Three Deep Questions

Deep questions I challenge you to publicly answer:

  1. Name a childhood regret, something you did as a kid that you wish you hadn’t done.
  2. Name something you love to do, but wish you could do it better.
  3. Name something really big you want to do but it is so huge you can’t even get started.

My responses:

  1. Name a childhood regret, something you did as a kid that you wish you hadn’t done.

    One day when tramping through the woods near my house with some of my friends, we got to Meatball Mountain, a mountain that we kids loved to explore. It towered above us by several hundred feet (remembering at it now, it was probably 20 feet high). Just getting to the top of it was an accomplishment. We all managed to get to the top, then we explored. We found a lake (probably only 10 feet across). And on a rock sunning itself, minding its own business was a short black snake. We all started tossing rocks at the snake. It woke up, and started slithering towards the forest. So what do we do? Let it go? No, we started chasing the snake. It doubled back and went under the water. A few rocks created large enough splashes that it came back up. The snake went into a hole in the ground. We found some bigger rocks, and proceeded to smash the area near that hole with lots of rocks. I assume we killed the snake. It’s been probably 30 years since that day, and I have felt bad about that poor frightened snake ever since then.

  2. Name something you love to do, but wish you could do it better.

    I love swimming, but am not very good at it. I don’t think I’ll drown, but I’m sure my flailing at the water provides lots of enjoyment to the lifeguards.

  3. Name something really big you want to do but it is so huge you can’t even get started.

    I’d love to bicycle across America. Right now it’s hard enough to do 10 miles cross town. 4,000+ miles cross country seems impossible.

If any other blogathoners respond to these questions from their blog, with a link back to Planetmike.com, I’ll donate something to their charities.

  2. Hi Spencer, Thanks for the link to your web site. I’m reading through the articles now. How much money did you end up raising? And how much did the trip cost each of you?
