Share Your World — The Simple Things

Share Your WorldMonday is when Melanie sends out her latest Share Your World prompt, and today is no exception. So here we go.

When was the last time you tried something new?

Hmm. The other night my wife and I went out to dinner with our daughter and her significant other. Our daughter is a vegetarian and for an appetizer she ordered goat cheesecake with beets and candied walnuts and the whole thing was drizzled in some sort of green sauce. I’m not normally a fan of goat cheese, walnuts, or beets, but she insisted that I taste it and it was actually pretty good. That said, I liked my barbecue chicken wings appetizer better.

If you were forced to eliminate every physical possession from your life with the exception of what could fit into a single backpack, what would you put in it?

Toothpaste and a toothbrush, a box of tissues, a roll of toilet paper, some clean underwear and socks, a pair of jeans, a flannel shirt, my sneakers, my Patagonia jacket, my iPhone with a charger, a writing pad, a pen, a small, portable folding chair, and some Think! protein bars.E525D96C-8A7F-498B-961D-3586F58F8D5C

What simple fact do you wish more people understood?

What a moron and a traitor to America Donald Trump is. And that Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans in Congress, who not only tolerate Donald Trump, but enable him, are also traitors. And this is a fact, not an opinion.

What food item do you go through fastest in your house?

Bananas. My wife and I each have a sliced banana in the morning with our breakfast cereals. So we have to replenish them at least twice weekly. Coffee would be a close second, but does coffee count as “food”?

#100WW — Chick Magnet

EC574773-FACE-47ED-B02F-3A4B4BA08A52“He’s my chick magnet, Dude,” Clyde explained to his friend, Carl, about why he put his puppy in his backpack rather than walking him on a leash. “You wouldn’t believe how many gorgeous babes come up to me and start oohing and ahhing when I walk down the street. They start petting him and saying how adorable he is and the next thing you know, these beautiful women are giving me their numbers and begging me to call them.”

“Interesting. But there’s one problem with your plan,” Carl said, watching the damp spot spread across the bottom of the backpack.
