A is for Abnormal. I have one flat foot and one arched foot.
B is for Baseball. I have never seen the Dodgers win in person. Every Dodger game I go to, they lose.
C is for Canada. I went to the Vermont Reggae Festival, which is close to Canada. I didn't believe it existed either, and I've never been to Canada - not even Windsor near Detroit.
D is for Dihanne Carroll. I was the original kid to be cast as Corey Baker for the TV show 'Julia'.
E is for Embarrassing. When I first heard the news that President Reagan had been shot, the first thing I blurted out was 'Did they get him?'. I'm sure it's the crudest thing I've ever said. I was at work in a bank at the time.
F is for Fat. I have gained an average of 3 pounds a year since I got married 14 years ago. I once lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks.
G is for Fort Greene. I have partied with Spike Lee & Wynton Marsalis in Brooklyn.
H is for Handwriting. In the sixth grade I got straight As and a C in handwriting. My father made me practice my cursive for weeks. Now I print.
I is for Incindiary. In the sixth grade I smoked my first cigarette and started a fire that almost burned down a neighbor's garage.
J is for Juggle. I only learned to juggle because the first person I saw do it was drunk and I couldn't stand the idea that a drunk could do something I could not.
K is for Kwanzaa. I was present at the very first Kwanzaa.
L is for Life Threatening. I have witnessed a teenage kid pull out a Glock and point it in the face of a man standing five feet away from me.
M is for Misfortune. I have worked directly as a peer or direct report to at least four people who have made millions of dollars in my industry. My car isn't even paid for.
N is for Neat Freak. I love putting things into boxes. The perfect gift for me are small things and small ornate boxes to place them in.
O is for Osteo. I have been in three motorcycle accidents but never broke a bone. I did get my nose broken by a wild pitch.
P is for Pervert. When I shave my moustache and beard and wear glasses, I look like a psychopath.
Q is for Quibble. My IQ has consistently been between 129 and 136, but I'm surely too lazy for that to matter.
R is for Relations. I have family in France, Italy, Senegal, and South Dakota.
S is for States. I've been to 43. All except (Maine, Alaska, Kansas, N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Montana, Wyoming)
T is for Typesetting. My first company, EBB Text & Graphics printed the ballots for the 1988 Soul Train Awards.
U is for Undercover. One of my friends is an ex-CIA operative, but we don't talk about it.
V is for Vice. I would spend all of my money on expensive watches.
W is for Writing. I have written about 6500 blog posts, 1100 comic strips, 154 restaurant reviews and 51 songs since 2001.
X is for Ex-Xerox. I used a mouse and email for the first time in 1985.
Y is for Yellow. I absolutely love Panang Curry. I would even eat Panang Curry Dog.
Z is for Zymurgy. Other than my uncle's homemade hard cider, I had my first drink of alcohol at the age of 26.
