Manic Monday #19

Question #1 - What is your ideal age? 
My ideal age is this one. I'm 41, I live well, I have a great wife and the most wonderful kids. And I get to spend a good amount of time with them. And they're still at an age in which they want to spend time with me!
Question #2 - What is your best excuse for being late?
I don't use excuses. If I'm late because I fell asleep, I will tell my boss "Sorry, I fell asleep, I will make up the time tonight". Actually, that is what happened today...
Question #3 - If you had to give yourself a nickname, what would it be?
No idea. I have a nickname that my wife uses all the time, and it's "Poli". It goes all the way back to 1991, when I travelled to Chile for the last time. I noticed that the slang Chilean word for boyfriend is 'pololo' (and 'polola' for the girlfriend), and I found the word funny, so I started to call Gaby 'polola' upon my return. She did the same, and with the time, both 'pololo' and 'polola' became 'Poli'. So she calls me 'Poli' and I call her 'Poli, seventeen years later! :-)


  1. You are fast! I was just here and I could swear that this post was not here :) I have no idea what my ideal age would be....Maybe, wait, maybe it will be 40..or maybe, it was 20... You know my nickname...I have been called Biddie as far back as I can remember. My brother calls me 'Bidd' for short, and when my Mum was still spaeaking to me, I was Biddiegirl...Sometimes I call Shawn Mr. Shawn. I have no idea where that came from, but it stuck :)

  2. I <>was<> fast this time, because I just happened to be on my lunch break when I realized I hadn't done my 'Manic Monday' post. So I went there, found it, and wrote my answers in about a minute and a half...I'm stream-blogging. I didn't do anything since midnight on Sunday and then I published two posts within five minutes or so. And I expect people to keep up and read. And comment! And then you do it, so it must be OK! :-)

  3. Great answers, as ever. You're around the same age as I am, and I agree - it's the best age! Love your answer to #3. Happy MM!

  4. I’m with you about whatever age we are being ideal! I’m participating in Manic Monday for the first time at Small Reflections. Hope you’ll find time to visit ;--)Hugs and blessings,

  5. What a cute reason to have a husband and I do something along those lines, using a variation of our last name to refer to each other.Happy Monday!
