Okay, time for another one of these. I didn’t get many questions from readers, in fact, the only question I got was from a friend, but that’s totally fine! I’ve got plenty of questions up my sleeve anyway. Keep in mind that if you ask a question that I answer in a post, I will link back to your blog if you have one. Win-win for everyone, right? 🙂
If you had to choose between losing your sight or your hearing, which would you choose and why? (Asked by Bobbi)
I thought about this one for quite some time actually, because it would be really hard to lose either. But I think my final answer would be to lose my hearing. The thought of losing my hearing is really scary, but at the same time I can still see the beautiful sights of the world, and I can communicate with others through sign language. Losing my sight would in my opinion be worse, because the world is a beautiful place and I don’t want to miss out on seeing it.
Have you ever been in the opposite sex’s public toilet?
Yes, I have. It was at work though, does that still count as a public toilet? It was a long time ago now where the women’s toilet was on the other side of the office, I was tipsy, and I couldn’t really be bothered going there, so I popped in to the men’s toilet. I have to say, it was a lot cleaner than I expected it to be. I’ve always suspected women are messier. I guess I can’t really say unless I check out more men’s bathrooms, which I don’t think is going to happen!
Have you ever been a boy/girl scout?
No, I don’t think that’s a thing in Sweden at all, unless I completely missed out. I went to church school for quite some time, which I actually really enjoyed. I’m not really religious, but I love churches and singing church songs. We even said a few prayers, and I didn’t mind at all. I’m an agnostic, so I have nothing against religion, I’m just not sure if I believe it. Well, that answer went in a completely different direction than I expected! 🙂
Have you ever gone skinny-dipping?
No I haven’t. I don’t really like water. I’m not saying I would go skinny-dipping if I did like water, but it would probably be more likely. I don’t really get the point of it to be honest. I guess it’s about the excitement and the feeling of taboo? Or that you feel a bit more free? I’d be more scared that something was going to touch my private bits and I would freak out, haha.
Do you ask for directions when you are lost?
I ask my phone or GPS, haha. I guess this question would have been more relevant before those existed? I can’t remember the last time I asked an actual person for directions, unless you count Siri as a person. I’ve been asked by others a few times though, mainly older people. I’m always scared of giving out directions, just in case I’ll say something wrong and lead them the wrong way. I know for a fact that I have at least one time.
Have you ever been in a car that ran out of gas?
No I haven’t, but I actually thought about that recently. What actually happens? I’m assuming nothing happens when you step on the gas? I wouldn’t want to find out if I was a long way from home. Jeremy is always very optimistic when it comes to how far the gas in the tank will get us, while I prefer to gas up as soon as it’s on the red line. He always wants to wait until we can get discounts or drive to a place where gas is cheaper.
Do you prefer scrambled or fried eggs?
Hmm… neither? I prefer boiled or poached eggs. But if I had to pick between scrambled or fried, then I’d probably have to pick fried, with a runny yolk. It’s all about the runny yolk for me. I have a boiled egg with breakfast most mornings. When I order breakfast out, I always ask for poached eggs. I would likely eat more poached eggs at home if I was better at making them. Jeremy is pretty good at making them, but I don’t want to ask him to cook my eggs every time!
Would you rather shovel snow or mow the lawn?
I’m going to go ahead and say mow the lawn, even though I’ve never done either. I wouldn’t want to shovel snow simply because I hate being cold. I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if you dressed properly. But mowing the lawn sounds like something you’d do when it’s warmer outside, so I’ll pick that.
Do you drink pepsi or coke?
Coke all the way. I can’t stand Pepsi. Although in saying that, Jeremy challenged me to the coke or pepsi test, where you fill up some cups with all kinds of different cokes and pepsis, and then you have to guess which one is which. I’m not going to lie, it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. If you don’t believe me, you should try it sometime. I think I got confused because the flavour is actually different in New Zealand than it is in Sweden. I think the New Zealand coke is a lot more sugary than the Swedish one.
What’s your favorite number?
Anything with a two in it. I’m not sure why I like the number two so much. It’s just always been a thing. When I go gambling, I always bet on number 2 or a number in the twenties. I lose most of the time, so you’d think I would have learned by now. One day it’ll win me the millions… maybe.
