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 for.
This week, Cee asked:
Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.) Today, Monday December 28, 2015 will be partly cloudy with a chance of a smile just after sunset, when I walk in the door at home! Last night was a very difficult night for sleeping, no idea why, but I am dragging today. Hopefully, when I see my wife, Lynn, this evening, everything will again be fine again.
What is most memorable about your high school years? I try not to dwell upon my high school years. They were too traumatic and overly dramatic. It has taken me years to evolve from that depressed, insecure, schoolboy to this man of usually cheerful, usually optimistic demeanor. In fact, I have no really solid memories of my youth until approximately 7 years ago.
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry? Well, if you count Alcatraz Island- affectionately known as the Rock- I would have to say no. I do have some sand that my father brought back from his recent trip to Coney Island in New York, though.
Complete this sentence: I like watching… This reminds me of a hilariously understated Peter Sellars in the movie Being There, when he tells Shirley MacLaine “I like to watch” and she assumes he means sex rather than television. In that sense, I do not like to watch, either sex or TV. I do like to watch the sun set and the moon rise, though. As for watching the sun rise, I am still a bit too lazy for that.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I can only say I am grateful that Lynn received a call from her doctor this morning telling us she is in relatively fine health and she should be with us for a few more years to come. It was quite the scare that we had to deal with over Christmas. As for what I am looking forward to in this next week? A shortened work week and the hope that Lynn forgets it is New Year’s Eve and does not ask to go on the Strip to watch the fireworks. I hate to watch!
