his game is a series of random questions to help us get to know each other, and have some fun.


To answer the question, follow these steps:

1.  Find the original window of the question you wish to answer.  In the far right, above the question, find a button that has a couple of quotation marks within it.  Click on that to create a quote.

2.  You should see the question quoted now in the quick reply window.  Press enter a couple of times to and then type in your answer.

If there were people around me, not long...haha.   It feels too awkward and uncomfortable to me.

I barely said a word today at work. Sometimes silence is great. Other times talking is appropriate.

One time my first sponsor told me to shut up for two weeks and just listen to everyone else. I'm thankful to him for it. Maybe I'll do it again some time soon.

I hate picking up the dog poop in the yard!  We have 3 large dogs and a fairly small yard and it gets out of control and turns into "dog poop yard" very quickly!

morning
I am a morning person now...it wasn't always that way. I used to think that I was a night owl, that somehow being nocturnal was my nature... not true - I guess I could go either way

I could go for a very long time not talking but I could not ingore someone else...I have experienced that and I would never ever do that even to my worst enemy

Grocery shopping....I have to eat but I can not stand the whole progression - buying, storing, preparing, serving, cleaning up, saving unused food.  All that is an occupation in is't self
