20 Years Ago... Part III

Part I
Part II

So Holly could not be in Florida when I got there (something about wisdom teeth, yadda, yadda) so she said I needed to go to the apartments and ask for a guy named Scott Hughes. However, upon my arrival I encountered a whirlwind of enthusiasm and big hair, the likes of which I had never seen before.

Yes, the person who answered my knock was Suzy M of Crawfordsville Indiana. Talk about a kindred spirit. I was not even over the threshold when we excitedly began a fast-talking friendship that endures to this day. The initial conversation went something like this (note: to get the full effect of the conversation you need to read this very quickly with no real pauses except for quick breaths):

Me: "Hi, my name is Jacque and I go to Carolina with Holly and she told me all about working for Disney and that you all had 2 apartments one for the girls and one for the guys and she said that I should come here and ask for Scott Hughes and meet the other girls from Indiana so I could ask if it is ok with ya'll that I sleep in the girls apartment on the couch and we could all save on the rent and I thought it would be so much fun and I am so excited to meet you all and cannot wait to play in the parks.... "

Suzy: "Hiiiiiiiiii! I am Suzy and it is so great to meet you. I am not sure about everyone else but I think it would be great if you wanted to stay here to because it is just going to be so much fun and we just got here today and I cannot wait to start and did you already have your interview? do you know where you are going to work? Monte's sister used to be the Ambassador for Walt Disney World and she helped us all get jobs and... "

Me: " That is soooooooooooo cool and I'm so excited and wow she must have really loved that awesome job here at Disney and so ya'll got some really cool jobs? and..."

Suzy: "Please come on in and you can move in whenever I think we are going to have so much fun this summer and everyone is so nice and I cannot wait.....

Me: " I know! Can you believe we get to do this, oh man, this is so exciting and did you see we are right next to the hot tub and there is a volley ball court and this is so much like what my sister Heidi and I talked about doing when we grew up except we talked about moving to California and living in an apartment right on the beach and.... "

Suzy: " I know, I say we use the hot tub tonight and then go to the pool and maybe do a day trip to Cocoa Beach tomorrow...wait, OH MY GOSH! I love this song...Pour some sugar on me...yeah in the name of love..."

Well, you get the point.

Suzy and I got along like peas and carrots as they say. She was the beauty and brains and I was, well, I was the comic relief. We complimented each other very well. It was about 45 minutes into this ultimate gab-fest, when it dawned on me to ask the following question..."oh, I forgot, Holly said I should talk to Scott...is he here too?"

"No, Suzy, Jason is not moving to Canada to work.
He meant the Canadian Pavillion at EPCOT!"

Part IV soon...I promise!
