TMI: I'm falling for you

I showed my eldest daughter the drawing of me which my besotted student had drawn.   She's a graduate of my high school and in fact, had been my student in grade 10.  So she was well aware of the student crushes that some of the young men at our school had on me. 

Buddy Bear:  "Doesn't this drawing look like me?"
Daughter:  "Well, some parts of it look like you.  But if you didn't tell me it was you, I wouldn't have known it.  Where did you get it?"
Buddy Bear:  A student drew it.  He's the newest member of my "Fan Club!"
Daughter:  "That's STILL going on?  Your students are so WEIRD!!!  I can't figure out why so many of them get infatuated with you!"  
Buddy Bear:   "It's a mystery.... you'd have to ask them, I guess!"* 

*I didn't have the courage to tell her that all the my Fan Club students are gay and they think I'm hot.

Too much information is a regular feature by Sean of Just a Jeep Guy. Thanks, Sean!

1. How does Fall rank on your list of favorite seasons? I love all the seasons but Fall ranks high on my list.  I love our crisp, blue skies, cooler temperatures and the freshness in the air with the summer humidity gone.  Also, all the annoying biting insects (blackflies, mosquitoes, sandflies, ticks and horseflies) are gone.

2. What are your favorite fall fashions? I'm not big on fashion but I like getting cozy in a nice warm sweater.

3. What are your favorite fall foods?  I love all things pumpkin:  pie, muffins, breads and soups. I always grow pumpkins and cook our Hallowe'en jack-o-lanterns. The picture at right shows delicious pumpkin muffins made by my daughter with a pumpkin seed / streusel topping. 

4. Have you ever FALLEN and couldn't get up?  Not yet.  But my best friend who I've known since childhood recently had a motorcycle accident and couldn't get up because of a broken pelvis and hip.  He now has an artificial hip. Yikes! We're getting old!

5. Fall is the start of the new TV season, which show are you most anticipating?  None of them!  I haven't watched conventional TV in many, many years. But I sometimes enjoy watching an episode of the Amazing Race online.

6. What fall activities like apple picking, hiking, foliage trips, do you enjoy or plan on doing? When the kids were younger, we went on countless trips to farms for Pumpkin Fests or hay rides.  But that's best done with young children and anyway, it would be pretty lame going by myself.

I like to go on wilderness hikes in the fall, usually to some mountain top with a spectacular view.  Now, the kids are busy with school, jobs, friends or are out of town and I usually end up hiking by myself.  I haven't yet found hiking buddy to go with.  

7. Halloween is an excuse for young, hot gay guys with perfect bodies to wear "costumes" to clubs consisting of Speedos, jockstraps and little else.  That is, if all those online pictures are to be believed.   If I had the body which I had in my 20s (and didn't appreciate) and the self-confidence and gay sexual skills that I have right now, I'd be doing the same thing. 

8. Do you dress up for Halloween? I occasionally wear an elaborate costume at school such as a caveman or warlock ... when I have the time and energy to put something together.  But I've never attended a night-time Halloween party in a bar or club.

9. Do you have daylight savings time where you live? Yes. But this far north, it means that it gets dark at around 4:30 pm.  :-(

10. Thanksgiving is not as big a hoopla here in Canada as it is in the USA. 

11. What's your favorite Thanksgiving food? My mother's turkey stuffing and gravy.  I much prefer it to the turkey itself.

BONUS 
Do you FALL asleep after sex?  Yes!  I look forward to having sex with my special guy and falling asleep cuddled together.  One day!

Have you FALLEN out of bed while having sex?  No.

    1. Thanks! But my daughter wouldn't have said that! She was in class for several years with boys who had crushes on me; she knows very well what it was like.

    2. Oh, I was just kidding! But it must be weird for her to realize her dad is a "sex symbol" to girls OR guys her age (or near it now that she's older)!

    3. She’s 21, so all these besotted school boys are much younger than her, actually. I’m not sure what she thinks of it all!

      And, interestingly, all the student crushes in the past 15 or more years have been boys, never girls.

  4. 1. How does Fall rank on your list of favorite seasons?
    My absolute favorite. Followed by Spring, Winter and Summer (I despise heat and humidity -- only gardening makes summer possible for me) in that order.

    2. What are your favorite fall fashions?
    Comfortable chinos, one of my many T-shirts with Tlingit and Inuit native designs embroidered onto them, and an interestingly designed cotton sweater for cool days.

    3. What are your favorite fall foods? Apple pies, tea breads made with our own maple syrup, baked salmon with Salish rub, Fritz's spice cake. Pinot Grigio!going for

    4. Have you ever FALLEN and couldn't get up?
    No.

    5. Fall is the start of the new TV season, which show are you most anticipating?
    The new season of Big Bang Theory; Some of the PBS English Mysteries. We watched the premiere of The Goldbergs the other night and it was dreadful -- people screaming at each other and trading insults. Trophy Wife was another non-starter for us.

    6. What fall activities like apple picking, hiking, foliage trips, do you enjoy or plan on doing?
    We're actually going for peaches at local farms -- we grow our own apples. We also like taking down dead hardwoods and cutting and splitting them for firewood. Our friends come over to help -- who knew how many gay men have chainsaws and love using them?

    7. Halloween is
    Being ruined by turning October into Halloween Month here. I call it Holiday creep; the marketing for Halloween began in early September this year. I think it dilutes the meaning of the holiday.

    8. Do you dress up for Halloween?
    No. There aren't really any opportunities where we live. The people we know don't give Halloween parties and we are WAY too old for trick or treating. Of course, if we lived in a gay section of Boston . . . .

    9. Do you have daylight savings time where you live?
    Yes. and I wish they'd extend it to all year.

    10. Thanksgiving is not as big a hoopla here in Canada as it is in the USA.
    Actually, Thanksgiving hasn't been commercialized here. Yet. I like it because I love cooking and having people in for Thanksgiving Dinner.

    11. What's your favorite Thanksgiving food?
    Fritz's maple syrup and walnut pie. Also creamed white onions and home-made cranberry sauce (not jelly).

    BONUS
    Do you FALL asleep after sex? No, sex gets me going, I feel great and energized.

    Have you FALLEN out of bed while having sex?
    Sort of--I was in a motel and two friends came over for sex. We pushed the twin beds together and went at it. The beds began to head for opposite walls and I wound up on the floor between them. Resourceful lads, we just picked up where we had left off.

  5. Thanks, Will, for sharing. I loved your answers! My comments:
    -I love the sound of all that maple syrup, especially home-grown
    -I also like the BBTheory and the BBC mysteries, but I get them as boxed DVD sets of past seasons from our local library
    -I loved the story about you hitting the floor between the separating beds. LOL! I’m so glad that you got back on that horse, so to speak, and continued.

  6. I'm surprised you didn't respond to your daughter as such: "What, you never has a crush on a teacher?" LOL!

    My #1 season is summer, of course - for the nude sunbathing and skinny-dipping. Don't have any holiday that trips my trigger. Used to love them as a kid - because the extended family would all gather. We've all spread out over the country now...
