"Would you believe me if I told you the story is too long to be relayed as a question?"



Surely you're a clever fellow; lawyers create huge run-on sentences in their briefs, etc. so, why can't you craft an appropriate question?

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

OK, did you know that in 1982 through '83, I was musical director and pianist for the re-formed Mamas and the Papas? That was with the original members John Phillips and Denny Doherty. John's daughter Mackenzie (from the TV show One Day at a Time) took Michelle's place, and Spanky McFarlane (from Spanky and our Gang) was the new Mama Cass. We toured all over the USA and Canada. John Phillips was still on probation from his drug bust with Keith Richards, so we couldn't travel elsewhere in the world.

Anyway, we were scheduled to perform live on the Good Morning America show at their TV studio in New York City. They put us up in the Plaza Hotel the night before. We had to be in the TV studio at the ungodly hour of 6:30 am. While we were backstage in our dressing rooms, Richard Simmons walked in. He was also scheduled to appear, and wanted to introduce himself. His first shock was the fact that all of us were smoking cigarettes. He had a small hissy fit about that one! We all thought that was quite normal ... it's how we lived back then ... but he did his best to convince us how bad it was for our health.

Then Richard discovered John Phillip's bottle of Scotch ... and he almost had a conniption! I can't tell you how red-faced and excited he became ... he just couldn't fathom the idea that anyone would be hitting hard liquor so early in the morning! Eventually he just ran out of things to say, and stormed out of the room.

Which leads me to my question: Did you like my story of the day I met Richard Simmons?

Did you know that Maya Angelou said: "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."?

Will you ask me if I really care about what Maya Angelou said about anything under the canopy of Heaven, while I simultaneeously advise you to take the opportunity to ban me on another thread for something?

Are you aware that Maya Angelou used to be a pimp and a prostitute?

How was she able to be that and find the time to philosophize?

Bob1Dog, as you said in another thread: why should we care?

Aren't oysters beneficial to a man's virility? Are we allowed to share long anecdotes in this thread? Do you guys mind if I share one, too?

Wasn't it Andrew Carnegie who said: "The first man gets the oyster, the second man gets the shell."?

daffydoug, isn't the café the place to share whatever you have to offer?

Do I detect that this thread is turning into a bit of nastiness?
