5 Things You Don't Know About Me

Well, these are five things that most of you don't know about me. Lulu probably knows them all. Something everyone should know about me is that I am rarely secretive. I've got nothing to hide and hiding stuff takes too much energy.

1. I saw a dead man on the sidewalk in front of the bus station on my first visit to Detroit. Word to the wise, stay away from the bus station in Detroit.
2. I always smoked before I went on the air at the college radio station. I liked what it did to my voice.
3. I hate that I never learned to play an instrument. My mother was right.
4. Nothing has felt the same since I lost my mom two years ago. I know I'm an adult, but it seriously screwed me up.
5. I now fill this void with loud music and my children. I will be deaf soon and my children will one day run screaming.

I know that you smoked in college, but not why....the other stuff I knew.

I feel the same way about losing my dad last year. Do we ever get past it?

Ten, Beth, yes and no. My dad died 9 years ago and every once in a while it still feels unreal. I think when your parent dies it's a real stark reminder that your place in the world is changing, and your own clock is ticking.

sorry about the loss of your mother- that is my biggest fear in life to leave my kids behind and the pain they may experience in my passing. and the fear that they might not miss me, and have a big party celebrating my death. Either way too painful.....

No one loves you as much as your parent, unless that parent is very screwed up. Part of it is biology, I guess, but it's there. I don't think you ever fully get over the loss of that much love.

At least you won't hear the kids screaming Tenacious! Your list was illuminating.
