The Answer Remains The Same

fire, brimstone, devil

It doesn’t seem to have started snowing yet…

I admit I had a bit of trouble with this one. Odd, considering I went to the Eagles’ Hell Freezes Over Tour in 1994. I could have told you about that, except that it isn’t a very interesting story. I went with my ex-husband, who wasn’t an ex yet. It was enjoyable. The End. See? Not much there. So I started thinking about things I would only do ‘when Hell freezes over’. And I realized that various people have asked me various questions at various times in my life where that should have been my ‘go to’ answer. Things like:

When are you going to…

  • Buy Kraft Dinner?
  • Have enough shoes?
  • Dye your hair blonde?
  • Obey the speed limit?
  • Do what I tell you?
  • Stop being like that?
  • Retire?
  • Admit you were wrong?
  • Follow the rules?
  • Play nice with others?
  • Tell me your secret?
  • Cut me some slack?
  • Do the crossword in pencil?
  • Slow down?
  • Put down the computer?
  • Use Kraft singles to make grilled cheese sandwiches?
  • Just walk past a crooked picture?
  • Forgive me?
  • Just try it? I swear you’ll like it.
  • Host another challenge?

Dammit. The answer actually changed for that last one.

  • Hey, I put up a list too. A different one though.

  • Cadeaux

    I won’t ask you anything today! I swear! 🙂

    “When are you going to stop having blogging challenges?”

    Yeah, that’s what I thought.

  • ReformingGeek

    Hee Hee. It must be list day. Great minds think alike. At least that was Evil Twin tells me.

  • Great list! I’m glad that visit my blogging friends in Virginia wasn’t on it!

  • Oh and you make some kinda high class grilled cheese sandwich?

  • If I didn’t know you any better, I’d say you have a “personal” thing against Kraft. I mean, what the hell ELSE do you use for grilled cheese sandwiches?

  • Actual cheese. 🙂

  • Hey, Kraft is a step up from Velveeta for grilled cheese!

  • That’s an impressive list! I’m not quite the cheese connoisseur you are. I still use Kraft cheese, but NOT the singles, for grilled cheese sandwiches. That said, I do like lots of different cheeses, especially a really super extra sharp Cheddar.

  • Darn it… Now I want to know your secret!!!

  • That is a great list. You would think that the people that know you, would know not to ask those questions.

  • Most excellent list, Nicky!!

  • I don’t get people who ask questions like that. If you already know the answer, you might as well not ask at all. Like, just the other day M asked me when I want to go visit his parents. I laughed. And then I laughed some more.

  • Actually I kind of remember a glowing e-mail thanking me for reminding you to host this challenge again. You even sent smiley faces and giggles. I remember it. There was nothing about hell. And definitely nothing about it freezing over…
