More Firsts

Going with the theme of "first" I thought this would be fun - hopefully I won't live to regret it . . .

1. Who was your FIRST prom date?
Hmmm - Didn't go, it should have been Bob but see # 22 for why I didn't

2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love?
Talk no, but we are "friends" on Facebook

3. What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?
Beer - from my Dad's bottle but just a sip here and there. My first entire alcoholic drink was either home made red wine or tequila - reason I don't know is that my friend Julie and I got into her parents stash and although I know that is what we consumed that night I have no recollection of which came first. I will say that to mix them was NOT a good idea.

4. What was your FIRST job?
Paper route when I was 10- I delivered the Sunday Sun once a week (yup, on Sundays smart*^%)

5. What was your FIRST car?
A blue Ford Escort, hatchback. Had my first kiss in that car

6. Who was the FIRST person to text you today?
No one, I don't get a lot of texts

7. Who is the FIRST person you thought of this morning?
J, cause he is sick and was sleeping ON me when I woke up this morning.

8. Who was your FIRST grade teacher?
Mrs. Williams. She was tough but nice.

9. Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?
1992 to Newfoundland with my parents to see my Dad's family. Haven't been on a plane since.

10. Who was your FIRST best friend and are you still friends with them?
Judy York - lost touch when we both moved a bunch of times. She had a mom who made chocolate chip pancakes and one of those roller piano's where we would sit and "play" songs for hours - "Bye Bye Miss American Pie" over and over and over. We would also make our own perfume and colour it with tissue paper. Her mother must have been a Saint.

11. What was your FIRST sport played?
Baseball in the neighbourhood, was never on an organized team.

12. Where was your FIRST sleep over?
Could have been Judy's house - or Claudia who moved in down the street the year Judy moved the first time and abandoned me (do I sound bitter? lol)

13. Who was the FIRST person you talked to today?
The lady from the Cable company

14. Whose wedding were you in the FIRST time?
My Aunt Rhonda and Uncle Mark's - I was 10 and it was a beautiful wedding.

15. What was the FIRST thing you did this morning?
Groaned and then tried to extricate myself out from under a sick child with a nasty oozing ear

16. What was the FIRST concert you ever went to?
Spin Doctors at Canada's Wonderland (I think)

17. FIRST tattoo or piercing?
Ears when I was around 7. They had already done one ear when I piped in with "when are you starting?"

18. FIRST foreign country you went to?
The U.S. (stop laughing) when I was in first year University I told my friend that I had never been out of Canada so we jumped in the car at 2 o'clock in the morning in the middle of a snow storm and drove to Niagra Falls where he proceeded to ask the Customs Officer where the nearest Denny's was. We pigged out and then went back to school.

19. What was your FIRST run in with the law?
I haven't told many people about this but when I was 15 I went up to Tobermory to stay with my Aunt and Uncle to work for the summer at a motel. All the other summer girls were much older and as a group we "hooked up" with a construction crew of highschool/University guys and we were walking down the side of the highway to go get something to eat. Two of the guys were drinking beer as we went and carrying a cooler between them (soon to find out it was filled with beer too) - a cop came along and the guys all tossed their beer and started to run. Nothing happened except the oldest guy in the bunch was given a ticket. I thought I was so cool and old!

20. When was your FIRST detention?
I think in the seventh grade my teacher gave me a detention when I refused to answer him. He had told me to "shut up" when we were on a school trip so for 3 weeks I did just that. For the record, he "caved" first and apologized to me before I would start talking again. The first time I ever stood up for myself - if only I knew how many times later in life I would have to stand up for not only myself but also my kids.

21. What was the FIRST state you lived in?
Never lived in a state, I'm in Canada - we have provinces and I have always lived in Ontario.

22. Who was the FIRST person to break your heart?

23. Who was your FIRST roommate?
First year University - Katie (pierogi butt) and Kristen (honker) - they were both much older than I was and I had so much to learn. I am sure I was annoying. Looking back though, considering how much older they were at the time, they really should have known better on so many issues.

24. Where did you go on your FIRST limo ride?
Never had one. Sad isn't it?
