The above photo has nothing to do with this post except that it was taken last week and is part of my world that I am sharing with you. OK? So, Cee of Cee’s Share Your World challenge wrote: “For the next three weeks the questions are from kids.  The Happy Quitter wrote me this weekend and told me about her workshop she does for neighborhood kids and the some of the kids had some suggestions for the Share your World challenge.  I realize there are more than 4 questions so feel free to answer all or only 4 questions.”

A class you wish you would have taken? I wish I would have taken a class on Class. You know? How to treat everyone as an equal. No matter color of skin nor accent, religion, sexual identity, weight or any of the rest of the sub-genres that we use to cast people as somehow lesser than ourselves.

What’s your favorite comic figure and why? Well, at first I was thinking comic book figure, but that’s not what this question seems to be asking. So there are only two comic figures, either of which I would like to be. One is Steven Wright, who deals in non-sequiturs and weird word play, Or Paula Poundstone, who can find humor in the strangest of places.

Name something you wish you could like. I wish I could like the Chihuahua that we have been pet sitting for almost two years now. It might be only one year but it seems like two. It’s a long story but it’s owner does not have a stable residence at the moment and has been traveling all this time. When we inherited her, the dog was already spoiled and needy. Even more so than me!

Tell me about your first crush / first date / first kiss. How is it that I can not remember my first date or first kiss but can remember my first crush? She was a blond goddess. Scandinavian. With long golden hair than would catch the sunlight and blind me with its reflection. She was 4 years old. I was 6.

Who was your best friend when you were 10? My best friend when I was 10 would have been me. I was my own best friend. We had a tendency to move around a lot and, when I was ten we had just moved to a new neighborhood where there were very few kids around my age. Actually. there were very few kids, period.

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology? I am a caution sign. I believe in astronomy!

  • Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week, we had to take two separate cars to the airport at 10:30 at night to pick up 4 family members who all came to visit at the same time. The week coming up? I’m looking forward to another weeknight 10 pm trip to the airport to send these people home!

  1. I love your “Share Your World’s” First, the picture is really stunning Emlio! The color and light…wow! Onto the text…your caution sign cracked me up!!! Seriously…you are so funny. OMG Steven Wright is HILARIOUS! I’ll never forget a standup I saw on a VCR tape my coworker gave me. I had insomnia one night so I decided I’d watch it and I ended up howling so hard I was crying. Thanks for sharing. Made me smile this morning.

    1. What the heck is a vcr tape? Have we gone back in time or something? They don’t even make video tape recorders anymore, do they? I’ve seen Steven Wright and Paula Poundstone twice so far in Las Vegas. They’re not Strip stars so they play the local’s casino/hotels and their shows are much cheaper.

  2. I have done a lot of long term (sometimes for remainder of life) pet sitting. It starts out as “a few days” and ends up forever. Sometimes, you find that you grow to love what you didn’t want. Not always, but mostly. Sometimes, you get a lot more attached than you ever imagined possible.

    1. This looks like it will be a long term, remainder of life, pet sitting. I have gotten a lot more detached than I ever imagined possible and now no longer want a dog of my own. This dog, and I imagine all small dogs, are needy to the point of being neurotic. And her yap is annoying. Whenever she hears the refrigerator door open she comes running, then barks when I don’t give her anything. Will she never learn?

      1. That’s so weird – apologies for asking, but are you sure no one in your house is feeding her previous bad behavior? I ask this because my parents used to have a dog when I lived with them, then I left but the dog still lived on. When my parents when away on weekends or holidays the dog stayed at my apartment, and it showed a completely different personality when it was with me. Like night and day. And it was always like this. As soon as he saw my parents arriving to pick him he turned an asshole again. He was an amazing loving dog when he was just with me, or my boyfriend, or my friends.

        1. My wife is definitely making matters worse than they were. We’ve had numerous discussions about it but neither of us will budge. So I have to bite my tongue every time she feeds the dog scraps from her plate. Oh, well!

          1. I know how you feel. It’s hard to ‘parent’ dogs when we have different priorities. I on the other hand wish my husband wished to have a dog as much as I do, but he says he’s not ready yet and our styles would also be very different. I like to train the dogs boundaries but in a fun way, but he knows nothing about having dogs at all and tends to be either too harsh or too soft… Lol married life! 😉

    I love this and can’t wait to meet you and Lynn someday!

    1. I relax you? Is that anything like saying I bore you? I’ve never been accused of being relaxing. Boring? Maybe! 🙂 Anyway, I appreciate your comment. Sometimes I think it’s a little too much, myself. But I would never consciously say something to hurt someone’s feelings. Just having fun. And believe me, if we were ever to meet in person, I WOULD bore you. You’d probably end up speaking to my wife all night!
