If I looked on your bed right now, what would I find?
A pile of crumpled covers, and quite likely a black cat.

It depends. No one in our house is shy, so I don’t think much on it one way or the other.
Are your clothes ironed?
Sleep on your back or stomach?
Ever since I got the CPAP, on my back. However, without the CPAP, I cannot sleep on my back at all, so for years I slept on my side or my stomach.
Are you a cuddler?

Several someones love me. I am blessed beyond words.
What were you doing before this survey?
Well, let’s see. First, I was born, and then several years of being an infant followed. Later, I was a child…at some point I went to college. It’s all a bit of a jumble at this point.
What will you do after the survey?
More of the same sort of thing, I imagine. I really don’t expect this to change my life much.

We decided to do both. Being married and living apart would kinda suck.

Oh, you can bet I believe it too.
Do you de-label your beer bottles?
Is this like taking the labels off all the canned vegetables, so you never know what you’re having for dinner?
Do you talk about your feelings or hide them?
Mostly I talk about them. People likely wish I’d hide them more often.
Is there something you regret and wish you could take back?
There are many things I regret. But most of the things I regret taught me valuable things, or else moved me to be in a place for later brilliant things to happen. So I’m a bit hesitant to suggest I’d like to take them back.
In retrospect, I don’t regret the things I’ve done nearly as much as the things I didn’t do.

Do you hate someone?
No. Life’s too short.

I don’t think the clerks at the store would appreciate that. Even if bottled water *is* a scam.
When you shut off your alarm clock, do you tend to fall back asleep?
My alarm clock is kitanzi , so I don’t ever shut her off. I do sometimes fall asleep again, though.
If you were given the chance to take care of a monkey for a weekend, would you?
My monkey is the only one who has nothing to hide, other than myself.

No, I believe in changing the rules of the game.

Whichever side is closest to me. You get the same amount of blood.
