Answer The Phone

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.

1) This song likens a relationship to a roller coaster ride. When did you most recently visit an amusement park? I was at Hershey Park in 2013--I don't recall a more recent amusement park

2) Lead singer Mark McGrath reasons that his girl should answer the phone because he knows she's home. That was decades ago, when most homes still had landlines. Where were you when you took your last call? Were you at home? I was at school and it was the middle of a class--because it was my doctor's office I took the call

3) He remembers the glow of her face when he gave her a rose. Have you recently given or received a gift of flowers or a plant? last weekend I gave my neighbor a bouquet of sunflowers

4) Sugar Ray's debut CD was called Lemonade and Brownies. Crazy Sam admits she'd prefer milk with her brownie. What about you? Does the combination of lemonade and brownies sound good to you? I would prefer iced coffee with a brownie

5) In 2005, Mark McGrath was a guest judge on American Idol. At one time, Idol was the dominant singing competition show. Today, in addition to American Idol, viewers can also watch The Voice and America's Got Talent. Are you a fan of any or all of these shows? I was a faithful fan of Idol until Simon left

6) Sugar Ray is a famous name in boxing circles. Sugar Ray Robinson and  Sugar Ray Leonard were both world championships. Are you a boxing fan? no, although I appreciate the sportsmanship

7) In 2001, when this song was popular, the Leaning Tower of Pisa reopened to the public after more than a decade of renovations. Have you ever been to Italy? If yes, where did you go? If not, is a trip to Italy on your wish list? Italy is definitely on my wish list.  My planned trip to Italy to visit my sister (her husband was stationed at Aviano Air Force Base) was foiled by pulmonary emboli

8) Also in 2001, Liverpool's Speke Airport was renamed John Lennon Airport. Liverpool's is the first airport in the United Kingdom to be named after an individual. Tell us about something in your hometown that is named after someone. My favorite place is the Turner Memorial Library!

9) Random Question: Is the screen on your cell phone cracked?

I hope you get to Italy someday. Do you have heart problems that would keep you from going? I can't sit for long hours, so a long flight would not be in my best interest.

Sorry you didn't get to Italy. I think more Americans need to travel and see the world.

Hershey Park is about 5 hours from me. I've only been there once back in 1981. I've been past it since then, but never inside again. I remember it being a lot of fun. I was the same about Idol after Simon, but the new panel is really good and got me watching it again.

Simon leaving the Idol is why one now watches America's Got Talent!

#1 There is a Hershey Park in the next town, they bought up the old amusement park Lake Compounce which open in 1846, it is the oldest continuously operating amusement park in the United States.
#7 I hope that it wasn’t you who had the pulmonary emboli.

I was relieved when Simon left. He was so mean, and my heart just broke for the contestants, especially during auditions. I know, I know ... they signed up for it and knew the job was dangerous when they took it.
