Most embarrassing story? This is really dumb…I was walking down the hallway in High School behind Tina Kuiava, who was this girl who between the summer of junior high and high school transformed herself by getting contacts, new clothes, braces off her teeth, hair coloring etc, into this adorable undiscovered beauty (which I’m sure she always was)..And as I am walking behind her in awe, well aware that she would never give me the time of day, a girl behind me yelled “Hey Tina” in this very high pitched girls voice. Tina spins around, looks directly at me and says, “yes?”…And I was such a skinny, goofy little kid that 10th grade year (well maybe all the grades actually) that to have THE Tina Kuiava think that this high pitched dog whistle came out of me…I turned CRIMSON!!! That’s it…If Tina only knew…Dumb, huh?
When I was younger I wanted to be…A Cardiac Surgeon! Since age 10…I saw an article in Life magazine featuring Ted Dietrich, who oddly enough is here in Phoenix!
Favorite quote? The entire Gettysburg Address….or.. “Either this man’s dead or my watch has stopped”….Grouch Marx
