Jen tagged me with the 10-20-30 meme quite some time ago. So I’m a little behind. Or I have a big behind. Whatever. The point is you have to say what you were doing 10, 20, and 30 years ago.
Let’s see. 10 years ago would have been 1997. Phil and I were on the road (truck driving), having sex in every state. Oh. Did I say that out loud? Anyway, we were planning and saving for me to come off the road so I could get pregnant. Which I did in 1998.
20 years ago…1987. I was a sophomore at Edison Senior High in Lake Station, Indiana. I was dating Matt Sizemore. I think I lost my virginity that year. I know the date, just not quite the year. The date’s easy to remember June 9. That would be 6/9. Yeah, you get it huh? Let’s see what else. My great-grandpa died. I’m pretty sure that was the year my dad had his nervous breakdown and held a crossbow to me saying, “I brought you into this world, I’ll take you out.” I must have moved out of my house that year, too. I probably started smoking then. I know I started drinking then. A lot. But I was attentive enough to make straight A’s, be in the top 1o of my class and get inducted into the National Honor Society. I’m sure there’s more. Stick around, I’m bound to spill some good stories.
30 years ago…1977. Wow. Ok. I was 5 years old. I was in kindergarten playing on the jungle gym that I thought was humongous. That’s about all I can remember from 1977. That was a long time ago.
