Sharing My World 29-11-2021

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. This week is another squirrely one courtesy of the critters of the Shelf.

Mr Fox – If you had the power to strike one person in your life permanently speechless, who would it be?
I strike people speechless on a daily basis purely from the power of being me.

Tina – If you could relive your childhood over again, what’s one thing from this modern world today you’d want to take back with you?
Relive my childhood? Are you mad?

Rainbow Donkey – Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple are the standard colours of the rainbow. Name something you love (or greatly admire/appreciate) for all six major colours of the rainbow!
Purple? That’s history-changing. In this country we use the rhyme “Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain” to remember the colours. He died in battle, you see. If we change Indigo/Violet to Purple we’ll have to change it to “Properly” and he wins! Oh no!

Red – spectacular sunset
Orange – normal sunset
Yellow – sun(set)
Green – sunset viewed through tall grass
Blue – sunset under water
Purple – sunset on Venus

Here’s sunset from my bedroom window a few days ago.

Hung-Lo – If you were to open the world’s most accurate fortune cookie, what would your fortune inside it read?
Hmm, let me see… how exciting! And… it’s blank! How can it be blank? What can this mean? What can this mean?

Shelf Santa – Santa’s tired of people leaving him out cookies and milk on Christmas Eve night! If you really wanted to get on Santa’s good side, what would you leave out for him to eat/drink instead?
Milk and cookies? What sort if treat is that for Santa? Over here it’s sherry and mince pies. I’ll add some Cornish clotted cream for him.

    With your power to make people speechless, I think most Americans would appreciate it if you went to Mar a Lago and ….

    Who knew messing with the rainbow could alter history?

      Why do you think we learn to sing the rainbow? To keep history intact…

    Maybe a blank fortune cookie message means you can create whatever you like….
    Love the sunset photo! Where is the one from Venus?

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World! Sunsets (and rises) are magnificent. Nice way to share your colo(u)r preferences! Sunset on Venus? If it is purple OR violet OR plum, lilac or any of the other assorted ‘purples’ in the world, I wanna live on Venus. Your answer to the childhood question was perfect. Who really wants to do that (unless they take back current memories and know a lot of stuff the world at the time might not be ready for)? I thought E.S. did a really spectacular job with the questions, he channels the critters right well, doesn’t he? Thanks for participating and the blank fortune? Extra lucky. Because you can write your own (which we all do, but you get an extra shot at it). Have a great week!

      You have a good week too!

    Cornish clotted cream: the alliteration, the ambiguity, the sound of happiness!

      We certainly can’t be removing colours from our rainbows 🙂
