One Bad Apple

1) This song is a play on the old saying that one bad apple can spoil the bunch, or that the bad behavior of one member can reflect badly on the whole group. Do you think that's true? Isn't that the premise of positive peer pressure?
2) The Osmonds began as The Osmond Brothers, a barbershop quartet that performed at the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Today there are 9 Disney Resorts all around the world, as far away as Shanghai. Have you ever been to a Walt Disney property? I have not, yet
3) By the time the Osmonds made this record, Donny had joined the group and became their breakout star. Without looking it up, can you name any of the other four brothers who performed in video clip? ok, without looking it up--Jay, Allen, Merle (I know that's not it but that's as close as I can get) so I got three-ish or two-and-a-halfish
4) In the 1970s, adolescent girls learned through teen magazines that Donny's favorite color is purple, and that he was especially fond of purple socks. Today, socks are a very big business. There are designer sock manufacturers and even a sock of the month club. Is there a wardrobe item you're very particular about? scarves

5) Donny and younger sister Marie had their own TV variety show. One regular segment had them performing a medley of popular songs, and it began with Marie singing, "I'm a little bit country," followed by Donny's musical reply, "I'm a little bit rock and roll." In this regard, are you more like sister or brother? I'm a Donny
6) Donny's popularity continues today. Fans have seen him win Dancing with the Stars (season 9) and come in as a runner up on the first season of The Masked Singer. Do you watch either of these shows -- or other competition series, like American Idol, The Voice, America's Got Talent, etc.? I absolutely love competition shows--Top Chef is my favorite followed closely by Alone

7) Donny has also appeared on Broadway. He surprised audiences and got rave reviews as arrogant bad guy Gaston in Disney's Beauty and the BeastTell us about a time when your behavior surprised those who know you well.
Most people are surprised by how well-traveled I am

8) Donny is also a grandfather, many times over! Sam admits she's not crazy about that revelation because it makes her feel old. What's something that makes you feel your years? finding out I'm older than my students' parents by a decade or so

9) Random question: We're filling a pinata with your favorite candies. What should we buy? Definitely Reese's cups, other than that--I'm not a fruity candy fan

Knowing that my brother is a grandfather was eye-opening. Age is relative, though. I think.

Oh gosh, I hear you on #8! I always hated that when I was a youth leader and when I drove a bus. That or finding out they were born the year I graduated or got married or something. Ouch. lol

I totally hear ya on being older than kids' parents. Someone cutting my son's hair years ago referred to me as his 'grandma.' There goes your tip, lady! LOL It's taught me to be very careful about addressing the adults in children's lives.
