Sharing My World 2016 Week 37

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


Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?
Oh goodness, yes.

I’d had him since he was tiny. We were the best – the very best – of friends. We did everything together, went everywhere together. When I was down, he was the only one who could cheer me up. When he was down, I did the same for him. Whenever I came home from school he would be there, waiting at the the window watching out for me so we could spend our evening having fun together. And oh, the fun we had!

Then, one dark and stormy day, I sneaked out of the house to play in the park. As I reached the far side of the road, I heard him behind me. I had left the garden gate open! He approached the road, the busy road… a car was coming, the driver not paying attention, coming closer and closer to my bestest buddy, close, closer…

Hang on, did you say “rock”? I thought you said “dog”. Ask me the question again.

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?

What is your greatest strength or weakness?
I’ll do both! My greatest strength is my supreme awesomeness in all situations. My greatest weakness is my tendency to exaggerate my strengths.

What makes you feel grounded? 
I’m not really a “feeling grounded” sort of person. I’m always doing something! However, just sitting and looking at lovely views will do the trick. A stream, the waves… Here’s the lovely sunrise taken from my back door yesterday.


Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?
Oh dear, what a choice to have to make. But I’m very fond of my chilli and pizza and whatnot so I’ll keep the warm food and ditch the cold.

    Your Supreme Awesomness, once again your answers are hilarious!
    (I hope nothing happened to your dog!)

    I didn’t think you’d misread the question because I’m totally ready to let Bashful outside to play in the traffic…

      I get a feeling he’d be fine, he looks a pretty tough sort 🙂

    Love the answer about your greatest strengths and weaknesses 🙂 and your fictitious story about your ‘bestest buddy’ dog had me well conned before I read your comment above. Fabulous sunrise! 🙂

    Dogs are more responsive, but rocks never bark and annoy the neighbors, and they are naturally housebroken.

      Much lower maintenance, rocks.

    Supreme awesomeness sounds like a lot to aspire to 😀

    I love your answers and the photo!
    Both are so brilliant!

      I’m glad you liked it all 🙂


  13. September 21, 2016 at 8:07 pm

    I don’t think you’re exaggerating your supreme awesomeness at all! Hilarious answers, as always, Ali. 🙂

    Only you would write about a fictitious dog in response to a question about a rock. 😛


  15. September 24, 2016 at 8:03 am

    I’m with you on the warm food thang – there’s just something more comforting going on there.

    I’m leaving your page smiling. Thanks for that.


    • September 24, 2016 at 4:21 pm

      And I’m leaving your comment smiling 🙂
