Cee’s Share Your World – 2015 Week #47

Prompts and Challenges

Cee has many challenges. One for almost every day of the week. Monday’s is Share Your World in which she asks you:

  • To answer three random questions each week.
  • Respond to a fourth item, and a Bonus question which is always the same: “What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?”  Because we all need to be reminded that there are many things in our lives to be grateful about. 

For this week, Cee asked:

In your native language which letter or character describes you best?  Why? That would be the letter “S” for sexy, suave, sincere, sometimes silly, sometimes stupid, often sleepy. But in reality it would be for spontaneous, as my wife and I like to think we are.

What is your greatest extravagance? Wouldn’t it be nice- and terribly romantic- to say my wife? But she will not let me spend money on her. She does not want cut flowers or jewelry or clothes or shoes. Not even birthday or anniversary or Christmas cards. So I am forced to be extravagant to myself. My one extravagance used to be wine but now it seems to have become photography.

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either? I exercise at the gym three times a week and then on the weekends when we take our spontaneous trips (and I jump in and out of the car to take various photos along the way). As for my mind, we both got rid of television even before we met so we are voracious readers. Lynn tends to read about food and health and is always dispensing advice to anyone who will listen. She is the first to admit she is a hypocrite in this regard as she does not take her own advice. I tend to be all over the map, reading mysteries, biographies, histories, you name it. I even read the first two Harry Potter books when they first came out to see what all the hoopla was about.

List at least 5 things that makes you laugh. My wife, Lynn, is number one, followed by Paula Poundstone, Steven Wright, Groucho Marx, and Charlie Chaplin (in The Great Dictator). Not the usual suspects for someone my age but sophomoric humor- in movies, at least- seems too easy and insulting.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

  1. I’m thankful for every moment. Good quote. That how I’ve felt the last couple of weeks. I’m just happy at the end of a day but nothing “Super duper” is going on. It just feels good to be happy. 😀

  2. What a lovely, grateful post Emilio and I love your list. You are really an awesome person and you and your wife sounds like such a great couple. I think my hubby would say the same as well, as I also don’t like extravagance and just like your wife, I also don’t want those things.

    LOL! Tell Lynn she must not feel alone. I do the same. But that’s what advice is for and we can give it freely. Nobody ever listens though. 😆

    It’s always great to see the photos you take on your spontaneous trips and I am know I am very grateful for photographers like you who take us on a virtual trip to beautiful places. Thanks for sharing. 😀


    1. Wow, Sophia. Thank you. I’m having fun posting so you will probably see more of our spontaneous trips. This morning, over coffee, Lynn said to me “we are so much alike”. I said, “yeah, and that’s the source of all our problems”, to which she answered, “no! You’re the source of all our problems”! Good thing I’m not sensitive!

      1. I am very glad to hear that Emilio. I love these ‘virtual trips’. Much cheaper too. 😆

        Whahahahha! She sounds adorable! And of course she was just joking. That was just her way of saying just how much she loves you and you know that. LOL!
