Sharing My World 6/5/17

laughcryWhat’s your strongest sense? I have a good sense of humor.  I tell people all the time that I kinda need it because if I’m not laughing, I’d be in tears.  I know that’s true for a lot of people, and it’s not that I’m trying to “hide” my pain through false smiles. I truly find it, just… funny sometimes how much the world thinks I can handle.  The hubster is the same, he just busts out every once in awhile at the absurdity of the world because if we didn’t, we’d be overwhelmed by how… absurd the world is.  I guess it’s just our way of dealing with it, through our sense of humor. As for the the other “five senses”  I dunno which one is the strongest. I’ve never really tried testing to see. I know my sense of taste is going, and with the tinnitus my sense of hearing ain’t what it used to be. Since I have this chronic sinus infection I can’t smell like I used to. The fibromyalgia makes my sense of touch all kinds of fun, fun, fun.  And I’ve worn glasses since I can’t even recall when, so my sense of sight has been off for a good, long time.  I’ve had pretty much the same prescription forever, but my close up sight is “improving” as it does with age… just before it gets worse… so I’m told. 

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) So… according to this quiz, I’m Happy.  But according to this one, I’m Bashful. I’ve taken a lot of these quizzes over the years and they all tell me something different.  It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Snow White so I don’t honestly remember the Seven Dwarves. Besides, I understand that dwarfs are very upsetting (singing to follow):

good for my ageIf you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be? My mind thinks that I’m 25, so I guess that would be a good age to be for a while. I’ve thought about this before though, and I think that I’d rather get older as I go along. I mean, I honestly believe that it would be boring to stay the same age forever. I suppose if my mind gets older and wiser while my body stays the same age, that would be good, but to be perpetually 25 mentally and physically, yeah, that would be… I dunno. I don’t think I’d like that at all. Even if I only live to be the average 80 or 90 years we’re allotted on this Earth of ours. I guess it would depend too, on if I didn’t know I was stuck in the same age until I died. Like blissfully unaware of my situation. Then maybe that would be okay.  Think about it though, to be 25 while everyone around you is getting older… that would kinda suck.  Maybe I’m overthinking this. I often do when it comes to these kinds of things.

comics-video-games-work-boss-478303List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.  [Remember:  This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.]  When I was younger and wrote a lot, I thought that if I had all of the time in the world, I would write, and do nothing but write. Now that I have all the time in the world because I’m disabled — so yeah, no career change going on here —  I don’t do much of anything.  I do some creative things, but most of the time I get drawn into time sucks and the days just pass me by with little to nothing done to “show” for it.  I’m not sorry. I don’t feel the need to produce anything anymore. Not most days. I did my time. Now my body is actively working against me and I’m done trying to fight it.  To answer the question, If I could work, I would teach English as a Foreign Language to adults.  Ideally, I’d have my own school so I didn’t have to worry about internal politics that comes with working at colleges and universities. Barring that, I would open my own store and sell things.

    Life really IS absurd and if we didn’t find ourselves and our lives absurd, we would spend all our time wailing and crying. I know people like that. Wailing and crying gets boring. I get bored by my OWN wailing and crying.

    Pretty much everyone wants their older brain but a younger body. It turns out, being older has a lot going for it if it weren’t for all that nasty physical stuff!

    I did the little quizzes from the links you provided for Snow White’s dwarves….I’m Sleepy apparently. In both of ’em. Well that’s probably an improvement over Grumpy, who I identify with most strongly. Hahahah! 😉
