Friends In Low Places

1) In this song, Garth Brooks tells us he wore boots to a black-tie affair. When did you most recently get dressed up? What did you wear? not fancy dress, but I've been wearing dresses to school

2) The lyrics refer to The Oasis, which was a real bar in Concordia, Kansas. What's the name of the last bar or restaurant where you ordered a beverage? (Yes, Dunkin' counts.) Dunkin' this morning

3) Garth was having a stellar 2021. He kicked the year off by performing "Amazing Grace" at President Biden's inauguration in January, and then over the summer he received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor. Now that we're past the halfway mark, how's your year going? It's going well--I'm in a better mindset
4) But earlier this month, Garth cancelled the remaining August and September dates of his big concert tour. He's provided refunds for the 350,000 tickets that were sold. How do you tend to react when plans change? Are you easily annoyed, or do you roll with it? I'm usually ok with changes--especially canceled plans

5) Before he sang about having friends in low places, Garth hung around in some. When he was a struggling performer, he supported himself as a bouncer. What's the most physically taxing job you've ever had? waitressing--dang!  That's a physically demanding job
6) According to the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), Garth surpassed The Beatles as the top-selling recording artist of the last 30 years. Who do you listen to more often: Garth or the Beatles? the Beatles

7) Garth and singer Trisha Yearwood have been happily married for 15 years now. Trisha says that as much as she loves her husband, his whistling drives her crazy. Come clean: what's your most annoying habit? my lack of domestic enthusiasm

8) In 1990, when this song was a hit, Soviet President Gorbachev traveled first to Ottawa to meet Prime Minister Mulroney and then to Washington DC to meet President Bush. Do you have any travel plans? We want to hear about them, even if you aren't meeting any politicians or heads of state. I'm taking my parents to a surgical procedure in Central Maine next week

9) Random question: Your dear friend spends weeks planning a party. After just 30 minutes, you find yourself having a terrible time. Would you leave at the earliest (polite) opportunity? Or would you stay till the bitter end out of loyalty? if it's a party for the sake of a party, I'd leave--but if it's some sort of event, I'd stay

Waitressing has too be hard on your feet and central Maine must be a couple hour drive. I hope that it is not too bad of a surgical procedure.

I am lacking that domestic enthusiasm myself. Also the "be the bookkeeper for the farm & husbands business" enthusiasm. Not much enthusiasm here . . . Hope your parent(s) will be ok.

I agree with you on the domestic stuff. I am married to a man that likes to cook and cleans up after himself. Hope all goes well with your parents. Just noticed the George Clooney picture and yes I agree.

I used to love cleaning house when I was younger. My house was always spotless. I hurt now though, so I have to do housework in spurts, so it feels like it never gets done and it is never spotless anymore. Loved your answers! Have a great weekend!

"Lack of domestic enthusiasm." HA! I love that. I've got to remember that to use at some point. Hat's off to anyone who waits on tables. People can get rather nasty when it comes to their food.
