SHARING MY WORLD

Share Your World – 2014 Week 8

Another week, more interesting questions. Next week today, I’ll be in the hospital. Let’s have fun while I can.

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

I’ll take the $10,000 right now (if it’s tax-free, even better) because I could pay the bills for all the doctors, get some repairs done on the house and generally not wind up living in the car before the year is out. Such a tease you are. You aren’t giving me any money really … are you? Just asking.

When you’re 90 years old, what will matter most to you?

Teeth. I would like to still have some teeth. Oh, and eyeglasses. Need them too.

Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

Crystallized ginger. What? You heard me. I like it. No one else does, but you don’t have to eat it.

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

Um, I used to know where it is. Was. I’m not sure. But I have a rain jacket and hat. I know where that is. At least the jacket. Not so much the hat.

  1. I love crystallized ginger, although I can only eat 5 or 6 at a time. If I could have only one kind of candy, I’d go for See’s chocolates.

    Seattle is known for its rain, but most of us don’t use umbrellas–It doesn’t rain very hard. We do like to have hoods on our jackets, though. You don’t have to keep track of your hood.

    1. You can’t really use umbrellas around here anyway. Too windy. And I need my hands for other things. I should get a rain jacket with a hood. That’s a better way.

      I LOVE crystallized ginger, but yes, a few pieces go a long way. But I love the tang of it. It’s an adult candy.

  2. I will go as far as to have ginger tea and grate some fresh ginger into some dishes that I make, and that’s it. The word “gingerly” exists for a reason, you know.

  3. My son loves crystallized ginger. He can join you on the campaign to make that the sole candy in the world. 😉

  4. Hmmmm, a week. ’tis interesting, the turns our lives take. A year ago, I didn’t even know ya. Now, because of a blog relationship you have with a beloved, I’ve already lined up my candles for your upcoming parasol event. There will be some hella strong vibes sent your way in the next and upcoming. Know you are thought of most well… by the oddest of followers. 😉 And huge huggers for Mr. G. He will need them.

    1. If you are anything like me, you put it someplace safe. If I leave things in the middle of the coffee table, I can always find them. It’s when I put them someplace safe that they disappear — sometimes forever.

  5. “$100,000 to give to strangers” ??
    We always think that giving something to someone is a great thing … sometimes it’s the opposite.
    But maybe the good intention erases any errors.
