Teasers

When I went to nursery school, I was teased out of my native language because I really didn't understand English.

I nearly drowned twice before the age of five.

My first sexual experience was awkward, clumsy, and not terribly satisfying.

My parents divorced when I was thirteen, and my initial response was being pleased that my father was moving out of the house.

I used to talk to Orion (the constellation) as a way to get my head straight.

I love that in Tuscon, AZ, there are restaurants where you can dine while watching javelina.

I once stood about 6 feet away from a full grown bull moose.

Re: Teasers

What was your native language? :)

And at the risk of sounding ignorant, what's javelina?

Re: Teasers

I grew up speaking Maine gutter-French. It's all but gone now.

Javelina are bush pigs native to South America which migrated north. They've become pretty common in some parts of the American southwest.

Re: Teasers

Heh... still am, really.

Seriously, though, I'm a second generation Quebecois transplant. The spoken word came from having grown up in a pocket French-Canadian community that has all but disolved at this point.
