Share Your World for June 7, 2021

Share Your World time again! Let’s see what Melanie has for us this week…

What’s the worst commercial you’ve recently seen (or heard)? Why was it so bad? Let’s just say I have no intention of giving Liberty Mutual any business anytime soon. All their commercials are D-U-M dumb, particularly the guy selling wet teddy bears, followed very closely by Limu Emu and Doug.

What takes a lot of time but is totally worth it? Flying to Australia from Atlanta. Right now, that’s the only thing that occurs to me.

Have you ever smiled at a stranger and then wished you hadn’t? Why or why not? On more than one occasion, I’ve smiled at a stranger, discovered that the person is a total kook, then been unable to get away from them.

What do you think is the nastiest tasting food? Practically any condiment. About the only ones I like are barbecue sauce and oil and vinegar dressing (in a stretch, vinaigrette). The rest of them – mustard, ketchup, relish, mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, honey mustard, bleu cheese dressing, tartar sauce, hot sauce, steak sauce etc. – are just awful. (Yes, you have asked that before, but I don’t mind.)

Are you at peace with yourself? Your world? I’m at peace with myself. My world has been kind of crazy: my brother Kip, who comments here pretty regularly, has been in the hospital for about a week. I don’t feel it’s my place to talk about why, but it is kind of serious. Any prayers, good thoughts, positive energy etc. would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  1. I agree with you on that stupid insurance ad that is way too long. I will add those stair lift chairs and very annoying “I’m A Big Kid Now” or “What size do you need?” “There’s a size?”..ughhh. I love to save up for things and pay cash then it’s mine and no interest. I have smiled at someone who just kept walking, I end up looking down at my shoes feeling like an idiot. I hate, repeat, hate sausage. Greasy, smelly fat…yuck.


  2. Sending prayers for Kip, John! I’ve never been one to like glop on my food. The only condiment I like is spicy mustard. Insurance commercials are dumb and it seems they are trying to outdo each other with dumbness.


  3. Thank you John for Sharing Your World! I’ll send healing thoughts and say a few prayers for your brother. That’s so frightening! My own siblings (like me) are getting ‘up’ there in years and one of them is under a huge amount of stress almost all the time. I worry about him and the phone call I’m going to get one day. He doesn’t know how to step off and just slow down. Sorry. Not about me, I do hope sincerely that your brother recovers and is well once again! So you’re the bigger “no sauce’ guy than I am? I thought I was a weirdo because I HATE that goop that they inevitably slather all over innocent fast food. gag. I do like most of the condiments you listed but in severe moderation and best if I do the moderating. Mayonnaise is just nasty though. ulp That meme was PERFECT to describe them. I’ve never heard of wet teddy bears and I’m not going to go find out. Insurance company ads make me bilious. Have a grand week and here’s hoping for really good news for you soon!!


  4. hey John – prayers for Kip right now!
    and i did not like the wet teddy bears commercial – still do not fully get it


      1. oh good – and pray the doctors and nurses and all workers will have any needed insight and wisdom for what he needs ((and not mistakes))


  5. Well, I hear you on Miracle Whip and tartar sauce! And steak sauce. But like combos of the others. Alone or combined to make complex sauces. And I agree on that teddy bear commercial thing. God.
