Time once again for Share Your World! Melanie has picked a few questions for our answering enjoyment. And here we go!
Where do you get your news? From the Internet. Doesn’t everyone these days?
What ‘old person’ thing do you do? Rather than going out for dinner, we go out for lunch.
When was the coldest you’ve ever been? Back in 1982, it was -40° whether you’re talking Fahrenheit or centigrade/Celsius, with a windchill of -125°F/-87°C on one Sunday in January, and I had to go to work. The warmest? The first summer we lived in our house, our air conditioning went out and we couldn’t afford to have it fixed. We figured that 90°F/32°C was the same whether we were in Chicago or Atlanta. Trust me, it’s not. Chicago has Lake Michigan to cool it off (even a little), while Atlanta is in the Chattahoochee River basin, and all that humidity just sort of hangs there and makes things hotter. Plus we were in a drought. It was miserable. We finally bought a small window air conditioner so we could get some sleep.
Do you eat food that’s past its expiration date if it still smells and looks fine? We do, and never gotten sick from it. We do have a rule, though: If the package is bulgin’, we won’t be indulgin’.
