  1. What item in your house recently ceased (or is likely soon to cease) Operation?
    The light switch that controls our garbage disposal stopped working correctly and we had to have it replaced. I could have probably done the job myself, but dealing with electricity scares me so I called an electrician.

  2. If someone were to poker ’round in your refrigerator, what item might he or she have questions about?
    “Why do you have 15 types of salsa/hot sauces?” Hey, we love all sorts of spicy things, like rayu, salsa, hot sauces, wasabi, and hot mustard.

  3. What’s in your backPac, Man?
    A lot of camping equipment such as cookset, first-aid kit, and headlamp. The sleeping bag and tent I keep in their own bags so they don’t get too compressed and can air out.

  4. When did you last run into an old Flame?
    I don’t run into old flames. After my wife and I got together 25 years ago, we moved to a new place, so there’s almost zero chance of running into an old flame.

  5. With what object are you frequently playing Hide-and-Seek?
    The center post to an old tripod has been hiding for years now. I remember removing it when I was helping Bay make a stop-motion video, but it’s a mystery where it went. Please come out, come out, wherever you are!

Today’s game-themed prompt is from via http://f.riday5.com/2021/02/05/friday-5-for-february-5-big-game/

Friday Five – 2019.08.09

  1. What beverage do you enjoy but seldom have? Root beer float – I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but root beer floats are yummy! I love when the ice cream gets that crispy crust.
  2. What’s better now than when you were a kid? Cameras – I definitely prefer digital over analog. The convenience and speed are nice!
  3. Who makes you happy? Bill Murray
  4. Where do you go when you want to indulge? Amazon.com
  5. Where’s a comfy place to sit? At the kotatsu (winter)

This prompt originated at friday 5. You are supposed to randomly use one letter for each question, but that was a little too difficult (I got “W”).

Passing in the hall
My “Hello” gets no response
How about next time?
