This week Melanie is bringing us another squirrelly Share Your World adventure from the mind of Evil Squirrel. Here are the Squirrel’s questions.
What was the very first popular song you ever remember taking a liking to? I’m not talking about children’s songs or old traditional songs, but the kind of songs you’d hear on the radio.
“Round and Round” by Perry Como. These days I sing it to my grandson all the time.
Are you one of those people who get queasy at sight of blood, or could you watch an open heart surgery?
Yes, the sight of blood, other than my own, tends to make me feel queasy. And yet, I was an army medic back in the day.
Who or what do you feel is lurking right behind you, just waiting to ambush you and make your life a living hell?
What is the gaudiest thing you have ever worn?
When I was in the army reserves and had to go to my duty assignment one weekend a month and for two weeks each summer for six years, I had really long hair (yes, I was a hippie, but this was back in the late 60s and early 70s). My girlfriend would put bobby pins in my long hair and then put a short hair wig on my head, as the army didn’t exactly want long-haired hippies to show up for duty. Did I fool anyone? Probably not. Was it gaudy? Well, I’d say less gaudy than ridiculous looking.
Fess up! What was something you did as a child that got you into BIG trouble?
I got caught shoplifting a live chameleon from the pet department in a Woolworth’s store.
What are you looking forward to as the festive season approaches?
I’m looking forward for the “festive season” to be over.
