This week’s 5 is inspired by the party game called Taboo, in which players must make their teammates utter key words by giving them clues. The twist is that each key word is assigned five Taboo words, and players are forbidden from using the Taboo words in their clues. For example, one key word might be milk, and its Taboo words might be dairy, cow, drink, white, and carton. Your clue might be something like, “It’s a beverage from Bessie,” or “You add it to coffee,” or “The land of BLANK and honey,” or “It comes out of breasts.”
Your task is simply to answer these five questions without using any of the Taboo words or phrases. Challenge yourself not just to avoid using the words, but to think of fresh, new answers to these sort of cliched meme questions!Who’s making a positive difference in your life?
Taboo words: friends, family, husband/wife/spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend.
I'd like to think that I am making a positive difference in my life as my decisions and my choices determine the outcome of my actions and the path I will take. I will say though that in order to make those decisions and choices you have to have the support from important and influential people in your life. The people I surround myself with always make a positive difference.
Where would you like to be right now?
Taboo words: home, bed, anywhere but here.
Let's see. I would like to be hanging out with my husband - maybe at the beach with our dog.
What’s the first thing you’d do with a $5,000 (or your local equivalent) gift?
Taboo words: save, debt, vacation, payments, invest.
I would take that money and do great things with it - Like send some in to Chase bank :) College was expensive. Then maybe put some in this neat little account I have that stores all your money for you.
What super-power would you really like to have?
Taboo words: invisibility, x-ray vision, flying, strength, transform.
I would like to be able to calm people's emotions like Jasper in Twilight - then if anyone was having a bad day I could make them feel better :)
What’s your favorite sound?
Taboo words: laughter, music, ocean, wind, ____’s voice.
Peacefulness. Whenever I just really sit and listen...you can hear peace in the air. Sit outside one day, close your eyes and listen. Take in what's around you. That's my favorite sound.
