Share Your World 8-17-2020

Melanie has ‘sub let’ her SYW space with Roger Shipp who is tantalising us with questions from the Harry Potter series. She is also posting her own questions so we have a double whammy, or the either or choice.
I’m not a Harry Potter fan, having not read a single word and fell asleep during the one film I tried to view, but I will have a go as Roger’s questions aren’t exactly a test of what do you know about the franchise!

Roger’s questions:

Share Your World Meets Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

  1. Harry Potter can speak to snakes. If you were able to have conversations with any one animal, what animal would you like to speak to? What would be the topic of your first conversation?
    It would have to be dogs as I come in contact with so many. Topic of conversation would be owners!
  2. The portraits in Hogwart’s dormitories can talk. If your graduation portrait could speak to people passing it by, what would it tell them?
    I did it my way………. and proved them all wrong!
  3. Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger use the Pollyjuice Potion for finding new clues for the happenings at Hogwarts. (The Pollyjuice Potion is a magic potion that allows your body to form into that of another and live their life for a few hours.) If you could transform into another being, who would you chose to be? What would you hope to learn?
    I’d choose to be an elephant and try to discover if they really are afraid of mice.
  4. There was a flooding in the girl’s bathroom where Moaning Myrtle resides. What has been the most dangerous (or comical) ‘flooding’ where you reside?
    Although we are now living by the sea, we haven’t experienced flooding thank goodness. It came close in the cottage though. Our drive was under 6 inches of water and the door threshold was seven. We discovered that our soakaways didn’t, one downpipe was resting on a brick and the other in a plastic bag. We rectified the situation by investing in 150 meters of agricultural drainage pipe, digging a trench in front of the property, down the side and into the back garden, and putting the downpipes from the gutters into it. Worked a treat.

These are, as Melanie puts it,

Mundane or “Muggle” Questions:

(Serious one which is rather creepy):
How do you think you’ll die?  IF you do think about it?
I hope I simply fall asleep and don’t wake up. 

What’s the best on-line screen name you’ve seen? “Best might mean the oddest.
Can’t think of one at all!!

What’s invisible that you wish people could see?
Because they can’t see anything physical, people don’t believe you are experiencing it.

If over time you replace parts on a car, at what point does it stop being the same car you bought? How many parts do you need to replace to make it a new car?
Our motto has always been that if a car starts to cost us serious money to get it through the necessary safety checks etc, then it’s time to get another car.




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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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 World and a retro-spin (nod to Johnny Cash. Boy is HE missed!) I’m glad you took time for the HP questions – I noticed last week that Roger did couch them so one didn’t have to have necessarily seen or read any of the franchise to answer ’em. Great answers! You and your hubby strike me as really competent DIYers – evidenced by that clever drainage solution! It’s always GREAT when things don’t flood….

    I used the same exact song for mine! Good answers!

  3. Sadje says:

    Interesting answers Di.

  4. Ian Kay says:

    I’ve been there many times with a car. On the plus side, I didn’t mind if I put a dent in it anytime.

    Choosing to be an elephant to see if they are reallly afraid of mice? Classic!! I loved that answer. Thanks for participating in the Potter questions this week.
