FLASHBACK FRIDAY, #2


It's time for our second Flashback Friday!

When was your first date?
IN 6TH GRADE, I WENT TO A BAPTIST CHURCH VALENTINE'S BANQUET WITH 'TIM' FROM MY CLASS AT SCHOOL.

How old were you?
I WAS TWELVE..AND HIS PARENTS WERE AT THE TABLE WITH US.

What did you do/where did you go?
HE AND HIS PARENTS PICKED ME UP AT OUR HOUSE AND WE DROVE STRAIGHT TO THE CHURCH FOR A SPECIAL DINNER AND SOME 'SINGING' ENTERTAINMENT...I GOT A FLOWER AND SOME CANDY FROM HIM....SO, SWEET!

Did anything memorable happen - either good or embarrassing?
BEING AN INCH TALLER THAN HIM, MY BIG THING WAS TO MAKE SURE MY SHOES DIDN'T MAKE ME ANY TALLER. HE WAS BRUNETTE, HAD DARK BROWN EYES AND A HUGE SMILE, DONNY-OSMOND LIKE.

If it was your first date ever, did you continue to date that person?
If so, how long?
DATING WASN'T IN MY 12-YO VOCABULARY...WE WERE REALLY GOOD FRIENDS THAT MADE EACH OTHER LAUGH WHILE ENJOYING BEING TOGETHER.

If it was the person you married, did you know he/she was "the one" or did it take a longer for love to bloom?
NOT APPLICABLE

Any other memories you wish to share about those wonderfully awkward first dates?!
AT MY FIRST REAL DANCE, MY DATE AND I WERE IN 8TH GRADE, WE WERE TRUMPET BUDDIES IN THE MARCHING BAND. HE ASKED ME TO THE "8TH GRADE DANCE" IN THE SCHOOL'S GYM...(HEY, THERE WAS A DISCO BALL SPINNING, SO THAT MADE IT 'LEGIT')...AS THE KIDS WOULD SAY TODAY. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN 'AWKWARD' WITH ANYONE OTHER THAN HIM, BUT WE GOT ALONG GREAT AND ALWAYS HAD FUN TOGETHER.

IT WAS CASUAL WITH BLUE JEANS AND TENNIS SHOES...BUT GREAT MUSIC.
MY FAVORITE DANCE: TO A DJ'S RECORDING OF 'COLOUR MY WORLD'.

HE WALKED ME HOME FROM SCHOOL MANY DAYS FOLLOWING...THEN OUR LIVES STARTED CHANGING WITH NEW DECISIONS AND DIFFERENT PATHS...BUT, OUR FRIENDSHIP STILL REMAINS AND WE TALK ON FB.

COME JOIN IN WITH US...JUST CLICK ON THE FLASHBACK PIC :)

6th grade is pretty early for that kind of thing! Sounds like some fun memories.

Fun memories.

And you were first last week, too - you just weren't around to enjoy it! LOL

I'm having fun reading these, but don't know if I can bring myself to getting my first date memory down on the blog. Probably not.

Oh well.

That was then, this is now- thank goodness!
