Sharing My World 22-07-2019

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

What happens if you stare at the mirror for too long in the dark?
All unseen, the dark side of your soul is given free rein, its dreadful eyes burning into you, eating away at your very being, leeching, corrupting, until your brains dribble from your ears and you go massively, irreparably INSANE.

Or nothing at all.

One of those.

Do you think youโ€™re judgemental? What tends to bring it out in you?
Yes. Everybody is to some extent. Of course, some people pretty much make a career out of it.

Do you work better with actual lists or with mental lists?
I use mental lists until things get out of control and then I start writing stuff down.

When I go shopping I always make an actual list or I’m guaranteed to forget something and since I only go shopping once a week, that’s a major pain.

Would you go streaking across a football field during a game for a million quid, knowing thereโ€™s a 50/50 chance youโ€™ll get arrested for indecent exposure?
Hmm, it’s not so much the (pretty much 100% chance of getting arrested), it’s having the guts to actually do it. Though, on the criminal charges front these days it’s likely to be a lot worse than “indecent exposure”. Since there’s a reasonable expectation there will be children present you’ll likely be placed on the sex offenders register.

A million squidly-dids is a lot of money but I don’t think it’s worth the risk.

    Have you been staring at the mirror in the dark again?
    I thought so!

    Thank goodness there is no reflection when I look in the mirror!
    I’m the same with lists. Although I generally forget at least one thing on the shopping list even though I wrote it down. So that wasn’t you sprinting across the field in last night’s match? Not that I’m judging or anything. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Aha! I have arrived at the supermarket and have made a list of everything I need, so there will be nothing I forget this time! Absolutely nothing!!! Now, let’s see….

      In the olden days you could have opened a tab…
      I’ve actually forgotten my list on more than one occasion.

    Can brains dribble? Should I ask someone in the medical profession? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thank you Draliman for Sharing Your Interesting World with us!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Brain dribbles? Ew. And you’re absolutely correct. Some idiot with more time than brains (or common sense) would probably put the streaker on a sex offender registry. Even though no sex took place, nor implication of sex nor sex….I guess even thinking about sex is bad. And everyone (over the age of puberty) anyway is guilty. Damn. Those jails are gonna get wayyyy over crowded aren’t they? I like the old joke about the form to be filled out. Question: Sex? Answer (from some sharp wit) Yes. Whenever possible thanks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      You’ve really got to watch your step these days…

    We make the list, then we forget to bring the list. But writing the list helps so we only wind up forgetting one (critical) item … OR we write the list, bring the list — and we STILL forget one critical item because we forgot to put it on the list.

    Hi. Iโ€™m with you when it comes to grocery shopping. I gotta have a written list. Iโ€™m too insecure to go shopping without it! Take care โ€”

      Sometimes I almost turn the car round if I remember I forgot my list. Hey, at least I remembered something!

    I got the sudden urge to stare at the mirror after reading your post, Ali! haha

      What did you see? What did you see? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I read that if you turn the lights on and burn a candle and stare at the mirror for so long, that you’ll start hallucinating. I’m not testing that, though.

    Has anyone thought of bringing a pen or pencil and a piece of paper with them to the market and rewriting the list if they forgot it? Me neither. ๐Ÿ˜€ — Suzanne

      That wouldn’t work for me – I have to write stuff down the moment I notice I need it.

    When I look in the mirror in the dark I see a big two coloured panter and when Granny looks in the mirror in the dark, she doesn’t see anything, as she is night-blind…MOL๐Ÿ™€Extra Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ’ž
