First Movie: The Little Mermaid
I wanted to BE a mermaid for the longest time after seeing this movie. I just love it! I would walk around the house and sing Ariel songs. I've had so many Little Mermaid shirts over the years, it is ridiculous. Ironically, my brother's name is Eric. Hmmmm... so, when I used to pretend that I was a mermaid, my prince wasn't named Eric because that it awkward.
First Song: Wherever You Will Go
This was the first song that I fell in love with on the radio. I remember hearing it in my bedroom, so I spent an hour one night, lying on the floor in my overalls recording the radio onto a tape. I would record some and if the song didn't come on, I would rewind and record over it again. I finally got the song on tape. I listened to that tape so many times that I wore it out. (Not that it is hard to wear out a cassette tape that you've recorded over dozens of times.)
First Book: The BFG
My second grade teacher read this book to my class and I loved it. I figured out what "BFG" meant before he even said it. It is definitely one of the most read books on my bookshelf. It's actually falling apart a little.
First Person: Hank
He was my first kiss. He cornered me in second grade and we "made-out" behind the trash can. One of the girls in my class saw us and got the teacher. We were taken to the guidance counselor's office and our parents were called. Hank and I were both given stern warnings. (He apparently kissed all the girls in my grade.) Hank got expelled. That was pretty harsh and a little too drastic for an innocent kiss. I guess they wanted to stomp on it like a bug??
Thanks for visiting!
