You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”
Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- How do you feel this morning?
I’m…OK. I have a ton of stuff to get done by the end of the day, so I’m a little overwhelmed right now, but other than that, I’m A-OK. How ’bout you?
- Have you ever ridden in a horse-drawn carriage?
I have not. I’ve pulled up beside one in a taxi, and I’ve walked up to one in Tahoe and pet it, but I’ve never actually ridden in one. I’d like to, but only if the horse enjoys its job, and it’s clear that the handler loves and cares about him/her.
- I love _____ dresses.
- Did you have a security blanket or a comforting toy growing up?
I did and I still do! I have a pink teddy bear named Ding-a-ling. That’s her name because she used to play Lullaby and Goodnight (until my mom put her in the washing machine…) when you turned a knob on her back, and when I first got her I’d sing along, “Ding-a-ling! Ding-a-ling!” because I was only a couple years old.
- Why is finding the right foundation so difficult?
For me, it’s color matching, and also because some foundations oxidize and darken on my skin, but I don’t usually find that out until I’ve been wearing them for a few hours (like, after I’ve already left the store).
Your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em!
1. How do you feel this morning?
2. Have you ever ridden in a horse-drawn carriage?
3. I love _____ dresses.
4. Did you have a security blanket or a comforting toy growing up?
5. Why is finding the right foundation so difficult?
I saw something yesterday posted on Instagram (I wish I could remember the account) that said, “Don’t look sideways,” which I thought was odd at first…but then I read the post, and it was basically about how this person played sports, and one of their coaches said that sometimes you can’t pay attention to what’s going on next to you. You just have to look forward and focus on your goal, because it’s easy to get caught up thinking about what so-and-so is up to, or other extraneous drama.
That’s some good advice right there.
Have a great week, my friend.
