Share Your World — 07/19/21

Here are Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week.

Are justice and the law necessarily the same thing?

This must be one of Melanie’s silly questions. If justice and the law were the same, then Donald Trump, his three adult children, Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and a whole host of other Trump enablers and sycophants who have promoted Trump’s The Big Lie would be behind bars.

Which kitchen appliance do you use every day?

My grind and brew coffee maker, of course.

What is one thing you’ll never do again?

Probably fly. When I was working, I flew nearly three million miles for my job — and no, I wasn’t a pilot or a flight attendant. I haven’t set foot in a plane since I retired at the end of 2016, and as far as I’m concerned, if I never have to fly again, it will be too soon.

What event escalated very quickly?

The Donald Trump inspired January 6th insurrection attempt on the Capitol Building. I expected there to be protests from the MAGA mob, but I never expected the bloodthirsty violence and the attempt to lay siege to the seat of our country’s government.

    I loved flying, in a plane of course, not a broom stick. 😜

    Flying might be the one thing I wouldn’t do even if I could. I ALWAYS got sick when i flew. I swear it was the recirculated air. And I hate what they’ve done by making the seats so small, the lack of food, the general sense that they wish you weren’t there. if we can’t drive there, we aren’t going!

    Thanks, Fandango for Sharing Your World! It seems there’s a consensus in bloglandia that flying is a most unwelcome thing to do! I’m ‘in’ that club too, mainly because I have social phobia and a bit of fear of flying. First class or no way for me, and who can afford first class? At least you can stretch your freakin’ legs out and not have someone’s nasty baby screaming in your ear literally the whole flight. No. Flying is overrated. Great answers to all the questions, and you gave your usual sterling spin to the justice and escalation questions. I hope you have a cooler week (temperature wise)….

      Thanks. It is supposed to cool down to the low 80s this week.

    I am not sure about the flying… I have only been on one round trip flight and it was fine. But it was before 9/11 and before covid. A friend just posted some of the regulations for carry on bags and I think I would never be able to get the rules all straight.
