I Used To Be A Person, Too
I used to be a person, too. Just like all of you!
I remember when I was a bit (ok a lot) younger, I used to have a lot of fun things to do. And some great friends to do it with.
In High School I was a majorette, which was really fun. Even though I wasn’t one of the “in crowd” and all of the majorettes weren’t all that nice to me. But some were and I really enjoyed it. For once in my life I had found something I was good at. I had some great friends back then, too.
Skipping up to my 20′s, I moved to a little bit bigger city than where I had grown up. I had a job and an apartment and a baby. I went to work every day in a really nice office building. I was a secretary for a nice man, who had just started a business. So I ran the office and I got pretty good at it. Ireally liked that job. Back then, we used typewriters and I got really fast at typing.
I had great friends back then. We went to clubs, dancing, almost every week end.
I never drank, just always had a coke. I never did like beer or liquor. But I loved going out dancing. The music was my favorite and boy was it loud! I swear that’s why I have this horrible ringing in my ears now. If it’s too quiet it keeps me awake at night. So I have to have a fan on.
My friends and I went to a LOT of concerts back then. I saw so many bands, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, The Bee Gees, Super Tramp and a lot more. Every time there was a concert close by, we went. Of course then it was like $10 to get in. I remember one time, we were going to one two hours away and my car wasn’t running too well. Every time we had to stop and shut the engine off, I had to get under the hood and start it with a screw driver. But it was ok, we made it there and back. I wouldn’t do that now, for anything!
What I mean by, I used to be a person, is that now I only do things for everyone else. READ MORE
