Time for this week’s Share Your World from Sparks From A Combustible Mind.

 

Here are her questions for the week:

What Is Your Favorite Beverage?  (for those who really dislike “favorite” questions, hey, time to time, one just pops in and will not be denied).

This is kind of a tough one.  Not sure I have a favorite, per se.  I’ll go with the two drinks that I’m certain to have every single day: coffee and water.  That said, I also love sweet tea, beer, Cheerwine, Ale 8, bourbon, and cranberry juice.

What Is Your Interpretation of ‘The Golden Rule”?  Are there ramifications to breaking it?

Treat other people the same way you’d want them to treat you.  Until they prove themselves to be an asshole.  Then, all bets are off.

Sunrise person or sunset person?     

I’m a night owl by nature, so sunrises were not always easy for me to observe.  That said, as I’ve gotten older, I find I enjoy the peace and solitude of early mornings.  I have to say, I love both, as each are very different in light and color, but beautiful just the same.

Hard to pick a favorite.  I’m a fan of the “blue hour” too, just after the sun has disappeared over the horizon.

Do people in modern society anthropomorphize animals too much? 

I suppose, especially when putting little outfits on them or baby talking them.  But, in humans’ defense, they become like family members, and they do have it pretty good, in decent homes at least.  Getting treats, lots of rubs, lots of balls to fetch, lots of sleeping on the bed, etc.  Don’t feel too bad for a pampered pet.

and finally

What Were You Grateful For During the Past Week?      

Speaking of spoiled pets, we have been adopted by another rescue dog.  I knew it wouldn’t be long.

Her name is Addie.  She’s a little terrier mix…we think.  She’s the smallest dog I’ve ever had, but she’s got a big personality.  Made herself right at home from day one.  Already sleeping on the bed with us.  It’s funny how they choose us, not really the other way around.  We just went to look, not intending to adopt that night.  She came home with us that day.

 

My songs of the day are:

”Animal Kingdom” by Prince

”I Can Hear Your Feet (Sunrise)” by Childish Gambino

”Golden Rules” by Dio

”Drink New Blood” by Iggy Pop

”I’m An Animal” by Neko Case

“Waterloo Sunset” by The Kinks

”Golden Rule” by Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real

”Just One Drink” by Jack White
