Ask The Plastic Mancunian

I have decided to write a dangerous and experimental post.

I want you, dear reader, to ask me any question (courtesy of a comment) and I will do my best to answer it in my next post.

Think of it as a living meme – though I would rather you didn’t ask me a meme-style question like “What’s your favourite colour?”

This idea is being shamelessly stolen from fellow Manchester blogger Mind of Mine who did something similar (by the way MoM, if you are reading this I wasn’t at all offended by your answer to my question). Other bloggers have done the same.

Your first question might be “Why is that a dangerous thing to do?”

Here's why ...

(1) You might think “Why on earth would I want to ask you anything at all you stupid arse?” and totally ignore the post.

(2) You might actually know me and ask me a deeply personal question, the answer to which may come back to haunt me for years to come.

(3) You might be a troll and hurl all manner of nasty abuse from behind the safety of your anonymous fa├žade.

(4) I may offend you with the answer.

Deep down, I hope I don’t get any questions – that way I don’t have to answer any questions. I shall simply consider it a failed experiment and move on.

If you do know me, and post anonymously, I shall probably work out who you are from the nature of the question – so be warned – I have embarrassing stories about most people I know.

If you are a troll, then your question will be ignored – though I may make an example of you.

If I offend you with my answer, I apologise in advance.

Apart from that, I shall try to answer truthfully and honestly in my next post, providing I get enough interesting questions.

Of course, if I don’t get ANY questions I will seek solace in a pint of beer and thank my lucky stars that the experiment failed miserably.

It's up to you, dear reader ...

What a fascinating and brave post idea. Bad luck, though, the solace of the beer will have to wait. My question is esssentially double barrelled. What is the most risky thing you have done, and was it worth it?
Says the risk averse woman.

If you knew then what you know now, would you still do it the way you did it?

Here's two that have always puzzled me:
1) Why do men have breasts; and
2) Why don't chickens have lips?

Work your magic, Plasman :)

Thank you for the shout out!

My question is probably the sort of questions you hate.

But what is the worst thing you have ever done?

Thought I should add "How" and "Can" questions since I have used the other "question words":

How to make the best egg and bacon breakfast?

Can you avoid mid-life crisis?
