Karen’s Questions and My Responses

  1. Which song always gets you on the dance floor? Carnivale will always get me on the dance floor. It is a salsa classic with a strong beat but not too fast. Strange that I like Latin music so much because I don’t speak Spanish.
  2. Have you ever disliked something and then changed your mind? Yes, a number of times involving everything from vegetables to people.
  3. Love or Money? What would you choose given the chance and why? There are issues with both choices. If only one choice is available I have to go with love.
  4. What’s the product that you can’t live without? Whatever product Honest Reviews is promoting.
  5. What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard? Shit happens. It does. Sometimes in unimaginable ways. Just take the current state of the world and the U.S. where I live.
  6. Who or what has had the biggest impact on your life? Having a child has had the biggest and longest-lasting impact.
  7. Do you believe in second chances? Definitely.
  8. Are you active on social media or do you prefer to be more private? I’m most active on Facebook. I plan to do more with Instagram and Twitter – pretty basic.
  9. Who would play you in a movie on your life? The actor who drew the short straw. 😄 Are emojis still popular?
  10. If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be? I would be more outgoing.
  11. What’s the app that you use the most? YahooMail. During normal times I use American Airlines and Delta apps most.
