Hunka Hunka Burnin’ Love

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…

Pennsylvania GetGoes…

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.
