Dear Friends, Family, and Fellow bloggers, You may already know I am one of those people who like to memorize songs and quotes.
It comes in useful in speeches or impromptu discussions. Not to say that I memorize whole speeches like the Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln. (Click here to learn more about Abraham Lincoln)
However, since I mentioned it, I would like to point out that the Gettysburg Address was only 6 1/2 minutes long (only 271 words) so definitely possible to memorize it.
There were two speakers that day (Thursday November 19, 1863) and the other speaker spoke 10 times longer (actually 2 hours) than Honest Abe and the other speaker was quite famous at the time. However, it’s the Gettysburg Address we are aware of and it demonstrates the power of a brief speech. Click here to read more about the Gettysburg Address on Wikipedia
My mind has been remembering a fun Bing Crosby song “Would You Like to Wish On a Star. Full Lyrics click here
The lyrics are fun, and I enjoy the song memorization and singing it. It’s possible I am regressing eh?
All that to say one of the verses from “Wish on a Star” is:
And all the monkeys aren’t in the zoo
everyday you meet quite a few
so you see it’s all up to you,
you can be better than you are…. you could be swinging on a star
As I remembered the last verse (above) I thought about the monkeys we meet daily in our lives and I wondered about yours.
Would you mind commenting on the monkeys in your world? Pretty Please?
Some of the monkeys in my world I meet on the road. They don’t put their turn signals on until the light changes, they swing out left before turning right, they speed through school zones or drive on my bumper as I slow down for parks and schools.
Oy vey – don’t get me started.
I would love to hear about the monkeys in your world, regardless thank you for reading this post and enjoy your day. – David
