Share Your World For May 3, 2021

Time once again for Share Your World, where Melanie asks the questions and I answer them, more or less truthfully, always entertainingly.

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total a-hole? I’d like to be super nice and happy. The two choices given are a choice between being a codependent and a sociopath.

Have you ever made someone cry? Yes, and that’s all I’m going to say about it.

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter? A dreamer, which I really regret. The stroke has really made me look at everything I wanted to do but didn’t because I thought it was impossible, and on close reflection I realize that, if I channeled the time I spent dreaming about it into actually doing it

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play? Until the stroke, I played guitar, bass, and harmonica. One of those, probably.

The great Wes Montgomery

Considering how heavily it’s been raining in my neck of the woods, I’m grateful to have a roof over my head…

  1. I agree with you-nice and happy. I don’t want to be a dependent or sociopath with narcissistic tendencies. I have made people cry and I meant to do it which I hate when that bad side of me creeps up. I am a dreamer and I like it that way. I tried to play the flute but I can’t hold the notes so I will go to piano since I took that for 6 yrs. Maybe I would do the triangle?


  2. Thank you John for Sharing Your World! Very good thinking on that first answer (all the answers were excellent of course), you ARE a super nice happy fellow! And Fandango classified that question as “binary’ thinking which it is. What are we? Computers? 😉 Wonderful memes, but I admit that first one? Creeped me out a little. High-functioning sociopath? Uh yeah. I’d change my number personally. O_o Have a splendid week John!


    1. I think that one is from the modernized Sherlock Holmes series with Benedict Cumberbatch that ran on the BBC (and later on some PBS stations). It was actually really well done, Holmes being a high functioning sociopath notwithstanding. Glad you enjoyed it!


    1. I think it’s always a choice, really. There are some people who choose to be bitter and angry about everything, even when things go their way, and there are others who seem never to complain or get upset and are happy regardless of what life has handed them. Those are conscious choices, when you think about it.
