How would you describe your home?

Suze and l would descibe our ‘home’ differently l feel. For starters because it is a rental, it is NOT our home per se  and that is how Suze would view it. For me, it’s where l live it may not be ‘my home’, but techinically if l wore a hat this is where l would hang it – not a homely hat, but a hat stand, it does the job. So how do l describe this house as in the temporary home? Four walls, a roof and doors and windows – that’s basically it. My office is my real bubble – and for me that is a mental escape pod.

How Easily Social Are You?

Not blowing my own trumpet, however l am a really nice, friendly and approachable guy. I am never rude to people unnecessarily as l don’t believe there is any reason for that. I can turn ugly though if pushed to areas l don’t want to be in or provoked beyond acceptable limits. But l am not particularly anti-social or asocial, l am selectively social. But years in the service industry has allowed me to be able to master and manipulate being social – not in the smarmy way – the genuinely really pleased to see you way – but it can be tiresome to be friendly all the time. I struggle with being social. I have to remind myself to socialise, and if people drift out of my ‘six’ or hot zone, l tend to forget them.

I lose friends because people think l am selfish, or egotistical, eccentric, unfriendly or asocial and l am not, but if people don’t talk to me and l don’t talk to them in a regular fashion, l simply forget them and move on. There is no hostility to them from me, usually, people start to resent me because they think l am rude and l am not, not intentionally – but if people aren’t talking on a regular basis, then surely there isn’t anything to say anyway and if that is the case, what’s the problem with a lack of sociality? If we start talking again, l am always socially polite and mean it.

Do you have any bad bones in your body?

As a child this always confused me as to its meaning? “Not a bad bone in his body” People used to say and l would always think “How do they know that or not?” In truth it means that a person is not bad, or jealous or dishonest, they are not a liar, a thief and so on …. but mostly it ties in with jealousy – are you a jealous person, do you have the green eyes of envy present within you?

I can honesly say in so far as the envy/jealousy – l don’t suffer from either envy or jealousy in a real fashion …as in l might joke, ‘OH l am envious of that!” To a person, but it’s jest, l don’t care about envy … now when l was in my thirties l was dating a woman who was gorgeous and she was really social. She had a lot of boyfriends’ who were just that ‘Friends that happened to be boys!’ Not actual boyfriends. I got jealous once of this super uber rugged fireman she went to dinner with once and she decided that ‘jealousy and envy’ were not for her and so she dumped me. I learned a valuable lesson from her that day ‘”Rory learn to take compliments to your partners as compliments to you!” Valuable lesson, these days l don’t get jealous, don’t allow envy to enter my life.

If another fellow looks at Suze, l take that as a compliment – because l am the one she is with each day, we have love and a relationship – but if another guy or woman finds her attractive, yes it is a compliment but also a turn on for me.  So that lesson l learned about taking compliments as compliments to both of us when l was 31 was a lesson well learned and has served me well for 20+ years.

Could you simply eat one meal for the rest of your life?

Suze, Lifestyle, Nutritionist and the list goes on … tell me continually that l must eat from a balanced diet. I say l could eat one dish for the rest of my life each and every day and it wouldn’t bother me …apparently, this is totally unnacceptable! When asked what food l would eat, l always answer with Pizza!

But there are foods that you could almost live off entirely such as potatoes, kale, trail mixes, avocadoes, rabbit – as examples – however if you were to combine all of those ingredients together to make one meal, there is a goodly chance that is the meal you could eat everyday for the rest of your life.

The reality for me on that meal is …. l can only eat kale and avocado as l am no longer a meat eater, am allergic to nuts and have an intolerance to potatoes! However all that aside ‘could you eat one meal for the rest of your life and if so what would it be?’

  1. How would you describe your home?

    A chaotic mess filled with love and laughter where everyone is eccentric or quirky, even the 4 legged members.

    How Easily Social Are You?

    I can do the small talk social thing. I’m a friendly person by nature. I’m also a hermit and an introvert so I dont socialize offline much. Online I’m quite chatty. I know, shocking right?

    Do you have any bad bones in your body?

    If you mean jealousy/envy. No, not really. There are things people have or do that I would like but I dont spend a lot of time dwelling on what I DONT have. I try to stay focused on the things I DO have.
    I have told people I envy their ability to sleep or their quiet houses or their travel plans, but it’s in fun and its fleeting. That old saying, “be careful what you wish for…”

    Could you simply eat one meal for the rest of your life?

    I have a weird relationship with food. I have to make myself eat. Even when my stomach is rumbling and a favorite meal is available. I’m sure it goes back to my bad teeth & the constant cycle of opiate withdrawal years ago.
    I could very easily eat one meal for the rest of my life. I eat because I HAVE to. And I usually eat at night before bed, which is so bad for me and also for my waistline😂

    1. Hey Angie, many thanks for answering the Daily Four 🙂

      I eat because l have to eat, totally can relate to that – otherwise many a time it’s an annoyance 🙂

  2. Perfect description of your sociability. I can relate entirely. And pizza is a perfectly acceptable answer for the only food one could eat all the time; however, I am biased since I come from the land of New York Pizza. 🍕😋

    1. Hey Emily, this is what l say to Suze – that the pizza is an ideal all in one meal – if the foods aren’t on there then the answer is simple … put them on it then 🙂

  3. How would you describe your home?
    Urban Oasis

    How Easily Social Are You?
    I can be easily social. I just usually don’t want to be.

    Do you have any bad bones in your body?
    I’m b-b-b-bad to the bone!

    Could you simply eat one meal for the rest of your life?
    No, I need at least some variety in what’s left of my life.

  4. Nice post Rory 😀.

    1. Even though my home is a tent I would say ” too small “.

    2. I’m a introverted hermit by nature, I normally don’t talk to people unless they talk to me first but I’m friendly and kind to people when I do talk to them.

    3. No and yes, I would get jealous of other guys hanging out with my girlfriend’s when I was in high school but I keeper my mouth shut about it

    1. Dame acsadently hit post.

      3. Kind of envys of cis woman but not really it’s a off and on passing thought mostly when my depression flares up.

      4. No way, I need veryate of taste I get bored eating the same thing, fast.
