My grandparents’ neighbor, known for his collection of cars that he moved to keep out of the sun and covered in towels, huge family, beautiful lawn, and ability to never have a job.

While I remember almost nothing of her teaching, I do remember that she used her fake arm as both a weapon and an instrument to constantly pull her nasty wig back into position.

The boy my parents forbid me to see, that I dated for nine months behind their backs.  Six years older than me, was sweet and a virgin.   Years later, I finally deflowered him.

Having grown up in Kuwait, he knew violence.  Liked to make fun of the gory driver’s ed movies.  When he saw I was upset at one, tried to protect me from seeing it.

Otherwise frustrated coach and teacher with a pedistache, taught driver’s ed with an intensity that just make kids laugh at him.  Thought he was going to have a heart attack in every class.

Most chill dude ever.  Never raised his voice or used the idiot brake.  When I was going 15 over the highway speed limit, he calmly asked what I thought I should do about that.

My first friend in new school, first date, first dance, first kiss.  After that kiss, he said, “Well,that kind of sucked, didn’t it?” and called me a couple days later to break up.

Dreamed last night of putting you to sleep again; woke up sobbing.  I didn’t mean to get a cat that day, but you held my eyes across the store, and it was love.

During the height of X-Files fame, met Langly at a conference in Nashville. He seemed a little frightened of my exuberance over meeting him; I was embarrassed to wear my glasses in our picture.

Watching him perform, he said to me, “You look like a prepared young lady” and asked me to open a condom, which he threaded through his nose. I wasn’t sure that was a compliment.
