I always thought cremation. My mother was cremated, she wanted to be placed under a birdbath in our backyard that she liked. But then we sold the house and 30 years later I drive by and no birdbath.  So, it bugs me. My father was also cremated, he was supposed to have a military ceremony. My sister and I spent 4 years on the phone with the military, they finally told us the warehouse with WW2 documents burned down in the 70s. So, his ashes are still in my apartment. Maybe I want to be put in the ground. But the preparation is wasteful and bad for the environment, so I think just deposit me. 

The old quote is we die twice, first when the last breath leaves our body, again when the last person says our name. 

Would you prefer to be remembered in a poem or name on a building.

Oh that’s kind of sad about your folks. 
Not sure why but the thought of being cremated creeps me out. So does being in a coffin. Not sure why cause I do believe dead is dead. And I agree the burial thing is wasteful. Now there are some new ways of composting a body. It’s kind of big in parts of California. I think since I’m a Veteran that I have the option of burial at sea. That’s the way I’d like to go out. It’s got a romantic flare to it in some odd way. 
 

Remembered in a poem. That’s nice. 
 

Wake or memorial some time later?

A memorial. Maybe an Irish wake. 

Owe money or owe a favor

Owe a favor. Though owing money is a cleaner payback as you just pay and you’re done. You never know when favor payback will ask to be redeemed and often it seems to foil plans,  it you can’t really say no. So I guess I should have picked owe money joy

Tell someone you don’t know well they have something stuck on their tooth, yes or no

Yes, I would politely tell them.  I have also told strangers when their barn door is open grin

Well, to our generation I think it seems to be more of a mixed bag. But overall, blessing I think. It does get folks in to the doctor more to tell us how wrong we are because Dr Google knows everything…joy Damn Dr Google. I bet he got off without student loans too joyjoyjoy

Google or other search engine

I like Google too. Back in 1999/2000 I was training on the Rez and worked with this Doc who urged me to buy Google stock. Of course I was a student and didn’t have money for any stock, but I sure wish I’d scraped together something and done it… but I can say I’ve had the same Gmail address since, so I guess that’s something, joy

I'd say I'd rather know. Might get depressing, but, if there's only a year to go, I don't want to spend it working. 

I don't think I'd want to know other people. Wouldn't want an expiration date on everyone. 

Since it is Fleet Week here, men (or women) in uniform or not.

I agree. I wouldn’t want to know about others, but I think I’d like to k ow when I’m checking out for good. 
Ohhh. Boy. Well, I’m attracted to men so man in uniform? Ohhh. Boy. No clue what it is about that but from women I’ve talked to over the years it’s quite common for that to be an attraction. I’ll have to start asking my straight guy friends and see if that’s the case for them with women. 
 

Date a police officer, yes or no
