Can we all just take a moment to acknowledge the perfection of me receiving a Use Your Words list, which includes the word coffee?! Yes, keep contemplating the perfection of it. I will be right back. I am going to fetch another cup of coffee. *coffee interlude* Okay, I am back. I was struggling to come up with a way to use my words, and I did write a poem, which I dislike, so I went back to the drawing board. One of my favorite posts from the past, was when my friend HUZ, asked me questions, based on the words I was assigned. So, I am revisiting that concept, with the help of my friend Y. Thank you, Y! xo
Q: Have you ever been questioned by a detective? Were handcuffs involved?
A: Actually, yes. I am grateful to say, each time the detectives were questioning me as a witness, not a suspect, so no handcuffs were involved.
Q: You just want me to let you discuss coffee for twenty minutes, I guess. Are you sure you didn't come up with the words? Okay, so you HAVE to give up coffee forever. What do you replace it with?
A: The blood of my enemies, starting with the idiot who took coffee away from me. No, seriously, there is no replacement for coffee. Plus, I am not entirely sure I could live without it. I guess I would just drink more tea?! I don't know. Let's move beyond this horrible hypothetical scenario.
Q: Are you certain you did not come up with these words yourself? What is the most interesting thing you have ever done in an alley?
A: Well, considering I live in an alley, you would think I would have an awesome list of answers. I really don't. I guess it would be the time I really hurt myself badly. I was probably eleven. This isn't actually the first time I lived in a house with alley access/entrance. I was a speed demon on my bike, when I was younger, and the alley was mostly dirt and gravel, and I turned into the alley way too quickly, and totally wrecked. I went head over heels several times, and even hit a dumpster super hard. It was terrible. I was bloody, bruised, and broken. My poor bike.
Q: Tell me a sordid tale.
A: You and I. Haha. Ummm... Sordid... One thing comes to mind, but I try to bring politics up as little as possible, especially in recent months. Though, if we are being honest, so many political tales can easily be considered sordid, and I am talking about the truthful ones. I am certain there are plenty of untrue sordid political tales. Okay, here you go... I know a guy who is cheating on his wife. He has been for years. I think he genuinely loves his wife, but I also think he loves this other woman also. Though, I could honestly think of a very good argument as to why he loves neither of them. It does weigh on me, but at the same time... It is genuinely none of my business.
Q: Are you comfortable behind the camera? In front of the camera?
A: Behind.... somewhat. Not completely. I have never taken photography classes, and truly know nothing about photography. However, I think I can take some good pictures with my phone camera and often think if I used a REAL camera, I would probably do decent. In front of.... Absolutely not. Not even slightly. However, I decided long ago to just deal with it. Pictures are like the evidence that we existed, and helpful for our loved ones' memories, so I suck it up and let pictures be taken of me. I don't like any pictures of me, but that is just the way it goes. I think many people, even some of the most beautiful people, do not like pictures of themselves.
Q: Would you ever play naked hopscotch?
A: I think an even better question would be, if I would ever play hopscotch. Probably not. Though, let's be honest, Gigi can get me to do nearly anything. So, if I am playing with children, no. Obviously. However, all adults or alone.... I guess it could happen... Never say never. However, it is truly not very likely at all.
Okay, so there you have it. A quick little Q & A with moi. My heartfelt thanks to Y for humoring me, and coming up with some interesting questions.
As for that poem I wrote?! Well...
I miss being the cream to your coffee.
I miss you being my personal hero.
With you by my side, I would walk down the darkest alley.
With you by my side, I would walk down the darkest alley.
I miss being with you.
I miss you being there for me always.
With you I felt complete.
I miss our sordid affair.
I miss adding chapters to our story.
With you I always thought there would be a happily ever after.
I miss crowding around the camera for our date ussies.
I miss going on new and exciting dates with you.
With you every date was special and fun.
I miss imagining our future together.
I miss dreaming about playing hopscotch with our children.
With you, I thought there would be lots of babies.
I miss feeling loved and secure.
I miss feeling ravished and satisfied.
With you I was blinded, far from a detective.
I didn't see it coming.
I didn't know it was going to end.
I miss you.
I miss us.
Without you I am empty.
As you can see, I definitely needed the backup plan.

I can't see what is supposed to be wrong with the poem, but now we got to read the Q&A AND the poem, so who am I to argue?ReplyDelete
I was so happy for you when I discovered you got COFFEE as one of your words!
Although I do like your poem and disagree that you needed a back-up, I love the Q & A, I learned some new things about you. Except for your love of coffee. Everyone knows that, duh.ReplyDelete
