Sharing My World 26-09-2021

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

What’s your favourite way to exercise?
Cycling along on my Wattbike through a landscape on Zwift. Preferably somewhere fairly flat. There’s a lovely island off Japan which sometimes shows up but it’s all hills.

What’s more important to you – family or friends?
Both, of course. Both completely equally. There’s no telling who’s reading this 😮

Have you ever voted for someone (in whatever venue – politics, contests, school elections) based solely on how they looked?
No. All the even vaguely cute politicians stand in constituencies further up country. So I have to fall back on less important things like policies and “what they stand for”. Yaaaawn.

How could carousels be spiced up so they are more exciting?
I guess you could use real horsies. When it starts going round they’ll jump off and run amok, knocking over coconut shies and whatnot. The kids would love it! I expect Health and Safety would knock that one on the head, though.

    You could combine your Wattbike with a carousel so the faster you pedal the more horses fly off. Could be fun!

      Sadly at the moment the horses would just get rather bored. But that would give me a good reason to get my fitness up to “flying horse” speed!

    I would love to trade my stationary bike for a carousel with real horses. But my living room isn’t big enough.

    Thanks, Alistair, for Sharing Your World! A “live” carousel? What a nifty idea! I suppose the horsies would have to wear those weird looking ‘diaper’ things that one sees on them in some more up market parades or venues though. I mean who wants a bunch of rowdy children sliding around in horse poop? Although that might add a further element of ‘fun’. 😂 No, we never do know exactly who is out there in the dark reading. I’ve been shocked a time or two, when someone from my real life, says “Oh I really enjoyed *insert diamond gem of writing goodness* that you wrote!!” I want to go back under my rock of solitude. 🥺 Have a fabulous week! One further thing: What the heck is up with the coconuts? Remember I’m ‘over the pond’, but I’ve seen those things featured in a lot of the British TV shows I watch. Usually people are warned that the coconut will be rotten, should they happen to win one… 🤔

      No horse nappies allowed. We’re going for realism here!
      Coconuts are big at fairgrounds. At least I suppose they still are. I’m not sure where that all came from!

    You made me look up Zwift because I was pretty sure you weren’t cycling all the way to Japan…


    • October 4, 2021 at 6:13 am

      I can’t even cycle up one of the hills on the island…

    That watt bike sounds like a good one.

      It’s a good way to get fit, cycling along through virtual landscapes. Less boring 🙂
