It’s Share Your World time again! Melanie has all new questions for me, and you, if you’d like to play along, or if you already play along. Rules and badges and stuff are all at Melanie’s. And now, here are today’s questions.
Is it ever okay to commit a crime? Please explain. If the law you would be breaking is unjust or violates your Constitutional rights (here in the US and other nations where a Constitution protects your individual rights), then by all means. The same holds true for regulations, which are like laws in that they were developed by the regulators and
rubber stamped approved by the legislature. There can be extenuating circumstances, of course.
Do you deal with change well? (not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did, anyhow.) First, I think we all know what “wit” she’s talking about. As to the question: No. For example, I received word recently that my A1C is as high as it can go without my being diabetic or pre-diabetic. So, I have to change my diet, and I don’t wanna. The reason I stayed for 20 years at a job I hated after five was because I didn’t want to write my resumé and didn’t want to give up the four weeks of vacation I was getting. I worked myself into a snit over the prayers at Mass changing however long ago that was. And I think enough has been said about the f***ing block editor.
Do you like birds? The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food? I do, as a matter of fact. I love crows (why? CAWS!) because they are very noisy and clever. We have a chicken hawk who lives in the trees behind our house and love to see him soaring overhead. As we live close to Sweat Mountain we see the occasional turkey buzzard. And, during the warm months, we see a lot of cardinals and blue jays. The state bird of Illinois is the cardinal, and I’ve seen more since I’ve been in Georgia than I ever saw when I lived in Chicago. We also have a lot of generic birds (or as I call them, “boodies”) that are occasionally pretty entertaining. There’s one bird that tries, every year, to build a nest under the roof of the front porch, and by the time it gets close to being done, the whole thing falls apart. My favorite “boodie” story: the pavement on one of the streets in our subdivision has a few holes in it, and one afternoon, after we had had a downpour, Mary and I drove in and found a little boodie bathing in it. Cutest thing I’ve ever seen…
What’s the least used item of clothing you own? I have a very nice gray suit that I bought when I left the 20-year job so I could interview. I think I’ve worn it a total of four times and doubt seriously that I’ll ever wear it again. It’s the perfect suit to be buried in, except I’m going to be cremated.
See you in the funny papers!
