I just ran into Steve, a former housemate. Yesterday I ran into Jim, my boss at the twice-since merged out of existence cell phone company. A couple of weeks ago Leslie, another former housemate, suddenly remembered who I was, though I’ve seen around town a bit in the last few years and never responded to waves hello.
These are all people I was around pre-Amazon. And somehow the weather the last couple of days has put me in a 1995-ish mood (though I’ve lived under a sporadic drizzle every year since then).
