I'm joining this blog party. The questions change every week and it's fun and easy. I'm a little late in getting to it, but it is still technically Friday, so I'm giving it a try :-)
1. What was the first car you owned?
It was a turquoise blue 1965 Chevy Corvair. Yep, that's right, the car Ralph Nader wrote a book about it in"Unsafe at Any Speed" if you're old enough to remember that :-) I loved this little car though. It was so fun to have guys want to look at the engine, and open up the hood, only to find that it was actually the trunk. The engine was in the back, just like a VW. This isn't mine, but it's exactly what mine looked like. I wish I still had it. I guess most people feel that way about their first car.
2. What song are you embarrassed to know the lyrics to?
I played keyboard and sang in a little band when I was younger, so there are alot, but right now "She's a Brick House" comes to mind.
3. Have you ever had stitches?
Several times. My first experience with stitches was when I got my wisdom teeth out. I passed out when they took the stitches out. Clip, clip, and I'm waking up to smelling salts. I'm such a lightweight when it comes to that type of thing. No one would have thought I'd ever give birth to 6 kids.
4. What was your first job?
Besides babysitting, my first job was passing out flyers for a real estate agent when I was 13. My friend and I thought we needed a job so we visited a local agency and he paid us to do this. I'd forgotten all about that. I usually say that my first job was working at Pup N Taco :-)
5. Who is your favorite Sesame Street character?
It would have to be Oscar the Grouch, because I played him in a parade in high school. It was not fun walking around carrying a trash can, and no one thought to make a cardboard one and decorate it so I carried the real thing, metal and all, strapped to my shoulders with the bottom cut out. Boy, was I sore by the end of that parade :-)
