Hauling out the keyboard to participate in Fun Monday today. :^)
Asks Mama Drama: What funny trivial fact do you remember that you probably should have forgotten a long time ago?
Well, that's a hard choice; there seem to be so many the older I get!
For a long time, I cherished the knowledge that the original name of short-lived Pope John Paul I was Albino Luciani.
But now that you mentioned President Garfield, I'm thinking of my favorite president story. William Henry Harrison, the only Hoosier to be elected President of the United States, caught cold and died after only a month in office, setting the tone for many future flawed Indiana celebrities. And all because he refused to wear an overcoat during his longest-ever inauguration speech. (According to Wikipedia, the real circumstances of his fatal illness were unrelated, but hey, that spoils the story a bit.)
Looking forward to being enriched by what everyone else turns up. Thanks, Mama Drama!
