A Bit (More) About Me #7

Holy cow, y’all, I haven’t done one of these since last October!  Guess it’s about time, but even if it weren’t, Melanie B. Cee’s very interesting 2/25/19 Share Your World prompt would’ve induced me to do so.  Please check out her post by clicking the link above.  I’d love to learn a bit more about y’all, too, so please join in the fun!

Q:  What, in your opinion, is the point to life?
A:  The point of life is to live it.  Live it as best you’re able and with an earnest effort every day to treat all others with kindness, compassion, and respect and, when you’re unable to help others, at least seek to do them no harm.

Q:  What was your most recent lie?  You don’t have to get really specific obviously.
A:  Damn, that’s a tough one.  When I was younger, I was a talented liar and, to my profound regret, abused that skill too often.  I’ll keep those secrets to myself, though, or at least dress them up as fiction when I decide to reveal them.  I can’t remember the last intentional lie I told unless you count maintaining to The Boy, who hasn’t yet begun to question the existence of them, that Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are real.

Q: What country do you consider the strangest?   (it’s all In fun folks, ALL countries may seem strange to outsiders)
A:  My very own country, the United States of America.  If I didn’t think so 2 years ago, I damn sure know so now.

Q:  What’s your funniest story involving a car?
A:  Oh, that’s easy.  A short short story titled “Sick Day” that I wrote one year ago and posted here in 2 parts and which was later published in Tennessee’s Emerging Writers, 2018 edition.  Those of you who’ve been with me a while may’ve read it; some of you may even remember it.  If you haven’t read it or have forgotten it and are interested, you can read part 1 here and part 2 here.  In my youth, I was a reckless speed demon.  I got my driver’s license just before turning 17, and before I was 20, I had totaled numerous vehicles and accumulated enough points to have my license revoked.  So I have lots of funny stories involving cars.  None of which involved anyone else being injured or anyone else’s property being damaged.  Much.  If you’re ever in my neck’o’the woods, stop by for a drink, and I’ll gladly regale you.  But wait ’til after 3/5/19; I’m tryin’ to go a whole month without whiskey!

Now it’s y’all’s turn.  If you don’t wanna do the Share Your World post, at least do me the favor of letting me know, in the Comments section down below, what you think the point of life is and any other thoughts you trust me with.

      1. Or consistently. Who of us live doing these things one hundred percent of the time. Your answer also hit on two of the most promising ethical criteria – support human flourishing and avoiding harm. For those interested I have several blog post that touch on these concepts.

  1. Thanks Mr. Denny for Sharing Your World. Now your first answer and that of another blogger, Marilyn of Serendipity-Looking for Intelligent Life… are eerily similar. I think you both are onto something there… Great! 🙂
