For those of you with fond memories of the telephone talk shows, another issue to revisit is reincarnation. Among the thousands of calls I took we had males wanting to come back as females and a few females who would like to return as a male. Why?
It was today (April 1st) in 1984 that Marvin Gaye was shot dead by his Father at their home in Los Angeles. He was just one day away from his 45th birthday.
Marvin told me he would like to come back as a giant Redwood Tree and from up on high enjoy the peace and quiet of looking down on us as we wander by. With that thought in mind you had better watch what you do under any big tree.
My choice would be an exploding train seat activated when a passenger put their feet on me. Covered in luminous bright yellow dye everyone would know anti social miscreants feet had met the train seat that fought back.
I would not fancy returning as a wildebeest as they appear to be Breakfast, Dinner and Lunch for lions and crocodiles. Life as a vole or other small mammal is not to be recommended in owl territory and life as a truffle sounds stressful with hunters determined to make sure I appear on a dinner plate as soon as possible.
Do you have a choice other than spending your life as Bobby Womack’s guitar? Would that guitar have some stories to tell?
