SHARE YOUR WORLD WITH ROSES, BUT NOT THE VALENTINE EDITION – Marilyn Armstrong

This week, Melanie said: “This week, instead of gratitude/thankful for question(s), I’m asking romantic, squishy booby hug, possibly sappy and overly sugary QUESTIONS about love.”

I’m here to say at our age, don’t be silly. Holding hands, hugging, kissing … you know, the normal stuff … but the rest of that is for the “hot to trot” or “I’m in LOVE” crowd. Worse, we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day and never have. So we’ll just have to make do with the rest of the questions!

And finally, I’m not comfortable with these questions anyway. They just aren’t “me.”

Anniversary roses

What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend?

At home with good movies and each other … or with friends doing the same but as a foursome. Good weather helps!

Who do you admire most in the world?

In the world? I really have no idea. I admire a lot of writers and artists and athletes. Actors, directors, inventors. Who do I admire most? Honestly, I haven’t the slightest way to know that.

 What do you regret not doing?

Not much. Wish we’d gotten to Paris and Japan, but otherwise, it’s been a pretty good life. I regret not getting filthy rich, though given who I am, I can’t imagine how that could have happened. Some of us were not born to collect great wealth.

If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or over/in it?

If it’s little, I’ll step over it. If I can’t avoid it, I’ll tiptoe through it. Are there any other options?

  1. Valentine is also a no go for us, we don’t need it. Inwendig through my first puddles of melted snow this week with my wheelchair and did that make a mess on the apartment floor when I arrived home.

  2. I suppose it’s nice to be recognized on one special day of the year, but I’d prefer to have my significant other show me everyday in some small way, as I would. So valentines day hasn’t been a priority in my life.
