Saturday 9: Single Ladies

Saturday 9: Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) (2008)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Are the majority of your friends married or single?

A. Married. Most of the single people I know are widowed. It's what happens when you get older.

2) Rings are one of the items most frequently pawned. Have you ever visited a pawn shop, either to sell or to buy?

A. I've gone in them to look, but not to sell or buy. I watch Pawn Stars sometimes on TV. Does that count for anything?

3) Let's say we want to put a ring on it: What's your ring size?

A. I have no idea. I haven't bought a ring in years.

4) Beyonce does commercials for Pepsi. What's the last beverage you drank?

A. A&W root beer.

5) Beyonce also has a clothing line. What are you wearing right now?

A. Um. A Disney nightie and my robe.

6) Speaking of clothes, Sam was changing hers this morning when she unintentionally flashed her neighbor. She didn't realize he was working along the fence that runs under her bedroom window. Tell us one of your most embarrassing moments.

A. In September 2013, the cows were loose. We had taken a Sunday drive and were an hour away when the neighbors called. By the time we arrived, it was a circus, with a crowd of people standing around and police vehicles on the scene. Only one person, however, was trying to put the cows back in the lot. So my husband and I went down to work on that. I was dressed in good clothes and good shoes. One of the cows turned toward me, and I headed in her direction shrieking "ya ya" with my arms flailing to try to get her to go back toward the gate, and I slipped and fell down. The cow almost ran me over. It was kind of dangerous but I was very embarrassed because I fell. I am always embarrassed when I fall down.

7)  Rumor has it Beyonce is pregnant again. Coincidentally, Sam needs to check the Babys R Us registry for a shower present. Who will receive the next gift you give?

A. I suppose my husband, on our anniversary in November. Or maybe a friend whose birthday is a bit sooner.

8) But Sam doesn't actually want to go to the shower and is trying to come up a good excuse. Tell us a time you fibbed to get out of doing something.

A. Nothing comes to mind at the moment.

9) When did you last go inside the bank and talk to a teller?

A. Just this week. I made a deposit and I asked about the change-over that is happening soon, since our bank has been sold.


  1. I have fun with Saturday9, and enjoyed your answers!! I get embarrassed when I fall, too, but it also usually makes me laugh hysterically. For some reason, slap-stick falls get me giggling, then laughing and crying. Had I seen you fall, I would have run to help and make sure you were okay, but I would have been giggling. I have a very weird funny bone.

  2. I haven't had an A&W rootbeer in such a long time--but it's always been my favorite!

  3. oh my gosh, I probably would giggle too - as I was helping you up. And I got a free A&W yesterday - they have a new 10 calorie root beer I guess. At least I think it was A&W. :)

  4. oooh i miss a&w root beer. haven't had that in a long time. yum.

    mine was a falling thing, too. you're right; i am always embarrassed when i fall--it's not often, thank goodness, but it's often done spectacularly, with lots of witnesses. :/

  5. Holy Cow...s on the loose. We have cows around here and I always wonder what I would do if one showed up in my yard. Baby cows are too cute.

  6. Falling is something that few human beings can stand to do, so we can all relate to that. I'm glad the cow didn't hurt you permanently! I love Root Beer. Have one for me, too, please. I've always wanted a Guernsey or Jersey cow but not now. They used to be so little.

  7. I jealous... A&W Root Beer! They used to carry that brand in the stores in CT but I haven't seen it lately.

  8. 1 - In our group it's an equal mix.
    2 - No pawn shops
    3 - I never wear rings, so no idea
    4 - 7-Up (it's the only soda I drink, and only if I have an upset stomach)
    5 - Pants, turtleneck, shoes, scarf
    7 - Next gift -- a friend
    8 - Back in HS I said I was sick once in order to go to Great America with friends.
    9 - Friday, when I made a deposit

  9. I get embarrassed when I fall, too. I think it's human nature. I can't believe only 1 of the crowd was trying to help corral the cows!! :(


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
