Feast One Hundred & Twenty Eight - tres

Appetizer
If you could take lessons to learn any musical instrument, which would you want to learn?
Assuming the voice is indeed a musical instrument…I would like to take lessons to learn how to sing. My Mama and my daughter both have incredibly beautiful voices. I love to sing...but have not been blessed with that natural gift…

Soup
Have you ever mistaken a person for someone else?
I have not.

Salad
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how well do you keep secrets?
Secrets which people have entrusted to me = 10
Secrets I learn of my own accord = 7 (ouch)

Main Course
What's the closest you've ever been to a dangerous animal?
When I was just a little girl, whenever we were visiting my Grandparents in Indiana…my father would take me very early in the morning to the zoo at Columbia Park to watch them feed the Lions. We would go inside this stone building where the Lions slept at night. We would be the only visitors there and the employees would let us stand right outside the cages. We were within three feet of them.

My sister and I were once about twenty feet from a brown bear while camping at Yosemite. She was just a toddler....so I was probably nine or ten. I remember calling out to my Dad who thought I was joking ...and told me to stop fooling around....until he looked up. The bear was going for the garbage dump and had no interest...but my sister was just about to chase him when my Dad scooped her up.

Dessert
When was the last time you lost your patience?
Tuesday.

Gee, a bear ! Sounds so strange to me besides in zoos I never saw a bear not even in Yosemetee park. And here in Belgium you can only watch cats or dogs emptying the garbidge, lol !

Yoshi said...

Hmm. So do bears show up often in Yosemite? I might have to keep that in mind when I finally get around to going there someday.

I say the voice can definitely an instrument, why not?

I'm with you on the singing. My ex had a very nice singing voice and he passed it down to all three of the kids. I can't carry a tune in a bucket!

Hope you have a good day :)

Wow, that would have been neat to watch them feed the lions.....as long as there was still a metal cage seperating me from them!

What a neat experience with your granparents

I'd love to be that close to the lions . . . so long as there was a fence between us that they could not break through.

Wowed at the fact that you've never mistaken a person! You're awesome!

The bear story sounds scary. I probably would've screamed...or maybe just stood in terror!

Great feast.

I remember the bears at Yosemite. The trash cans were right outside our cabin, and wandered over every night right after dark. My mom would start yelling for us to get in around dusk.
