Share Your World – 2015 Week #1

how-to-block-calls-1How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?

What are you a “natural” at doing?

How often do you get a haircut?

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?

I used to get pissed and hang up on them, but then I decided to have fun instead. Depending on who is calling, I would just repeat one word over and over. So if the Diabetic Association called, I would just say “SUGAR!” any time they said anything. If it's one of those cruise things I would just keep saying “Titanic sank. Everybody died!” over and over. I could hear the caller trying not to laugh. Eventually they hang up and they eventually take me off the list. This has worked really well as I hardly ever get any calls now, but I miss having fun.

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Cooking. I used to “experiment” with food from the time I was about seven. Eventually became a chef.

How often do you get a haircut?

Every five to six weeks. It's the one thing I am vain about.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

A hike.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week I had a really peaceful and enjoyable New Year with my beautiful wife and the pups and kitty. This week I am looking forward to finally go to the movies after life just getting in the way.
