As I’m racing around the continental United States, making my way back east, I’ve found myself at an Interstate rest stop, somewhere in the Midwest. Amy, a fellow member of the Absolute Write online community has challenged me to divulge five things about myself that few people know.
Anyone who’s read a single entry here knows I love to read and pretend I’ve traveled around the world. If you’ve read my bio under “Fellow Traveler,” you’ll know that I’m a Web developer by day, and I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. But here are some things you may not know (unless you’re a friend of mine, and you’ve heard these stories one too many times):
1. I wasn’t stoned when I watched The Wizard of Oz on mute with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon as the soundtrack. Nonetheless, I thought it was freaky and awesome as hell. If you’ve done it, you know what I’m talking about.
2. My last boyfriend before I met the man of my dreams was homeless for a time, living in a tent with a cocker spaniel named after Sammy Hagar. Then he got himself a sugar daddy, and we all breathed a little easier for a while.
3. I have career limiting tendencies. I’m thinking a sex change operation and affiliation with a Protestant church might help. But probably not.
4. I got my B.A. in B.S.
5. I’ve never had an experience where dead people talk to me, but I do sing songs in my head that come out of my man’s mouth. He doesn’t sing as well as I do, but the very fact that he hears me singing when I’m not really singing out loud is beyond beautiful to me.
