    Used to be a competitive opera singer

    Are there Opera tournaments? What does competitive opera singer mean?

    back in my high school day we would compete against other schools through the Midwest singing competition ranging from sextets quartets duo solo etc... in my case operatic - perfect Germanic but very hard on voice

    Very cool!

    When I was young, first school, we had a time in class when everyone sits on the floor and beanbags while listening to the teacher. Used to be that most boys would get the beanbags first so the teacher decided to make it boys one day and girls the next so she told everyone that only those wearing skirts get to use the beanbags the next day.............The next day I went to school in a skirt and got to sit on the beanbags!!!

    Did you go to band camp and do your stories start with, “this one time in band camp........”

    I am a purveyor of perverted paintings and paraphernalia related to anything and everything that is not a real person. Also, that is legal. I prefer to not be in prison, thanks.

    I used to regularly buy 10 boxes of lucky charms breakfast cereal then open them all to take out all the marshmallows to put in Tupperware so I can eat them as a snack in bed while reading.

    You know you can just buy a bag of the marshmallows, right?

    Can get mini marshmallows for hot chocolate but the lucky charms ones were freeze died or something. Couldn’t get them on their own back when I was doing it, at least not here in uk, and I was too young to have a debt card to order online

    Oh, gotcha. Yeah, here in the U.S. you can buy giant bags of the little freeze dried ones. Oddly, I keep finding them in general stores in Amish towns. My folks always send me a new bag once a year, even though I don't eat cereal anymore! :lol:

    I don’t really care for a lot of things. I get tatted to feel something.

    Soccer is my first love - played for 13 years had to give it up - my body just wasn't meant for the game after I started lifting

    I was a child model & filmed a commercial with Bill Cosby, with a bunch of other kids. He was enormously unsettling. Fortunately, I've always been fairly intuitive & strong willed, so just stayed away from him, cuz his awkward & inappropriate over-attention & lack of personal boundaries creeped me out.

    He seemed to sense my ducking & dodging to avoid being near him... I kept repositioning myself away from him, which annoyed the director, so was therefore deemed difficult... & he kept an eye on me (no pun intended), but finally left me alone. Eventually, they phased me out of the commercial, so I didn't appear in the final edit.

    Stranger still, months later, I was asked back for a 2nd commercial with him, which I turned down... everyone chastised me cuz I was passing up $$ & I never said why (cuz the adults around me dismissed kids & their opinions, anyway, so I knew my words would fall on deaf ears), but I just didn't feel good about it.

    Trust your instincts.

    Oh wow. What a terrible thing to go through. Do you remember what the commercial was. I’m curious to see what it was. What a horrible thing to go through as a kid and adults not understanding.
