SYW: Colors, Back to the Future, Holiday Parties

UNVARNISHED QUESTIONS from Melanie’s weekly Share Your World!

If you had the power to strike one person in your life permanently speechless, who would it be? (Real names aren’t necessary, vague descriptions are fine… and yes, this is being asked in fun and not to be mean). Donald Trump


If you could relive your childhood over again, what’s one thing from this modern world world today you’d want to take back with you?
My computer/word processor. Writing would have been so much easier!

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple are the standard colors of the rainbow.
Name something you love (or greatly admire/appreciate) for all six major colors of the rainbow! (Sorry indigo, you’re just blue-purple.  Hot pink?  You’re too flashy!)

Red: apples and tomatoes – because they are delicious to eat!
Orange: Zinnias and Dahlias – they are pretty and bright!
Yellow: bananas – I eat one every morning! Also daffodils – because they are the harbingers of spring.
Green: trees & grass – the primary color of nature
Blue: sky – because it means the sun is shining!
Purple: my parka which used to be my sister’s but she passed away and I got many of her clothes – it still reminds me of her!
All 6: M&Ms (except purple, which is brown instead). I love to sort them by color and eat them one by one.

If you were to open the world’s most accurate fortune cookie, what would your fortune inside it read?
You will lead a good life and travel a lot, but also bear the consequences of many of your decisions.

Santa’s tired of people leaving him out cookies and milk on Christmas Eve night!  If you really wanted to get on Santa’s good side, what would you leave out for him to eat/drink instead? (This question applies whether you celebrate Christmas or not.  It’s just for fun, so imagination?  Welcome!  )

A good, cold glass of beer (Santa seems to be more of a beer person than a wine person), hot tomato vegetable soup, steak dinner, and a cup of hot chocolate!

GRATITUDE SECTION (Still optional)

What plans do you have for the upcoming holiday/celebration/festival season?    
Socializing in a party atmosphere with co-residents, even if we still need to wear masks! Also, going to plays and concerts again!

  1. Thanks, Katy for Sharing Your World! I’ve missed your posts over the past while, and hope you are doing well! Donald Trump and really any other gas bag politician have been the most popular people chosen for the gift of silence. Now to make it reality, hmmm? Your holiday plans sound fun and festive, I’m glad you can enjoy that! The rainbow list was perfect! And M&Ms? Always a great treat! 🙂 I liked the fortune you picked as well. And Santa is going to finish his trip with a full tummy, warm inside and out, and with just a bit of extra sparkle! Have a fabulous week!
