The Friday Fives

1. How do you take your tea?

Iced, Iced, Baby.  I really enjoy a good, cold iced tea.  Fresh brewed if possible.  Oddly, it is considered an abomination to all of mankind in England and Germany and to I guess a larger degree most of the world. It is pretty much a very American thing.

2. God passes you the aux cord and lets you put on a song for the entire world to listen to. Which song will you play?

Due to the influence of my good friend Rev. Ed – I suggest the Whitney Houston stunner “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” Perhaps such a song would bring on world peace.

3. What simple task are you surprisingly bad at?

Handwriting, with spelling a close second. I have always had bad handwriting going back to special education tutoring in school in hopes of making it somewhat legible.  When it comes to spelling, I used to be a great speller, but over the years, due to auto correct on phone apps and word processors, my spelling has declined because I don’t have to rely on the intricate rules that I had at one time mastered.

4. What are you STILL mad about?

November 9, 2018.  The dumbfounding election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.  I still can’t wrap my head around the reality of this.

5. Dated: What’s the best music video you’ve ever seen?

Aha – Take on Me.  A strong second – Michael Jackson – Thriller.

  1. 1. I don’t. I rarely drink tea.

    2. Two word: Chicken Dance.

    3. Making a burger. I’m so bad at it, that I haven’t tried in years.

    4. That thing Tina Garcia said to me on the first day of 1st grade. She was just jealous of how many crayons I had, but her words haunt me still.

    5. Best if of course subjective, but I’ll give a nod to REM’s “End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine).” In retrospect, it’s practically like watching an Instagram feed flash by one’s eyes. Visually it was ahead of its time.
