Sharing My World 08-04-2019

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

What does a successful relationship look like to you?
It’s very difficult to tell. Maybe people who do lots of things together, as a team. Some people who look all peaches and cream on the outside can be allΒ grrr behind closed doors.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a medal for?
Advanced Afternoon Napping. I’m pretty good at that.

What do you wish you knew more about?
The life-cycle of the tsetse fly. No, quantum string theory, that’s it. No, wait, the life and times of Sun Tzu. I wish I knew more about what I wish to know more about.

What is better in your opinion – asking for forgiveness or permission?
That depends very much on the consequences of not asking for permission…

    That answer about the behavior of people behind closed doors sounds a bit like what you concerning Hollywood divorces. Great answers, Ali. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

    Your replies to these questions prove that you have a great sense of humour. However, we’re not learning so much about your world, so I’ll wake you up from your afternoon nap now (I think it’s mid-afternoon over there) and give you another question or two. πŸ™‚ Since I just mailed off a birthday card to my English penpal, I’ll ask:

    Have you ever had a penpal? If you could have one/some, from what country or countries would you want them to be?

      Aw, I was having the nicest dream…
      I did have a penpal once, from Germany. It was one of those things you do in German class. It would probably be an email pal now.

    You know, there would be an incredible amount of competition in AAN. In any case, go for the gold!

    Ah, consequences. The forgotten other side of doing the wrong stuff. Just when you think you’ve gotten away with it, those damned consequences show up.

    If I ever win the gold medal for Advanced Afternoon Napping, I really hope they don’t wake me up to present it to me. And they better play the national anthems very softly…
