Tagging along

I get grumpy when I'm tagged. This one from Boni put me on the spot last week.

It's too much like a chain letter, and I'm pretty private about some of these things. So I thought about it for a few days, filled it out for a couple, then thought whether to post it for a few more.

Then I got nailed as least likely to respond. So, from guilt or being perverse I'll post it. But....

1. I'm not tagging anybody, I still don't much like this game, and

2. The questions and answers are in the comments because the post was too long.

Now don't you feel like a teenager again Kap?

Boni said...

I hate tags too, but it took my mind off some things for a bit and made me do something I absolutely detest-focus on myself. Sorry for the anxiety. Thanks for making the kill so swift and painless:)

KAP said...

I've never stopped feeling like a teenager. It's just that now I feel my age the next day.

Oh, a mistake. My eyes are grey-blue.

Strange that: my son had the same eyes when he was born and they gradually changed to brown. I didn't know it worked that way. It was so gradual I kept asking myself "when did that happen?"

Thanks for taking the time. I enjoyed your favorite noise answer. Kids playing outside in that special twilight hour (my translation) You hit my sweet spot, there. I'll pass on the Salami, though. True enough, I pass mine to the missus.
