I am training somone today, tomorrow and Wednesday. My post today will be short and sweet. Just a quick story and a question.
When I was in elementary school they had a contest at the local radio station. If you heard them play a Michael Jackson song you would call in. The first caller who said "Give me my Michael Jackson picture disc won a Jackson's Victory Tour picture disc (basically a record with their images on them kinda like a CD looks today).
Every day when I got home from school I would turn on the radio then call in and request a Michael Jackson song.
One day I decided to call when I walked in the door. The phone rang and the deejay answered. I said "Can you play a Michael Jackson song?"
He replied "We are playing one right now!"
I felt a bit stupid but ran and turned on the radio and rocked out the Thriller.
I finally won a picture disc and stupidly gave it to my best friend Sheila for her birthday. She was an even bigger fan of MJ than I was. The first time I saw the Thriller video was at her birthday party.
Even though MJ has turned into a serious freak I still love his older music. Anything from the Jackson 5, The Jacksons, Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad. The most recent stuff is utter crap so I don't buy them anymore.
I still have fond memories of crushing on a young MJ wearing a soft lemon yellow sweater from his Thriller album and wishing that I was the girl that he was singing about with Paul McCartney.
What childhood memory never fails to make you laugh?
