Prompt From: Share Your World 5-11-2020
Do you have a favorite kind of tree?
I like trees that look like they have a story to tell.
It doesn’t hurt if they are on the sinister side too.
What bridges are you happy you burned?
All of those bridges that led to a place where I thought I would matter and count to the people in my life, but when I got to the other side, I’ll be darned! Not one thing I did mattered.
Poof. Those bridges are gone.
Now if my dog wags his tail in big circles when I make him happy I feel like the best human on the face of the Earth.
Would you sacrifice yourself (die) for a stranger?
Oh heck no!
When I was in my twenties my car stalled and I got hit from behind. We pulled off of the road and I ended up in a gas station parking lot. A mechanic came out and asked me if I wanted them to work on my car. I said I was waiting for the police .
He says, ” Get that piece of shit out of here or I’m going to charge you 300.00 for storing it.”
That was in 1985 and that was a hell of a lot of money. Plus it was probably illegal for him to do that.
I tried to start my car and it wouldn’t move.
I asked if he could help me push it out to the road and he said he’d tow it to the roadside- for 100.00. Then he said if I didn’t move it NOW I was looking at paying him 300.00.
I had banged my head on the steering wheel and I didn’t know it but both my eyes were black and my nose had bled too. He SAW that.
I was in the middle of pushing my Vega to the curb when the police showed up.
So no. In a life and death situation I don’t think I’d ever consider dying for anyone else. But I have played the sap for people I do know, so I guess anything is possible.
How have your priorities changed since the C-19 virus took over?
I care more about being creative .
That’s priority 1-2-3 for me.
I suppose it’s because I feel like the world and my life as I knew it before the Virus hit is pretty much gone and not coming back so what I have going forward from this point really has to matter…
for what used to be.
