SHARE MY WORLD AS OCTOBER MOVES ALONG

Share Your World 10-5-2020

How can it be the tenth month of the year? What happened? Oh, right. Everything happened. This was the year that was in every sense of the world.

Whatever became of “National Brotherhood Week?” It was a week and then it went away. I guess we just didn’t have sufficient support for it. Today it would be a national joke. Maybe it always was.


Questions:

When was the last time you tried something new?  How did that go for you?

I am in the midst of learning Mexican food. Not “real” Mexican food because I live in Massachusetts and “real Mexican” would require at least a cookbook and we are weak on that. A quality Mexican (not Tex-Mex) restaurant — remember restaurants? — would be helpful too. It gives one a taste to work from. An oral idea, so to speak.

I used to cook a lot of Chinese, but I think I wore out the whole Chinese thing so now, it’s Mexican. At least the ingredients are easier to find. The joy of Burritos and Fajitas. Today, it’s fajitas. I should probably check and make sure I have all the ingredients. When what you make for dinner — and you don’t even like cooking — is your the most creative part of your day, something is missing in your life.

But the pizza last night was GREAT.

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

Pray to Allah but tie your camel.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

Today I feel like about 742. I felt like a few hundred years younger yesterday, but who knows what tomorrow might bring?

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question: Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

Yes, but not voluntarily. Some homeless person froze to death in my parking lot when I lived in Lynn. It was not a joyful moment.

  2. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World as October moves ‘in’. Good luck on the Mexican food cookery. That’s a new thing that can be really delicious (even if it’s ‘gringo’-Mex food, as one of my siblings (from California) claims Utah Mexican to be). You just find the level of heat you like (chili powder versus ground chili peppers, how much cumin, etc) and then enjoy! Or there’s always the sauce packets by McCormick and those people. Fajita sauce etc.. Make a decent sauce for the veggies and meat. Corn versus flour tortillas (I prefer corn personally). Did you discover the frozen person? How awful! They get at least one who freezes per year out here. Just the city where the person dies varies..but I always wonder why the transient population stay in Utah in the wintertime. It’s too cold here. Sounds like the same situation in Massachusetts. Great answers to all the questions, and I’m very grateful you chimed in today! Take care Marilyn! ❤

    • Last night it was Fajitas, which weren’t very hot, but tonight I think it is burritos … a bit hotter. I’m not a great measurer and I’m a bit of an over-spicer.

      Hey, as non Mexican as Utah may be, trust me that New England is much, much less Mexican. Even Mexican restaurants are barely Mexican and you don’t want to even THINK about our Chinese food. It’s an embarrassment.
