Date: Mon, 29 Nov 1993 23:35:35 EST From: Erick Byrd Subject: "Rock 'n Roll" Hello, Sheila: Regarding your question about your colleague's random expression, "Rock 'n Roll!", I'd like to offer the following: I think what he is indicating is a level of interest or excitement about whatever the immediate topic of conversation is, or else a desire to get started with the project at hand. He is telling everyone around that he is of a positive attitude, and feels good about the topic which has precipitated his remark. Rock 'n roll music is, by nature, a "letting go" of all inhibition, which your classmate is also exhibiting. There's more, but it only serves to underscore or amplify what I think I have already expressed. Sincerely, Erick Byrd
