What song always gets you out on the dance floor? … I’ve done a little dancing back when I was a teen, but these days, I don’t except maybe a little in the house sometimes, and almost always to this song: “Whenever, Wherever”, by Shakira.

***

What’s your favorite sleeping position? … I sleep on my back, and have for many years. But … first I fall asleep sitting up in the recliner in the bedroom, then I go to bed, where I have tons of pillows including a large wedge one, so I can sleep mostly sitting up.

If you could snap your fingers and instantly make the world better, what would you do? … Take away all diseases and wars.

What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done, and why did you do it? … Survived the F5 tornado! I didn’t plan on being in that tornado, and I hope to never be again.

Q & A

In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to real magic?  … The closest thing to real magic could be when you are reading and you get so engrossed in the story you feel you are right there with them, whether it be fiction or non-fiction. Seems you travel with your mind to anywhere you think about – just like magic! This works when listening to songs, too, as you remember exactly where you were and what your were doing when you hear an old song.

Where is the worst smelling place you’ve been?  … This is a funny question, and I never really thought much about it. Sure there are lots of bad smells, such a our trash when it needs to be taken out, or when the bad smell of the livestock pens waft over the area, but a certain place? Well, I don’t know that this is the worst, but we used to have a video store we’d go to to rent movies. That place always smelled like B O!

What are some things that you’ve heard in your own life, which sounded like compliments but were actually insults? … Can’t really think of anything.

What incredibly common thing have you never done? … Probably anything to do with a sport. I can’t say I ‘never’ did them, because I was probably made to do them in gym class back in school, but I hated every one of them.

***

Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?  … No, never, but one time we’d been seated at this restaurant (a whole group of us), and had been given menus. When we saw the prices on the food, we all decided we couldn’t afford any of it, so didn’t order anything and got up and left.

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)? … Nope, not that I can remember. But one time there was this little old man who sideswiped my car. I got out, he got out and he started hollering at me that it was my fault (I was stopped at a light – he ran into me). I told him so, and if he didn’t back off I’d call the law on him. I got back in my car and took off and he was chasing me down the road. I finally pulled in at a beer store and called home. The guy didn’t follow me any more. Now this was a little old white haired man of probably my father or grandfather’s generation.

(Oldie which has been asked many times before)   Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers?   Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?  … Yes, I’ve found money laying on the street and kept it. A few times this has happened with no one else around, and no way to know who it belonged to – just cash – no wallet. The most was $50.

What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted?   If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret!   🙂 … I stole some tiny toys from a store when I was a kid. – it was some kind of little doll. I pocketed a cheap necklace once, too. That’s all I remember.

The Q & A:

What do you think of professional motivational speakers?  Do you think they motivate? … I don’t think much about these kinds of speakers. I don’t really listen to any, anyway, but I guess some people get all fired up listening to them. Mostly their speeches are too long and they act like they are the know all and be all of whatever they are talking about.

 Do you have a favorite flavor? … Oh, lots of favorite flavors – like cinnamon, vanilla, peppermint, and even cilantro, of course not all at the same time.

 

While out walking, you hear a rustling in some bushes.  What do you think of? … I’d probably think it was a cat, or a rattlesnake, but wish it would be an alien or a ghost!

 

What’s your ideal temperature (nature-wise)?   Hot, cold, temperate and mild, humid or bone dry? … I like hot and dry mostly, but a nice rainstorm is most welcome from time to time. Guess I live in a place I like – west TX where we can get up to 115 degrees with the sand blowing. If the temp gets below 90 I’m too cold and need a jacket!

How comfortable are you speaking in front of large groups of people?  … I would never have a reason to speak in front of a group, but it wouldn’t bother me at all. However, back in the day I know I’d be petrified!

What would be the best thing you could reasonably expect to find in a cave? … I would expect to find beautiful rock and limestone formations. I’ve seen some before and all you can say is ‘wow’!

What did you think was going to be amazing but turned out to be horrible? The one that comes to mind at the moment is the enchilada dinner I made years ago for my future son-in-law and daughter. The enchiladas exploded!

What’s the silliest thing you’ve observed someone get upset about? … There’s probably a lot of irritating and silly things we get upset about, but at the time we don’t think they are. Mostly it would be me having a hissy fit about whatever – like a fly buzzing around incessantly – drives me up the wall every time. I holler and yell and flap my arms and hands and flick paper or towels at the danged fly and I can’t make it stop or catch it. 🙂

The Q & A

Is it ever okay to commit a crime?  Please explain. … I’m thinking no, it’s never okay to commit a crime, but there are degrees of kinds of crimes. It would depend on what a situation was in the moment. Also, if you don’t get seen or caught doing a crime, is it one? Most would say yes, and surely your guilty conscious would say it was a crime you committed.

Do you deal with change well?  (not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did any how.  O_o  ) … No, I don’t deal with change very well. I like my routines, and get out of whack when something comes along to interfere with them.

Do you like birds?   The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food?   … I love birds. I like hearing them, watching them, taking pictures of them, and feeding them at the bird feeder.

What’s the least used item of clothing you own?  … Are shoes considered clothing in this case? I don’t like shoes much. I have some stuck back in the closet that I’ve worn maybe a time or two, but I only wear two different pairs ever.

Q & A

What’s something you really resent paying for?   … I know we have to pay our bills like electric and water, and any credit card amounts, but I sure hate seeing so much of our money going out.

 What was the most unsettling film you’ve seen? … Unsettling? Like scary, or just a boring one? I really can’t come up with a name of any. I love scary movies of all kinds, and if there is a boring movie part I have no problem falling asleep. haha

Do you judge people?  … I don’t think I judge people at all.

Finish this sentence:  “Back in my day, we…”?  … Back in my day, we kids were free to run all around the neighborhood with our friends, as much as we liked, just as long as we were home by dark.

The Questions & My Answers

  • I asked this on an award thingie I was nominated for, and I got such interesting responses, I thought I’d ask it on Share Your World too:  Do you have a favorite kind of tree?

I like all kinds of trees. I think the weeping willow tree is very pretty, and I like the smell of pine trees. The mimosa tree is really nice with it’s delicate pink flowers, too.

  • What bridges are you happy you burned?

Guess I’ve never burned a bridge. I don’t go setting fires around them. I do have some posts about bridges which I might re post again sometime or other. Bridges scare me!

  • Would you sacrifice yourself (die) for a stranger?

No, not normally, but if it was my family member I would.

  • How have your priorities changed since the C-19 virus took over?

Nothing much has changed with us because of the virus. The Mr. goes to the grocery store & uses a mask. I don’t go anywhere, which isn’t that unusual for me on a normal time. If I ever do go somewhere again, I will be leery of every place and every person.

What’s the creepiest tech out there?  (My interpretation of “tech” is app or program.  If you know what “tech” is supposed to mean, hey!  Great!   Educate us.  – I don’t really know of any, except a creepy one to look up on Google is about creepy dolls.

Here are the new questions for SYW for last week and this week. Thanks so much, Melanie!

***

On A Scale Of 1-10, How Strict Were Your Parents?

I would say a 5

What Wastes The Most Time In Your Day To Day Life?

I have all day to do whatever I want to do. I don’t consider it wasted, even if I’m just sitting & thinking.

Do They Bury People With Their Braces* On?   (* “braces” in this scenario are those metal bits they put on people to straighten their teeth.   I realize “braces” are also some item of clothing that I believe men wear to keep their socks up or something.  I’m talking about the teeth option).

What a weird question! I would suppose the surviving family would determine if the teeth braces should stay on or come off. Since most don’t really like having them on, I’d say take them off.

Why Does A Round Pizza Come In A Square Box?

It’s easier to stack the boxes on the shelves? Or maybe it’s easier to make a square box than a round one?

***

https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2020/03/30/share-your-world-03-30-2020/

Pancakes, waffles or French Toast as your breakfast favorite? 

I like each of these equally, but we don’t have them very often.

Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become?

Not really. You are what you are, and act how you act, whatever your name is. I’ve heard there have been studies that show some people with so called ‘good’ names get better jobs? Don’t know if that’s true. It’s interesting to think people’s last name may have began from what occupation they had, such as a baker becoming Baker, and so on.

Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?

It would be better if we heard more good news.

Is math something that humans created or something we discovered? Is looking at reality mathematically an accurate representation of how things work?

It was probably discovered that certain amounts of items added to some more items, made a larger number? I really don’t know and can barely even do basic math.
