1) What's something that seems to fascinate everyone else, but you just don't care about?

George Clooney is in the country.
People are all oh and ah's.
I don't know the guy. Maybe he's nice, maybe he isn't.
I'm not part of his world and it's best he stays out of mine, I think.

2) The lyrics refer to "the times we cried and laughed." Which did you do more recently, cry or laugh?

I was so happy the working week was over.

3) In the song, our hero seems surprised that his girlfriend doesn't believe him. Are you more believing and trusting, or suspicious and skeptical?

I'm more believing and trusting, and I'm often paying for it.

4) This song is just over two minutes long, which seems short for a song but awful long when Sam is waiting for her chicken soup to heat in the microwave. What's the last thing you heated in a microwave?

Oops...A meal.

5) This week's band, The Buckinghams, was one of the first acts to perform at Chicago's premiere summer festival, The Taste of Chicago.* Let's think ahead: Have you made any plans for Summer 2016?

No. not yet. Maybe I should.

6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone magazine published its first issue. What magazines do you subscribe to? Do they arrive in the mail, or do you read them online?

I get some professional magazines in the mail.

7) Country star/American Idol judge Keith Urban was born in 1967. Are you watching the final season of American Idol?

No, we can't see it here.

8) In 1967, the average cost of a movie ticket was $1.25. By 2015, it had risen $8.60. What's the last movie you saw in a theater?

Star wars. Took a nephew to see it because his parents didn't want to. We pay a lot more for a movie. It was 12 euro, that's about 13 dollars.

9) Random question: Sam's taking everyone out to dinner and she's buying. Would you prefer the steak or the lobster?

Never had lobster. Maybe I'll try.

  1. I bet your nephew appreciated you taking him to the movie.

  2. Lobster is a nice treat--but it can be messy!

  3. I really enjoyed going to see Star Wars.

  4. Hm. We paid $13.50 here in Virginia (US) to see the movie at a matinee . . . the nighttime tickets were $20.00. We only go to the movies about once a year because they are expensive.
