TMI Tuesday - 9/19

What would you do?

1. You encounter a good looking lost and frantic tourist looking for the airport. You:
A) Shrug your shoulders, feigning ignorance.
B) Find the shortest route on your smartphone and get him/her a cab.
C) Direct him/her to the nearest bus stop.
D) Get your car, pick up him/her luggage and speed to the airport.
I think B is the closest to what I'd actually do, though I'd want to do D. I think I'd be too wary about taking someone I didn't know alone in my car, though.

2. You’re taking a vacation alone. Your destination:
A) Beach resort — I just want to relax and de-stress.
B) A group tour — I don’t want to worry about the details.
C) Wherever the dart lands on the map.
D) Every country with a hostel — my backpack is my home.
Hmmmm. None of these. If I were taking a vacation alone, it would be to someplace I've always wanted to go and it would be very organized. I'd know about the place, how to get around, where things are on the map, what I'd like to do and see while I'm there. I'd know how much the admissions to things were and what the opening hours would be and I'd probably have sites grouped by area so that I could get as much into each excursion as possible. Then I might choose to do nothing at all once I'm there, but I'd be prepared if I did want to. It would be like the group tour, without the group....combined with the beach resort headspace of relaxing and de-stressing.

3. Blackout! You can’t watch TV, so you light some candles and:
A) Dig up some batteries and listen to the radio.
B) Invite the neighbors, light a fire and sing camping songs all night.
C) Find a friend and play games that don’t require electricity. . . Like chess.
D) Drive to the next town — oh sweet Wi-Fi, I’ve found you!
Chances are I'd read by candlelight, but if I had to choose one of these answers, I'd go with C and hope they would enjoy something more...stimulating...than chess - in which case, a fire would be nice, too.

4. The man/woman of your dreams has finally proposed. The relationship is perfect, they are everything you’ve ever dreamed of and ever wanted. They are also a multi-millionaire and want you to sign a prenuptial agreement. Which would you do?
A) Sign it
B) Just not get married
I'd sign it. I'm not interested in what people have, just who they are. If they are who I think they are, they would provide for me if something went wrong anyway...and if they didn't? Well, I'm a strong independant woman and I'll manage on my own. I'd never fight family, friend or lover for money, even if I were entitled to it. I would not, however, have the same qualms about fighting a corporation or workplace for my due.

5. If you were going to marry an inanimate object, what would you marry?
Note: A woman has married the Eiffel Tower and another has married the golden gate bridge. Read about it HERE
Wow...strange question. I think I'd rather remain single than marry an inanimate object. I'm definitely someone that requires lots of human contact. I've also been accused of being too pragmatic and lacking in imagination, so I think this just wouldn't work out for me.

Bonus: You’ve just inherited a manufacturing plant that specializes in plastics. What are you going to make?
Aaaand another strange question! I'd probably manufacture kitchen implements. Then I could design my own instead of always searching everywhere for cooking utensils that are the exact shape I want, etc. (I know...I'm very anal)

  1. Love your answers! Especially your answer to #3; the thought of having people over for something more stimulating than chess went through our heads as well. Great answer to #4, too; Jill thought pretty much the same thing.
