Question..

Maya Angelou said this:

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights”

…what would Maya Angelou think about you?


I'd probably pass the rainy day test and I think I'd do alright in the lost luggage scenario, but my lack of patience would be evident once she saw me stuff the lights in the trash and head off to Target to buy new ones, while mumbling something under my breath about "someone" not putting the lights away properly last year.

Rainy days are fine, the luggage thing I think I could handle (depending on who I was with and how tired or hungry I was!), and I actually kind of like untangling Christmas lights. Now...bad drivers, traffic and loud people talking on cell phones....that's another story! ;-)

We probably wouldn't get along. Rainy days depress me, I actually don't usually check my luggage so I can avoid that whole flipping out on the airline scene when they lose it. When I try to untangle the Christmas lights I end up smashing a few of them so I have to go out and buy new ones anyways! What a shame!

I do enjoy her writing though!

Praise God for the rain, imagine life w/out it, I don't fly & gave my Christmas stuff to Trish - but anything technical, TV remotes, VCR, cell phones, etc. - no patience!

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Luggage would only be a problem if I had nothing else to wear and I was on a African Safari trip.

Rainy days is Southwest Florida are sooo welcomed. However, they are only tolerable in New England when I am there.

The tangled Christmas lights makes me break out in a cold sweat. I think I bought the first pre-lite Christmas tree at a price that I am embarrased to quote.

Loss of luggage would probably not be an issue in Africa, I think the dress code is pretty lax there.
