7 Questions.....Answered by Moi

I am jumping on the fun, happening bandwagon and joining Gentri Lee today for her weekly Seven Questions party.
It looks fun and I want to fit in with the young, cool folk.
Because, in my head, I am totally not 37-ish.
In my head, I am still rockin it at 22.
Is "rockin it" a cool term?

1. Bold or Understated?
Sadly, everything about me is understated. I don't have much colour in my wardrobe and my makeup routine consists of under eye concealer and Blistex. My hair is the same style it has been for 20 years...with a few grays added in. When in a crowd, I prefer to hide out in the corner. 
Sad, I know.
One day, maybe I will dress in these colours, have the confidence of a Kardashian and actually learn how to put on eye makeup.
But don't count on it.

2. You have to survive alone in the wild and you only get to take one thing with you. Your choices are: A Pocket Knife, a Water Bottle, or a Book. Which do you choose and why?
Oh man.  This was a tough one. 
I choose a pocket knife because if a snake comes near me, I will have no choice but to chop it up.
I do not enjoy wild creatures that could possibly eat me.

3. Thirty Two Cows, Seven Eight Chickens, How Many Didn't?

4. Would you rather die doing one legendary act of service or do small acts of kindness that may go unnoticed every day? Ummmm....I would totally do small acts of kindness, for two reasons.  One, because it makes me feel good.  Two, because I am understated and prefer to go unnoticed.

5. Happiness is _______. (one word; fill in the blank)
Specifically Kit Kat chocolate bars, but any chocolate will do thank you very much.

6. Can you laugh without smiling?
This is my attempt.
{Please ignore the zits and triple chins}

I know. That was probably the creepiest video you have ever seen.
I will have nightmares of myself doing that for the next month.

7. Do you pop your knuckles?
Not on purpose.
Should I?
Is that what the cool peeps do?

If I was a good blogger and grand daughter in law I would have dedicated an entire post to this handsome fellas 96th birthday yesterday.
But, I suck.
96 years old.
Which means he has lived 35 years longer than my dear Daddy did.
We love him.
Cherish him.
And I am pretty sure he can laugh without smiling.

Also linking up with Alicia, because I like her.

Question 3 was real? I thought that is was a mistake. Hmmmm...

Laughing without smiling. I could do it, but it would be an evil laugh.

Maybe you are understated in person, but you have a tremendous personality and it shines in your blog!
