Here are the Manic Monday questions for today. They’ll take a little thinking on my part.
Which personality trait has gotten you into the most trouble?
I would probably have to say my inability to say no or to confront someone in a situation that needs confronting. I really don’t think I could choose between those two.
Most recently I wrote about getting my hair colored. I asked for blonde and even chose a swatch from her color swatches. I ended up with orange hair. Everyone asked me if I told her I wasn’t happy before I left. Of course I didn’t. So, now I’m stuck with orange hair. I will attempt to fix it myself. Now that situation definitely called for me speaking up for my right to get what I wanted, asked for and PAID for. But I just said thank you and left.
If you had to gain 10 pounds what would you eat to gain the weight?
If I gained another 10 pounds added on to the 35 pounds I have gained over the last 18 months I would lock myself in my closet and starve myself to death. But if I didn’t mind gaining another 10 pounds I would do it by eating candy.
How is your private self different from your public self?
My private self allows me to give into how I am feeling physically. My public self makes me hide it and reply "fine" if someone asks how I am doing.
