Last week’s SYW started us off on a two-parter, with Share Your World meeting the world of Harry Potter. This week we have as usual Melanie’s muggle-themed queries alongside those of Roger, this time invoking The Chamber of Secrets.
Be sure to check out everyone’s answers and join in the fun!
Harry Potter can speak to snakes. If you were able to have conversations with any one animal, what animal would you like to speak to? What would be the topic of your first conversation?
Naturally, I’d like to be able to speak with our house pets: we’ve had dogs, cats, guinea pigs, fish, and a snapping turtle that we rescued from a flood as a baby and set back in the creek after wintering with us. When they’re injured or sick, it would have been nice to ask them where it hurt so the vet could treat them more efficiently.
More fancifully, my answer would be: BIRDS! They always seem to be chattering to one another in such a cheerful mien. I’d like to start off by asking them to let me hear all the songs they sing to God, from the very beginning. It could take a long time. But I expect I’ll have eternity. 🕊️
Because of the state-wide quarantines many of the local SPCA’s are having an influx of animals. You have decided that you would love to have a new pet. Would you go the normal wizardry route and pick and owl, a cat, or a toad? Or would you become a more eccentric wizard (like Hagrid, the games keeper) and seek out a three-headed dog, a dragon, or a unicorn? Please explain your answer.
The Dra-Gon: because deep inside this fearsome exterior is a heart of gold, waiting,
to unleash its awesome powers which are innumerable
and jostle one another for supremacy
until they are needed in the hour of greatest need
against that villainous monster, MALADORK, the unnameable but named all the same.
Neville Longbottom was gifted a Remembrall. This was a glass ball that would assist you in maintaining memories of things that you often forget. What would you want your Remembrall to help you remember?
I would want to remember everything good that I ever forgot.
Also, I would want to remember to feed Dra-Gon.
Here are this week’s questions on Melanie’s Share Your World.
Are you a clean or messy person? Both – it depends. Messy until the messiness gets in my way or clean until the cleanliness gets in my way. Generally speaking, rather clean.
If I asked you to describe yourself in five words – what would they be? A child of God —Simul justus et peccator (I’m counting all the Latin as one very pretentious word 🙂
Do you enjoy being out in nature? Walking in the woods or along a river path for me is like hearing the the slow movement of Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2.
Don’t freak out. You’ll recognize it as soon as you hear the first notes.
In the same way, being outdoors hiking or just sitting on a hillside shatters me with nostalgia and the longing of a traveller headed home.
What could you spend all day talking about? The grace of God .
Sneaking my entry in under the wire for this week on Melanie’s Share Your World.
Where Do You Not Mind Waiting?
Almost anywhere. As long as my patience isn’t tested beyond endurance.
But a doctor’s office is the worst. It’s not just the wait, it’s the anxiety. What, you wonder, has she discovered this time? Are my blood test results okay? Any more tests? Ultrasounds? Intracavernous, intramuscular, intrajunctual, intravenal-focal-macular-subjunctal eldritch crepuscular morbidities?
You get the picture.
What Is In Your Fridge Right Now? (you’re not required to give a comprehensive list)
Food. Perishable items. Cryptic, I know.
If You Could Only Speak One Word Today, What Would It Be?
Would You Rather Be Trapped In An Elevator Full Of Men With BO Or Three Soaked Dogs? (this is with the codicil that C-19 doesn’t exist)
I’d prefer the dogs, but I’d rather not be trapped anywhere, much less an elevator. Elevators give me the jitters. I keep imagining an earthquake the very moment the doors shut, and me — and the dogs, if you insist — stuck between a crack in the earth and poor cell reception.
An Attitude of Gratitude
Please feel free to share something good about last week. This is NOT mandatory, it is just if you’d like to.
I’m grateful for fellow bloggers who share their good humor, their talents, their energies in making this world a place worth sharing, specifically this week, encouragement from fellow creative artists and writers. Sláinte!🍻
