Sharing My World 18-10-2021

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

Are you easily frightened or startled?
I am when I suddenly become aware that there’s a spider crawling all over me. It’s probably quite amusing to watch me screaming and jumping up and down.

If you were a ghost, what location do you think you would haunt? Is it the same or different from the location youโ€™d want to haunt?
I’d probably end up being allocated some boring spot somewhere by the Ghostly Supervisor. whereas I’d prefer to be haunting the… um, never mind ๐Ÿ˜‰

What do you see in your mindโ€™s eye when you close your eyes?
I see everything and anything. My mind’s eye is free to roam the universe, where it makes stuff up with gay abandon.

If a Semi (Big Rig in Americanese) (lorry or trolley over the pond) were about to smash into a crowd, and you could divert the vehicleโ€™s course to hit only one person, would you? How would you decide who would become the victim?
Even if I weren’t frozen in indecision, I’d probably leave it alone and yell warnings. Leaving it alone is “what will be, will be” whereas if I messed with it, I’d be deliberately killing the one person.

    I’m pretty sure the Ghostly Supervisor will never give you THAT assignment. He probably takes it for himself…

    Thank you Alistair for Sharing Your World! So the supervisor of all things ghostly put you on BOG duty then? *snicker*. Now why there is a bog at all boggles my mind, I mean do ghosts still need the facilities? Only really mean people who don’t ‘get’ that spiders are pure evil sent here to torture those of us wise enough to see the plot would laugh or find it hilarious that you were freaking out. Those of us who also freak out (I know the damned thing is smaller than me. Your point would be WHAT??) ๐Ÿ•ท have nothing but sympathy and empathy for your situation. Spiders..brrrr! Ew. Now I have a mental picture of your mind’s eye, dressed in lilac satin, prancing around the Universe shouting ‘Yoo hoo!” at all the cute stars… ๐Ÿฅบ (no profiling intended). Have a great week Alistair and thanks for the laughs and great answers!

      Some spiders are really fast too. I bet they could outrun me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    That last answer was brilliant, Ali. Who wants to play god? That’s why when I hear words like “greater good” getting thrown around it makes me think of all the apocalypses ever written or imagined, yeah, Orwell included.

      You’d soon get overwhelmed and go nuts with that kind of power ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Eek spiders! Perhaps you could be the Ghostly Spider Annihilator. ๐Ÿ™‚ Excellent answer for the last question.

      Yes, that’s what I’d haunt – spiders ๐Ÿ™‚ Ooh, I wonder if there are ghost spiders ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    How about mice? Or cockroaches?


    • October 26, 2021 at 6:43 am

      I’ve never seen a cockroach. I had a couple of mice under the fridge a few years ago. They were very cute but I didn’t really want them in the kitchen so I finally managed to catch them and pop then out in a field ๐Ÿ™‚
