What inanimate object do you wish you could eliminate from existence?
Hmm…. this is a tough one. I guess something that is mostly useless for everyone like an old-fashioned handset ( telephone). As I know very few people who use it now.
What tells you the most about a person?
I think their shoes! It’s not my own idea, I heard it somewhere that how a person wears and looks after his shoes tells us a lot about them. Like how clean they are or are they in good condition. I have noticed that we can also tell the financial condition of the person as well from their shoes.
What is something you thought would be easy until you tried it?
Writing stories. I used to make up stories in my mind but when it comes to writing them, so that they make good reading and also good sense, it’s not that easy.
What ridiculous and untrue, yet slightly plausible, theories can you come up with for the cause of common ailments like headaches or cavities?
You can get a headache if you watch Trump on your television. Or read too many tweets from him!
Eating celery can cause dental cavities, as it’s tough to chew!
One can loose ones mind if one becomes addicted to online games ( this is probably true!)
GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)What are you grateful for since they ‘cured’ Covid? (yeah, I realize it’s not cured. But at least the vaccine is available and restrictions have eased up in many places. If that’s a good thing or not remains to be seen I suppose).
We still have all the restrictions in place and all the SOPs still to follow because there is a massive surge of covid cases in my country. Though all the three adults in my household have been vaccinated, we still are being very careful.
It was Eid last Thursday and we just had dinner with my children and their families. No big get togethers till we get lots more people vaccinated.
Thanks Melanie for these fun questions.
