Saturday 9: Sex As A Weapon


Link is here if you're playing along.

1. Have you or a significant other ever used sex as a weapon?

Hm, maybe, but nothing that registers in my immediate recollection.

2. Tell us about the worst date you ever went on.

This girl I worked with was going out with a guy for the longest time, but he was always flirting with me when he came in to see her. So when they broke up, he got her permission to ask me out. I agreed to go out on a date with him. He took me to a restaurant, but he proceeded to try to eat my face off the entire time. I couldn't get away from him fast enough. Not only that, but he was terribly boring, and there just wasn't any good thing about being there. He called and called afterward, but I screened his calls. My (male) roommate gave me a lot of shit for not having the balls to just tell him I wasn't interested!

3. If you were a god/goddess who would you be?

Athena, goddess of love and war. Wait - she can fly, right?

4. What crime from history fascinates you the most?

Jeffrey Dahmer

5. Give us one random, but candid fact about you.

There isn't much left that I haven't shared. Eyeballs gross me out. Eye boogers?? OMG. If you come at me with a dried boog in your eye, I might slap you a little.

6. Who or what makes you laugh until you're weak?

My husband, but don't tell him, because I've been trying to convince him for years that he's not even remotely funny. Also my BFF Lisa, and once upon a time, this guy in college, who has since morphed into a new, unlikeable guy.

7. What is the most exciting adventure you’ve ever been part of?

They always involve water, whether it was snorkeling in Micronesia (I'd have dove, but I was pregnant with twins at the time) or the Dry Tortugas, or diving 110' in the wrecks off Miami, or cruising the Mediterranean with Hubs... all good times.

8. Among the people you know, who would you choose to be able to read all your thoughts?

Definitely my husband. I wouldn't trust anyone else with that information. Except maybe a good therapist!

9. How old were you when you realized that other people's families live totally differently from yours?

I was probably about 6 or 7 when I realized that people were even ALIVE and living their lives when I wasn't in person, right there with them. That shocked me. After that, it wasn't long before I realized we didn't all do things the same way.

Happy Easter!
