Sharing Day

My Response to  Melanie’s   SHARE YOUR WORLD 


What is your opinion of the state of health care in your country?  Adequate or inadequate?  What could be done to improve it?

If what ails you doesn’t kill you, the bill might. But like other things, if you are well off in the US you’ve probably got great insurance. What can improve it? Ha. Unless there comes a day when insurance ceases to be a money maker it will never change.

What are two words that describe you best?

Hmmm, well ” good for nothing ” is three words but I have those words stamped on my brain and I really can’t get away from them. Sad but true.

Do you have a morning routine? If so, what it’s like?

I have a dog and we live in an apartment. So my  morning starts off with my dog going out of his mind with joy that we are going to get up and go for a walk. He bounces on and off the furniture, he brings me toys , he does this dance where he wiggles as he turns in circles and he also makes happy dog sounds. Starting your day with a creature that is so happy morning is here is not such a bad way to start the day.

What’s something that really makes your blood race?

There are some days when I hit everything on my daily goals list and I am on FIRE.  I know that this is a term that people use when they are angry about something, but the thing is when I’m angry my blood doesn’t race, it turns to ice.

So to me having your blood race is a good thing.

Do you enjoy singing festive songs during *insert festive celebration that you observe to replace “Christmas” if it’s not relevant to you * Christmas carols or songs?

I love Christmas music. All of it. I like to sing it, I like to listen to other people sing it too.

Except for that song that George Michael’s sings about having a one night stand with someone who didn’t love him the next day.That song  is an anthem to bad decision making. Oh. And I REALLY hate that song about the kid who buys shoes for his dying Mother because she’s going to meet Jesus.

As if that wasn’t rancid cheesy enough-

the part that really made be sick was that in  the song poor kid was ” dirty from head to toe ” and paid with pennies- because as we all know poor kids are dirty and scrounge around for pennies all day long.

I don’t know who thought this song was a good idea but BLECH.

To get back to the question I love to sing the ” Boars Head ” and ” Silver Bells.  ” There is no one good reason. I just feel good when I do.

So that was a little peek into my world, some of it is good, some of it is not so good but I have a great dog so it all balances out in the end.

  1. Thanks, A.M.M. for Sharing Your World with everyone! You have a very interesting way of putting things in your writing, so instead of “good for nothing”, why not say “creative and unique?” I think that’s true enough. I think it’s one of those unspoken ‘jobs’ of the dogs in the world to bring their humans to ‘life’ after they’ve been sleeping long enough (in the dog’s estimation). Ziggy does much the same as yours. And yes, it’s hard to be grouchy with all that joy right in one’s face. Lucky you! Lucky me! 🙂 I’d never heard of that poor kid song, and am glad I have not. It doesn’t sound like a well thought out nor written song at all. The Christmas Shoes is a sappy song, but it always makes me bust out crying because my own mother died December 17th. That line about ‘meeting Jesus tonight” always gets me. But I admit that the first time I heard the thing, I thought what sort of dipshit is out buying shoes for his mother when she’s dying? I doubt she will care and Jesus sure doesn’t care about fine footwear. I know it’s supposed to be endearing and a lesson about giving or something. Thank you for participating and for sharing a very unique perspective! Great answers!

    • Melanie, I am so sorry about your Mom- and I’m sorry that song about the shoes got to you. That’s the thing, it was written and as tear jerker so that it would sell ( and they made that crappy song into a crappy movie) to people who just like having their tears jerked. There is a comedy show called Mrs Brown’s Boys that did a riff of sorts on that song and the slap down they gave it was richly deserved.

      I’m glad your Ziggy does the happy morning ritual for you- isn’t it the greatest?
