Friday 5 for January 22: Every family has one

Answers to questions from Friday Five:


Who’s the nastiest flavor in the ice cream parlor?
Lime sherbet. I mean…why?? At least give it some dignity and blend it with some tequila.


Which item in the produce aisle is most likely to spoil the party?
Durian fruit. Speaking of which, I’d like to change my answer to the first question to: durian ice cream. Yes–it exists. And people eat it!!


What’s the most embarrassing song by your favorite musician or band?
This World Is So F*cked Up (But I Ain’t Never Giving Up On It)” by Michael Franti & Spearhead —
Feel free to call me an old, pearl-clutching biddy, but I really wish Michael would have used a more creative term. Opting for the F-word simply wrecks a powerful message that needs to be shared. I wouldn’t want my young children singing along to that. 😰 Maybe that’s the point? I dunno.


Which part of your body is always in trouble?
A uterus at its end-life, going for its last hurrah with much gusto and with many fibroid and polyp friends who keep making a reappearance.


What’s the worst film in your favorite actor’s filmography?
Wonder Wheel” starring Kate Winslet —
It’s about living the rat race on a filthy beach. It’s supposed to have a twist and a little intrigue, but–it stinks! Also, it’s a Woody Allen film, so there is a level of quirk and drama. However, I am not a Woody Allen fan at all, which may be an annoyance or surprise to some. (I’m also not a fan of U2 nor the Beatles. Or carrots.) Would I have watched this film had I known it was written and directed by Woody Allen? Yes, but only for Kate, but I just couldn’t get into this one–it was thoroughly unenjoyable and the best part about the film was the trailer. Honestly, I didn’t even finish watching this one, but…it’s on my Amazon watchlist. Saving it for a rainy day. Or at least for a day when I need to vacuum the living room.
