Sharing My World 06-07-2020

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

In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to real magic?
Ever since I watched the excellent multi-part documentary “Star Wars” I’ve been intrigued by the “Force”. There’s some incredible things you can do with it. However, I have tried and failed to move so much as a paper clip. I guess my midi-chlorian count isn’t high enough 😦

Where is the worst smelling place you’ve been?
I don’t really know. When they put manure on the fields, that’s pretty smelly though. It gets right into the office. That’s the thing about living in a rural area.

What are some things that you’ve heard in your own life, which sounded like compliments but were actually insults?
I can’t really recall much in the way of passive-aggressive stuff in real life. Unless it’s coming from me. The best stuff is heard around the dinner table in Downton Abbey. They really knew how to politely insult people back then!

What incredibly common thing have you never done?
I’m sure some things are thought of as “incredibly common” to some people that aren’t to others. I’ve never been to a gym? That seems a bit common. I’ve never been to America or Spain – lots of people I know have.

I’ve never risked reversing up to the edge of a drop like this van in the village. Okay, there’s a bit of a lip but even so, I’m sure I’d find a way to topple over.

    All along I though you were from the States.
    (You shoud definitely go to Spain someday.)

      Nope, not from the States. You can tell by my spelling. A “u” in colour, “s” instead of “z” in multiple words 🙂

    I suggest more practise with the lightsaber.
    The Dowager Countess had some of the best insults I’ve ever heard!
    I would never try that in a car either. For some reason, I have very little depth perception when backing out of a driveway. Even the camera doesn’t help; I nearly hit my fence.

      Forgot to mention–You always have nice garden photos. I think the faeries appreciate the flowers. 🙂

        The camera on my car is more useful for checking some little kid hasn’t run out. I rely on the beeping from the sensors and the overlaid colours on the camera screen 🙂
        I’m glad you like my garden photos. Zooming out, it’s a lot less tidy 🙂

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World! Nobody in the mundane world (ours) has the Force. Well maybe George Lucas… but given the crap people do WITHOUT the Force, can you imagine what it would be like if they had it? Dark Jedi everywhere. *shudder* Manure can be smelly, sure; just be glad you’re not down wind from a pig farm… 🙂 Have a great week!

      That’s true. Fortunately there are only ever two Sith, I believe, master and pupil. “Always two, there are” said Yoda, or words to that effect 🙂

    You’re not alone… Three Dog Night never went to Spain either.

    I can’t do the Force either, but I’m pretty good with the Schwartz. (Aims ring at a tender location) Here, let me demonstrate….

      Funnily enough I nearly included a screen shot from Spaceballs in the post…

      No, there a Trump-Covid conjunction at the moment. Maybe wait until that passes.

    Great answers.

    Hey, I haven’t been to Spain either – Barcelona isn’t exactly Spain right?
    Hope you are doing well. Sorry I was absent so long. Have been having some tough times.
    Stay safe!
