Sharing My World 2016 Week 24

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World.


What is the most fun thing you did in school?
I most enjoyed school trips. There was a memorable trip to London where we visited the zoo and watched the play “Mousetrap” at the theatre, and I made new friends too. But imagine the bravery of the teachers taking a whole class of 12 year olds so far away for a whole weekend!

We also went on several trips around Cornwall and West Devon, including the highest spot in Cornwall, the amusingly named “Brown Willy” (which was recently voted among the top five rude place names in Britain!).

What is your favourite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)
Stuffed doggies!

Andrex Puppies

The Lads.

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
Nooo, A thousand times no! And not if I wasn’t by myself either.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…
… chainsawed my own arm off for a drunken dare while singing the Zambian national anthem in a small mud hut in the Amazon rain forest.

    Oh..I forgot about school trips!
    Good answer.

    I was a teacher in a former life. That trip was brave. I love the bit about the rainforest experience. I’ve never done that either. You have an unbelievable imagination.:D — Suzanne

      Of course, as kids we didn’t give a thought to the poor teachers while we were busy ignoring their instructions!

    Last ans was thrilling:). The stuffed dogs are very cute😀😀😀

    Oh dear I think this trumps all the other hilarious stuff you have ever written.


  5. June 19, 2016 at 2:15 pm

    Hahaha! I wouldn’t saw off my arm either! Great answers!

    When I was in grade school, I did baby-sitting my little brother most of time, although it wasn’t my favorite thing to do, I had no choice.

    You always have the best answers, Dr. Ali!

    Those dogs look like like they would be easy to care for. 😀

    You know, of all the beasts I have on my shelf, I don’t think there’s a single dog. Now I wonder if they make dogicorns…?

    And I have never “… chainsawed my own arm off for a drunken dare while singing the Zambian national anthem in a small mud hut in the Amazon rain forest.” To be fair, I don’t think many of us have done that, even when seriously inebriated 🙂

    C’mon, I’ll go if you go to that party….

    OK, maybe I won’t.

    How far is London from Cornwall? With the exception of the Senior Trip to Disneyworld (12 hours by chartered bus), all of our field trips were within 2 hours of home.


    • June 20, 2016 at 2:00 pm

      It’s about 270 miles. Google reckons you can do it in around 4 and a half hours (without traffic). Ha ha ha. More like 6. It was a whole weekend trip!


  14. June 21, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    A whole weekend with a large group of 12-year-olds…. That is a terrifying thought!

    I’ve done some stupid things while under the influence but nothing nearly as stupid as chainsawing off my own arm on a drunken dare!


    • June 22, 2016 at 7:39 am

      We had fun, never a thought to the poor teachers 🙂

      Occasionally there’s a news story about someone (usually in Eastern Europe) who has done something like this…


      • June 22, 2016 at 7:14 pm

        While I’m sorry to hear that anyone is stupid enough to saw off their arm for no good reason, it is good to know that it isn’t just Americans who do stupid things!


  15. June 21, 2016 at 8:42 pm

    I knew you had something with mousies too, Draliman 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 ❤


  16. June 25, 2016 at 1:05 am

    Love style of the doggie in pink 🙂


    • June 25, 2016 at 5:21 am

      He’s a charity special edition 🙂

    Your two ‘lads’ are adorable and, I imagine, never wake you in the middle of the night by barking at a passing hedgehog or suchlike. And I totally agree with you about the party. I’d steer well clear of that one, too. As for your last answer, I seriously hope you aren’t considering trying it! 🙂


    • July 3, 2016 at 4:08 pm

      No, the lads are very quiet and well-behaved 🙂
      I think I’ll give the chainsaw thing a miss…
