Share Your World – 4/2/19

I’m home again, after spending ten days in northern Oregon with my daughter for her spring break. I’m home and doing the usual – avoiding things like folding laundry and putting it away, emptying the dishwasher – the things the elves never seem to come and take care of, so to further said avoidance, I’ve decided to Share my World (more of it) with Melanie and all of you.

Rhetorical Questions, but feel free to answer if you’d like:

Why is it called “beauty sleep” when one wakes up looking like a troll?? Well now, here, speak for yourself! A troll, I am not. And I have this bridge. . . And sleeping has never really made me a beauty, so I cannot answer that.

Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections? I have wondered that very same thing.  It’s not like bacteria or germs is going to do any further damage.

Why do most cars have speedometers that go up to at least 130 when you legally can’t go that fast on any road? It’s like much else in life – just a teaser. “So you think you can drive 130mph, buy this car!”

Did they purposely make dyslexia hard to spell? Yes. Because the person who created that term thought they were saying lexiadys.

(Rather naughty):  If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests? Testy. Like me, before coffee in the morning.

Odd but a bit philosophical or personal:

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally but definitely not okay to do every day? Go shopping. Clean house. Cook meals. I could go on.

What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever worn? Bobby Sox with the tops of old pairs of Bobby Sox rolled up inside so the roll at the ankle would be fatter. With white bucks. We thought we were so – something.

In your opinion, what’s the best type of cheese? Umm, must I choose? If it’s cheese, I like it.

What are some fun ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”? How’s it going – slowly. Too fast. It’s not, it hit a speed bump and stalled.

What do you do? Nothing. Mostly. Nothing.


Have you ever sent a text message to the wrong person?   Details please. I think I have, but I honestly do not remember the details. It must not have been very embarrassing.

If you could make a rule for a day, and everyone had to follow it, what would it be? Smile and be nice.

You are about to get in a fight, what song comes on your mind soundtrack? If I’m about to get in a physical fight, there is no song – but there is expeditious departure happening. If it’s an argument, there still is no song.

Share a joke, if you know a good one! Ha! Like I could remember a whole joke – sometimes I remember a punch line, but even that is not happening now.

  1. Carol — “Smile and be nice” shouldn’t be a rule. It should be the law!

  2. Oregon sounds lovely! (in general I like it very much up there, but at this time of year it’d be less humid?) Thanks Carol for Sharing Your World and I’m glad to be of help in the putting off of unnecessary, only need doing occasionally, tasks! 🙂

      I live on the east side of the Cascades, right near their base, and it’s very dry here. I haven’t noticed a lot of humidity at the coast, however – at least not enough to make me uncomfortable, but I suppose that’s because it doesn’t get very hot there. Portland can be quite warm sometimes.

    I didn’t know that was how Bobby Soxers got their Bobby Sox to be so fat around their ankles. The things I learn here. I bet you were too cool for school!

    Testy. Like me, before coffee in the morning. Perhaps that’s because you didn’t get your “beauty sleep”! 🙂 This was entertaining to read. I like your rule for the day. Can we make it for a year? xoxo

  6. Rule for the day: A ‘do over’ of the 2016 election and everyone has to vote, and all votes counted.

    I am right there with you on the no-joke-remembering thing. And the procrastination thing. And the clean house occasionally thing. So much of the wisdom here. 😉
