Share Your World – June 25, 2018

 

It’s really June 27, 2018, but I know Cee won’t mind if I join the party a little late. My real world is quiet, which is how I like it, but sometimes the world of Cee adds a wee bit of adventure, like this week:

If aliens landed on earth tomorrow and offered to take you home with them, would you go? (remember this is SYW, they are friendly aliens) My first reaction was to say no, but then I thought, “what the heck – it’s an opportunity to travel and see something new”, so I think I would say yes – conditioned upon it being a round trip ticket. Because, furry girl, family, friends, you know.

How tall are you? Are you satisfied with your height?  Once upon a time, back in the day, I was 5’11”. Gravity has taken over, however, and I think now I am probably more like 5’8” or 5’9”. I hated my height when I was 12 – the year I had a major growth spurt – because I was always the tallest in my classes and it was the topic of many jokes. But when I got older, I appreciated the ability to reach higher shelves, and to see over a lot of heads.

Do you think you could live without your smartphone (or other technology item) for 24 hours? That seems cruel and inhuman treatment to me. Yes, I could do it if I absolutely had to, but considering my iPad and iPhone are my sources of information – news, recipes, bloggy friends, Facebook, etc. – contact with my son – texts – entertainment – silly games and my books, it would be difficult.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. I appreciated more time with my daughter, a lunch or two out, my furry girl and the antics of her furry kids (hers are feline, mine is canine, and they live in separate parts of the house – for the sake of relaxation and harmony). Have I showed you the separation door?

Slightly cagelike, but living conditions are very humane, and families have not been separated. When the furry felines and their mom move to their new home in August the door is easily removed and stored away.

    Go with aliens? No, I don’t think I could do that. I wouldn’t trust their promise of a return ticket. How tall? Well, 5′ 5″ and I always wanted two more inches… have thought 5’7″ would be perfect so that I could buy a regular sized pair of pants. Live without technology for 24 hours? I think I could, though I suppose I don’t really know until I try. I do take my phone with me when I camp, so I can’t say I’ve ever tried. Maybe I will this summer.

    I had the majority of my height by the time I was in the 5th grade. I can relate to being bullied and joked about. I think the “big” has effected my entire life and body image. Thanks Carol for sharing.

    I love that you re-thought your original reaction to the aliens and said “what the heck”. Shows flexibility and character!

    Do the felines and your furry girl ‘socialize’ through the door? I think that door is pretty darn ingenious, by the way!
