1. How old is your longest living relative?
This is an excellent question. I have a whole passel of relatives. I could not begin to track all of their precise ages. It does seem, however, that folks in my family don’t make it much past their 80s.
2. Do you hope to live to this age? Why?
As someone who lives with chronic pain, and as someone with a familial history of dementia, no, I have no desire to spend that many more years on the earth. Hell, I have days now when the pain makes me wonder why I’m still around at this age.
3. What is your family’s native language? Your native language?
My native language and my family’s language are both the same: English.
4. How old were you when you started dating?
I had the odd date or two in my sophomore year, so 15(ish)? I didn’t have a dating relationship until my junior year of high school which would have made me 16(ish).
5. How old were you when you first had sex–any kind of sex?
Well, “any kind of sex” implies that masturbation is included. Since most children begin self-exploration at a very young age I can’t possibly answer this accurately.
Bonus: How would you describe your sense of humor?
My sense of humor ranges from fart jokes to high brow. Most of the time I am quick to laugh. I find humor in things many do not. This can cause people to think I’m being mean when that is the furthest thing from the truth.
