If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make them?

Just because we learn from our mistakes doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to avoid making mistakes. Trust me. You and me will make plenty of mistakes without working at making more or failing to worry about it.

How do we know that pleasure is good and pain is bad?

Pain hurts. Pleasure doesn’t.

What problem or situation did TV/movies make you think would be common, but when you grew up you found out it wasn’t?

I never thought I’d have to clean my own house. On television or the movies, houses are always perfectly clean. No dust bunnies. Everything is bright and shiny.

Don’t you just love the whole “housekeeping” outfit?

Eventually, reality banged me on the head. Not only was I going to clean, but I wasn’t going to do it while wearing high-heels and makeup.

If you drive, do you speed when no one is watching?   Have you ever run a red light late at night on purpose, particularly if it doesn’t seem to change very quickly?   If you don’t drive, what minor law may you have broken?

I used to speed. Now I don’t drive or at least, haven’t had to drive. I haven’t done anything illegal in years. I find that terribly depressing.

  1. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World! I always enjoy your forthright answers and perspective. I never did ‘get’ how those women got a darned thing done…trying to clean a house in high heels and full make up (not to mention an outfit that probably had to be dry cleaned) was just so silly to me. My mother had a very casual attitude towards house work anyway and at least in my youth I was determined to be the exact opposite of her. Funny how things turn out..I now firmly believe in the “housework – it’s just rearranging the dust” attitude. I haven’t seen nor read a lot from you lately, I hope you and Garry and the dogs are all well?
