Meme from Tornwordo

I'm answering 5 questions from Tornwordo on my blog and then if anyone wants to play along, I can ask YOU 5 questions that you can answer on YOUR blog. If you want to play, leave a comment on this post and I will send you your questions.

1. Do you still wonder what you want to be when you grow up?

Yes, and I hope I will always wonder. I never want to feel like 'this is my life, this is my job, this is what I want to be/do when I grow up'. I hope I will always be open to new opportunities to be and do something different if it feels right.

2. What is your favorite dessert?
Ugh! To me that's like asking a parent which of their children is their favorite. I love desserts. I really love chocolate so if I have to pick one, I'd probably pick a chocolate fudge brownie. But then again, I have several non-chocolate favorites too, like my aunt Mary's hummingbird cake, coconut cake, and cherry pie.

3. What is the most frightened you've ever been?
Sept 11, 2001. After learning of the plane crashes into the twin towers, the Pentagon (3 miles from my house), and that field in PA I really didn't know what to expect next. Living so close to Washington DC and the metro system I wondered if the Capitol, the White House, or the underground train system would be next. I knew that I had family members working downtown. I was truly frightened for them and for myself.

4. How did you discover the joys of the male machinery? Did it scare you?
Hmm, I suppose the same way most other boys learned: self exploration! I knew my parents (and their religion) forbid it so I was often afraid of getting caught. I do recall being alarmed the first time my self exploration 'came' to fruition, if you will. I didn't quite understand what had happened. I was pretty young. My dad's "birds and the bees" talk was a little late I guess.

5. Ever done drag?
No. One year I was going to dress up as the 'Coffee Talk' lady Linda Richmond for Halloween because I could imitate her voice and monologue so well. My friend Debbie loaned me a wig and some clothes. But when I put on my costume I just felt uneasy. I wanted to have fun on Halloween so I decided to drop the 'Coffee Talk' costume for something more comfortable. That being said, I love to watch others appear/perform in drag, and I have an affinity for drag queen names.

Drag Queen name of the day: Ida Hoe

Great answers. My uncle tells a tale of evacuating Washington that day that is just harrowing. I can understand the fear.
