We've been kind of quiet around here so I thought we should have some fun. 

What's the greatest invention ever?

If you could bring someone from the past back, who would you bring back and why?

What's the one mundane chore you hate to do the most?

What's your favorite candy?

What's your favorite Girl Scout cookie?

I'll start.

Greatest invention ever for me right now is tissue with lotion in it.  I've been sick.  I'm also worshipping Robitussin right now so...

I'm not sure who I would want to bring back from the past.  I have a list of five people from the past I'd like to have a meal with.  I think it would either be Edison so I could show how much we appreciate so many of his inventions and how we give him credit for things he didn't even do, so he could get the last laugh over his competitors.  They may have won back then but they aren't getting the credit for it.  Kind of ironic and I'm a fan of irony.  Or I would bring back Nostradamus and ask him what the heck he was doing?  That way we could find out once and for all if he was a genius psychic or if his writings were just meant to apply to his world in his day.  Of course we would have to bring him back before he went mad. 

There are so many mundane chores I hate but I think cleaning the bathroom is the one on top of the list.  Probably because with two males in the house and one bathroom, and this is a daily chore.   Second would be the litter box.  Really, no one else can do this?   I was sick with fever and still I had to go out in the rain to clean the litter box. 

My favorite candy is caramel.  Pretty much anything with caramel in it I will eat.  Rolo's, Milkyways, chocolate covered caramel, it really does not matter.

So you would think from my last answer that I would say Samoa's are my favorite Girl Scout cookie but I hate coconut with a passion.  I have however become addicted to Dulce de Leche.  Now if they just covered that in chocolate, it would be the perfect cookie.  I'm just saying, it's good now but...

What's the greatest invention ever?  I'd have to say, the ability to harness and use electricity.  

If you could bring someone from the past back, who would you bring back and why?  Any ancestors who died before my time.  I would like to know more about my heritage...who they were and what made them tick, when and why they came to the US (but that's going waaaaaay back...I have a Mayflower ancestor and I know I have Dutch ancestors who were also early settlers), and what character traits did I inherit from them?

What's the one mundane chore you hate to do the most? Cleaning the house.

What's your favorite candy? Sweet tarts.  I really do love chocolate but I have to be careful of when I eat it because it can trigger migraines.

What's your favorite Girl Scout cookie?  The peanut butter ones, whatever they're called.

Hi Sue!  Great Answers.  I think this year there are two types of peanut butter cookies.  I got my son the ones that are made like Oreo's but with peanut butter in the middle and a peanut butter cookie.  I don't remember what they are called because he ate them really fast.  

I already know how my ancestors got here and why they came.  I even know their names.  We have stories about them.  That reminds me of when we were teenagers and roll our eyes and repeat the story that was going to be told and then laugh and laugh.  Good times!

I actually like dusting.  I have to wear a mask but there is something satisfying in seeing all that dust go away.

I love candy.  I just love it all.  My mother asked me if there was a candy I wouldn't eat.  We were talking about Bit-O-Honey's and I said that I didn't think that was a great candy but I eat it.  LOL!   I don't eat Almond Joy's.  The coconut thing.    I have to be careful with the migraines too.  However,if I already have the migraine, I'm downing all the chocolate I want and soda too!
