Sharing My World 03-10-2022

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

Favourite horror or Halloween-themed song? Or a song you rarely hear except around a holiday.
The only Halloween-themed song I can think of is “Monster Mash”. That’s quite enjoyable. A song I rarely hear except around a holiday is “Stop the Cavalry” by Jona Lewie. It’s only ever played at Christmas as it contains the line “wish I was at home for Christmas”, though it’s actually a song about the horrors of war…

Do you ever see figures in your peripheral vision?
Yes. Once I saw 3.1415927 – pi to 7 decimal places. That’s quite a figure!

Which urban legend scares you the most? (most countries have such stories โ€“ share yours if you would like to)
I can hardly think of any urban legends from my neck of the woods. There’s the “Beast of Bodmin Moor” I suppose, but that doesn’t scare me ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Youโ€™re home alone but you hear footsteps in your house, what do you do?
I would utilise my well-honed ninja assassin special forces training by running into the bathroom, locking the door and screaming out the window.

    How fortunate you are to have that training! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    …and how fortunate to have a lock on the bathroom door!

      I’m not sure how sturdy it is. Might buy me a couple of minutes…

    The neighbors will just think you ran out of toilet paper again and fail to alert the police…

      Just like in that parable “The Boy Who Cried Hygiene Supplies”…

    Too funny! ๐Ÿ˜€ Maybe the footsteps were from your peripheral hearing. Good thing you are a highly-trained ninja; adept in all situations.

      Yes, I knew that online ninja course would come in handy one day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry, no pithy comment: just a compliment that you never fail to deliver humorous responses. I look forward to these!

      Thanks, I’m glad you enjoy my answers ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am so glad you are not abusing the late night vistor by taking a threatening response. Just remember, when you scream out the window, use the lower register of your vocal range. The neighborhood will be listening, responding, and remembering… (Screams, once released, can never be taken back.)

    Granny says it’s a great song with great lyrics about the Cavalry, Draliman, and I think we all would be in the bathroom ScreamingOutLoud when we here those footsteps, and as we don’t have a window in our bathroom, it probably scares the footsteps away…or makes us even more afraid๐Ÿ˜ธDouble Pawkisses from us for you๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ’ž

    I have to admit, I’m just not that easily spooked. We’ve got a lot of people — well four, but it feels like more — living here and a dog. There are birds and squirrels outside and everything tweets and makes noise of some kind. Footsteps? I alway assume is someone who lives here or the dog.


    • October 20, 2022 at 5:29 am

      Lots of sounds around the place anyway then.


      • October 21, 2022 at 1:12 am

        Yes, but it’s not loud. Just voices, music, footsteps and the occasional loud barking of someone’s dog.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. My condolences.

    So deeply sorry for your loss, Draliman. Soft Pawkisses to comfort you and your family during this difficult time๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝโœจ
