Machines, appliances, and gadgets sometimes they feel like they have their own personalities– from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most human machine you own?
My human machine I think is my little chopper, I use it often when I chop onions, garlic and ginger, it’s helpful for small things I do not have to go down to the basement to get the large food processor. It works like a charm and does it fast. This is the only gadget I think helps me out in times of need.
What was your favorite plaything as a child? Do you see any connection between your life now , and your favorite childhood toy.
I grew up in a large family, I didn’t have a plaything which solely belonged to me. We played with a variety of things, one of these was we’d stack up seven flat stones one on top of the other and with a tennis ball we tried to hit the stack and scatter the pieces of stones, we continued to play until all the stones were scattered if we missed a shot it would be the turn of the next sibling.
Our best plaything was the board games, Monopoly, Scrabble and one other which I cannot remember.
We had a lot of fun playing , in the game of Monopoly, my eldest brother was always the banker, when he needed money to keep playing, he’d take some when he thought we were not looking, but I caught him each time. We were very noisy my mom said I was the loudest, I had to stop playing and help her with some chores.
I cannot see any connection with our game of Monopoly and my life now. I have the board games, I don’t play at all, I miss playing with my brothers. I’m not the noisy one even if we play once in a while. So there is no connection between life then and now.
