Change of Pace

All is still going well and it's time for a change of subject for a little bit.

Here, from Peppy Lady, is a meme. I'm not too sure about the results; some of the questions could have been answered another way I'm sure.

She published all the verses of Robert Service's "The Cremation of Sam McGee" as well. My sons' dad was a huge Service fan (he liked Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour as well) and he could recite Sam McGee all the way through. It took me back seeing those lines.



You Are 2: The Helper

You always put on a happy face and try to help those around you.
You're incredibly empathetic and care about everyone you know.

Able to see the good in others, you're thoughtful, warm, and sincere.
You connect with people who are charming and charismatic.

At Your Best: You are deeply giving, altruistic, and humble. You devote your life to others while caring for yourself too.

At Your Worst: You are manipulative and enjoy making other people guilty.

Your Fixation: Rejection

Your Primary Fear: Being unworthy of love

Your Primary Desire: To be loved unconditionally

Other Number 2's: Mother Teresa, John Travolta, Princess Diana, Dr. Phil, and Mr. Rogers.

When I taught 8th grade English, "The Cremation of Sam McGee" was part of the curriculum. I loved it.

I'm a number 1 which I find to be entirely accurate. Kind of nice and scary at the same time!
