This week, Melanie is giving us a potpourri of questions for her Share Your World prompt. So let’s just get to it.
The first question is courtesy of the magnificent blogger, Rory (aka A Guy Called Bloke). Rory asked, “How many people in real life or on social media (including WordPress, which has become a rather social media site) do you consider good enough friends to help you hide the dead body?”
Well, it just so happens that I answered this question already when I responded to Rory’s post on my own blog. So rather than repeat it here, if you’re interested in how I responded to Rory’s question, you may click here.
Are you ready to order? What are you having (craving) right now?
I can’t say that I’m craving anything right at this moment. However, more often than not, what we order for delivery is Chinese food.
How’s the weather in YOUR neck of the woods?
The good news is that it’s sunny and it’s only going up to 88° today and by the weekend, the highs are going to only be in the 70s. And the air quality is good. So, the weather is fine.
There has always been something. Before there was something, there was only nothing. Which do you think is more likely?
Melanie states that “there has always been something.” She also states that “before there was something, there was only nothing.” She wants to know which of these diametrically opposite statements do I believe? I believe that I don’t know and I am 100% sure that no one else knows. That said, I am inclined to believe that before there was something (i.e., before the “big bang” some 13.7 billion years ago) there was absolutely nothing. And from a personal perspective, before I was something (i.e., before I was born), I was nothing; I didn’t exist. And once I’m dead, there will, again, for me, be nothing; I will cease to exist.
Attitude of Gratitude:
What is your favorite time of year? Why?
I’m not sure why this is a “gratitude” question, other than the fact that autumn is my favorite season and it’s now autumn, so I’m grateful that summer is over and winter has not yet begun. Why is autumn my favorite season? Well, the weather is delightful…not devastatingly hot nor overly cold. I’m easy to please.
