Friday Five - Usefulness
Friday, July 24
What’s something in your possession that has long outlived its usefulness?
Well, the T-shirt I am currently wearing. Stone calls it my holy shirt because of all of the holes in it. I must say that is well ventilated. But I am not ready to give up on its comfort.
Who in your life has proven to be a very useful person to know?
Clark Stone. He is the one who knows where he hid the chocolate and onions. He also controls the keys to the freezer where the ice cream rests. My fellow Varnark and I are learning to pick that lock.
For group projects requiring collaborative planning and then collaborative execution, in what capacity are you most useful?
Gadgets and devices. I have the ability to modify some of the human toys so that we can use them to monitor the activities of the Ygians.
What’s something someone gave you that you didn’t think much of but later became surprisingly useful?
A magnifying glass. I did not know what it could be used for. Then I discovered it allowed me to see inside the lock that Stone has on his freezer. We managed to pick the lock but Stone walked in just as we got the lock open. Our bad timing worked against us.
What is the most useful book in your house?
The dictionary, two encyclopedias and a chocolate cookbook. They give us just enough height to get into the cabinet that Stone hides the chocolate cookies.
