Sharing My World 28-06-2021

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

What do you think of the idea of the ‘greater good’ principle?
I’m all for it. I’m a big fan of the Greater Good.

My overriding principle is to do everything for the Greater Good of Me. Because the Greater Good of Me is for the Greater Good of everyone, and as soon as I’m crowned High King of Earth, everyone will realise that.

I have written to world leaders and the United Nations on this matter, but am still awaiting a response.

Do you enjoy riding a roller coaster or other amusement park type ride?
Nope. In no way whatsoever. I’ll keep my feet firmly on the ground. I’ll satisfy myself with some street food below. Though that might be more dangerous than the roller coaster.

Which musical instrument is the most annoying to you personally?
The deadly triangle. A whole beautiful song, ruined at the end by a sudden “ding”. Ding ding ding DING. My dreams, plagued by flying triangles of doom, always DING DING DING. Make it stop 😦

Would you rather have a vivid imagination or a photographic memory if you had to choose just one?
The imagination. The other one is just copying other stuff you’ve seen. It’s all very well being able to reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare from memory, but so can a photocopier.

    I’m with you on the roller coaster and the imagination V photographic memory, but for me the most annoying musical instrument would be the recorder. As a mother of three kids who “played” the recorder when they were in school, I still shudder 😣

      I had to play the recorder in primary school. I wonder if they still do that?

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World! I suspect the U.N. and world leaders haven’t responded because they’re too busy arguing over who gets to be second in command… it’ll sadly never be resolved. *sigh* That fair ground food might indeed be more dangerous than the roller coaster, and the cost? Freakin’ shocking. My purse fainted in horror at the thought of paying $10 for a bottle of water. Somebody’s getting rich.. I’m a bit surprised nobody said the cymbals. Because to me? That mess is more apt to cause sound pollution. Have a fabulous week !

      Everyone loves smashing on the cymbals!
      The UN doesn’t get to choose second in command. I do 🙂

    If you had a 3D printer, you could reproduce Shakespeare from memory. I’d like to see the Bard take a stab at flash fiction and answering SYW questions….

      Forsooth, I thinketh me the lute be a most vexing instrument…

    All Hail the great Greater than Great Draliman! Your coronation song will be played by the International Triangle Orchestra who have just sailed in from the Bermuda Triangle.

      It won’t be if the Master of Ceremonies knows what’s good for him… 🙂
