Saturday 9: The Flintstones Theme

Link up here if you want. I'm not pushy. ;P

"Meet the Flintstones" (The Flintstones Theme) 
(Recommended by Harriet)

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.
1) The song promises that, "When you're with the Flintstones, you'll have a yabba-dabba-doo time." So clearly Wilma was one accomplished hostess. What about you? Do you enjoy having company?
No. Not usually; I'm a nervous wreck,

2) Since the lyrics say, "Let's ride with the family down the street/courtesy of Fred's two feet," we're assuming the pedal-powered Flintstone car didn't require much gas. Are you loyal to a particular brand of gas? Or do you fill up with whatever is nearby, or least expensive?
The Racetrac down the road is the cheapest, but it doesn't like our debit card for some reason, so we go just a teensy bit farther - in the opposite direction - to hit up the Exxon that charges the same price. Any farther, and we're hitting either the expensive parts of Miami-Dade County or Monroe County, where the Florida Keys are, so I hate it when I need to fill up anywhere but near home!

3) Clearly a sharp-dressed man in stone-age Bedrock wore a long tunic and no pants. What are you wearing right now, as you answer these questions?
Head to toe: An orange kerchief on my head (bad hair day); two pairs of silver hoop earrings; pink nose ring; Victoria's Secret sports bra; VS undies; VS one-piece swimsuit cover-up, which I attempted to wear into the store tonight and was told by Hubs that I can't; a silver-and-pearl bracelet and an açai one; my wedding and engagement rings; and my leopard-print Crocs flip-flops. Obviously, I don't give a lick if I match!

4) Pebbles Flintstone grew up with Dino the Dinosaur and Baby Puss the Saber-Tooth Cat. Did you have any pets as you were growing up?
What's this about petting Baby Puss? Sorry, mind in the gutter... Um. Yes, we had a skinny, scaredy-cat, ugly little Terrapoo (poodle terrier mix) named Leo. The lack of admiration was mutual; he hated kids.

5) Mr. Slate is Fred's blustery boss at quarry, and he frequently threatens to fire Fred. Have you ever had a bad-tempered boss?

Have I! Bob Barton, the Store Manager at the Publix where I worked in college, was fearsome. But he liked me. One time, he prank called me, where I worked in the customer service office, from upstairs in his office. He got me so flustered and upset, as he was pretending to be a very irate customer. I almost lost it with him, and then he started chortling, and I knew it was him. Another time, he took my beeper out of my uniform pocket and sent me on a wild goose chase to find it. Oh, good times, good times.
6) It's estimated that during The Flintstones original run (1960-1966), it was viewed by as many adults as kids. Now that you're a grown up, do you still watch cartoons?
We don't have TV, but when we're staying in a hotel or otherwise traveling, sure. The kids watch some on Netflix and have their DVD collection, too, so I sometimes watch.

7) In 1961, The Flintstones was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award as Outstanding Comedy Series. Do you watch awards shows?
If we're traveling... I watched the season finale of Season XXXVIII of American Idol while we were in Orlando last week. I might have been the only one who did!

8) There are at least two Flintstones-themed amusement parks currently in operation. Do you enjoy scary rides?
Nope! Chloë, my beautiful almost-teen daughter, gets her chicken-shittiness from her mama!

9) Flintstones Vitamins are still on store shelves. Do you take a vitamin each morning?
I take my Royal Jelly (JAFRA) and probiotic vitamins at night. Close enough.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a swell day.
