Sharing Your World 2018 Week 23

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


A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?
I remember one or two bits and bobs. I remember wearing such excitements as shorts and sandals to primary school. Corduroy trousers. I had a “cool” cagoule, a really thin one, which folded up into a tiny pouch and was worn around the waist. I always wore a snake belt, much like this one.

Regardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: if you could be an athlete what would do do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.
I reckon I’d be a long distance runner. It would be nice to be able to go out for long runs by myself (even in a race I’d be by myself as I’d be miles ahead of everyone else), just loping along mile after mile without having to stop every couple of hundred metres to gasp for air and throw up in the ditch.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?
Generally I’d prefer to drive. I’m hardly ever a passenger – maybe once a year if my parents are driving me out somewhere. My Mum always complains that I go “too fast” when I’m driving, though. I don’t think she like the g-forces 😦

    Snake belts were just the coolest! And cagoules the most useful, although they only ever worked well in a short shower. Oh dear, you’ve sent me back to think about some bad clothes’ choices, so I’ll just point out a sight disconnect between long distance running and g-forces in terms of the speed of moving forward, but I’m sensing it’s more about control…

      The cagoule I had got so wet inside just from condensation or whatever it was, you’d only want to wear it if it was really raining hard. Then it leaked 🙂

        Exactly – useless for all their ideas of usefulness. Although, you would have been found if lost on a mountain as they were all bright/ gaudy.

          Yes, it was bright orange 🙂

    Taking Mom on a white knuckle ride is such a fun thing to do, though. She always hated it when I’d whiz up and down the spiral ramps in the parking garage…

      Hold on Mum, we’re going for a ride…

    Love the snake belt! 🙂

      All the kidz were wearing them back in the 70s 🙂

    I had a snake belt. Also corduroy pants. Oh, those were the worst, especially if you were playing a game where you have to quietly select kids in your class while their eyes are closed. The swish, swish of the corduroy gives you away every time.

      They were big across the pond too, then! Ah, the 70s… 🙂

      Then I’d have to run twice as far. As I recall, Gimli did a pretty good job keeping up 🙂

      That would be fun. Ask Granny if she can find you one 🙂
