Notes from a Scandal

My goodness…just as I expected, that little teaser of childhood trivia yesterday sparked a lot of interest. Unfortunately, I can’t go into much detail on here since my friend reads this blog occasionally. But let’s just say that whenever the father and I were left in a room together (or in a car, or anywhere for that matter), he would tell me stories about his previous sexual experiences with men. Did I mention he was still married to my friend’s mother?

By the time I got to college, he would mail me porn magazines fairly regularly (which freaked me out for fear of them getting found). He never laid a hand on me, but he sure did try – for years. Though, to his credit, he never tried the physical things until I hit 18 years old (and was legal). Before then, it was just flirtation without any attempts at physical contact.

As a typical horny kid, I’m surprised I never let him do anything, though. I guess, even then, I had a wee bit of morality in me (where it has since gone is beyond me).

OK – enough incriminating evidence about my past. On to happier thoughts.

Here’s an updated world map of the places I’ve been (I’m including Mexico since I’ll be there in a few weeks). It appears that, aside from the U.S. and Canada, I tend to travel to tiny little countries. I mean, look at Europe! I’ve been to 4 countries there and it still looks like only a tiny red spot. Hell, you can barely even tell that I’ve been to Japan. I guess I need to change that with a trip to Russia, China, or Australia. Otherwise, it doesn’t look like I’ve been to many places.

    I suspect it was more a wee bit of freaked-out fear!

    Those maps are fun–youcan go up to Montreal for the sight-seeing and an evening with the boys dancing at Stock but as far as the map is concerned you “own” all of Canada.
