Question of the Week: June 30, 2008
Hosted by Lorena of Snarkland

Lorena say..."Thanks to HBO, Tim and I have been watching a lot of Carlin this week. At one point in a routine (about sports) Tim pauses it and says, “my old college roommate used to do this routine! I didn’t know it was Carlin!” and then later when Carlin is talking about language and words and how you can’t say all this and that, I’m laughing and saying, “I can’t believe I was allowed to watch this when I was eight years old!” (kidding; I can believe it-- my family was all about language, self-education, and the power of words).

My point is this: we were raised completely differently. And yet, we have a lot of the same fundamental ideas in common. He was raised by Catholics, and I was raised in the wild by hippies. Yet we have a great relationship.

So my question is this: is there someone in your life that you are close to—doesn’t have to necessarily be a spouse or a Significant Other; it can be a close friend or a long-lost sibling separated-at-birth. But while they may have been raised completely differently than how you were raised, you still have much in common and have a great relationship with"

Shannon's Response: One of my best friends, Nancy and I were raised differently yet we seem to have a lot in common and we have a great relationship. She is my daughter's Godmother and an awesome friend. Nancy has stood by my side through the good and the bad and is always there for me to lean on. I have cried on her shoulders many times throughout our life and she is one hell of a lady!
