A Story about Team Rose Buds 3-Day Walk

This story was created by using lyrics from songs about walking.

On the final day of 3-day walk Dave says “[I] will “walk like a man, talk like a man” and says to ladies “Hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side.” Jessica replies, “[No worries Dave]. These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you [breast cancer].” Jennifer’s sensitivity is apparent when she states, “If you see me ‘walking down the street, And I start to cry each time we meet. Walk on by, walk on by.’” Michele puts her arm around Jennifer and says, “Because you're mine, I walk the line.” Granny Rose adds her encouragement by stating  “Walk on through the wind, Walk on through the rain, Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown. Walk on, walk on With hope in your heart And you'll never walk alone, You'll never walk alone.”  Granny Rose then escorts them down the sidewalk in grand style blowing them kissing and stating, “Rose Buds, walk this way, walk this way, walk this way, walk this way, just gimme a kiss, like this!”.

A couple hours later At the next cheer station several miles, Ken sees them coming and says to Jessica and Jennifer, “Walk right in, sit right down [next to] Daddy, let your mind roll on.” Jennifer and Jessica quickly remind Ken, “I'm walkin. Yes indeed, I'm talkin'.By you and me, I'm hopin'. That you'll come back to me [at the closing ceremony].” Thane interrupts to alert Rose Buds of the action, “All the cops in the donut shop say ‘Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh ! Walk like an Egyptian. Walk like an Egyptian.” As Team Rose Buds walks away Derek thinking of his beautiful wife Jessica says to Granny Rose, “[It’s like she is] ‘walking on sunshine and don't it feel good!!’”

Rose Buds continue on their journey to finish walking 60 miles over 3 days. As Granny Rose sees them walking closer to the finish line, “Here they come walking down the street. Singing save the boobies! Please Oh Please. Snapping their fingers and shuffling their feet. Singing save the boobies. Please Oh Please! They look good. They look fine. And what they do blows my mind.” As they cross the finish line with tears streaming down their cheeks Michele says to mom, “But I would walk 500 miles.” Jessica and Jennifer state, “ And I [we] would walk 500 more.” Dave says, “Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles [more for you even if it causes me ] to fall down at your door]!”
