Share You World for January 4, 2021

It’s that time again! Time for another edition of Share Your World! Melanie has the rules, questions, badges (see? I’m using a new one today), and the pingbacks for everyone else doing this today, so link over to her site and have fun! And now…

What’s a relationship deal breaker for you? Unfaithfulness. It’s all I can think of.

Do you believe in extra-terrestrials? Sure. It’s hard to believe that this is the only planet that has sentient life in the entire universe or any of its tuples (i.e. parallel universes). I also believe that they’ve had just as much trouble coming up with the necessary technology to come and visit us. They’re out there, I just don’t know if we’ll ever make contact or see any of them up close and personal.

In the morning, do you hit the snooze button on your alarm (sometimes repeatedly) or do you leap out of bed, ready to face the day? First, I’ve never used the snooze button to catch a few extra winks of sleep. (What, exactly, is a wink? If sleeping for eight hours is equivalent to 40 winks, that would equate to 5 winks per hour, or twelve minutes. You’re welcome.) Now that I’m retired, I get up pretty much when I get around to it, unless we have something to do, in which case Mary gets me up at the appropriate time. Mornings now include an hour hooked up to my leg pump

If you came back in the next life as an animal, which animal would you choose to be? A cat, preferably all black or tuxedo. What else would you expect?

    1. Well, yeah. When I was in grammar school the nuns would tell us that this is the only planet in the universe that had sentient life on it, and we’d all call them on it. They’d ask “how do you know there are other planets with life on them?” and we’d tell them the same way we knew there was a God. That’d stop them…

  1. Thanks, John for Sharing Your World! I’m also glad you liked the new badge. I may have to settle on just one one of these days Interesting thoughts on the Universe and animals and midnight peein’ (it’s not fair, in my humblest of opinions, that the older one gets, the more they gotta ‘go’. Especially at inconvenient times!) Have a great week!

  2. OMG! You are like my hubby as he would love to come back as a cat…as a tuxedo. I would like to come back as a wolf..if I had to come back as an animal. As for what a deal breaker is..I agree but I would place abuse ahead…physical or mental. I so agree with you about aliens etc.. it would be lonely to think are the only ones in the universe. Oh…I hit the snooze button, not all the time but …I still do.

    1. I always put the alarm clock across the room from me so I’d have to get up to turn it off, so the snooze button never did me any good. I was always afraid of having the alarm next to me, because as sure as God made little green apples I’d turn it off and go back to sleep.

  3. When I was a young man and a teen I would set my alarm for earlier than I needed to get up so I could hit the snooze button a few times. Seems kind of stupid now, but there was some kind of psychological thing about it I guess. Now that I don’t really need to get up at any particular time since I don’t have to go to work, forget any idea of snoozing in the morning. I tend to wake up and snooze all through the night.

    1. I wake up a few times during the night to take a whiz. I use a bedside urinal so I don’t have to get out of bed, just sit on the edge. I tend to get up pretty late as a result of all the sitting up and lying down. It’s gotten a little better since using the leg pump, but I’m using a stronger diuretic, and that keeps me going, so to speak…

    1. I find it hard to believe that, as vast as the universe is, and with an infinite number of stars with planets revolving around them, there’s no other planet that can sustain life and that we are the only sentient beings anywhere.

      Remember Pioneer 10 and 11, spacecraft that have left the solar system in search of life on other planets? They put a plaque on each of them (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneer_plaque) that was intended to show what humans looked like, where the Earth was relative to other planets and stars, so that, if one of them crashed on another planet and was discovered by other beings, they could find us? I saw a cartoon years ago with a picture of a well-dressed man and woman (extraterretrials) looking at the plaque, and one says “Looks like they’re just like us on Earth, but they don’t wear any clothes”…
