Share Your World – 3/18/19

Sitting here, watching the snow melt, dog treats in the oven, seems like a good time to play with Melanie and share some more of my world.

Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures? I’m sure I do. But if guilty pleasures are those that are kept secret, I can’t think of a one. Maybe sometimes, that one extra glass of wine in the evening.

What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard?  OMG! It’s been so darn long since anyone has used a pick up line on me, how could I possibly remember? I’m quite happy not having to deal with that anymore. One of the nicest things that’s been said to me in a while though was when a clerk at Dollar General requested my ID because I was buying wine. I thanked him.

            For the guys: What’s The Worst Pick Up Line You’ve Used?

What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old? I think the jogging trend, the young, lithe women in leggings and tight tops with absolutely not a tiny bit of cellulite – or a saggy muscle – they make me feel old. And jealous. I never looked that toned.

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song? Hmm. Probably any song sung by Janis Joplin – or, for that matter, The Rolling Stones. I don’t like the raucous, loud rock stuff. Old ears.

Instead of a Tender Mercies question, here’s a philosophical one instead:

You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come? I think not. If it had an ending I did not like I would continually stress over it, probably bringing my real ending on much more quickly than it might have been. Besides, if I could not change any coming events, I’d be giving up all control, wouldn’t I? That’s not something I do well.

The Purple Finches are visiting my feeders, and this morning i also saw a Lesser Goldfinch. Signs of Spring! Hallelujah!

    My definition of “guilty pleasure” is doing something I enjoy that probably is not something I should be doing to begin with! The show “Outlander” on Starz is my guilty pleasure…along with dark chocolate and red wine….better yet, combine all of them together! Oh, Yes!! I can feel old just looking in the mirror. That last question is such a philosophical dilemma. One one hand, if I didn’t like the next scene I might stress over it and forget to enjoy the good things in life. On the other hand, I’ve matured in my thinking in such a way that I now look at bad scenarios differently and ask what I’m to learn from them. On the other hand…….I think I might just yell PLOT TWIST and roll on. 🙂 xoxox

  3. Wow! Congratulations on the lovely birds! I take it Spring is on its way!! I have crocus (one shoot) and a lot of grape hyacinth (if the damn yard people don’t cut ’em off again) popping up. I need to buy some bulbs and get them planted so that next year I have flowers. Thanks Carol, for a cheery Share Your World! 🙂

    I felt old the other day when a young one said something about tea. Not the beverage, but tea as in gossip. I didn’t know this modern slang usage and [here’s the old part] I didn’t care that I didn’t know it. 🤷‍♀️

  5. Carol — I don’t like raucous, loud rock stuff either.

    The department secretary of my grad school, told me in the 1990s that she belonged to the generation where gay meant happy and that made her feel old.
    In that way, I feel ancient when I hear people use “like” as a speech filler. It not only makes me livid, but also weary.

    Purple finches?!? I’m happy to get a yellow/green one once in awhile!
    Agree on Janis Joplin. But my answer would be “Freebird” and “Stairway to Heaven”.
    Worst pickup line used on me: “you have really great tits.” I turned around and walked out of the bar.
    Trend that makes me feel old: People becoming famous just for being visible… “social influencers”… snapchat & Instagram.
