Well, rather. Humorously enough, me too...although, at the time the alleged offense was only a few years' prior. ;-) It never was my cuppa (pot--puts me right to SLEEP, so hardly my "party drug of choice" in my wild oats days), thank heavens, so I was able to answer that one quite truthfully. ;-)
They did, however, ask some incredibly intrusive questions about the parentage of some of my relations, vis-a-vis conception dates versus dates of their (presumed) parents' marriages, which I thought was rather irritating. Not to mention, truly ancient history (decades if not several scores earlier). After all...MI; weren't they seeking bastards
