Memories/Nostalgia — [Before & After] The Internet


Memories before the Internet (speaking to a friend)

“Dude! You remember that time when we went on that fabulous road-trip with <X,Y,Z>. Great adventures during the day. Intoxicating Conversations & Mutual Bonhomie at night. Man! Those were some fun times!”

… Or …

“Dude! Do you remember that other time when had that embarrassing moment with . Haha. What a gaffe that was! Poor guy; we used to bring it up every chance we got.”

Memories after the Internet (speaking to yourself)

“Dude! You remember that time when you watched that #EPIC Robin Williams (bless his soul) stand-up on YouTube. And how you went on a comedy binge after that. It was the middle of the night, and you were guffawing like a jackass. Haha! Those were good times man. 5 hours spent so awesomely!”

… Or …

“Dude! You remember that other time when you spent 16 hours everyday glued to the screen, and connected to the Collective-Hive Information-Network with an IV drip?! It was such a departure from the mundane routine. What adventure-driven adrenaline-filled days those were! And it continues to this day!”
