Share Your World-2013-Week-26

Are you left or right handed?


I always say I’m left handed….and add that I am ‘ambiguous’ (tongue in cheek). It also depends on what activity I am involved in. For example, I write, or scrawl, with my left hand. My teachers gave up trying to convert me. Right handed golfer, left hand for throwing a ball. And I do take a small amount of delight in watching the expression on restaurant staff when they see the dining cutlery has been swapped around.

Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say?

Only if I am calling someone and then it is usually restricted to writing down a few notes.

Crunchy Peanut Butter or Smooth Peanut butter? Anything with your peanut butter?

Crunchy. This is the only ‘food’ which HAS to have nuts in it. I have eaten meals where the cook has thrown in half peanuts which managed to be in a vertical position when I chewed my food. The pointy end of a nut being rammed into one’s gums I’d not pleasant.

PS:  Peanut butter and jam is the best late afternoon snack if I am in the mood….although with cholesterol etc., to think of that treat does not happen all that often.  If anyone wondering what Aussie jam is I have had a lengthy discussion (in the comments) with bdh63 earlier in the day.

How many rings before you answer the phone?

 

Depends how far away from the phone I am. I did work for a person who had a phone installed in his toilet! No way…….

  3. Peanut butter should be smooth. I will never see eye to eye on this with you. Those bigger pieces of peanut are best in pad thai. I’m getting a craving. I’ve never noticed you being ambiguous before, but now that you mention it…

      • That’s okay, a little disagreement makes life more interesting and more honest. If two people always agree — somebody’s lying. Thanks for the charming post. It made me smile, and it made me think of pad thai, and I love when my thoughts go there. 🙂

      • Wow, a life lived without pad thai. I feel for you. I can’t imagine a picture on the internet would convey the genius of rice noodles, chicken, scallion, bean sprouts, chunks of peanut and a sauce divine. The taste, the smell. Oh, the craving… Are there no Thai restaurants in your neck of the woods?

      • Must confess to having only ever eaten at a Thai restaurant once and that was last summer. Usually Chinese is our Asian fare. Just cannot imagine peanut in a meal. The rest is yum…although I had to Google scallion (spring onion, Down Under, I think). And when it comes to food there is not much that I will turn away from. When the weather warms we will have to eat out more, although at the moment we are just hoping for good health until we have been to Africa …..about seven weeks to go. May sound silly, but holidayed at the Gold Coast (Queensland) last year. First day there I was at the doctor and did neither of fully recovered until September and warmer weather.

      • It’s always sad when vacation rolls around and your body stages a complete meltdown. I always seem to get sick on vacations, especially with young children in the house. Good luck to you!!

      • Strawberry jam? In US, jam means it has pieces of fruit. Jelly is clear and all the pieces of the fruit are strained off, so it’s all juice. I prefer jam, myself. There’s a place on Cape Cod that makes Peach-Blueberry that is fabulous. Yum!

      • Theoretically, that is jam. However, these days I am sure some companies are making what you call jelly, or rushing end product past,a strawberry field and call it strawberry jam. The best jams do have fruit in them. Marmalade (orange peel, maybe lemon as well), blackberry (nearly all fruit) are top of m list. Some companies are lousy with the fruit.

      • Just wave the strawberry over it and call it jam, what a funny image. Sort of the way my dad makes martinis — he just waves the vermouth over the gin. In fact, if they were stored next to each other in the cabinet, then that’s enough!

      • You have it in one. Doesn’t matter what the subject is if it is not very good, someone will come up with that line. For example: a sheep dog which is not very good will draw the comment; “….it’s father drove past a sheep farm once…” Have not heard of it being applied to drink though….even storing them alongside each other…I like it.
