Just for fun, we’re launching a new and light-hearted game this week: ask the next poster a question.

It’s really simple: poster 1 (me!) asks a question and the next person to reply not only answers said question but asks another for whoever comes next.

Ready?

    First question:

    You have to wear a t-shirt with one word emblazoned across the front for a whole year. What word do you choose?

    Depends if I could wear a sweater over it when it wasn’t appropriate  🤣😂 I guess to keep in mind when the kids are about I’d go for something like: Sorry!

    Hello @Adrian_Scope In response your question.

    A My recipe folder and diary with out them be lost and how to do anything .  Cannot remember some days .  

    Every time my diary full of plans, structures to the week or even days.  With out my recipes and folder containing stocklists for food . Becomes a struggle and a lot of problems.

    As one is so organised live on his own not reliant on any one.

    Q  If you had a crisis had to create a coping box to get through the days.

    What would you put in it .? Things to help you remain calm and cope.

    Take care.

    I don’t really know a lot about art so would struggle to name anything beyond the Mona Lisa! I love looking at it but I struggle beyond that.
    Interesting question, it makes me wonder if you like art and what you would choose!

    Q. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life (and it’d give you all the right nutrients etc yada yada), what would you pick?

    … I cannot imagine life without Art and I've always been into it from a young age. I'm also an artist myself. I guess that most Art is a personal thing (like music is) but if I could pick one painting I'd chose 'The Ambassadors' by Holbein or perhaps 'Whistle-jacket' by Stubbs (you can see them both on Google)

    A: It would be easier for me to say what food I DON'T like, and eating the same food for the rest of my life would defeat the object! I do like Lobster though, and Christmas Pudding!

    Q: What question would you ask Cleopatra? 
     
  • Hart86Hart86 Member Posts: 394 Pioneering
    Just looked them up, of the two I think I prefer “The Ambassador”! What sort of art do you create yourself?

    Answer: Can I only ask one question?! I’d ask all sorts about the era, the Egyptians generally, her opinion on modern society. I just think she’d be really interesting to sit and have a conversation with! 

    Q. What was the last song you listened to?

    You can ask as many questions as you like! :-)

    I'm a glass working artist and have been a glass blower too, but I also used to paint & draw and even did a few Egyptian 'Books of The Dead' on real papyrus. 

    A: The last song that I listened to was 'Happiness' by Goldfrapp and also '50 Words for Snow' by Kate Bush

    Don't use aftershave, but Lynx Africa body spay for me, and it must be either Obsession for her or Musk by Coty (no longer available now, oh the memories :( )  for her.

    Blue Stratos was another and everybody used to go crazy at my school for BRUT... I only wear Noir by Lalique (I've expensive tastes) or plain and simple JOOP for everyday use. I agree about Lynx Africa though and any vintage COTY, Nina Rici, WORTH or D'ORSAY for women. I used to collect the empty bottles as they were designed by Lalique.

    The Taj Mahal is the best building I've ever seen/been to. It is so awesome that I went there every day for a week, as it changes colour during the day and early evening. No picture does it justice. It's incredible.  Cinderella's Castle is indeed a famous place and I've not been to USA at all.

    Hello @GettinOlde   Did not know you were a religious person.  Is that why all your socks are  holey.
    Not religious in the slightest, in fact, it might be said that I am wholly acceptable to the idea of evolutionism.

    I was waiting for someone to answer mine...

    Also, "Q: Have you ever met anyone infamous?"

    Edit: I suppose it's one of those questions not open to all, but it was a serious question that I will ask under a more appropriate topic - carry on matron :smiley:

    A:  If I had a time machine I would go back to the Victorian era so that I could be one of those posh ladies in the nice long frocks living in a big stately home.  

    Q:  If you could choose only one hobby to do for the rest of your life, what would that be?  :smile:

    Yes, it can be done. Mind you, I cheat by using Microwaveable Uncle Bens rice. The rest is easy if you want my recipe? I'm back on the cig's too...

    A: Shorts, no socks & sandals subject to the weather. 

    Q: If you had the power, what new law would you introduce?
  • debbiedo49debbiedo49 Member Posts: 2,906 Disability Gamechanger
    A. Everyone must have enough food in their home to feed themselves.  If you go short you can go to the council and get gift vouchers for food.
    Or
    A. Every local area should have a community list of skills on offer for free. In exchange the person would get to choose a free skill. Like, a decorater offers their skills for baby sitting.
    Q. Do you think older people living alone would like the chance to be someone's foster grand parent?

    You'll have to go to the gym and start working out. 🤣

    That Liquid Talc from Asda is great and so much easier than trying to puff powdered talc onto those 'awkward' places - just don't use it on broken/sore skin - ouchy. 😢

    Oh, just another, my 81yr old big sis's carers use newborn nappies on her legs and feet to absorb 'leakage' from diabetic related ulcers (post maggot treatment).

    I do exactly the opposite. The front of my home faces SSE and catches most of the sun until around 2 pm. I find keeping all doors and windows closed on the sunny side, and open on the more northerly side, keeps the place a lot cooler. The only thing, the front stonework acts like a storage heater making it feel uncomfortable at night.

    @[email protected] C'mon, you have to ask a question now. ;)

    Q- Where is your favorite place to visit? 
    Never have travelled far, but was once invited by a Canadian family for an all-expenses-paid visit to Toronto in 1999 just when they had one of their heaviest snowfalls  Going through the check-in at Pearson airport I was singled out for investigation because someone didn't like the tattoos on my arms. After being quizzed about my background and mentioning that I may look for job opportunities for the future ("we only have work for Canadians"), I ended up spending my first five days in the Mississauga Immigration Detention Centre, and because I had prescription meds (warfarin) on me, I was taken handcuffed with a police escort to a doctor's surgery for an INR test.
    I was eventually bailed to the tune of $10,000 into the care of my hosts on the surety I didn't leave the jurisdiction of Ontario. So, I couldn't travel with my hosts to Banff ski resort in Alberta for the week they had booked, and after my first two days with them, I had to book into a backpacker's hostel having to attend parole office each morning for the week. The last week with my hosts was absolutely brilliant until again, I was escorted handcuffed to my seat on the plane for the flight home.
