Disarranging Mine

Monday survived.

Today's Monday Mission:

1. Many children have blankets, or a favorite nubby stuffed animal that they like to keep near them for security. Do you recall what you had for your "security blanket" as a child? When did you finally give it up? What brought that about? I didn't have a security blanket.

2. Now that you are a big kid, what do you have to give you that same sense of security? Peace of mind.

3. With a little over four months left in 2002, have you accomplished everything you wanted to for the year? Is there anything that you would like to accomplish before the year is over? 2002 is a write-off as far as major accomplishments for me. I slacked and, so far, enjoyed every minute of it. 2003, on the other hand, will be, as they say, your year of years. No, I know they don't say that. Actually, it will be my year of years. More about that later.

4. I don't know about you, but it seems to me children have it pretty good these days. Game systems, computers in the home, microwaves, cable TV, the internet, cell phones and pagers, they certainly have a wider variety of technology than most of us did as children. What modern convenience, if any, do you think it would be good for children today to do without? What would they gain? I feel sorry for a kid that's too pampered by modern conveniences. I think there's a lot of value to be gained by kids in "roughing it."

5. Many of us have one thing in which we believe we excel. What do you do better than most? I am the best legal secretary I've ever known. *snort*

6. In the United States, and possibly other countries, teenagers in High School usually wind up falling into several social circles or "cliques." Stoners, Rich Kids, Jocks, Cheerleaders, Band, Drama, Goths, and so on (though the names are probably different today). What High School "clique" did you find yourself in? Was it by choice or did it just happen? Did you look down on other groups? (Aw it's ok, it was/is High School, we all did dumb stuff) In high school I wasn't in any clique. While I didn't and don't look down on them, I didn't want anything to do with them. And, chances are, they didn't want anything to do with me. For the most part, I usually just had one good girlfriend that I palled around with.

7. (it begins) I have great news! I won the contest and we now have plane tickets to anywhere in the world. The bad news is we have to pick a place now and leave in the morning. I can't decide where to go, so you get to pick. Where should we go, and what is the first thing we should do when we get there? Go to a deserted island or nearly deserted island and lay on the beach naked.

BONUS: Must I beg you? No. You only have to ask once, if that.
