On the Ninth Day of Christ*&^%$

On the Ninth Day of Christ*&^%$, Tiz reveals to you...

I once dated a guy who said he could prove that Hitler didn't know about the gas chambers.

I once dated a guy whose kids killed a kitten. Oh God, not
under my watch.

I once dated a guy who attempted back door maneuvers with no prep or reconnaissance.

I once dated a guy who lied about everything. Really. It was kind of amazing.

I have a Wise Old Man Friend. He was my therapist years
ago. When my dad died he figured he could serve me best
by becoming my Wise Old Man Friend. We have lunch.

Until my friend killed himself I thought I carried a lot more

Friend explained how I was not responsible for Terry's
death he also explained how I was not responsible for
world hunger either. This has been a load off my mind...
and my shoulders.

    I was hit with the androgeny stick at the age of 10

    My first love was Karen Carpenter at the drums

    Wish I could play the drums

    Slept with men in college looking for the "spark."

    Got tape in my stocking one year for Christmas and was really happy about it. Was happy about the piano lessons too until my little sister turned out to be better at it than I was.
