“Peace and love!” I said loudly to my class when the clock struck noon. What can I say, I’m a huge Ringo fan!
“What are you doing?” someone asked.
“Ringo asked all of his fans to say that at noon, so I did. It’s his birthday.”
“You like Ringo Starr?” someone else asked.
“Of course! I have a bunch of his records.”
“Records? Like real records?”
“Yup. Plus I saw him last weekend in Atlantic City.”
Nobody responded. Finally, after a moment of silence longer than the one in before the pledge of allegiance, someone said, “Wow…I’m jealous.” Many people nodded.
I was surprised. I expected to be teased. Nope.
“Did he sing Beatles songs?”
“No No Song?”
“Sadly, no. That was the one I wanted to hear the most.”
I had no idea so many people were fans!
“What was he like?”
“Well, he was quite lively, dancing around, really having fun up there, considering he’s seventy.”
“He’s seventy?!?” a few asked.
“Yup. Today is his 70th.”
A bunch of people start typing on their computers.
“Trust me guys, I’m right. I would know.”
Turns out they were Googling No No Song. Nice.
