Friday Five (5 March)

What was...

1. ...your first grade teacher's name?

Mrs. McLaughlin. I'm not sure of the spelling. I have a clear memory of the first day and isolated events from that year, which is rather impressive considering it was 27 years ago. One of my strongest impressions was of a near-unbearable cacophony of voices; there can't have been more than 20-30 children and two adults in the room.

2. ...your favorite Saturday morning cartoon?

Not really applicable; I wasn't much of a TV watcher even as a child.

3. ...the name of your very first best friend?

Jason Roberts. I lived at no.2, he was at no.8, and we were at primary school together. I went to live in Norway for a year at the age of 7-8; on my return, I no longer fitted into the social network of local children, and my friendship with Jason didn't really survive. We went to different secondary schools, and at some point his family moved to another house (still within the village, but I didn't see him around any more). My last memory of Jason is of an overweight 17 year-old, not particularly a thug but a hanger-on of thugs.

4. ...your favorite breakfast cereal?

I don't remember having a consistent favourite. Rice Crispies (with a 'C'; 'Rice Krispies' is the US name), Frosties and Weetabix were okay. Coco Pops were a rare treat.

5. ...your favorite thing to do after school?

In the context of the other questions, I presume this means while I was at primary school. I don't have a clue what I did with the evenings of school days at that age.
