Share Your World – Week 30

I kinda wish this squirrel would have bitten my finger off as well.

After dealing with an infected finger all week (one of the banes of having a lifelong nail chewing habit), I skimped out on my world sharing duties again Tuesday.  But hey, it’s not like I ever post anything on Thursdays anymore like I used to… so let’s get my fashionably late response to Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week going!  And I’ll try very hard not to get pus all over this post….

I would have dropped the world this week and broken it like I did a lot of merchandise at work…

Is it wrong to sell store-bought pastries at a bake sale?

Of course it’s wrong!  I mean, how are you going to get the “good stuff” in them if you don’t make the treats from scratch?

And congrats to Fuzzywig for having the most successful table at the Shelf bake sale for the 13th straight year!

Have you ever interacted with the police?

Only twice that I can think of, and both on the complainant side of things.  A couple weeks ago, I shared the story of how my best friend decided to pilfer some of my Dad’s most valuable baseball cards… and since he got his opportunity by sending me on a fetch quest to another room, I got to answer some questions.  Then there was the time five years ago when my AC got vandalized in a copper-theft-gone-wrong attempt and again got to answer some questions.  I’ve been fortunate not to have ever been pulled over, but despite the fact that my Mom thinks (perhaps justifiably so) that I tend towards road rage, I’m one of the more lawful drivers out there and can at least use my turn signal…

And it helps that I don’t have any warrants out for my arrest. Yet…

What will you remember most about this past year?

Well, for now it would be the fact that some punk of a kid tried to set the store I work at on fire back in June.  Not to jinx myself, but it’ll be hard for anything in the final five months to top that…

Unless Snuggle Bear finally ambushes me…

Is it better to have fungus on your toes, your tongue, or your pizza?

That is disgusting!  Who in the hell would want fungus on their pizza!?!?

Not these ponies. Just pile on the meat, please…

What is one slang word that makes your skin crawl?

I hate most of the newer words that enter our language…. particularly in this age of social media.  I’m not a big fan of “viral,” as it tends to be used in a positive connotation rather than as the horrific hipster way that it should.  Sheep like things that are viral, and if there’s one thing the internet has proven is that there is a lot of baa-aaa-aaaaing people out there…

Apparently not all farm animals like doggy style.

Aren’t You Glad?

    I agree with you in that having had your workplace torched, the rest of the year should be downhill for you. Not to jinx you, of course. But that does seem like it might be the… wait for it… highlight of your year.

  2. You continue to be the most fascinating man in the world. Without the beer. 🥤

  3. Yep viral does sound positive when it shouldn’t, so I agree with you on that one. And that punk kid won’t try again I’m sure, and if he does all you need to do is let the critters loose on him/her and no one will ever know what happened to that kid…..ever….lol.

    Yay Fuzziwig!! My main man.

  5. Yep a fire in the store HAD to be a high/lowlight of the year – only thing better would have been if you’d been the hero to put it out ! Seriously though, glad nobody was hurt – people do the DUMBEST things don’t they. Fungus on a pizza? Hmm…..that word “viral” comes to mind – ick.


  6. ….and here is Carol Merrill with the prize for the most unique responses to Share Your World. *discreet applause and some mild coughing. Someone always coughs during those things, you ever notice?* This goes to EVIL SQUIRREL and the rowdy bunch at the Shelf Critter Theater (non-profit). Tip your server, ‘cos E.S. will be here all … here forever. Now pass the brownies please!

  7. Is there anything special in the brownies?

    I’m a finger biter too. I always have antiseptics on hand in the bathroom. Especially useful after eating mouldy pizza…
