Two Questions and One Suggestion…

Would you ask for an onion bagel with strawberry cream cheese on it?

Neither would I.

But one of my co-workers asks for it every time someone goes to the bagel shop.

And I don’t understand that. Onions and fruit don’t seem to be a winning combination. I've been tempted to ask her about it, but that just seemed weird to me.

So, I keep my judgements to myself...well, to you, and myself.


Do you know what the following license plate frame means?

“I’d rather be…live… and alone with Melissa Etheridge.”

What I don’t understand is the “live” part. The opposite would be “dead and alone with Melissa Etheridge” and who would want that?

I also thought that it might mean “live” and in “live and in concert,” but that’s a given. I mean, if you’re with someone, you’re both “live,” right? And if you’re alone, can it be considered “live and in concert”? I’m thinking, no. You’d just be “live”.

This whole thing completely confused me, and I spent the rest of my drive in a daze.


Okay, and now for my suggestion.

If you haven’t already, stop by the 8th International Art Competition slideshow and see the amazing art from LDS members around the globe.

There’s something for everyone!

And maybe next year, I’ll have the chutzpah to submit something.

And maybe you will, too!

I think you should of course enter next year!! You are super talented. Any new MMA that you have done?
I don't get the license plate either. Maybe she has a song or something that it refers to? I have no idea.
Onion and strawberry? Only for crazy people.

"Live...and Alone" is the name of a Melissa Etheridge concert tour. Therefore, the name of the place is a play on words from the name of the concert tour. :)

Thank you, Anonymous!

Mystery solved... ;-)

We could support each other in our submission goals - yours for the International Art Competition and mine for the Texas State Fair. I have no idea what I would enter, but I am totally enamored with the idea of being able to tell the tale of the time I entered my ____ (fill in the blank) in the Texas State Fair.

Strawberry and onion does seem like a rather odd combination. But on the other hand, I've had orange and fresh onions in a salad. And that was good. So perhaps it isn't as odd as you might think.
