"We all have people we admire, both people we know personally and "famous" people who have influenced us profoundly.
Who are your top 5 "favorite people"? And not just people you wanna shag (although sometimes that factors in there, too!) but people who have influenced you, made you who you are today, for whom you have utmost and total respect? They can be living or dead. Famous or not. Go!"
1. My mother
2. My father
3. My mother's cousin M. I wanted to be just like her. (I had to have white go-go boots because she had them — it was a '60s thing). She was an independent working woman, a great role model. And she worked in the record business and got me free records.
4. Mr. A, my 9th grade home room teacher who I remained friends with and helped him at the afterschool center where he supervised for a few years until his death when I was a senior in high school.
5. Ms. K, my high school chemistry teacher. From her, I learned to never give up if I didn't understand something.
Of course, no discussion of my favorite people can happen without my mentioning hubby of 20 years and counting, and J, my best friend of 20 years and counting.
