Saturday 9

Saturday 9: I Started a Joke

1. Tell us a joke that you think is funny. If you don't tell jokes tell us why. I've heard many versions of this and I love them all: A grandmother takes her beloved grandson to the beach. As he plays in the sand, a sudden tidal wave sweeps him away into the depths of the ocean. The grandmother immediately falls to her knees in the sand and prays to God for the return of her grandson. "Please God, I have always been a good person and a loving Grandmother, please return my grandson to me." Just as she finishes her prayer, a huge wave crashes back on the beach, returning the young boy to his grandmother's side. Grandma begins to cry and hug her grandson that she thought she would never see again. She is overcome with joy and gratitude. She looks once more at her grandson, then looks back at the sky and yells, "He had a hat!"

2. Where do you buy most of your clothes? Macy’s.

3. Which famous person would you like to meet? Why? Cubs’ skipper Lou Pinella. If you have to ask why, you don’t visit this blog very often.

4. What is your ultimate ambition? Serenity.

5. Do you like to live in the area of your country or would you prefer something a little different? I love living here.

6. Has a newspaper or television reporter ever interviewed you? If so, what were the circum
stances and what did you think when you read or saw what you said? I have refused to be interviewed for both the Chicago Tribune and the Weather Channel, so I have no regrets about what aired or was printed.

7. What was the last CD/mp3 album that you purchased? How did you like it? "Love Is the Answer" by La Streisand. It's great.

8. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you. "My Tears Dry on Their Own," by Amy Winehouse. "My Brave Face," by Paul McCartney. "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most," by Barbra Streisand. "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay. "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen.

9. Do you are your partner usual begin intimacy? I don’t have partner.


  1. Cute joke :) Have a great Saturday!

  2. Good choice- go Cubbies!

    Have a great Saturday!

  3. Asking you why on the Lou question = asking me who Cookie is and why I love him so. Good thing I'm a regular reader and just knew!

    That's a cute joke - so like a mom, eh?

    I suppose I should update Snarkypants. Not like I'll be doing anything constructive outside in the Snowpocalypse! hehe

  4. I almost included "Viva la Vida" myself. Great tune! Happy Saturday...

  5. That's a joke I can tell tomorrow at the birthday. Thanks.

    Have a great weekend.
