Bubble Wrap Might Come in Handy

April Fools Day, April 1St, Joke Day, April FoolsSaturday 9: Everybody's Somebody's Fool (1960)
 Today we are playing a fun meme.

1) Next Wednesday is April Fool's Day. Do you have any pranks planned?
 Do you expect to fall victim to any April Fool's Day mischief?

There is no mischief in the castle at this time. 
I'm all alone. It's a little difficult to prank yourself. 

2) When she was a kid, Crazy Sam would fool her mom by putting bubble wrap under the bath map so there would be a POP! when her mother stepped on it. When you encounter bubble wrap, do you always indulge in a pop or two?

Body Painting, Bw, People, Brush, Designer, PictureThat crazzzzzzzy crazzzy Sam! Great question. 
It might be a good idea to wrap ourselves in bubble wrap right now.

3) While we're using this song to celebrate April Fool's Day, it was written about another subject entirely: heartbreak. The lyrics tell us that at some point, we each get our hearts broken by someone who doesn't love us as much as we love them. Do you think that's true?

No, relationships are more complicated than that. 
But that kind of uneven heartbreak is devastating. 
Board, Heart, Play, Over, Love, Off, End

4) In 1962, this week's featured Connie Francis published a book aimed at teens called For Every Young Heart. It addressed topics like going steady and schoolwork vs. social life. Do you ever read advice columns or self-help books?

We all could use a little help right now. I love to study and learn new things.

5) Connie Francis can play the accordion. Sam has never met anyone adept at this complicated instrument -- not even in her high school band. What about you? Do you play the accordion, or do you know anyone who can?

Yes, Homer and I have the accordion band over every Friday night. 

To Kill a Mockingbird - Wikipedia6) In 1960, when this record was popular, Harper Lee's classic To Kill a Mockingbird was published. Have you read it?
In high school

7) Also in 1960, one of Life magazine's best-selling issues had Sophia Loren on the cover. At that time, she was an international film star and considered one of the world's most beautiful women. Who do you consider one of 2020's most beautiful women?

Who Is Jane Goodall? (Who Was?): Edwards, Roberta, Who HQ, O'Brien ...
Pretty is as pretty does. Jane Goodall is 85 and still changing the world. 

8) A 1960 issue of Vogue acknowledged how expensive it had become to maintain a fashionable wardrobe and asked, "If you were to buy only one thing, what would it be?" If it's good enough for Vogue, it's good enough for Saturday 9: If you could purchase only one new article of clothing for spring 2020, what would you buy?

a pencil skirt 
Dress, Clothing, Dots, Woman, Polka
or a sassy polka dot dress

9) Random question: When someone makes you really angry, are you more likely to respond with stony silence or a big noise?

Stony silence just gives you ulcers.


Thank you Gal for hosting this meme. I needed a diversion.

Oh, that is certainly true about the stony silence. 99% of the time the only one that punishes is you, yourself. The one it's aimed at is clueless. Not that I don't still do it once in a while. I think I have a crush on Homer...hounds are my favorites. :)

It's good to see Homer again!

I like thinking of you twirling around in a sassy polka dot dress as the accordion music swells.

Stay well, my Queen.

A sassy polka dot dress...sounds great

Lori said...

Oh my goodness! I love Homer! I am totally distracted by him. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

CountryDew said...

Now I know why I have ulcers. :-)

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Well done, My Lady...

Mimi Lenox said...

Stacy - Homer will be so thrilled to hear that. For some reason he thinks he owns this blog. He's not the boss of me....

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - I love polka dots but not polka music. Still, I'll give it a twirl... (see what I did there?)

Mimi Lenox said...

songbird - I like sassy sometimes...

Mimi Lenox said...

Lori - Homer likes the lady visitors on this blog. He's such a flirt. He's head is gonna swell now...

Mimi Lenox said...

Country Dew - It's true. Just let it fly.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - Thank you, Prince Budwick.
