*I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I would much rather have seconds at dinner, or potato chips or popcorn or cheese with olives. Something salty. In fact, I'm eating the remainder of a can of Bacon Ranch Pringles at the moment.
*I cannot bring myself to drink regular soda. It is diet (Coke Zero, mostly) or nothing.
*I have never cooked brussels sprouts. But actually like them.
*My favorite wine is Pinot Noir. Or Sauvignon Blanc.
*I grew up with two female cats named Groucho and Princess. I used to pronounce "Princess" as "Piss Wiss" when I was younger. Groucho slept on my pillow. I adored cats and begged and begged for another cat after they died. My parents said no.
*I am now quite allergic to cats (confirmed by an allergy test, this isn't one of those fantasy allergies like when people say they're allergic [air quotes] to smoke). But, don't worry, Mom and Dad. I don't blame you (much!)
*A stray cat sort of adopted us when we lived in Del Rio. We named him Toonces. He was not fixed. He was the first un-fixed cat I've ever seen. It was gross. We tried to bring him in our apartment once, and he freaked out.
*Del Rio had a really bad 100-year flood and Toonces disappeared.
*A few weeks later he came running out from under a car, all disheveled and crazed-looking. I wonder what he had been through. Maybe a spectacular car crash?
