I can’t believe that I have the same favorite historical figures as a guy that sounds pretty non-physical. Black Pigeon and I both find Richard Francis Burton is the most interesting man in history. But, I was a fat, little, dreamy, picked-upon boy before I decided to remake myself in the image of Roberto Duran… and became a psychopath.
This is a nice piece of belated introduction, which is the way I like it. Check out Black Pigeon Speaks.
The question, “What was your first fully formed memory?” struck me, as mine is supposed to be impossible. I claimed that my first memory was of a woman bringing my little brother to the screen door of our house in Aberdeen Road and me standing next to our mother and seeing him through the screen. No one believed me until I described the details of the scene to my mother and she was aghast, "Saying, "I never told anyone about that."
This happened when I was 18-months old and you humans aren’t supposed to be able to recollect things from your first two years, which kind of gives my secret away, and reminds me, that it’s about time to start writing Extra Terrestrial Opinions again.
