Share Your World Halloween Series – I Saw Dead Bodies

It’s almost a week into October with none of the usual signs. Normally there will be halloween or even Christmas decorations in some places by this time of the year. Not that I expected any of it. It would be a surprise to find, if any. Anyway, here goes Melanie’s questions (and link) to join:

When was the last time you tried something new?  How did that go for you?

Just last weekend and last night. I published a post about it that attracted some business blogs, not sure how to feel about that. Hubby and I watched the Trump-Biden debate (regrettably) over youtube, tried a spanish bistro beside the clinic we went to last weekend and visited some parks we used to frequent. Last night, hubby pulled an all-nighter for a new job and I tried to work the same hours on my stuff but dozed off around midnight.

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

This, too, shall pass.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

I’ve always felt older than my age. Nowadays, I feel like 50 in terms of life experiences, though I don’t look it thanks to Asian genes (and being in my 30s chronologically).

Lastly, I’ll be doing one “Halloween” themed question per week during October.  Those who don’t observe the holiday are welcome to answer or to ignore it as they wish.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:

Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

Yes.. I can remember three occasions, too memorable to forget. The first time, it was a pile of dead bodies for a news story of a tragic accident I covered back in high school. The second time was when I volunteered to feed/debrief kids/survivors in a community hit by a tsunami. Then almost a decade ago I saw two people I know die right before my eyes. One of the reasons I’ve always felt older than my age, seeing dead bodies in different contexts.


Do you enjoy any seasonal traditions around this time of year?

Around this time usually we start shopping for gifts the for family, especially for the kids (nieces/nephew). Sometimes we bring the kids to halloween parties at work.

  1. Thanks so much for Sharing Your World with us today! Wonderful answers to all the questions, but that corpse question? I’m so sorry you’ve had such a large exposure over your life! It indeed might ‘age’ a person prematurely. You seem to have handled it with aplomb though. And no, I would have been shocked to hear you were over 35. You don’t look (to me) ‘old’ at all! Have a wonderful week!
