    1. Its funny because it started with the Descartes quote "I think therefore I am" which is the mantra for existentialism and ground zero for speaking in the first person ... then I just rambled off those lines very effortlessly - the whole thing was done in 90 seconds. The whole thing has just been FUN! I'm having a trifexellent time!

      His birthday was a total fluke!

    2. Sometimes the stars just align. Enjoy it!

  8. Let me guess......this isn't the first time you and Sam-I-Am have been one and the same? Lol. It amazes me how "heavy" some responses to the prompt become and how light and breezy yours seems to be. Very well done. Rock on, you Swami of Seuss!

  10. You captured his style, oh, so very well, I'd have to say, your piece is just swell. Sorry, couldn't resist my lame effort to pay tribute to the Master and to you for your excellent piece.

  12. My son is Sam. He loves that book. He hates hates hates green eggs and ham. But if you tell him the ham is "Aunt Holly's special lunchmeat" and serve him barbecue sauce, he'll devour it. Eggs, however, are harder to conceal.
