Five O’Clock Shadow 7

Five O'Clock Shadow 7

From a beer/burger place in Moore OK, awaiting some old (and I mean old) friends (of my wife, but close enough) to arrive.

I'm constantly amazed at our need, as a species, to reminisce about the past. And I mean the short past, not the long. Long past is called History, and most of us claim we hate the topic. Yet the short past, that past which we can still touch with our own memories, is different.

Or is it? Maybe we don't hate History as much as we think?

  1. I like history, but not the heavy stuff. I guess you would call it pop culture history. I'm interested in how certain companies got started or how people did ordinary daily tasks 50 or 100 years ago. The recent past, however, I avoid like a plague. I don't like being reminded of all the mistakes I've made.
