Slice of Life Tuesday: Ask Me (almost) Anything

Lately, asking me how I am will reveal…
well, really any number of things,
depending on
time of day
what I ate for breakfast
how I’m feeling
whether or not there’s chocolate in the copy room stash
which way the wind is blowing
So I thought I’d give you a slightly more helpful guide

Ask me:
How I like the weather lately
How my hockey team is doing
What new writing tricks are up my sleeve
About my new weightlifting PRs
What I’m excited for
About my brown butter cookie recipe
How it feels to bike to work
What’s blooming in the neighborhood

Please don’t ask me:
What’s up with the ants in the kitchen
How my baseball team is doing
How my year-end projects are coming along
Why there are so many wasps on the deck
About my geriatric dog
How the de-cluttering is going
About that strange noise my car makes


Thank you for your cooperation. I am now open for questions. =))


Thanks, as always, to the Slice of Life community for the weekly challenge. Check them out!

  1. This made me think we should carry a laminated card around with us containing ask and don’t ask questions. We could then hand it to anyone we meet before they open their mouth to ask us anything.

  2. Your slice reminds me to focus on that we are grateful for and to save for tomorrow those things we don’t want to worry about now. So many lists but we get to CHOOSE. I agree with arjeha but I’d hang the laminated questions TO ASK around my neck!! Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is such a creative post! I might steal it from you! LOL. What IS blooming in your neighborhood, Lainie? Do you plant any flowers in your yard in the spring? (I hope the second one is an acceptable question!) Fun! We all need to focus on the positive! Thanks, good reminder!
