Last week, at Jocelyn's request, I posted the story of my beginnings with Mr. Jazz . In the comments, Ian noted that it would be fun to ask for people's stories. We did and as promised I've linked to them below. If you posted and I forgot you, please let me know and I'll add a link to your story.
You'll find BB's story here
Ian's is here
Here is Jeaux's
Pouty Lips wrote about it here
Geewits did it a while back, years actually, this is hers
And here is Birdies story, via Jeaux
And Birdie just pointed out that Big Island Jeep Guy also played. How cool, I didn't even know this blog existed until now...
A couple were posted directly in the comments:
Expat from Hell
Standing in the middle of the gymnasium floor, a mutual friend introduces me to a girl from Texas (a novelty in Southern California). "What do you have there?", he asks. "Waah, theez are maah tennis shoooz", she replies in that drawn out Southern slang. I was smitten on the spot - forever. I remain so 35 years later.
I discovered he was married. That was a helluva turn-off. Never been quite that turned off in my whole, entire life, really.
