1. have you ever gotten into a physical fight?
even though I’ll always be an angerball, I’ve always had a tendency to try to restrain or dispel fights or at the very least remove myself from them.
This is what I thought of, it was uncharacteristic of me:
When I was in middle school, I was walking around my neighborhood, a group of neighbor boys (they were my friends, btw) were behind me, I was really upset about something and I just flipped around and kicked the legs out from under the oldest boy and knocked him on his ass.
I was sobbing by the time I got home, trying to tell my mom and my soon to be step-father what had happened, I think this is one of my step-father’s favorite stories about me.
The guy wasn’t hurt and he was much nicer to me afterwards, all the neighborhood boys were, actually.
7. do you plan on having kids?
The short answer is - No.
I wanted kids. I wanted to have kids and adopt and I would have been good at it, non-traditional, but good. I am failing at finding my childrearing-partner-in-crime. And I’m aware I could just go it alone, I’d be pretty good at that, but my parents were divorced before I could even form many memories of them together. And while they were and are good parents, so much fell through the cracks, so much of me fell through the cracks. So, I’ve always known I wouldn’t go that route.
Anyway, my entire adult life I’ve been aware of that ticking clock, I just… I’m pretty ok with taking the batteries out of that clock and moving on. Nurture the humans that are already on the planet. You tumblroos can start calling me Auntie Jennifery. (except maybe don’t) I have a tag for these feelings:I call you my babies now
yep, you tumblroos are my babyharem now.
12. have you ever had a “paranormal” experience?
I think all of my experiences can be explained normally but I’m not going to say no.
19. what’s something you find funny that most people don’t think is funny?
I don’t know…how do you feel about being in the baby harem? Because I was laughing quite a lot when I wrote that. There are plenty of things I don’t find funny and I get a lot of stares for most of the things I think are funny.
I find just about everything a combination of sad, infuriating, and hilarious. I try to focus on hilarious. I try.
I think finding the funny in a bad situation is power, sometimes the only power to be had and successfully finding the funny with someone else is a sort of alchemy.
Thanks for the questions, Kevin!
