Sharing my world- July 11, 2022

Melanie, our gracious host has asked these questions, this week;


How did you spend the money from your very first job?

I never had a job with pay check. But we used to get money from all the elders in the family on Eid. Mostly we used it to buy stuff we wanted/ needed. Once I remember I was in grade 5 and our country was facing a huge internal displacement of millions of people due to floods. The Red Cross was collecting money for their rehabilitation and I donated all my Eidie ( Eid money) to them. It was I think the most satisfying use of my money.

Would You Rather Look Like A Potato, Or Feel Like A Potato? (Note. I have no idea why they used the word “potato”, but just went with it. Answer any way you like, this question is purely for fun)


I don’t think I look like a potato yet. Perhaps an apple, which is round in the middle. So I would rather not look like a potato, I’d rather feel like one. Everyone loves a potato be it fried, baked or mashed!

What were the best pair of shoes you have owned?

I discovered Fit flops, a European brand of shoes that have arch support for my flat feet. After getting my first pair, I have fallen in love with them and I now own lots of them in every color I can find.

Besides war and diplomacy, what would be the best way for countries to settle disputes?

Any country that has a grievance against another, the leaders should be shut/ confined in a room without food till they come to an amicable solution. It’ll take less than a day.


In these often depressing times, how do you find the bright spots?

I look for good people doing good things. This restores my faith in basic goodness of humanity. And I think it’s only way to feel hope for the future.

On another positive note, we celebrated Eid-Ul-Adha on Sunday and it was a good day to get together with the family.

All decked up for Eid!

Thanks Melanie for these fun questions!

    I like your answer to the potato question. You’re right potatoes are good any which way.
    Those Fit-Flops are cool. I’d never heard of them, but I need to find some for myself.
    Excellent solution for the peace question, too. 🙂

  3. Thanks Sadje for Sharing Your World. I’m glad your celebration was fulfilling and happy! You are beautiful, and your photograph shows your kindness and good nature, as well as a stunning smile! It sounds like Fit Flops ought to pay you a commission because you’ve brought them to the attention of a lot of folks! I’m glad you found shoes that are attractive and healthy that way. The diabetic shoes, which are NOT attractive, come in black, and black and did I mention black? Those ‘old lady’ type shoes that you see elderly women wearing. Very sturdy, but I can’t get past the look of them. Yet. I have to work on lowering my aesthetic standards a bit. Have a great week! 🙂

    1. Thank you Melanie, your very kind my friend. I wish the shoe company would pay me a commission but alas! I found that on Amazon they are cheaper because they are on sale mostly. Thanks for lovely questions


  4. I adore every answer, from the potato, to the sandals, and especially your take on leaders being confined in a room with no food until an agreement is made. Excellent, post and share, Sadje!

  5. I enjoy making anonymous donations. Some of our grocery stores have a round up your change option. Sometimes it goes to local schools, and other times to hunger (to help feed others) programs. 🙂

    I do hope your family had a lovely holiday.

    We had a lovely weekend filled with birthday celebrations last weekend. 🎂
