Fandango’s Provocative Question #172 – Phobia

Oooh, phobias are the topic of Fandango’s Provocative Question for this week. Do I have phobias? Well, is there a word limit to this post? Just kidding. Here is the official question and my answer. Do you have any phobias? If so, have you had these phobias all your life or have the developed orContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #172 – Phobia”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #163

Fandango’s can certainly make a person think with his Provocative Question and this week is no different. Do you believe that atheism is a set of religious beliefs or is a religion in any sense? If so, why? If not, why not? Or, do you have no opinion on the matter or just don’t careContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #163”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #162

It is time for another Provocative Question hosted by Fandango. This week’s question sends an instant shiver of guilt through me for my answer, but here goes. Warning however…this may be a trigger for some who have dealt with mental, physical, emotional abuse. If you could have a second chance at just one event inContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #162”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #161

So for this week’s Provocative Questions, we are asked how we feel about DST. Personally, when I first moved to Arizona, I found it odd that we did NOT change the clocks, but surprisingly I adjusted to Standard Time very quickly and moving home to PA and having to change the clocks again screws withContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #161”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #160

This week, Fandango asks us to answer a very hard question with his Provocative Question. Do you think, given everything that is going on in the world, that children born these days will have a worse or better life than their parents? Why do you feel that way? I have mentioned before I have anContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #160”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #159

So this week’s Provocative Question hosted by Fandango asks us to put value on three things, as follows: If there are only three things in life that truly matter, what do you think they are and why did you choose those three? First, faith. For me, in my opinion, I have faith in one andContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #159”

Fandango’s Provocative Question – #158

For this week, Fandango’s Provocative Question focuses on thinking. The question is: When and where do you do your best thinking? Why is that? I believe I do my best thinking when I am driving. Specifically, driving in the morning. As for the why, my theory is that a large portion of my brain isContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question – #158”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #157

This morning I read Fandango’s Provocative Question and burst into sad, hysterical (maniacal?) laughter. Not at the question itself, but in the certainty of my answer, which is the crux of my mental issues. I was just having this very discussion with my oldest daughter yesterday afternoon. Looking at your own situation, how much ofContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #157”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #156

Oooh, this week Fandango is going to strike a nerve with me with the topic of banned books. Here is how the question is asked: How do you feel about state and local school boards and other jurisdictions banning of classic books such as those I’ve listed? Before I start my response, here are theContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #156”

Fandango’s Provocative Question #155

This week we have a Provocative Question asking us to look forward, a question we got asked a lot during interviews and during college scheduling meetings. Where do you see yourself five years from now? I have no idea. So many factors come into play here and ignoring the obvious that it is not inContinue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question #155”
