Here is my contribution to Share Your World for this week. (Scroll to the bottom for more info on SYW.)
Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?
I’m an introvert, so of course I prefer going to a park. Unless the park were somewhere like Disneyland in the middle of the summer and shopping was in a quite, quaint used book store.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
A Birkenstock. I live in my Birks. For winter I am wearing Haflinger’s boiled wool clogs, but they are styled like a Birkenstock with the same molded cork foot bed. Sheer comfort, and they keep my feet warm and dry. The rest of the year I wear Birkenstock clogs. If I were a shoe, I’d want to provide that same degree of comfort.
What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out?
I was loading some boxes into my car, which was a hatchback at the time. I unlocked the hatchback, put my keys down, lifted the boxes up and into the car, and closed the hatchback. There on the floor mat in plain view were my car keys, and my car was locked. That was almost thirty years ago and I can still remember the $35 it took to have a locksmith come out after hours and let me into my car.
Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?
I love nuts. I add nuts to a lot of the food that I eat, and always have pistachios by my desk. Peanut butter? Extra chunky only. Oatmeal for breakfast? Almonds are added. Cashew chicken is my favorite Chinese dish. Yum.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
It’s good to be back in qigong class. I’m grateful for that. AND FOR MY NEW CLOCK! Yes, I had to shout that one. I have never looked up at a clock as many times as I have today. I bought a backwards clock. What a relief to see something that makes sense to me. (I wrote about it in yesterday’s blog.)
I’m looking forward to our spring flowers starting to open soon. We have a lot of things poking up out of the ground now. Just a few more weeks.
Share Your World info and link: Share Your World is a weekly challenge hosted by my spouse, Cee, at her photography blog. She started Share Your World years ago when she was running a number of challenges on a photography site similar to WordPress. The majority of photographers are introverts, and they needed a way to get to know each other. You don’t have to be a photographer to participate, though. Grab the questions and give us your answers.
Hi. I’m Chris. I’m an introvert. All of my postings tend to reflect my introvert world in some way or another. Join me and like minded introverts for a special slant on the world.
