whatever you got. wing it. throw out random memories. maybe they will help us see who we all are, or what made us the person we are today. maybe you will see people have had similar experiences. maybe you will gets some laughs. maybe you’ll just kill some time.
It’s not a big deal but I just now searched for my power bank AGAIN. No where to be found. And then I thought of when I helped cleaning up that wound that the girl with the bleeding knee got at Em’s show after the doors opened. And then after the opening act my phone was dying and she says I have a power bank I will charge it for you. And she charges my phone for like one hour so I could make videos 😭💕 That was so nice of her. And her brother was like 14 and super cute. I wonder what they’re doing now. I think they were from Italy.
I remember being a little kid, I had to be a little less than four, because my Grandma was still alive..... Her house was super cool. She has a room with a bunch of dolls and other old school random toys. She’d usually let us take something home. I remember getting this cool toy helecopter where the top propeller blades actually would spin. It was super cool. I remember getting home and it was summer time and sunny out. And I was playing with it on the balcony in the backyard. I remember spinning the top propeller and dropping it off the side over the rail. I dunno I guess I thought it’d come down nice and soft or something since the blades were spinning. 🤷🏻♀️ Nope..... Two of the propellor blades broke off. 🙈 I was sad, but it was still one of my favorite toys for quite a while after that. And being a kid and playing make believe like i could still pretend it could fly even though it was all fucked up looking after that.
Haha. So I searched around online, and I’m pretty sure this is the same helecopter. It’s pretty basic, but it was cool for a 3 / 4 year old Like I said though, mine didn’t have all four blade up top. Just two. And I’m pretty sure when my grandma gave it to me it didn’t have the back blade either. Also I remember taking random toys and trying to stick them inside. there wasn’t much room to cram toys in their so usually the pilot (whatever toy I decided was that pilot that day) would have to lay sideways inside with his legs sticking out the side 😬 maybe if my toys could’ve actually fit inside they wouldn’t have had so many crashes.
I miss searching out music.... Before everything was readily available on YouTube and Spotify.
Don’t get me wrong, I love having everything right here, but we lost something when we got that.
I remember finding artists, And going to the record store and looking for a specific album. Then them not having it. And having to have them special order it for you.
Then getting the call “we got your (whatever album) here ready for pick up”.
Then jumping on the bus, throwing the album into your Walkman or disc player and listening through your headphones while ignoring the freaks on the bus.... That first listened after the excitement leading up to it.
I miss that.
You felt accomplished. Like “yeahhhhhhhh..... I gots that good stuffffs” 😎
