It’s time once again for us to answer Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week. So, without further ado, let’s do this!
Where do you get your news?
My primary sources for news are: The San Francisco Chronicle, The Week magazine, the newsfeed on my iPhone, and MSNBC. And the Daily Show with Trevor Noah, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Real Time with Bill Maher.
What ‘old person’ thing do you do?
As I am an “old person,” I would say that everything I do is an “old person” thing. I guess the most telling, though, might be that we typically time our dinner meal for as early as 5:00 pm and no later than 6 pm.
When was the coldest you’ve ever been? The warmest?
Coldest: my wife and I went to Barrow, Alaska, also known as Utqiaġvik, in 2007 to visit our son, where he got a job as a state court magistrate, his first job after graduating from law school. Barrow is one of the northernmost public communities in the world and is the northernmost city in the United States.
Warmest: Death Valley, California, where it hit 118°F when we visited it a few years back. But it was a dry heat!
Do you eat food that’s past its expiration date if it still smells and looks fine?
My philosophy is that if it’s not discolored, not fuzzy (assuming it’s not a peach), and doesn’t cause me to gag when I smell it, it’s still good to eat…for me, anyway.
