The “New” Share Your World

SYWSo Melanie, over at Sparks From a Combustible Mind, has taken over the weekly Share Your World prompt from Cee Neuner. Here is the first of Melanie’s SYW prompts.

When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about?   If you are ‘old’ (a term with different meanings for everyone); what stories do you tell your grandchildren?

I guess, technically, I am old, but I don’t yet have any grandchildren. As I think back on the questions my kids have asked, two came from my now 36 year old son when he was 13, so in 1995. He asked, “Dad, how old were you when you got your first computer?” And he asked, “Dad, how come we don’t have any video tapes of you when you were a kid?”

When did something start out badly for you but in the end, it was great?

When I first asked the woman who ended up being my wife to go on a date and she refused.

What do you think you are much better at than you actually are?   Maybe this one’s kinda mean…thoughts?  

Um, blogging? Or maybe being handy around the house?

What would be the worst thing to hear as you are going under anesthesia before surgery?


What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

This answer is very self-serving, but it was when I found out that my blog received more views in August than ever before. Yay!

    Uh, in my opinion, for all that’s worth…your blogging is indeed something you’re ‘good’ at and can be proud of! And way to go with the numbers!! That’s always gratifying. 😉

    So why don’t we have videotapes of a young Sensei…?

      Because personal video camcorders weren’t introduced until 1983-84, well after “young Sensei” was no longer young.
