It’s Monday and that means that Melanie has posted another edition of Share Your World. Today’s SYW questions are a rather eclectic bunch.
Is it ever okay to commit a crime? Please explain.
Okay, according to Wikipedia, “The term ‘crime’ does not, in modern criminal law, have any simple and universally accepted definition.” There are crimes that are “unlawful acts punishable by a state or other authority,” and there are those that are shameful, such as, “It’s a crime that the United States has an inept buffoon and an outright moron who thinks only of himself and lacks any degree of empathy as its president.”
Generally speaking, it’s not okay to commit a crime. That said, from a personal perspective, I am guilty of criminal behavior. Before marijuana for recreational use was legalized in my state, I used it. I often drive above the posted speed limits on highways. I sometimes tell little white lies, either to protect myself or to spare another’s feelings (“No, sweetie, those jeans don’t make you look fat.”). But I’ve never committed a felonious crime. At least not that I know of.
Do you deal with change well? (Not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did any how. )
Generally, yes, I deal well with change. But I have to say that as I’ve gotten older, I don’t embrace change solely for the sake of change. If it ain’t broke, I say, don’t fix it. I wish the folks at WordPress would spend more time fixing the things that are broke instead of rolling out “new and improved” and often totally unnecessary changes.
Do you like birds? The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food?
Sure. What’s not to like about birds? They’re delicious.
What’s the least used item of clothing you own?
Now that I’m retired, it’s my suits, ties, and dress shoes.
If you care to share, what are you grateful for?
I’m grateful for waking up this morning, the day WordPress was to have retired its Classic editor in favor of the “new and improved” Block editor, and finding that the Classic editor is still there and that I could use it to create this post.
