changing a tire



What is your favorite go to beverage? Water, coffee, tea, coke, soda (non-alcoholic)

I love coffee, so much that I have decaf to brew when I want to enjoy it late in the day. However, if I’m really thirsty, I require a cold drink. I have never liked water. Of course I’d drink water rather than die of dehydration, but if I have to drink water, I prefer bottled (or, at home, filtered) water that’s as cold as possible. My go-to beverage for thirst at home is Vitamin Water Zero, which I keep in the refrigerator almost all the time.

Can you change a car tire?

Theoretically, yes.

Practically, no.

I know the steps for changing a tire. I even know where all the stuff I’d need resides in the back of my car. However, I don’t have the strength to loosen the lug nuts after I get the car jacked up. In fact, I’m not sure I even have the strength to jack the car up in the first place. So, in practical terms, no, I could not accomplish the changing of a tire, although I could tell some stronger companion how to do it.

Isn’t that always the trouble with theoretical vs. practical considerations? Things that seem good in theory often don’t work out in practice.

Are you a listener or talker?

I’ve always been a pretty good listener. In fact, strange people seem to seek me out in places like airports to tell me their stories. Sometimes I don’t mind this, but as I get older I’m getting progressively less able to allow this to happen. All that listening now leaves me emotionally exhausted. I’ve taken to wearing headphones whenever I’m traveling. Even if I’m not listening to anything, I can pretend that I am.

Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?

Isn’t it funny how things that didn’t even exist a few years ago quickly become necessities? I would not want to give up either the internet or my cell phone, but if forced to choose I’d hand over the phone. I could exist without a phone in my pocket (if I had to), but I NEED the internet. How else would I find out everything I need to know?

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Life is good. All I want is more of the same.

I hope everyone has a great week.
