The Morning Dawdler Q&A – 1/7/2023

way back in the day

we fended off bullies our way

no sissies were we

what took place had to be

today a different world

best to travel in a tank

wear a suit of armor

and scream blankety-blank

grey vs gray correctness no matter

me, I prefer the first over the latter

we in the US tend to use color vs colour

scaredy-cat me afraid of the dark?

the boogie man under the bed

creepy spider above my head

yikes! turn on the lights!

where do I begin

the mall, boutiques, and antiques

those were the days my friend

these days, its Amazon for me

I guess our love affair was meant to be

Pay as much attention to the path as the destination and your whole journey will become an experience.” -Unknown

Rory’s The Morning Dawdler Q&A

Have you ever learned to fight or taken self-defence lessons – why did you feel this was necessary or was this something that you wanted to know to feel safer?

Do you spell grey as gray and also is it colour or color? 

Are you now or have you ever been afraid of the dark?

Where do you prefer to do most of your clothing shopping – online or in-store?

  2. One of the problems with bullies these days is that you can’t even fight back (in school). Both the bully and the victum get punished.
    And with all the arms up over who should be punished for past mistakes it is a wonder anyone gets along…

    Sad state indeed. We are almost afraid to help others. But I do read some good stories about strangers helping strangers. One struck me – mom sent a Thanksgiving invite (accidently to a stranger) – but after the confusion settled she invited the student anyway and they’ve been getting together and staying in touch thoughout the year.

      1. I like reading about how folks help other people. There was a guy who did one of those online fund raisers so an elder man who was a greeter at a box store could retire!

  3. Wow Eugenia what an open minded blogger you are and you really are good at crafting a post and then pose questions in the end.

    To answer these questions here are my answers , I spell gray as grey I think it is the same thing and I am definitely afraid and have a phobia for the dark and lastly, I prefer to do my own shopping in store so that I get the right fit for my body size👏

    1. Thank you, Mthobisi! The spelling of gray/grey depends on where one is from. I understand why you would prefer buying clothes in a store since you are a fashion expert, my friend.

      Since I am retired, I buy most of my clothes online. Even though I am at home most of the time, I still like to dress and not live in sweats. I am pretty successful at buying clothes that fit properly, give or take a few boo-boos! Take care and stay safe.

  4. I learned to fight because I was bullied. I never trained professionally, though.

    I spell it grey, but most horse people do. I spell it color too.

    When I was very young, I was afraid of the dark and loud noises.

    This was such an amazing poem, and thank you so much for sharing it with us 😊🥰

  5. This poem is a nostalgic and humorous look back at the past. The use of rhyme adds a playful tone and the contrasting old and new experiences make for an interesting read. The final quote adds a reflective and thoughtful note to the poem. Overall, a fun and well-written piece.

  6. What a fun and nostalgic post! I love the imagery of fending off bullies and the line “no sissies were we” it really captures the spirit of the past. Your thoughts on the different spellings of “grey” and “color” versus “colour” give an interesting perspective on language and cultural differences. I also appreciate the humor in the line “scaredy-cat me afraid of the dark?” and the mention of the boogie man under the bed. Your preference for online shopping with Amazon is a testament to how much things have changed in terms of shopping styles. It’s also great how you’ve included a quote about the importance of paying attention to the journey and not just the destination. I enjoyed reading your Q&A and the different questions you’ve asked yourself, it gives an insight on personal experiences. Thanks for sharing!
