Sharing My World 30-01-2022

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

What is one topic you love to talk about?
My mind has suddenly gone blank. Which probably means there isn’t anything specific. I expect I’m a conversation leech, latching onto other people’s conversations and making them my own. You know, that guy at the party who steams in and arrogantly offers unsolicited advice on a topic he knows nothing about.

Suppose there was a magical wizard standing right in front of you and you could turn your life into anything you wanted, what would you do?
Ooh, I’d get him to make me half an inch taller. That would sort me out nicely.

Or maybe my “usual” – Lord Master of the Universe. Hard to choose between those two.

Could you adjust to life without any internet?
Yes. We never had any of that when I was growing up. I’d prefer we had it, but I could adjust to life without it. I’m assuming here the “World Wide Web” rather than the “internet”. Obviously the WWW needs the internet to work, but the internet’s just wires and devices, so not so useful by itself.

What do you think is unique about the human โ€˜animalโ€™ (homo sapiens)?
I used to think it was it was our “ability” to hurt others “just because”, but apparently various animal species do that as well so we’ve lost our one defining unique feature.

So, um… wearing clothes?

    We uniquely worry about things we have no control over. Do other species? I shall worry about that all day!

      I bet dogs worry about if their human masters will feed them, and cats worry about not being big enough to slaughter their human masters.

    Humans wear clothes? Hmmm, no wonder I get strange looks when I go outside…

    I’m not sure, but I think gaining half an inch in height would automatically make you Lord Master of the Universe.
    Oh, no! I’ve always said animals were better than people and now you tell me they actually are the same?!?

      Maybe I’ll try wearing platform shoes in that case…
      I think by and large animals are better. I think the more intelligent they are, the nastier they become ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Thanks Alistair for another winning Share Your World! Don’t be too hard on yourself about the convo thing…not everyone is a chatty person, especially if they don’t know other folks at whatever gathering very well. I’m sure (absolutely positive) that you hold your own very well indeed! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’ve explained why some folks don’t like wearing clothes – they want to ‘go back to nature’ apparently! ๐Ÿ˜‰ heh heh I suspect your Lord Master title is safe and tailored just for you! Have a great week!

    Couldn’t you be a half inch taller Lord if the Universe? Or is that redundant?

      It’s such a tough choice. I hope he gives me some time to think about it.
