WHAT WOULD WE EVER DO WITHOUT YOU :panic:
Lead unhappy, unfulfilled lives, never knowing what you were missing. :(

The unusual thing about me and salsa...is that I do not like salsa of any kind. I don't like peppers or onions or spicy things. Every now and then my mom will make quesadillas, and for mine she will use a small amount of mild salsa, which I tolerate. In my house there is no salsa. :noway:

Because they taste disgusting, and that taste lingers in my mouth for so long that I highly resent any time that it accidentally happens. Eww.

I respect other people's right to eat all the onions they want. Just don't put them in my food.

When did you have anxiety only to find it completely unnecessary?

can you tolerate it if it's cooked or mixed with a lot of spices/veggies? or absolutely not all? :-k

This is such a great question because as soon as I read it, I was sure that this has happened to be lots of times, but when I tried to come up with one to share, I couldn't think of any particular time. Sometimes this happens when I think someone will be unpleasant in the future but then it isn't actually too bad.

Very small pieces of thoroughly cooked onion is tolerable, like in soup, because then you can't really taste them, but I still pick them out if possible.

Why has nobody asked the great @Catspaw a question since May?

Do you have any events or election type plans coming up?

Maybe people are less curious than they used to be!

Yes, a new election is coming very soon! Keep your eyes peeled.

I'm single so I don't know if I'm quite the expert on the subject. I personally think books and chocolate make for a pretty good gift. If you're looking for a real answer, I think that whatever shows the recipient that you care about them and you know them is the best gift.

If you wanted your username changed you should have run for office so you could have changed it yourself. :noway:

That does sound like a lovely gift. Is that was CA got for Valentine's Day?

What is your secret to conflict resolution? I'm always impressed by how tactfully you handle the disagreements that crop up on the ToO from time to time.

Oh my, that is both a nice compliment and a hard question! There have been plenty of times that I wish I was better at conflict resolution, so I don't consider myself perfect in this area by any means. One thing I do is to try to see things from different perspectives. Even if I still firmly believe that one person or view is incorrect, I at least try to understand why people think something or are acting a certain way. That builds in a bit more compassion and less of an "us vs. them" kind of mentality. There are smart and caring people who disagree on important things, and there are smart and caring people who sometimes make bad choices for a variety of reasons. I try to show grace if it's the latter situation, and then hope that others do the same for me when I say or do something they don't care for! Seeking God's wisdom is always a good thing, and I sometimes have been given a good idea or patience at the right time. I also have a lot of years of life experience (I am terribly old) so that helps too. I probably see things differently now than I have at some points in the past.
