Ask Me Anything and I'll Do My Very Best...

to answer.

Almost a year ago, I did a blog post on Being Black. It was great being able to answer any questions and as I said then, there are no stupid questions. I am now opening the blog up to questions...any of them...it can be if I have a cure for toenail fungus (which I don't unless you want to try maybe Listerine) or even doggie behavior issues, relationship questions or even the "what's it like to be Black" kind of questions.

On my next blog, I will answer all questions.

By the way, I survived Baby Boo but not before I was ready to dive under the shopping cart today as she pointed to a man's shopping cart and asked, "why he buying that for?" pointing to a toilet plunger. Then, she pointed to a lady and asked the same thing, "Is that soda? (Vodka) Then, "Why she buy that?" I replied, "Because she probably needs it."

She obviously has inherited her dad's tastebuds and prefers to eat her green beans with barbecue sauce to dip it in. she also like syrup on her salad.

All in all, I did notice a stray gray poking up and I did the unpardonable and pulled it. I'm willing to risk the two more growing in place of it.

Looking forward to your questions.......

You said "anything" - How/Where did you meet Boo?

hahaha cute! Out of the mouths of babes as they say! Thanks for stopping at my blog. My girls well... the one one the left is the oldest child, and the one on the right is the baby. They are exactly 11 yrs. apart (shy of 1 month). Can you believe it?

Mari said...

She is so funny! Glad you survived, with only one gray hair!
I'm not coming up with any questions. I think it's too early for my brain to be completely functioning, but if I come up with anything, I'll be back.

You're always teaching us something' you're wise beyond your years.

I proceeding with the assumption that you were a single mother for some years. If that's true, then I think the answer to my question might warrant a blog post of its own:

What are some of the best tips/advice/suggestions that you could offer single mothers today base on your experience?

I really want to ask you something which would be tough for you to answer but as soon as I thought of that my mind went blank and you are spared... I am not as bright as baby boo.. Sigh!

Amazing coincidence that you are offering answers to questions about what it's like being black because last night I dreamed I was black...I was getting ready for work, looked in the mirror and several thoughts went through my dreaming brain. First was that I really liked my new look, far more handsome and younger looknig. The second was that lots of people were going to be surprised when they saw me. But mostly it was kind of exciting. A little scary. I realized that in many ways the world was going to be new and different when I stepped outside. It was a great dream and I was very disappointed to wake up from it.

Oh you are one brave woman. My question is, What is the most difficult thing you face being a woman of color.

Baby Boo cracks me up! Little ones are so uninhibited and honest. Once when my son was small we passed a gentleman in Wall-mart and Chris loudly asked my why does that man stink. Here I am shhhhing him and the kid is only gettin' louder. Pushing my cart away as fast as I can, I'm tellin' the kid we don't say people stink when he does one of those 'attention Wall-mart shoppers'..."well he does stink!!!"

God bless and have a wonderful day!!!!

Yeap, tell us more about Boo!


We've brought Cantik up to our unit a few times but funny, after a few minutes, she'd meow loudly and scratch the door and would only calm down when we bring her back to the lobby. I don't think she wants to be adopted. She's enjoying all the cuddling and loving from the condo kids!!

Suz said...

I'll ask the question that I feel many are wanting to ask.. what's happening with the wedding plans that went on hold a few months ago?

Anita said...

How much do you weigh?
You said you'd answer anything! :)
JUST KIDDING!!!
Seriously, where is the post on being black?
I admire the fact that you are very open with subjects on race and religion. I don't know if I've read one on politics.
Those are the three subjects that have long had a reputation of NOT being discussed if you want to keep your friends.

A question...hmmm...What's one or two of your favorite books, and are you reading anything now? If so, what are you reading?

Menopausal New Mom said...

Okay, here's my question.

What has been the hardest part of being a sort of step mom to Baby Boo?

Elle Bee said...

What is your favorite thing to eat for dinner? :o) (I always have to talk about food).

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

What is the best trip you've ever been on and why?

Also, on a different note - I wanted to tell you that I have an idea to write a story and I want to include a black female character but I'm a little scared, nervous since I'm not a black woman. Do you have any advice for me in writing for a culture/different race? Could I write you on occasion to get your honest input? (after I do some homework/research that is).

Multiple personalities.. said...

Wow! Carte blanche on asking questions? Hmmm....ok, here's one:

If you could have anyone, either alive or passed on, over for coffee and good conversation, who would it be?

P.S.: I left a little something for you on my blog. :-)

I've read your posts and I love your strength, your courage, your honesty, and your generous spirit. What or who has been the biggest influence in your life and what has made you "stay the course" when times are hard?
