Mary Lou at Whidbey Dreamer's Life After Nexcom has this neat little quiz from Quizilla up on her site yesterday and I came out a folkie. Mary Lou came out a square. So what are you?
By the way, I was married in the '60s and had begun raising children. Though I did my part with kids in strollers for the peace movement, volunteered in the inner city and did boycott grapes for many years as part of Caesar Chavez's UFW, I didn't do drugs and didn't hang out in the Haight. The commune life wasn't my thing. I did shake John Kennedy's hand during his campaign, grieved the assassinations of MLK and RFK, and at that point I turned my back on politics. I've never worked a campaign again; I admit I am jaded. Most my friends were folkies in the '60s -- and my hubbie really was a guitar player and singer for the folk masses in our parish.
Thanks, Mary Lou. I like to think of myself as a middle-of-the-roader, but now I'll admit that in my heart of hearts, I always identified as a folkie. In fact, I listen to the Folk station all the time on iTunes. Even if you weren't born yet in the '60s, play along with this quiz and tell me what you are--or have fun with the other fluffy quizzes designed to make you smile at Quizilla.
