Share Your World – April 2, 2018
Cee’s Share Your World posts these questions for this week and here come my responses:
1. What was or is your favorite cartoon?
My favorite cartoon is Peanuts. I like that because many of the comic strips have thought-provoking quotes rather than funny ones.
Peanuts is written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz (November 26, 1922 – February 12, 2000) which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, continuing in reruns afterward. The comic strip is the most popular and influential in the history of comic strips, with 17,897 strips published in all, making it “arguably the longest story ever told by one human being.”. At its peak in the mid to late 1960s, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of around 355 million in 75 countries and was translated into 21 languages. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanuts
2. Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc.) would you miss the most?
All my life until the time I was retired, I worked long hours. For many years I worked full time and went to school full time (It seemed like I was going to school all my life). Cooking has never been my favorite thing to do. When I do cook, I made due of whatever is at hand.
3. Would you dare to sleep in a haunted house overnight?
I’m not an adventuresome person. If there were ghosts, I don’t think they would harm me. But if I saw one, I would be scared.
I have a friend who is a real estate agent. After her mom passed away, she was selling her mom’s house. she showed it to a buyer one day. While talking, that buyer said, “Is there anyone living in this house?”
“No.” My friend said.
“There is a person standing behind you.” The buyer whispered.
“Described that person to me.” My friend said without turning to look.
The buyer described to my friend of whom she saw. My friend said, “That’s my mom.”
4. What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I’m thankful to be well again. During my hospital stay last weekend, after many testing to rule out the virus and disease, the doctors concluded that I had an allergic reaction to some chemicals in my high blood pressure medication. Whatever chemicals that didn’t agree with my baby, I had taken it for nine months. Then my baby didn’t like it anymore and reacted to it violently and cause 103.8 fever and rash all over my body. The medication was replaced by new one, and I’m doing well.
My granddaughter turned 6-month-old on March 28. I’m going to see her tomorrow, Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
