So Emotional

1) Whitney sings that she keeps her lover's photo beside her bed. What's on your bedside table? a variety of books, bookmarks, a swiffer duster, touch lamp, landline phone that I had disconnected but keep forgetting to unplug and put away

2) She's getting frustrated, waiting for the phone to ring. If your phone were to ring right now, who would you expect to be on the other end? I wouldn't have any idea

3) The video was filmed at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, PA. It seats 6,200. As the nation reopens from Covid19, would you feel comfortable sitting knee-to-knee with a stranger in an arena like this? absolutely not

4) This week's featured artist, Whitney Houston, appeared on the daytime drama As The World Turns. She played herself, performing with Jermaine Jackson at the Miss Cinderella contest in the fictional town of Oakdale. Have you ever been hooked on a soap opera? oh yes!  Guiding Light for my school years (my college friends & I would make a point of having viewing parties) and then Days of our Lives--I love a good sudsy soap

5) Whitney had a sweet tooth, and her favorite breakfast cereal was Fruity Pebbles. Do you often eat cereal for lunch or dinner?
I do--but I don't like milk so it's dry

6) At Whitney's wedding to Bobby Brown, her bridesmaids all wore lavender dresses and the groomsmen had custom made alligator shoes. Have you ever "stood up" for a friend or relative? If so, do you remember what you wore? I've been in several weddings and the thing I remember most are the dyed-to-match shoes that were the most uncomfortable shoes ever

7) In 1987, the year this song was popular, Cher won the Oscar for Moonstruck. Her most famous line was, "Snap out of it!" When you think of Cher, do you first think of her movies, her TV show, or her music?
I think of her--I suppose it's what context she's brought to mind

8) Michael Douglas won the Oscar that year for Wall Street. His most famous line was, "Greed is good." His character goes on to say that, "Greed in all its forms -- greed for life, for money, for love, for knowledge -- has marked the upward surge of all mankind." Do you agree? nope

9) Random question: When you woke up this morning, were you ready to get out of bed? Or do you wish you could have snoozed for a bit longer? I snoozed although I'm looking forward to the day

Ah yes, the bridesmaid shoes! Another outlay of cash that we're told we'll get a lot of wear out of. :)

I think live music and theater will be the last to come back. A lot of people are just not ready to sit so close to each other.

One of the nice things about being retired is that you can nap whenever you want.

Until recently our disconnected and useless phone sat on the bedside table, too. I finally unplugged it and tossed it the other day. Our granddaughter plays with the second one that was in the living room.

Oh the bridesmaid shoes! Yes, I remember having to have them dyed also. Loved your answers. Have a nice weekend.

I eat my cereal dry, too. I think more people do than we realize. I used to think I was the only one but nope.
