Fifteen Firsts: Kathleen Kole

What was your first car? 
Okay, I'm going to be dating myself here, so here goes: My first car was a used 1978 white Chevy Monza Spider. I bought it straight out of high school and was over the moon to purchase my very own car.

What was the first thing you learned to cook? 
Other than the usual breakfast stuff, the first family meal that I cooked/created was a roast with all the trimmings. I was fourteen years old.

When was your first time on an airplane? 
My first flight was at the ripe old age of twenty, and I flew from my home city of Edmonton AB to Toronto ON. (Both in Canada.)

What was your first paying job? 
My first paying job was at a bookstore! Talk about a treat!

How old were you when you had your first kiss? 
Oh dear... this one is awkward! Haha! My first real kiss was when I was twelve years old.

What was the first concert you went to see? 
The first concert I had the pleasure of seeing was performed by Paul Simon. The man can put on a show!

When/what was your first regrettable hairstyle? 
Hmmm, you know I honestly don't have one. Seriously, for me hair has always been an accessory, so I just see it as something you can change. It always grows back.

How old were you when you got your first computer? 
Oh man, this is going to sound sad! Haha! I bought my first computer (a Mac) when I was twenty eight years old.

What was your first big purchase? 
That's easy. My first big purchase was my house.

What was the first book that made you cry? 
I honestly do not remember. I have read so many great books that have made me run the gamut of human emotions. I'm grateful to have had the chance to read all of them.

Where was your first road trip? 
As an adult, my first road trip with a group of friends was to where I now live: the gorgeous Okanagan Valley. I am grateful to that trip as it was the reason I chose to move here, many years later.

Who was your first best friend? 
My first best friend was a girl I met at the young age of five named Heather. And, the best part is, she's still my best friend to this day! 

When/where was your first trip abroad? 
My first trip out of Canada was to California USA. 

Who was your first love? 
My first animal love was my hamster, Tupper. (Yes, for me it counts! I adored that furry rodent!) My first human love was a boy named Wayne, who I met in high school.

Who was your first celebrity crush? 
Oh boy, this one is really going to date me! Haha! My first celebrity crush was Shawn Cassidy. I had a poster of him in my childhood bedroom and thought he was dreamy. 

Thanks, Kathleen!
