Who, What, Why, Where

Jameil's favorite thing to say to me is "what are you..." Fill in the blanks. What are you typing? What are you eating? What are you watching on tv? Where are you going? Whose blog are you reading? Why did you leave the lights on? Question after question. Half of the time I don't even answer. It's only if she asks more than once, does she really want an answer. I don't do well with being questioned. I've lived on my own for over a decade, and I'm used to doing things my way. If I want to leave the TV on all night, who cares? I pay the bill. If I drop crumbs on the couch, I'll clean it up eventually. If I choose to watch a stupid tv show, it's my own brain cells I'm killing. No big deal, right?  I can't necessarily do that when I'm at her place for a week. Well, at least not without being questioned...

Something inside me just cringes every time I get asked a question. I know it's a fact of life, but it's definitely something I have to work on. I think it's just because (CHEAP PSYCHOLOGY ALERT:) I've always been a middle child that no one paid attention to. Nobody was worrying about what I was doing. Or (INFLATED SELF WORTH ALERT) it could be that I've always been so independent that my opinion was always the only thing that mattered. I don't know the real answer but I do need to find a way to not let questions bother me, since Jameil and her questions aren't going anywhere.  Either that or I could turn it around and start asking her questions all the time.. Any (non-serious) question suggestions for me? LOL

P.S. - By the time most of you read this, it'll be my 35th birthday! 11/25/1974 - God's "You're Welcome" to the world. LOL!!!

What are you complaining about? Would you like me to apologize for caring? What do you want to do tonight? What about tomorrow? Wanna watch a movie? You have to turn the tv off when you're done.

I'm asking God about his "gift" right now...

ask her if she'll produce this doc you know will be a good idea!

Nope! When I read this you were still 34! LOL!

ROFLLMBBO@ Jameil's comment

Ask her what her least favorite food is? How long does it take for her to change a lightbulb? Does she know how to change a tire? How many different beers has she had? Can she walk on her hands? Why does she think the caged bird sings? Can she say the alphabet backwards? Why does she love clothes? Why does she love food? How come she writes with her left/right hand vs. her left/right hand? Does she think she'll win this blog every day thing?

The non serious questions can go on and on and on! LOL!

lol...i totally don't do well with multiple questions about small stuff like why I did something I probably shouldn't have done (like leaving the TV on all night or not picking the crumbs up right away)! lol That actually would cause me to do it more!

This posted earlier than your birthday so I'll wish you an early HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I felt like I was reading about myself! Lol! I don't like feeling interrogated so more than a couple questions are too many, no matter whose doing the asking. My mom used to ask to 4w's like Jameil and it drove me crazy.

I believe they ask because they care but that still doesn't make answering any easier. I'm a middle kid too so I will use that as my excuse. I'm a true work in progress!
