Share Your World For 29 Nov 2021

This week, Melanie got the questions for SYW from Evil Squirrel. You have been warned.

If you had the power to strike one person in your life permanently speechless, who would it be? That’s a tough one, because there aren’t that many people in my life these days, and the ones that are there are not the kind that I would want to shut up permanently. Maybe me?

If you could relive your childhood over again, what’s one thing from this modern world today you’d want to take back with you? Only thing I can think of is that the guitar picks back then were really brittle and the thin ones would rip when you used them, and the tips of the heavier ones would break off. So I’d want to have the more modern picks available.

Dunlop Tortex poicks in .46, .60, .73, .88, 1, and 1.14 mm sizes. You’re about to see these colors again…

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple (violet, actually) are the standard colors of the rainbow. Name something you love (or greatly admire/appreciate) for all six major colors of the rainbow! How about: "Red Sails In The Sunset," "Oranges On Apple Trees," "Yellow Bird," "Green Eyes," "Blue Bird," and "Violets"? (You knew I’d turn it into a playlist, didn’cha?)

Your favorite Internet DJ!

If you were to open the world’s most accurate fortune cookie, what would your fortune inside it read? BOHICA! (Bend over, here it comes again!)

Santa’s tired of people leaving him out cookies and milk on Christmas Eve night! If you really wanted to get on Santa’s good side, what would you leave out for him to eat/drink instead? A bottle of Laphroaig (single-malt Scots whiskey) with all the accoutrements (Royal Scot crystal "Scottish Thistle" on-the-rocks glass, bottle of club soda, full ice bucket) and a Royal Scot crystal "Flower of Scotland" bowl filled with Chex Mix. Do I know how to party, or what?


What plans do you have for the upcoming holiday/celebration/festival season? None! Ain’t it great?

  1. Nice way to segue into the rainbow question with the guitar picks! And then there’s the question of whether Santa can be charged with DUI, or it’s OK as long as the reindeer remain sober…


  2. I liked all the songs especially yellow and the green but not the last one at all. Not into rap at all. Now, everyone has a right to free speech but I would be sorely tempted to put a zipper over Trump’s mouth, that idiot Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Q-Anon people…ughhh. That being said, they may want to put one big zipper with crazy glue over my mouth.
    I would like to take back dvd player and dvd’s..ok that’s 2 things but I don’t care.
    I love your answer about the fortune cookie as that applies to me as well.
    I am having my brother over Christmas Eve since my niece wants nothing to do with me (that nice text came at the end of August the day before my hubby ended up in the hospital). The next day we head over to my hubby’s niece who is having Christmas Day dinner and she is happy as she & her hubby are expecting.
    Colours of the rainbow: Red-Leaves in Fall. Orange-an orange, I love the fruit. Yellow-The painted Sun. Green-Freshly mowed grass. Blue (my fav)-Birds, Azure waters. Violet-Flowers.


    1. You might want to bear in mind that Marjorie Taylor Greene represents me in Congress, and I’ve been happy with the job she’s done. This is why I don’t talk politics here…

      You have to take DVD’s because they didn’t exist until the 1980’s.

      Sorry you’re at odds with your niece. Telling you how she wants nothing to do with you at a time when you’ve enough on your plate emotionally isn’t exactly the smartest idea…


  3. Thanks John for Sharing Your World! Your memes are magnificent (and yes, someone has corrected me about that whole “violet”/”purple” mistake. I’ll be sure to inform E.S. about that.. 😲 Santa is gonna come to your house and I suspect he’ll stay. He’ll be too ‘under the weather” to fly any further, even if Rudolph is actually driving (it’s cool having your very own designated driver). 😉 Those guitar picks and the rainbow theme worked excellently! And your playlist? On my party ‘tunes’ list! I never knew Santa could dance like that though. Must be a special ‘diet’ for someone that old to boogie like that and not fall over and break something! 😄 Have a fabulous week and YAY for the delivery folks, hmm? 😉


    1. Anyone who’s taken physics in high school knows about Roy G. Biv (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet). I suppose we could rechristen him as “Roy G. Bip”…

      Hooray for delivery!


  4. Hi John – Santa would definitely not be in a fit state to ‘jump the rooves’ or find his sleigh – many people would miss out on Christmas … but yes – a play list sounds good … cheers Hilary
