26 October 2019

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 to answer the questions, however, and here is today's questions!

Saturday 9: Miss Me More (2018)

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

Chosen because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Learn more and spread the word that help is available.

1) This song is about a girl who ditched her high heels so she wouldn't be taller than her beau. Tell us about the most recent addition to your footwear wardrobe. Do you need to go shoe shopping?

I got a pair of Birkenstocks as a gift for Christmas.  They are lightweight, rather than the heavier ones and I tripped on them and split one shoe so it bends under more easily. Eventually I need to buy a new pair.  I hate shoe shopping.  I have all my life.

2) She sings that she misses the sheets on the bed she made herself. As you answer these questions, is your bed made?

I don't sleep in a bed; I sleep on the couch under a blanket, so there is no "making the bed" involved.

3) This video shows her in a ring. Have you ever worn boxing gloves?

No.

4) This week's featured artist, Kelsea Ballerini, got married on Christmas Day in 2017. That makes their anniversary easy to remember. Are you celebrating any birthdays or anniversaries this month?

No but we had several birthdays in September

5) Kelsea has been quoted as saying, "Perfect doesn't exist." She worries that we exhaust ourselves "trying to be something that isn't real." How about you? Do you believe your best is good enough? Or do you strive for perfection?

For me "best is good enough."  Perfection is not possible.

6) One of Kelsea's tattoos is a square inside of a circle, aka a square peg in a round hole, on her left wrist. She says it's there to remind her that it's OK to "not fit the mold of what normal might be." Tell us about a time where you felt like a square peg in a round hole.

Oh lord, most of the time!

7) In 2018, when this song was popular, French President Emmanuel Macron lowered fuel taxes. When it's time to fill your tank, do you shop around for the best price?

No.  It's over $4/gallon here now and most stations charge the same amount, within a cent or two.

8) Also in 2018, Luxembourg made all public transportation free. When is the last time you rode a bus or train?

Not for over 2 years.  When I worked in the book store, and Walt needed the car to go to SF, I would take the bus home, but haven't had to do that in a long time.  It's been years since I rode on the train, which is too bad because I love riding the train.

9) Random question: When did you most recently say, either out loud or to yourself, "I haven't got a thing to wear?"

Actually, as part of the house organization, Marta organized my closet and I actually have more to wear than I realized I had.
