The amazingly talented, fabulous Melanie B. Cee at Sparks from a Combustible Mind posed some interesting questions in Monday’s Share Your World post. Y’all should check it out and feel free to link & post your own answers. Here’re mine.
Q: Is it ever okay to commit a crime? Please explain.
A: Yes. Obviously, self-defense is a justifiable argument for committing major felonies like homicide or aggravated assault. Beyond that, if a crime harms no one, it’s okay to commit it. Take speeding, for instance. Most people who drive commit that crime every time they operate a motor vehicle. Just like they pass on the right, fail to signal intention when turning, etc. Those are crimes. If y’all drive and tell me you’ve never committed them yourself, I’m calling you a liar. Here in America, we have far too many laws. Sadly, getting caught breaking some of the least of them can send violators into an endless spiral of poverty and incarceration.
Q: Do you deal with change well? (not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did any how. )
A: It depends on the degree of change. I have no trouble dealing with small changes. I tolerate moderate changes reasonably well. It’s the sudden, big changes I sometimes struggle with.
Q: Do you like birds? The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food?
A: I do like birds, their melodious calls, their captivating colors, their soaring, graceful arcs of flight. I do enjoy eating turkey and chicken. I have long been especially fascinated by birds of the genus corvidae, a fascination I suspect I owe to one of my greatest literary heroes, Edgar Allan Poe. I even wrote a fun little poem about a crow a couple years back. If you haven’t already read it and are interested, you’ll find it here. Lovebirds tend to get on my nerves, especially when engaged in excessive PDA.
Q: What’s the least used item of clothing you own?
A: I have enough clothes to fill a closet and a half, a large dresser, and a smaller dresser. I have many articles of clothing I haven’t worn in years, possibly decades, even though they still fit fine.
Mel’s “Share Your World” posts always close with an invitation to express gratitude. Today, I am grateful that, so far, Coronavirus has not harmed or even badly inconvenienced me or any of the people I care most about.
Take care, be well, and peace, y’all.
