What About You? (Quick Questions Sunday #18)

We answer ‘quick questions’ here on I Tripped Over a Stone on Sundays.

Why? 

Because… I blog. I get sick of me. I want to hear from you!

Don’t think, just answer!

  1. Have you ever played Dodge Ball?
  2. Have you ever attended a black-tie event (for what)?
  3. What is your all-time favorite line from a movie?

  1. Yes… but it was called ‘murder-ball’ or ‘trenches.’
  2. Yes, for a charity event, the Chrones and Colitis Awareness Alliance.
  3. I have two, I can’t decide…”Say hello to my little friend!” (Al Pachino, Scarface.) “What am I, a Clown?” (Joe Pesci, GoodFellas.)

    1. YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH! That is a go down in history line! And really, Wendi, how many times have we actually resorted to looking a certain way in public because those around us can not handle the truth of our situation! Very cool. I loved playing dodgeball, I often won! (ok, I won, once… but I felt like a stud!) the black tie event… my husband looked sharp. 10 minutes into the thing I snagged my panty hose, had to take them off, thank god my legs were tan, but had no underwear on because they were built into the hose! I’m sitting at a $15,000 table in a silk black dress with no underwear on!😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

      1. OK that is awesome! what a great story to be at such an elegant event and sitting at a table with no undies. 🙂
        and yes, “you can’t handle the truth” is what I have wanted to yell so many times to so many people………
        thanks again for the great story Kim 🙂

  3. 1. Hahahaha! Dodgeball! I hated that sick game of torture, but yeah, I played. 😉
    2. No
    3. Nobody puts Baby in a corner. – Still my all-time favorite chick flick!

    And, I have never heard of Dodgeball being called anything but Dodgeball, but I totally think ‘murder-ball’ is much more accurate for the feel of the game. 😉

  5. Sitting by the lake with coffee sounds restorative!

    1. Yep! Restored, lunch and nap time! Dodge ball! I admit I have never see, Casablanca!!! I know, I know! It’s on my wish list. The hubs just got me to watch, breakfast at Tiffany’s! Oh man… I’m one lost puppy! Thank you Jayne!😊💜

  6. Hard questions today, Kim! Okay, let’s see:
    1) Loved Dodge Ball and was very good at it! Must have had pent-up hostilities when I was a kid!
    2) Yes; but damned if I can remember right now; which means that something awkward must have happened and so it’s blocked from my memory. Hmmm.
    3) Princess Bride (which has so many great lines) but…”Inconceivable!” And I also love the comeback maybe even more: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Ah, hell, you can’t go wrong with any lines from Princess Bride! (You know I’m going to spend the rest of the day thinking: Oh, damn, I should have written this line instead, right?) LOL. 🙂

    1. I think Dodgeball helped me learn the art of patience. When somebody pissed me off… guess what, we are playing Dodgeball in an hour, hope you hav3 been working on your dodging skills.😉 the black tie blackout. Can’t wait! Love your one liners! It is really hysterical reading everyone’s! Yes, you’ll have more! Haha… if it weighs on your mind come back and add it! Thanks Mona!😂🤣💜

  7. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is an absolute favorite. My grandmother, my mom and my two aunts all loved old black and white movies so I grew up on them. Absolutely love them. Our 18 yr old niece lived with us while she was attending university and I was so blessed because she really enjoyed watching them with me. It was so much fun to share them and to be able to see these movies which I have literally seen so many times I can recite the dialogue, through her fresh eyes. Before I got her hooked on these classics, I remember asking her if she liked old movies. She said, “Yeah, there are some really cool ones from the 8os and 90s”.

  8. 1) When I was early on in my teaching career, I discovered that 7 year-olds LOVE playing dodgeball. Our main rule was that you had to aim at the feet, not the head/ So no, I never played it, but I “coached” it, lol.
    2) Our whole family went on the Queen Mary a few years ago, and there were a lot of “black tie” nights.
    3) We’re gonna need a bigger boat.

  9. Yes, I’ve played Dodge Ball and hated every second of it. Sadly, I was bullied as a child (small town) and I didn’t last long playing because I was targeted first and had the bruises to prove it. I have attended several black tie affairs from Christmas balls, a couple Marine Balls (I guess that’s not technically black tie, but marines in their dress uniforms are even better), and an awards evening for work. My favorite line is a famous one, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” The older I get, the more I use it. Great questions! 🙂

  10. Yes in grade school and I hated it.
    Yep, for a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society and another for the March of Dimes.
    I don’t know, I can’t think right now, it’s late. Stuart and I are always quoting things from shows and movies, I’m not sure I can pick just one.One of my favorites is “It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die” Agnes from Despicable Me.
    and just about any line from The Princes Bride. We went down the aisle to the theme song from that movie.

    1. Hahaha! I like to make machine gun noises after I say that one liner! It’s so fun! I’m such a dork!!! Trenches. You get hit by the ball, you and up in an area behind your opponents area called the trench, you can still play to get back in… if a ball crosses the trench line… you can throw it, knock someone out and get back in! Trenches! (aka Murder-Ball!) I stick to board games and cards these days…plenty of action for me! 😂🤣😂🤣

  11. 1. When I was young I wasn’t much of an athlete. Skinny, wiry, disinterested, that kind of thing. So I didn’t get picked much for the team. The two exceptions to this rule were that (a) I could run really fast so folks liked me for relays, and (b) dodgeball. I was always among the last ones standing because, as I said before: skinny and wiry. 😁

    2. I don’t think so. Does my wedding count?

    3. This is a weird one. The moment I read the question the first movie that popped into mind was “Get Shorty.” Chili Palmer, played by John Travolta, is one of my all-time favorite characters, and what he told Harry after meeting with Bo and Ronnie stuck with me forever and still helps me to this day, 25 years later. Chili told Harry these simple words: “Never say anything unless you have to.” In sales, marriage, writing, or life, these words have helped me close the sale, avoid the fight, and earn respect over and over and over again. Whenever I nail it, whatever it was, I remember Chili Palmer telling me how, and I thank him once again. 🙂

    1. Brother Tom! I believe you’ve nailed these questions! You’d be the perfect Dodgeball candidate and were. Yes! Wedding counts! …rounding third base with, “Never say anything unless you have to.” Chili Palmer brings you home! Bravo Tom!!! And congratulations!🎉🎉🎉

  12. (1) I loved dodgeball and I think children are better off when they get to play it.

    (2) I love black tie events. When I came to my current situation I made sure to bring a dress in my suitcase.

    (3) Obviously…

    1. I agree, being in a game of dodgeball really can be a bonding experience! I believe you will always be prepared for a black tie event! Great you enjoy yourself at them. I do love seeing everyone dressed to the nines! “Obviously!” Great answers, thanks Kit!😊💜
