Sharing My World 07-06-2021

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

What’s the worst commercial you’ve seen (or heard)? Why was it so bad?
It has been so long since I saw an advert I can hardly remember any. I watch mainly streaming services, or programmes on the BBC, which has no adverts. If I want to watch something broadcast on one of the commercial channels, I never ever watch it “live”. I record it so I can fast-forward the adverts.

I’ve searched my memory but I’m drawing a complete blank on this one.

What takes a lot of time but is totally worth it?
I’m not really into things that take a lot of time. I’m lazy like that. I like lots of different things that take short amounts of time.

Have you ever smiled at a stranger and then wished you hadn’t? Why or why not?
Probably, though I can’t remember the last time. It would have been like the usual “awkward wave” moment. The one where someone is waving, and you think “who’s that?”, but you don’t have a good memory for faces, it could be someone you know, and you wave back. Then you realise your horrible mistake when someone else waves back and you try to awkwardly turn the wave into a head scratch or arm stretch and you make it worse…

What do you think is the nastiest tasting food?
For me, I reckon that’s celery. I even tried some recently because I didn’t believe it could be as bad as I remembered. It was.

    I thought I hated celery as well, then I discovered I actually love it, especially in soups.

    Thanks, Alistair for Sharing Your World. Celery, hmm? We all have foods that don’t do the trick for us, don’t we? Like you, I stream my TV viewing and must say that it’s lowered my blood pressure and boredom thresholds greatly. Who needs to see the same ad roughly twelve thousand times? It might even be a clever or cute one – for the first ten sightings, but after that? Overkill city. It sounds like you get a lot accomplished in short bursts! Have a great week!

      Watch what you want when you want with no ads. That’s the life!

    I have morphed into binge-watcher due to streaming services. hehe I remember faces but not names. The International Celery Club is very depressed now. 😀

    Commercials are sometimes the best part of American TV. It’s a shame when some show has to interrupt the ads…
