Share Your World for April 12, 2021

Time once again for Melanie’s Share Your World!

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time? I saw a bumper sticker once that said "FREE TIBET!" and underneath, in small letters, "with purchase of Tibet of equal or greater value." I dunno, maybe a skunk?

Have you ever gotten a really bad haircut? Do share! Mom told me that she tried to cut my hair once and I ended up wearing a hat for a month.

The worst one I can remember: After Mary and I got married, we lived in the building she grew up in (it was a family building). Usually I got my hair cut in downtown Chicago because I worked there, then when I got a job away from downtown (working third shift) I kept going to the same barber (the train I took to and from work went through downtown). This one time, though, I needed a haircut, and decided to try the barber my father-in-law went to in the neighborhood. He was one of these old-fashioned barbers that talked the whole time you were in the chair. Being half asleep because I was working nights, I didn’t pay much attention when he turned the chair to show me his handiwork, so I didn’t know how bad it looked until I got home and Mary said, "My God, what did he do to your hair?" The guy didn’t leave enough hair that I could go to my guy and have him fix it. I let my hair grow for a couple of months before I went back to my barber, and he was like "what butcher did this to you?" I made Bill Gates look good…

Isn’t Disney Land and Disney World (and all the variants) just a people trap operated by a mouse? I suppose you could say that, though the mouse has been downplayed in recent years. It’s hard to say what the Disney corporation has become in the last few years, but something tells me Walt wouldn’t be pleased.

What if Batman got bitten by a vampire? What would happen? The vampire would die (again), because Batman’s tougher than vampires.

A better dancer, too…

What do you want your final words to be if you could choose? "Let’s order a pizza!"

From Giordano’s, no less!

  1. Oh my, Buy one VD cream get the second one free. I got my haircut when I was a kid by my aunt. She literally placed a bowl over my head and cut around it. I was so upset that I looked exactly like my brother who was equally upset that he looked like me. I told my mom never again. Disney would be appalled but I could easily see him be swayed to the dark side. Batvire?? I mean, if he did turn into a vampire the women would not follow him in that outfit…poor Adam West who loves dancing the Batoosi. My final words. “Not yet, I’m not done!”

  2. Fun post, John! Yes, I have had some bad haircuts and even worse dye jobs! I used to get highlights in my hair and way back when, the salon I used to go to made a big boo boo and I had purple highlights in my natural red hair. Yikes! Nowadays, that wouldn’t be such a shock but it was back then. I had to go to another salon to get my hair back to normal.

    1. I’ve worn mine long for over 20 years (if I keep it short, I have to have it cut about very four weeks, and who has time for that, right?) but Mary cuts hers pretty short, and there are times the stylist cuts it way too short. Hers grows pretty quickly, though.

      1. I have long hair and I cut it myself, and since it turned white, I don’t color it either. I try to cut Paul’s curly hair, which at least doesn’t show too many of my mistakes.

  3. Thank you John for Sharing Your World! Now I want pizza, and not just any ol’ pizza, I want THAT pizza you shared in your image!! They just don’t make ’em like that anymore (not in Utah where I live anyway). I haz a HUMONGOUS sad too!! I used to love pizza… sigh I don’t know what it is about bad barbering, but man. The result can be horrifying! I did a similar thing to my youngest brother once, when I was in cosmetology school. I did NOT go on to be a cosmetologist suffice it to say. As always your memes were perfect and in such great accord with the weird questions this week! I’d forgotten that Batman was so tough. Besides the vampire (well any self-respecting vampire) would laugh themselves silly when they saw his costume…. LOL Have a great week John!

    1. Check your grocer’s freezer case (remember when they used to say that?) for Home Run Inn Pizza. It’s made by a great pizza establishment on the South Side, and it’s the only kind of pizza we eat anymore. You might think “frozen pizza? ew, gross!” but I can assure you that their frozen pizza is as good as or better than any you can get from Pizza Hut, Papa John’s or Little Caesar’s. Check TastesOfChicago.com for more Chicago goodies, including Home Run Inn pizza.
