Getting to Know You!

The FABULOUS and gorgeous Edder over at I Don't Care for Your Tone posted a little feature on her blog that Miss Ginger really enjoyed, and she decided to do one as well. BTW- I really liked the way she put this one out there! No lists or emails compelling others to participate, just a little comment that basically said "I enjoyed doing this and you might, too!"
So, here goes:





I CAN'T...
...deal well with whiners- STFU and do something about it!
...bear looking at disfigured people. It breaks my heart and makes me squeamish.
...play a guitar. I have tried to learn and it just seemed all backwards!
...maintain an intimate relationship. I always sabotage them. There must be baggage there but I haven't found it yet.
...stand to hear the sound of my own voice!
BUT I CAN...
...cook, sew, craft, and build: all in 4 inch heels if I have to!
...listen to your concerns and offer an outside perspective.
...speak to a crowd, sing in front of others, and generally entertain the masses!
...be a responsible adult when that's what's required.
...rally the cause- either "for" or "against", depending on the situation!

I WON'T...
...help you if you won't help yourself.
...stand in a long line- very few things are as precious to me as time!
...let negative people bring me down. I have had to learn to push them back.
...wash my own car, cut my own grass, or clean my own house. I can do more important things with my time, and these activities provide livelihood to others!
BUT I WILL...
...go to the ends of the world to help you make a better life for yourself!
...always respect the memory of my ancestors.
...fulfill my commitments to the best of my ability.
...listen to your side of the story.

I SHOULDN'T...
...say "I'll just have one!" I never have just one of anything!
...be so quick to write people off as "not worth my time".
...talk so much.
...bite off more than I can chew.
AND I SHOULD...
...quit making excuses and get more exercize!
...organize my thoughts with the same focus that I use to organize "things".
...talk to my brothers and family more.
...overcome my impatience with politics and get more involved in how I can affect change.
...do something every single day that will make me a better person than I was yesterday!

Now. wasn't that "cleansing" to the soul! Try it yourself if you've a mind to! I look forward to getting to know you better!

I think I may give it a shot.

edder said...

I love it! Thanks, Miss G. Great list.

Joy said...

Love this list and love you! I totally identify with you on many of those! I can just see us together both wanting to talk at the same time and still hearing what the other one says!

I echo all of your "I Can't" list and most of your "Shoulds" and "Shouldn'ts"!

I'll post this next week.

Beth said...

I really enjoyed your answers! Although like Dannelle, I'm not sure I want to be that honest...! XO

Sam said...
