Space Ace…

Star Child was okay

But my favorite member

of KISS? Ace Frehley.

 RW Haiku Challenge #82

True story. For the challenge this week, we had to use the words "star" and "child" which prompted an immediate memory of KISS and my younger days when we would all try to mimic the make-up and what not. My younger brother was always Paul Stanley (Star Child) and our friend Kirk, who really did play the drums (and still does) was Peter Criss (Cat Man). I wasn't much into Gene (he freaked me out a lot), so... Space Ace it was. Ahh, those were the days...

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.

      1. There was a band that used to play locally of a lot of touring musicians that would do covers for fun and they would have special guest stars and Ace was there one night. The show ended and this woman that was the spitting image of Bobby Fleckman came over to my sister and I and asked us if we would like to accompany Ace back to his hotel room. Highlights of the night include him telling us about 20 different times that Paul Stanley was gay and then laughing like a 3 year old. Also, he was summoned into the bathroom at least once an hour, presumably to well…let’s just say they must have been preparing something for him there. He also played 2000 Light Years From Home for us on guitar and then we all ended up passed out on his bed.
