Share Your World — Butt Dialing and the Five Second Rule

Share Your WorldIt’s Monday and that means Melanie is up to her Share Your World questions once again. So let’s get to sharing, shall we?

Have you ever ‘butt dialed” someone?

I do keep my iPhone in my back hip pocket, but I don’t think I’ve ever butt dialed anyone with it…at least not that I know of. There have been occasions, though when I’ve been working on a draft post on my iPhone, and I have to get up and do something in the middle of my drafting, like, perhaps, feed the cat, and I’ll stick the phone in my pants pocket. When I pull the iPhone out of my pocket, I might see some words that I didn’t type show up in the draft. So if you see a typo or a misplaced, random word in one of my posts, it’s probably because I had to feed the cat while writing it.

If you were given 1000 acres of land, what would you do with it?

That would depend upon where it was. If the land was in the middle of nowhere, I might do nothing with it. If it was an idyllic location with a babbling brook in a wooded area on the side of a mountain, I might erect a cabin on the land and go there when I wished to get away from it all. If the land was in an undeveloped suburban area, I might take the 1,000 acres and subdivide it into 200 five acre lots and sell them off to a developer, keeping one five acre lot for me and my wife, and one each for my two kids.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on-line recently?

The cartoon I posted in answer to Melanie’s first question.

Have you ever eaten something off the floor? ‘5 second’ rule applies or not (the ‘5 second rule’ is that if you pick up the dropped food within a set time frame, it’s still ‘clean’ and you can safely eat it)?

It depends upon what it is and where it dropped. But if I determine that eating something solid — like a French fry or a potato chip or a cookie — that fell on the floor is unlikely to cause severe gastrointestinal distress, I would probably eat it. That is, if my dog, when she was alive, didn’t get to it first. She was very quick.

    Very interesting answers Fandango! You’re quite the land planner.

    Thanks, Fandango for Sharing Your World! I thought that second cartoon was fairly hilarious TOO, thanks for the chuckles! (it also made me *urp* a little bit. Scraping ANYTHING off the floor, no matter how clean the floor might (appear) to be, makes my social phobia alarm sound… O_o I’m glad you felt like getting out and about a little, I’d have missed your prompts and your posts today if you truly had taken that day off…. Have a fabulous week!

    I can’t believe you’ve never “butt dialed” someone! I thought everyone had done this. But maybe you did and didn’t realize it. (The person on the other end keeps saying, “hello? Hello??…damn, somebody’s butt calling me!” and then hangs up.) So if you ever hear noises or voices that sound far away and you don’t know where they’re coming from…check your phone!

      I do occasionally hear noises coming from my butt area, but it’s more like a “phhht” noise than a human voice saying hello.

    I like your land plans. And a 5 second rule for soup – ha, ha!

    We need no more development ANYWHERE. 1000 acres would make a lover park. Ducks in a lake. Trees. Birds. A place where’s it is okay to let your dog run. Benches. Water fountains. We have a lot of small to medium sized parks around here and they are a treasure.
