WORLD-SHARING 2.02.4 – Marilyn Armstrong

Share Your World – July 9, 2018

What would you name the autobiography of your life?


Which do you prefer sweet, salty or buttery?

All of the above, in varying combinations. I do not, however, like “sweet-salty” combinations such as chocolate covered salty pretzels. I do like sweet-bitter combinations like bitter orange, lemon … to a point. I’m not an extremist. I don’t like intensely bitter orange or super-soured lemon. I sort of appreciate subtlety in foods.

As for buttery? Not so much these days. When I was younger and didn’t mind fatty foods, I was more butter-inclined. Fonder of “slathered in butter.” Not much these days. I’m more temperate. I like a little bit of this, that, and the other thing. Too much of any single thing is … well … too much of a good thing.

What’s the finest education?

For what? Law? Medicine? Software Engineering? Physics? High Mathematics? History? Economics?

Even amongst the top schools for each subject, you could argue which was which THE school. Do you like MIT or Cal Tech? Harvard or Yale? Cambridge or the Sorbonne? Julliard? Oberlin?

I think the best education for me or you would be the best we could get out of what happens to be available. I’ve met some really ignorant PhDers and some incredibly smart people without any formal education.

Still, that being said, a really excellent education at a top school for whatever you are studying can’t possibly hurt, right? So if you can get into the right school, definitely go. And I don’t mean online. I mean GO. Because there’s more to college than classes.

What made you smile this past week?

When we got home from the hospital — it was a long day — I found a package. It was the fancy Red Sox 2018 shirt I ordered for Garry. A bit more than I would normally spend on a shirt, but I thought he needed something to perk up his world. He has been so worried about this surgery, he needed an “upper” and I thought this would be it.

You think? It certainly made Garry smile  😎

      1. What a GREAT shirt. Thank you, Marilyn. Plan to wear it on surgery day. It’ll give folks something to remember.


      1. it’s a little “busy” for me but I like it. No one can doubt my beisbol loyalty. I always think of those shirts as the kind Ernie “Fatso Judson” Borgnine wore in “From Here To Eternity”.


    1. Dral, I have a “salt” tooth. love pretzels, etc, Fresh, hot & salty pretzels — yummy. Then, drink a gallon of sweet leomonade. Oy!

      Salted caramel? I think not.

      We just had our first go at Pizza with pineapples, sausages and bacon. It was the only available style for the Pizza with coupons… Pineapples?? Think, I’ll pass. I like Pizza with anchovies. Hold the applause.

    1. Daily, i’m wondering if any one will notice it. People wear such garish stuff complemented by rings in all their body orifices. I’ll probably look mundane.
