First CD I bought:
Yeah, uh huh: cuz that was worth the money.
First vinyl album I bought (before CD’s existed):
Ain’t he cute?
First job: feeding two golden retrievers down the block from us when I was 8. This job resulted in my first savings account, believe it or not. This is why I'm a millionaire today.
First dog we had when I was a kid: a Pekingese Poodle named Fonzie.
We got rid of him pretty quickly cuz he bit me. I didn’t taunt him, I swear. Cuz I was a well-mannered little scamp, dontchyaknow.
First full-length play I performed in:
My character’s name was Bud Frump. The name “Frump” tells you what kind of person he was. It wasn’t typecasting. I think.
First school: Sunset Terrace Elementary in Rochester, Minnesota.
This is where I first sniffed glue.
First time overseas: spent most of my time in Birmingham, England. Cuz, yeah, Birmingham has such a booming tourism industry.
First time I kissed Heather: in Henry Hallgren’s basement while watching this movie:
We necked because this flick is such a romantic movie.
First time I rode on a plane: I was 17.
First job in ministry: part time youth pastor at Evangel Baptist Church in Wheaton, Illinois.
I wore a tie and pretended to be sophisticated.
First car I owned: an old station wagon. I bought it for $1 from my pastor in Minnesota. I’m not sure I didn’t get ripped off.
The first time I ate sushi, I was hooked.
The first time I left my family, I flew from Toronto to London, England.
The first time I saw Two Towers, I had nightmares that night about Orcs chasing me.
The first time I was ever in the hospital was to have my gall bladder removed.
The first time I saw a positive sign on a pregnancy test was 30 months after we started trying to get pregnant.
The first dog I ever “owned” was a Pekinese puppy named Pal that my parents gave me for my 1st birthday.
The first time I slept in a water-bed, I knew I wanted one.
The first time I tried Dr. Pepper was in a motor home we were driving from Florida to Michigan one furlough. I had a sip of my Dad’s and the rest is history.
The first car I ever drove was a Subaru station wagon.
The first car Troy and I owned was a behemoth electric blue station with a saggy driver’s seat. We called her Sally.
The first boy I really kissed was Troy. (He’s the last, too)
The first time I rode a horse was on a ranch in Western Canada where my Dad used to work.
The first movie I ever saw in a theater was Sound of Music. My parents snuck us out of my grandparents’ apartment in Toronto because they didn’t approve of going to the movies.
