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

 

Here are her questions for the week:

Would (or do) you stop to help (presumably) stranded folks by the side of the road?

Yep, we do.  At the very least, to make sure they’ve either contacted someone for help, or to see if we need to call someone for them.

If it’s an accident, we definitely stop, as both my wife and have medical backgrounds.  That type of situation has actually happened to us more than flat tire or dead battery kind of stuff.  It’s always a bit hairy to come upon a bad wreck.  But, if we’re near first to happen across the scene, or witness it happen to begin with, we couldn’t not stop.

Do you think the world is less mannerly today than in past times OR are we just more touchy and manners are as they’ve always been?

I think most people have pretty good manners, and generally use them, like always.  However, there are, and always has been, a portion that are generally assholes.  Not sure why.  But, it’s fact.  Nowadays, the assholes seem to be more vocal…blatant…visible? I attribute that to the state of 24-hour news.

What happens if you’re scared half to death, TWICE?

Well, in a literal, mathematical sense, 1/2 x 1/2 does equal 1/4.  Thus, it would appear that if we’re scared only half to death in subsequent instances, we, much like cats, must have more “lives” than we realize.

If ALL the world’s a stage, where does the audience sit?

Not sure.  The moon?  UFO’s using earth as a drive-in of sorts?  The penthouse apartments of the 1%’ers?  The Mir space station?  Oh, wait….

Share your thankful comments here.   It’s a gorgeous day most places, so celebrate!

Well, in light of July 4th/Independence Day occurring this past week, I’m thankful to be from the United States, in spite of the fact that we are anything but united here.  However, that’s not uncommon. This country has always had division, of wealth and politics and religions and races and ethnicities.  Those differences are what make us….us.  Is it perfect?  Of course not.  Far from it.  But, I’m thankful to be an ingredient in this melting pot.

 

My songs of the day are:

“Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” by Micheal Jackson

”I’m Scared” by Brian May

”Mind Your Manners” by Pearl Jam

”Let’s Take It To The Stage” by Funkadelic

”Stop” by Plain White T’s

”Scared” by The Tragically Hip

“Bedside Manner” by Dawes

“Stage Fright” by The Band
