I had a dear friend in high school who worked at a coffee shop in Tallahassee. I explained to him that I liked the smell of coffee, but had no interest in coffee itself. He made me a concoction of 1/2 coffee, 1/2 milk and about 12 teaspoons of sugar. It was still disgusting and bitter. He relented: “You’re right, Bonnie. You don’t like coffee.”

And I may be an Anglophile and partial to British men, but no tea for me.

I’m from Florida and hate seafood. I like hush puppies and key lime pie. #totallycounts #legit

My favorite place on earth is the V&A in London, my favorite drink is Cherry Coke, I’m obsessed with anything from Depeche Mode to Beethoven’s 9th to Yacht Rock to neo-soul to the Beach Boys, and I can laugh endlessly at the antics of Boss Hogg and Roscoe P. Coltrane.


It’s a miracle I’m still single, huh? (Cracking myself up!)

This one was fun— thanks for the grins!
