You know, I mentioned over in this thread that once again, my answers to such juicy questions is…boring. I’m okay with that, but it seems so, well, boring.
There was an episode of Murphy Brown years ago where the male news anchor spouted similar personal facts on the air, following each statement with a defensive but definitive, “Annd…good for me!”
You see, I:
Am female, straight, and never experimented (or was interested in experimenting) with the opposite sex, as mentioned in the link above. Don’t have anything against those who do; it just ain’t my cup of tea.
Had sex for the first time at age 26. Now, that was partly due to a strict adherence to religious morals at a younger age, but it was also me being too busy and preoccupied to care much…though I sure would’ve liked a steady boyfriend in high school, it just wasn’t a priority and I was okay doing the academic/theater/arts thing.
Married the man I gave my virginity to…who, believe it or not, gave his virginity to me (changed “lost” to “gave” at his request here).
Have never been completely drunk. I have been buzzed, though!
Have never used an illegal drug, or a legal drug illegally. Never interested me, though I hung out with friends who were into pot and LSD in high school. I did get a contact high once, if that counts for anything.
Have never smoked a cigarette. My smoking father, who I despised as a child, removed any desire for this.
Have never been arrested, or done anything worthy of being arrested (I don’t think). Hell, I’ve never even had a speeding ticket…though I DID get ticketed for failure to yield at an intersection when I was 16. Ooooooooh.
I have no issues with people who are homo- (or bi-)sexual, have been arrested, have lost their virginity at a more “normal” age, gotten drunk or high, or smoked…to each their own. But it seems I’ve chosen a very boring route.
And…and…GOOD FOR ME!
I am here taking pride in my lack of drama or unusualness! I know there are others; join me! Celebrate your vanilla life!
(I do have a friend who’s a dancer at Spearmint Rhino…does that count for anything on my cool-meter?)
