  2. My old, blue Pontiac
  3. Giant Lip Smackers
  4. Free time

  10. Grunge rock
  11. My elementary school crush, Michael Lamb
  12. Being able to tolerate hangovers
  13. “Harriet the Spy”

  15. Thinking about what we would name our children
  16. Seven-digit telephone numbers
  17. My parents’ diesel station wagon
  18. The PAC-MAN eating sound
  19. Playdates before people called them “playdates”
  20. Swimming in Lake Washington
  21. Cherry Bombs
