My own vulnerability appeals to me

Dawn and Sam have both indulged in a new (to me) Internet “meme” (sigh). It runs as follows:

Ask me four questions.

Any four, no matter how personal, private or random.
I have to answer them honestly. I have to answer them all.
In turn, you post this message in your own journal and you have to answer the questions that are asked to you.

Both of them have stipulations, which is understandable given that this little “meme” makes people extremely vulnerable.

This seems like something that I would be eager to participate in. And I am interested in seeing what four questions people would ask me. I don’t have any stipulations, either…you can post anonymously if you want, and I don’t care if you don’t put the questions on your own journal.

But I’m not so thrilled about the part where I have to ask other people four questions. It somehow seems strange to me, discussing private things in a vacuum like that. Using an Internet quiz to get to the meaty matters that typically fall beneath the surface of normal conversation.

I guess I prefer to ask my impertinent questions without the assistance (read: safety zone) of structure.

In any event, if anyone out there wants to ask me any questions, I’ll answer honestly, as always. But I think I’ll have to ponder awhile before I can come up with questions for anyone else.
