Saturday 9

(Link in meme-roll)
I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942)
From the archives

1) This week's song was performed by James Cagney in the famous movie of the same name. Do you plan on going to the movies this holiday weekend?
Nope. There's nothing on I want to see. We've hit the midsummer drought of Anything With a Brain.
2) Though known for his larger-than-life screen presence, Cagney was only 5'5". How tall are you?
At my tallest, I was 5'8". I've shrunk some in the intervening decades, at least in height.
3) During the Revolutionary War, General Washington celebrated the 4th of July by giving his troops a double ration of rum. Will you imbibe any spirits this holiday weekend?
This is unlikely. Beast already partook last week, leading up to yet another fall (second this week) and yet another ambo ride to ER where they pronounced him uninjured and drunk. But only kinda drunk, not blotto and blacked out. So yay for that. {that's sarcasm font}
4) American history was one of Crazy Sam's best subjects in school. Science was her worst. In which class did you earn your worst grades?
Gym.
5) The Fourth of July means we're in the middle of summer. Are you careful about applying sunscreen?
In the rare event that I know I'm going to be outside for awhile, I try to remember, but I'm so rarely outside that it's not much of an issue.
6) Mosquito bites can be a major summer annoyance. Are you scratching any itches right now?
Nope. See #4. (although I haven't noticed them being a problem yet around here, so maybe we just haven't hit the hatching period yet)
7) Emergency rooms report an increase in wrist injuries in summer, with people falling off bikes and skateboards and jamming their wrists catching hard-hit softballs. Have you recently been to the ER or Urgent Care?
Oops, jumped the gun in my answer to #3. Yeah, Friday night (technically, Sat. early a.m.). And last month. And sometime in March (?), and.... I practically know all the staff by name.
8) New York is home to Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest every year on the 4th. Will hot dogs be consumed in your household this weekend?
I don't think so. I don't have any in the house that I know of.
9) Atlanta hosts a 10K Peachtree Road Race every 4th of July. Are you a runner?
No. I doubt I could run to the end of our driveway without dropping to the ground. I used to love to run, but that was in a place of low humidity and I was fit.

Wow! You're tall! I really never imagined you tall.

Sorry about all your Beast-ly drama. May the rest of your summer be dull and ER-free.

I am proud to say that as an adult I have not ever run.
