    I will start.
    I like to wait on people, you know, serve them? I really DO!
    But I also like being waited on...

    When I was a kid I was so uncannily accurate in the roulette games at the Tri-County Fair that people would give me money to play so they could get the toys, I always won, mostly stuffed animals.

    I knew which number, color, or letter the dice was going to land on.

    I couldn't keep more than a few stuffed animals at a time, because I didn't feel I could give them all the attention they needed, so I gave away everything I won, mostly to the Salvation Army. :rolleyes:

    I didn't yet make the connection that those poor stuffed animals sat lonely on shelves. :(

    My secret is that I sometimes swear savagely at inanimate objects that refuse to cooperate with me.
    And this makes Jim worry about my mental health.

    My first taste of raw spinach happened when a gay friend of mine took me to restaurant in Panama City. I was 20.
    Wow... I didn't know spinach could taste so good!

    He laughed. A total spinach newby. :)

    I used to tie knots in cherry stems with my tongue, just to freak people out.

    I own a chicken costume.
    And I paid full price for it.
    And I didn't buy it by accident. I knew what I was doing when I made the purchase. (Not drunk, well...probably not)

    The way I met this guy is because I had a very good friend, with whom I was the very first person ever she told that she was a lesbian. She was terrified. Absolutely terrified that I would judge her and wouldn't want to be her friend. This was back in 1980, when people were still uncomfortable with that.

    I took her to a gay bar so she could meet people like her. She was very lonely and thought she would never have a relationship.

    I was just coming out of the divorce from the dude who used to beat the crap out of me so that place was great for me. I could dance to my heart's content, without having to deal with someone hitting on me.

    I used to help the drag queens put their make-up on and plan their shows. I was the first straight person who knew the Bible who actually accepted them. Until they met me, the Bible had been used as a weapon against them. I showed them how it spoke of how they were loveable. This seemed to be a huge big deal to all those guys.

    That was a odd time in my life. Pretty much every guy I met was gay.

    Another odd thing, too. Everyone loved me in the gay bar, except the butch lesbians. For some reason they did not like me, at all. I think its cause they all had secret crushes for my friend and didn't like that we were friends.

    Who knows???

    I always appreciated that so many people in that bar accepted me, just the way I am, even if I am hetero. (lol) :)

    This is really not a secret... but it's probably something most here don't know about me.

    During that time in my life, I was often the first person people told about all sorts of secrets in their lives, because I didn't judge them. And I helped many understand things and/or heal, if that was needed.
