1) City or Country? (no 'burbs allowed) Country. The fewer ppl the better.

2) Salt or Pepper? It's going to be days, you can only take one.....Pepper, since I can't taste salt anymore.

3) Bloomberg or Buttiigieg? No thank you.

4) What most signifies that Spring is here? Outdoor fucking.<--Very catchy tune. NSFW lyrics.[/Capt. Obvious]

5) Favorite sport that does not involve a ball of any shape? Play? Watch? Outside of auto racing, I can't think of a sport that doesn't involve a ball. Full contact chess?

6) Red or Green? Red, he said in blue.

7) What is your favorite consonant? F.

8) Do you floss your teeth? Only with Red Vines.

9) Do you have a valid passport? Nope.

10) Rome or Athens? Athens. The best pizza I ever had was in Athens, Alabama. At a Godfather's.

1) City or Country? (no 'burbs allowed) City. Ironically, you get to enjoy the outdoors more in city life than in country life.
2) Salt or Pepper? It's going to be days, you can only take one..... Salt. I love salt. Picture unsalted peanuts vs. salted. No contest. Pepper is nice, but I wouldn't miss it like I would salt.
3) Bloomberg or Buttiigieg?Probably Bloomberg. He's boring, but gets things done. He knows how to run stuff, even if he doesn't know how to inspire people.
4) What most signifies that Spring is here? I'd love a vacation
5) Favorite sport that does not involve a ball of any shape? Play? Watch?watching the biathalon.
6) Red or Green?Green lights all the way.
7) What is your favorite consonant?D
8) Do you floss your teeth?Yes. But not as much as I should
9) Do you have a valid passport? Yes. And I also just got one of those super special driver's licenses with the star on it.
10) Rome or Athens?I had more fun in Athens, but the street signs were literally all Greek to me, and the roads never met at a 90 degree angle. Super confusing to navigate. Fun place though.

4) What most signifies that Spring is here?

Spring is here, spring is here
Life is skittles and life is beer
I think the loveliest time of the year
Is the spring, I do, don't you? Course you do!

But there's one thing that makes spring complete for me
And makes every Sunday a treat for me

All the world seems in tune on a spring afternoon
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park
Every Sunday you'll see my sweetheart and me
As we poison the pigeons in the park

When they see us coming
The birdies all try and hide
But they still go for peanuts
When coated with cyanide




5) Favorite sport that does not involve a ball of any shape? Play? Watch? Every men's sport involves a ball of some shape. I'll say women's hockey.

9) Do you have a valid passport?

Yes

10) Rome or Athens?

You pick. I knew there was a reason you asked #9!

Fun fact: Poisoning Pigeons in the Park was based on an actual thing the city of Boston was doing at the time to control the pigeon population. It was real!

Hunting, archery, skeet, ice hockey, dressage, dog agility training and sled racing, pimping... don't play but watch some of them occasionally.

Some dogs have balls. I'm just saying.

My all time fav agility dog:



I do like the border collies zig-zagging through the poles. And watching them shoot of the chute.

1) City or Country? (no 'burbs allowed)

Country, thank you very much. Cities frighten the life out of me.

2) Salt or Pepper? It's going to be days, you can only take one.....

Neither. I don't use either in cooking or on food.

3) Bloomberg or Buttiigieg?

Bloomberg. For no other reason than I can't pronounce the other chap's name.

4) What most signifies that Spring is here?

The clocks are put forward an hour.

5) Favorite sport that does not involve a ball of any shape? Play? Watch?

I'll get back to you..
.

6) Red or Green?

Port or starboard? Bit of a tricky one.

7) What is your favorite consonant?

Wobble U.

8) Do you floss your teeth?

No. I use those mini brushes.

9) Do you have a valid passport?

Yes, but the chances of using it for its intended purpose are about four fifths of the square root of damn all.

10) Rome or Athens?

Neither. I don't like cities. See (1) above.

5) Don't forget tossing the caber, and other Highland games they'd probably let poor Rudolph join. Though the hammer throw... that's kinda spherical.

Foil, saber, epee, broadsword w/ or w/o shield. Hell, call the latter WMA or HEMA.

Small bore, pistol, high-power rifle... race-gun matches -- all the bang-bang target stuff apart from skeet or trap or sporting clays, which arguably do include numerous balls so I guess we don't let them in.

Veronica, or Betty?
