Sharing My World 2017 Week 12

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


How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Hmm, tricky one. I’d better use a clever computer algorithm to work this out. Let’s see now… link in the Moto Body app, heart rate, blood pressure, random number generator (careful with the boundaries), carry the one, take away the number you first thought of…


That can’t be right, can it? Well computers don’t lie. 702.

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?
I know exactly where it is. Nowhere. Brollies are either so weak they blow inside out the moment someone sneezes or so strong you get blown in front of a bus. You’ve just got to hope one of those happens before you poke someone’s eye out.

Thinking about it, brollies are few and far between these days in town. There just isn’t room in the crowds.

Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?
Alone. I’m not sure how one can recharge one’s batteries by going out. It can be very tiring!

Name three things you and your spouse, partner or best friend  to have in common.
Like the same films, same sense of humour and, um, something else makes three things.

    I also don’t see how someone can recharge their energy by going out with friends. 😐 — Suzanne

      It’s after you come back from being out with friends that you need to recharge 🙂

    Great answers as usual. I probably feel 702 after a night out with friends – walking’s much better for recharging my batteries. And a good hood is much more useful than a brolly.


    • March 26, 2017 at 5:35 pm

      So after a good walk I bet you knock years off that 702!
      I never seem to have a coat with a decent hood, but I have a baseball cap.

    I don’t think the algorithm you used will be very popular. lol

    I’m with you on the at home to recharge! Sorry to hear about your umbrella problem. Hope it doesn’t rain on you today….


    • March 26, 2017 at 5:35 pm

      No rain today, Spring is here at last!


  5. March 26, 2017 at 1:34 pm

    I’ve never lived anywhere that was so crowded people couldn’t use umbrellas and have no choice but to get rained on. I’m imagining a lot of pushing and shoving with strangers on the streets. No wonder you find it tiring to go out! You’ve given me something else to be thankful for today.


    • March 26, 2017 at 5:36 pm

      It’s not so much pushing and shoving – this isn’t London! – but people with umbrellas take up five times as much space and the brollies are always at eye height…

        Goodness, how large are your umbrellas? I do have that problem sometimes with people passing on the sidewalk. Even when there’s just the two of us and plenty of space, they aren’t polite enough to move their umbrella so that it’s not crossing that invisible center line of “my side” versus “their side” of the sidewalk.

        You? Gasp! I must pause to fan myself. With my enormously huge fan. 😉

    I have been chuckling at that age question all week. If you didn’t know how old you were, how would you have a number to assign to how you feel? There are days I feel like I’m 80 years old, but how would I really know? I’ve never been 80 before. There are rare days when I feel like I’m 20 again…. but if I don’t know how old I am, how would I have known when I was 20 and what I felt like?


    • March 26, 2017 at 5:37 pm

      Yeah, bit of a weird one. Sometimes I feel like 20, then I get out of bed 😦


  7. March 26, 2017 at 2:08 pm

    Hahahaha! You sure do feel old! Poor guy, you have already missed your youth. LOL! I can’t recharge by going out with friends either. Definitely stay at home and recharge! Great answers Ali!


    • March 26, 2017 at 5:38 pm

      I’ve missed my youth either way, 702 or real age 😦
      Staying at home is the consensus of opinion it seems.

        Probably because most of us are older human beings and don’t fancy going out to party.

    702, eh? I hear 700 was a very good year! 😀


  9. March 26, 2017 at 11:27 pm

    I go with 42. If it was good enough for Douglas Adams, it’s good enough for me.


  10. March 26, 2017 at 11:52 pm

    We’ve just come through a very rainy spell here (only five months into our “water year” we’ve already received an average year’s worth of rain) and I don’t think I got out the umbrella once. They’re just too much of a hassle!

    I’m the same about recharging at home. I can’t comprehend how extroverts recharge by being around people. It completely drains me.


    • March 27, 2017 at 11:46 am

      Hassle is exactly the right word. From trying to stop them from going inside out to wondering what to do with it when you reach your destination.
      Being around people is just hard work 🙂

    Great post! Thanks!


  13. March 27, 2017 at 9:41 pm

    You sure don’t look 702! What’s your secret? 😉
    I also can’t imagine recharging my energy by going out. Impossible! 😁

      Loads and loads of face cream 😉
      A nice quiet night in’s just the ticket.

    I would like to be two years old forever for obvious reason everyone might think. “Carefree” is the the first reason.


    • March 29, 2017 at 7:16 am

      Endless playtime and never old enough to have to go to school 🙂


  17. March 30, 2017 at 7:14 am

    OMC 702…I wonder how old that would make me…or Granny…MOL 😀 Well, at least you look younger 😉 Double Pawkiss 🙂 3

    Brollies are evil things! I haven’t got one, either and rely on my very unfashionable hood or just get wet. I’ve almost had an eye poked out a few times by one of the things. I agree, there’s no room in towns for them nowadays.
    I have to say, you look pretty good for a 702-year-old. 😀


    • April 3, 2017 at 12:43 pm

      I’ve aged well 🙂 And brolly-free, too!

    I’ve never been into umbrellas. It’s not like I’m going to melt if I get a few raindrops on me. Back in Texas, rain was so common that I scheduled everything around the rain. Here in San Diego rain is so uncommon (and really isn’t rain at all in a Texas sense; it’s sprinkles) that I just don’t worry about it.


    • April 24, 2017 at 11:45 am

      The only annoyance with me and rain is that I wear glasses. We get so much drizzle down here and that is really bad for covering glasses. At least “proper” rain is just a sheet of water in front of your eyes eventually!
