So because I wasn’t actually on Facebook in the earlier part of this decade I missed out on doing all that fun stuff where your friends make you answer 95 questions and whatever, but sometimes, because I am a creep, I discover 2011-era challenges that seem kind of fun(ny) and then do them for myself because why not?
The one I discovered was one in which a bunch of questions are listed, and then you shuffle your iTunes (or Spotify, in my case) and use the song name which pops up as the answer to the question. Some of them turned out quite humorously. So here’s that list, just for the hell of it.
If someone says “are you okay” you say…
“Love Don’t Roam”
What would best describe your personality?

“A Lot Like Me” (ha!)
How do you feel today?
“It Don’t Bring You”
What is your life’s purpose?
“Teir Abhaile Riu” (which I think actually means something about finding men??) (after a Google, it means “Get yourself home!”)
What’s your motto?
“Mr. Smith and Joan”
What do your friends think of you?
“Down in Mary’s Land”

“Love Don’t Roam” (oddly insightful)

What do you want to be when you grow up?

“Song For Ten”
