Earliest childhood memory?
I have a few:
*Me in a two-man band and eventually writing an original song
*Making greeting cards and forcing my aunties and uncles to buy them
*Me acting (I don’t think I knew it then) but I would [pretend to be] a teacher and the plants and chickens in the house were my students.
*Me insisting on tucking my big t-shirts into my leggings. My siblings always laughed at me.
You would never date?
Someone that’s unkind
Three famous people you could never take on a date?
