Happy 11th anniversary of Saturday 9! -- This is a weird Saturday 9.  I think most of my answers are "no" !!

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!

Live Like You Were Dying (2003)

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

1) This song is about a man whose father advises him to live life to the fullest, to become "the friend you'd like to have." How about you? Are you the friend you'd like to have?

I don't know.  I like me, but I'm kind of boring.

2) The song lists several "bucket list" items: skydiving, mountain climbing, riding a bull. Have you done any of those things? Would you like to?

No and no!

3) In the music video, Tim McGraw is wearing a white button-down shirt, blue jeans and a cowboy hat. Which of those items is in your wardrobe?

No, no, and no.

4) He wears a cowboy hat because he is embarrassed by the size of his forehead. When you wear a hat, are you more likely doing it for style, like Tim, or for protection from the elements?

I rarely wear hats because my head is so big that any "one size fits all" hat doesn't fit me, so I just am not used to wearing hats.  That said, I DO have one baseball type hat that fits and I wear it occasionally, but only for protection from the elements.

5) McGraw's biological father was Tug McGraw, pitcher for the Mets and Phillies. How did your baseball team do this season?

I'm a Giants fan, but I don't have a clue how they did.  I only know they didn't make it into the World Series.

6) Tim McGraw and wife Faith Hill live just outside of Nashville. They enjoy inviting friends over to sit around a bonfire, drinking beer and playing guitars. Tell us about the most recent gettogether you had with friends.

This past week, I had lunch with three women I used to work with ~20 years ago.  One of them and I reconnected last year and have had coffee together a couple of times, but I hadn't seen the other two in 20 years so it was nice to get caught up.  We hope to do it again, sooner than 20 years.

7) Tim likes his tattoos. He admits his silliest one -- a leprechaun wearing a cowboy hat -- was acquired during a night of drinking. Do you have a tattoo? If so, are you glad you have it and would you get it again?

I do not like tattoos, and do not have one.

8) In 2003, when this song was popular, the supersonic Concord took its last flight. When did you most recently board a plane? What was your destination?

I THINK the last time I was on a plane was flying home to San Francisco from Venice in 2015.  We might have flown to Boston since then, but I don't remember.

9) Random question: When did you last walk around the house naked?

I was probably a toddler!
