Sharing My World 16-05-2022

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

Do you become discouraged by the annual “Blogging Ennui” phenomenon that comes around every year? (it’s early this year IMO) (blogging ennui means (to me) a distinct slow down in writing and participation, which lasts an indefinite period of time).
I admit I hadn’t really noticed. But if it’s nice weather, it’s good that people are outside enjoying the sun!

If you were in a room filled with you and your doppelganger (someone who looks exactly like you do. Supposedly everyone has at least one out there in the world) and 2 billion dollars, what would you do? What do you think your doppelganger would do?
My doppelganger wouldn’t do anything. Not after I’d clocked him over the head and run off with the cash.

A building is burning. You have time to either save a child trapped inside or a valuable painting which you would then sell, using the money to save 20 children from starvation. What would you do and why?
I would stand there thinking “Hmm, I have time to save that kid or that painting. But there’s no way I’m running into that burning building.”

What’s your opinion of yams or sweet potatoes?
I’ve never had a yam. I like sweet potatoes though. They’re great if you add some cumin and turmeric and beans or whatever and make a sort of burger.

This story made me laugh. It’s from the BBC News website. Someone appears to have missed an apostrophe “s”. It’s a story about some chicken products being recalled from supermarkets after a salmonella outbreak at the factory.

    Cooked children, eh? There is no way I am making a joke about not getting them out of that burning building.

      I understand that reference! Because I just Googled it…

        It’s one of the few things I remember from my Brit Lit class. Even in high school, I was a bad human…

    Hilarious answers! 😀 Please tell me you are not adding cooked children to the sweet potato burgers.

      I’m still working on the consistency but yes, very tasty 🙂

    Children cooked well-done with a side of sweet potatoes! My goodness I’m hungry.

      Just don’t try to order it if you phone for takeaway. You might get a visit from the local constabulary instead 🙂
