The strangest things trigger a memory no?
I’m sitting here on my green couch with a box fan blowing the cool morning air on me. It brings back memories of the 420 apartment that I lived in during sophomore and junior year of college. We lived in an apartment that was long and narrow. The unit air conditioner was in the front of the apartment in the living room. We had to set up an entire series of fans to blow any cool air down our long hallway to reach our bedrooms that were in the very back.
College memories of sitting on our green couches in the early morning with the fan blowing was associated with not feeling 100% on a Saturday morning. How did I not drink coffee back then? How did I survive those hot summer nights with only a box fan in my bedroom window?
One night my roommate’s boyfriend (now husband) kept coming back to our bedrooms where we were getting ready for the night out. He was asking for the most random items. We just handed over what he was asking for. Twenty minutes later we walked into our living room.
“Look girls, I made you into white trash for the night. You’ll be cooler though.”
I cooled off other ways that night, too.
Hot but happy in college.
Clearly I will not be forgetting that night anytime soon.
I am making a to do list for today (as well as now going through college pictures and cracking up). My main goal is to go into Schaumburg for packet pick up! They are encouraging it today rather than the morning. I still need to pick up Aaron’s Ipass (not an Apple product, ha) and gas up my car. I’m planning a Trader Joe’s trip on the way back. I love having the freezer stocked with their fish.
I also need to charge my Garmin watch and update my running play list. Call Me Maybe needs to hit the road.
