Friday Feast 39 is served...
Appetizer: Where do you go when you want to relax?
One thing is for sure. I am NOT a bathtub relaxer. It just doesn't do it for me, on any kind of regular basis. And who has the time?
Answer 1 (Short Distance) -- The backyard swing. There is nothing finer. Except in winter, when it just doesn't work out so well.
Answer 2 (Medium Distance) - -The car. Can you believe it? When you get in a car, there is nothing else to do but drive. Sure, there is traffic with all those huddled masses yearning to be free, and there is construction and tollbooths and whatever. But I know that once I finally make it to the car, all frantic plotting, planning, packing, worrying, etc. is done. It's time to drive.
Answer 3 (Long Distance) -- Sure, you'd think I'd say Hatteras, North Carolina. But for total relaxation there is one answer better than that: The Hatteras-Ocracoke Ferry. On the water. Someone else doing the driving (or the ferrying, in this case). Nothing else to do but stand at the front of the boat with the wind and the waves and if you're very very very lucky...a few dolphins to join you for the trip across.
Soup: Tell about something that made you laugh this week
This probably doesn't sound funny to you at all. But I guarantee that when BSTuna reads this, she is going to be cracking up.
Answer: Last night driving home, I geared up for an enormous sneeze. Which I sneezed. And then I yawned. And then I laughed.
Salad: What is your favorite texture?
This is a very odd question, which will get a very odd answer.
Answer: Unwashed fleece. Now, let me explain. Sheep wool has a high degree of lanolin (ala hand lotion) which makes it very, uh...lanoliny. Combine that with the fluff of the wool and it is strange and wonderful all at the same time.
Main Course: If you were to publish an autobiography, what would the first sentence be?
Call Me Ishmael.....
Once upon a time....
Long ago in a galaxy far, far away....
Answer: But wait, there's more!
Dessert: Do You Celebrate St. Patrick's Day? If so, How?
Unlike SOME people I know, I do not go for the St. Patty's Day Bender, visiting every watering hole within walking/stumbling/crawling distance.
Answer: Corned Beef and Cabbage, Baby!
