Me: Straight, male, Buffalo area.
Because I wet the bed, I wore diapers every night through the 4th or 5th grade. One day I wet my pants at school, and as if that wasn't bad enough, a neighbor girl announced that, "everyone knows you wear diapers to bed!" They sure did now. Back then, it was cotton diapers and plastic pants, which puffed out and made you walk funny, leaving little doubt. Then Pampers came out and I wore several on vacation. Soon after my bedwetting went away but I missed the diapers. My aversion to diapers became a secret craving to wear them. The Pampers were perfect to wear under clothes with no laundry issues. Over time, that's just what I did. I had become a DL.
Favorite brand/type: sometimes cloth, sometimes disposables. I haven't tried too many brands. Brand aside, the more like classic disposable diapers they are, the better: plain white plastic outsides that crinkle, padding over the sides, taped sides not briefs. The self-awareness is enjoyable and important to me. I probably belong to the realism crowd where the occasional minor leak or occasional major failure is sometimes allowed to happen.
The other stuff I'm currently between jobs. I like seventies music, design and building things. But I'm great at putting things off.
I suppose one pet hobby is about Big Boy restaurants. Remember the big statue of the fellow in red-checkered overalls holding the double deck hamburger. Originally they were drive ins where you ate in your car but the largely phased out in the 60s. They went by different names like Bob's Big Boy, Frisch's Big Boy, Shoney's Big Boy, and about 25 others in various parts of the US & Canada. They were the coolest place when you were a kid but now most are gone or have left the chain.
There's a cult of collectors of everything from old menus to statues, from matchbooks to Big Boy comic books. One thing I remember but never see or hear about is the balloons offered to kids when your folks paid the bill. They were somewhat unique: The Big Boy character was printed on them and they were curvy, like a snowman with one snowball atop another. I suppose it was represent a narrow waist, contrary to Big Boy's shape. And you got a cardstock base, die cut and printed like a pair of shoes, with a hole in the middle you'd pull the balloon through. You'd stretch it where the shoes joined and you wouldn't have to tie it. And the balloon stood up. Does anyone else remember these balloons?
