Saturday 9: Dedicated to the one I love

  1. The lyrics include the line, "Love can never be exactly what we want it to be." Are you happy with your love life?
    -- No
  2. Another lyric is, "Each night before you go to bed, whisper a little prayer for me." Do you say your prayers?
    -- I talk to myself to process things… it’s essentially the same thing.
  3. Mama Michelle and Papa John were married in real life. It didn't end well -- not for the couple and not for the band. Do you believe you could work successfully with a romantic partner?
    -- I’d like to think I would. But each successive attempt makes me wonder if the problem is… (gulp)… me?
  4. After the band broke up, Michelle tried her hand at acting and eventually became a regular on the nighttime soap, Knott's Landing. Of course, she could live off of her music royalties while she learned her new craft. If money was no object, what career would like to try?
    -- I would love to have the funds to gain licensure as a therapist.
  5. There is a famous rumor -- completely false -- that Mama Cass died while eating a ham sandwich. Can you think of another urban legend?mister-rogers -- I love urban legends. Ted Bundy killed my roommate and left a note on the mirror saying, “I’m glad you didn’t turn on the lights” OR don’t flash your headlights because you’ll get killed as part of a gang initiations OR Bill Gates will give a dollar to some just cause every time you share this image… but my favorite. is that Mr. Rogers was a sniper for the US Marines.
  6. In the 1960s, every high school girl wanted to wear her hair like Michelle and Cass -- long and straight. Can you recall a fashion trend from your school days?-- Being a child of the 80’s, I rocked the acid wash jeans and a mullet. Sadly, I cannot provide photographic proof.  
  7. With the Fourth of July falling on Thursday, are you able to enjoy a looooong four-day holiday weekend?
    -- I have time off from work and I have two of my children for the weekend. We went to see a minor league baseball game on Wednesday. Financial limitations prevent much beyond that in the way of ‘enjoyment’.
  8. Many communities have parades to celebrate Independence Day. Have you ever ridden on a float or marched in a parade?
    -- I rode in a parade once or twice on the float for the company my parents worked for when I was in high school. We threw candy at unsuspecting people… good times.
  9. In honor of the Fourth of July, name your favorite Founding Father.
thomasjefferson-3-- “History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.” – Thomas Jefferson, 1813

  1. I never heard that about Mr. Rogers. I admit the mental picture is staggering. What an interesting quote from TJ. How very relevant!
