So true

An 11-year-old cousin of mine is in town for Memorial Day weekend.  Since his hair has grown into a long, thick swoosh, I asked him whether it reminds anyone of the teen pop star Justin Bieber. 

After a pause he quizzically replied, "What is the purpose of Justin Bieber?"

That is an excellent question. I'm not sure either, but I told him girls need something to scream at.

Good question re Bieber.
Re the screaming:
More than 50 years ago, I attended a girl's birthday party--we were taken to The Temple Theater in downtown Ft. Smith, where we saw (drum roll) "Jailhouse Rock." I was 10 years old, and I was interested in the story (what there was of it) rather than the music. The back of the theater was crowded with Older Girls who screamed constantly. Was I ever annoyed!
Still feel pretty much the same way, but I will say this: at least Elvis was a grown-up.

In my day, the girls all screamed at John, Paul, George & Ringo.......uh, wait a minute, that wasn't my day either.

But, that notwithstanding, I sure am glad Cousin Zeke made your blog!
