saturday 9: hungry

Saturday 9: Hungry (1966)
… because it’s 4th of July

1) Are you eating anything as you respond to these questions?
no, although i was earlier.

2) Paul Revere and the Raiders performed in Revolutionary garb. Have you ever worked at a job that required you to wear a uniform?
no. well, only as much as “school t-shirt day” on wednesdays, but that’s about it.

3) The “Paul Revere” of Raiders fame was born Paul Revere Dick in Boise, Idaho. What else is Idaho known for?
potatoes!

4) The original Paul Revere was a silversmith by trade, known for making church bells. Can you hear church bells from your home?
no, i can’t.

5) In April, 1775, Paul Revere literally rode into history when he galloped into the night, spreading the word that “the British are coming.” Name another Revolutionary War-era hero.
george washington?

6) Historians tell us that Revere’s famous “midnight ride” actually took place between 9:00 and 10:00 PM. When is your usual bedtime?
about that time. even earlier on workdays.

7) Earlier this year, officials from Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts uncovered a time capsule buried in 1795 by Paul Revere and Gov. Sam Adams. It included coins and newspapers. If you were to bury a time capsule that reflects American life in 2015, what would it include?
well probably a smartphone or something but i’d need it, i wouldn’t want to bury it! haha! maybe pictures of them, as well as pictures of computers and stuff–that’s where we mostly get our news from as well as do our financial transactions on.

8) Will you attend a fireworks display during the 4th of July weekend?
yes, we did.

9) What’s your preferred way to celebrate Independence Day — a parade, a picnic, or both?
my preferred way is to stay indoors in the ac with the animals making sure they’re not spooked by the fireworks.
