- What’s my favorite smell?
Well, chocolate smells pretty great. It probably has something to do with the fact that it tastes so great! Also, this is gonna sound kinda weird, but I really like the smell of strawberry shampoo. It’s just so fruity and pleasant. That’s probably not related to its taste, though.
- What would I change my name to?
Change my name? But I like Sara… I was actually supposed to be named Heather, you know. But my parents ended up naming me after my Memaw and saving Heather for Heather. Not that that’s in any way related to the question. I guess I’d pick… Emily? Sure. That’s a nice name.
- What unnatural color would I dye my hair?
Just so we’re clear, I wouldn’t dye my hair an unnatural color. I probably wouldn’t even dye it a natural color, for that matter. But, for the sake of the question, I’ll say that I’d dye my hair purple. Cause purple’s a pretty cool color. Or maybe blue? Or sea green? I dunno, I’d have to see it (I tried editing a photo in Paint, but it didn’t really help…). I’m so indecisive…
- Hogwarts student or TARDIS?
This is a mean question. HOW am I supposed to pick between Harry Potter and The Doctor?! It’s just cruel…
OK, so my answer is conditional. If I get to travel with the tenth Doctor, then I pick the TARDIS. I’d be the first American companion, and it would be so cool! I could go to all the places I want to visit (sans passport) and soooo many more that I can’t even imagine. Plus I’d get to have fun adventures and save people and stuff. And it’d be completely safe- Doctor Who has a strict rule against plot twists that kill off companions :P. And I could pop back home anytime I wanted to! That’s only if I could pick David Tennant’s Doctor, though. It wouldn’t be as fun traveling with any of his other regenerations, they’re just… not the tenth Doctor... So, if I had to go with the current Doctor, I’d have to opt for Hogwarts instead. Cause Hogwarts would also be awesome- magic, castles, secret passages, and the Weasley twins would ensure that life was always interesting. And I’d get to be super lazy- just accio whatever I needed from my cozy chair in the Gryffindor common room!
- Which fictional reality would I choose to live in?
Well, I’ve already discussed the pros of Harry Potter and Doctor Who, so I think I’ll pick the Avatar world for this one (the cartoon- not the blue people). I could be a water bender, which would be pretty epic. Think about it- I’d never have to worry about carrying an umbrella again! Plus, you know, I could heal people and do fancy martial artsy stuff. But really- no more umbrellas! How great would that be?!
- What name do all of you look like?
So, since I already know all of you and your names, this is really hard. I have associated your names naturally with your faces for quite some time now, so I think you look like your names. So don’t blame me for these bad answers:
Amy- Snow Pea
Anna Beth- Abby
…yes, those were almost completely at random and without rationale.
- If you were in the middle of the ocean and the wheel fell off, how many waffles would it take to shingle a roof?
Unlimited TV episodes and movies for just $8 a month with Netflix! http://www.strategicmediainc.com/radio-advertising-blog/
… Sorry, that was the best I could come up with. I guess Question Tuesday and jokes don’t really mix. Hey! Maybe someone should have a Jokes Day! You know, someone who’s better at jokes than I am. That would be So Jokes! :D
-How rare is it for two people to like each other at the same time and actually do something about it?
First of all, I really like the “Oh great wise and wonderful Sara” bit- it’s a wonderful way to start a Question Tuesday question. In fact, can that be a rule, that you have to begin your questions with “Oh great wise and wonderful Sara”? :P
Anyways, on to the question at hand. Obviously, there are lots of couples in the world, but they’re kind of limited. I mean, unless you’re a polygamist (which seems to be falling out of popularity in modern society), one person can only be with one other person at a time. That’s one person out of about 7 billion of them on the earth. Clearly, nobody knows all 7 billion of these people, but I think it’s safe to say that everyone knows more people than the one person they are in a relationship with. This means that they have most likely had romantic feelings of some sort (anywhere from a “passing fancy” to a major crush) for people other than their current partners. Some of these feelings will, of course, have resulted in relationships, but think of the percentage of feelings that never amounted to anything. I feel like said percentage is pretty high. Sometimes nothing happens because the feelings are only one way, and sometimes nothing happens because neither feels confident enough to express these feelings and they both just get over it. Whatever the reason, though, I do feel like it is a pretty common occurrence for relationships not to happen, and a much rarer one for them actually to work out. A pastor of mine once said that people don’t like change, and they will avoid it until the pain of staying the same is worse than the pain of changing, and I think that applies pretty well to this subject. People will keep their feelings to themselves until they just can’t stand it anymore, and for some people, that is a pretty long time. Of course, this opinion is coming from an introvert who hasn’t had a boyfriend since middle school, so my perspective is pretty skewed. Still, though, I think that it is much more likely for feelings to remain unspoken or unreturned than it is for anything to happen. Which just makes it all the more special when it does. <3
