Monday has once agained rolled around, and you know what that means, boys and girls. It’s Melanie’s Share Your World time. Those of you who know Melanie know that she’s had a rough go of it, and I’m glad that, with all she’s had to deal with, she is still able to do her Share Your World prompt. Hopefully our answers to her questions will bring a smile to her heart.
What, in your opinion, is the point to life?
I’ve been hanging out around this place for seven decades and I still have yet to figure that out — at least not what the point of my life is. But if someday I have an epiphany and discover what it is, I’ll be sure to let you know.
What was your most recent lie? You don’t have to get really specific obviously.
“This homemade kale soup you made, sweetheart, is delicious.”
What country do you consider the strangest? (it’s all In fun folks, ALL countries may seem strange to outsiders)
Greenland. It’s a large country mostly covered with ice and snow and yet some optimistic soul named it Greenland. It has a total population of only around 56,000 human inhabitants even though, in terms of land mass, it’s the 12th largest country in the world. And no one from Greenland has ever visited my blog.
What’s your funniest story involving a car?
Just for shits and giggles, I bought a used, 1959 Jaguar XK150. It was drivable, but just barely. In the 3 years I owned it, it spent about 2 3/4 years in the shop of a self-proclaimed Jaguar mechanic who called himself “Jaguar Joe.” I paid Jaguar Joe more than I paid for the car in the first place, and he was never able to get it to run for more than a week or two at a time. I finally ended up just letting him keep the damn thing.
Do you have something you’re very thankful for or that showed immense kindness toward yourself or someone?
Not really. Tune in again next week for the next installment of
As the World Turns, I mean Share Your World.
