Friday’s Feast One Hundred and Fourteen

October 6, 2006


Feed your mind
with thought-provoking,
mind-stimulating questions…

visit Friday’s Feast:

a buffet for your brain.

Appetizer
Name a song you know by heart.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are gray.
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away!

My mom sang it to me, and I to my daughter.

Soup
What will you absolutely not do in front of another person?

Stick my finger in my nose. See? I can’t even say it.

Salad
How often do you use mouthwash and what kind do you like?

I kind of like the new citrus flavored Listerine, but only when I have a sore throat.

Main Course
Finish this sentence: I am embarrassed when…

I am terribly embarrassed when someone recognizes me from back in the day and, for that minute that seems like an eternity, I cannot connect. This always amazes me because my appearance has changed dramatically. How do they know? Last week I attended a meeting in a neighboring school corporation. One of my counterparts took me by the hand to meet her secretary, who she said recognized me from high school. Mind you, this was 33+ years ago. Once again my fear materialized right in front of my eyes. It reminds me of a scene from “Hook”, the Peter Pan remake. The little boy is looking deep into an adult Peter Pan’s eyes, while holding his face closely, his hands on Pan’s cheeks. He is searching for the Pan he remembers from years before. Everyone is quiet. He cocks his head, squints his eyes, and exclaims, “Oh, there you are Peter!” That’s what I am looking for, but cannot seem to find fast enough. How embarrassing.

Dessert
What was the last food you craved?

That’s easy. Red beans and rice.

    You Are My Sunshine is a important song in my family too. I remember my mom singing the song, and our son, Matt, had a stuffed lion that played the sunshine song. Many times You Are My Sunshine calmed our colicky baby.

  6. Danella Says:

    Ooooo I love red beans and rice! Great feast!

    Mines up too.

  7. Jane Says:

    Great main course….it really bothers me when come up to me and starts telling things they remember from ‘our’ past and I have NO clue who they are. Just introduce yourself even if you think I should remember you!!!
    Come and share my feast.

  8. Jay Says:

  11. Rob Says:

    Mmmm. Red beans and rice. Have you ever been to Brazil?

  12. Freakazojd Says:

    Mmmm, red beans and rice!! Much healthier than what I would have chosen (chocolate, natch).
    Great list, and Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving! 🙂

  13. Betty Says:

    It’s embarrassing to me when someone says, “You don’t remember me, do you?” because I feel I should have known the person. Makes me feel bad all day. There must be a more tactful way to say that.

  14. KaY Says:

    Loved the appetizer. Me thinks of singing that song to my son now.

    Come dine with me.

  15. willi Says:

    Your ARE my sunshine. No really! and it’s a good song too.

  16. Cazzie!!! Says:

    I just love that cute pic!!!

    Song I know by heart, Honky Tonk Woman, the rolling stones.

    Soup, I would not eat a raw onion in front of anyone else, can’t think ofanything more original, sorry.

    Salad, everyday, and I floss, listerine is my brand too.

    Main course: I am embarrased when my kids w\show that they can act older than I realy am!

    Desert: See my latest blog entry 🙂
