What I Used to Watch

I loved the Ten Commandments. I remember seeing it a long time ago and I’ll never forget it because it comes from the Bible. It was a very long movie. It had intermission. We’d go out for 45 minutes than come back. It had all the actors and it was about the ten commandments where the Jews were enslaved. Charlton Heston was Moses. He was called by God to deliver the Jews from the Pharaoh. It was a very interesting nonfiction. I’ll never forget it. Every so often I’ll go to the Bible and read it. It was the longest picture I ever saw. Very interesting picture. I’d watch it when it was on TV too. All the time. Every year.

My oldest brother tried to sing this song all the time. He sounded a little like him. He’s okay at singing. He’s 6-8 years older than me. That was years back. He would sing it all the time. His name is William. He used to think he was the best and all that junk. He would dress ice. He thought he was Mr. Big Stuff. He had jive and everything else. He had a lot of girls.

My mother wouldn’t allow him to bring them over to our house. He always had nice girls. I don’t know how they liked him, but he always had nice ones. He got married a long time ago. I had a choice to go to my brother’s wedding or go to Jersey and I chose Jersey. My cousins and friends in Jersey took me shopping and all over. I had a good time but later I think I wished I would’ve gone to his wedding.

When I was young the older people used to like Sam Cooke. My mom and my uncle. They all used to like Sam Cooke. When he was younger, he would sing spiritual and when he got older, he would sing rock and roll. He was very talented, Sam Cooke. She’d listen as she was cooking. I listened to him when he played rock and roll. I loved rock and roll. I still do.

Advice to Younger Self

Feb 10, 2020

I was trying to learn how to type and everything. I said, “Go ahead, just learn a couple lines.” I tried typing them out and I had pressed all the wrong keys. I corrected the mistake by putting my fingers on the home keys and I learned how to type. I ended up getting a typing job later in life. I was very young. I was just learning how to type. That’s a mistake I made.

You gotta keep on trying.

Childhood Dreams

I always wanted to be a teacher. I actually taught at Sunday school.

I remember we had all different subjects in school, there was some science, math, but my favorite teacher was my English teacher. I loved all the stories she taught. I also liked science, liked astrology. It’s the study of the heavenly bodies. Comets and everything, coming to the earth and all that. I never looked through a telescope. Never had the chance to look at stars. They brought us on field trips. I did what I was told. We saw Prospect Park and things like that.

The only thing I can imagine I was good at is typing. I had around five to six jobs in typing. I was a fast typer, I’d say between 60 and 70 words a minute. Yeah, that’s how I got those particular jobs. All of them test you before… But there were different typing jobs, statistical and regular typing. I had two banks with statistical and two other jobs with statistical, just numbers. The other was regular typing. I advised them with numbers, they couldn’t do all that all day or they’d be sick . But some of them were in banks, and that’s all they got is numbers.

I had my own typewriter. It was like an old Royal or something, but I could type on it. That’s the only thing I can remember me doing is type. And I earned a living off it.

Young Trouble

Life Story Club Contributor

Dec 2, 2019

Maybe for staying out too late. Well, me and my older sister. We both stay on punishment. Being out late, that’s the only trouble that I remember. We’d be out late partying. I was about 15 or 16 years old. Other than that I don’t remember no trouble. We’d come back a little after 12 or something. I don’t remember if we had a curfew, well we didn’t follow it anyway. My mother said, “Y’all going to get in trouble.” And she’d make us stay on punishment. She would hit us! Yeah. Then we’d get grounded for a week, sometimes two weeks, if we were really bad she’d make us stay in for a month. We couldn’t go outside like that. Her punishment worked. We wouldn’t stay out late again after that. We finally learned the lesson.
