Today, I outlived Elvis Presley. The King of Rock and Roll lived 42 years 7 months and 8 days. Today, I’m 42 years 7 months and 9 days old. Since August 16, 1977, the day Elvis died, I’ve thought of this day.
My parents are passionate Presley music fans which made me one too. Elvis Christmas music is our favorite and each year during the holidays, his music is played for nearly a month. There can be no Christmas without Elvis Presley.
Having said this, I was very nervous about my visits to the toilet yesterday. I suppose Elvis represented what all of us could become – a mega-super famous star! So, even though most of us will not – and did not – obtain such fame and fortune, there’s a little psychological funkiness going on with the toilet on a day when one passes through that moment in time (42 years 7 months 8 days).
Alas, I made it. Though two trips to the toilet were made (for #2) yesterday, I sang quietly “If I can dream” and “Burning Love.”
