TMI Tuesday – Confessions (on Wednesday)

1. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, your future, what would you want to know?

Oh – I don’t think I want to know anything!  You know?  I kind of thought I did want to know some stuff, but when I started thinking about it?  Nah.  I’ll pass and just continue to be surprised and amazed by the things that life brings.

2. What do you value most in your sex life?

Sex life?  If i had one, i would – ok, never mind.  What i’ve valued most about my sex life, when i had one, was the sense of connection and belonging.  Particularly when it involved spanking and feeling dominated.

3. What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

I don’t know if “too serious” is the right term.  I don’t tolerate jokes that are racist or misogynistic or homophobic or any of those other kinds of categories.  I don’t think they’re funny and they offend me. 

4. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one in which you currently live, where would you move and why?

Nope.  I just moved to another state.  Not doing it again anytime soon.  Ok, ok, if I HAD TO?  Sigh…  Maybe Belize.
5. Are you too nice?

Um, no.  Sometimes people think i am, but they don’t know me very well.  i like to think i’m sometimes kind and generous and tolerant and some other things, but “nice?”  Not so much. Then i had to go look up the definition.  From Webster, for context:

The definition of nice is someone who is pleasant or agreeable or something that is in good condition and that is pleasing. An example of nice is a description for a person who is friendly and who everyone likes.

What is the difference between nice and kind?  It will be easier to understand the difference betweennice” and “kind” if we focus on the opposing motivations behind each way of being. The nice person is externally motivated. … The kind person is internally motivated. She has good self-esteem and isn’t looking for approval.

For me, nice always has the connotation of appearing nice rather than something genuine.  And maybe that’s not fair.

Bonus: Falling in love is _____ . (one word only)

exciting.

  1. I am with you on most of these. Nodding my head at not knowing the future, I just see that as less stressful, and none of the wonderful surprises life gives us, since we wold already know about them. hugs abby

    1. Thanks, Lindy! And one more vote against knowing the future – maybe no one wants to know the future. It’s interesting that we have such agreement on that. ❤

  2. I have trouble with both “nice” and “kind”. They’re each so slippery and bland… it’s hard to really get a hold of them and I’m not at all sure they convey the things we use them to express… rotten little words.
    (Reminds me of the friend who once assured me, “No, Jz, you ARE nice – very nice… but you’re not the kind of nice that most people mean when they use the word.”)
    We need better words!

    1. Better words would be good!! Yeah, kind too often has a connotation of condescending I think. And sweet! “You’re so sweet,” just makes me want to growl. No. No, I’m not sweet either. Lol, I would agree with your friend that you’re not the kind of nice most people mean when they use the word – that made me smile. But I wouldn’t call you “nice” anymore than I would say it about myself.
