So?what is the Monday Poll"
Well, it isn?t exactly a poll. It?s more of a constantly evolving (devolving"), somewhat random list of questions I?ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past 10 (!) years. (It?s like a kickstart for your brain.) I?ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
1. The first thing I did after I woke up this morning was?
Damn my alarm to hell and stay in bed for 10 more minutes, LOL! I really, REALLY didn?t want to get out of my comfy bed this morning, but c?est la vie. I had to.

She got up a few times last night, so I?m kinda tired today.
It doesn?t really bother me though. Everything?s temporary, and someday I?m sure I?ll look back and really miss this time.
2. Someone in your life who always laughs at your jokes"
I?m pretty sure I?ve asked this question before, so if I have, sorry! It just occurred to me again.
My answer has gotta be my brother. We have a very similarly weird sense of humor, and I always know that if I throw a random observation or joke his way, he?ll totally get it. Always does.
El Hub always gets my jokes, too, as do my friends Jen and Cindy.
I like to think that Tabs gets my jokes, too, but he?s gotten much more official and serious in his senior tabby years.
3. Do you have any ?imperfections? (quote, unquote) that you love"
Oh, boy, I have so many to choose from if you put any stock in beauty magazines and big Instagram beauty accounts. Seriously, how dare a wo...
