Participant Two // Survey Four
1. Tell me about the first date you ever went on?
I b I believe the first date I ever went on was with my first boyfriend ever. I was a sophomore in high school and we were both on our highschools’ golf teams. What I remember about it was supplying a coupon for buy one get one. He bought the round and we played. I won. It’s really hard to hold hands and walk with clubs.
2. What is the hardest thing you have ever done?
I think the hardest thing I had to do was receive healing and come to the terms with the molestation I experienced as a child. I was molested from ages 4-10 by two different people. It wasn’t until I was 17 that I began to self-explore, seek healing, and forgive those who wronged me. I’m still not 100% healed and will always be recovering, but I am much better now than I was even a year or two ago.
Is there someone you would like to meet if you could bring anyone back from the dead?
Is it weird for me to say Jesus? Because theoretically, he would have to come back from the dead AGAIN. But hey, if he did it once, he can do it again, right? Regardless, my answer is Jesus.
4. What are your parents’ names?
Timothy Lee Slattery Jr. and Dorothy Winthrop Henry
5. Tell me about your last dream?
I dreamed that I made a fleece blanket with cats on one side and dogs on the other. Then they came to life and started fighting. The dogs won.
6. Do you listen to the radio?
No. I don’t even have any stations preset in my car. Though if I lived in Tucson, I would listen to KXCI.
7. What is your most embarrassing moment?
I know this sounds lame, but I don’t think I have one. I got in a fight with my best friend at a bar once and he left me there by myself. That kind of sucked.
8. Do you have a favorite myth?
Um… I don’t have a favorite myth, but when I was little, my father used to tell us this story about a guy named three-fingered willy who roamed around looking for his missing fingers. It’s not a myth or a legend. I thought it was a widely told story until I shared it with my class and no one had ever heard of it. Turns out my father is just a really good storyteller.
What were you scared of as a child?
Clowns. hands down.Do you know your neighbors?
Yeah! My neighbors who live to the right of me hate us. They leave notes on anyone’s car who park too close to their house. (but it’s the street, NOT their house, so they can suck it) Amber and Bri live caddy corner to us and they’re really nice. They had us over for the Fourth of July and we drank Bloody Marys, watched Mars Attacks, and climbed their roof to watch the fireworks at Tempe Town Lake. The neighbors across the street just moved out while the neighbors to the left just moved in. Down the ways a little bit there’s an old couple named Wayne and Irma. They always give us oranges when their trees are ripe and I see them all the time walking in the neighborhood. I know about 100 people who live in my neighborhood though. There’s a really strong sense of community in Maple Ash.
