A) well according to this site, i share a birthday with Anita Baker, Kirk Franklin, Eddie Van Halen & Paul Newman...yanno. just to name a few...
Q2) where was your first kiss?
A) hahah. this is a great memory for me. i was 7 or 8 years old & it was with my favorite summer buddy, Denny. he was an older man, just at 9 yo. he spent summers w/ his grandparents, who lived on the farm across the hills from us. he & his gramps had driven their old truck up our gravel road to visit. while his Gramps Brock & my daddy visited, Denny & i went about playing. we climbed the tree in the backyard. we were maybe 200 feet (on the ground of course) from our folks. i cant help but giggle as i reminisce about this...we were sitting about 5 feet off the ground, in the crook of a forked branch of the tree. i rememeber Denny whispered something to me. i didn't hear him initially, so when i leaned in to hear him as he repeated himself, he kissed me quickly right on my lips. i remember feeling my face heat up, my cheeks i know were red as strawberries. i screamed, "why did you have to do that?" as i shoved him from the branch to the ground. the big baby started crying & ran to his Gramps to be consoled. of course, then my daddy wanted to know what happened. i wasn't afraid to tell him either. my dad & Gramps stood there & laughed til they cried. as Denny still cried. LOL funnily enough, when he tried to kiss me again 4 yrs later, we weren't in that tree...and i certainly didn't ask him why he did that...OR shove him down. and yanno, to this day, i still do not know what that boy said to me that day in the tree...
