I probably should have come up with a much more traditional post and introduction to DogKnows. After all, this is supposed to be a very serious business, right? The fact is, I’ve never been, what the rest of my business instructors and trainers would call normal. To me, normal is a setting on the dryer, and it’s boring. So, instead I thought I would break the ice using one of my favorite questionnaires. If I were on “Inside the Actors Studio” these would be my responses to James Lipton’s 10-questions:
1. What is your favorite word?
I’ve always loved the word serenity. I love the way it tastes on my tongue as well as the meaning behind the word.
2. What is your least favorite word?
The R word. It is truly one of the most repugnant words.
3. What turns you on?
Multi-sensory experiences when I need to quiet my brain from overloading.
4. What turns you off?
Hoarding, bureaucracy, and stupidity
5. What sound do you love?
The sound of my husband’s chortle in my ear and the contented sighs of my dogs as they are settling in to sleep.
6. What sound do you hate?
The scream of wounded animal.
7. What is your favorite curse word?
“F-it.” I say it often, although I wish I didn’t.
8. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
Chef or an owner of a B&B; preferably both.
9. What profession would you not like to do?
Hands down Accountant or anything to do with Finance. I’ll also add lawyer, and politician as well.
10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
See, I told you were strong enough! All of your animals and people are here waiting for you, we set the table, and are waiting for you to be seated to tuck in. Oh, and you will never have to do the dishes again.
