I have been tagged by Tattooed Atheist, who has an excellent blog called "Aye" (see links). Here is what I am required to do:
Post my earliest memory that is:
#1 Clear enough to include three details.
#2 Give my age.
#3 Pass it along to some other folks.
Well, first of all I'm 50 years old. One of my earliest memories is from when I was about three years old. My parents were still in bed, and I was up puttering around the house. I remember knowing I needed to be quiet so I wouldn't wake them. They used to give me Black Jack chewing gum when I was a little guy. I was in the bathroom, standing on the toilet, looking around in the medicine cabinet and found some things that looked like sticks of chewing gum, but they weren't the right size. They were wrapped in paper, but were firmer and smaller than sticks of gum. Turns out later when I asked my mom about them, she told me they were razor blades! Fun, fun, fun. The ones in the picture above are much older than the ones Dad had in the medicine cabinet, but you get the idea... small, colorful packages full of deadly, sharp little goodies.
I am going to pass this along to J.Marquis of "Major Conflict"! Hehehe
