Share Your World — The Month’s End

SYWHere’s Melanie’s latest Share Your World prompt, and the last one for April 2019. So let’s see what she wants us to share and how much I’m willing to go along with sharing.

If you could interview anyone from your life, living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be and why?

It would be my father. As I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts, I was too self-absorbed when I was young and when he was still alive to ask him to tell me stories about his youth. He was born in the Ukraine and ended up coming to America when he was around 14 years old, but I don’t know any of the details of his life before reaching the U.S. or his early days in this country. I really regret that.

As a child, did you have a nickname?  Did you carry that with you throughout life or was it only in childhood that you used it?

My father used to call me “Butch,” as did some of my friends, but it never transcended into my adult life. 

Give us three words that describe you:

Old, liberal, young at heart.

Sneaking into a second movie at the theater (if you go to a movie house)? Is that wrong or just harmless ‘fun’?

It’s not something I’ve ever done, but it doesn’t sound to me like a heinous crime.

If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or forward into the future?Why?

B63230AC-5ECE-412D-9074-8D8C205F2E8FIf I had a Wayback Machine, and Sherman and Mr. Peabody could go with me, I’d visit the past. To me, the future looks pretty bleak.

What were you thankful for during April?

That no one I know personally died.

    When we were kids, if the movie wasn’t crowded, you could stay there all day and no one minded. Basically, you could stay until your butt hurt. I was usually finished after two features and a cartoon, but I knew kids who could spend a whole day there. They had better butts than me.

    I went to another feature after the one I’d paid to see only once in my life… because the girl I was with acted like it was the thing to do. I’d never even thought of it. But then, I hardly ever went to movies at the theatre at all. I’m gonna guess she learned the idea from her parents. It did give her mother more time before picking us up. To me, it was harmless fun (while I was not motivated to do it again), but I can see that it could be problematic.

    Thanks Fandango for Sharing Your World. That first question is getting quite a lot of ‘buzz’. In the LDS faith we are encouraged to keep journals. And personally I think it’s a grand idea, because then one’s personal history isn’t lost. Future generations can read about what it was like to live in XX time and to be whomever. I read a portion of my paternal grandfather’s journal. He wrote about what it was like to live in 1880 whatever and to be a child who followed his mother around to mining camps where she was the cook. What it was like to be the first son of the third wife of a polygamist. Fascinating.

    Good answers. I would talk to my mom or dad. Probably my mom as I learned I had a half brother I never knew about when she was already in serious health problems and I couldn’t ask about him.
