I have over 10,000 ____ (select the correct answer)

Choose (only one) from the following possible answers to the question "I have over 10,000 _______":
  1. cells in my body
  2. cents in my IRA account (thanks USA Gov't)
  3. bites on my body from my stay in Salinas
  4. dogs in my neighborhood that bark incessantly
  5. idiots living in the city who don't know how to use their car alarm
  6. taxi drivers in the city who obviously don't know what the lines on the streets (or highway) mean
  7. views of my blogs
  8. salty sea shells from the seashore south of Salinas
  9. dog and cat hairs stuck in my cars' upholstery
  10. shares of Bank of America stock, now worth almost nothing
....and the answer IS!!!
  1. I would be dead
  2. Pretty darn close given the recent plummeting and general downward spiral of the economy in the USA
  3. I would be dead.    No, really, I only have about 30.  ONLY!!!
  4. Dog-gone close!  But, since they're all running around in the streets and everywhere else, who can count them when they won't hold still!
  5. Again, hard to count.  But, my guess is....waaaay more.
  6. I honestly think they know what the lines mean.   You're supposed to straddle them, right?
  7. If you selected this as your answer, you done good.  Congratulations!!
  8. Nope.  They're all from NORTH of Salinas.
  9. Sorry, I just don't have time to count them all.  But, I'm bettin by the time I get back to Cuenca carrying my 3 kids in the car, I will have 20,000+ and only 4,829 will come out with the vacuum.
  10. What kind of a dumbass do you think I am?  Why would I hold stock of a company who's responsible for outsourcing thousands of USA jobs to other countries, thereby contributing to the demise of our economy???   HMMMM????

About Me

My photo
Palma, Mallorca, Spain
This is all about my transition from an American lifestyle and culture to my newest adventure, life in Spain, in the city of Palma on the island of Mallorca in the middle of the Mediterranean sea!! I moved from the USA to Cuenca, Ecuador, South America and lived there for 7 years before moving here to Spain in early 2018. To read about my adventures in Ecuador, check out my other blog "Ahhh Cuenca!!". I'll be recapping some of my day-to-day experiences (and mishaps) to highlight what it's like to live in Europe....across the pond.
