FIRST MAJOR NEWS STORY I REMEMBER LIVING THROUGH AS A CHILD

Inspired by @_sarah
  1. As a little kid in Glasgow, I used to watch Elvis movies on TV on weekend afternoons.
  2. I pretty much thought that was what America was like.
  3. So the first major news story I remember was Elvis' death in 1977, when I was six.
  4. I had no concept of how a human could have "died on the toilet."
  5. But I was pretty afraid of toilets for a long time after that.
  6. I'm okay now, though.
  7. THE END
