After a jaunt back to my folks and some weekends being a Rennie, I am back to once again, Share My World! This is a weekly challenge hosted by Cee, and I encourage you to check out other world’s! How often are we truly let into them, eh?
What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?
Use of the word “obsessed.” I know how people mean it, but I think of my old clients. They were obsessed – with drugs and alcohol. That’s obsession. Not really liking something.
What quirky things do people do where you are from?
In St. Louis, another word for white trash or someone you look down on (usually white) is “hoosier.” This harkens back to days during the Depression. When labor union workers would go on strike for better wages, the factories would bring in workers from Indiana, where the official name for the residents is Hoosier.
What are some things you wish you could unlearn?
You know, sometimes I wish I could unlearn things like the plot to a story or movie, just so I can go through the pleasure of discovering it again.
When I was still working as a drug and alcohol counselor, when I found out someone was a sex offender, I never forgot. I often had a hard time working with them after that, though that was in part because of the restrictions placed upon someone with that conviction.
I wish I could unlearn how some people feel about it. I know to be forewarned is to be forearmed, but it’s none of my business, and it doesn’t give me peace.
Who is someone that you miss having in your life?
Most people I would want to be in my life are, though not as much as I would like. Like Lindsey or Jaime or Amanda or Bhavin. I could do with more of those friends.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for a safe journey with my Wee One and I look forward to doing yoga outside!
