Share Your World for August 3, 2020

It’s that time again! Melanie has the questions and the rules, and I have the answers (mine, anyway). And away we go!

What will finally break the Internet? Do you believe it can be broken at all? Social media, Google, and porn. I’m certain that, given enough time and inclination, it’ll happen one of these days.

What are some ‘red flags’ to watch out for in daily life? (take it as you want) If people stop talking when you come into a room, they were probably talking about you.

What’s the silliest thing someone has argued with you about? I think I mentioned that my brother and I argued over the spelling of a baseball player’s name. It’s a brothers thing, you wouldn’t understand…

What’s the strangest thing you’ve found lying on the ground / side of the road? One shoe. No mate.

Right now, I’m happy I went upstairs from the living room early, because I’m really getting tired and climbing the stairs is enough trouble when I’m reasonably awake. I’m off to bed. See you in the funny papers!

  1. Thanks John for Sharing Your World! One shoe in search of sock? 😆 I see bits of clothing sometimes, flung in a heap in the middle of the road and I wonder why someone would throw away perfectly good clothing like that. Maybe they got overly heated or something? I hope the internet never fails. For many of us it’s the last bastion of normalcy left. BUT. I got along for a good portion of my life without it, so maybe I could re-adapt? I’d sure get a lot more done. Lauren of Issattitudeofgratitude has shared the silliest thing for an argument (which led to a divorce apparently)…the placement of where a dresser ought to go on a wall. O_o SOMEONE was touchy about it… 😛 Have a fabulous week John and I hope you made it up the stairs safely!


    1. Maybe they were taking it to or from the laundromat and it flew out of the car, or maybe it got thrown out during an argument.

      There are days when I wish the Internet would disappear and we could go back to wishing we had something like it, but it’s so damn useful. Now, social media is a different story. There’s a special place in hell for whoever came up with that idea…


  2. I am always curious when I see one shoe or one sock on the road. It’s eerie. We live on the second floor in an apartment, which is annoying only when we have groceries to bring up. We’ve seen many a condo we like but 2 story is not in the cards. As we get older, it’s a hassle.


    1. Sorry to ‘eavesdrop’ on your conversation with John, but those shoes flung over the power line that way? Are some sort of gang sign (in the area in which I used to live anyway). It’s sort of like a dog marking its territory. And about as sensible. I know a fellow who works for the power company and he says those shoes are a pain in the butt to retrieve too. And usually another pair is tossed up there as soon as they remove some.


      1. Hi Melanie, welcome nice to meet you. I have since read this. We see it here in the UK too. It does indeed mean the same. Thank you for telling me. I agree it is a stupid thing to do. Strange world we live in. Right can I offer you tea or coffee, make yourself at home 💜

      2. I’ve heard that before, that it was a gang thing. I haven’t seen it too often, but then a lot of overhead cables are now buried. There are still some near me, though, but too high for the young’uns to throw shoes at. Plus, my area is decidedly suburban, so you aren’t likely to see anything like that… Thanks for giving an answer; I knew I had heard something about that.
