Share Your World – Q & A 

https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2021/09/20/share-your-world-squirrelly-style-9-20-2021/

***

Happy Monday! Thanks, Melanie, for bringing us the SYW questions each week! To join in and see other entries, just click the above link.

These fun questions today was suggested by a fellow blogger. His blog is called Evil Squirrel’s Nest, and there are lots of great photos of squirrels, great music, and fun, outrageous posts! You should go see for yourself by clicking Evil Squirrel.

Now here are the questions:

If you were to be cast as part of a comedy double act, which part would you play…. the straight man or the funny one, and why?

I’d probably be the funny one. That’s because I most times don’t understand jokes, and am confused about a lot of things people are talking about, so I answer with statements that reflect that, which comes out being weird and funny, I blurt out things and get my words tangled up – but not on purpose. Oh, here’s who’d I’d compare myself to with well known personalities (not in the way I look, obviously!) … Gracie Allen (wife of George Burns), Chrissy (Three’s Company), and Dory (the fish from the movie “Finding Dory”) hahaha

***

If you were to be reincarnated on Earth as any non-living/inanimate object of your choosing, what would you come back as and why?

Oooh  I think I’d be a computer! I’d know everything there is to know, I could help people find information, entertain them, and when I get sick with a virus or a breakdown of some kind, people are frantic taking me to the computer doctor to get me fixed as soon as possible, because they can’t do without me! 🙂

***

We all know how dogs mark their territory.  How do you mark your territory?

I mark my territory anywhere I go with paper … books, notebooks, post-it notes, scraps of paper I’ve wrote on, decorative paper for scrap books, and napkins … I’m messy so need lots and lots of napkins! 🙂

***

If you were on a trivia show and had to correctly answer ten questions in one subject to win a million dollars (or whatever currency is used in your locale), what would you hope the category would be?

The paranormal! I’d like to give my answers about ghosts, UFOs, aliens, ESP, and anything strange and unusual.

***

In democratic societies, do you believe that the right to vote is merely a privilege or a duty for all citizens?  This should not be thought of as an “Americans only” question.  ANY ONE is welcome to answer.

I’d say it’s a privilege to be able to vote on anything. A person shouldn’t be forced to vote, or vote a certain way. You should have the choice to vote if you want to, and if you don’t want to, then so be it. That said, I mostly think voting is a farce. Maybe in the little local city elections a voter has some say in a matter, but in national elections, one vote by one person counts as nothing. It’s just to pacify the population. Whatever outcome happens, it’s already been decided by the ruling elite. (this is all just my opinion!)

Do you believe in soul-mates?  (my definition of ‘soul mate’ is the IDEAL partner romantically).  … There are probably some couples that are wonderfully in tune and in every way are right for each other. Many more have found that special someone at some time in their lives. As for a true ‘soul-mate’ that has been chosen for you from the great beyond by whomever, to be united as a destined pair and that both realize it at first glance, and they are cosmically drawn to each other from wherever in the world they are, well, I doubt this has ever happened. … Except … it sure works great in books and fiction stories, doesn’t it! 🙂

What are three scents you like? … I like so many scents but to pick only three … Angel perfume, wood smoke, fresh baking bread.

What are some things that you might be considered too old to do, but that you enjoy? … Playing any kind of game with my grand-daughter, especially having pretend conversations and acting out stories and scenes with her little people toys and stuffed animals, making up silly voices for them all.

What is one food you absolutely refuse to share? … There isn’t any food I wouldn’t share. If someone wanted a bite of my food, I’d cut off a piece, or break some off for them. This reminds me of an episode of ‘Friends’ — Joey doesn’t share food!!! haha 🙂

Thanks for the questions, Melanie! 🙂

***

Can you parallel park (if you drive)?   If you don’t drive, can you still skip?

I used to could parallel park with no trouble. I haven’t tried it in years though, but I know how to do it and probably could do okay. Same with skipping – I used to could, but I’d probably fall down now.

Do you prefer early morning or late evening?  Or something in between?

I like early morning, before dawn. I like to see the sun rise in the hushed coolness of the day.

Do you like avocados?

I sure do like avocados – just plain or made into guacamole.

Is mind or matter more real?

Well, I would say matter is more real, as it right there in front of you, whether you see, feel, smell, or taste it. Your mind is your thinking of such things, and provides you with imagination.

and a bonus ‘deep’ question just because

Are people in this current generation less or more sensitive than people from past generations?

I think people of past generations were more truly sensitive about things. Currently it seems people are just acting sensitive about all kinds of things, because it’s the PC way to look at things, want to fit in with group think about whatever is the most recent topic of conversation.  Mostly, in my opinion, they are faking it, a false sense of outrage about even the most minute things. But then what do I know? I don’t even like being around other people most of the time.

  1. If you could be anywhere else right now, where would it be? … Right now I’d wish I could be up in Kansas City Missouri with my daughter & family. She just sent me some photos of their trip to the zoo today. Looked like a great day to be out seeing the animals. We did go to the KC zoo with them one year when we were visiting, and we sure enjoyed it.
  2. What Wastes The Most Time In Your Day To Day Life? … Everything I do is a time waster, because that’s an every day thing to do around here. We do whatever we want to all day long. And still it seems we don’t have enough time to do other things we’d like to.
  3. How would you describe your greatest enemy?  If you don’t have one, share your secret! 🙂 … As for people enemies I don’t think I have any of those. I don’t go anywhere or interact with real people much, so hopefully no one considers me an enemy either. Otherwise I’d say those nasty houseflies are my enemy. I can’t stand them buzzing around – so annoying.
  4. If you were a bird, what kind of bird would you be? … I like all kinds of birds so it’s hard to choose one. I’ve never really thought about it, other than thinking it would be fun to be able to fly. I wouldn’t want to be a caged bird, though. Maybe a Rainbow Lorikeet, as they are cute, colorful and friendly.

What’s the worst commercial you’ve recently seen (or heard)? Why was it so bad? … I hate most all commercials, and there are way too many of them and they run too long. Any that show poor animals or people I have to shut off. Any exercise equipment ones, and any medical ones – ugh! Also any laughing puppets or talking products.

What takes a lot of time but is totally worth it? … Blogging takes a lot of time, but for me it’s worth it.

Have you ever smiled at a stranger and then wished you hadn’t? Why or why not? … I don’t think so. A smile usually gets a smile back.

What do you think is the nastiest tasting food?  (This one might be a recycled question.  It’s familiar to me anyhow) … I don’t like much fishy foods, but there are some that are okay. I’d say any meat that is not cooked very well done – burnt is best. Oh, and applesauce is horrible. I like apples, but never smushed up ones.

What inanimate object do you wish you could eliminate from existence? … I guess this is supposed to be some object that doesn’t move? Right off I can’t think of a thing. Oh wait … any and any type of gun.

What tells you the most about a person? … How a person acts, and especially how they treat or speak about animals.

What is something you thought would be easy until you tried it? … Maybe playing the guitar. I know how to play my violin, but the guitar neck is way larger around than the violin’s, and I can’t hardly get my hand around it to reach the strings.

What ridiculous and untrue, yet slightly plausible, theories can you come up with for the cause of common ailments like headaches or cavities? … I’ve answered this question before, but can’t remember what I said, so … my theory for both of these is the use of microwave ovens. Who really knows what it is zapping into your food. Leakage of these unknown elements could certainly give someone a headache, and also cause your teeth to rot with cavities.

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole?  (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.) … I’d not want to be either of these. How about just nice and happy! 🙂

 

Have you ever made someone cry? … Not that I know of, except for laughing so hard they cried at something goofy I said or did.

 

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter? … Definitely a dreamer. It takes a lot of dreaming and thinking about things before I ever get up and go to it.

 

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play? … This would be an electric bass guitar. I had one one time, with very good intentions of doing just this. Didn’t work out, so I sold my guitar to a guy who actually did play it in a band.

Which would you rather throw away: Love or Money?  …I wouldn’t want to throw away either of these.

Do you believe you should do one thing a day that scares you? … Only if you are the adventurous type.

What’s the last thing you do at night? … Read a book until I fall asleep, then turn out the light and turn on my white noise machine tuned to ocean waves.

If you could own a mythical creature (unicorn, phoenix, etc.), which one would you pick? (A nod to the soon ending 2021 A-Z Blogging Challenge, my topic this year “Mythical Creatures”) 

I would have the creature known as Bastet. This is an Egyptian cat goddess who was known for her protection over all cats and for watching over the household.

From a Wiki article:

Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women’s secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children.

Here’s my Bastet cat necklace. It’s silver and sky blue with Egyptian decor engraved on it. My daughter bought it for me in Las Vegas at the Luxor Hotel.

What was the last TV show you binge-watched?   If you don’t watch TV (congratulations by the way) what’s the last thing you binged ON?

I don’t know if you’d call it bingeing or not, as we just have the regular cable type stations and whatever and however many episodes they put on is what we watch until they stop. There are a few old ones like Friends, 3s Company, Andy Griffith, & Everybody Loves Raymond that we watch like this. We don’t watch anything new.

What’s your most prized possession and why?

Well, the usual like family, health, and home of course. Then there’s things like phone, computer, & TV. I’m thinking this question is asking for a certain one item? ummm … yeah … I have lots of ‘stuff’ and I can’t think of any that is more prized over another. Sure I have many things from my relatives that have passed on, which I treasure because it brings back good memories. Knick-Knacks, dishes, furniture, cards & letters, photos … can’t pick just one thing.

If you had the time and inclination, what would you volunteer for?

Petting cats

Do you think that humans will ever be able to live together in harmony?

No

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time? … Well, if it was something I didn’t want even one of then it would be terrible if I had to take two of them. Could be whatever I didn’t want two of would be something someone else would love to have. So, I don’t know. Maybe a container of worms?

Have you ever gotten a really bad haircut?  Do share! … Yes, many times, and that’s why I never get my hair cut any more. The worst was twice, at two different places years apart, I just wanted a trim of the ends, and came away with my hair so short I had to buy a wig to cover up the awfulness until my hair grew again.

Isn’t Disney Land and Disney World (and all the variants) just a people trap operated by a mouse? … haha That’s so funny and I can see it being true. I’ve never been or even wanted to go to these places.

What if Batman got bitten by a vampire?   What would happen?  He’d turn into a vampire bat?

What do you want your final words to be if you could choose? … “I’ll be back…”
