Share Your World – Week of September 20, 2021 Squirrely Edition Take 2


Melanie has decided to let those pesky critters take control of this week’s Share your World again, so let’s see what has those critters unleashed this week.

8-19-2021  “Chip the Dignified if Species Confused Squirrel/Chipmonk” asks:

If you were to be cast as part of a comedy double act, which part would you play…. the straight man or the funny one, and why?

I will definitely be the part of the funny person. I am a straight man as it is though I often can’t help myself but laugh along. I can never resist a good laughter and it would make me a terrible straight person if I just stood there being all serious and acting like a rock.

8-26-2021  “Buster “Auuughhh I’m HIT!” , the Indestructible Possum” asks but Evil Squirrel decided to jump in with a lengthy preface:

And while I had a few potential questions prepared… last week’s SCT SYW segment was a bit of a learning experience for me in getting a sample of what kind of taste many of the other participants have, as opposed to my tastelessness.  Mitzi’s unicorn horn question seemed to really get some heads scratching out there. So I’ll avoid the obvious death theme*, and ask this SYW question based on Buster that should still challenge the imagination, which you all know I’m pretty big on…”

  • For those not familiar with Buster – Buster dies a horrible death in every episode of SCT, any posts he’s featured in and most of the cartoon strips.  Course in the strips he was the epitome of what I’ve heard tell of possum-kind – nasty, mean and will seriously bite you if cornered.  They might have rabies too.  We don’t have possums in Utah, so that’s not verified.  

If you were to be reincarnated on Earth as any non-living/inanimate object of your choosing, what would you come back as and why?

That’s a tough one. I want to be something that doesn’t feel pain and it doesn’t get abused by any living thing, something like sand. That’s it! If I am to be reincarnated as any non-living/inanimate object, I would be a grain of sand on the beach.

When wind blows, I fly. When water comes, I swim. When I come together with lots of other sand, I become glass which can be a beautiful thing.

Fleabag, the Canine asks:

We all know how dogs mark their territory.  How do you mark your territory?

I mark my territory by making it my own. Like with my yard, my neighbor loan me his tiller and my uncle helped me till my front yard on Sunday which took out most of my lawn. Now, I just have to wait until the rest of the grass dies until I proceed with the next step to turn my front yard into a rock garden. Now, how’s that for marking one’s territory?

A Share Your World question inspired by Shadow (The Supercilious Creature from the Pokemon ‘empire)

If you were on a trivia show and had to correctly answer ten questions in one subject to win a million dollars (or whatever currency is used in your locale), what would you hope the category would be?

Gee, I don’t know. I can’t say I’m an expert in any subject but I guess if you hit me with 10 questions that asks me to find the error in any sentence – whether grammatical or spelling, I think I can get it right. I used to be very good at those but I don’t know anymore.

‘Unca’ Sam – Cousin to America’s Uncle Sam (pictured below), who used to be our stalwart, thrifty and honest icon of America, but whom a certain orange and ugly with it crapped all over (maybe literally), so Uncle Sam’s message is now sullied permanently.  

UNCA Sam – his sleazeball third cousin twice removed is everything that a certain T-dump aspired to be.  Oily, corrupt, ugly as the south end of a north bound dog with diarrhea, and autocratic on top of it all.  A real sleaze pie.   

Unca Sam asks (A rare serious and thought-provoking SYW question inspired by Uncle Sam…)

In democratic societies, do you believe that the right to vote is merely a privilege or a duty for all citizens?  This should not be thought of as an “Americans only” question.  ANY ONE is welcome to answer.

I believe it’s both a privilege and duty because as someone who used to live in a country where most things regarding is government controlled and restricted to everyday citizens, despite only living there a short time, I understood the importance of individual freedom and the right to vote to elect leaders is part of that freedom.

  1. Thanks, Yinglan for Sharing Your World! I agree with SadiRose that the sand answer is great! It is somehow so peaceful to imagine that, perhaps “Zen” is a good word to use! Your thoughts on voting are wonderful and I loved the quote you shared. It is a privilege which should not be dismissed lightly. But far too many do these days. I blame lack of good candidates for that personally, but one should still make an effort to pick the best one of the worst of them. Have a wonderful week and marking your territory by making something beautiful like a rock garden is amazing! I’m sure it’s going to make your home look very ‘yours’. 🙂

    • Thank you, I think after living the first life as human – full of pain, misery, sadness, loss, as well as a ton of emotions – I would wish to live a second life full of tranquility.
      I agree about the “lack of good candidates”. Perhaps, it’s time to give millennials a shot, the baby boomers and gen x’s have had their time to shine.
      Have a wonderful week. 🙂
