Share Your World ~ 8/24/21

I’m a day late and a dollar short. Melanie is kicking us off with the questions. I was watching a commercial for a new show with Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. A murder mystery in the form of Jessica Fletcher played by Angela Lansbury or maybe a Colombo spoof. Any who, Selena calls Martin and Steve two randos … that made me giggle. I like the word rando and use it often. Made me think random bag may actually be a good thing. Okay enough prattling about. Let’s go!

QUESTIONS      (a random bag today)  

Can you parallel park (if you drive)?   If you don’t drive, can you still skip? Why yes I can but the funny thing is I learned while doing parent taught driver’s ed with Lulu. I googled how to and watched a video that was more clear than anyone ever trying to teach me. When I took my test all those years ago, the person testing me said ah, you’ll never need that, let’s skip it. Whew! I had been practicing for months but was not very good at it and nervous as hell that day. Oh and btw, he was right. I never needed to parallel park.

Do you prefer early morning or late evening?  Or something in between? Now I am a morning person but for years I was what my mom called a night owl. Something in between would ruin my day. Up is down and down is up. Get at it early and relax in the evenings, that’s my motto.

Do you like avocados? YES!!! in all forms. I know you’re thinking Jilly there’s not much one can do with an avocado but there are quite a few options.

Is mind or matter more real? Mind makes matter more real. ha! figure that one out. lol

and a bonus ‘deep’ question just because

Are people in this current generation less or more sensitive than people from past generations? Nope. Some people are sensitive. Some people aren’t sensitive. Then there is the spectrum of people in between. Then there are those depending on the situation who may react a certain more sensitive way because of triggers. Generation has zero to do with sensitivity. Anyway that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

GRATITUDE SECTION  (as always optional)

Please feel free to share something inspiring that’s happened to you recently! I’ve been a bit down in the dumps but I took a stroll around SA Botanical Gardens this past Saturday. I was inspired by the beauty in nature. Like this picture that follows … where God dropped a paint brush. ❤

As always, more to come.

    1. haha unintentional too … our city is an urban sprawl – downtown is easier to walk and the limited parking is in pull in parking lots or garages and while there are some parallel spots they can be avoided

  1. Thank you Jilly for Sharing Your World! You have been very lucky or very blessed to never have had to parallel park. It’s one of those horrid little life ‘lessons’ – patience and skill are required, emphasis on the patience. I usually end up losing mine. 😉 I love avocados too! Just plain sliced avocado is a treat for me. But paired with chicken or cheese enchiladas or tacos, oh my goodness! They’re so versatile, but many people can’t get past the texture. As I said to Fred, “more for us!” 😀 Interesting perspective on the sensitive question. That’s very true! Have a wonderful week and I hope the Botanical Garden walk was uplifting and carries you through! 🙂
