“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.”
-Andy, The Office finale
I always hear about the good old days being so long ago. Like when my Grandpa could buy a bag of lemon drops for a nickel. Are the good old days gone? No way!
Reflecting on my good old days…
- Was it my childhood? Three Flies Up with neighborhood buddies. Lightning bugs on humid Summer nights. Baking chocolate chip cookies with my Grandma.
- Was it my teenager years? Hanging with friends. Scouting out cute guys. Touring Europe with my mother.
- Was it early marriage? Movie nights mid-week. Road trips without destinations. Co-ed softball games and pizza.
- Is it now? Raising children. Cheering them on soccer, football, and basketball. Family Monopoly games until the wee hours.
Whaddya know. I’ve been living the good old days all along,
How about you?
