    I'd like to hear from folks 1 or 2 things that either folks here or in 'real world' would never guess about you......

    Example: no one who has met me would ever guess that I am most likely listening to classical music while driving down the road in my pickup truck!

    I'm pretty open about my nuances here. The false anonymity of the internet and all.

    Most people would never guess that I also listen to classical.

    Most people would never guess that I used to be a raving alcoholic and stabbed a man in a fight once. It was 4 on one. I had to even the odds. I won. And I liked it.

    Most people would never think that I have a huge soft spot in my heart for down's kids, and even down's adults.

    I cry at weddings and when holding newborns.

    I have a body count. I consider it to be open for additions. And I kept a souvenir.

    I've been accused of crimes I never committed.

    I've gotten away with crimes I have committed.

    I've never been convicted of anything on either side of that coin.

    I'm more afraid of being even a temporary invalid than death. Why be afraid of death?

    No self description on the Internet can be taken seriously enough to picture a true person behind it. The anonymity has one advantage - we can focus on substance and ignore personalities. The exact opposite often prevails in real life.

    Edit. I do the same as chloeshooter says he does, so no surprise here.

    Most people would never guess some of the "other" things I collect, like hats. I sold my comic collection to put my baby brother through his first 5 semesters of college after our dad died. Until l left NY, I kept "intouch" with several of my former students who were of the "Severe and profoundly" disabled type(Downs, autistic spectrum, etc.), even helping the sister of one change his residence to someplace where he was understood. I was still on the Advisory Bd. Of the group home my late brother( the other one) lived at until he passed from cancer in 2002 at the age of 32, until 2011.

    For all my bravado and big talk, I'm an extremely insecure person. I'm terrified all the time that everyone around me (those I like anyway) secretly hates me, and I wear my emotions on the outside for the whole world to see.

    This is why no one would ever expect the more "alarming" things about me I stated above, but probably wouldn't be surprised to see me cry while holding a new born.

    That's another thing folks don't know about me. I've been accused of being the father when I most definitely was NOT. Not unless pregnancies (and with twins!!) last longer than a year, and they STILL managed to come out looking like the woman's husband (whom she didn't meet until after our fling, I've never been a homewrecker, and never will be)

    I once rented a house from a lawyer in Hawaii, the Big Island, and stayed there for a short while. One of the best times of my life. Took my kids along with, it was sweet.

    My dad and I found a very elderly, overweight lady who was trying to find help after her husband had wrecked, in the woods of a national forest while we were hunting. We took her back to her husband, then drove them home. Her and I write letters to each other on occasion and send Christmas cards to each other.
