Gobble Share 🦃


Happy Thanksgiving week! Melanie has new questions for us to ponder as we get ready to nom…

1. What is worse than a dentist with bad breath?

One who doesn’t use anesthesia! Seriously though, I once had a hygienist who lectured me about the devil while she was working on my teeth. That was disturbing… 😬

2. Have you ever been rejected by someone that you liked, or been told that you were not good enough for somebody else?

Four years ago this week I was dumped by someone I’d been dating for a few months. We had made T-day plans and vacation plans too. I really liked him despite the fact that he’d been a jerk ~ he had apologized for that, and I forgave him. He basically said I wasn’t good enough for him because while he’d spent a bunch of money on our dates, I hadn’t baked cookies for him. He also said that the fact I was 3 years older bothered him. This all triggered me into a depression, not so much due to missing him or anything like that, but because my judgment was/is so fucking bad in this area. I should never have gotten together with him in the first place much less accepted his phony apology.

3. Did you ever want to have toast for breakfast, only to find that all your bread was covered in green mold?

No. But last week I didn’t seal my cheddar cheese properly and it got all dried out.

4. Did you ever sneeze so hard that your whole body hurt?

My whole body hurts every time I sneeze. It jerks my owie back, which begins shooting pain all over.

5. Did you ever buy clothing on the internet that did not fit, but you wore them anyway, since you didn’t want to pay the $5 shipping charge to send them back?

No. I’ll send them back, or, if they’re cheap, I’ll donate them. This rarely happens though since I know my size pretty well.

6. As a nod to the upcoming American Thanksgiving Holiday which happens this Thursday, please share in the Gratitude Section anything you might be thankful for this particular November.

I’m always grateful for my family, and this year I’m especially grateful for my lovely roomie too.

  2. thanks Paula for Sharing Your World and an AWESOME meme/image too! That’s so clever! I never thought about that but having chronic back pain or trouble must be tricky on a lot of levels. The spine and nerves back there connect to EVERYTHING, and if you ‘twinge’ it (by sneezing or whatever) that must be horrible! Take care! I had a ‘cheese’ malfunction myself this week…but it was mold. I’d forgotten it was in there… thankfully I’d eaten most of it before it went bad. I’d say about that potential boyfriend that it was “HIS LOSS”. He could have asked for you to make him some cookies…I used to say to hubby time to time that I couldn’t read his mind so he had to speak up if he wanted something. Like you, I’ve been roasted in the fires of bad choices vis a vis men. So I gave them up. Too much work, but you’re young still and you just never know.

  3. I feel so sad for the poor cheddar… 😭
    It’s amazing how really intelligent people can be so STUPID when it comes to relationships! I made some horrible choices myself. Kinda embarrassing 😳

  4. I think it was good deliverance from him. You’re a fantastic person and if it weren’t cookies, I would have been something as petty.
    Family is the best.

  5. Hygienists can be weird like that sometimes. I’ve always been lucky, though; Mary’s the one that gets the strange ones. I just get the overly chatty ones.

  6. My dentist once muttered a prayer while having some trouble with a root canal. Later she said something like, we don’t know when the Lord wants to take us, but her job is to see that our teeth stay in good condition until then. I am not going to any dentist during the pandemic, but I plan on getting another one before I go back to her. She’s nice, and the people in the office are nice, but it’s just a little unsettling. It’s possible I’m overreacting, but I just don’t know.

  7. Being rejected sucks. There’s no other way to say it, and no explanation that is any more satisfying than the truth of it. You can’t be all things to all people, but also, you can’t not care. It just sucks. Anyway, his loss.
