Share Your World 6-8-2020

Many thanks to Melanie who is our host for the Share Your World questions and answers every Monday.

Questions:

How comfortable are you speaking in front of large groups of people?
Not very, until I get started and then after the initial ‘all eyes are on me’ flush, I’m OK.
Mind you, the largest number I spoke in front of was about 20, when I gave a talk on the Bear Necessities!
The world’s smallest (hinged) teddy bear, Mini the Pooh.

What would be the best thing you could reasonably expect to find in a cave?
Shelter and a sympathetic grizzly

What did you think was going to be amazing but turned out to be horrible?
A steak, which looked beautiful on the plate until I cut into it, or tried to. It was as tough as old boots and tasted liked cardboard. Glad to say I hadn’t cooked it.

What’s the silliest thing you’ve observed someone get upset about?
That’s a toughie as for someone to get upset over something, obviously whatever it was wasn’t silly to them. The silliest thing I’ve got upset over is a rubber spider which made me panic and hyperventilate.


Gratitude: 

Please feel free to share something that gave you an uplifted spirit during this past week.  (Optional)

I read a post yesterday where the entire street came out to show their respects for a resident who had recently died. There may not have been many mourners allowed at the service, but this was a wonderful tribute in today’s circumstances.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Thanks Di for Sharing Your Amazing World!! Your gratitude answer was beautiful and made me a little teary eyed. Such great solidarity!! Mini The Pooh?? Oh my heck!! BWAHAHHAHHAHAH!!! 😆 So CUTE!!! ❤ I've had those kind of steaks before. I usually send them back, because my preferred method for cooking a steak is medium rare. One ought to be able to cut it with a spoon! Steak is expensive too, so to me it's a HUGE waste. I know the restaurant (when I used to go to such) won't re-sell the meat, but only throw it out, so I sometimes ask for a doggy bag and take it home. The dogs don't care how tough the meat is 😉 Spiders? 😮 brrrrr!! I'd have had the same reaction. Trust me. It's not silly at all!

    • I wish I could find my notes for my Bear necessities talk. It went down really well, especially as they were all expecting a talk about budgets and cheap meals. Mini the Pooh is her real name by the way.
      I did send a steak back once as it stank! I got my plate back with a smaller original steak and comments that the chef and manageress had tasted it and it was fine! I refused to pay and would have taken it further but someone bet me to it and the place was shut down a week later.

    Badly cooked food is just a let down, even if it’s cooked by us!
    I read that post from Judy too. It was such a kind gesture.

    I’ve had that steak experience! I hadn’t eaten one in forever and nothing else on the menu sounded good to me…I was REALLY looking forward to a magical steak and then it was just…eh.
