I remember ...
I remember the faint smell of something burning when I got my (very successful) Lasik surgery on my eyes in 1997.
I remember flavoring the home-popped popcorn with Kraft's Grated Parmesan Cheese and loving it at first but getting tired of it after several minutes.
I remember being very surprised and slightly nervous when a very handsome and popular boy walked across the room at an intermediate school school dance and asked me to dance with him.
I remember how quickly smelling salts brought me back to consciousness when I was on the verge of passing out on the cot in the nurse's office in elementary school.
I remember feeling bad and left-behind when my friend Marilyn began to get better grades in math than I did in fourth grade.
I remember crying and running out of the kitchen away from the dinner table when my father flippantly commented that my cooking wasn't so good. This was in my high school years.
I remember how a tough spark plug of a girl challenged me to a fight in intermediate school. She didn't even know me and we had no classes together.
I remember how sick I felt when I had my first taste of liver at the high school cafeteria.
I remember sewing about five or seven new dresses during final exam week at U.C.L.A. because I couldn't take the stress of studying any longer.
I remember how beautiful I thought Sandra Roman was in tenth grade in Hawaii.
I remember being in a sociology class in college when they announced on the P.A. system that John F. Kennedy had died from gunshot wounds in Dallas, Texas.
I remember my mother disciplining me when I was in intermediate school with hard whacks to the shoulders and back using wooden hangers.
I remember my father carrying me on his shoulders as he waded into San Souci Beach in Hawaii.
I remember making chocolate fudge from scratch when I was in 4th grade.
I remember sharing the fudge with my friend Marilyn in 4th grade.
I remember how my husband always listened as though I were telling him the most important thing.
I'd really like to know what you remember.
