Dansig likes to "sleep dangerously":
|Sometimes he doesn't quite stay balanced and tumbles off when he turns over!|
Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by Ellen of 15AndMeowing, and the final two are offered by McGuffy Ann Morris of McGuffy's Reader. They try to make sure the statements will be fun to both answer and share. The linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM on Friday. Please head over to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!
My fill-ins for the statements are underlined:
Week 42: February 24, 2017
1. I wish _____________________________ would come back in style.
2. I always have _____________________ in my purse (or wallet for men).
3. I think that I ___________________.
4. ___________________ is a pet peeve of mine.
1. I wish common sense and behaving with respect would come back in style. Not being a fashion maven, there's no particular clothing trend from years past that i am crazy with longing to wear, but these two items making a comeback would transform our world!
2. I always have ID, proof of both health and auto insurance, debit card, and library card in my wallet. Other stuff i could live without, those are the essentials.
3. I think that i will never have enough time to read everything i want to get to read. In fact, it would take several lifetimes.
4. People wanting their half out of the middle is a pet peeve of mine.
