GHOST BUSTERS

Question Of The Week, 4-25-16

"Who you gonna call?"


Who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?

I immediately thought of my sister but then realized that wasn't correct.  It all depends on the cause of the bad day and who will  understand most.  Could be my friend, my sister, my children....OR SLIM!!

Your Answers:-)  Thanks for the comments.

I don't call anyone, I tend to wait until someone arrives home and off load all my crap on them. It could be anyone. :D I try not to do it to my partner though.

I really hate the phone so I would be unlikely to call anyone unless I needed specific help. I would put on some soothing music and do some restorative yoga poses or I would meditate. That's a very interesting question.

If I am in trouble I would call my husband for sure.

I call my sister (the younger one) who I am a little closer to, in general. I was having a really bad work day last week and sent a text to her, saying I needed grandchildren pics. And of course, there were some. It definitely helped. And she followed up later to see if I was OK.

There was an incident, about 10 years ago - that something very upsetting happened to me and I was driving home and meant to call the younger sister, but called the older one instead. When I started talking to her, I burst into tears (unusual for me) and she cried with me. So I should not sell her short - she is there for me, too - I just have to ask.

I am not one to share my troubles. I like to keep everything perfect and would only talk to someone if it was really, really serious. I honestly do not know if I could share a diagnosis of cancer until some time had passed. Not my Blogmates are different. I dump on them all the time.

Yes, it depends on how bad the day is, but I am more prone to keeping my cards close to my vest.

I really don't unload much, mainly because I have a high boiling point. I tend to find if I listen to someone else gripe, it really releases any pressure I am feeling. I am a vicarious griper.

Strange as it might seem to some... if I do feel the need to talk with someone, I call my ex.

I don't use the phone much to convey sadness or problems. However, my best friend, Mary, would definitely hear about my heartache someway, somehow, somedayBloggerBlogger

I hate the phone. I use it only for business so no one.

Usually it's text. My Ron ;)

I'm a willing listener for my friends.
But, I don't call it in to them, because I always think I should be able to handle stuff.

When I've had a bad day, I don't want to call anyone, and no one had better call me either! #introvert

I answered this on facebook as work in a library again - like the very first job I ever had, but I like your road trip idea. Hmmm - that sounds nice.

I always worry about you and Mama Zen with the tornadoes I see on the news!

Write for a living. I've been a writer since before I was 11, but didn't know it until I was older.

Actually, since retirement, that's kind of my life. I do like to spontaneously go on a short trip. We might just leave on Thursday after Bob's eye is checked and find ourselves some spring weather!

Or pottery. ;-)

You just reminded me that I am not nearly as spontaneous as I use to be. I use to love taking
right-turn only day trips when I first got here. I would just drive all day with Mighty Dog exploring country roads while snacking on a cooler. I also called it a tank-of-gas day. I would only make right hand turns which eventually brought me home. Longer road trips were also fun but I needed a cat sitter for that. Think I need to shake loose the doldrums. Thanks.

It was just too complicated a question to answer. Sometimes I would like to just pick up my purse and walk away, never to return. I've never yet, but as I enter my red-hat lady years, I can see it happening.

Go horseback riding! I should've been a horse farmer, I'd be so much happier-

Was going to say that I would be eating heavily buttered popcorn and watching a stupid movie with my daughter, but then I saw Snaggle Tooth's response and realized I would love to go for a long fabulous horseback ride along the beach.

However, I would still want heavily buttered popcorn afterwards.

Love reading everyone's answers. I have a printing client, who works at a very ritzy hotel in St. Thomas - she's lived there for 30 years. She's originally from Snaggle's neck of the woods and when she got divorced, decided she needed a change. So she looked up a place where it is warm and beautiful all the time - she's been in St. Thomas ever since. How I admire that - just picking up and moving someplace else.

A little late to the game as I was compouterless for most of last week. I would love to simply write and yes, go back and work in the library. Absolutely loved the job.

It's almost warm enough for a long walk in my favourite park, Toronto Island. That's what I'd like to do: see the lake, the trees, the animals (local wildlife and farm-zoo), and the happy, excited children. 

Louvregirl said...
I would paint. And ride a horse. Sit in the sun. Hug my kids. Have a dinner date or some kind of a date with my hubby...and then begin it all over again! ;-)
