2) Flip Flops or Sandals?

When you want to be lazy... but not that lazy... sandals. Like, hey, I could in fact take off running, if I wanted to. I just don't want to. But if I have to, I'll be like fifth in line, after these people wearing sneaks.

9) Do you prefer to watch the summer or winter Olympics?

The Summer or Winter Sports That Don't Really Count

I don't watch either, much, any more. Beach volleyball? Pfff, better porn than that is, like, 2 clicks away.

Everything involving skis is like, oh, I can't tell the difference between any of them, except that some crash horribly. Except freestyle skiing, which I don't believe is an actual thing. They made that shit up out of thin air.

Do I really have to write all those questions? My finger is tired. Here goes.
1. Yes. I thought I would save money and buy clippers. My wife said she never cut hair before and she was right. The hair kept getting shorter trying to fix it. I finally said fuck it and shaved it. It was middle of summer and my cranium stayed white as a sheet. The hair grew and for a while I felt like Velcro on the back of my head. I had to pull my head loose from the couch.

3. John another was Kenneth.

2. Sandals.

4. Sight. I can't half hear now so I wouldn't be missing much.

5a/b is the same answer. I would say if I said it, but I can't say it so I will type chocolate ice cream.

6. My picture of course unless mebbe one of Jim who is way smarter than me.

7. Red.

8. Fore play. I always said without foreplay there is no play.

9. Winter.

10. On a boat that floats.

3) What was the most common first name among your peers at school?Jim
4) You get to save either your sight or your hearing. Which?I'm very visual. Sight. No contest.
5a) You have to cut a significant number of calories from your current diet. What goes?If it's a single item, I'd have to go with red wine.

1) Have you ever shaved your head? No.
2) Flip Flops or Sandals? Flip flops in the kitchen because they have more squishy support for my poor arches. Sandals outside the house.
3) What was the most common first name among your peers at school? My own, dammit.
4) You get to save either your sight or your hearing. Which? Sight, obviously. Anyone who says hearing is fetishizing their appreciation for music beyond all logical practicality.
5a) You have to cut a significant number of calories from your current diet. What goes? I'd start with ice cream and macarons, but after that I'd still probably have to cut my hummus intake in half before I got to "significant" totals.
5b) You have to add a significant number of calories to your current diet. First choice? Avocado and cheese. And probably more hummus.
6) A new banknote or coin is being issued in your country. Who should be pictured on it? Stephen Colbert.
7) What color goes best with yellow? I have two yellow items of clothing; one goes with pink, the other jeans. But this one time in 3rd grade, we had a school-wide assembly where I noticed nearly every teacher in the school was wearing a yellow top and a black bottom. Clearly it was some kind of coordinated joke, and I never found out what the whole thing was supposed to be about, but I remember thinking how bizarre it was that all of these women thought about their closets and agreed, "Yep, bright yellow top and a black bottom, that's a combination everyone will be able to pull off."
8) What is your favorite word with four syllables? Trisyllabic.
9) Do you prefer to watch the summer or winter Olympics? No live TV at the house, can't/won't watch either.
10) How should we? With quiet, smoldering tenacity.

I have never seen anyone do this, in person, or elsewhere.

I guess flipping the entire room off over your shoulder as you go would be totally uncool.
