1 September 2018

Welcome to Saturday 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

She Works Hard for the Money (1983)

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

1) This song is about a woman who works hard as a waitress. What's the hardest job you've ever had?

I never really had a HARD job, but the one that I disliked the most was working for an attorney who routinely chased secretaries around the "liberry" (he never coud say "library") table and after I left the job tried to hire me back for a day to sit in the office, pretend to work while he was in court, and report to him whoever "talked" while he was gone. I am proud of myself for refusing to do so.

2) The lyrics tell us she has worked at this job for 28 years. What's the longest you stayed with one employer?

While working other jobs, I was an at home transcriptionist for a psychiatrist for 30 years.

3) Donna Summer was inspired to write this song during an awards show. She ducked into the bathroom and met the elderly ladies' room attendant, whose job it was to make sure the room the spotless, the complimentary hairspray and moisturizer was abundant, and there was a hot towel for every celebrity who used the facilities. "Wow," Donna thought, "she works hard for those tips." Who is the last person you tipped?

It's been so long since I've been able to go out of the house by myself (still can't drive) that I don't remember, but it would have been whichever food server took care of me at the last restaurant where I ate.


4) Early in her career, Donna was in the touring company of the musical Hair. It played in Munich for so long that she became fluent in German. What's the longest you have ever lived away from home?

I've never really "lived away from home," but I lived in Australia for six weeks once. 
 


5) Sam's dad is naturally outgoing and enjoys striking up conversations with waitresses, librarians, the checker at the supermarket, etc. Sam is always polite but more private. Are you more like father or daughter?

I'm definitely more like Sam.  Walt is like her father.

6) A little more than 10% of the American workforce is self-employed. Have you ever been your own boss?

For the 30 years I worked for the psychiatrist and for the 5 years that I ran a cake baking business out of my house.

7) Labor Day weekend may offer a golden opportunity for napping and sleeping in. Do you snore?

I don't know.  Probably.  I'll probably be doing a lot of napping on Labor day, since I seem to be doing a lot now that I have my new recliner.
 

8) Will you be attending a Labor Day picnic or barbecue

No
 

9) Labor Day traditionally marks the beginning of the fall. Will you be adding any new fall clothes to your wardrobe?

Bwahahaha.  I haven't added any new clothes to my wardrobe in years.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!

Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear -- it wasn't me! --
so if you don't see your comment, it's because it's awaiting approval.  Sorry 'bout that!
