Happy Birthday, Elvis!
You’re 79 and looking fine.
The fact that your funeral was held in 1977 is a small matter indeed.
Everybody knows you’re still out there.
In fact, when I was a kid, post ‘77 Elvis sightings were actually reported on the evening news.
I guess the Pre-Boomers of my parents' generation just couldn't imagine a world without The King.
So he showed up —
At Speedy Qs in Michigan…
And Alabama Piggly Wigglies.
Of course, this came in handy for me and my Gen X cohorts.
After all, whenever a 5-pound bag of Snickers…
Baker’s dozen of French Crullers…
Or deep-fried, triple-bacon double cheeseburger went missing —
We knew exactly who to blame.
PROMPT: What if you experienced an Elvis sighting? As a matter of fact, I think he just showed up in your current manuscript!
Trust me, your characters are all shook up.
