Unofficially Sharing my world

Cee is on vacation, so Melanie is taking up the flag for her. Thanks, Melanie! Here are her questions for this week…

food is importantHave you ever been in a food fight?  My mom worked in a warehouse that hosted these company picnics every summer. They would grill meat like hot dogs, barbeque chicken, and hamburgers, and bring food like potato salad, chips, and other “barbeque” foods.  There would also be drink — both alcoholic for those that partook of such, and non alcoholic for everyone else — yeah, this kind of gathering totally wouldn’t be allowed today. ^_^  Anyway, mix alcohol, kids, summer fun… and eventually there’s gonna be some kind of shenanigans. One summer it was water fight, and one summer it was water and food. That’s the closest I’ve come to a food fight. The next summer, the wasting of food was “outlawed”. Ha!

How do you deliver bad news? Bluntly but kindly. There’s no use trying to soften up bad news because it’s going to be bad no matter what I say. But at least I try to be kind.

What (if anything) do you think is beyond the stars? As with anything, I’m agnostic about anything I know nothing about. Since we don’t know about what’s beyond the stars, then anything I say would be pure conjecture.

What “redneck” (unsophisticated) activity do you like to do?  Like Melanie, I’m all about sitting around in my undies (in my home) when I like to get comfortable.

Is there a scary scene from a movie (or book) you viewed a child that still haunts you?  My dad would watch this show called Kolchak: The Night Stalker when we were kids. There was an episode from that show where road equipment came alive and killed people.  Usually this happened on empty streets with no witnesses. And, as per usual, the police wouldn’t believe Kolchak when he tried to convince them it was the machinery that was killing people (because that’s insane, right?). Anyway, my memory is vague about the plot, but I remember the machines killing people. It was decades… decades, dear reader, before I could walk down a lonely street where a crane or other heavy equipment was parked.  I would totally turn around and go the other way. Nope, not even gonna go there. Not with the killer cranes parked there. Not gonna happen. Even now, I’ll get the heebie jeebies if I’m on a lonely street and there’s a crane parked there.

Last (rock trivia courtesy of Glyn), which true to form I won’t answer. I wanna see if anyone (besides Glyn) knows the answer: Seal’s ‘Kiss From A Rose’ was the theme from which film?

I actually didn’t know the answer to this question because I’m not a fan of the Batman movies. I had to look it up.  I do like the song though.

 

Thanks again Melanie for hosting the Share Your World questions. Y’all should totally visit Melanie at Sparks from a Combustible Mind. She’s got great views on a lot of things.

  1. The pig and the mouse have a great outlook on life. Live while you’re young, right?

    It’s incredible how small parts of your childhood can impact your adulthood. My adult siblings will not walk in front of a car because my dad would always honk the horn when they did in their youth. They will go the long way around a car to hop in the passenger’s seat rather than cross in front of any car, whether my dad is driving or not.

    • Pearls before Swine is an awesome comic and I often agree with them — not always, but often. 🙂

      Parents think they’re funny, but they’re not. I used to think it was funny to sneak up on my kids and startle them, but as adults, they made it quite clear that it wasn’t funny for them. Ah well, you can’t take back the past.
