36. Have you ever had to wear a uniform to work?
When I worked for Van Heusen Direct, we ended up with a Gap-style "uniform" with a twist: khaki, tan, navy twill pants with a white button down Oxford dress shirt and (here's the twist) a necktie. For a while we girls even had to wear neckties, but that didn't last long. (Thank God because we hated it!) One day an older couple came into the store when the other assistance manager, Jamie, and I were working. The gentleman started getting all upset and huffy, and mumbled something to the effect of, "I'm not shopping in a store that hires those kind of people!" They were about to leave, and he was still ranting, when we stopped them, and asked what was wrong. Without coming out and actually saying it, he implied strongly that he didn't approve of "our kind" and refused to shop here because of us. He made an additonal comment about how Van Heusen used to be such a nice place, or something like that, and we finally figured it out: this guy thought Jamie and I were lesbians because we were wearing neckties!!! He didn't want to shop in a store that hired homosexuals! We quickly corrected him, and told him it was the company's dress code; we were forced to dress this way, and we really didn't like it any more than he did. He was totally outraged and appalled by this news, and we cheerfully gave him the toll-free customer service number so he could complain to the company. Heh. I don't know if it was that incident in particular, or what, but about a month later, we girls were allowed to wear scarves instead of ties. Yay! We won!

37. Last thing you bought at a pharmacy?
Carefree Lightdays pantyliners, the long ones with the full coverage, and stay-dri lining. Now aren't you glad you asked?

38. Ever throw up in public?
Not that I remember or anything, but I probably puked in public when I was a kid.

I'd rather be a millionaire; I've had true love, baby, and it doesn't pay the bills.

40. Do you believe in love at first sight?
