1.) Why all the UPS guys have nice legs? Is it like a prerequisite for those guys or ladies for that matter, to have nice legs at the time of hire. I cannot tell you how many UPS men and women I have seen in my work week and every single one has nice legs. lol Maybe it is the brown material reflecting the tone of their skin. lol Okay, these are just things I think about on my commute into work in the morning, so anwer a few other silly questions for me....I guess this was number one.lol
2.) What is your favorite nut? (peanut, almond, pastachio, walnuts...)
My personal favorite is walnuts, but I will eat a pound of cashews without blinking.
3.) Scenerio: IF you have a child that attends school. Let's say a 10 year old and you live in a fairly small town. The school is located directly one street over. You have a path that leads into the woods behind your home to the school. Maybe a 5-7 minute walk to the school on this path. Would you allow your 5th grader or older to walk to school, or would you drive them everyday around the block and to the front?
Well, my answer is sort of both. Depending on how mature my children are at 10 or so, will depend greatly on this. I would say yes, but only a few times a week. I would feel uncomfortable allowing my child to walk to school, without knowing who is watching them or waiting to kidnapp them. I am from the city, but live in the outskirts of the city in a small town. I have the big city sort of instincts about the world and would still protect my children the same either or. I just think that people get too comfy in small towns and forget that crimes happen anywhere.
4.) Which brings me here to the last question. Have you heard the story about the woman that killed two out of three of her kids with a rock. Beat them to death in the head, and the infant around 7 or 8 months old was in his crib with a head wound, but still alive. The father was supposedly unaware and sleeping while this went on. The reports say this family went to church and were close to all the people in their community and that there had never been reports of mental problems with this mother. So, something like a perfect family and this happens. Why do you think we seem shocked to find out that people who say they are holy and decent, commit these crimes, and against children at worst?
WE think if someone attends church every Sunday, they are "good". Someone volunteers with kids, or elderly people, we think they are saints. Someone who goes out of their way for others, cant be crazy.....no. We are all humans and imperfect in every way possible. Once we stop putting so much pressure on people to be a certain way or have a certain amount of things by a certain age, then maybe we will have less people loosing their minds and killing their kids. Peer pressure, we as a society define the very meaning of that phrase. Okay, thats me. Now your turn. Feel free to speak your mind as always. I want candid opinions here. Put yourself into the scenerio in #3, and even in # 4. How do you really feel?
