Sharing My World 16-09-2019

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. This week we have another coolio new logo. Check this out!

Are we losing the art of listening in comparison to simply hearing?
Yep. It’s really embarrassing when someone suddenly stops talking and waits for you to answer and you have no idea what they said 😦

How often do you openly discuss with friends or here in WP with your readership topics that make you feel uncomfortable or may be taboo or stigma laden?
Pretty much never.

Do you think that these discussions should be freely discussed and written about more?
Yes. But not by me πŸ™‚

Did you have a nickname as a child and if so, what was [or what is it now]?
Ah, this old chestnut again. Here’s the picture which sparked it all, and click here for the SYW from last April with the explanation.


Me and Roland

I’m on the right (1985), taken in Germany.
Photo copyright BBC I would assume.

Why is there still β€˜stuff’ we simply just don’t understand despite our progressive world?
Why? We’re not so advanced that we could possibly understand everything about everything. The more we know, the more we realise we don’t know. So we’d have been better off not knowing anything at all, then we’d be of the belief that we knew everything.

Or something.

Would you rather double your height or lose half your weight?
Lose half my weight. Then I could eat pizza, chips, ice cream and chocolate for weeks until i regained a healthy weight. Lovely!

What is your most essential kitchen tool?
My cooker. Without that, there would be no pizza!

    If somebody took your cooker, you would lose half of your weight…

    Your answers are as substantial as the pizza! I like both.

    hehehe I find smiling and nodding works if I’m not really listening. Unless it’s something serious. Then I frown and nod. πŸ™‚
    That pizza looks awesome!

      The danger is when they start off talking about something nice and without warning they drop a bombshell on you and you’re still going “ha ha, yes, you’re not wrong”. That’s when it gets awkward πŸ™‚

    Thank you Alistair for Sharing Your World. I’m a bit embarrassed that the nickname question was a re-tread, but I’m not surprised. A year’s worth of Share Your World is bound to repeat now and then, even without beans on toast! πŸ˜‰

      It has always happened, no-one can remember all the questions ever asked πŸ™‚

    Just PLEASE don’t ask what I’d don’t with a million untaxed dollars again. Not unless you actually have the money and I’m getting it!

      Sadly such questions tend to be fairly hypothetical in nature.

    I’d lose half my weight, too. Mmm so many carbs to be had.


    • September 24, 2019 at 7:01 pm

      Just think of all the good times putting the weight back on again!

    Double your height or half your weight… that’s like choosing between being a monster or die for most people. I guess I’d go with being a monster. at least I could run around scaring people.
