39 62.0958When you got home, what kind of games did they play?64.4901 
40DCA_se1_ag3_f_0267.2538Oh at home, usually it was just putting puzzles together, trying to read- you know, and see who could read the best73.9626
42 74.5687out of the three children.75.7446 
43DCA_int_0176.4457How about outside?77.4770
46 82.5037football83.1444 
48 83.2433[<laugh>] Yes.86.1753 
49DCA_int_0184.5277[Girls too?]85.2823
50 86.2916Hm.86.5714
51DCA_se1_ag3_f_0286.8945It was- it was87.9541
53 88.1836you know,88.6395 
55 88.8061inspiring to try to beat the boys playing.90.9504 
58 91.8206Did you ever do it?93.1600 
59DCA_se1_ag3_f_0293.2575Sure, I loved it.94.0687
62 96.4040How about uh,97.3598 
64 99.0757uh, did you ever play that game where one kid101.3992 
66 102.2230has to hide his eyes while everyone else hides?104.5961 
68 104.7407/Being chased/.105.3475 
69DCA_se1_ag3_f_02105.4607<ts> Hide and Seek.106.7655
70DCA_int_01107.0068Yeah, how does that work?108.3808
71DCA_se1_ag3_f_02109.1291Oh, I didn't play that until I was about-111.2043
73 111.9518I guess about ten years old113.9043 
75 114.5394because the boys were so rough, you know.116.6735 
77 117.1892And every time the girls would try to hide, usually one of the girls would get hurt, so we just never did bother to play it.122.6152 
79DCA_se1_ag3_f_02123.7746[Til I] was about ten years old, but it was a pretty interesting game126.7842
81 127.6694[/unintelligible/]128.5372
82DCA_se1_ag3_f_02127.8329[cause the] majority of 'em wanted to cheat. [<laugh>]131.4486
84 132.2465How did it work at ten years old?133.9758
85DCA_se1_ag3_f_02134.5228Well, normally they would just give you a small137.7385
87 138.4837hiding range, you know, where you could hide, but you couldn't hide but so far away from143.2557 
89 143.7045what they call, home base.145.1131 
91 145.8551And normally you had two or three that would cheat,148.0427 
93 148.3139but-148.6294 
94DCA_int_01149.7940By hiding farther out?150.9887
95DCA_se1_ag3_f_02150.9825Right, farther out and then that would cause him not to get caught because they would be looking for him in the closer place, and while they was looking for him in a closer place, then normally they would get back.160.1736
98 162.2959Well,163.0002 
100 163.2643how did it work? I mean, how did they-165.0620 
102 166.1781how did uh, you win or lose or?168.5260 
104 170.2333In other words, just sort of describe how the-172.3359 
106 172.6535how the game was played.173.9772 
108 174.8292Pretend like I'm a foreigner just got off the boat, and I never heard of it. [<laugh>]178.7178 
109DCA_se1_ag3_f_02178.2745[Uh-huh. (whispered)]178.6895
110 179.3875Well you take the-180.8550
112 181.2009Well some children, they count from one to ten and some count185.0391 
114 185.9886from five to a hundred, you know, in- in the consecutive five numbers.190.3582 
116 191.1977And191.8359 
118 192.1244you have from five to hundred or from one to ten to hide.196.0609 
120 196.6889And if you are caught198.2547 
122 198.9747still trying to find a place to hide, then you automatically out,202.7155 
124 203.2028but if you get a chance to hide-204.9062 
126 205.1766If they see you before you get back to home base,207.6856 
128 208.1376they'll call your name and say that you are out.210.2913 
130 210.8478But if you're still left out at the end,213.1316 
132 213.3010and they can't find you,214.5226 
134 214.8527then you win, but all those that are out, they have to come and stay until the rest are found.219.6059 
135DCA_int_01219.6750I see.220.3911
137 221.4507How about the kid that has to go looking?223.3120 
139 223.4975What was he called?224.6474 
141 225.1191Is there a name for that?226.3076 
142DCA_se1_ag3_f_02228.6241It's just the caller.229.8723
145 231.4223How about um,232.3648 
147 232.5346the first time, when you first start playing, how do you pick the guy that has to go look?236.7438 
149 236.9419Go looking.237.6305 
150DCA_se1_ag3_f_02240.1709Normally, you just get together, and whoever decides they want to do it, does.244.2418
151DCA_int_01245.1908Did you ever have a problem of nobody wants to do it?247.2060
155 249.8557Did you ever use rhymes?251.1291 
157 253.3198Like uh,254.1435 
159 255.0805like your son Raymond, for example, knows some like Tarzan was in a tree.259.2331 
161 261.2289/unintelligible/262.2570 
163 262.8167Or? [Engine, Engine.]264.1812 
164DCA_se1_ag3_f_02263.4675[Or just- just] more or less just baby rhymes.266.4159

167DCA_int_01270.9427Yeah, those are-271.7728
169 272.2978those are interesting because no one-274.0578

452DCA_se1_ag3_f_02672.4387/RD-NAME-2/ [I believe.]674.5099
453DCA_int_01673.9428[I meant the dog.]674.6996
454DCA_se1_ag3_f_02675.1324Uh, what did we call him?676.3398
456 678.4299Called him-679.1404 
458 681.4695<ts> Oh I don't even remember what we called him.683.7741 
460 684.6545Uh,685.0915 
462 687.0653there was a friend of ours that lived out on U Street. She had came around here690.8500 
464 691.6392and we were calling him Blackie.693.6546 
466 694.4147And she had695.6724 
468 695.9899a dog once, and she had a name for her dog.699.0767 
470 699.6709So she told us what her dog's name was, and I don't even remember,703.5312 
472 704.3518but uh, we started calling the dog by the name that she had for her dog, so709.0704 
474 709.4791the dog responded to that name,711.2422 
476 711.4528you know much better712.2829 
478 712.6602than he did Blackie, so714.1811 
480 714.5239we kept the name for her, you know, until she got killed.717.4794 
483 718.2961When did you get this one you have now?720.0474 
484DCA_se1_ag3_f_02722.6122Last month.723.5617
487 724.9860Was it already-725.9607 
489 726.4913It's already grown /in a couple months/?728.0131 
490DCA_se1_ag3_f_02728.1954R- Uh-728.8463
492 729.1858When we got her, yeah, she was about730.7131 
494 730.8829the same size731.8702 
496 732.2223that she is right now.733.3636 
497DCA_int_01734.6016What's her name again?735.5983
501 742.6428uh, did you get her for a watch dog for a pet or both?746.0597 
505 748.1128Does she know any tricks or anything?749.6377 
506DCA_se1_ag3_f_02752.4635None that I know of. No more than she will pay attention to you once in awhile.756.9051
508DCA_se1_ag3_f_02757.6569But I think the main thing is that she has to get accustomed to the children,761.5648
510DCA_se1_ag3_f_02761.7014[you know.]762.1711
511 762.7017And to the house.763.8336
513 764.2423Where we got her from,765.7106 
515 766.1854they had766.7756 
517 767.2473three or four children, ya- you know.769.5992 
519 770.0110And they didn't have too much of this going in and out like I have here.773.7015 
521DCA_se1_ag3_f_02774.0819Because normally I'll let the kids come up here and look at television.777.3636
523 777.7724You know, rather than for mine to be out there on the street.779.9976 
526 782.2481Okay.782.6411 
528 784.1723Did uh,784.9174 
530 785.1470she ever do anything funny that made you all laugh?787.9350 
532 789.5511/inaudible/790.3183 
533DCA_se1_ag3_f_02792.4870Yeah, one of- uh- the kids wanted to get after somebody, normally she'll take off and start running.797.1332
535DCA_se1_ag3_f_02797.6426But that's in the house. <laugh>800.5407
538 804.2972Okay. Um,805.3945 
540 805.8347when you were a-806.5861 
542 806.9061a-807.1702 
544 807.5192girl coming up in school, what did kids do after school was out?810.9612 
546 811.4108Mostly.811.9390 
548DCA_int_01812.6402[Every] day.813.2470
549 813.5960Fight?813.9261
552DCA_se1_ag3_f_02816.1294[Well you found] a few that would818.0945
553 818.3523fight, and the majority of 'em819.9551
555 820.4047would uh, go home, you know, so they could congregate at the soda shop824.0102 
557 824.6390you know, later.825.4377 
559 826.1074Because we had one right in the neighborhood-828.3201 
561 829.3513Well, as a matter of fact, it was on the same street, you know, so832.6268 
563 832.9663normally we'd save our lunch money. Instead of eating lunch at school and just go over there, you know.837.4019 
565 837.9333And buy us a soda and some cookies or something, just sit around.841.4162 
568 844.8205what did the fights start about?847.2007 
569DCA_se1_ag3_f_02848.5959[Normally because somebody] in the classroom850.9540
571DCA_se1_ag3_f_02851.2079had told on somebody sitting up talking or throwing bubble gum.854.9777
573 855.6435Sticking thumbtacks in people's seats.858.1620 
575DCA_se1_ag3_f_02861.0538Or pulling girls' hair or863.3710
577 863.8010some of the boys would say they like this girl, and another boy would come up and say well he like her. And then868.6894 
579 868.9535some of the boys would like to fight- you know, like to beat on the girls because they wouldn't take up time to talk to them,874.4989 
580DCA_int_01874.6310Ss! <laugh>875.9988
581DCA_se1_ag3_f_02876.3510which is still going on.877.6727
584DCA_int_01879.6349Yeah that's what I was going to ask you, do you think kids nowadays882.5656
586 882.7539do pretty much the same thing as when [/you were a kid/?]885.0474 
588 885.6251They just-886.3245
590 886.5850Uh, nowadays I think888.2611 
592 888.4447it's uh,889.3057 
594 890.1692more out in the open, you know,892.0926 
596 892.4932because893.0238 
598 893.5352in- in-893.9500 
600 894.1961in my childhood,895.8844 
602 896.3524normally if they did these things, you know they sneak around and do 'em like coming from school or waiting til it get dark.902.1785 
604 902.5066But nowadays, the kids don't really care, I don't think.905.3756 
607 907.6499/Good/.908.0819 
609 909.2541Uh, did you ever have a teacher who hollered a lot?911.8820 
611 912.8178In school.913.2568 
612DCA_se1_ag3_f_02913.4546I had a teacher that was very nervous.915.6591
614 916.5598But, uh,917.3649 
616 919.5991after she was at the school about three years, they said that she had923.6645 
618 924.1574TB.924.8030 
620DCA_se1_ag3_f_02925.6906You know? And they thought that927.2873
622 927.7263this, you know,928.8117 
624 929.0758probably came from930.3156 
626 930.6629knowing that she had it, and she was possibly just irritated most of the time,935.1299 
628 935.4760or else she just wanted to really take it out on the other children.938.1099 
631 939.6198What would she holler about?940.8982 
635 946.2082Not doing your homework.947.4817 
636DCA_se1_ag3_f_02949.3136Well normally if she didn't hear you,951.2046
638 951.8751you know, whenever she'd ask you a question, she would holler at you.955.0771 
640 956.0708And then,956.8233 
642 957.2961if you did answer her question, and you didn't answer it completely, she would holler at you.961.7619 
644 962.1816So that's the reason why I say everything cause it didn't really matter965.0663 
646 965.3171long as she could open her mouth.966.5797 
649 968.2200Did you ever969.0979 
651 969.4212personally970.1303 
653 970.7815[get hollered at?]971.6016 
654DCA_se1_ag3_f_02970.8249[get hollered at?] Yes,972.2432
656DCA_se1_ag3_f_02973.1778because I was always a soft talker,975.3390
658 975.5946you know?976.0722 
660 976.4340And the only time I'd have anything to say was when somebody would say something to me.980.2389 
663 981.9756Did you feel that it was fair or983.7074 
665 984.3875she was picking on you?985.6550 
666DCA_se1_ag3_f_02986.0120Well during that time, I didn't think it was fair. Well in some ways, now, I still don't think it was.990.6864
668DCA_se1_ag3_f_02991.1098Because I feel like992.3399
669 993.2130if you're in a class to learn, the best thing to do is keep your mouth closed so you can learn something.997.8139
671 998.2384You can't sit up and talk and- and listen to.1001.4849 
672DCA_int_011005.0969Okay, what about the best teacher you ever had?1007.5523
674 1007.8128Does one person stand out as the best?1010.0304 
675DCA_se1_ag3_f_021012.4378The best teacher I ever had, I didn't even know she was the best teacher until I-1016.5392
677 1016.7228my last year of s-1017.9552 
679 1018.1240of high school.1019.2432 
681 1020.9965I thought she was a snob the first-1023.7697 
683 1024.0949/Whenever/ I was in the ninth grade,1025.9618 
685 1027.0761I thought she was a snob1028.6522 
687 1031.1464because I went1032.0629 
689 1032.6080back to North Carolina the last of the ninth grade,1034.8595 
691 1035.4433and she was teaching English.1037.3534 
693 1038.0000And everybody called her Mom, you know. And I couldn't figure out why they called her Mom.1042.0606 
695 1042.5719And after I got in the class, she was always, you know, talking to the girls. She was more or less a girl counselor1047.7806 
697 1048.5235So I thought she was about the worst person in the world,1051.2008 
699DCA_se1_ag3_f_021051.6688and then, you know, after she1053.6888
700 1054.6391talked, and you know tried to teach us different things,1057.3730
702 1057.9580it took me about two years to really you know, catch on to what she was trying to do.1062.2791 
704 1063.3934But1063.8228 
706 1064.3920my last year of schooling I was in her English class,1068.1921 
708 1069.3595and I thought she was a wonderful person. You know, it was1072.6338 
710 1073.2030just the way that she did things that made me think you know, that she wouldn't1077.0477 
712 1077.5253be a nice person.1078.6963 
714 1079.0581Then after-1079.9023 
716 1080.3123Would- You know, I got in her class and I was able to understand1083.4383 
718 1083.7470really what she was talking about, and I thought she was the best person, you know,1086.7753 
720 1087.2818in the whole school.1088.3141 
723 1090.2425Did you ever have a teacher you couldn't stand?1091.9598 
724DCA_se1_ag3_f_021094.9989I had a lot of those.1096.3400
726 1097.9596And that was mainly because they were all after me for the same reason1101.1724 
728 1101.7609because I wouldn't talk louder.1103.7231 
730 1104.1573You know, I wouldn't talk very much.1105.9759 
732 1107.3652Cause I've always figured if you1109.1452 
734 1109.9689ask a person a question, you know,1111.7972 
736 1112.0674as long as they give you a reasonable answer, that's it.1114.9280 
739 1117.2566What- to you- what is a bad teacher? What would be some of the characteristics?1121.5200 
740DCA_se1_ag3_f_021121.7853Of a bad teacher?1122.8674
742 1124.7617[/inaudible/]1126.2713
743DCA_se1_ag3_f_021124.7713[Do you mean now or] while I was in school?1127.6174
744DCA_int_011127.7437Well, now.1128.4508
745DCA_se1_ag3_f_021129.1020Well now, a- what I would call a bad teacher is a teacher that1133.2217
747 1133.7547will1134.1408 
749 1134.7642leave out of the building and sit right in front of the building, which I have seen recently,1139.3084 
751 1139.8571drinking in front of the stud- and cursing in the classrooms and snatching on the children.1145.4336 
753 1145.9534I don't dominate1147.6804 
755 1147.9505a teacher for punishing a child because I think that is the only way they- you- that you are going to be able to get along with them.1154.3314 
757 1154.8090You know, and be able to teach them anything.1157.2162 
759 1157.5153But I do dominate one that1159.2507 
761 1159.7572is always snatching on the children and slapping on 'em because I think there is a more decent way to punish a child.1165.7763 
764 1167.0691What about when you were a kid? Did you have a different idea?1170.1372 
765DCA_se1_ag3_f_021171.2214Well whenever I was a kid, they just-1173.4356
767 1173.8505Well I didn't see any of the teachers doing this type thing.1177.0343 
769 1177.5541If- if you were punished, which I thought was a pretty bad way of punishing a child1181.9198 
771 1182.1802when I was coming up, was making them stand in a corner on one foot1185.4690 
773 1185.8935you know, with their face toward the wall1187.8183 
775 1188.4599or1188.9755 
777 1189.7742having to1190.6391 
779 1191.1842sit slumped over, which I thought was bad posture. You know?1194.9083 
781DCA_se1_ag3_f_021195.3376And this type thing.1196.2480
784 1199.0316Uh, do- Were you ever in a class where the-1200.9130 
786 1201.1735the uh, kids played a trick on the teacher?1203.5071 
787DCA_se1_ag3_f_021204.8722That was in most classes, you know, in my younger-1207.5978
789 1207.9644in my younger1208.6625 
791 1209.6420days like from the second to the fifth grades.1214.3308 
793 1215.3475It was always they were putting thumbtacks in the seats or putting bubble gum in her seat.1219.8483 
795 1220.4115You know, or writing something on the1222.1819 
797 1222.7801blackboard1223.8269 
799 1226.2051or taking her papers, hiding 'em.1228.0515 
801 1228.7365And stealing the test papers and not really using them, just burning 'em up, you know, to keep from1233.4915 
803 1234.2732having the class to take the tests.1236.4440 
806 1238.0889How did uh-1239.0007 
808 1239.8204how did the teachers usually react?1241.6048 
809DCA_se1_ag3_f_021242.3714Well they were furious.1243.5437
811 1243.9247If they couldn't find out who did it, everybody would have to stay in1247.4209 
813 1248.2651for a lunch, and then after lunch, j-1250.3539 
815 1250.5565you know after the evening classes, they would have to stay in1253.4208 
817 1253.9996for a hour or so after school.1255.7073 
820 1258.1075Good.1258.4088 
822 1259.1118Uh, was there a group of kids that you used to associate with as a kid?1263.3183 
824DCA_int_011264.7933[Sort] of your group.1265.8594
826DCA_int_011267.5429[There were no special friends-?]1269.0046
827DCA_se1_ag3_f_021267.9578[I was always-]1269.0046
828 1269.2362No, I was more or less always a loner.1271.3768
830 1271.9605I might would associate with one or two girls, you know.1275.3276 
832 1276.0271But if I did it would be after I came home cause normally1278.9927 
834 1279.3979during the lunch hour, I would spend most of my time in the lunch room.1282.7312 
837 1286.4879Okay. Um,1287.6119 
839 1289.8201was there a kid1290.8379 
841 1291.0454when you were coming up- was ever a-1293.3512 
843 1293.7130I wanna say a girl- who was considered a leader1296.2589 
845 1297.0066at one point when you were coming up, who was a leader of1299.9458 
847 1300.7519the girls your age1301.9387 
849 1302.7080that you recall?1303.3779 
850DCA_se1_ag3_f_021306.3542Well usually there would always be two or three that were trouble makers.1309.9566
852 1310.8828And they would- they would uh, really call them leaders because the other girls were afraid of 'em.1315.2231 
855 1317.3457Was that the main thing that1318.6626 
857 1319.0582gave them their1319.7770 
859 1320.4222position as [leaders?]1321.5558 
861DCA_int_011325.2766Okay uh,1326.1193

878 1350.7416Uh, what kind of a nurse would it be?1352.5390 
880 1353.6775[Hospital nurse?]1354.6282 
881DCA_se1_ag3_f_021353.7016[A registered] nurse. Hospital.1355.6456
882 1355.8483Right.1356.2535
884 1357.6560Or a private practice isn't a bad thing.1360.1356 
886 1360.6758You know, I'd like that.1362.0217 
888DCA_se1_ag3_f_021363.0384Because- Well,1364.1334
890 1364.4229either way, if you were a hospital nurse, you could still take on private patients,1368.8272 
892DCA_se1_ag3_f_021369.2275[you know.]1369.6376
893DCA_int_011371.8313How long does it take to be a nurse?1373.4473
894DCA_se1_ag3_f_021374.0663Three years.1375.0199
897 1378.9117Now, what is an ordinary day like for you?1381.8435 
899 1382.2246From when you get up in the morning to when you go to bed?1384.6944 
901 1385.4373What kinds of things do you1387.0148 
903 1387.5550do?1388.0085 
906 1391.1477just clean up the house.1392.5708 
908 1392.9567Holler at the kids all day if they're home.1394.8801 
910DCA_se1_ag3_f_021395.9512And try to keep up with my mother1397.6540
912 1398.5513because1399.2253 
914 1399.4749she's-1400.0709 
916 1400.4134Well she gets around real well but she's had six heart attacks,1403.9047 
920 1405.8825she1406.6833 
922 1407.3913get up and we can get her dressed you know and everything.1410.5413 
924 1411.1009Give her five minutes, she's1412.5288 
926 1412.7881changed her clothes and she has 'em on backward and1415.3544 
928 1415.7548then she can't find her shoes and this type thing, so1418.2247 
930 1418.5865it's a full time job, you know, just trying to1420.9539 
932 1421.3012more or less take care of her1422.7532 
934 1423.1102with the children- They watch her.1424.6452 
936 1424.9807You know, they help me to watch her.1426.4906 
938 1427.2672So, it's not really as bad, you know, as it would be otherwise.1430.8949 
939DCA_int_011431.4243That's good.1432.1334
940DCA_se1_ag3_f_021432.2106But right now, you- you know,1433.8459
942 1434.1740if I could get out and go to work, it would still be a hinderance to me because the kids will be going back to school,1439.1173 
943DCA_int_011439.1704/Oh sure/.1439.6094
944DCA_se1_ag3_f_021439.5804and then I would have to get somebody to stay here with her.1441.8429
947 1445.1268Well,1445.6140 
949 1445.8359okay.1446.5354 
951 1448.1177Uh, here's a question to test your imagination.1450.7454 
953 1451.8454If you had all the money you wanted,1453.4325 
955 1453.8859you could get more when that ran out, what would you do?1456.6115 
956DCA_se1_ag3_f_021459.4661First thing would be to buy my children some clothes1461.9673
958 1462.8635and get them straighten- You know, and get them straightened out for school1466.1973 
960 1467.0162and possibly buy me a home.1468.7046 
962 1469.9878And then I would worry about transportation,1472.3033 
964DCA_se1_ag3_f_021473.4634but I wouldn't really you know, try to spend it all,1476.1516
966 1476.3880save some, you know1477.7484 
968 1478.1246for something else but I think the main thing would be,1480.3425 
970 1480.6271after getting the children straightened out for school, would be to1483.2706 
972 1483.6372get my bills straightened out.1484.8853 
975 1486.9260What if it really were a limitless supply? In other words,1489.9361 
977 1491.0445you could spend- It was so much that you could-1493.8182 
979 1494.2572There'd be no point in saving because you wouldn't live long enough to spend it.1497.3144 
981 1497.8204/You know/.1498.2869 
983 1499.9387Would you do anything spectacular, with it?1502.1480 
984DCA_se1_ag3_f_021503.7195No more than make a will for my children to [spend the rest of it (laughing).]1507.5111
986 1509.0053Good.1509.4057
987DCA_se1_ag3_f_021509.8206And take care of my mother if she was the longest /liver/.1512.2036
988DCA_int_011514.6687Here's another one-1515.5997
990 1516.6067Question along those lines. I don't know if you ever think about this, but if you could be1520.7794 
992 1522.0566the president or the1523.5134 
994 1523.9524dictator of the US,1525.4044 
996 1525.6794/what/ would you do?1526.8661 
998 1527.9551How would you improve1528.9151 
1000 1529.1804things?1529.6146 
1001DCA_se1_ag3_f_021530.4057How would I improve things?1531.9629
1003 1533.0058Well I think the first thing I would do is try to take care of the home front first.1537.1822 
1005DCA_se1_ag3_f_021538.1180Because we have so many people that-1540.0428
1007 1541.0884that's hungry in the United States,1543.2544 
1009 1543.6692where they were sending the money other places that I think they could really use here.1547.4211 
1012 1549.9585Any other policies you would have?1551.8253 
1013DCA_se1_ag3_f_021554.8874I think that if it was in my power, I would make better laws1558.1243
1015 1558.6742uh,1559.3098 
1017 1559.6040concerning children1560.9716 
1019 1562.0015you know, and their1562.9856 
1021 1563.3908times for being at home and1565.5796 
1023 1566.4239the limitations on what they would have to do.1568.8512 
1026 1571.9124Good.1572.2838 
1028 1573.3258How's your family celebrate Christmas?1575.2409 
1029DCA_se1_ag3_f_021577.4539Well just like a normal family,1579.5234
1031 1579.9093only we- (laughing) most times we just don't have as much.1582.4763 
1033DCA_se1_ag3_f_021583.0208You know, but1583.5466
1034 1583.9169we're thankful for what we have.1585.4027
1035DCA_int_011586.7823Do you have a1587.3178
1037 1587.6438tree?1588.1282 
1039DCA_int_011593.3369What was the best Christmas present you ever got?1595.4305
1040DCA_se1_ag3_f_021601.9512That's a1602.6715
1042 1603.0644pretty hard question to answer. <laugh>1605.7321 
1043DCA_int_011606.8223Maybe something as a child?1608.2502
1045 1609.8216Or as a grown up.1610.7671 
1046DCA_se1_ag3_f_021610.9601Well when I was a child about the Christmas present that I could1614.1584
1048 1614.8193remember getting was a pair of skates.1616.9599 
1050 1617.1625I thought that that was the most wonderful thing in the world.1619.6661 
1052DCA_se1_ag3_f_021620.8372Now, I had wanted a bicycle,1623.3022
1054 1624.0306and then when I got the bicycle I didn't really want it.1626.3563 
1056DCA_se1_ag3_f_021627.3387But after I grew up,1628.4530
1058 1629.3599I wanted a baby doll. I was about sixteen years old,1632.5775 
1060DCA_se1_ag3_f_021634.0525and I wanted a baby doll.1635.7360
1062 1636.8069So,1637.3617 
1064 1637.9792finally I worked1639.4300 
1066 1639.7706you know, and1640.3610 
1068 1640.8096I was gonna get me a baby doll, but my mother she bought it for me.1644.1478 
1070 1644.7074And that surprised me because I didn't know she was gonna get it.1647.3112 
1073 1649.1201Good.1649.3999 
1075 1650.0994It's always better to get what you want,1651.7637 
1077 1652.1146then what people think you want.1653.6969 
1079DCA_int_011655.8484Well what you do, say from Christmas Eve1658.1253
1081 1658.9924through the day?1659.8318 
1083 1660.1695On Christmas- on a typical Christmas.1662.1121 
1084DCA_se1_ag3_f_021663.4932Stay up most of the night on Christmas Eve,1665.7859
1086 1666.7675and you couldn't really sleep on Christmas [day (laughing)],1669.1891 
1088DCA_se1_ag3_f_021669.6751So, you- Normally /you're on/ Christmas Eve,1671.9569
1090 1672.7914I would just cook,1673.9479 
1092 1674.2425you know.1674.7258 
1094 1675.4784And stay up.1676.3756 
1095DCA_int_011679.9747Okay, a little more of a serious question. Were you ever in a situation where you thought you might die or be killed?1685.4326
1096DCA_se1_ag3_f_021688.7467I was in a car wreck1689.9370
1098 1690.6365when I was1691.5127 
1100 1692.6963fifteen years old,1694.1435 
1102 1695.2970and I didn't really know what to think.1697.0994 
1104 1698.5080I wasn't hurt that bad- Well, my1700.8525 
1106 1702.2261right eye was1703.3163 
1108 1703.7987split,1704.4258 
1110 1704.8021you know, a little.1705.8007 
1112 1706.5870But uh,1707.4649 
1114 1709.0846the circumstances made me feel like I really wanted to be dead1712.9631 
1116 1713.6240because I was driving-1715.3883 
1118 1716.5075Well actually I had been driving since I was eight years old,1719.2234 
1120 1720.0760but I was driving and I didn't have any driver's license. My mother was in the car,1724.1040 
1122 1724.9241and uh,1725.6815 
1124 1727.9283this taxi had run a red light1730.2004 
1126 1730.5236and run into us and knocked us into a telegram post.1733.6869 
1128 1734.3236And1734.9701 
1130 1735.6358I was conscious long enough to1737.6088 
1132 1738.2491tell my mother to swap seats with me, you know.1740.5502 
1134 1741.0374So that she wouldn't get in any trouble,1742.9332 
1136DCA_se1_ag3_f_021743.4687but then after we swapped seats, I passed out,1745.9332
1138 1746.0724you know. And then1746.8202 
1140 1747.4617it had really jarred me because my head was upset.1750.0377 
1143 1752.0819How long did it take you to get straightened out again?1754.5277 
1144DCA_se1_ag3_f_021755.2492I don't really know.1756.2691
1146 1756.7949Sometime the next day.1758.1686 
1147DCA_int_011758.6076Oh, was-1759.3794
1149 1760.0692You weren't in the hospital a long time?1761.8155 
1150DCA_se1_ag3_f_021762.4330No, I didn't stay in1763.9863
1152 1764.9643I guess about five days1767.1228 
1154 1767.7960because1768.3701 
1156 1769.1178normally if I'm sick or something, it doesn't take me long to recuperate as long as they let me do it my way.1774.1432 
1159 1776.0474Good.1776.6553 
1161 1777.9577Sometimes people say that whatever's gonna happen is gonna happen.1781.3116 
1163 1781.7783What do you think about that?1783.5813 
1164DCA_se1_ag3_f_021784.4978Well I think that's- that's all in the power of God.1787.4308
1166DCA_se1_ag3_f_021788.8816And whichever way that1790.1856
1168 1790.5866things are- whichever way that He would have things to go, that's the just the way they are going.1794.8537 
1170 1795.8155We can't predict what's going to happen, really.1798.3161 
1171DCA_int_011800.2409What do you think about people making plans for their lives?1803.5007
1173 1804.7839Should they do that or1805.9253 
1175 1806.2322is it all no use?1807.2682 
1176DCA_se1_ag3_f_021809.5970Well I think that we can make plans for our lives, but1813.1752
1178 1813.5611I sure think that when we make them for our lives, we should leave that in the hands of God too because1818.3416 
1180 1818.6600we never know what he has in store for us.1820.7910 
1183 1824.4379Okay, good.1825.2291
