Share Your World — Cake, Crusts, and My Mother

Share Your WorldIt’s Monday and that means it’s time for Melanie’s Share Your World prompt. So let’s get right to it.

Can you bake a cake?

Can I? Sure, as long as I have a cake mix box with clear directions, and have all of the necessary ingredients. But as my wife often tells me, just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should do something.

What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?

Waking up in the morning (as opposed to having died in my sleep, although if I have to die, I’d rather die peacefully in my sleep than any other way).

When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not?

Yes. My mother told me a long time ago that the crusts were the most nutritious parts of the bread, and my mother would never have lied to me. Right?

What’s something your family would be surprised to learn about you?

That I’m actually a very sensitive man. My mother told me that a long time ago, and my mother would never have lied to me. Right?

    No sir, your mom would NOT have ever lied to you. I’m sure she was right about both too! I don’t know you personally, but I BET you are sensitive. Nothing wrong with that at all btw. There ought to be more sensitive men in the world… And your wife offered you some sage words. Just because one can, doesn’t mean one SHOULD. A lesson for all of us! Thanks Fandango for Sharing Your World! 🙂

    I like that bit about not dying in your sleep. I suppose we take that for granted…

    I’m a mother. I lied. Not intentionally. With the best of intentions. But it still wasn’t true.

    I may have stretched the truth occasionally to my daughter but don’t think I ever out right lied. Great answers as always.
