Melanie posts four or five different questions each week to answer. Don’t forget to check out what other people have answered.
How comfortable are you speaking in front of large groups of people? When I started teaching in a private school, I was often asked to do presentations to parents and other teachers. The moment I stood in front of everyone my knees knocked and my throat dried up. Later , after years of experience in front of adults, the same thing happened at the start. But once I got going I enjoyed the experience. Once, my work husband and I, were doing a parent science night, in front of full hall. It was actually fun having the parents be the students. I agreed to repeat the performance again, as needed.
What would be the best thing you could reasonably expect to find in a cave? Not me
What did you think was going to be amazing but turned out to be horrible? I agreed to live in an old rental my then spouse’s parents owned. They offered us to pay no rent if me would “work” on the place. It turned out skunks were living underneath the house. The bathtub, which was an afterthought, was not collected to any plumbing and just drained underneath the house. The hot and cold water spickets were independant of each other so getting “warm” water was a challenge. To get through the living room to the bathroom, you had to climb over the couch. The list goes on……
What’s the silliest thing you’ve observed someone get upset about? After about three months of marriage, my ex, packed his clothes to leave me because he didn’t like the wall I decided to put the dressor on. Oy vey!
Please feel free to share something that gave you an uplifted spirit during this past week. (Optional) This week I enjoyed traveling down the rabbit hole that is Ancestry. It brought about a way to leave the current sadness of the world behind. I hit some brick walls at the fourth generation. But I was also able to find relatives 25 generations back on some lines. I find it fascinating to see the length of the lives, the number of children, and the long path taken to reach the US.
