I’ve enjoyed reading other bloggers’ responses to Cee Neuner’s Share Your World weekly prompt, but I’ve never actually participated. But this week’s SYW questions are irresistible. They are:
If aliens landed on earth tomorrow and offered to take you home with them, would you go? Sure. It’s been a long time since anyone has wanted to poke and probe my body, so why not?
How tall are you? Are you satisfied with your height? I used to be 6’1, but I’ve shrunk to around 5’10-1/2. I guess that’s what happens when you get older (sigh). Am I satisfied? Well, I’m still able to stand erect, so yeah. I’d rather be 5’10-1/2 vertically than 6’1 horizontally (i.e., six feet under).
Do you think you could live without your smartphone (or other technology item) for 24 hours? Not a chance. My iPhone is my lifeline. I use it for my blog (writing, reading, and commenting), to get my news, to get the sports scores, to buy things online, to read books I’ve downloaded, and to play solitaire when I get bored. I use my weather app, my Google Maps app, my iTunes app, my Notes app to create shopping lists, my calendar app, the timer, a bunch of photo apps. Omigod, I can’t inagine going for 24 solid hours without my iPhone…unless I was in a coma.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? That I haven’t yet been abducted by aliens, haven’t shrunk another half inch, and haven’t had to give up my iPhone for 24 hours.
Also when Bill Maher quipped about what the conservative right believes: “Life begins at conception and ends at the Rio Grande.” that made me smile and cringe at the same time.
You didn’t really think I’d write a whole post without saying something political, did you?
