Sharing My World 02-09-2019

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

When you’re 90 years old, what do you suppose will matter most to you?
Watching “Homes Under the Hammer” at the retirement village while keeping my bodily functions under control. I hope there’s raspberry jelly for pudding today! I can’t handle anything that requires chewing.

What’s the best way to spend a rainy afternoon?
Napping, reading, watching TV and playing PS4. It doesn’t have to be rainy!

What is one thing you don’t understand about yourself?
I understand myself perfectly. I know myself like the back of my hand… aargh, what the hell’s that on the back of my hand? How long’s that been there?

When was the last time you tried something to look ‘cool’ (hip), but it ended in utter embarrassment? Details?
I don’t have to try to look cool, it’s just something that comes naturally 🙂

There was this one time when I was walking along the top of a wall and decided to jump dynamically off the end. I leaned too far forward during the jump and went head over heels. I did, however, manage to twist in the air so I didn’t land on any of my expensive electronics. I landed on my face instead so that was a lucky escape.

    Ah, ha, ha. You left us with a cliffhanger, Ali. What on earth was on the back of your hand? —- Suzanne

    Pro tip: never look at the back of your hand, especially as you get older. You do *not* want to know what’s going on down there.

    Good thing you landed on your face. It heals itself naturally. Not like those fancy-dancy electronics!

    Lucky you! Some people have to suffer with trying to use phones with a cracked screen. You only cracked your face!

      You need to twist in the air, you see…

    Hilarious, as always! You should have your hand and head examined 😀 Thank goodness the electronics escaped unscathed!

    Ouch! It’s not the last time I tried to look cool, but once in eighth grade, I tried to look cool by hopping a fence at an amusement park. Broke my foot.

      Ohh noo! That reminds me of the time I tried to jump a wall at school, ended up draped over it and my school trousers split right up the back. One of the teachers had to sew them up again 🙂

    Oh my goodness!!! A face plant is never funny (except to those watching the victim of course). Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your Humourous World with us!! 😀

      I was less amused than other people seemed to be 🙂

    LOL…your poor face!

    Oh so funny…I mean…sorry for the face plant

    It’s important to pay attention to the back of your hand. It has valuable lessons to teach! See you —

    After your raspberry pudding today, tomorrow ask for the cinnamon buns. They’re to die for … and no one says that lightly in a nursing home!
