Share Your World – Week 128

I’d be tired too if I had to blow that thing up…

The Nest is continuing its countdown of items that were not very popular when I started working at Mecca in 1998, but that have since become the big must-have swag everyone wants to blow their money on.  We’re getting into the real “Holy crap, did those become BIG!” territory now… and at #4 on our list is air mattresses!  What was once a novelty item for camping trips or for use as an emergency place to sleep in case that brand new futon you ordered from Rent-A-Center took a little too long to show has now become perfectly acceptable for use as a normal bed.  People have been buying these things like crazy for the past few years, and they now take up two entire sections in the sporting goods department, and even branched out into the regular bedding area about five years ago!  All I can say is the people who buy these things must not live with cats….

SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSsssssssssssssssss…………..

Now it’s time to use my head full of hot air to answer this week’s Share Your World questions, provided as always by Melanie

Take caution not to overinflate the planet…

What did you learn the hard way?

Not to trust people who are cheerfully waving you on to make a left turn in front of them

I couldn’t have damaged your truck that much, sir. I can still see my reflection in the wax job!

Which activities make you lose track of time?

I somehow managed to waste 50 minutes trying to think of an answer to this question, and still came up empty!

Let me answer for the stupid squirrel, dude!

Why do we seem to think of others the most after they’re gone?

I move on too well from people in real life for this to be an issue.  Chances are, I wasn’t thinking of them even before they were gone… and certainly not after.

It would help if they went away for good…

Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

The only truth that can be known is unchallengeable… the basic, undisputable facts of our universe and existence.  The application of those facts in our world and everyday life is very challengeable, but that’s what makes it NOT truth, even though people like to refer to these inferences as “truths.”

We hold these truths to be self evident…….. BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!

Couldn’t have said it better myself!

GRATITUDE SECTION:

It’s gonna be 100 degrees tomorrow!  Summer is here….

  1. I had to learn that lesson too … for the price of a new rear light… I always thought chevy makes cars for the working class….wrong! oh wait two lessons for the price of one…what a deal!

    I know what you mean with the hot weather! Try to keep cool! 🙂

  3. All I can say is never trust a truck driver and summer can go away any time as far as I’m concerned. It’s been nearly a week of either upper 90’s or 100F (with more high 90’s forecast for next week) and summer hasn’t officially arrived yet. Good news though, autumn is just 98 days away. 😬

    It is 104F and not yet 10:30 in thee morning yet. It is an Arizona cold snap BRRRRRRR.

  5. Thanks ever so for Sharing Your World E.S. Great answers, plus a cartoon goodie! It made me forget about the ‘it’s too damned hot 🔥 . This remark/comment is short, sort of, because my computer, perhaps having hot flashes of its own, died. I typing on my tablet. 😰. You have a wonder filled week and stay cool! 🗻💨

    • Hopefully my computer won’t get heat stroke too… since my fat bod (not quite xxxxxxxxxxxl) blocks most of the fan from cooling it off. At least the AC has kept up, which a month ago, I’d have doubted for true muggy summer weather.

  6. The Next ‘toon was sheer perfection. It has always amazed me that people go to the beach to cool off. HUH? Nothing cool about being there – hot sand, hot sun, hot water in the summer anyway, and by the time the ice cubes have melted that you brought (takes about 30 seconds) hot drinks as well. The smell of baking skin permeates the atmosphere – and everyone looks like a lobster. OOPS I think I slipped into “rant” mode!

    Pam

    • I don’t get the appeal of the beach at all…. it’s literally one of the last places I’d want to be when it’s hot! Maybe that’s just a landlocked Midwesterner who’s never been on a real beach before talking, but I’ll just stay inside, thank you!

    What’s with the last answer? You’ve gone all philosophical on us! Let’s get Zeeba to answer instead. I’m sure her answer will be more straightforward and will probably involve a sharp implement…

  8. Ally Bean says:

    While I take the implied meaning of the first question, it is suggesting that some things are soft, the opposite of hard. I’ve never learned anything the soft way, but that’s just me.
