Finishing up and wrapping up our American duty this year. Shout out to America is done. Taxes complete. Just need to complete our other detailed information … financial whereabouts, date of last menstrual period, bowel movement regularity, any mood swings and so on. It’s so sweet that they are concerned about the American expat. awww.
Each year we do this and each year I forget the internet details. I answered the security questions, but failed all of them. The first failure was “What is your favorite song?” I panicked. When did I set this up? What was playing at the time. What mood was I in? What was my favorite song???? I don’t remember! I thought it might be the only song I know all the words to. Which, of course, I won’t disclose here. But THAT would be a better security question in my opinion.
I called the dude. I said, “I failed everything.” He laughed. I said, “I didn’t know my favorite song.” He agreed that there are too many to love. I said, “can you help?” He did. and I’m all good. Though, I failed again because I didn’t asked him what HIS favorite song was. I can imagine the possibilities. For me and my gub’ment help today, I’d say his favorite song would be “Word Up” by Cameo. He had that vibe. So, thank you! … Cameo for helping me serve my duty to America. I can now get back to grass-fed beef, raising the kids and feeding people.
Though, I ask you … what was your favorite song last year?
