WORLD SHARING AS EVERYTHING GETS MORE AND MORE BIZARRE – Marilyn Armstrong

Share Your World 3-25-2020


Questions:

On a scale of 1-10, how strict were your parents?

My mother was very strict with me, but by the time my sister was born, she had relaxed a LOT. All the things I was NOT allowed to do, she was encouraged to do. I pointed this out to my mother who said: “Even parents need to grow up.” Many years later, I realized how true that was!My father was evil-tempered and a child beater. He had no rules. If he was in a bad mood, he beat up the nearest kid.

What wastes the most time in your day to day life?

Writing this blog!

Do they bury people with their braces* on?  (Note: The ones used to correct crooked teeth.)

I assume they leave them on unless they are asked to remove them. They usually don’t give corpses big grins anyway, so no one will see that they are wearing braces. Or for that matter, have really bad teeth.

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Round boxes are expensive to make. if they made them, I think it would double the price of your pizza. Keep life simple. Go square.

Gratitude?  

I’m glad we have a house to shelter in. There are a lot of people who don’t.

Meanwhile, be on notice, we finally have a rather large forest fire one town away in Northbridge. Every fire department in driving distance is there trying to knock it back, but it is still growing.

  2. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World! I hope they do knock back that fire. Who needs the added stress of such a thing on top of the current wagon load we already have? Take care you two and even if this blogging idea might be perceived as a ‘time waster’, I, for one, am very very glad you continue it!

  5. Oh, Marilyn, I hope that the fire doesn’t come any closer. I had been thinking about fires and how fortunate that our bushfire crisis had settled before the new rules about social distancing came into effect. Nobody needs this right now Stay safe.

  6. That was “good” reading up to the fire. Boy, nobody needs that now (or ever)…. Hope it can be contained and put out. Stay safe at your house and be well, friends.

  7. Sorry to hear you have a bad fire — you really don’t need that at this time! It’s been raining here, so we should be relatively safe from big fires for a month or more, but how does one deal with evacuation and sequestration at the same time?.
