Truthful Tuesday — Hobbies

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know what we do to pass the time. He asks us us:

With the exception of blogging (assuming it’s a hobby and not your profession), do you have any unique hobbies or pastimes?

Well, to be honest, with the exception of blogging, I have no hobbies nor pastimes.

I retired almost four years ago. A few weeks ago I got a call from a former work associate who is about to retire. He asked me how I like being retired and what I do to pass the time. I said, “I love being retired and I blog.”

He said, “But what do you do to pass the time?”

I said, “I told you. I blog.”

He said, “Don’t you have any hobbies?”

I said, “I blog. That’s my hobby.”

“That’s it?” he asked.

“Well, I watch TV, I read, I play cards and backgammon and Yahtzee with my wife, I eat, I sleep, but mostly I blog.”

He said, “Hmm. What do you blog about?”

I said, “Oh, this, that, and the other.

    What a great conversation! I hope your former work associate will catch the blogging thing too.

    I can relate to this. Blogging is a hobby and a very pleasant way to pass the time

    I have had a lot of similar conversations. But by now, everyone I know has read at least SOME of Serendipity. It’s been around a while already. I don’t have to write letter. People just check in on the blog and know what’s going on. A diary without gory details — and LOTS of pictures 🙂

    Besides, short of gardening, what hobbies are we SUPPOSED to have?

    Did you convince him to start blogging when he retires?

      I don’t know. Last I heard from him he was still thinking about it.
