Share Your World: January 28, 2019

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


Here are her questions for the week:

Are you thin or thick skinned?   Are you easily offended or tend to let it just roll off your back like a duck does with water?

I’m not easily offended, no.  But, when I truly am, by an absolutely asinine asshatish comment, I usually make my displeasure known.

How important are morals in a healthy society? What are the most important morals for citizens to have?  (Credit to Rory for this question)

Morals are extremely important in any society, at least ones where people can live with a reasonable sense of safety.  Without morals, society would dissolve into chaos…and quickly.  In my opinion, the most important moral for members of a society to possess is simple: treat others the way you’d like them to treat you.  It seems really basic.  A very easily attainable way of life. I can’t figure out why we can’t all just get along.

What will your epitaph be?

Hell if I know.  Hopefully it will be something positive, like he was a great dad and husband and friend.  Loved life and living it.  Took chances, fucked up royally…more than once…, felt elation and despair, amazement and frustration, love and loss. Yet, he ended up right where he belonged.

Or, it may just say, “Damn, what a long, strange trip it’d been!”

(I don’t admire either/or questions much, which is why you won’t see ‘em often.  Today is an exception)  French toast, pancakes or waffles?

I like them all.  Hot, real butter, maple syrup.  Confectioners sugar on the French toast, of course.  But, given the choice, I’d probably pick waffles.  I love the crunchy with the soft and buttery.  They’re a Sunday staple here.

What were you grateful for this past week?

We had some pretty intense weather last week, as a majority of the midwest, and now the northeast, can also attest to.  Tuesday and Wednesday saw actual air temps of -5F and wind chills of -20F.  It was brutal.  This old farmhouse was not built to withstand that type of extreme cold, and relentless wind gusts.  That said, I’m grateful for is that we didn’t suffer any catastrophic pipe bursts or power failure.  Our kitchen sink drain froze, which prevented use of the dishwasher as well, but no significant damage incurred.  All is well now, and it will be 60F today, so I’m also grateful that the evil “polar vortex” was only a brief blast, not a prolonged, 2 week barrage.


My songs of the day are:

”She’s So Cold” by The Rolling Stones

“Re-Pete Offender” by They Might Be Giants

”Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson

“Truckin’” by Grateful Dead

”Cold Cold Cold” by Cage The Elephant

“Moral Majority” by Dead Kennedys

”Fire On The Mountain” by Grateful Dead

”In The Cold, Cold Night” by The White Stripes

  5. Treat others the same way as you want to be treated is a good thought to live by. I think it’s working fairly good. I just wish more of us living with that in our minds. Then world peace would be possible 🙂
