The question this week is :
- What type of flooring does your personality most resemble? Which flooring would you prefer to resemble??
(You and I are sitting on my front porch swing drinking fresh squeezed lemonade from a frosted pink glasses.)
I know this is a crazy question, but to quote Ricky Ricardo, “You are a crazy redhead” and we will just leave off the Lucy part.
There are all kinds of flooring possibilities which I have actually explored with you quite a long time ago, however, I didn’t relate it to my personality.
(We wrap our glasses with a napkin to prevent the condensation from dripping on our hands. I pass you a piece of banana bread.)
One aspect of my personality is soft and compassionate which would lead me to think about thick, pile carpeting in a soft, pastel color or even white. I do love white in decorating. I’ve even been thinking about going all white with just soft accent colors.
(I just dropped part of my banana bread while I was trying to balance by glass since the we are still swinging.)
When I’m about to settle for thick, plush, carpeting as my answer to the Tell The Truth Thursday question, I’m reminded that I also like things clean, smooth, organized and simple. Large granite tiles are just like that, but they have a cold aspect to them and I do not.
(After handing you another slice of moist banana bread,I begin to eat the juicy strawberries that I piled high on the other half of our plates.)
My personality is as eclectic as my tastes. Although I’m a little bit soft, compassionate, simple, clean, and organized, there are other qualities that I think bear mentioning. I’m also warm and forgiving of misfortunes the way that a hardwood floor is after you drop something. It doesn’t always shatter because the floor is soft and if it leaves a dent, well, it can be sanded and fixed as good as new. Forgiven and forgotten.
(You’re making the swing go in circles now and I’m getting a little motion sick.)
I guess if I have to choose which flooring is the most like my personality, it would be…
Well, I can’t choose. I would say that I’m twenty-five percent carpet as long as the vacuum marks are all going the same way; twenty-five percent granite tile if it has a heater underneath to take off the cold bite; and fifty percent lightly colored hardwood floor with an impeccable shine.
I’m a simply complicated woman and not just any woman either. I’m a redheaded woman aging with style. How’s that for improving the attitude? I like my personality as is and am working on keeping that attitude.
Now I want to go put Pledge furniture polish on the hardwood floor and slide across it in our socks!
(You ate so much banana bread and strawberries that you were softly snoring in the swing for about twenty minutes. Now you get up to go home and we exchange hugs. “Thanks for stopping by,” I said. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”)
it is much easier to
other people’s shortcomings.”
