Here are my answers to this weeks Share Your World questions from Sparks
If the government offered to suspend all laws, and law enforcement for 24 hours, letting you (and everybody else) do whatever you wish… Would you be in favor of it, or not? (Credit for this question goes to Cyranny and her Daily Quickie Question)
Well it would be great to be able to get away with murder. There are one or two people I know in this world that should not be allowed to live for their own sake and for the sake of others and I although I probably wouldn’t take it upon myself to do the dirty deed I would not be averse to hiring somebody else to do so. The executions would definitely benefit the country and the world. Of course other evil crimes would be committed and those offenders would get off scot free. Crimes are committed every day. Offenders get off scot free every day. So for just one day to have lawlessness only to go back to order the next? It could work. Look how we recover from war which is a kind of lawlessness isn’t it?
What would be the creepiest thing you could say while passing a stranger on the street? (We’re suspending the whole social distancing and Covid involvement in this scenario)
I know what you did and I know where you live.
As a child, what did you think would be great about being an adult, but isn’t as great as you thought it would be?
As I child I thought it would be wonderful to be in charge of my own life, choose a career and earn my own money. All these things have come to fruition and I prefer adulting to being a child. Of course it is not as glamerous as I imagined and the selfish lifestyle I envisioned didn’t quite turn out that way as I had to consider the needs of husband, kids and grandkids but all in all it’s been pretty darn good being an adult. I wouldn’t change a thing.
What, in your opinion, has been blown way out of proportion?
Lots of things are blown out all proportion. People thrive on sensationalism. What the media makes an issue of is usually best ignored in my humble opinion. If everybody is making a fuss about it I tend to just ignore it. Blow it out of proportion and the problem will try to live up to its undeserved reputation.
Gratitude Section (Optional as always)
Where is your ‘happy’ place?
My happy place is without question the Kruger National Park. Any game reserve will do it for me but Kruger is the ultimate. The minute I enter Malelane Gate I enter an ecstatic state which does not leave me until I leave.
