Melanie is on her own for this week’s edition of Share Your World, as Roger Shipp has apparently donned Harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility (or whatever it’s called) and cannot be seen. So let’s get right to it.
Where do you feel most at home? Please be more specific than “at home, doh” please. It could be a room in your home, a person, a location…
I feel most at home at home, duh! Oh wait, Melanie told us not to say that and to be more specific. Okay, I feel most at home at home in my family room with my wife by my side.
Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? ￼ ￼ ￼
That depends. If I’m going out to do my weekly grocery shopping and I’ll be lugging five or six full grocery bags home with me, it’s my car. If we’re going to visit our four month old grandchild at my son’s place, which is about 13 miles over hill and dale from where we live, it’s also my car. But if it’s to my local town or to a nearby park, I’d rather take my bike. As to a horse, fuhgeddaboudit.
What song would you sing on “Karoke Night” (if you were forced to do so)? ￼ ￼ ￼￼￼
Anything by The Beatles or The Eagles.But only if someone is holding a gun to my head.
University or life experience, which do you feel best prepares you for life?
A formal education (i.e., university) is supposed to teach you how to think critically. Life experiences teach you what to think. So I think a mix of book smarts and street smarts is necessary to best prepare us for whatever life throws at us.
