The Friday Fix is a takeover of my Friday blog post by other bloggers who have volunteered their time and energy to "star" in their very own guest post on Friday. Only one mandatory rule (you can't get out of it!) - you must answer five of the most random questions I throw your way. The rest is up to you. Remember, if you'd like to be featured on the Friday Fix, send me an email, and let me know! So, without further ado, here are the Erika from Moonlight Book Reviews!
1. Why is an alarm clock going "off" if it's actually turning on?
An alarm clock is turning on because you had the good intentions to turn it off and get up, but you instead smacked it off the nightstand and it went off.
2. Why does one say they're "taking a dump" if they're actually leaving one?
I blushed so hard at this one!! You don't talk of defecation in public!! That is a European *pun intended* that was mistranslated into the English Language. In Europe they actually say, "I am going to leave a dump".
3. Why does mineral water that's been "trickling through mountains for centuries" go out of date next year?
It is not in the rocks life force anymore so it gets old.
4. Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but it's wrong to point to your crotch when asking for the restroom?
You don't have a toilet strapped to your crotch like a watch. Unless I am mistaken.
5. Do blind people see in their dreams?
Well I was not qualified to answer this so I turned to The American Association for the blind. i am going to cover all my bases here and answer for the two types of blindness. One, Who are blind by birth : These people do not see colors in their dream. Their dreams includes only noises & emotions. Two,Who became blind due to any happening in life: These people see colors in their dreams but the intensity of the colors is associated with the time when they last seen the colors in their original life before being blind.
Erika, you handled my decidedly indiscreet/vaguely humiliating questions with far more grace than I could ever have done, so kudos to you! To all of you, please check out Erika's awesome site, Moonlight Book Reviews for fab features, reviews interviews and more!
In other news, I have to extend a HUGE thank you to all of you for being loyal followers even during my absence while in Africa. Yes, I have more huge changes coming this fall (which I'll announce fairly soon), but I'll do my best to keep you all pumped for the amazing books out there today!
