Melanie B Cee, of the Blog Sparksfromacombustiblemind has posted a few questions in her Share your world challenge,
see her post here:
Now, I don’t do a lot of these, mainly because I want the focus of my blog to be on the stories and poems that I wrote and less on my, their author. Plus, I don’t think I’m at all that interesting. I certainly hope my stories are more interesting than I am.
I am taking part in this one because I like the questions and also because I am so grateful and pleased to see a post from Melanie. She is going through a tough time and I feared the worst, so It’s a privilege to take part in this challenge.
What, in your opinion, is the point to life?
What was your most recent lie? You don’t have to get really specific obviously.
What country do you consider the most strange? (it’s all In fun folks, ALL countries may seem strange to outsiders)
What’s your funniest story involving a car?
- In my opinion, the meaning of life is the same as the meaning of a good meal. It is not meant to be rationalised, just to be eaten and enjoyed as much as possible. It might contain some really lovely flavours or some not so pleasant ones, but in the end, you have to make the best of what you’ve got.
- My most recent lie is probably “Yes, I had a good day at work”.
- Every country has it’s quirks, not just looking in from the outside but also looking from the inside. The UK is no exception to a few crazy traditions. I think it is what makes countries different to each other, that makes them interesting. If they were all the same, where would there be any point in travelling? I do enjoy watching videos on youtube about 5 things that outsiders don’t know about….. (replace with any country). There is a great out about the US and also one about Japan. Vive La’ Difference, say I.
- My funniest story about a car involved my cousin and her dad. I didn’t know him very well, he always seemed quiet and unassuming, but apparently, he wasn’t. My cousin tells me that once they were driving along and the road went through a gated area. The Satnav said to go on, but the gate guard seemed to indicate that that wasn’t going to happen. My cousin’s dad wound down the window and the guard walked up and put his hand out and asked for his pass. What he actually said was “Pass”, so he replied. “Thank you” and put his foot down and drove on through.
Do you have something you’re very thankful for or that showed immense kindness toward yourself or someone?
I try to be grateful every day and I have a lot to be grateful for. I’m not only grateful for the things I have and the things that have happened. I am grateful for somethings that haven’t and I’m grateful that I am able to take part in this Share the World post.
