  • I remember when I could remember what day of the week it was

    I remember when I could bend over to tie my shoes without a pinch in my back

    I remember when I could stay awake for an entire movie that starts at 9 pm

    I remember when I could go out for a long walk without worrying about restroom facilities along the way

    I remember when my sunglasses weren't prescription lenses

    I remember when the music was never too loud

    I remember when teenaged boys wore tight jeans to show off their butts
    I remember when I noticed them and not their fathers like now

    I remember when only sailors who crossed the equator got tattoos

    I remember when I didn't need oatmeal and high fiber veggies

    I remember when not everything cool had an i in front of it like iChevy or iConverse
    I remember when not everyone had a Charger and, if you did, you were into muscle cars

    I remember when if you broke down on the road, you couldn't just whip out an iPhone and call for help

    I remember when I didn't live in a condo that had a pull cord station in the bathroom and bedroom

    I remember when I didn't think about seat belts and squeezed six friends into the back of my Rambler American

    I remember when I doubted the existence of a Creator and thought I could do anything on my own.
    I remember accepting that it was okay to be part of a much larger whole and giving up my life to it.
