I will now answer the questions presented to me, after which I will list a few bloggers I have nominated along with my questions to them.
1. What do I remember about the first crush I ever had? I remember that S. was cuter than D. so when we played house, I sent D. off to work and S. would come in the back door.
2. What did your grandparents’ house smell like? Mohair furniture.
3. What do you think about when someone asks if you have siblings? That I had 4 but one died in 1998, on purpose.
4. What does it mean to you to be a cat or dog person? To have a soft spot somewhere in your heart.

7. What is something that drives you crazy about the person in #6? Once he starts pontificating he spaces out,
8. Is it better to settle and be a couple or keep searching? Keep searching, settling causes degredation.
9. Most annoying/hurtful/obnoxious thing ever said to you because of your identity. The most annoying thing was this question, “Do you know where Sambo’s Restaurant is”? It was the 70’s and I was a black woman with an attitude. The funny thing is the Sambo’s Restaurant was about 4 blocks from where we were when this white couple stopped me and asked. They were just trying to get something to eat. Of course, I said “no!” I would apologize for being rude if I saw them today.
