Today’s edition of Melanie’s Share Your World prompt covers everything from magic to smells to compliments that are insults to things we’ve never done.
In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to real magic?
For me, being present for and witnessing the birth of my two children was real magic.
Where is the worst smelling place you’ve been?
A friend of mine bought an old house, sight unseen, as an investment. He invited me over to take a look at the place and, upon going down to the basement, the stench of dead critters — from rats to raccoons — was so overwhelming that we both ended up tossing our cookies right then and there.
What are some things that you’ve heard in your own life, which sounded like compliments but were actually insults?
“Some men can really pull off the shaved head look,” she said. I was waiting for her to say, “…and you’re one.” But she didn’t.
What incredibly common thing have you never done?
I don’t know that there are too many “incredibly common” things that I’ve never done. That said, I’ve never scuba dived, bungee jumped, or jumped out of an airplane.
