This week's TMI Tuesday truly lives up to it's name.
1. Have you ever met a fellow blogger in person?
I sure have. I met Aaron from Go Away I'm Reading and he is charming, intelligent and radiant. It comes across in his writing, but in person his humor and his smile just shine.
2. Did you ever play an innocent game of "I'll show you mine if you show me yours"? How old where you?
I have never been coy enough to play "I'll show you mine if you show me yours." Jaded? Yes. Coy? Not even in the womb.
I wasn't coy, but I was imaginative, so at a very young age, my friend Tim showed me his and I showed him mine in the proper way: During a game of "Doctor."
My memory of this is fuzzy at best, but Tim was the doctor and I was his patient. And for some reason, I had to be restrained.
You read that correctly. I was maybe 7 years old and I was playing a game of "Doctor" where I was restrained. As in "tied to the bed."
Maybe my "character" was suicidal or something. Maybe I was supposed to be schizophrenic. Maybe I wanted to be Susan Hayward in I WANT TO LIVE. Who knows. Whatever the reason, I was, as I said, tied to the bed.
Which made it easier for Tim, the "Doctor," to pull my pants down. Still, I'm not quite sure how we justified a doctor needing to pull his pants down when he was standing in front of a patient who was tied to a bed.
I swear I'm not making this up. This happened.
That's as far as it went, though. Just our pants down. Just showing. No touching.
Well, I couldn't realistically touch him since I was bound tightly to his Superman sheets, but he didn't touch me. Damn it.
3. When did you get your first not so innocent kiss?
The first night I went into a gay bar. I was 18 years old and this big, beefy, muscular bear of a man took a liking to me.
Before I knew what was happening, he pulled me up to him - - yep, I said UP to him because he was so damn tall, and yes it was so damn hot!! - - and when he planted one of those "I'm hungry for love. Set the table, bitch" kind of kisses on me, my hands moved down his chest and then, I froze.
I was experiencing not only my first "The Time For Jungle Fucking Has Commenced" kiss but also, my first hot man who had both his nipples pierced!
It freaked me out, it turned me on and suddenly, vanilla wasn't my favorite flavor.
4. Have you ever awoke with someone who's name you did not remember?
Wow. That's such a great thing to realize! I'm not a tramp!!!
Hey, y'all! I'M NOT A TRAMP!!!
5. Have you ever let someone else wash you while you were perfectly capable of doing it yourself?
Wash? No. Shave? YES!
Bonus (as in optional): What makes a great first date for you?
Not having to try. When it's filled with easy conversation. When he makes me laugh.
When he reaches for my hand at the exact same time that I reach for his hand, there's no fumbling and our hands fit together so well that we don't seem to remember them ever being apart.
I had that exact date. I remember that date. And I have no idea what scared him away from me.
