What is one thing that you would change about yourself if you could? I would be more focused, more disciplined.
Name three exotic countries you would like to visit: There aren't any. However, there are places in the US I haven't seen but would like to. 1) The Grand Canyon; 2) Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown; 3) New Orleans
What do you think the secret to life is? I'll let JT speak for me.
Best concert: Sir Paul at Wrigley Field, 2011
Song you can listen to over and over and not get tired of:
Worst movie music soundtrack or score: Anything that's primarily classical. Like Amadeus, Humoresque or Song of Love. I'm sorry, but I hate the classics.
A song you wish wouldn't get stuck in your head but always does: "The Candy Man can cuz he mixes it with love and makes the world taste goooood." Late last spring, workmen were renovating the apartment at the end of the hall and for some reason, they were listening to a Sammy Davis Jr. CD or Sirius station. (I know, not what you'd expect from drywallers in 2018.) Anyway, as I was taking out the trash, "The Candy Man" was playing. I swear, it was stuck in my head for hours and hours and hours.
Who was your FIRST date? Jeff. It was a school dance.
Do you still talk to your FIRST love? No.
What was your FIRST alcoholic drink? Probably a sip of beer when I was really little. I don't remember,
What was your FIRST job? Babysitting.
What was your FIRST car? First an only: a big old Chevy Impala.
Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane? Ft. Lauderdale. I went with my cousin to see my favorite uncle.
Who was your FIRST best friend & do you still talk? Yes. I spoke to her just this week.
Whose wedding did you attend the FIRST time? When I was in Kindergarten, I attended the wedding of our next door neighbor's son, Billy. I loved him so. He had shiny black hair and always wore black t-shirts. Whenever he came home to his parents' house to wash his car in their driveway, he let me help. I would sponge the hubcaps. He told me I did such a good job that he would marry me some day. LIAR! He married some hairsprayed bitch named Sandy and my parents actually dragged me to the wedding. To her dying day, my mother loved telling the story of how sullen and angry this little Gal was about losing the man I referred to all day as "my husband."
Tell us about your FIRST roommate. I have never had a roommate.
If you had one wish, what would it be (other than more wishes)? Perfect health.
What is something you would learn if you had the chance? Spanish
Did you marry the FIRST person you were in love with? No. Billy married that hairsprayed bitch, Sandy, instead.
What were the first lessons you ever took and why? Ballet. My mother made me.
What is the first thing you do when you get home? Feline headcount. My beige tom, Reynaldo, always meets me at the door. But my girlcat, Connie, doesn't always make herself visible and so I worry until I'm sure she's OK.
