My Favorite Is...

I just received another “Getting to know your friends” lists yesterday. Some of them ask for information I don’t care to pass on, even to friends; this one was user-friendly.

1. What is your occupation? “Oh, golly, gee willikers,” as the former Donald Rumsfeld would say. I’m a broadcaster, newspaper columnist, very active in my church and semi-retired.

2. What color are the socks you are wearing? Mixed, as usual.

3. Can you drive a stick shift? Yes, and can double-clutch as well.

4. What is on the floor of your closet? You don’t want to know. I mean, if I don’t want to know, then you sure don’t.

5. Cherry or Blueberry? Pumpkin.

6. What are you afraid of? Going to Hell. More immediately, having a useless death as the result of a drive-by shooting.

7. Favorite smells? Mothballs, low tide in a swamp during July or August, flowers.

8. Favorite saying? (a) Don’t do anything that will scandalize the children or stampede the cattle. (b) There’s always one more imbecile than you expected. (c) Christ is coming; look busy. (d) One never knows, do one?

They sure beat the polls we receive by phone.

''Sir, this will take only three minutes of your time and will be very useful for this Polling house.

Now sir, what colour socks are you wearing at this moment?''

And invariably THE question pops up,

''How much did you earn last year?''

One of my favourites is:

''Your favourite flower? Cauliflower''.

''What is your favourite part of a date? The pit..
