Sharing My World 15-04-2019

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

Guns? Are you pro or con? Explain your point of view.
Largely con, though I live in a country where even the regular police don’t carry guns and gun possession is largely illegal. As a result, there is very little gun crime, so that’s a good thing! People just stab each other instead. Of course, it’s difficult to slaughter a whole room of people in five seconds using only a kitchen knife.

How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?
I’d be a member of parliament! While the adult vote would be split between the main parties, I would get 100% of the kiddie vote by offering tax breaks on sweets and chocolate and a ban on homework.

Of course, in order to get a tax break they’d have to pay tax on their pocket money, but they’re too young to understand that and then it’ll be too late – see, I’m thinking like a politician already!

What’s your cure for hiccups?
A complete throat and stomach transplant. It’s the only way to be sure.

What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?
I’m always cold. At work, it’s my “thing”. To pick out an especially cold incident would be impossible, I’m afraid.

    A complete throat and stomach transplant, huh. You must have good friends who are surgeons. That would be about as close to Frankenstein’s monster as you could get. O_o — Suzanne

    I have a cows stomach going spare. It’s not in very good condition though. In fact, it’s tripe!

    I’d be careful about trying to pull a fast one on the kids like that. You’ll be the first politician ever to be assassinated by slingshot…

      Well, it’ll be nice to his the history books for something, even if it is a rock through the eye socket. Why am I getting a sudden mental image of a certain possum flying backwards with blood spraying from his eyeball…?

    I’m thinking you may be banished to the South Pole if you become a politician. And penguins do not take kindly to taxes! πŸ˜€

    Thanks for Sharing Your Hilarious World!! Your hiccup remedy is a bit extreme, but as annoying as I find them, it might be worth it. πŸ˜‰ Cheers!

    You would be an excellent prime minister. Just keep handing out that chocolate.

    I agree. With a kitchen knife, mass murder in five seconds or even a minute would be difficult if not impossible. As for curing hiccup, I swallow a teaspoonful of honey to stop the hiccup. It always works for me.

        Many people don’t know it. It’s my mom’s remedy. I don’t know where she got that. But it works for me every time. Tip: Swallow a teaspoon of honey and hold your breath for several seconds.
