SYW: On Waiting, Refrigerators, Speaking, and Elevators

I love starting the new week with Melanie’s Share Your World!

Questions:

WHERE DO YOU NOT MIND WAITING?
I don’t mind waiting almost anywhere if I have either a charged phone or tablet, or a book with me. If I’m in the middle of a good book, I actually LIKE waiting, so I have a good reason to read!  I’m fine if I’m not overheated or in a crowd of people.

WHAT IS IN YOUR FRIDGE RIGHT NOW?
It’s chock full of lots of leftovers and produce we purchased yesterday at the farmer’s market. The door shelves have drinks and condiments. There is literally no room in there for even one item more!

IF YOU COULD ONLY SPEAK ONE WORD TODAY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Wow, that’s hard – I can’t imagine only being able to say a single word in a day – it reminds me of a book I read where girls and women were restricted to only 100 words a day. 

It would depend on the day. If I were in the middle of something and wanted to be left alone, I guess I would say, “Leave!” Then I’d use gestures to get my point across.

WOULD YOU RATHER BE TRAPPED IN AN ELEVATOR FULL OF MEN WITH BO OR WITH THREE SOAKED DOGS? (THIS ASSUMES THERE IS NO COVID-19.)
COVID-19 or not, I would probably prefer the dogs. Men (or women) with B.O. is absolutely the worst smell in the world – it makes me gag! In fact, I even thought of it a couple of weeks ago when one of the SYW questions was what is the worst smell.

GRATITUDE:
I am grateful for all the people in society who wear masks in public and maintain 6 feet of distance. These are the people who care about others and realize that when living in a society, one has rights but also responsibilities. Taking these simple measures during a pandemic makes sense and is for the well-being of all.

I am also grateful for Mary Trump, whose book comes out this week. Anything that will help people understand how dangerous 4 more years of Donald Trump would be, so they will vote him out of office, deserves my gratitude.

  1. I’m with you on the mask wearing and social distancing..people who obviously don’t give a damn can wander through the crowds but stay far, far away from me and mine!

    1. Which one? Vox or Mary Trump’s book? I’ve ordered the latter and waiting for it to arrive from Amazon. Before then, I plan to read Separated by Jacob Soboroff, which is about the children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. It’ll probably make me cry!

  2. Thank you for Sharing Your World and that book recommendation. Fandango wrote about an ‘interview’ (it’s more a one sided conversation in my opinion, because does T-dump ever let anyone talk if he can?) with T-dump and how he’s apparently not going to go gently into that good night, even if we do vote him out. Well I for one saw THAT coming. The dogs are definitely the choice for elevator companions, BO is NOT for the faint of heart nor sensitive of nose, is it? I think it’s disgusting and I want to ask the person why they don’t feel it necessary to bathe regularly, or else stay away from other people.. Which is unfair I guess. Some folks are allergic to most deodorants – I worked with such a poor soul (a woman) and people were always talking behind their hands about her and how smelly she was. It really hurt her feelings too. 100 words, hmm? I wonder how high the homicide rate climbed? It’s not good to keep the words IN sometimes… 😆 Have a fabulous week! 😀

    1. There are people that have a physical problem causing them to be particularly odoriferous! But most of the ones I see tend to be very overweight middle aged men. I hate it when they brush against me in the store – EWWW! The book Vox reminded me a bit of A Handmaid’s Tale. It’s about a futuristic America where all the girls and women have to wear bracelets that keep track of how many words they say, and if they go over 100, they get an electric shock that gets increasingly more painful the longer they violate the limit! It’s interesting, but I wasn’t too enthusiastic about it in the end. Better to use your reading time for Mary Trump’s book, if you can stand it!!
