Five Question Friday...

The 'doonmeister says...


I just found out the "Big V" is for vasectomy. So, I will have to change my answer...


1. If your husband the BIG V and you got pregnant what would your first reaction be? For the dudes, what would your first reaction be if your wife told you she was pregnant after the Big V?


Okay, now I know what the 'BIG V' is and it, definitely, is not a basketball team in Victoria.


Statistically, it is possible, although I would think not probable, that a vasectomy would fail. The failure rate is less than 1%, which means it could happen.


I would be extremely surprised and take it from there. (I am ___ years status post the vasectomy, without any problems...)

2. Best memory about this summer so far.

The desert ride, Millard County, Utah, (that's an ATV ride, BTW)

3. How often do you change your sheets? Your kids sheets?

Sheets are supposed to be changed?

My 'kids' sleep on the floor. They think sheets are something to play tug-of-war with.

4. Having just gone through TSA, would you rather have a full-body scan or a pat-down?

The TSA has backed down on the full body scanners and the pat downs. The new 'software' for the backscatter scanners shows a 'cartoon' outline of a person, not the naked person they used to show. The software, also, is claimed to be able to alert the operator of any trouble 'spots'.

You will be patted down if the software thinks you are a danger...

Until the software is put in the majority of airports and it has been shown it works, I don't fly commercial. Under any circumstances. General aviation, only.


Here are articles detailing the TSA'snew 'software':

The chance of dying in an aircraft hijacking is astronomical. Check out the statistics at Terrorism and You – The Real Odds.

5. Since it is fair time...what's your favorite fair (county or state) memory?

Western Montana State Fair
