I read to the deaf and blind at hospitals, and teach origami at an old folks' home on weekends. Old ladies help ME cross the street. I once ate an entire horse so whenever someone says "I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse" I can say "I did". My smile alone could bring the economy out of recession, if only I didn't have to compete with McDonald's. Menopause has spontaneously reversed upon meeting me. The windows 7 commercials were MY idea. Instead of "googling", people call me. 3D glasses are required on dates with me. I haven't seen Titanic or The Sixth Sense.

I remember the days when peanuts were a delicious ice cream topping and not a deadly allergen. Playing hide-n-seek and having to be home when the street lights came on. Listening to MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice and Weird Al Yankovic on my hand-me-down red ghetto blaster.

My biggest financial transactions revolved around a weekly allowance, Christmas and birthdays. Saturday morning cartoons were actually good, like Inspector Gadget, Punky Brewster, Carebears, Transformers, He-Man, G.I. Joe, X-men, Bugs Bunny and Tweety.

We used to pass notes in class instead of text message; call people on the phone and have a huge list of memorized phone numbers; met people face-to-face; used hard-bound encyclopedias in libraries to look up facts; had film cameras, got our pictures developed and placed them in bulky photo albums.
i am a robot. you are a hurricane. we don't always see eye to eye. giggling laughter. passion. destruction. risk. pain. love. sex. music. conversation. comfortable silence. slow dancing. soulmates and guardian angels. you will be my muse. i will be your storyteller.

one day
