Friday Five

Friday Five

Decided to join the bandwagon. I think it's pretty fun. These are pretty racy because of Valentine's Day coming up.

1. What's the most romantic thing you've ever done for someone else?

Oh jeebus, I'm not the romantic one. That's Lou. I suppose it would have to be the proposal. I was the one who proposed, to him, on Thanksgiving morning, 1996. I had it all prepared ahead of time, including getting his ring size (got that by taking his hand in bed one night, and putting a thin wire keyring bent to about the right size on his ring finger. Bent it some more until I got the right size, and he asked me what I was doing. Just playing, I said. He believed me and went back to reading or watching TV), and the ring. We were at our friends' house, and they didn't know what I was planning either.

Thankgiving morning, we woke up, but I stopped him from leaving. Reached into my bag, pulled out the box. Handed it to him. He wondered what was up, but opened the box. I asked him if he'd marry me. He got all teary, I got all teary, and he said yes. Lots of kissing later, we both got up and got dressed, and we told everyone, over breakfast, I believe. I don't think he could wait anymore.

It'll be five years on February 22.

2. [pardon the cosmo question] What are your erogenous zones?

My hands. My chest. My neck and ears.

3. How old were you the first time you had sex? Care to expound?

I just remembered recently my aborted first-attempt to have sex. The guy was terribly drunk, I was drunk, and nothing happened. But I never told him that. I think to this day he still thinks we had sex.

But the first time, I was ... 20? Maybe 21, but I don't think so. He was my first real serious boyfriend, and he lived in Miami, Guatemala, and other places way down south. He came up home to visit, had a hotel room in Providence. I drove him back to the hotel, called my mother to tell her I wouldn't be coming home (she was NOT happy, and I was too chickenshit to tell her in person before we left), and we did the deed.

Much later I found out he wasn't as old as he said he was. He was younger than me, I just didn't know HOW much younger.

But he's still a friend, and may read this blog entry someday. So I'll be quiet now.

4. What's the most unusual place you've ever had sex?

Depends on how you define "had sex." (heh) We fooled around off the path at Walden Wood on fine October day, but it wasn't actual sex. It's hard to do unusual when we're both tall and Lou's large. Though we do need to break in the van one of these days.

5. Do you have plans for Valentine's Day or is it just another Thursday?

No plans as of yet. Lou's got a game, unless he decides not to go or cancels. We aren't big Valentine's Day people, with our anniversary being a week later. We purposely did NOT get married on Valentine's Day, in fact.

So maybe a dinner. Definitely a card or two. But nothing overboard.
