Where was I when....

The "Big One" was supposed to happen: AT HOME, didn't go to school that day
Heard about the Oklahoma City Bombing: At my dad's house
When the Tsunami hit in 2004: Celebrating Christmas
Heard that the 12 minors were dead: In my computer room
When Hurricane Katrina was knocking on the door of the coast: At my uncle's funeral
When Dave proposed to me: In our bedroom, not doing what you are thinking.
When Jason proposed to Chrissy: at a Dixie Chicks concert with Jennifer
Heard about Bryan dying in a plane crash: at James and Madeline's house
Got my first kiss: In Chrissy's backyard, April 3, 1992, with a fellow c/o 97 alumni
Got robbed by a dumbass: at Walgreens in Lakeland, TN


There are obviously many more events that have happened in my lifetime. These are just the ones that I can think of remembering where I was when they happened. Some of the memories can bring a tear to my eye just thinking about it. I sometimes think of the stories we will get to tell our children and grandchildren. I love it when I hear stories like that. Sometimes though, I get a little freaked out reading about these events in history books. History? That word sounds so old.

    Ah, it's great to remember. Maybe we should write down some of those good ones.
