Betsy Ross Got It All Sewed Up


Let's say, hypothetically, that you are visiting Philadelphia and you decide to go see Betsy Ross's house.

And then for the rest of the day the theme song from Maude runs through your head.

Does that indicate something is wrong with you?

Just hypothetically.

It means you watched too much TV in the 70s. Try listening to that Mickey song, it will get Maude out of there, worth a try but gives you a new problem. In any case, don't do any cocaine cuz then it will never leave until the cocaine wears off, which is usually in another 38 hours.

I do a wicked good Maude impression AND I'm from Philly. I will be in your dreams tonight Walter, and strangle you with a scarf. :-)

I've always been a little afraid that I will grow up to be Bea Arthur.

Nothing wrong at all. Were you also thinking of Joan of Arc and Lady Godiva?

The opposite, doll: It's a barometer of your uber-coolness.

I think you should just stop at the fact that you know the Theme from Maude for it to run around in your head in the first place.

"Does that indicate something is wrong with you? Just hypothetically."

As a fellow child of the 70's, I say absolutely not. Norman Lear, owns a part of my brain where the themes from "Good Times," "All In The Family," "Maude," and "The Jeffersons" run on a perpetual loop.

It's when you fantasize about Bea Arthur in any capacity, that is when it's time for the industrial strength Prozac and the rubber room.

When I was a little girl, I would sing the song "Bosom Buddies" from the musical "Mame," and I would always sing the Bea Arthur part.

Even at 8, I had a very deep voice.

Replace it with the theme from "Alice."

Only if you start wearing knee-length vests.

What you need to contemplate is why Betsy Ross reminds you of Maude. Exactly what was the psychological trigger?
