Because I'm a gemini, I don't have any secrets, let alone secret talents. My vibe is less quiet mastery and more me telling you, ad nauseam, what I'm good at. Even if you didn't ask.
However, this week on "I Am The Cute One", Donny horrified me into stunned silence when he shared his. (I won't spoil it for you but let's just say....sometimes things should remain a secret).
This got me to thinking - what secret talents do you have? How did you discover it? And...WHY do you keep it a secret?

(We recapped Miss Congeniality!)
This week on the podcast, we recapped the underrated 1999 thriller, "Teaching Mrs. Tingle." The movie follows a high school history teacher (played flawlessly by recent SAG Award winner Helen Mirren) who won't rest until she ruins the lives of everyone around her and makes sure her students fail - in her class, but also in life.
Naturally, my mind went racing to teachers in my past that seemed to have Tingle-like vendettas against me. It wasn't easy, as I was a five-time citizenship award winner, but there is one instructor that sticks out to me. Mrs. Meyers, my sixth grade English teacher, who found that my love of talking to my peers was her biggest pet peeve. I personally think she was jealous of my charisma and ability to control the class in ways she couldn't, but whatever the reason - I had made an enemy in the form of this middle school teacher. She would move my seat EVERY DAY so that I wasn't sitting near any friends to make an example of me. But I didn't shut up. What can I say? I love a challenge, and well-behaved gays seldom make history.
Was there a teacher in your past who had it out for you and wasn't pleased by you no matter what you did? Share your stories below and then listen to our "Teaching Mrs. Tingle" episode to hear more details of our villainous educators!
In this week’s episode, we covered Romy & Michele’s High School reunion, and I talked about my HS reunion that was planned by a former classmate turned pornstar. (Truly, a star! She won an award at the porn awards and everything.)
Did you go to your reunion? Was it everything you dreamt of?
If you were living in your own lil Spice World in the early aughts, you know the universal truth of Spice Girls Cosplay: only the luckiest/bossiest gals at the sleepover got to dress up as the Spice Girl they *actually* wanted to be.
(Shout out to all the girls with red hair, you never stood a chance at being anyone other than Ginger)
So, which Spice Girl did you have to dress up as? And, more importantly, which Spice Girl did you *actually* identify as?
For more nonsense, listen to this week's episode of "I Am The Cute One" with Joseph Shepherd! We covered Cruel Intentions and it was....our dirtiest episode yet.
