Sunday Stealing- edited for errata..

The Cool Guy Questions

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog
authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post.

We found this gem our usual way by googling. Our hero CoolGuySevenSevenSev decided to do a random questions thing from his friend's blog, as he said, "So, after doing the crap out of [Raqonteur's 20 random questions]...I decided to try my hand in the 20 random questions field and created this." We'd hazard a guess that "by this" he did not know that our mighty band of thieves would tackle his questions today. These are unedited. I mention that because I usually try to take the author edgier questions off or modify them. Not that you can't handle them, but our experience has told them that no one comes here to reveal things about their own sexuality. Oh, and there's those questions that we've been asked a million times. Our pledge to you is that we will never again ask you to turn to your left and tell us what you see. Or what you had for dinner. If you catch our drift. And my, we are drifting. But I slept 14 hours last night. I have no idea why, but since it's a Wednesday as I write this getting up at 1PM is not acceptable. So we go back to alarms tonight. Please like is on Facebook (details below) and Google Plus in our side bar. Let's get to it!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Cool Guy Questions 

1.) When was the first time you ever swore or said something profane?
I was 13.  A neighbor, and friend of my mothers, heard me say "hell".  She came up to me and said in a low voice, "That doesn't become you." So I made sure no one could ever hear me cuss for a long time after that.

2.) Have you ever had unrequited feelings for someone?/Have you ever been friendzoned?
Of Course.  Isn't that how we learn that we can't always get what we want?

3.) What's a false assumption a lot of people have about you?
Boy, I don't know.  

4.) Have you ever questioned your sexuality?
Nope.  But, I do hope that we can keep a country where it's ok to do that!

5.) If you could bring one person back from the dead, who would it be and why?
No one.  Let them rest in peace.

6.) What did you do on December 12th last year?
I didn't march in New York.

7.) When was the last time you truthfully told someone you hated them?
I haven't hated on anyone for decades.

8.) What is your opinion on this song? What about this song?
First one was down, apparently due to copyright infringement?  The second song is just amazing.  

9.) In less than four sentences, describe the entire plot of the last book you read.
A family of mostly boys lives around the falls at Niagara.  They grow up.  One by one, they go over the falls to their deaths.
 Frankly, I'm reading PollyAnna next.  

10.) Describe the appearance of the most untrustworthy person you can think of (they can be a person you've met or a made up person). Are they male or female or neither? What about their appearance makes them untrustworthy?

11.) What is the most cringe-worthy thing you've ever seen?
One cold morning in the town my family moved to, I saw a dog that had been hit and mangled by a car.  It was horrible.  It looked like a gumby dog, with all legs wrapped, ever which way, around it's broken body.  I looked into it's dead eyes and saw what can only be described as terror there.  

12.) What is your biggest regret?
Not seeing the signs in time.

13.) Do you have any cousins? When was the last time you saw them?
Cousins!  I was just thinking of re-telling the tale of when my Ohio cousins came to visit when I was 15.  Two sisters, and I had a great time together, and Aunt Becky was still alive so she came along with them.  Great Times!  The second part of questions.  My cousin came to visit in the mid-seventies, and that's the last time I saw her, or any other cousins.

14.) Describe the worst birthday you've ever had.
I'd rather not.

15.) When was the last time someone provoked you to the point of violence?
You mean hitting, or something?  I don't know people who are that obnoxious, and have been lucky enough to never have known them.

16.) OH NOES!!!! Someone has gotten you to drink a truth potion and now you have to truthfully answer every question you are asked!!! What's the worst possible question someone could ask you?
I took some Iocaine?  Sorry.  It's an old undercover ops trick.  Oooops!  Now you all know!  

17.) Describe, in detail, your first serious relationship. Describe how it ended.
ummm  it hasn't?

18.) Introduce your best friend. Tell the story of how you met.
Can this be an imaginary friend?  That would be Saint Joseph.  We met in Balboa Park.

19.) To the introduced friend, has our interviewee lied in any of these questions? Are you surprised by any of these answers?

20.) To finish up, what is your biggest irrational fear and how did you get it?
I Can't think of an irrational fear.  I'm not afraid of much and what I'm afraid of has happened, so is that a good answer?  I hope so because it's time to not say another word.  The EOWB may be listening.

  1. Your answer to #2 really made me think. It would seem that's not what we get from it any longer. When my daughter's first boyfriend ended things she went into a tail spin. She was 17 and ended up, at her own request, in therapy. I finally pulled her out of it because the therapist was encouraging her to wallow in it months later and when she broke our rules in a very major way and we grounded her, took away her phone, etc....the therapist wanted us to let it go because being grounded gave her too much time to think about things. (I did a lot of cussing at that session!) Anyway, when I was speaking to the school's counselor she told me I wouldn't believe the number of girls in the school who were in therapy because they couldn't handle a breakup. I don't know how or when it happened but the younger generation really doesn't know how to relate to or function with other people in a healthy way.

    1. Too many modern parents don't have the back up system of partnership when trying to raise children. I can't imagine how messed up a kid gets when they and their remaining parent are still suffering from spouse/Mom/Dad running away with a neighbor/coworker/old flame. These first steps into adulthood's quagmire of love, loss and isolation that come with it must be really devastating. Your daughter is a fine young woman, and you can rightly be happy and proud of her. She's come a long way, Baby. Hugs all around!

      The stiff upper lip sort of love sets the proper boundaries when dealing with antics after a break up.

    1. Heeheehee. Now I must watch that movie again while winding the MadTosh for the peace cowl.

  3. Replies
    1. Yes, :-( unforgettable, regrettably. I wanted to take it's soul home and mend it.

  4. "Iocane is odorless, flavorless and invisible when mixed in water." I feel like you've rewarded me for reading The Princess Bride so many times.

  5. heehee. I love that book and the movie. And the book you recommended was so much fun! Thanks Gal!

  6. I am glad you have no irrational fears. I am rapidly developing what I think are real fears about this country, though. Jeez.

  7. Those fears are not irrational. I share them.
    There is now a madman in office who is Bigoted, Narcissistic, Chauvinistic and vengeful. Once I read the interview with the well respected journalist who was shoved up against a wall, groped, and humiliated, that was something that should NEVER have been ignored by the women of this country. If they did, well, I can't imagine where they are coming from. This guy is no Christian, unless you are in the camp that is trying to FORCE Armageddon.
