It’s Elementary, my dear

Sunday Social
1. What was your first car?
1988 Toyota Corolla.  Granny’s grocery cart, bought at an auction, it only had 50000 miles on it when I got it in 1993. 
2. Who was your favorite childhood teacher?
Ms. McCreary.  She loved us so much she moved from first to third grade so she could keep teaching us! 
3. Were you involved in any sports/extracurricular activities? Share pictures if you can!
I used to swim.  I loved it.  Sucked at it, but loved it.  Still do.
4. What was your favorite birthday party?
When I turned 10 I was in 5th grade.  I had my first (and only) slumber party.  Ten girls all got to spend the night at my house.  It was awesome.
5. Who was your teen celebrity crush?
I don’t think I ever was the kind of girl to poster her walls with copies of Teen Beat or anything like that, instead I followed music.  I was obsessed with the early sixties rock groups, the Beatles, and yes I admit it, Duran Duran.
6. What show/movie did your parents not allow you to watch?
Sixteen Candles.  My mom’s then-boyfriend came in during the opening credits scene when there are two kids walking into school with their hands in each others back pockets.  He went and told my mom that I was watching porn.  Never was allowed to watch that movie in their house….

    • Remember in high school when you had to keep a journal in English class about topics the teacher assigned? Remember reading the Devil and Daniel Webster by Stephen Vincent Benét? We had to write about what the devil might look like if he came back to see us. I put a photo of the no-longer-then-boyfriend in there. Kinda funny, actually. There’s nothing wrong with him as a human being, nice enough guy, just a wet dishrag of a personality that loved to run and tattle to my mom about our behavior thinking it earned him brownie points. Nothing could have been farther from the truth . . . .
