapped stall. I'm of the opinion that most handicapped people are capable of waiting for a minute. Not all... but most. I try to be conscious of who is in line behind me also.

2- I have never been more at peace than I am today. And I hope I say that every day for the rest of my life, regardless of the turns and ups and downs that will surely take place in the journey.

3- I would rather always lose. I think there's a lot more insight that comes with loss than winning and for sure more insight with losing than you'd gain sitting on the sidelines. I always love opportunities to gain insight and wisdom. Plus, how boring would that be to never engage yourself? Always watch the action and never participate? No thanks.

I use it. It's not mandated by law, its just a courtesy. I tend to use it even more now, even if the bathroom is not busy because I can pull the stroller in with me. Its really hard to use a public restroom when you are out with a baby. I like that a lot of places have the new Family Bathrooms!!

2. Finish this sentence: "I have never been..."

I have never been to Florida.

3. Would you rather always lose or never play?

Always lose.

1. I use it. Many times I gotta go bad...

2. Finish this sentence: "I have never been... overly excited about reality TV"

3. I'm a loser

So glad that your life is going so well. I knew you would get there...

1. Depends where I am. At a restaurant - I'll not use the handicapped stall.

2. I have never been famous, a little brother, or wealthy. All of which would have been nice.

3. I'd rather lose all the time - because there's always, then, a chance to win. It's like playing the lottery. I will almost certainly never win - but you can't get hit by the freight train of life if you don't stand on the tracks.

1. Depends on the situation, but usually I use it if it's the only one available and the place looks busy and nobody looks like they particularly need it.

2. I have never quite fit in.

3. Always is a long time... I mean you never know when always is going to be over so you have to keep playing because you might win next time. Looking back on an always of losing is depressing though.

1. I have though I have also waited

2. to Australia

3. I think I would rather lose, not playing is no fun

1) I use it but I wouldnt if a handicap person was waiting
2) "I have never been happy with my body"
3) Always lose. I often do lose, but whats the fun of always watching? Your making memories even if you dont win.

Ivanhoe said...

1. I use it.
2. I have never been to Australia.
3. Always loose. I'm not a big competitor anyways...
I'm glad your life is still perfect :)

1. I don't generally use the stalls in public restrooms, but if circumstances dictate, I use the handicapped stall and don't feel guilty. My knees are creaky enough that I feel more comfortable with that steel bar...just in case.

2. I have never been even mildly interested in going skydiving.

3. Well, I did a lot of losing when I played football. I'd rather lose than never play.

And just as an observation...my word verification was "renthope", which seems like something a person might do until they can convince themselves that they have real hope they can live in every day.
