Today I’m joining in with Sandman’s Q&A which poses some interesting questions.
What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?
So many things that Millennials do I don’t get the point of. Taking photos of your meal but not actually eating it. “Influencers” and the people who follow them. Tik Tok, to name a few.
What quirky things do people do where you are from?
I don’t know if we’re quirkier in Tasmania than any other part of Australia. Tasmanians call a reverse cycle air conditioner a heat pump and even more confusingly to me they call soft drinks (Coke etc) cordial. at least the older people do. Maybe it is an Australian quirk that every state seems to have different names for things. Vegemite is a huge Australian quirk.
What are some things you wish you could unlearn?
I don’t really want to unlearn anything. I’m more afraid of forgetting things I once knew how to do.
Who is someone that you miss having in your life?
Of course, I miss David even after six years. I miss my friends from Hobart and the Huon Valley, the girls at the Op Shop where I used to work and my other group of friends that meet regularly for coffee or lunch. I miss my friend Graham who died last year. I hope to see the others again when I can visit the south but I’ll never see or talk to him again.
