I was around for the '80's... wasn't I?
Now I'm not so sure.
The other day I was talking about the Olympics with someone.... and they mentioned the Los Angeles Summer Olympics.
I kind of vaguely remember that. I remember a bunch of people dancing to "All Night Long" at the closing ceremony.
But I don't remember anything else.
Same with Live Aid. I kind of remember it, but I also kind of don't remember it at all.
I remember "Less Than Zero" was huge one Summer. Like everyone else, I read it. Don't remember it. I remember using the term "Allagash" with friends to describe a method of bar-hopping we used to do. Don't remember any of the places we went.
I wasn't over imbibing. I wasn't doing drugs. I'm just not sure where the 80's went.
