Sharing My World 26-08-2019

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. Which logo to use today? Ah, the agony of choice…

If you had to sum up the whole human species in 3 words, what would those words be?
Here are some choices, from worst to best.

All screwed up.

Getting there slowly.

Flawed but precious.

Where is the strangest place youโ€™ve relieved yourself? Obviously in an emergency situation.
This is a bit gross. But I was a student so that makes it not gross. Though I was a PhD student so I was a bit older.

At home… in a beer glass. Apparently the girls in the house had a “female situation” and had been in the bathroom for over an hour. And the boys were drinking and filling their bladders. Of course, I had to drink all the beer in the glass first so it was only delaying the problem…

What is the worst smelling place youโ€™ve ever been?
Hey, it’s a university story again! And it’s a bit gross again. I blame the questions.

This would be the toilets in the Students’ Union during a big event. We’re talking vomit everywhere. And a lot of it was black. Before it was banned, a lot of people (including me) were drinking “snakebite and black” – half lager, half cider and blackcurrent juice (to make it a bit drinkable).

How drunk is drunk enough?
As I don’t drink, anything at all for me. For other people, mellow but not aggressive.

      I didn’t want to be overly optimistic or pessimistic about the human race ๐Ÿ™‚

    After reading about universities over the years, I can’t believe how conservative my city university was. It went state the year I graduated. There was one frat house, however. It wasn’t quite as bad as “Animal House” though. ๐Ÿ™‚ — Suzanne

      We don’t have fraternities or sororities in the UK, but the drinking age is 18 so 99.99% of students can legally drink the moment they arrive…

    Ah!!!!!! Guinness and Vimto, and Black Velvet. Bliss.

      I had to look up Black Velvet – interesting! I’m guessing the Vimto takes the bitterness out of the Guinness…

    When you are vomiting black, you are drunk enough….

    When you are relieving yourself in your beer glass, before you’ve finished it, you are drunk enough….


    • September 1, 2019 at 2:52 pm

      That would have been a nasty shock when, 3 seconds later, I’d drunkenly forgotten I’d pissed in my beer…

    I beg to differ. “All screwed up” is the best answer.
    Although according to the presented evidence, the three words should be “They’re always drunk.” ๐Ÿ˜€

      The questions did seem to lead in that direction this week ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for Sharing Your Really Unique World with us, Draliman! I don’t know about the beer glass, but if I were male and could do such things, I’d have headed out of doors and watered the bushes. That’s what hubby did a few times when our plumbing went south and the plumbers were too damned slow. And now? I have a wonky bladder, so waiting isn’t something I do well. I’m saving up those gallon jars for the situation. TMI? Well you did it first, although I take the blame (credit?) for asking those silly questions! ๐Ÿ˜›

      Yes, this week’s questions led towards the gross. Or maybe it’s just my brain ๐Ÿ™‚

    I still, overall, the New York City subway always smells like a badly maintained men’s toilet. And it will never be cleaned up. You can’t clean up more than 100 years of disgusting mess.

      It’s been so long since I was on the London Underground I can’t remember what it’s like. I don’t remember it being too bad, though.

    Hilarious answers as usual. I love it.

    Ha! Weirdest place I ever peed was a throwaway cooler. Was camping and had a bit too much to drink and didn’t want to walk to the restrooms.


    • September 4, 2019 at 3:39 pm

      As you do…
      It was a standard cooler, it became “throwaway” after the “incident” ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh these uni memories! We were all crazy.
    Flawed but precious ๐Ÿ™‚ Love this one. So accurate.

      Mad times, but fun ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’m glad you liked the most optimistic one!
