E.M.’s Sunday Ramble- 5-1-22

This week’s topic is:

“Random Questions to Trigger Imagination”

Here are the questions:

  1. If people get a purple heart for being wounded in war, what do the other colors of hearts mean? (Make up your own heart meanings and colors.)
  2. If you were given $5 Million to open a small museum, what kind of museum would you create?
  3. if you could build a themed hotel, what would the theme be and what would it look like?
  4. What would the adult version of an ice cream truck sell, look like, and play for its song?
  5. What animal would be the cutest if it was down-sized to the size of a cat?
  1. A yellow heart is given to people who are pure ‘sunshine’.
    A blue heart is given to people who love winter and brighten it with cheerfulness for those who don’t.
    A pink heart is given to people who are especially shy and humble… and oft overlooked. {They’d be mailed to them. 😉 }
    A red heart is for people who opt to adopt adult pets from shelters. (A gold star is added when the pet is a senior.) It takes a special person to do this.
    A green heart is reserved for people who are extra generous with their time and money in the realm of mentoring children.

    2. My museum would be a place for all local children to display their artwork. Children are marvelous natural artists and I’d make sure that they were encouraged and praised for using those gifts.
    [At my day care, we once put on an art show in my front yard. The kids dressed up and parents and grandparents came to appreciate our gallery. We played classical music on a radio to create a professional ambiance. Wine and cheese were served to the adults and each artist had a bio with their photo beside their creations. WHAT FUN WE HAD!]

    3. My themed hotel would be a retreat for people who love to read. I’d offer affordable weekly rates. All the hallways would be lined with books and special titles could be ordered or chosen from an expansive basement library.
    Some of the rooms would be decorated for specific genres. Cubbies with pillows and desks would be in every room. Special cubbies would be available for kids with ceilings of the heavens and walls with holograms of forests and castles. No internet or TV would be available. Headphones and devices for audio books would be everywhere too. Kids would get special attention and have crafting opportunities too. Board games and art supplies would also be available with organized tournaments and instruction if they choose. A separate activity building would hold the busy children’s activities as ‘quiet’ would be highly valued in the main building.

    4. During the hot summer months, a fresh bakery truck would be wonderful. It’s too hot and time consuming to bake in the summer. Freshly baked bread and treats would be so nice!
    Its song would be Sugar, Sugar by the Archies.

    5. Definitely an elephant! They’re such special creatures. How cute they would be!


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. These are all such fun answers, Susan! I love the colors and the ideas of the hotel and museum! Reading books is so important for kids, and I don’t think they value books as we did back in our days. The elephant won the race for the cat-sized animal 🙂 All the floppy ears would be adorable in a mini stampede of them! Thanks for rambling with me, Susan!

Tell me something good...
