2) In the movie, this song is sung by Bill, the candy store shopkeeper. Think about the last counter person you dealt with. We know that he or she likely didn't break into song, but did you two engage in conversation? Friday was the first day of a neighborhood food/music fest. As I was placing my order at one of the food booths, the band began their soundcheck. It was earsplitting. (And I'm from the "if it's too loud, you're too old" school.) The young man behind the counter told me that he was sure by end of day Saturday, he'll be used to the volume and won't even notice it anymore.
3) The lyrics tell us that The Candy Man can make the world taste good. What's the last thing you ate? Was it delicious, or just OK? At the aforementioned fest, I got barbecue ribs and a side of mac-and-cheese. It was pretty damn good. It was especially satisfying because it smelled so yummy.
4) The most popular recording of this song was by Sammy Davis, Jr. Sammy was in a horrific car accident when he was 29 years old. His cheek and nose were broken and he lost an eye. That he survived at all left him reflective and after his hospitalization, he converted to Judaism. Do you still worship in the faith you were raised in? I was raised a Lutheran. I now worship as a Unitarian. My fundamental Christian belief hasn't changed, I just feel more comfortable observing my faith in a different setting.
6) Because he spent so much of his youth on the road, living on buses, trains and hotel rooms, he loved eventually having his own kitchen and being able to cook his own meals. This weekend, will you spend much time in the kitchen? As little as possible. (Maybe I'll go back to the food/music fest and visit the booth of my favorite pizza place.)
7) Sammy enjoyed experimenting with clothes and jewelry. What about you? Do you consider yourself conservative in dress or are you fashion forward? I'm casual in my work wardrobe and lazy in my dress away from the office.
8) When he died, Sammy was in debt to the IRS. Do you handle your own taxes, or do you use the services of an accountant? I use an accountant.
9) Random question: If you had to tell nothing but the truth (not even the tiniest white lie) for 24 hours, do you think
