It’s Monday and the start of a brand new week. And that means it’s also time for Melanie’s Share a Your World prompt. So, without further ado….
If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make them?
No one wants to make mistakes, and mistakes can be costly. But the fact is that everyone makes mistakes and if you’re going to make one, it’s best to learn from it so that at least you don’t make the same mistake twice. I just hope that American voters will remember that when they cast their ballots this November.
How do we know that pleasure is good and pain is bad?
Because pleasure feels good and pain feels bad? Duh! Well, unless you’re into S&M, that is, and if you are, you are one sick sonofabitch, in my humble opinion.
What problem or situation did TV / movies make you think would be common, but when you grew up you found out it wasn’t?
That’s easy. Parents who sleep in separate twin beds, like Ozzie & Harriet or the Beaver’s parents.
If you drive, do you speed when no one is watching? Have you ever run a red light late at night on purpose, particularly if it doesn’t seem to change very quickly? If you don’t drive, what minor law may you have broken?
I have been known to be heavy-footed, so I speed most of the time except in my neighborhood where kids are playing, riding bikes, and people are walking their dogs. I always drive at or below the speed limits in such neighborhoods. And yes, I have occasionally run a red light. But these days, with cameras mounted at many intersections, I don’t anymore.
