23 October 2021

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 are today's questions!

Saturday 9: Bang! (2020)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here

1) This song is about a young man who is living on his own and doing adult things, like getting his own apartment, eating better and doing his own taxes, but he doesn't yet feel grown up. Do you remember when you felt like a grown up?
The first time I was sick, and stayed in bed, with nobody to feel my forehead, take my temperature, smooth my sheets, pin a bag for tissues to the side of the bed or bring me orange juice -- or do anything for me.

2) He mentions not being sure of his login password. Is this something you struggle with? Or are you able to zip into your accounts?
I have so many passwords.  I have them all written down in a coded word perfect file.  Mainly there are only about four, but with different versions -- capital letters, punctuation, etc.

3) Both the video and CD cover show the band playing games of chance. What's the last game that you played?
We played a board game with the grandkids a couple of years ago.  Nothing since.

4) This week's featured band, AJR, is named for the three brothers who make up the trio -- Adam, Jack and Ryan Met. Until recently, all three brothers lived at home and wrote songs together in the Met family living room. Do you have siblings? If so, what's something you enjoy doing together?
I had a sister 4-1/2 years younger than I.  We were never close and she was murdered in 1971, at age 24.

5) The oldest Met brother, Adam, now lives with his girlfriend in an apartment near Columbia University, where he is a PhD candidate. During the school year, he only works on his music on weekends. Next summer, in 2022, he should be done with his studies and plans on touring the country with the band. Some tour dates are already scheduled. If possible, do you like to make plans far in advance? Or do you prefer spontaneity?
It depends on what the event is.  If it's a big vacation trip, I like to make at least some plans in advance, but I also love spontaneity.  COVID kind of robbed us of spontaneity.

6) Jack and Ryan also attend Columbia and share an apartment with their dog. They like to unwind on Fridays, after a week of classes, with a game of air hockey, followed by sushi or sashimi at their favorite Japanese restaurant. What did you do on Friday night?
Same thing I do on all other nights--watch Jeopardy and then whatever else is on that night.

7) In 2020, the year this song was popular, the most streamed TV show was The Office. The show went off the air in 2013, but during the pandemic and quarantine, it found a new audience. What series have you binged on recently?
Defending Jacob on Apple plus.  Great show and I binged the last 3 episodes (of 8) in one night until 1:30 in the morning because I needed to know how it was going to end

8) According to Amazon, the best-selling novel of 2020 was Where the Crawdads Sing. Is there a novel you'd like to recommend to Sat 9ers?
I haven't read many novels in the last couple of years, but "Dear Edward" by Ann Napolitano was very good.  I'm waiting anxiously for Book #9 in the "Outlander" series to be released next month.

9) Random question: Your local drug store has self-check out. You confess to your best friend that you absent-mindedly missed scanning an item, walked out of the store with it, set off security and were caught unintentionally shoplifting. The store manager believed you so there were no repercussions, but you were mortified nevertheless. Would you expect your best friend to share your embarrassing story with his/her spouse?
Well, it depends on the embarrassing story.  This particular story, I wouldn't mind being shared with a spouse.  In fact, I would expect it to be.  But I can think of other stories that I would expect a friend to keep to herself.
