Wednesday Weirdness #7

This is Wednesday Weirdness for this week. If you want to grab the questions for yourself, or check out the other players then just click HERE. It's a lot of fun.

1.) Do you have anything planned for your father for Father's Day? If so, what?
No plans for this one as Father's Day doesn't occur in Australia until September. Even then, I don't have to do any planning as both my father and my father-in-law have passed away so it is just the kids spoiling me, hopefully.

2.) If you could visit anywhere in the world with all your expenses paid for each trip, where would you go?
I would have to say New York. I has always been a dream of mine to see the Big Apple. I have been to the Sates several times but mostly to the West Coast with Chicago being the furthest East I have been. Normally I would have said Peru to see Macchu Pichu but I will be doing that later this year so I will go with NY although there are so many other places I would love to see.

3.) What are a few things you have done that you previously said you would never do?
Cheat on my wife. I thought I could never do that, but now the cork is out of the bottle there is no going back.

4.) How do you react to the bodily functions (passing gas, burping, etc) of your significant other?
Not well. Mrs A. doesn't break wind very often, but you don't want to be nearby when she does.

5.) What are you allergic to?
Many things. Sticking plaster (band-aids, Elastoplast, etc) bring me up in huge, red, rash-like welts that take weeks to calm down. Pine tree sap, or anything made from raw pine has a similar effect. Also, certain types of plants and grasses can cause itchy rashes on my skin. These days I pretty much know what to avoid and what is safe to touch.

6.) If you could go back in time and meet any passed historical figure, who would you choose and why?
I reckon it would be awesome to have met John Lennon. (Does he count as an historical figure?) His views on world peace and global unity seem more significant to me today than they did when he was alive. Maybe I am just older and can appreciate them more? If he isn't considered historical enough then I would opt for one of the great sea explorers like Columbus, Magellan, Cook, or Drake. I would love to know how they felt about sailing off into the unknown in search of new continents or sea routes.

7.) Honestly, how often do you check up on any of your exes?
I don't know where any of my exes are. There are a few that come to mind that I wouldn't mind checking up on but past attempts to track them down haven't amounted to much. I wouldn't stalk them or anything, just curious to see how they are going and what they are up to these days.

I loved all of your answers! I seem to say that a lot here, lol. John Lennon would have been way cool to meet. Magellan would have been too. Great answers. ;) Happy Wednesday!
