For today’s Share Your World, we have a guest host, Tena Carr, from Jottings and Writings, standing in for Melanie. So let’s get to it, shall we?
Do you prefer salty foods or sweet foods?
I had surgery to remove a growth in the middle ear of my left ear in December 2019 that left me deaf in that ear. One of the unintended consequences of that surgery was that I lost my sense of taste. So these days, everything I eat — sweet, salty, savory, spicy, bitter, whatever — taste blah.
Would you rather be in a place where it is excessively hot or excessively cold?
One of the attractions of moving to San Francisco was that it never gets excessively hot or excessively cold there. We have since moved to the East Bay Area, about 35 miles east of San Francisco, and while it never gets excessively cold there, either, it does get excessively hot in the summer. And I hate that!
Favorite mode of long distance travel (bus, plane, train, automobile, or other?).
Unless I have to get someplace far away fast, I won’t fly. I prefer either driving or, if available between my starting point and my destination and time is not a consideration, train.
What was your favorite holiday growing up? (You can also use american holidays or appropriate holidays from your country.)
Fourth of July. I used to love cookouts with family and friends and going to see fireworks. But, since the pandemic, that’s pretty much been a thing of the past.
What gave you the most gratification this week?
I got my hearing aids. Now all I have to do is get acclimated to them, which could take a couple of months.
