In an effort to regulate my blogging, I have designated Thursday as Answer WordPress Prompts Day. Here’s today’s batch.
If you could take a break from your life and go back to school to master a subject, what would it be?
Cooking. I can do it, sort of; but I hate it. I cook because I love my family. Maybe I should go back to school and master time travel instead! I could then go back in time to August 17th, 1982 and not meet the Hub in a car park; not fall in love, not marry and not have children. Result: no cooking!
Nah. It could never happen. I’m even worse at physics than I am in a kitchen.
If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it?
No and yes. No, because I’m delicate and tire easily. Yes, if I could move house regularly. I like moving house: the perfect opportunity to declutter. One of these moves, I might even accidentally leave the Hub behind (Spud leaves home next year for university so if I offload the Hub…no cooking!).
Do you need a home base?
Of course; how else could I recharge my batteries and have the perfect Malteser hidey-hole?
What makes a place “home” to you?
It’s the place where I cook. Talk about your Catch-22.
What’s your favorite part about visiting a new place — the food? The architecture? The people watching?
- The food – yes. Not having to cook will always find favour with me.
- The architecture – yes. There is nothing more beautiful than the bricks surrounding an affordable restaurant.
- The people watching – no. I don’t like to eat in company in case I get crumbs in my moustache; to have people watching me eat would make me too nervous.
Finish this sentence: “My closest friend is…”
My closest friend is an excellent cook. In fact, all of my friends are excellent cooks. It must be like craving coal when you’re pregnant: the body steers you towards what it’s missing.
After spending time with a group of people, do you feel energized and ready for anything or do you want to hide in the corner with a good book?
Depends how good their food was.
Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to?
Leonardo’s The Last Supper. Obviously.
What does it say to you?
“Tilly, you can love Jesus and food. But hearing frescos speak is not a good sign…”
Describe the experience.
I typed ‘the last supper’* into Google Images and there it was.
*Not even I am anal enough to use capital letters in a search engine.
(Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)
Because I’m not crazy. The question ‘What does it say to you?’ refers.
