Sunday Stealing, The Cool Guy Questions

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. 

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 think I was about 5 years old.  I heard some young guys yelling something on the street when my grandmother and I were in town.  I didn't say anything then, but later at home asked her what it meant.  She slapped me so hard she knocked out my loose tooth!  I remember all that, but not what word it was.

2.) Have you ever had unrequited feelings for someone?/Have you ever been friendzoned?
I think everyone has had a crush on someone at one time or another and not had the feelings returned.  I had a huge crush on a guy all the way through jr. high and high school.  I thought he hung the moon.  These days I am able to look at him and where he is and be thankful he never returned my feelings.
I don't know if I've been friendzoned.  What is that?

3.) What's a false assumption a lot of people have about you?
A lot of people assume I'm stuck up because I don't do a lot of talking in group situations.  I'm not, I'm just a bit shy and definitely introverted unless I know people quite well and feel comfortable with them.

4.) Have you ever questioned your sexuality?

5.) If you could bring one person back from the dead, who would it be and why?
I'd bring back my Nana, but only if I could bring her back at a younger age, before her mind left her.  She was my best friend and greatest champion and she taught me so much.  I miss her every day.

6.) What did you do on December 12th last year?
That would be this past December 12th, right?  I sat around the hospital ALL day waiting for my grandson to be born...and then he waited until the next day.

7.) When was the last time you truthfully told someone you hated them?
I honestly can't remember.  I try to find something good in everyone and I try to forgive everyone for my own peace of mind.  Hate/unforgiveness will eat you alive and turn you into a bitter person.

8.) What is your opinion on this song? What about this song?
Well, the powers that be over at You Tube tell me the first song has been removed due to something about third-party sharing and the second one....eh.  It doesn't really do anything for me one way or another.

9.) In less than four sentences, describe the entire plot of the last book you read.

Girl catches fiancee with maid of honor the night before the wedding and throws a major hissy fit, calling off the wedding. Girl decorates Southern plantation house for new guy in town.  Girl ends up involved with new guy.

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?
I think I can guess who most of you are going to answer this question with.  I have a different answer that probably won't win me any popularity contests, but I just can't buy a single thing that comes out of that mouth.  

It isn't really her appearance that says that, but her behavior.  I don't like to judge by looks.

11.) What is the most cringe-worthy thing you've ever seen?
I don't even know where to start.  With the news feeling the need to show us everything and my husband's love of true crime shows....

12.) What is your biggest regret?
Keeping my daughter in public school.  She really didn't get anything good from it.  Even though she would have fought me all the way, home schooling would have been a better thing for her.

13.) Do you have any cousins? When was the last time you saw them?
If we are talking first cousins, I don't have any on my mom's side of the family and only 2 on my dad's side...and of those 2, one had pretty much cut himself off from family years ago and hasn't come around at all since his mother died and his brother is toxic, encouraging a divide between my son and the rest of us.  I have nothing to do with him.  I'm not angry any more, but I choose not to expose myself to his hate and ridicule for not thinking the same way he does.

14.) Describe the worst birthday you've ever had.
The one my husband forgot.  It was a total non-event.  He hasn't forgotten since.  Smart man.

15.) When was the last time someone provoked you to the point of violence?
I don't think I've ever been provoked to violence.

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?
How much do you weigh/what size do you wear?

17.) Describe, in detail, your first serious relationship. Describe how it ended.
He was artsy and kind of had that whole 80's New Wave look going on and I was a little in awe of that, I think, but we got along well. It was our freshman year of college so more than anything our relationship was about partying on the weekends and activities through his fraternty, but we talked about stuff, too.  It ended when he went to a fortune teller (yeah, he believed in them) and she said we weren't a good match.
That's us during happy times.

18.) Introduce your best friend. Tell the story of how you met.
She's older than me and the most upbeat, crazy person I know.  She has limitless energy and is a rock for everyone around her.  I met her through my sister-in-law originally and now aside from being my friend, she is also my Bible teacher.

19.) To the introduced friend, has our interviewee lied in any of these questions? Are you surprised by any of these answers?
She's not here so I don't know how she's supposed to answer this, but I don't think she'd be surprised.  I am pretty much an open book with her.  She knows stuff I've never told anyone else.

20.) To finish up, what is your biggest irrational fear and how did you get it?
Sharks!  I begged naaaaaaagged my mom to take me to see Jaws when it came out.  I think I was 12.  I spent most of the movie with my eyes covered (it didn't take long to figure out that when you heard that music something awful was going to happen) and for months I was afraid to let any part of my body hang over the edge of the bed for fear a shark would bite it off!  To this day I am not fond of swimming in any water I can't see what's out there and that includes swimming pools at night unless they are lit.  I love the beach and the ocean, but I do not go in the water deeper than my ankles and even that still causes anxiety.  In my defense, all the stories about shark attacks these days make my fear seem a little less irrational.


  1. I'm pretty sure that most husbands have forgotten a birthday at some time. That's why we are around- to keep them on their toes :)

    1. Yep. Aren't they lucky to have us?!

  2. Hi Stacy!
    I, too, am basically shy/introverted but sometimes mistaken for being 'stuck-up.' (Hurts, doesn't it?)
    December 12 is my son's birthday; no mistaking that!

    LOVE your reply to #10. (You knew I was going to say that, didn't you? LOL.)

    I'm taking a pass on this week's Sunday Stealing ... not feeling the questions. Have a great day!

    1. Yes, I did know...there are a couple of us. LOL

      My grandson ended up having the 13th for his birthday...and only because they finally called it and did a c-section!

  3. Stacy, I don't agree with, but respect your feelings for Hillary Clinton. We all have our opinions and I think those should be respected, but I'd like to hear this from you. Now that your candidate is the president of the United States, are you happy with the job he is doing?

    1. Thank you for the respect. That's how I feel. I have lots of friends who don't have the same views I do. We are all much more than our political bent.

      As for am I happy with Trump...he has kept an awful lot of his campaign promises in a very short amount of time. I find that refreshing from any candidate. Usually, when a politician is elected it seems all the promises they made go right out the window. As for what those actions accomplish, I guess we will see. I am not prejudice against any one people as a whole, but I don't think it's a bad thing to put a hold on immigration from certain countries for now. It's only 90 days and it's to give them a chance to figure out a better vetting process because the bad guys are obviously getting in.

  4. I think I read that book! Was it: Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger?

    1. Love that title, but no, it was Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews.

  5. Since you don't trust Hillary- no surprise there....*Rolls up the videotape of Trump mocking the reporter who has Parkinson's*
    Stacy, I respect people's opinions up to a point. What is that pseudo saying attributed to Voltaire? " I may not agree with what you are saying, but I would die for your right to express it."
    My husband, who is able to read everything about Trump, Told me that plenty of people are regretting their votes. Let's respectfully agree to disagree on this.
    Trump is a Rascist, narcissistic misogynist, one who will ruin the world if other folks don't figure out how to save themselves from his actions.

    1. That is how I feel, Zippi...we all have the right to our opinions and I would defend anyone's right to that. Maybe vote regret is a West coast thing? I haven't heard so much as a hint of it here.

  6. Stacy, I know we don't agree politically, but the world is made up of different opinions & beliefs :) And that's an adorable picture of you!

    1. Exactly! And wouldn't the world be a boring place if we all thought exactly alike?

      And thank you!

  7. #20 -- Shortly after Jaws came out, I went to Hawaii for the first time. I dove off the side of a boat into the ocean because I always wanted to dive off the side of a boat into the ocean. A school of dolphins appeared and I was SOOOOO SCARED! I felt like one of those Warner Brothers cartoons where Bugs Bunny's heart beats out of his chest.

    1. Did you run on top of the water to get back in the boat, to?? LOL

      I'd probably pee myself in the same situation.

  8. A fortune teller broke you up? That's a unique way to break up with somebody. And I think our answer to #3 was almost word-for-word.

  9. I came here from Terri's post and have thoroughly enjoyed reading your answers. I'm totally with you 'the mouth.'
