Sunshine News

From about age 12-15, I printed a monthly newsletter to all of my relatives keeping them up to date with my (and my family's) life. It wasn't just news.... it had coupons (which were usually scams) and corny one-liners. This week I started researching me (and writing down interesting stories from my life) because I would like to write memoirs ala David Sedaris or Steve Almond. Here are some interesting quotes from my former newspaper:

  • "The last couple days he [Steve] did some pretty good sailing. The only bad part was when the rope broke, our sail came undone and we tipped." 6/1993.
  • "He [Steve] has to brush for 3 min, 4 times a day, floss the front 12 teeth and brace, and use fluoride EVERY night." 6/1993
  • "Steve got about 105 pieces of candy for Halloween, some of which were: Snickers, M&Ms, Mints, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Starbursts..." 11/1992
  • "The 1st graders and their stuff all seemed so small. There were many parents there (and lots of cookies)." 12/1993
