Friday Five-ish

-sigh- I can’t not do this anymore. I am sucked into the meme.

1. What was your first job?

I was 15; I worked at the local Jitney Jungle. [Only Mississippians are even going to know what the hell a Jitney Jungle is. It’s a grocery store.] Within about three weeks, I was the best “courtesy clerk”–read, bag boy–our store had. I enjoyed the job for a while, until management changed, because evidently the new guy didn’t like smart boys working for him. I guess he felt you had to be an idiot to work under him; maybe he was intimidated?

2. How old were you when you had your first kiss?

No comment. 🙂

3. What was your first car?

A 1982 Dodge Aries K car. Tan, with a white final top [which made no sense, as it was a hard top]. The back window had a leak, and the back seat was mildewed when I got it. It was my late grandfather’s “around town” car. When he died in 1990, it passed to Doug. Doug drove it for a year or so, until he got his little Geo Prizm. [Remember that POS, Doug?] Then it sat under a tree for two years, mildewing, until I hit 15, Mississippi’s legal driving age.

I think my parents helped mildew the back seat. It’s not like I was going there with anyone that lived in Forest, but still.

4. What was your first concert?

Wow. I can’t think of what it would be, mainly because I was in a lot of performances as a kid for choir, and it’s all a blur. In college, a Jars of Clay concert in Nashville. /me waves to Heather and Jess and that PlasticCar I hit with Jess’s Buick

5. How do you plan to spend your weekend?

Unfortunately, my free time will be spent studying, doing laundry, and cleaning up around the apartment. However, I have dinner tonight with our customer from work [they invited us], a church event tomorrow, and then church half of Sunday.

Most people get lives on the weekends. Me, my life stays about as busy as normal.

  1. Not totally. The guy who owns it [his name escapes me, but I know where he lives in Jackson] is from Mississippi.

    I think they bought Delchamps or vice versa. But JJ’s are mostly in MS, with a few down near Mobile and some over in LA.
