What’s the biggest screw up in the kitchen that you were responsible for?

I forgot to take the burner covers off.


What, in your opinion, makes people believe absurd conspiracy theories?

Three reasons:

The desire for understanding and certainty: Uncertainty sucks. Conspiracy theories provide a sense of understanding and certainty that make everything feel better.

The desire for control and security: Conspiracy theories provide a needed sense of control over the ambiguity of life.

The desire to maintain a positive self-image: Studies show marginalized people are more prone to believe in conspiracy theories.


In 40 years what will people be nostalgic for?




Is a hot dog a sandwich?  

Aw, man, this one is tough!

A sandwich is defined as “an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other filling between them, eaten as a light meal.”

So… yes. A hot dog is two pieces of bread (a bun is technically two pieces of bread) with meat (the hot dog), and condiments, eaten as a light meal. Unless you’re me, then it’s eaten as a full, glutinous, my-stomach-expands-like-a-boa-constrictor meal.

But the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council says no. “Our verdict is…a hot dog is an exclamation of joy, a food, a verb describing one ‘showing off’ and even an emoji. It is truly a category unto its own.”

I hear you don’t want to mess with the folks at the NHDSC, so I’m going with no. It’s not a sandwich.

What wonderful thing happened to you this week that you’d like to share?  It can be a gratitude moment or something that just made you feel very happy at the time or made you laugh.

Fall is coming.

Sharing My World - October 15, 2018

Self-published on Amazon. Have some content on Wattpad. Sometimes I'm on Twitter. I have a Facebook page. I like to write short stories. I can be snarky. You can find me preparing the garden for winter.
