Share Your World for 1 August 2022

It’s that time again!

Do you ever feel more excited about getting the package in the mail, rather than the item that’s in it? It depends on how long I’ve waited for the package and how badly I’ve wanted the contents, but by and large I’m more excited to see the item inside.

What is the difference between your ideal self and your real self?  (i.e. what attribute or physical feature would allow you feel the ideal ‘you’?) The difference is 200 lbs and 35 years, and it would help if the right side worked as well as the left.

If you found $2,000 on the ground and there were no witnesses, what would you do with it? Pick it up and pocket it. If I saw any signs about losing the money or if I ran into someone desperately looking for $2000, I’d return it. Otherwise, I’d keep it.

Congratulations to the parents of George Jetson on the birth of their son yesterday! Eep opp ork ah-ah!

Are you ever morally obliged to take action? Under what circumstances? If it’s the law, then I really have no choice. Otherwise, I have to feel the sense of obligation before I take action. If someone tries to impose their sense of obligation on me, they can go pound sand.

Please feel free to share how last week went for you.   Bright or not so bright spots? Kind of boring, actually, but boring is good.

  1. I get excited about packages arriving even if I know what is in them. I’m of the same opinion about the $2,000. I’m never bored because I will always find something to do. It may be boring to others but not to me.

  2. Thanks John for participating in Share Your World! Great GIFs, and that child on the scale? Just learning that the thing is evil. 😆 That $2000 is a dilemma, but I would answer the same way as you did. A lot of folks would do what you did (and from the responses absolutely). This economy is so frightening and $2000 would help out immensely! Great description of the ‘ideal’ self, I personally think your fortitude and great sense of humor makes you pretty ideal as you are. Have a wonderful week and stay cool! 😎

  3. I’m with you on the money part. I’d keepbthe mulah! I always love having the package in my hand. I’m anxious untilnit arrives considering how often people steal things off one’s porch.
    I’d love to lose more weight, be toned without inner thigh fat but, most of all, no pain.
    I step in when I see someone being bullied or there is some injustice even if they ate not breaking the law, morally, if it is disgusting I will voice my opinion.
    Last week…worked 40 min. Over each day..no extra pay but it has to get done. Otherwise, nothing major and that is great. I don’t want another month like I had last Sept.

    1. We haven’t had a delivery stolen from us, but we’re home all day and Mary’s usually good about getting the stuff off the porch when she hears the delivery guy.

      At this stage of the game, I’d be content with getting my right side working. I’d be able to play the guitar again.

  4. Hi John – I’d rather be occupied … and I suspect the $2,000 would be a nuisance … finding a policestation would be difficult! Cheers Hilary
