Share Your World – Week of June 27, 2022

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off? If you’re retired, what’s something you now include in your schedule that you dreamed about while employed?

Day-tripping is my favorite way to spend a day off. There’s no better way than to go somewhere with my camera. That is if the weather permits and if the gas prices ever become affordable again.

Now that Covid isn’t so strictly monitored and folks can go out and about again, are you into after-work happy hours?

This is a real thing? I thought it’s only done in movies and TV shows. With that said, my co-workers all have families and babies and grand-babies they have to take care of. So no happy hour.

What physical traits do you share with your relatives? (Example:  I have my mother’s nose)

I’ve been told I look like the female version of my father and based on the photos I’ve shown, I don’t kinda look like him. I inherited hardly anything from my mother though. In fact, people can’t even tell we’re mother-daughter unless someone told them. We have different last names and look nothing alike.

She used to tell me I might not be hers, that I got switched at the hospital because I inherited none of her traits. This peaked my curiosity so I did a DNA test a few years ago. We share about 49% DNA. That would explain all the stuff I got from my dad – the looks, the love of photography and writing, and who knows what else.

How long does it take you to decide if you like someone or not?

Not very long because I have a knack of reading people. I can kinda tell what kind of person they are from conversing with them and first impression.

    1. That’s very true. When I was younger, I didn’t look like anyone. My mom’s siblings often asked if I was really hers. I thought it was rude of them to say that and because I didn’t look like them, they treated me like an outsider.

  1. Thank you for Sharing Your World Yinglan! It’s true that as some people age, they resemble one parent or the other remarkably. I looked nothing like my mother (just like her side of the family) until I was 58 or so and then got the shock of my life when I ‘saw’ her looking back at me from a mirror. Other people have remarked on the resemblance. I’m glad you’ve found a great way to spend free time, being out in nature and taking those amazing photos that you share! Have a happy week! 🙂

    1. That’s what’s I’ve been noticing about myself. The older I get, the more I look like my dad and his mom. Maybe my mom’s traits will come much later in life. I guess I’ll just have to be patient.
