Deja vu all over again

June 7, 2017 - 1:47pm
"I play along with the charade. There doesn't seem to be a reason to change. You know, I feel so dirty when they start talking cute, I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot." Having d'ej`a vu yet? I certainly am. I'm doing exactly what I was doing on this day four years ago - writing a blog that started like that and singing "Jessie's Girl" in my head. How do I know this? Because Facebook tells me. Thanks to the "On This Day" feature, I know that four years ago I was musing about the weird workings of the brain. Three years ago, I was on a lovely bike ride, six years ago I was listening to Tom Izzo at a conference I planned and eight years ago I was celebrating a Red Wings' win in the playoffs. Because of these reminders and an earworm of a song hook, I'm once again "watching him with those eyes." It's an interesting feature of Facebook - sometimes I love reminiscing, and sometimes it freaks me out how fast time is flying. But it's usually pretty good memories - I, like most other people don't usually post about my failures and mistakes. Well, I suppose when it's something funny like falling out of my chair in a meeting or something, but most people tend to hide their really big mistakes from their Facebook friends, which makes everyone look like they have these perfect lives, when in reality, we all make mistakes and have failures.
