Friday Five: Saturday Edition!

1. What is your earliest memory?

I have memories of living at my grandmother's place around age 2. My parents had moved in with her for a brief time when they transitioned from renting an apartment to owning a home.

2. What is your most vivid memory?

The FBI raid at my last job sure sticks out. Being questioned by feds is something that's memorable, alright. That also ranks rather highly on the "a funny thing happened at the office today" scale.

3. What do you remember best about the year you turned 10?

I guess I was in the 4th grade that point. I remember taking cello lessons at my school starting that year. I had an awesome teacher who did his best to encourage me. Even though I didn't go much further with music, I still remember playing the cello all these years later.

4. What memory do you wish you could erase forever?

I had a pretty bad breakup many years ago, and things got messy. I could go without remembering some of the things that happened.

5. What do your parents(or other close relatives) remember about you that you have forgotten?

Apparently after we moved into our home when I was 4, I went to play with a neighbor kid. He turned out to be a little psycho, and my parents ran into the back yard to see him holding me down on the ground, trying to shove a stick in my ear. I have no memory of this. Probably a good thing.
