Size Matters

What is one topic you really like to talk about? Or something you really want to tell people?
I don’t talk that much, and I can go for days without saying hardly anything.  I do enjoy writing and some topics that I have repeatedly written about are politics and I share my stance on many issues.  I say how I feel about things that are going on.  I am against racism, I think that there are way too many guns in the hands of crazy people, I don’t like others telling women what they should do with their bodies, and I am against the pro-life movement.  I don’t even want to get started on Trump, as that is a whole other can of worms.

What do you normally never tell strangers about yourself? (be general, I don’t need to know details or invade privacy)
I usually tell people how awesome I am, but then I tell them that I am just teasing.  I like to make people smile and I would love to make this planet a better place to live on.  I don’t find my life to be all that interesting, but I enjoy writing stories where I can be an intriguing character in them.

Have you ever broken anything?  (can be health related, emotion related, or situation related – you define “broken anything” for your own satisfaction)
I have had stitches twice, but I have never broken any bones, that is unless you define a tooth as a bone.  I cracked a front tooth when I was playing basketball with my dad down in our basement.  I slipped and I had to get a root canal, which was expensive.  My mom found out that student dentists needed to perform these operations in order to get their dental degrees, so since I lived in Milwaukee at the time, I went to Marquette University for this procedure.  The student dentist was very nice to me, as I was helping him to get his degree and he bought me hamburgers, French fries and milkshakes when I went to visit him.  He gave me the root canal and he put a copper band on my tooth which made me look like a pirate, which was a pretty cool look for a kid.  He said that the copper band would only be a temporary fix and that when I got older that I would need a permanent crown.

Is having a big ego a negative trait or positive trait?
This sounds like a negative personality trait, but from what I read, many people think it is good for people to feel important, as long as they don’t become excessive and turn you into a narcissist.  If you start exhibiting over-confident behavior and arrogance, then you have taken this too far.  Trump has a monster ego, as he feels that he is more important than anyone else and he would like to be king for life, as he thinks he is better than others.  He is full of narcissistic tendencies, having a superiority complex that is bigger than I have ever seen, and he is very self-absorbed.  I can’t stand looking at his stupid face.

What aspects of your city or neighborhood are you grateful for?
It is mostly quiet and peaceful in my neighborhood, as I live in a gated community and this keeps out other people that don’t belong here.

  1. Thanks Jim for Sharing Your World! Pirate Jim has a certain ring to it 😉 But how painful is breaking (off?) a tooth. I’ve inadvertently ground mine together sometimes and that stings like five furies. Breaking one is supposed to hurt like the Dickens! My sympathies. I personally find you to be a private sort of person, despite your characterizations in tales. Writing is a form of sharing ourselves too. I’d bet you have a vast fund of knowledge (especially about the Dead) and could talk reasonably for hours on a variety of subjects. Wanting to do that is another thing, sometimes people like the ‘less said the better’ option of life or are reserved in their talking for a variety of reasons. I still am really sorry you don’t feel you have friends IRL, I just read this morning that you DO have at the very least one on-line friend in Fandango. Excellent choice too IMO. I, myself, like your candor in your writing. Have a good week! 🙂
