Monday means Share Your World brought to us by Melanie. Head over to her blog and check out links to other people’s answers or participate yourself. My allergies have decided that they’re not done with me so I’m kinda wiped today. Plus I had a bad week last week (read about it here) and I have some phone calls to make pertaining to that, which I’m trying to avoid. So this might be short, or long depending on my energy and whether I want to be a responsible adult or not. 🙂 I’m leaning towards the latter because I so don’t want to yell at people again. I totally don’t. It stresses me out. Anyway, on to the questions.
What inanimate object do you wish you could eliminate from existence? Nothing comes to mind. I read a book when I was a teenager that waxed philosophical about the dangers of “undoing” or “unmaking” something from existence, and that kind of stuck with me. I don’t mean to be trite, but I’m fairly sure that everything exists for a reason, even things that we don’t understand, or stuff we don’t want to exist. Hell, I hate dust, but it’s there and it’s got a raison d’être.
What tells you the most about a person? How they treat other people, even when it costs them nothing or gives them nothing in return. Also, how they treat other people under stress and duress. I’ve walked out on dates (when I was dating) due to how that person treated the waitstaff. I just don’t deal well with people who treat others poorly. It’s why I dislike yelling at people when I get frustrated and why I’m avoiding phone calls at the moment.
What is something you thought would be easy until you tried it? A long time ago, I saw a cowboy whittling a chain out of wood. He made it look way easy. I was probably about 11 at the time. So I picked up a knife and a stick. It wasn’t easy. Ha!
What ridiculous and untrue, yet slightly plausible, theories can you come up with for the cause of common ailments like headaches or cavities?
GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)
What are you grateful for since they ‘cured’ COVID? (yeah, I realize it’s not cured. But at least the vaccine is available and restrictions have eased up in many places. If that’s a good thing or not remains to be seen I suppose). Now that he’s inoculated for the plague, Doug will finally go to the doctor and get his back looked at. He hasn’t felt “comfortable” going before. And he’ll go to the eye doctor and get his stupid eyes looked at and finally get a new pair of glasses. He’s been walking around with duct taped glasses for months now and it’s been driving me up the wall.
