[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. V-27] Chili and Cinnamon Rolls (Part 3 of 3: Too Much BOB; Legacy)

Three weeks ago, I set up for a three-part sequence of posts. In the first post, I discussed hearing on the radio something about chili and cinnamon rolls at school. In the second post, there was the first attempt at the rendezvous, and then the mulligan which succeeded. At the end of that post, I had mentioned that I would save the major legacy for this post.

But now, let’s return to my three-part sequence. In Part 1, I had given the example of “singing any song to a certain tune” by using U Can’t Touch This as an example, from the comedy routine.

In Part 2, I had mentioned songs from the Jewish worship services that are flexible in the melody used. And at the end of the post, I had suggested that I would be writing about unwriting off.

[M.A.P.L.E. IV-4] Roger!

Evidently a few of my M.A.P.L.E. posts this year are based on military and radio terminology this month, as an e-mail that I sent earlier this morning contained the word “Roger.” After taking a look at Wikipedia, I found that I have been frequently misused the word… I suppose that is obvious given that I am not in radio transmission or the military!  Let me explain, and I hate to do this, but I’m going telegram style here!

This is WNAW.
