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


Here are her questions for the week:

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

Actually, I don’t really sleep much as it is, so I’d kinda prefer to maintain what little get.

What job would you be terrible at?

Sales!!!  Waayyyyyy too much peopling, bullshitting, and schmoozing for me.  I’d suck beyond all sucking at it.

When was the last time you climbed a tree?

This past October.  Fall Break in Long Beach, MS, at CJ’s (my MIL that is passed, but we still have her house) with my SIL and niece and nephew.  Behind the house is CJ’s tree.

It’s a very old live oak, and CJ had always said it was the reason she bought the house in the first place.  This pic doesn’t do it justice, and the branches extend down towards the ground, so it begs to be climbed.

Do you count your steps? 

Nope.  But I’m on my feet and moving all day long at work, so I’d bet it’s usually a shitload.

Bonus question (just because it’s really silly)   What’s the dumbest way you’ve injured yourself?

Hmmm.  That’s kind of a long list, actually.

One that pops to mind is busting my head open on the bottom of a pool, diving from a hot tub full of people into what I thought was 5ft of water….but was only 3ft.  Spring Break,  South Padre Island.  I’ll never forget how that impact felt.  I stumbled up onto the pool deck and sat down to regain my bearings.  My head was gushing blood, required a large number of stitches, oh, and it happened on the second day of the trip.  It’s a wonder I didn’t break my neck, as it was a direct shot, and an ass-kicking jolt.


My songs of the day are:

”No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn” by Beastie Boys

”Climbing” by Meat Puppets

”Big Dumb Guy” by Carley Simon

”Two Steps From The End” by Robert Cray

”Climbing To The Moon” by Eels

”How To Be Dumb” by Elvis Costello

”Every Step” by Mavis Staples

”Love For Sale” by Marvin Gaye

  4. Thanks for Sharing Your World with us, and that magnificent tree! Yes, it does just beg to be climbed. I used to love climbing trees, prior to my legs becoming so wonky that doing it was beyond stupid. I’d have fallen out and broken something else probably. But that tree sure reminds me of the great time one can have in a good climbing tree…the peace and the connection with nature. If you listen carefully, you might hear the tree ‘speak’ too. Great musical selection again this week! I’m going to respectfully borrow the practice today on my Sunday Sparks..there are a few songs to be shared. Thanks! 🙂

  7. What a great tree! I loved climbing trees. What a horrible way to start a vacation, and I’m glad you survived.

  8. OMG, you are very lucky you didn’t break your neck! The son of a friend of mine broke his diving into a hotel pool in Mexico ON HIS WEDDING NIGHT!!! Sadly, he’s been a paraplegic ever since.

  10. Great tree! Gimme Three Steps by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The diving incident reminds me of the group Crash Test Dummies as a whole–
