5 points to the first person to correctly identify the group who originally performed it…(Hint - the titles are the same)
Moving on…as I’m working (not physically) my way out of my usual “Monday morning, headaches, I have to admit that I did too much on Sunday and church was very good but loud.” So it’s a “feed the soul and hurt the brain for a bit or not?” headaches.
There used to be a radio station I listened to that the morning DJs did a trivia game called, “Fun Facts to Know and Yell.” And listeners would call in and share trivia and the DJs thought it was really a good one, they would win a useless toy and the ability to “YeLL” their fun fact live on the radio.
And then I sat down at my desk.
I had to move my chair over about 3 inches.
And I have to do it multiple times a day.
- Because I live in an a house that was built before Teddy Roosevelt became president.
- and before there were cars.
- and some of the supporting beams in the basement are still as round as they were when they were vertical and still growing.
When we bought the house, the inspector brought a marble along. He set the marble down on the floor and let go very carefully. Little by little, it gained speed and did almost an entire “lap” (think U shaped) between the living room and dining room.
Now imagine having an AVM and brain surgery and the associated balance issues and trying to navigate the house with uneven floors.
And there’s your fun fact - “TJ lives in an old house that makes him stumble like he’s drunk!”
So according to my calculations, I only mentioned AVM once. Then why did I post it?
Because we all need to smile every now and then.
And it would put a smile on my face if this lttle story put a smile on someone else, someone else who marches on with us.
Speaking of marching on, take a listen to this -
P.S. May we all live with the knowledge that the speed at which we walk and the direction we walk (as long as it isn’t illegal) is all about us and the fact that we are walking is a victory in itself.
Richard - I’d love to hear how well I did with the spell check issue. Seriously. I would.
