A Five-Year Interview

So, I heard this thing once in a seminar - if you were to be interviewed 5 years from now, how would you answer these questions?  For you, dearest reader, anything.  So I present, for your enjoyment....

An interview with Tina - September 1, 2016
(conducted on the veranda at my beach house on a day that's not too hot and not too cold)

What time did you get up today?

I rise every morning at 5:00.  I spend the first hour of my day in meditation and physical exercise, then I shower and enjoy a nutritious breakfast while I watch the news.  I then get ready for work and head out the door.

What do you drive to work?

I have a mid-size car that gets great gas mileage and handles like a dream in the snow.  I paid cash for it so I have no car payment.  It's not brand-new, but it was affordable and it's reliable.

What kind of job to you have?

I work a few hours a day as a volunteer at a local museum.  I then head home and spend the balance of my day writing the latest in my series of best-selling novels.  It pays the bills.

How do you spend your spare time?

Doing whatever I can, whenever I can.  I go where the wind takes me and love to try anything new and interesting.  I'm just as happy in a ratty old bookstore as I am at a sell-out concert.  I have one son left at home; he will graduate from high school next year and so I spend as much time in family activities while I still can.  I am quadruply happy when I am with the man I love.

What kind of man is in your life?

A wonderful, fabulous, caring, intimate, sexy, take-charge man who completely and utterly adores me, and has absolutely no problem telling me at least 5 times a day.  In return, I completely and utterly adore him back.  He's completely hot and has no idea, he has a stable job, he is active in our community and cares for his fellow man.

Where will you be in 5 years? 

Exactly where I am right now.  My life is completely perfect.

Well, there you have it. You are then supposed to go back in time 5 years and ask yourself the same questions, to see how far you've come.  By showing you how far you've come in 5 years, you are supposed to feel all warm and fuzzy about your chances at meeting your "5 years from now" description and goals.

So, now it's your turn.  Lay your answers on me.


  1. What time did you get up today? 11:30 ish

    What kind of job to you have? I don't work. I hit the lucky lotto numbers 3 years ago.

    What do you drive to work? I use my favorite pair of flip flops to get from the bedroom to the pool

    How do you spend your spare time? European vacations?

    What kind of man is in your life? My accountant. He has an expensive suit and great intuition. I'm in love with him. So is are my wife and kids

    Where will you be in 5 years? Who can guess...

  2. I love the "11:30-ish" response. I can't stop laughing. Either your answers are exceedingly witty, or I accidently double-dosed on the diet pills today.
