Share Your World for July 20, 2020

It’s that time again! Melanie has the questions and the rules over at her place, in the event you’d like to play along. I and a few others have the answers here…

Where do you not mind waiting? The doctor’s or dentist’s office. Not that I especially mind being at the doctor’s or dentist’s office (I like them and the people who work for them). Honestly, I don’t mind waiting anywhere. I’m at a stage of my life where there’s nothing else going on.

What is in your fridge right now? A lot of leftovers and a couple of bottles of lemonade.

If you could only speak one word today, what would it be? “Crap.” Everything’s gone sideways on us today. The Internet was out most of the day, the refrigerator we were supposed to have delivered wasn’t because the truck broke down, and some work that we had done recently wasn’t done correctly. Like I said, crap…

Would you rather be trapped in an elevator full of men with B.O. or three soaked dogs? Three soaked dogs. They’d be more fun. Once Mary knitted a pair of mittens for her mother using good-quality yarn. A week later, her mother said “I washed those mittens you gave me, and now they smell like a wet dog. But that’s good!” Which is true.

Gratitude The baseball season, such as it is, starts Thursday!

See you in the funny papers!

  1. I’ve seen the adverts for MLB plastered all over my Prime Video feed. I’m glad for YOU, but like another commentor said “Meh. I’m not into sports. It ain’t all about ME either though, is it?” 😆 Thanks John for Sharing Your World and a lot of laughter. You’ve got a gift! Wet dogs? Are the number one answer this week!! Nobody (much) wants stinky men….

  2. I agree with you about what I’d rather be stuck in an elevator with. Watched our Giants beat the A’s last night. Yay!


  3. I hope your refrigerator woes and building work is resolved soon. I don’t like to wait for anything or anybody. I’d rather be stuck in an elevator with the wet dogs than men with B.O. Crap is a good word for today’s crap! Happy baseball season!


    1. The refrigerator was delivered today, but we have to wait until the electrician comes out to repair the outlet we had installed (at considerable expense) before we can use it. He evidently built the new line and put in the breaker and all that, but it isn’t working. Either he screwed up or something went wrong after he left.


    1. The refrigerator is in, but we can’t use it until the electrician comes out tomorrow and fixes the outlet they installed for it. We have 48 hours to call the store to replace the refrigerator if there’s a problem with it, which we won’t be able to check until the outlet works.


  4. I’m a fairly patient person most of the time, but I don’t like waiting. I consider my time valuable though I waste plenty of it. I’d just prefer to waste it the way I want to waste it.

  5. Love your answers. Mostly, we are in the same boat. I don’t mind waiting in the doctor’s office as long as I have my phone or IPad for entertainment and information. The fridge is filled with the usual suspects, milk, ground coffee and creamer, various jellies, fruits and veggies. We’re going on vacation soon, so the left overs are minimal. Fortunately I would choose the word rejoice…Today is the day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it. Definitely the three dogs. They will dry out and you can pet them. The men with B.O. will just get worse with time. And yes…Play ball!!!


    1. My doctor’s and dentist’s offices have public wi-fi, which is really great. It’s almost standard now. Even oil change places have it in thei waiting rooms.
