If not here, I would live in…
a loft–with hardwood floors.
or his arms.
preferably all of the above.
My dream holiday would be to…
eat well, sleep peacefully, read by the water,
and shop for do-dads and what-nots
in a warm place
where the sun makes me 2 shades darker and perfectly glow-y.
My current obsessions are…
experimenting with veganism and raw foods,
locing my hair,
my next marathon,
moving through bodies of water without a flotation device,
that song “Adorn” by Miguel,
I channel my childhood self when I…
play with my nieces and nephews,
eat cereal and/or Mike and Ikes,
and/or am alive.
If I had to be outdoors all day I would…
be taking pictures of random stuff;
maybe running a bit;
or spray painting something;
likely wearing sunglasses.
My favorite quality in a man is…
and/or the ability to be vulnerable,
and/or his wrists,
and/or that beat your chest posturing Mahn-ly Mahn thing they do.
My favorite quality in a woman is…
preferably with a side of humor and fashion sense
and/or the ability to giggle at girl stuff.
I’m terrified of…
being single at 60;
people who text and drive;
losing (my facade of) control;
bent and broken people (who don’t know they’re bent or broken).
My dream car is a…
completely paid off mid-sized late model SUV.
My cocktail of choice is…
(with lime and a little ginger).
My celebrity crush is…
clearly too busy to entertain my notions
and/or waiting to meet my wonderfulness.
My beauty product of choice is…
and/or shea butter and Noxzema.
My friends and I like to…
talk on the phone for excessive amounts of time;
buy things for ourselves;
read nutrition labels;
and get too busy with life to get together often.
If I could go back in time for one decade it would be…
the 70’s when I’d probably live on the West Coast;
wear love beads and an afro;
fight the power.
As a teenager I was totally into…
gold—necklaces, shoes, my glasses; even my rain jacket–14k all the way;
I tend to splurge on…
gas–oh yeah, I have to pay that much.
Today I am…
thinner than I was at 13; the aunt of a today-turned-9-year old niece; wearing a really green scarf.
