So I was talking to Alison Wonderland this weekend about all of these lame memes that have been making their way around Facebook. Specifically, the lame “Yes or No” meme.
Yes or No Share
1. You can ONLY answer Yes or No!
2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages or comments you and asks!
Now, here’s what you’re supposed to do… And please do not spoil the Fun. Copy and paste this into your notes , delete my answers, type in your answers and tag as many of your friends as you’d like to. Then see what happens.
Kissed anyone one of your facebook friends? yes
Been arrested? no
Kissed someone you didn’t like? no
Slept in until 5 PM? yes
Fallen asleep at work/school? yes
Held a turantula? no
Wished you were someone else? yes
Ran a red light? yes
Been suspended from school? no
Been expelled from school? no
Smoked in a bathroom? no
Totalled your car/motorbike in an accident? no
Been fired from a job? no
Sang karaoke? yes
Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t? yes
Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose? yes
Caught a snowflake on your tongue? yes
Kissed in the rain? yes

Sleep on a certain side of the bed? yes

I finished mine off with, “Who comes up with these lists? I’m sure we could think of more interesting questions…”
And then Alison said, “Yeah, aren’t these supposed to be provocative and intriguing so that we wonder why you answered the way you did? I gotta say, I don’t wonder at all. We should come up with one of our own!”
And then Madhousewife said, “Well, I’m a little curious about how you made someone cry. Unless it was Chuck, in which case I don’t want to know. “
And I said, “Oh I made all the boys cry.” and “I agree, Alison. Get on that, will you?”
And then Alison said, “I’m on it.”
And then some guy I used to date said, “Bythelbs made me cry!”
And then I said, “Good, now I can check you off my list!”
And then he said, “Wow! You have a list of people you want to make cry!”
And then I said, “Yeah, a list of one!”
But I digress.
That Alison is a woman of her word.
She’s already got a decent start on the new and improved, latest and greatest, hopefully-not-quite-so-annoying and pointlessly lameoid Facebook meme, but I’m going to enlist your help over here as well. They’ve got a lot of open-ended questions over there, but I have to tell you, I kind of like the Yes or No thing. I like being left to go “Hmmm…”. I want to want more of the story. I want a certain degree of ambiguity so I can interpret the answers to my greatest amusement. So I’m going to ask for the Yes or No kind of questions that start with “Have you ever…”
Here are just a few to get you going:
Have you ever…
had a secret admirer?
been a secret admirer?
secretly wished you had a secret admirer who wasn’t so very good at keeping secrets?
had someone tell your secret after they promised not to?
told someone else’s secret after you promised not to?
rationalized away the telling of a secret because you didn’t receive explicit instructions to keep the information secret even though it was almost certainly an implied secret?
assumed and then made an a$$ out of you and me?
written an angry letter that you never sent?
written an angry letter that you never planned to send, but then a “friend” decided to send it for you even though they knew you had no such intention to do so yourself?
pretended to not be home when someone you knew was at the door?
pretended to not be home when the someone you knew who was at the door was a member of your family and was just locked out?
ever cut your toenails and then shoved the clippings under the couch?
ever cut your toenails and then shoved the clippings under the couch and then spent the next 15 years denying it whenever your spouse brought it up?
drunk the juice from the pickle jar?
drunk the juice from the pickle jar through a straw?
And then here’s a couple just to separate out the freaks:
knowingly and/or willingly eaten a raisin?
knowingly and/or willingly eaten a raisin and enjoyed it?
So come on now, help some sisters out. What does your inquiring mind want to know?
P.S. Obviously, none of these come from personal experience. Just throwing random stuff out there.
