This is me.
I think my Dad was hoping for a son. Being the first child, I was bestowed with an unloading of blokey type skills. Dad helped me develop my palate for olives, smelly cheese and red wine. Helped me learn to love the smell of a motor. Taught me how to wee out the window of a moving vehicle (I have to say that I haven't done that since I was 6)!
I got to taste DDT. Got to learn about swarming bees.
Luckily, it wasn't long before my brothers were born and I was handed over to my Mum and could relax and be a girl! I love being a girl, but I still love the smell of a motor.
I love my Dad.
