Out of Place – Friday5 for October 14, 2011

This reminds me of one of my favorite Harry Connick, Jr. songs, Honest Now (Safety’s Just Danger Out of Place)

Honestly now…
Either you stand for something
Or you get knocked down for nothing
Sister don’t ache too soon
I thought it was understood
By everyone in this room
Who’d ever come up short or won a race
Safety’s just danger
…Out of place

Truly now…
People play tricks on your mind
Shadows only follow behind
Sister stay still
I thought it was the nature
Of all on Malvern’s Hill
Who’d taken a lead off third base
Safety’s just danger
…Out of place

Honestly now…
If fate were to follow fortune
And clarity drowned distortion
Sister on alert
Pay close attention
To fingerprints in the dirt
And fallen feet that leave no trace
Safety’s just danger
…Out of place

Sincerely now…
I requested information
At a roadside station
Sister it seems absurd
To be hammering pith
LIke a poet with a loss for words
Trying to describe an angel’s face
Safety’s just danger
…Out of place

Honestly now…
Wholly in demand
Coming off second hand
Sister don’t unravel
When there’s nowhere to go
Except lawless travel
And an end to infinity’s space
Safety’s just danger
…Out of place

1.     What non-food items are in your refrigerator or freezer?

        My husband had a Redskins frosty mug in the freezer until it broke, and we also have several ice packs. In the refrigerator, we have a couple of expired vials of invitro medication.

2.     What non-book items are on your bookshelves?

         Mugs, figurines, and photographs, together with a couple of teddy bears.

3.     What song or album in your collection doesn’t fit with your usual tastes?

         “We Ready” by Eversole. It was a download for my husband to use on a football highlight video. Trust me, I don’t even  consider that music.

4.     What item in your wardrobe doesn’t really match anything else?

          Fortunately, everyone who gives me clothes has great taste, so there’ s nothing glaringly mismatched or out of tune with the rest of my wardrobe.

5.     What scar on your body did you receive in the unlikeliest of ways?

        I have a scar on my elbow from cooking. I took steaks out of the oven and set the tray on a hotpad by the sink so I could finish cooking. I forgot it was there and knicked it with my elbow. I also have a scar on my bicep from a similar incident of bending over to take a bread tray out of the oven.
