The Sunday Stealing involves three things, like the Trinity or the number of angles in a triangle, a numeric value greater than two but less than four. There are Three Bears, Three Little Pigs, and Three Dog Night, whose drummer, Floyd Sneed, died in January 2023.
Three names you go by other than your given name:
Some people say Rog, which is fine. I had a coworker who called me Raji, which sounded too much like the diminutive Rogey for my tastes.
My father sometimes used o call me Sport, which was neither here nor there.
The name I’m most often called incorrectly is George. It happened three days ago. I explained this phenomenon here.
Three things you like about yourself:
My passion for music; My analytical mind; My compulsion to post on this here blog daily.
