I guess it started when I was in camp Highmount at about age 8 and went to the prom with 3 boys all of whom mutinied because I was “too bossy”.
If those little shits stood on top of each other they weren’t as tall as I was.
Of course I took command.
I did have a bit of a set back in the fifth grade when I was sitting in between David Gillis and Richard Sheslow and I farted during Assembly.
It was only temporary because I’m pretty sure I covered it up with a loud “Ahem”.
I was a bit slow in developing so in the seventh grade I wore a bra with blow up falsies only to discover due to Richard Rubin’s hysterical laughter while on the lunch line that they can dent.
Luckily I was able to wear my faux mink stole for the rest of the day.
My love of animals was not dwarfed by my sense of style.
I mean I was a trend setter. Practically no one wore fur in seventh grade.
High school was another place that I soared.
I was extremely popular and not just because I put out.
I went to Music and Art which was not only a hippy school but where I gained my first success.
I completed 3 years of french without being able to speak more than one or two words of it.
Obviously one of those words was “oui”.
Overcoming setbacks is just a bit of what made me who I am today, a very beautiful and accomplished social drinker who is absolutely loving the fact that I can stay in my house without making up excuses to all of my fans.
BTW a tip to you gardeners. Do not plant mint. It is useless and takes over your garden.
