For this week’s Share Your World prompt, Melanie is offering us questions that other bloggers have posed. This should be interesting.
From Tena Carr:
What constitutes a sandwich in your opinion? Is it only the standard two slices of bread, filling (including spreads or meats and cheeses and veggies), put together in a stack?
I’m pretty liberal when it comes to what I call a sandwich. For example, I call an Oreo cookie a sandwich. So is a hot dog and a hamburger. And, of course, an ice cream sandwich. But generally I would define a sandwich as something between two slices of bread.
From Marilyn Armstrong:
Are ‘strong’ and ‘tough’ in regard to character the same thing or different? Please explain your reasoning for either side you pick.
The two words can often be considered synonymous, but I generally think of strong as a physical characteristic, whereas tough is more of a characteristic of being sturdy and resilient.
Just because someone has great muscular strength, they may not be tough. They may crumble when circumstances become too challenging. Conversely, someone with no great muscular strength may be very tough when it comes to dealing with stressful, difficult situations.
From Paula Light:
What’s your opinion on RSVPs? Obviously, formal occasions require them, but what about invitations to dinner/movies and the like? If a friend invites you to something, are you obligated to reply? What if you say yes and change your mind? How much notice is enough? Is it okay to simply no-show to a casual social event you’ve already agreed to?
Other than for formal occasions, unless someone specifically requests that you respond by phone, text, or email, I don’t see the need for a formal RSVP. But if you are invited to do something with friends and you verbally agree, it’s rude to simply not show.
Do you think Hell has walls?
As someone who doesn’t believe in hell, my answer is no. That said, being locked in a prison in solitary confinement between four walls would, to me, be like being in hell.
From Jim Adams:
- What would you name your boat if you had one? Unsinkable.
- What will finally break the internet? Elon Musk.
- If you had to change your name, what would your new name be, and why would you choose that name? “Danfango.” Because why not?
- What are some things that sound like compliments but are actually insults? Anything that comes from the mouth of Donald Trump.
- If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask? Does God exist? Wait, I already know the answer: No.
From Marilyn Armstrong:
How many bloggers are trying to balance the likelihood that WordPress will hike prices against the near certainty that their computers are ready to roll over and die?
I don’t know, but I do know that WordPress will be hiking prices (as they’ve already announced their intention to do so). And I do know that my six-year-old Dell laptop is soon going to roll over and die and I need to decide whether or not to buy a new one before it actually does so.
What’s the most impressive, or oddest thing you’ve ever fixed with duct tape (or something similar)?
I just used duct tape to secure the cover to my outdoor lighting system control panel in my garage that I accidentally broke with the top of my recycling bin.
