Yea.......this is worthy of being shameful - LOL
I used to get men chatting me up wanting to know if I wanted to be a model/pop singer.... such a tragic chat up line....
I kept a Vine Ivy for 15 years (before I killed it), and for a variety of reasons I used to talk to it occationally. I once even thought he moved... his name was Hector, and Hector use to receive christmas card from house guests.. so sweet
