1978 – 3240 Ramsey Circle Orlando, Florida

This was our last stop – Orlando, Florida. I would work at Disney World for a summer and my dad would retire from the military and move north to Virginia to start a career as a defense contractor. I remember the heat and the bugs. Disney World was corporate; every move we made was monitored and controlled from the jewelry we wore to where we walked in the building. I worked in the restaurant underneath the monorail and one evening one of my colleagues was fired for eating a dessert mint.
It was so hot. We’d move from the air-conditioned house to the air-conditioned car to the air-conditioned workplace. We never walked outside. Once I went to Daytona Beach with some girls from work and they wouldn’t go in the water because they didn’t want to get their hair wet.
