I can’t believe I used to…

…watch soap operas

…make only $4.25 per hour

…walk around barefoot exclusively – even outside and in the winter

…play after school sports

…pay only $0.99 per gallon for gas

…wear white leather knee-high boots and bright pink lipstick

…attend a high school where a girl was murdered by the janitor

…support two people on one income of $11 per hour

…wear my cousin’s “Porn Star” shirt

…have a social event scheduled for every night of the week

…attend church and Bible Study and Youth Group

…date a guy who is now in jail

…eat Campbell’s “Cream Of …” soups with water

…write poetry

…think I wouldn’t like living in the city

…sleep in until noon on Saturdays and Sundays

…dislike wine

…think that Jack wasn’t a lot like me

…believe that there is no such thing as soul mates

  1. Was that my porn star shirt? I used have a couple, especially the “porn* in training” ones..

    • Nope, not your shirt. Didn’t you move by then??

      • Yea, but I came back sometimes… I don’t know, Childhood to now is all a blur. Did the girl that got murdered go to either of our elementaries?

        • I don’t think so? I don’t know. I never met her – I just remember that I was freaked out because I had stayed around after school that day to meet up with some friends.
