Share Your World: 6/4/18 ( comes with warning)

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

This one is really quiet easy as I actually still own it.  It’s a little pink pettycoat.  I remember wearing it beneath my pink dress on the day my mother and grandmother took me to have my picture taken.  I was 2 years old? Although the photos were in black and white, I remember the dress and pettycoat in pink and the photographer directing my pose. One with my chubby baby arms folded in front of me and the other in my favorite pose, hands pressed together and pressed to my cheek.

Regardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do?  

Hmmm…I’m such an eclectic person. The real question is what could I do every single day without becoming terminally bored! I like the idea of runners simply because they seem to truely enjoy it as opposed to multi-million dollar contracts but you and I both know that would NEVER happen!  If not, allow me to remind you.                                                                 Life according to laura: Running                           The question actually got me going on the subject of a sport I recently saw televised at the local sports bar, Cornholing.  Yes, you read that right! I—- was— spellbound! Transfixed with mouth agape, I watched as these full grown men tossed their little pouches at the wooden ramp with the hole for the tournament championship.  I kid you not, they were fist pumping and chest bumping in the most serious competition of, Honest to God.. the beanbag toss!!! Oh yes, that game we all played in preschool! This is a sport now! I was practically made of questions.  Let’s start with the new name. Who thought that renaming the bean bag toss to Cornholing would for 1. Masculinize it and  2. Make it sound, i don’t know, cool?  Surely they knew that in the era of my childhood the term ” cornholing” meant the equivalent of the British term ” buggering” or in technical terms, anal sex.  Therefore, I’m wondering who exactly wants to be the champion cornholer? Is this truly the trophy you want on your mantel? Are ya really going to wear the t-shirt?  And here I am feeling pervy for watching for an hour. ” What did you do today, Laura?”  I watched a couple guys cornholing 😂 ( fist pump, chest bump)

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?                                                                 Definitely passenger. My husband Clay has spent so many years on the job driving that he can learn a new place in a minute plus he’s a nerve wrecking side seat driver.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?                                              My sons birthday, today and my granddaughters birthday on weds, has me smiling.  I appreciate all of you, your posts and all your friendly and kind comments and that you take the time to make that connection. And, cornholing championship made me laugh!

  1. I’ve had the exact same thoughtsabout “cornhole”. It’s extremely popular at microbreweries. I prefer to watch “Giant Jenga” (it’s 4 or 5′ tall). I don’t play games, only watch them.

  2. Such a pretty little petticoat/dress, and you still have it! .. Oh, yeah, the bean bag toss. I never played it, and what they call it now just sounds so nasty. Thanks for the laughs! 🙂

    • You have got to google it!!!!! It is as I discribed, it is The Bean Bag Toss! You know in grade school or perhaps at young childs parties, perhaps a fair, the game where you try to toss the bean filled bag into a cup or hole? Thats it! Grown men have made a mad attempt to make this into a Sport! Dare I speak the words……? I suspect these are the ones who couldn’t play football quite as well. Lol

  3. OMG!!! That was my exact thoughts on this new (old) craze!!! I can’t believe it either!! As I live in a Midwest rural area, at least horseshoes are still horseshoes. Who know what that could turn into!! 😁

  4. LOL! When my husband first heard about the game of cornhole he had a fit. You put it much nicer than he did. “What the _____??? A Cornhole is an _______? People actually admit to playing that??? They have tournaments??? What the ____?” We still can’t hear about a cornhole game without laughing.
    Yep we always called it beanbag toss. LOL!

  5. OH my gosh you had me laughing! Seriously, “cornholing”, Hey that is one sport event I may just win a trophy at, but wait, is it just for men?? So that they can portray their masculinity?
    Love the picture of the dress you had a 2 years old and the memories you have of it. 🙂
    I totally agree with you, I will be in the passenger side any day, though being in the passenger side teaching my dear daughter how to drive can be a little nerve wracking!

    Thanks for the smiles!
