Can You Hear Me Now?

Train Horns

When Mrs. Scribe was a but a cherub herself, she coveted Rock 'n' Roll. If Dallas' downtown Memorial Auditorium or SMU's Moody Colliseum were hosting an act that had to do with rock, whether famous, infamous or merely up-and-coming, Your Humble Scribe was there. She also hit the clubs on McKinney & Cole Avenues, even though she was underage.

Mrs. Scribe also likes to brag about attending the BEST concert of ALL TIME, or at least the most paradoxical...The Sex Pistols once opened for Merle Haggard at Big D's Lone Star Ballroom. More than a trip-and-a-half, for sure!

As a young Scribe, Ms. S. was once so intrepid that she even garnered a seat on one of the speakers...that would be on the actual stage...of a Doors concert, when Jim Morrison was on his last legs & couldn't even remember the words to "Light My Fire." Needless to say, Your Humble Scribe's eardrums throbbed for a full month...or more...after that!

So, imagine Mrs. Scribe's utter surprise & disbelief when she tested her hearing at this funny little site promoted by Cupcake, of A Truth Universally Acknowledged. She passed! As we used to say, Back in the Day, *WTF!*

Oh, & BTW, Mr. Fairway is still sifting thru entries to yesterday's Silly Sunday Sweepstakes. Mrs. Scribe will announce the winner in a day or 2.

And one more thing: Mrs. Scribe will be forcing her Cherubs to face southwest and recite "Texas, My Texas" this morning, in honor of Texas Independence Day. Well, we declared independence on March 2nd...we didn't really win the War for Independence until April 21st. And that's another holiday entirely!

Editor's Note: The first 4 paragraphs of this dissertation are Mrs. Scribe's first March contribution to the Random Complexity Writing Challenge. 198 Words.

How funny is that. I was at home with the Boy when I started the test. I only heard the initial 'beep' but the Boy said 'what is that noise!?' That was awesome!

Columbia Lily said...

I passed too....although I had to turn the speakers up to the max to do it.

I can here it! Does that make me young at heart? We saluted to the Southwest today, too. And had some chips & guacamole to celebrate! Do you think it was wrong of us to drink Tecate?

The Sex Pistols and Merle Haggard??? Holy cow, that must have been some concert. I actually have two, Elton John 1975 and John Denver, an accoustical performance in 1976. Just John his guitar and a chubby guy playing the chello. So very cool!
