Your Smiling Face

1. No matter what's going on in your life, what always makes you smile?


2. What's the biggest lie you've ever told?

Hmm...that we're having a happy marriage.

3. Do you hold a grudge?

Not really. I live each day for the first time, as much as possible.
But now I'm getting older it can take a few days when I feel someone should have known better.
Making mistakes is human, but making the same mistake over and over again makes clear that a person doesn't want to learn. Especially when respect for other people is concerned it gets to me.

4. What is the worst job you've ever had?

Well, I've tried to enjoy every job.
Even my worst job was kind of nice.
I worked at a large machine, about 30 years ago.
It pushed letters in iron plates which were used to print.
The machine had a keyboard where each letter was represented with a fist-size button. It needed heavy force to push it.
More of a man's job, maybe.
Took me a lot of aspirin each day to get my job done.

5. What would be your dream job?

Photographer in Scotland,
worldwide travelreporter,
teacher or doctor in Africa,
singer in a band (I've enjoyed that sooo much)

6. What is the happiest event you've experienced?

Birth of my first child. I didn't realise then that babies also could die in my life.

7. What is the saddest thing you've experienced?

The death of my second baby.
Washing her clothes in the night after she died, because I didn't want someone else to do so. My socalled husband asleep, the world asleep.

8. Do you tend to exaggerate or underestimate?

I often underestimate how mean and uncaring some people can be.
I don't often exaggerate, unless it's for a very very good cause. I'm a very bad lyer, so it doesn't happen often.

9. List the cars that you have owned. Give us just a few words about each one.

I have never owned a car.

I had a cartoy when I was 3. Got it with the groceries. When my nephew entered the room I was ordered to give it to him. He played with my dolls too, but I wasn't allowed to play with the car anymore.
I think it was my first lesson in keeping my mouth shut in front of grown-ups. I also think it laid the foundation for the feeling that life takes more than it gives.
I've been a rather silent child ever since, my gram told me.

I smile, I see, I give and people take.
But the last years I've changed. I smile, I see, people take, and I yell as hard as I can to tell them that their act is injustice.
