Share Your World – Week 39

20120917-233235.jpg

I am linking up with Cee’s Life Photography this week for a little Share Your World.

Here are the questions for the week.

  • Crunchy Peanut Butter or Smooth?

  • I will take smooth over crunchy any day.

    There is something about that creamy dreamy spread that is just scrumptious. I would say lip-smacking, but you know it always seems like the peanut buttery smack gets stuck to the roof of my mouth. Heh.

  • Is there a job you interviewed for and didn’t get that would have totally changed your life as it is now? Please explain.

  • In 1990, I made the cut from over 500 qualified personnel to one of about ten people hired from a mass job fair in Houston, Texas as an Eastern Airlines flight attendant. Yeah. Shocked me too. Me, all of eighteen years old, with zero experience. Maybe, I was just young enough to be trained well.

    Coffee?

    Peanuts?

    As much as flying the friendly skies was a dream come true. It did not happen after all. The Eastern Flight attendants went off strike and all the new hires were put on a waiting list – like forever. Then, Eastern went bankrupt. Yay, me.

    It’s hard for me to imagine that life. A flight attendant living in New York. Wow.

    I became a travel agent instead since all the other airlines only hired 21-year olds, and I had to find something travel related until I came of age.

    Guess what I still am?

  • What’s the most interesting “Ice Breaker” Question you have ever been asked? (This one is selfish, I’m always looking for more questions.)
  • Ohhhh! I have a good one for this. I am so terrible at really interesting questions. I bought a book.

    I thought it might help me stray away from the….Where are you from? How many siblings? Where did you go to school?

    Well…..not so much. Come to find out, I love the boring questions, but this is a great book!

    Just for fun, I turned to a random page, and this is what I got.

    If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?

    Oh yeah, this book is loaded with stuff like that.

  • If you had the choice between an RV, a sports car, an SUV, or a bicycle, which would you choose and why?
  • That’s easy. I’ll take an RV, and one that is not too big. I want to be able to get up in the mountains to those really cool parks only smaller type vehicles can get to. Explore with no limits.

    But mostly, I want to travel Highway 1, up and down the coast of California. I am kinda sorta (ALOT) in love with the view.

    1. Fun post…I love learning about people via posts like this 🙂

      My husband and I were just talking the other day about getting a not-too-big RV and driving around the country. Oh, and I am “crunchy” girl.

    2. That elusive airline stewardess dream, huh? I have driven the highway 1/101 route, and it is gorgeous in so many places. In another life, another time, we camped in a small campground near Big Sur for awhile and just explored. I loved it, and I’m sure you would too!

    3. The book of questions sounds like something I could get myself lost in Ha Ha I would go for crunchy myself and a good old road trip is something I could go for just about anytime 🙂

    4. I grew up in Southern California close to the beach. Wonderful views. I now live in Oregon and love the Oregon coast even more than the California coast. That is when you can get close enough to see it. Great answers. Thanks so much for playing along.

    5. Love that ice-breaker 🙂 I dreamt of becoming many things when I was young, including an air hostess, but realised later that it wasn’t the glamorous life it was made out to be.

    6. I was an EAL flight attendant ( 1972-1974). I remember getting off the plane in NY ( JFK?) and being shuttled to the Pan Am building because of the strike. When that strike happened it cut F/A’s and made the cut right after my name…At one point I was the most junior F/A of the entire Eastern Airline company.

      1. This one was in September/October of 1989. I think it was the second or third Eastern airlines. 🙂 I would have done training in Jan of 1990 in Clearwater, Florida and then had a base in JFK. I enjoy being a travel agent, so I guess it worked out best in the end. 🙂
