E.M.’s World – 11/2/2021

These are my answers to Share Your World. If you want to share with us, click here.

What was the very first popular song you ever remember taking a liking to? I’m not talking about children’s songs or old traditional songs… but the kind of songs you’d hear on the radio.

Are you one of those people who get queasy at the sight of blood, or could you watch an open heart surgery?

So, it depends. I have been a cutter since I was very young, and that blood doesn’t make me queasy, but other people’s blood spewing out of their arms will definitely make me feel icky. I have to look away when they draw blood or put in an IV. Blood and I have a love/hate relationship.

Who or what do you feel is lurking right behind you, just waiting to ambush you and make your life a living hell (or “heck” for those with delicate sensibilities)?

My PK energy…always. I am my own worst enemy at times.

What is the gaudiest thing you have ever worn?

Plastic framed glasses in 7th grade…I wish I could find a picture to show you. My mother gave me a mullet with a perm, and my glasses swallowed my entire face. Or at least it felt like it lol.

Fess up! What was something you did as a child that got you into BIG trouble?

Let’s see. I ran away three times. I got caught smoking a lot, once while at school. My mom’s boyfriend was on the school board, and they were touring the school grounds. We were outside the cafeteria, and I was caught with the cigarette in my hand. I got in so much trouble at home and at school. I got in-house detention, and at home, I got grounded.

What are you looking forward to as the festive season approaches?

Family! It’s everything. I look forward to feeling better and spending some quality time with the ones I love most on this planet.

E.M.’s One Liner Wednesday

Linda Hill has a challenge called One Liner Wednesdays, and I thought I would use a picture to tell a story. I stepped away from the dark side for a moment, and I hope you enjoy my first one liner. Don’t forget to check out her blog and give some love back. This is another really cool challenge to increase creativity *smiles*

After a beautifully perfect morning, she found herself in a rain of leaves on a cool fall day, and she found herself happy, content, and feeling wonderful for the first time in a while.

Autumn Finally!

Orange and black colors
Filling my mind with delight
Fake webs hanging above the doors
Loving the season with all of my might

My own Nightmare Before Christmas
As the cold winds blow into the trees
The autumn skies glowing on the brush
The falling leaves brings my heart to appease

The night time brings forth it’s somber tune
Exceptional sounds fill the air at night
As the barn owl hoots at the dark moon
As the coyote’s howl brings us a fright

Jacket weather and the nice cool breeze
No more roasting against the hot sun
A good time to give your loved ones a squeeze
Now is the time for bonfires and fun
