Oh, Hanna. You're a Paul girl too. I guess we really shouldn't devolve into a discussion of polygamy with fabforumemily, mccartneyalarm, and AppleScruffJunior. Well, but, you know Paul has enough energy to spread around. Seriously though, I did like your point about him having good manners.

acmac I like your thinking : "Paul is so determinedly UP is that he knows how low he can sink if he lets himself."

Are there any of his songs that he wishes he could erase like they never happened?

I'll slip in a "John" question: Does Paul feel like he should have done more, found the right words to say, to help his very good friend cope with his demons better? Many of you have done a lot more reading about the Beatles than I have. So if he has talked about this before, please enlighten me.

The range of resilience found among humans amazes me. Some people can endure so much and be cheerful while others who endure the same trials and hardships crash and burn. Nature and nurture.

Paul did say that he and John got drunk once and had a little cry about their Mums. He even sings about it in his tribute song to John, Here Today ("what about the night we cried. Because there wasn't any reason left to keep it all inside") I think John drew some comfort from Paul just knowing he had gone through the loss of a parent too and understood how he felt. He didn't have to pretend with Paul.

Can I get a loan of few million, please?

Thought about that one, but I'd never be able to repay. My financial savvy isn't what his is. He is a good business man.

Will you go back to smoking weed when Beatrice turns 18?

HA!  That is a great question!! a-hard-days-night-paul-11

 

Someone, I think on this forum, mentioned that giving up pot may have been part of the divorce/joint-custody settlement with HM. He might get drug tested to see if he is in compliance.

Now I am tempted to send Nancy a fur coat AND a cheeseburger just to hurry along the divorce! I am still salivating over the boxers or briefs question....I bet he wears boxers. (At least it is not Depends!) Do you all think he doesn't smoke pot now cuz of Beatrice? I guess I just assumed he did...at least when he doesn't have her around.I would ask him what his favorite cocktail is (so I could ply him with it). Do you think he drinks liquor, beer, or wine? Finally, I'd ask him the most important question, "do you mind if I kiss you?"

Ack! Must get the picture of Paul in Depends out of my head. ACK! ACK! ACK!

BTW, I won't stop you from sending the burger and coat. I'll throw in $100 to make it happen.

I think he drinks all 3. He's a well-rounded person you know. If he gets wasted enough, you wouldn't have to ask him...I think his very robust libido would take over and get him to do things Nancy would regret.

"Stupid question, but I'd want to know how does it feel to be Paul McCartney? Does he wake up every day thinking about how fabulous he is, or does he still feel like a regular man? "

In some interview long ago, I think back in the early 80s, he said something like (to paraphrase):  "You know, I'm just a normal bloke like anyone else -- the only strange thing about me is that I'm 'Paul McCartney'..."

I just can't imagine (or don't want to imagine) that he wakes up real smug every morning and the first thing he says is "Hey, Look At Me world, I'm Paul McCartney, a Beatles god". I think he probably says something like, "Hey, man, where's my toothbrush?" The reasons I think about this: "Smile Away", the interview he did with the Daily Mail about being in the Japanese prison (he mentions getting to clean his teeth twice), and this picture:
