Let me ask you

My friends and I came up with a way to vet out potential suitors.  We would sit them down, have a few drinks, and ask them a series of questions. These are not your usual series of "where do you see yourself in 5 years" as those answers didn't give us an accurate reflection of the person as a whole. So here for you is one of our questions and my own answer.

The Ordeal: Question Number 8
The scene, an empty stage. The spotlight shines on you and you cannot see the audience. You are wearing a red sequined dress standing before a microphone. What song do you sing?

Given where my life has been lately, I'm thinking a female power ballad is in order. Although originally sung about a bad romantic breakup, the song "I will survive" seems the most appropriate. I can actually picture myself standing center stage and belting out the words. The power of singing out the words in our heart is something I have talked about recently. The music can reach inside and give us strength. That's why we ask this question. Some people take a comic route while others try to do something impressive. All the choices speak to who a person is and how they view the world.

Me, well, I'm a survivor of course.

I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive

  1. I love the question, and the idea of the whole list of questions. Please post some more of them, if you're willing to share.

    My answer is "Mystery" by the Indigo Girls. I'm not sure why. I adore this song, and it does remind me of a former lover of mine. And the whole idea of the Mystery is fascinating.
