Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

A midweek game

Suppose you could give a questionnaire to potential lovahhhhhs. You could ask them anything you want--funny, serious, tough, easy--and you could score their answers. And if they got, say, 76.2 percent of the answers right, they would pass.

What would you ask?

Question 1: have you ever owned, currently own, or ever aspire to own an El Camino or El Ranchero?

If the answer was yes to any part of question 1, the person is then disqualified & it does not matter what questions come after that b/c they will not ever get the opportunity to proceed any further in the selection process.

My mother & I have discussed this for over 10 years now. We have determined that to be the perfect first question in the series.

...and clearly, we've given it thought & finalized the wording.

:)

Ha ha ha ... I LOVE THAT! I am totally laughing.

P.S. everyone: I'll explain the story behind the question later!

#1: how do you feel about your mother?

 
At 11:25 AM, Blogger Tanya said...

1. Do you have any "baby Mamas"?
--yes, means life will never be easy

2. Will you ever want to get married?
--no, means don't waste your time (if that is your eventual goal) he's got commitment issues

3. What is your career goal in life?
--this probably wouldn't be a make or break question, unless he wants to be a McD's fry boy

"How do you feel about your mother?"

(How funny--I typed this and then saw that Patti asked the same question! i suspect we share some similar dating experiences!)

If you could commit any one crime that you would be guaranteed to get away with, what would it be?

Are we talking lover, or significant other?

For lovahhh -- "what do you think about Sting and all that Tantric sex he's into?"

For SO -- I'd go with the mother question, then I'd watch him like a hawk for a while to see how he treats her too.

1) Do you have a psychotic ex-wife/girlfriend who will turn out to be a pain in my ass?

I was actually going to go with Patti and Trish's first question, but since they both said it, I had to come up with something new.

What did you do to contribute to the breakup of your last relationship?

I think this tells us key items about the guy. If he says he did nothing wrong and she is crazy, run like heck. If he thoughtfully responds with shortcomings, then you monitor him to see how far along he's come in straightening out those issues.

Question 1: Are you spry enough to handle a guy like me?

Question 2: If I were to give you measuring tape, what would you do with it?

Question 3: How do you roll?

Question 4: Do you like to play nurse to my patient?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. HA!

How comfortable are you with doing [this]?

Note that there could be more than one [this], and this (pun intended) could be a make or break question, no 76.2% stuff.

1. What is your favorite cereal with a chocolate vampire on it?

2. Can you only stand in front of me? Since I am a chick magnet, I will actually repell you if you go behind me.

3. Are hippos really that hungry-hungry?

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger Beth said...

1. Do you like to laugh?

2. have you ever laughed so hard you peed your pants?

3. do you like your mom? are you friends with her?

4. will you make me tea and taost when I get sick?

5. will you think I'm beautiful when I am old and gray?

6. and ya...any baby mamas?

I *think* one of the spry guys from manic & swishy's night out may be asking questions. LOL

hmmm I'd probably ask him about his relationship with his mother. Not necessarily if he likes her, but rather, do you spend a lot of time with her? are you close?

 
At 4:55 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Do you like to camp?

Seriously what is it with boys and nature? Who decided sleeping in the dirt and peeing in a bush was fun?

 
At 5:48 PM, Blogger Manic Mom said...

I'll have to get back to you on this one. FOr shiggity. Good one! Great one Swish!

Question 3: How do you roll?

Ha ha!

My question would be, "Saved by the Bell or Dawson's Creek: which high school experience was more plausible? You can use either series' college years as a reference.

"Also, which cast has had the most entertaining collection of post-series careers? Extra points if you can connect the two shows in less that six degrees."

No wonder I'm alone. :)

I agree with most others with the mother thing.... but I would add How do you treat your Sister.. And how would you react if some guy was an asshat to your sister?

 
At 10:32 PM, Blogger The Franchise said...

Do you have another internet blogger that you are cyber dating? I mean off the top of my head that's what I would ask...

 
At 10:48 PM, Blogger Melek said...

How good are you at doing the dishes and laundry? and will you do them without me having to ask? if so, you're hired...i mean, we can go out. yeah. or something.

 
At 10:50 PM, Blogger Moanna said...

Q1: Do you like your ex?
Q2: How'd you break up with her?
Q3: Can I drive?

 
At 11:07 PM, Blogger Manic Mom said...

Forget the "Do you like your mother" questions, I'd go with the "Do you still live with your mother?"

There's gotta be more, but I do like the tape measure one. That is definitely a spry rolly question non-married women would probably definitely want to know the answer to at four in the morning! ; )

Especially if it were being answered by LAW STUDENTS from NYC!

Double Wink!!

Do you, or have you in the past, used the terms: jugs, hooters or fun bags?

Then I would provide a clinical drawing of the female hoo-ha. If he could not correctly identify the critical areas he would also be deleted.

 
At 12:12 AM, Blogger Swishy said...

HA!

Oh my gosh, you guys are like the funniest/smartest people ever. These are SO fun to read!

 
At 8:24 AM, Blogger Sherry said...

Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64?

 
At 12:27 PM, Blogger Manic Mom said...

Have you ever 'teabagged' anyone?

 
At 12:33 PM, Blogger Rob said...

Well, I can tell by these questions that A) You gals are all hanging out with PROFOUND liars or B) You just aint just getting any.

'cause no man I have ever met could *honestly* answer most of these questions to your satisfaction! :)

Then you wonder why we lie. tsk-tsk-tsk. :)

At 2 am I thought of some more questions...

1. Do you snore

2. Toilet seat up or down ?

3. Do you cook breakfast....



ps manic what is teabag?

 
At 5:17 PM, Blogger Swishy said...

Rose, I don't think you want to know :)

And Rob! That is not true!

 
At 10:05 PM, Blogger kim said...

Swishy, I just heard about your boy Keifer -- I'm so sorry.

Conjugal visit?

 
At 10:15 PM, Blogger Swishy said...

OK, I seriously--I SWEAR!--just said to my friend: "Well, he DOES get two 15-minute visits a day ..." Ha ha. And his birthday is coming up, too!

 
At 10:17 PM, Blogger Moanna said...

Oh my, sorry for the second comment but Eileen is so right, as in, "can you find it?"

 
At 12:27 PM, Blogger Angela WD said...

Hmm, reading through these comments, my guess is that your friend Rob just disqualified himself.

See? Isn't that easy?
