Things

1) In this song, Bobby Darin is sitting beside his window, looking out onto a crowded avenue. What's the view outside your nearest window? the roof of the post office
 
2) He likes to remember the romantic things he and his girl used to do, like walking in the park. When did you most recently go for a leisurely stroll? Did you have a destination in mind, or were you just enjoying the walk for its own sake? I was walking in the park--on trails through the woods

3) He notes a couple holding hands. Are you comfortable displaying affection in public? yes
 
4) When Bobby recorded this song, he was married to screen sweetheart Sandra Dee. Today she is best known as the inspiration for the song, "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee." Can you name another song from Grease? Hopelessly Devoted, Beauty School Drop Out, Greased Lightning...

5) Bobby loved gadgets. He was enthusiastic about his suitcase telephone, which was one of the first mobile phones. Are you an early adapter, or do you wait for new technology to be around awhile and not so new before you try it? hmmm... I'm kind of an early adapter
 
6) He was a chess fanatic and always kept a magnetic chess board in his briefcase, just in case he found someone who was willing to play him. Are you a good chess player? I do not know how to play chess
 
7) He very much wanted to play Tony in West Side Story, but he didn't the part because the producers didn't think he looked like a romantic leading man. What actor or actress makes your heart skip a beat? George 😍 Clooney
 
8) In 1962, when this song was popular, Jack Nicklaus launched his successful golf career. Do you enjoy playing golf, or watching it on TV? no, but I used to love driving the golf cart for my grandfather

9) Random question: Which would we find in your kitchen right now -- cookies or ice cream? cookies

  1. That's cool that you went golfing (sort of) with your grandfather.

  2. It surprised me that most of us don't even know how to play chess. How nice that you were able to share that time with your grandfather. I'll bet some good conversations took place on the links. How did I know you'd say George Clooney? 😉

  3. Don't you feel like we as teachers HAVE to keep up with technology? The school even has mini sessions that teach aspects of it on PD days. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

    I love that you love George Clooney. When we get together, we can take a walk in the woods together.
    I will be no good at chess because, as my hubby says,” You HAVE to sacrifice your pawns; that’s the whole point of having them!” Have a happy week.

  5. Yes, that was me, trying to comment from the least smart or welcoming platform now operating under the guise of being, "secure". I'm glad that you offer anonymous as an I.D. 🙏
