TMIT: Let’s Get Serious

Let’s Get Serious

tmituesday serious


1. What are you most afraid of?
I am afraid of not being able to breathe. I have asthma, sometimes very bad, as well as severe allergies that have sent me to the hospital with anaphylaxis. Walking into a hospital and having them bring you on back without asking you any questions, that was when I knew things were seriously bad. I have an inhaler and an Allerject that are with me at all times. Well, except for that one time last month when I left my bag at the office and hadn’t yet replaced my spare. That was not a fun night.

2. Do you believe in life after death?
Do I believe when we die we magically end up in heaven or hell, or some other existence? Not really. I do believe that there is something to be learned from the human experience and our souls reincarnate until we learn whatever that is. I also believe that we live on through our children. Each generation carries pieces of the generations before it.

3. What is your purpose?
My purpose in life is to raise my son to be a decent human being. To provide for him, to love him, and to teach him.

4. Where are you going?
When I’m done this? Upstairs to bed. 😉

5. Do you fear hell? Why or why not?
Not at all, because I don’t believe the hell we are taught to fear really exists. Many of us live a hell on earth these days.

6. Do you feel free?
Nope. You have to know that I love my son and would do anything in the world for him, but since having him my whole existence has changed. He is a factor in everything I do, in every decision I make. I can’t even go to the bathroom without him following behind me!

Bonus: Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but people don’t point to their crotch when asking where is the bathroom?
I always thought pointing to your crotch was the universal signal for “Do you want to get with this?” Or maybe it’s “Beware, it’s that time of the month and this things a monster!” I don’t know. LOL…

  1. Number 4 reminds me of Saint Odhran. The saint once emerged from the church under which he had been buried and stated that, “There is no Hell as you suppose, nor Heaven that people talk about.”

  2. Really interesting questions. I don’t believe in life after death. I believe it’s like before birth. You simply don’t exist.

    Regarding pointing to one’s crotch–in all seriousness, I think the reason people don’t do it is because as children their parents reprimanded them for such behavior and told them it was rude.
