    I sneaked reads of inappropriate novels when I was a kid & Im mostly ok.

    I don’t remember what age I was when I read a romance novel laying around my house but when it got to the first naughty scene… I threw that thing away from me and into the closet. I did go back for it though but I was just too pure. 🥲

    😂 i love this

    Dayuuuum. I've done Harold Robbins and Jackie Collins and all the VC Andrews books.

    I think my first trashy novel as a kid was Sheila Levine is Dead and Living in New York by Gail Parent. At one point in my adulthood I thought it would be interesting to reread but I could never find a copy.

    Raise your hand if you've read Judy Blume. My whole 5th grade class pretty much did their oral reports on Forever.

    I moved on to sci fi fantasy like David Eddings and Mercedes Lackey.
    There was a copy in the library that fell open to all the right pages. I was older by then. 12 or 13

    Any highlighting?
    The librarians we had would not have tolerated such shenanigans. But I still know that you shouldn’t put cologne on delicate body parts.

    The library was such an important part of my adolescence. It’s where my friends I gathered from the ages of 12 through about 15 or 16 when we started being hooligans at the park. And honestly I learned so much willingly and freely. Greek myths and the joy of sex. It was just a very fun, rich existence.
    Omg. This explains so much of our differences. I was just telling my one son today “I’m so glad I grew up in the time when malls were cool hangout places.” That’s where you’d find me at those ages. And then working there when I was old enough. (We went to our mall today. It’s LEGIT a Planet Fitness with a mostly empty mall attached. It’s pitiful.) I did like to read though.

    I have learned a good (I won’t say valuable) lesson since interacting on MFP with people I don’t know.

    If I’m irritated or have a differing opinion on a post.

    Keep my mouth shut. 🤐

    I get this. Every time im on here i see something i find irritating or i dont agree with. I for the most part leave it alone. In real life vigorous debate is not only good, its necessary. On social media not so much. Or at least not for me anyway, and definitely not on MFP

    We had a mall but many people still shopped “on the avenue” so we hung out more in the streets & in the park than in the mall & that probably explains some things too. There was a big shift from 13 and 14 at the library to 15, 16, & 17 being a little wild

    I grew up in a town of 5,000 people. When I went off to college, my freshman class was over 5,000 students, let alone the rest of the university, let alone the city it was in...bit of a culture shock.

    I love most abandoned buildings with interesting architecture. I always find some sort of beauty in them.

    Although I listened to them when I was a kid I can’t tolerate these bands now for even a few seconds.
    Basically I hate these bands.
    Bob Seger
    Styx
    Foreigner
    and I hate to admit it but the ex completely soured me on Phil Collins (post Genesis) other than a few songs.

    A post reminded me,
    I was at the hardware store a couple weeks ago, had a cart full of stuff.
    I’m standing in line and these two men (looked like they’d been in the dirt all day), maybe my age, came up behind me, I noticed each one of them only had a bolt.
    I told them they could go ahead of me, one guy opened his hand and showed me 2 bolts, “can I still go?”
    We laughed.
    It’s very easy for me to talk to men.
    I just talk to them the way they talk.
    I’ve had a lot of years listening to men droll on…………😂

    I have a phobia about drive-thru car washes.
    I won’t go.

    I'll go through if someone else is driving but I've never actually driven a car into one because I panic about what will happen when I can't get my wheels into the track and I get stuck inside and cause a pile up...And probably drown cause...water

    I just hate it when that happens.

    Have you drowned in a car wash before? I'd hate for that to happen, too. 😋

    Took my two dogs through a car wash back in the summer. One dog absolutely LOVED the experience, couldn't turn his head fast enough to look everywhere at once.

    The other dog completely FREAKED OUT and had to be physically restrained, poor thing.

    I will not drive through a drive-thru car wash.
    The lack of control in the confined building gives me the creeps.

    I think I mentioned this already but once I was in a drive-thru car wash, was convinced my mirror was going to get bashed and rolled down my window to move my mirror.
    I did not get the window up fast enough.
    Right in my face, that disgusting soapy, recycled water.
    I was drenched, only on the left side tho, lol. 😂
    I have not been inside one since.
