Mood Interrogative

Did you know that there is a Pulitzer Prize for music? Do you have music in your head that you can’t get rid of, say like “Stayin Alive” or “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”? Did you know that polka dot is sometimes polkadot? Do you care? Do you think it unfitting if a lady of a certain age wears polka dots? Do you know who Lawrence Welk is? Have you ever been drunk on beer and danced the Beer Barrel Polka? Do you know what it means to shoot fish in a barrel? Has a fertility doctor ever told you that you have “slow swimmers”?

Do you wonder about men who can never find what they’re looking for in the refrigerator? Is your fridge organized according to food groups? Are your books alphabetical by title? By author? Neither? Do you know anyone who is now OCDC? ACDC? Acidic? Do you use the word “toxic” to refer to people rather than chemicals like hemlock or belladonna? Have you ever seriously thought about murdering someone? Did you ever watch Perry Mason after he became wheelchair bound? Would you make a good detective? Would you lie under oath to protect a loved one? Are you a good liar? Do you believe in lying by omission? Do you believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows? Are you still growing?

Just wonderin…

    Your beautiful Tonya is still beautiful, Cheryl. And your honest tribute to her in your blog is so heartfelt, this year because her absence also defines you and your longing and helplessness…this year. Landie
