Sharing My World 21-09-2020

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World, with extra questions from Roger Shipp.

Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about?
Streets go both ways, surely ๐Ÿ™‚ No, I don’t remember ever going the wrong way.

As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches?
I may have, when I was very little. Or maybe it was my little brother. I (or he) only got a hundred yards away or so, though.

You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song?
I reckon a violin. I could play jaunty jigs and annoy the neighbours.

Do you accessorize with jewellery? There was an opal necklace (cursed) and Slytherinโ€™s locket (also cursed) in the Potter story. Have you had any heirloom jewellery passed down through the generations? Is it more โ€˜keepsakeโ€™ or do you wear it on occasion? (Hopefully, yours was not cursed?)
I’m not a jewellery person. I’m not married so no wedding ring, and I’m not a pimp or Mr T.

I pity da fool who wears this much bling

What ingredients go into YOUR favourite salad?
Ooh, I’ve heard of “salads”. I sometimes have a “salad” but the main ingredients are cheese and meat. So not so salad-y, really.

If you care to, share something that really irritates you.
That’s the subject for a whole new “War and Peace-sized” post.

What are your favourite โ€˜lounging around the houseโ€™ items of clothing? Now that a lot of people โ€˜lounge around the houseโ€™ waiting for the all clear in respect to Covid being shown the door, have those lounging items changed?
The same as my “going out” clothes but older versions, no longer deemed as suitable for outside wear. The jumper is a bit older, the jeans a bit tattier, but still fine for answering the door.

    Children don’t really decide to run away, adults do. Or they wish they could.

    I love the sound of violin too. And cello.

    So we both brought up pictures of Mr. T for the jewelry question. I think Mr. T needs to get a blog and answer this week’s questions…

      Pity da fool who mistakes me for a pimp…


  3. September 27, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    Can you come over and play the violin very badly and annoy my horrible neighbours?
    When you are home alone wearing old clothes you secretly wear your Mr T necklaces and eat salad?


    • September 27, 2020 at 3:53 pm

      No worries. It’ll work great, I’d be really bad ๐Ÿ™‚
      Shh, our little secret!

    Thank you Alistair for Sharing Your World! Great ‘salad’ idea!! Hey! “Antipasto” IS a type of ‘salad’ isn’t it? Mmmmm…..salad.. Wonderful, pithy answers which are strictly on point! Have a fabulous week!


    • September 28, 2020 at 5:00 am

      Antipasto is my type of salad ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. September 27, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    I love the sound of a jaunty jig, unless your violin playing is so bad it sounds more like a screeching samba. As for salads, the cheese and meat are definitely the best part, so in winter, you don’t have to eat the cold green leafy parts.


    • September 28, 2020 at 5:04 am

      I don’t mind some lettuce etc in my salad, as long as I can leave it on one side of the plate while I tuck into the meat and cheese ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. September 28, 2020 at 7:43 am

    So your not a pimp… Hmm… Little by little I’m getting to know you


    • September 29, 2020 at 4:42 am

      There are lots of other things I’m not – tune in again next week!


  7. September 29, 2020 at 6:51 am

    I think if I was wearing so much jewelry I would be on a hang out furrever…MOL..Great answers, Draliman! ๐Ÿ˜ธPawkisses for a Happy Tuesday๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ’ž

    Our son ran away several times to stay with friends. Once he ran away with a backpack and called us from a local payphone in a mall parking lot. He told us he was forgiving us. I asked him how he was going to travel and he told me he had connections. Hilarious. ๐Ÿ˜€ — Suzanne

      Ooh, “connections”, huh ๐Ÿ™‚

    I rode with a friend when we were teenagers and she went the wrong way down a one-way street in a very busy city. I didn’t ride with her again.

      Crumbs, that sounds a bit scary, and potentially a bit embarrassing!
