The Twilight Zone

Um, this is a little weird. I read Defamer pretty much everyday. A recent post contained a cryptic line about a blog by two reality show contestants. That's a whole bunch of my favorite things right there so I clicked on the link. One half of the blog belongs to Victoria Fuller, a contestant on The Amazing Race. I knew Victoria Fuller as Vickie Silva. She was my oldest cousin's girlfriend and my babysitter when I was nine.

When I was in college, my aunt sent me a letter telling me that my former babysitter was now a Playboy centerfold. I was the envy of all my male friends, particularly when I bought the issue of Playboy and showed them the pics of my babysitter. That pic is not from her spread in the magazine. Strangely enough, I came across those Playboy pics on the web a couple weeks ago when I was looking at free porn. I think I found them through this site. (Don't click at work! Don't click if you don't want to see a coochie!)

Her official bio on the Playboy web site makes no mention of her punk rock phase. When I knew Vickie, she had a shaved head with a bleached fringe of bangs. She wore safety pins through her ears and tights under her cutoffs. Anyway, I thought this was going to be a more interesting story, but this is actually the end of it.

I don't want to be mean or anything since Victoria is apparently being abused by her husband, but that girl ain't no 32 years old. That would mean she was 11 when she babysat me at the age of 9. My mom was single, but she wasn't THAT desperate for a sitter.

Vickie was a good babysitter. We had fun with her. She handled a bee sting crisis very well (we were jump roping on the sidewalk and I stepped on a bee) and we tried to bake cookies once. We ran out of flour though so we went down to the homeschool kids' house and borrowed some flour from them. I do not recommend whole wheat flour for use in making sugar cookies.

I emailed her yesterday when I came across the blog. She was very gracious in her reply and spoke well of my family.
