The Friday Five

superstickiesGlitterGoldThere’s either been no questions, or not really very good ones, so it’s been awhile.

1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
It depends. When I’m really ill, I feel 99, but generally, I’m an idiot ten-year old, or maybe 15-18.

2.Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Never trying. Duh!

3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
Too soon old, too late smart? Have you heard that? The older I get, the more I realize how much time and energy I wasted doing things I didn’t want to do because I thought I should, or someone was pressuring me, or whatever. The liking things we don’t do, I don’t know. Because we think we shouldn’t, or we think we don’t have time. We forget that there is just one life. That’s all we get. Do it now. You might not get another opportunity.

4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Probably. I’m all talk and no walk, or something. Besides, I’m ill, there’s a lot I just can’t do.

5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
I wish people would develop working brains. The level of stupidity, evidenced by all the Trump supporters, just boggles the mind. It’s frightening, how easily led people are. This is how the Nazis got into power, this is how the Taliban did their thing, and yet people cannot see it.GlitterGold
The weather. It is going to be 95 today, at least, and it’s an orange air day, which is not good. This is the third orange air day this year. Air pollution. Not a good thing.

  1. Too soon old, too late smart? I have heard that saying and I think it’s brilliant.

    And may I say, Amen to your #5.

    • It’s an old saying, I don’t know from where. I’m not holding out a lot of hope for number 5, it kind of seems like people’s brains are working less and less well. I blame poor education for a lot of the problems. We need to pay teachers like we pay sports figures. Their jobs are so much more important than playing games professionally. Priorities. We need to teach critical thinking, not passing tests. Maybe in an alternate universe. Thanks for commenting, btw, Anonymous.
