Sharing My World 09-09-2019

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

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery or came into a huge fortune?
I’d buy myself a nice island as a retreat, for the pursuit of self-awareness and introspection. It would just be me, my mansion, my private security army and my lethal response security system. We can’t have local yokels turning up in their crappy little boats and walking on my private beach, now, can we?

Which decade do you think had the best sense of style?
None of them. They’ve all been rubbish. In no decade has it been acceptable to walk around in your pyjamas. Except possibly in 70s discos.

Would you rather be half your height or double your weight?
Neither would be much fun. I suppose half my height, as double my weight would lead to imminent death. Although… weight can be lost but you can’t add height. So on the other hand, double my weight would be temporary.

If you wanted to get away from everyone totally, where would you hide?
My aforementioned private island, as any interlopers would be quickly dispatched by the aforementioned private security army or aforementioned lethal response security system.

    Are there still vacancies in your security team? Application form please!

    As soon as I win the lottery I will be buying the island next to yours 😀

      Yay, neighbour! I’ll instruct the security team not to open fire when you swim past 🙂

        Thank you! And I will instruct the giant squid not to demolish your island 🙂

          Quid pro quo and all that 🙂

    It will be a shame when that lethal security force takes care of that lost boat full of bikini babes that washes up on your island….

      “Victoria’s Secret pleasure craft presumed lost at sea”… noooooo!

    You’d probably have to spend a lot of time on your private island to get away from all the people asking you for money. 😀 — Suzanne

      All calls will be routed through my very rude and abrupt private assistant 🙂

    Thanks Mr. Alistair for Sharing Your World. I’ll be sure to send advance warning if I come to visit your island! EXTREME advance warning too! 😛 And I don’t know what they wear where you live, but here? I see people (men and women) who are walking around in PJs all the time. Wal*Mart is full of ’em. And today I saw a woman who was wearing some baby doll shorties (look up baby doll pajamas and you’ll get the idea if you don’t know what those are), to go shopping in. I can’t unsee that. I think I’m permanently blind now. A thin or slender woman wearing those things might get away with it (it’s trashy, but whatever), but a fat woman? Oh my GAWD!! I wanted to ask her what she was thinking, shaking all her adipose for everyone to see that way. Made my day (NOT)!

      Well, that sounds like a fun shopping trip!

    If I were half my height, I would be 2 feet 8 inches tall. Hardly human.


    • September 16, 2019 at 6:10 pm

      I’d only be a couple of inches taller!

    “for the pursuit of self-awareness and introspection.” Such depth to the answer to your question.


  8. September 17, 2019 at 1:50 pm

    I’ve seen A LOT of teenagers walking around in those onesie pajamas lately. Go for it 😉


    • September 17, 2019 at 6:14 pm

      Me and the teenagers will be setting the trend 🙂

    Granny also bought me an island and all the yokels I hiss away😺Extra Pawkisses🐾😽💞

      I bet no-one messes with you, especially in your pirate costume 🙂
