Another Thursday SYW intro, another Shelf critter to talk about. This week, as if you couldn’t smell her coming, will be the surly mephitic pluviophile Rainy. Rainy was apparently born with rain gauge in paw, but since it never rains on the Shelf, there is never any precipitation to accumulate in her gauge, making her very unhappy. And when her eyes light up red when she gets angry….. well, she often takes out this anger on the other critters of the Shelf with her toxic skunky gift of green gas. And heaven forbid you desecrate her precious rain gauge….
I found Rainy among the many quirky treasures at a place called Ozarkland on one of my baseball trips to Kansas City back in 2014. I didn’t have a skunk in my collection at the time, and how could I possibly resist the absurd combination of a skunk toting a rain gauge? She emerged and earned her name during the pre-SCT Bashful skits to become the traveling rock’s major nemesis and continued wreaking havoc once The Theatre formed to continue being one of the production’s stars. I mean, would you want to tell her that her talents were no longer needed?
A SYW question themed around Rainy:
What’s the silliest or pettiest thing that tends to really upset you?
And now we shall get on with the show, assuming none of you walked out during the opening act (and if you did, don’t let Rainy find out). Here are our answers to this week’s Share Your World questions, provided as always, by Melanie…
If you could be anywhere else right now, where would it be?
If I ever get there, I’ll be sure to send you a postcard…
What Wastes The Most Time In Your Day To Day Life?
How would you describe your greatest enemy? If you don’t have one, share your secret!
My greatest enemy is a doofus who wears lace panties and always has their thumb up their butt. They’re also a poopoohead who picks their nose and wipes it on their Strawberry Shortcake Trapper Keeper. They kick puppies, park in front of fire hydrants and tear the DO NOT REMOVE tags off their mattresses. I don’t know who this greatest enemy is… but if they existed, that pretty much describes them…
If you were a bird, what kind of bird would you be?
Note: I swear I hadn’t looked at this question before I added the image above!
Since this question makes it sound like I wouldn’t have a choice, I’d probably end up being a vulture…
Feel free to share an image, a thought or a meme about kindness this week!
Kindness, you say?
No kind deed ever goes unpunished at The Nest!
