The Weekend Challenge: inspired by Mae West

Greeting troops!  This Weekend Challenge is inspired by Mae West, an early twentieth century actress, singer, playwright, screenwriter, comedian, and sex symbol.  She was known for her lighthearted, bawdy double entendres and breezy sexual independence.  Mae very famously coined the phrase “Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”

Just choose a number between 1 and 35 and I will give you an awesome Mae West quote that will hopefully inspire you.
