Share Your World for 12/12/22

Time for another edition of Share Your World! Di picked the questions, so I’ll provide the laughs…

As a kid, did you have roller skates, a go-kart or a push bike? Fabulous Auntie Jill gave me a pair of roller skates for my birthday one year. They were the kind that attach to your shoes. I think I tried them out once or twice, but really didn’t get the hang of them, and they languished in my closet after that. Never had a go-kart or a “push bike,” which I think is called a scooter on this side of the Atlantic. I had a regular bike, though, and rode it all the time.

Is this what you meant, Di?

Also, did you belong to a gang or just hang out with your friends? I just hung out with my friends. We had a “gang” in the neighborhood, somewhat loosely affiliated with the parish, called the Patch, that did some street gang things, such as all wearing the same jackets, drinking beer by the quart bottle, and spray-painting “PATCH” and “TURF SUCKS” (the Turf was the gang loosely affiliated with St. Gertrude’s, the parish on the other side of Devon) on walls. As far as I know, no rumbling was involved.

What is the best present, birthday or otherwise, you can remember as a child? I talk about my two favorite Christmas presents in a post I did for Writer’s Workshop, which you can see here.

If a friend stayed over, did you have a midnight feast or did you go to bed and sleep? We never really had people stay overnight. My tendency, of course, would be for food…

What gives your day a kick start? Donuts!

All for now! Bye bye bye…..!

  1. I had roller skates and also frequented the skating rink where I lived. I also had a red bike and rode it everywhere, much to my parent’s dismay. A cuppa joe gives my day a kick start. Donuts are a no-no for me because of the sugar.

  2. Donuts. Uh oh. Well, it’s the time of year to cheat so I shouldn’t talk. Ha.

    I had those roller skates. They didn’t work as well as those you used at the roller rink. They were neat, though, somehow. Metal with a skate key??

    1. I think a big part of the reason they didn’t work as well as the ones from skating rinks has less to do with the skates than with the surface we had to skate on. We’d try to skate on the sidewalk, which was concrete (with lots of little rocks in it) and had a groove every three feet. You’d end up on your face half the time. I admired thoser who could actually do it…

      1. I was JUST thinking exactly that! And the wheels were plastic at the rink, too. I think they started making plastic wheels on the metal skates, but yeah, the surfaces were tough. Ha. And I SO loved the idea of the skates!
