Questions that Matter with Dove Winters

I asked the questions that matter of….well, I guess I can’t really ask myself the questions. That would make me sound insane. It’s bad enough I refer to “myself” as “us,” right? Let’s start over.

I read the questions that matter and answered some of them for you, in a bit of shameless self-promotion! But first, the book:

Now, some quirkiness.

Name the top five things you take with you during a zombie outbreak.

  1. My kids. I feel like they’ve battled enough zombies in video games to know what they’re doing.
  2. Water, cause all that running is going to make us thirsty.
  3. Someone who runs slower than me.
  4. A baseball bat. I don’t think my aim is good enough to bring a weapon that shoots.
  5. My favorite book. Something to do in between running and fighting, ya know?

It occurred to me that I can’t comment on my own answers, so let’s just continue: When was the last time you got the giggles at an inappropriate time?

We were about to order food at a fast food drive-thru one day recently and my son said something odd. Not funny, just odd. But for some reason, it cracked me up. I was trying to order like a professional adult, but I was trying to hold in a laugh, which is a lot like trying to hold in a sneeze: it’s hard to do and you look and sound ridiculous while you do it. I kept choking and having to clear my throat and start over. Now my kids do it every time.

If you were a road sign, what would you say?

It would be a round sign with a lot of squiggly lines going every which way. It would just confuse everyone. Welcome to my world!

Is the glass half-empty or half-full?

Either way, I’m going to spill it all over whatever I’m writing. So I have to hope it’s not too hot and I always keep towels handy. How’s that for deep thoughts?

What is your favorite nut? How does that nut reflect your personality?

Honey-roasted cashews. They’re a bit sweet, a bit salty, and the jar is usually full of broken bits and pieces.

Do you sing in the shower?

Of course I do! Doesn’t everyone? Disney tunes are a favorite. Sometimes my daughter will sing with me through the bathroom door.

And since it’s my favorite: What do you want written on your tombstone?

“Stop stepping on me!”

That’s it for me, folks! I had fun letting some of this quirky out with you all today!
