    sandals you wore at the beach (now called flip-flops) I remember when "straight" meant either "not on drugs" or referred to a released convict who mended his ways and "went straight" I remember when "queer" was a derogatory term for gays. I remember when "to bomb" an exam...

    Sitting on the embankment next to the Arno

    I'm hoping someone can help ME remember

    something! Back when I was in grade school (in the 1960's) there was a "gross out"song the kids (mostly boys) would sing. One version went as follows: Great, green, gobs of greasy grimey gophers' guts, Multilated monkey meat, Concentrated turkey feet, One quart can of all...

    bipolar. Me and my brother walked in on my mother, sitting on the floor in the middle of the living room. She was wrapping Christmas presents and crying her eyes out. We asked what was wrong and she looked up at us like it was the worse question to ask her. "I'm bipolar." That's...

    In infant school when I was around 5

    or 6, there was a little boy called Jason in one of my classes. He wore glasses, was very shy like me, and had a patch over one of his eyes. One day I blurted out something silly over what the sticker on his face was for, and since then we became the best of friends, and I used...

    I remember when I used to be

    so fragile, so naive, so caring and trusting. 14 years old, aching to be 16 because I thought age labeled a person. I thought it would label me just as mature as I felt on the inside. I thought, that when I turned 16, I would be a woman. I was wrong. My 16th birthday opened a...

    since I've seen you, but I can remember everything about your face. No one talks to me like you did. I hope wherever you are, you know that. I hope you revel in the fact that since you've been gone, no one has come close to taking your place. I sometimes think you were the last...

    This story is one that I love to retell.

    As I catch myself adamantly talking about this event, I find that I am always adding new information -- like I am reliving that day. It reminds me of how much I loved hearing my father rant about his wild adventures as a young-adult. It’s almost as if he has a syllabus of...

    Mum hated spiders, so did I.

    As a particularly evil punishent when I was a child she'd make me go outside into the garage and use the end of a broom to remove cobwebs. It made me absolutely hysterical. I'd be crying and begging her, anything but that, but it was futile. As you walked in there was a dank...

    Why Me?

    I haven't had a woman in five years.  No, let me retract that statement.  I don't have a girlfriend or partner.  I never could seem to find what I needed. When you feel horny, lonely or a bit desperate you can always find what you want.  Instant gratification is everywhere...

    I remember the power you had over me causing me to shake like the leaves of a tree in a thunderstorm. I remember how you made me feel beautiful more than any other man. I remember loving you and asking for nothing in return. I remember. Do you?
