A guaranteed honest response

(I’ve started using the service Plinky to occasionally generate ideas for blog posts…. The question posed this time was, If you were guaranteed an honest response, what would you ask?)

Ever want to know what other people think of you?

I admit it — I do.

Of course, I’d like these honest responses to be tempered with a little bit of tact, but I’d like them honest nonetheless.

And I suppose I’m a little more discerning than just that: I actually don’t care one bit what a lot of people think of me. But there are a few people in my life that are enigmatic enough about their true feelings that I’d love to know what’s on their minds when they think about me and our relationship.

I mean, aren’t there days when the idea of being able to read minds is quite appealing? Really – rather than guessing if that other person has the hots for you, wouldn’t it be nice to just KNOW that they think you’re the one for them?

Seems to me that being able to ask the question and be assured that the answer you’re getting is authentic, would be a goldmine.

Of course, you still have to ask the question.

Which could be difficult.

But… worth it? Without a doubt.

Destination: Ten years from now

(I’ve started using the service Plinky to occasionally generate ideas for blog posts…. The question posed this time was, What will your life be like 10 years from now?)

It’s funny, because in some ways, 10 years seems as far away as it did when I was a teenager — the era of your life where time stands still and you can’t even fathom being in your twenties. I mean, that was OLD.

In other ways? 10 years is a blink of the eye. A snippet of time that will pass before I can even acknowledge it whooshing by.

In another 10 years, I’ll be the big 5-0. I think I still have the same hopes and dreams for the next 10 years that I did 10 years ago… to find that special someone, to figure out a way to be happy and satisfied with whatever the current moment holds, and even perhaps manage to become independently wealthy so I can give up the 9 to 5 routine.

There are a lot of ways that I’ve made progress on these goals in the past 10 years, so I’m optimistic that the next 10 will see more steps forward, moving towards some of the things that I long for in life. All while enjoying what I have and appreciating the journey to get there, knowing that the getting there is usually more meaningful than the arriving.

I’m taking my Zune with me

(I’ve started using the service Plinky to occasionally generate ideas for blog posts…. The question posed this time was, If you *could* take it with you, what would you take?)

If I could, I’d have an MP3 player embedded in my head…

Two Zune HDs

But seeing as how MP3 brain surgery isn’t covered by my insurance, my answer to what I would take with me (if you could take it with you) would be my Zune! Without a doubt.

Because everything is better with music… commuting, cleaning, running, sex (not that I’ve got the headphones in!), yardwork, dining and anything else you can think of. I’ve always liked the idea of having a soundtrack playing in the background of most of my activities.

Oh, and perhaps the plug-in charger to go with it. Unless, of course, electronics magically stay charged wherever it is that you go when you take it with you.

So, what would *you* take, if you could, indeed, take it with you?
