Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)

I'm answering these questions on Friday because Saturday morning I am meeting with a bunch of former students for coffee and I won't be home until later in the day after Small Business Saturday shopping.

1) This week's song begins with Hollies' lead singer Allan Clarke telling us of a Saturday night trip downtown, taken at the behest of the FBI. What are your plans for Saturday night? (No, we don't expect you to tell us you'll be working undercover for a government agency.) I will not be working for the FBI or any other government agency--I suspect I'll be knitting Christmas presents

2) At a bar, he meets a woman in a black dress. The LBD, or little black dress, is a wardrobe staple for many women because it's appropriate for almost any occasion. Let's say you get a last-minute invitation for a "dressy" dinner this weekend and you don't have the time or money to buy something new. What's your go-to outfit from your closet? I have black dress pants and a fancy blouse I would wear, maybe with a jacket or cardigan

3) Everyone at the bar starts to run when they hear sirens. Do you often hear sirens in your neighborhood? I do

4) In 1972, the year this week's song was on the charts, Popeye's opened their first fast-food chicken restaurant in Louisiana. Now that the Thanksgiving feast is over, will you be eating any carry-out this weekend? I have so much leftover Thanksgiving food, I will not be eating take out

5) Black is this week's signature color because November 24 was Black Friday, when retailers historically have slashed their prices and the holiday shopping season begins. Have you begun your gift shopping? I started at the beginning of the month--and I'm almost done

6) Walmart, Best Buy and Target all advertise heavily on Black Friday. If you could have a $100 gift card from one of those stores, which would you choose? What would you buy? I would choose... uhm... Target and I would order online because their selection of clothing is better online

7) This Monday is sometimes known as Cyber Monday because shoppers can find big savings online. Do you shop confidently online, or do you worry about security breaches and identity theft? I shop confidently

8) What are you thankful for this year? my health, my family's health, and love

9) Random question: Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone (texting doesn't count)? my dentist's office--I paid my bill over the phone

You say you won't be working for a government agency, but isn't that exactly what a secret agent would say?

I wish I were almost done shopping, but we are getting closer. I need to get some more things for my mom. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend. ♥

#1Sh… I had to get a security clearance so I was investigated by the FBI for a hush, hush job at work. (I passed and got the clearance.)
#6 That is nice to know, the local Target is only a couple of miles away.

I bet you're really a secret agent with DHS or something. I appreciate your choice of dressy outfit.
