Fill in the blank/not a test

Don’t you just hate those tests you have to take when applying for a job? You try to figure out what the employer wants you to say because you need the job. You get the job and it’s a damn bad fit. Whatever!  I do like fill-in-the-blank lists when I’m the boss and the employee. I get to make up the questions and the correct answers. So easily amused ….

  • My favorite time of day is ……… before sunrise.
  • Leftovers are ….. gross, but a non-negotiable necessity in this economy.
  • I know people who are …….wonderful.
  • I know other people who are ….. completely repulsive.
  • My favorite sandwich is ….. turkey and provolone on foccacia bread with pesto.
  • People say I …. take things too personally. That would be correct.
  • Each morning as I take my shower, I thank God for …..water.
  • I am …. superstitious. Wrote a 13-page article on superstitions once.  13? Yikes!
  • Personality traits I cannot stand …. three-way tie: liars, the perpetually passive-aggressive, and terminal takers who suck the life right out of you. Shoo!
  • When I’m upset, I can’t ……eat.
  • When I’m happy, I ….. roll with it.
  • If I could be any movie star I would be ….. Diane Lane.
  • I refuse to read …… bodice rippers.
  • I always try to ……listen. May not like what I’m hearing, but I’m listening.
  • Cocktail of choice is ….. gin and tonic, two limes, please.
  • I wish I didn’t look like a ……Q-Tip.
  • I think it is fun to …..belly dance.
  • When someone pushes me too far, I …..shut down. That  person ceases to exist. Don’t suggest therapy – been there, done that, wrote the check. Fortunately, I only shut down now when a scary,wicked, going-straight-to-hell-for-sure person attempts to work me.
  • I’m really bad about …..ignoring giant red flags.
  • My least favorite word is ……deserve. It screams “entitlement” to me.
  • I’ve made really good choices when it comes to …. friends.
  • I have not made very good choices when it comes to ……men. Chose fixer-uppers that were, unfortunately, irretrievably broken. And who did I think I was, anyway? God? So not. Am happy to say I’ve also enjoyed the company of some really great, healthy men. Maybe every woman has this ratio? No clue.
  • It makes me happy to hear …… good news about anything and anyone.
  • I believe that prayer is ….. powerful.
  • The most important word in my world is …
  • If I were a better person, I would always be ….gentle, kind, open, loving, non-judgemental.
  • I hope I never lose my ….. enthusiasm.
  • If I were a cake, I would be ….. vanilla with creamy vanilla icing.
  • The nicest celebrity I’ve met to date is ….. Sam Waterston. I love that man.

Okay, am totally sick of myself. Anyone reading this is probably standing over the toilet by now.

  1. Scary, wicked, going straight to hell person…good grief sounds intolerable. I am NOT standing over the toilet and you are NOT a Q-Tip.

  2. I loved this. Hope you don’t mind me filling in my own blanks.
