What was your favorite board game as a kid?
Ok, my childhood is really sounding like it sucked here. I didn’t play board games as a kid. I was an only child until I was almost 12, and my parents were not into playing with me. My great-grandmother, however, did teach me how to play Go, Fish. As an adult, I have been learning how to play board games. They are a good time.
If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew s/he was taken, what would you do?
Like a sexy person would pursue me. Besides my sweetie. He’s all I need.
Are you judgmental?
I’d like to say no, but I’m guessing I am. I like to think of it more as intolerance for people that can’t get their shit together and be responsible people. I respect others’ beliefs and values as long as they are thought out and not “just because”, but so many people do not operate like that, and cannot function in the real world. I have an issue with that.
