The Friday Fives

1. Without saying your age, what was something that was trending during your childhood?

Tang breakfast drink.

2. Have you ever known a murderer?

Unfortunately, yes. My first cousin Mark is doing time in the state prison in Sterling for killing his wife back in 2018 or so. Spooky. My parents basically raised the kid, sheltering him from a lot of domestic violence in his home and watching him after school. He is about four or five years older than me – we aren’t close but is was pretty close to my mother.

3. You’ve just been granted a superpower that only causes a minor but extremely irritating inconvenience for the villain. What is it?

Immediate volcanic irritable bowel syndrome.

4. What random sentence can end an argument?

Yes, but Billy Joel now has all the butter!

5. What song did you realize was actually really dark when you got older?

Dr. Hook’s “When you’re in Love With a Beautiful Woman.” The dude is a bit possessive and paranoid. I don’t think that relationship is going to last.
