Yeah, sometimes I feel they’re smarter than and more capable than I am lol. They can remember and do so much!

If you were dropped off in a foreign country, and you knew their language fluently.... but only could communicate using one mode of communication — reading, writing, speaking or listening.... which would you choose to survive being there ?

That would be pretty difficult only having one and not the coordinating one (reading and writing vs. speaking and listening/hearing). I guess I'd probably have to choose writing. At least then I could show some notebook to the person I'm communicating with. They might think I'm deaf and mute, but at least they'd know what I want. The problem would be that if they tried to write a response back, I wouldn't know how to understand it. Quite problematic and they'd be very perplexed.

If you could speak an additional language fluently (above the one(s) you already speak), which one would it be and why?

I avoid them because of animal cruelty. Something like cirque de soliel I'd go for though.

Do you have a birthmark?

2009- 2010 lasted 6 months. Was not my finest time in life couldn't get out of bed, could eat, could drink, couldn't sleep just lay there crying. Suicidal constantly. Write my first suicide note (not my finest moment I have to say) I regret it further consequences I faced afterwards. I lost my friends and job ultimately for it.

Question: Have you had a BBQ this year?

At least one. The one I remember was to grill homemade Kafta (Kofta) Kabobs along with some grilled veggies. I love Kafta Kabob! We only have a charcoal grill.

What outdoor smells do you like most?

Autumn leaves, some flowers and the smell of the air after a good rain.

Do you like streetcart food?

I tend to leave them alone.

growing up, I was always told that they probably arn't the best environments for preparing food, and you could get ill. that said: I have had some burgers from such places and been fine, not as good as a cafe though- no where near.

do you go to a fireworks event/ do them yourself on july 4th?
