Here’s Melanie’s latest Share Your World prompt, and the last one for April 2019. So let’s see what she wants us to share and how much I’m willing to go along with sharing.
If you could interview anyone from your life, living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be and why?
It would be my father. As I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts, I was too self-absorbed when I was young and when he was still alive to ask him to tell me stories about his youth. He was born in the Ukraine and ended up coming to America when he was around 14 years old, but I don’t know any of the details of his life before reaching the U.S. or his early days in this country. I really regret that.
As a child, did you have a nickname? Did you carry that with you throughout life or was it only in childhood that you used it?
My father used to call me “Butch,” as did some of my friends, but it never transcended into my adult life.
Give us three words that describe you:
Old, liberal, young at heart.
Sneaking into a second movie at the theater (if you go to a movie house)? Is that wrong or just harmless ‘fun’?
It’s not something I’ve ever done, but it doesn’t sound to me like a heinous crime.
If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or forward into the future?Why?
If I had a Wayback Machine, and Sherman and Mr. Peabody could go with me, I’d visit the past. To me, the future looks pretty bleak.
What were you thankful for during April?
That no one I know personally died.
