I'll Be There

1) In this song, Mariah pledges to "have faith in all you do." Have you recently given someone support or a pep talk? just today I gave a pep talk to a friend who's battling anxiety

2) Mariah was at the center of a controversy in Times Square on New Year's Eve when she had audio problems and claimed she could not perform. Times Square is at the busy intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue. If we went to the busy intersection nearest your home, what would we find? (A store? A church? McDonald's?) on two corners: buildings that are empty and for rent, on the other two corners: a legal office and another mysterious office building (I say mysterious because I have no idea what it is)

3) Her nickname in high school was Mirage because she cut school so often. Did you ever play hookey? I play hookey more often as a teacher than I ever did as a student

4) Mariah doesn't apologize for spoiling her dogs, who have been known to travel by limo. Do you know anyone who treats his/her pets like people? my parentals are wrapped around the paw of Maggie (ok, ok, I am too!)

5) Mariah has something to fall back on. She studied cosmetology and worked as a hair sweeper in a salon. When you get your hair cut, do you socialize with the stylist? I've had the same stylist for... 26 years and we talk about everything

6) When married to her first husband, Mariah went vegetarian. Tell us about last night's dinner. Would it qualify as a vegetarian meal? no, it was a meat lasagna

7) This week's song was introduced by The Jackson 5. Think of your favorite Michael Jackson song. Did he record it solo or with his brothers? solo Michael

8) In 1992, when this song was popular, The Mall of America opened. Located in Minnesota, it's the biggest mall in the nation, with more than 400 stores. Think about the last thing you purchased. Were you shopping out of necessity, or for fun? necessity

9) Have you ever shoplifted? (Don't worry. We won't tell.) it was a life-changing episode for me to be caught although it was very hush-hush

I long for a hairdresser. It would be wonderful to have a hairdresser to talk to. And that wee Maggie, she must be adorable. Give her a hug for me? Well, give one to your hairdresser,too!

These days I have been taking to people to allay their fears a lot more than I ever wanted.

Wow. #9 leads me to believe your dad was a maestro when it came to getting through to you and playing on your emotions.

I actually had a different answer to #9 but I deleted it. I did some major S.L. in my teen years. I was never caught, though. And usually after I'd taken it and walked out with it, I went back in and put it back. I just liked the thrill of it.

I laughed at your answer to #3 because I just ordered a t-shirt that says "I often think of skipping school...then I remember I'm the bus driver."

Well, at least you are paid to play hooky as a teacher. As a student, you're usually paying to play.
