The usual questions and the perhaps unusual answers.

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

Night was dark, as it usually is.  The preceding day was filled with possibility both endless and present.  And then I came across a post that posed some pretty interesting, if not totally cliche-like questions, one can ask them self.  This post came from the ultra-liberal Nicholas Goglucci.  Don't judge, liberals have their rightful place here on earth as well.  Political ideology aside, I'd like to answer those questions (I've chosen ten from the lot) for me ... and for my Mother just in case she still has my Father's balls and consistently reads my stuff.

If you had only 24 hours to live, what would you do?  Assuming somebody else has ran naked through Pompano Beach chanting Nick's name before me, I'd opt to go out a ball of fire without hurting a soul.  Until I know how to do that, this life is stuck with me.

 
If the whole world were listening, what would you say?  This one is a doozie.  If I try to be a smart-ass about it, it won't be funny enough.  If I try to intellectualize and spiritualize it, that will far short as well.  So, I'll just be honest:
My name is Jason Sardi and I wish I could cure all the answers to the questions and supply every euphoric need we speak of, but this is LIFE folks.  And life is rough, tough, and so fulfilling at various moments.  Sometimes we wipe a butt with sandpaper and sometimes we use Wet Ones.  Do yourself a favor though, MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD LISTEN.  You strive for that, you're probably on a good path.


If one song were to describe your life, what song would it be?  Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel is hard to beat.  Baker's Street is a close second (Gerry Rafferty).


If you could ask God any one question, what would it be?  Not to wax intellectual here, but I'm not sure if I would have a question.  If there is God, that would be all the answer I needed ... and if there isn't, please somebody tell me if OJ did it or not?  That way, I can rest peacefully.


If you could be a super hero, which super hero would you be?   Spiderman.  Anyone who knows me knows why. 

If you could be another man or woman for a day, who would you choose?  Janet Reno, so I could be both.

If you could be another person for a day, who would you be?  Someone observing me for a whole day.  I want to see my shortcomings and strengths from another's viewpoint.  Color me selfish like that.


If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?  My lack of patience and inability to take heed of my gifts and use them to their greatest capacity. 


If you could choose how you were going to die, what would you choose your death to be?  I'm pretty sure it is going to be a car accident and I won't be driving, but if I'm to choose ... that ball of fire will do.  Not cancer, nor car wreck, nor falling off my roof because I let the leaves pile up in the gutter ... I want to die in the sky, plane crash to be exact.

If you could meet any famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?  Bruce Lee, no doubt.  I love heroes who die early and have imperfections galore.  What makes that guy stand out in my book is that he's a hero to me intellectually, philosophically, and physically.  It would be kind of cool talking to the chap and having him kicking my ass around until I decide to stop smoking and stomp the little shit.

A lot of ONE questions for deep thought Jason, all good. My God question is why do we have to go through this fallen world drill? Seems like it is a test for the chosen and the unchosen, so we do still have that free will thing to deal with.

Jason, Some interesting thinking there.  Can always count on something different to stir the gray matter when stopping by :)

Jason,

How do you get from "The preceding day was filled with possibility both endless and present."  to  "If you had only 24 hours to live, what would you do?"  Today,tomorrow and the days after them, offer a full 24 hours of opportunities, too!

Bill

PS: I'm reminded of the man who said "I want to die in my sleep like my Grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers!"

Ah Jason, all these questions come from the very basic; "What's the meaning of life?"  For me, the answer is simple; leave it better than you found it...

Oh, and 'may the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.'

Oh, there are so many things I have to say about this...

one, I always thought that Goglucci was the ultra-conservative....

two, the questions....hmmm...why didn't you link to Goglucci's post? Maybe there were other questions to be tackled...

three, You always did have a way of turning things on their head. But all that being said, I kinda liked it. I get the Spiderman thing, even though I personally am caught between being Professor X and Jean Grey. I might explain that down the road....

Jason, you have a ton of cojones to answer those questions....or even not to answer those questions.

Great questions and even better answers.  I am not sure I could be so impartial.
