Thanks Alex J Cavanaugh for another excellent blogfest! This time around, you post your first loves--first movie, first song/band, first book, first person. I'm hoping I don't age myself too much with my choices :)
Movie--Die Hard--The first action movie I remember seeing. I can't believe my mom ever let me watch it since I clearly remember her freaking out when she found out I saw Splash at a friend's birthday party. I did see it on tv so there was plenty of dubbing going on. I still love this movie.
Band--New Kids on the Block--Ah, those boys were so cute! And they could sing so high! I remember a few of my friends got to see them perform at the fair the summer they came out, I was so jealous! Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...Oh, oh, oh, oh...Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...The right stuff!
Book--Half Magic--I didn't read much as a kid besides Sweet Valley Twins, but this book is one I remember. Four children find a coin and make wishes, but the wishes only come true halfway. Needless to say lots of misadventures happen until they figure out how to wish for twice as much and twice as far as they intend. I read this to my class the first year I taught and they enjoyed it very much too :)
Love--Harlan--Totally cheating on this one and picking my husband :) We've known each other since we were 12, but were never really friends. We had all the same friends, but in 6 years of school together, we never once had the same class so we never clicked. Anyhow, the year after our first year in college, our friend had a party at his house and Harlan was there. We danced. That was all it took :) Almost 17 years later, we're still married (happily most of the time) and have two wonderful kids. He may not have been my first love, but he's certainly my favorite!
What are some of your first loves?
