It’s the first Share Your World of December and that means 2021 is nearing its end. Looking back, I probably won’t miss it much. Anyway, let’s see what Melanie wants us to share this week.
What really turns your stomach? (Politicians aside.)
Yes, I know that Melanie said “politicians aside,” but what really turns my stomach has its roots in politics and it’s all of the people (mostly Republicans and far-right conservatives) who are bound and determined to destroy the American democracy, who refuse to get vaccinated and wear face masks to combat COVID, and who have no qualms about taking away women’s rights to manage their own health decisions.
What would YOU do with the immense amount of ‘garbage’ in the world, if there weren’t dumps or barges where it was taken to be processed?
What would I do? I’m just some grumpy old fart who complains about the problem but has no grand solutions to offer. Personally, I do my small part by recycling, composting, and minimizing what goes in my landfill trash bin. I also try to avoid purchasing products that are packaged in plastic and other non-sustainable packaging. I also purchase mostly organic foods. Do my actions do much to address the problem? Probably not, but it makes me feel better.
What’s the oddest container you’ve ever gotten a gift in?
Whoa, I guess I’ve lived a very sheltered life because I can’t think of any container of a gift I’ve ever received that I would describe as “odd.”
Holiday themed question:
Do people behave differently during Christmas (insert your own holiday or festive season)?
Do they try to be better?
Do you donate something (e.g., money, clothes) to charities?
Do you give something to homeless people?
No, no, and no. (Just call me Scrooge McFandango.)
This is an allegedly joyful time of year. How do you, personally, FEEL?
Continuing with the Scrooge McFandango theme, I’m looking forward to this “joyful time of year” being over.
