WORLD SHARING – Marilyn Armstrong

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

Pretty much what I already do. If I didn’t have to sleep AND I had more money, it would be a different question with more entertaining answers.

What job would you be terrible at?

I was the worst secretary of all time. I was really bad. I resented taking orders, resented being treated like a “second-rate” worker — and I quit after less than two weeks. I’m sure they were deeply grateful. Lord knows I was.

When was the last time you climbed a tree?

I wasn’t much of a tree climber even when I was a kid. The only time I remember, I stepped in a hornet’s nest which reduced my tree climbing enthusiasm by %150.

Do you count your steps? 


Bonus question (just because it’s really silly)   What’s the dumbest way you’ve injured yourself?

Mostly by chopping off the tip of a finger while cutting up vegetables. I’ve done it SO MANY TIMES that I’m sure my house is full of traces of my blood. For a while, no one would let me hold a sharp object.


I have also slammed my finger in my desk drawer, car door, front door, and one really BIG fire door at school. There are lots more. I just can’t remember them all.

      1. I’ll take the bonus question: Stupidest “injury”. When I walked into a glass door and fell on my keister. Yes, I was the subject of curiosity.


  1. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World. Full of birdies, doggies, Garry and all the other bits and pieces that make it lovely to hear about!! Garry may have the prize for oddest ‘injury’…from that walking into a glass door though. I’m presuming there was coccyx damage? Which is hilarious (to some unrefined folks), painful and without a ‘cure’. Sorry Garry!


    1. He was working, so it was even more entertaining. Actually, walking into a glass door isn’t unusual, which is why so many people put tape or something over the door. We had glass doors in my house when I was growing up and we finally put colored designs on the doors because SO many people walked into them.
