Poetry and personal blog – Spilling my guts to strangers

Some say I have a great imagination.

Some say I have delusions of grandeur.

In any event, I have always wondered what it would be like to be a guest on a talk show.

Suppose I were a guest on “Inside the Actor’s Studio?” At the end of each interview, host James Lipton asks guests to answer the same 10 questions.

If I were on the show, here’s how I would answer them:

What is your favorite word? Dawn
What is your least favorite word? Poignant (saying it leaves a bad taste in my mouth)
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Interaction with smart people
What turns you off? The smell of a discarded banana peel
What is your favorite curse word? Motherfucker
What sound or noise do you love? Violins
What sound or noise do you hate? Crying
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Diva soul singer
What profession would you not like to do? Accountant
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? You can go back. It’s not your time yet.

I know, crazy, right?

Welcome to 1 + 1 Wednesday!

Every week, I invite you to go to the comments section and share two words on any theme whatsoever.

Your two words can be simple, complex, or completely random. Say something important, or make no sense whatsoever. Feel free to comment as many times as you want with two-word combinations.

This is a free for all. Although you can follow suit from someone else’s words, if you  like, always feel free to go off on your own tangent!

No restriction on language except for this: No slurs against race/ethnicity or sexual orientation. Such comments will not be approved or will be deleted as soon as I’m able.

Want to get a feel of how this thing works? Click here to see last week’s 1 + 1 in action!
