Share Your World ~ 3/8/22

Melanie is back with a mixed bag of questions. And I’m tossing my two cents into the #SYW fountain. Worth 1/2 a penny or less due to inflation.


What’s The Strangest Thing In Your Refrigerator? Hmm. Well ya know I have to go look. Be right back!

I’m back. We have the usual stuff, pretty boring. So it has to be my acidophilus which is an over-the-counter probiotic that requires refrigeration after opening. I’m not even sure the stuff works but it was recommended probably 15 years ago and I’m still taking it.

Would You Rather Hear The Music Of Johann Sebastian Bach Played By A Barbershop Quartet, Or A Heavy Metal Band? Hmmm, BOTH! Why do we have to pick? The San Francisco Symphony did a concert with Metallica songs and that was beautiful and down right trippy. SO if I have to pick, heavy metal … I guess.

If You Could Erase One Event From History, Which One Would You Erase? Now that’s a loaded question. Considering the butterfly effect. If I take out a tragic horror show, there might be an even worse event to take its’ place. Nun uh, no way. Too much responsibility. Glad this is only theoretical. Whew!

If Your Food Is Bad At A Restaurant, Do You Say Something? No because a friend of a friend who worked in a restaurant for years told us what happens behind the kitchen door. Plus B simply doesn’t have the ability to complain in his DNA. Me? I’d restrain myself to avoid embarrassing him. And now in the pandemic where people are just trying to eek out a living in the service industry if they haven’t already left it completely, we we’ll just move along. Someone told me a long time ago to vote with my feet. If the service and/or food is bad, we never go back. Actions speak louder than words or some such pearls of wisdom.

GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional):

On one side of the earth we’re facing upcoming Spring, and on the other Autumn.   What positive or uplifting thought do these changes bring to you? For us spring is renewal. Every year in February, we buy and plant trees. And fertilize the ones we have which is a pretty big process that takes both of us.

We’ve done this since 2000 when we moved in here. Some of the trees didn’t make it, freeze got a few and two with some sort of oak disease. But our cypress is a beauty, biggest of the bunch despite not being an original. This year we planted another peach tree, up to 4 now. A new orange tree to replace the one that froze in Feb 2021 and a lime tree to replace an almond tree that never rooted for some unknown reason.

Now that it is March, we’re getting the garden ready. This weekend we’ll be planting everything. Or B will because he is the one with the green thumb. He plants and I gather when the time comes.

  1. Nice answers. I agree with the food issue. If it’s not done the way you want, don’t go back. We have some friends who send back things and it is kind of embarrassing for the whole table, IMO.

  2. Thank you Jilly for Sharing Your World! Does the acidophilus work pretty well then? I think most people have something in their refrigerator that would appear odd to other people – mine is full of diabetic supplies – insulin and stuff that needs to be tossed out because it has expired. I’ve even put my meter in there when the cleaner was over and I got caught short and didn’t know where to stash it that I wouldn’t lose it. 😄 I’ve heard about that ‘behind the kitchen door’ stuff and wonder if it’s true at least part of the time? I have a mouth and if I’m paying the outrageous prices that are charged, they’re going to make it my way or I don’t pay (nor return). But it is very wise to choose one’s battles too and with Covid I don’t eat out any more anyway. Ah! The butterfly effect. Yeah, that’d scare me too. Your tree planting and gardening efforts sound great! Here’s to wonderful success! Have a splendid week! 🙂

    1. The acidophilus is probably a placebo effect. I keep on taking it since it can’t hurt. I hope not anyway. I hope you have a splendid week too!


  3. I totally agree about a restaurant. I’m afraid to complain because of retaliation (though I will nicely ask for more napkins or water or whatever). If the food is bad, don’t return!
