Anonymous said...

Hey, can you get someone to do MY laundry!?! Please!?! LOL! :)

BipolarLawyerCook said...

So glad you weren't hit!

Jen said...

Wow, Mariposa, I'm glad you and IT Guy were okay!

Goofball said...

Oh that must have been so scary. I was once driving in a big thunderstorm and lightning crashed in the grass next to me. It even flamed up for a few seconds.

Even though I have learned in physics that you are perfectly safe inside a car...yet I screamed out loud like hell when that happened!

Mariposa said...

Grey - it would have been a comfort to know, yet right now I'm in another please, lightning, don't come near me ever! Please!

Jvdhj(Julie)- Send them here! LOL

BPLC- I'm more than feel blessed!

Jen- That moment so many things came to my mind...I really thought that was it!

Goofball- IT Guy was explaining that to me...and he had explained that to me many times...every time we drive and there is thunderstorm, yet when you are there, freaking out seems to be the most convenient thing to do!

Kittie Kate said...

I'd be thankful to be alive too! That shit can kill your ass. :(

I'm glad you're alive!

It's a good thing that you weren't hit by lightning. When I first read the post, my fantasy-universe-addled-mind envisioned you gaining super powers from it and becoming a super [hero/villain].

If I could go on a dream vacation, it would be to Japan.
My 3 favourite things to do are: write, read, sit and talk with friends over drinks and (I had to add one. Sorry) play video games.
If I could change the world, I would start with making humans much more sensitive and constructive to the environment.

Hanna said...

Wow, perhaps there is a God out there. :) What a relief that you two are okay. Hugs

Interesting questions, and I love your answers. This is my favorite: 10. Are you hot?
I feel so cold right now...Does that answer that question?! LOL

Thanks Mariposa for cheering us all up. You do a great job!
