Friday's Feast

Time for another helping of Friday's Feast, served just under the wire, and just for you.

Appetizer: If somebody made a statue of you, in what pose would you like to be?
I'm not sure if it's a matter of in what pose I would like to be, but rather in what pose I would most likely be. The answer would be a close relative to Rodin's The Thinker. However, instead of resting my chin on my fist while deep in thought, I would undoubtedly be holding my head in both hands, keeping whatever shreds of sanity I had left from oozing out my ears.

Salad: What perfume/cologne does your best friend wear?
Alas I must plead extreme ignorance here, but doesn't everybody have a bottle of Channel No. Whateveryoulikebest in their arsenal? I know I do. Not that I ever wear it. But I have it.

Soup: Name something satisfying about your work
(Maybe. Or maybe not)
Honestly, being surrounded by books on music, scores filled with music and CDs, my job is like Christmas day in and day out. If it weren't for those meddling college kids, it would be perfect.

Main Course: What was the last excuse you made, and why did you need to make it?
At a party tonight I declined glass of wine number two. My excuse was that I had to drive. Although it was entirely true, the real reason was if I had another glass of wine, I would have curled up in the corner and started to snore. I was just too sleepy.

Dessert: Complete this sentence: I wonder why _______________

I wonder why we exploit fears
and yet ignore a world of tears.

I wonder why we feel no shame
and yet assign to others blame.

I wonder if no more would die
If others simply wondered why?
