Throwback Thursday: Is There Any Day In Your Life You’d Re-Live?
For today's Throwback Thursday, we wondered if there was a day in your life you'd happily go back in time and do all over again if you could?
JStew: It's a toss up for me... There are so many. If I narrowed it down to a few, it'd go something like this, in no particular order. Christmas Eve 1986 when I got my first drumset. Every moment of that day is pretty much frozen into my mind. My first real, big gig. My high school cover band got to open for Glass Tiger (Remember those guys? Me neither, haha) in Canada. There were about 5000 people there, and it was an absolute blast. I played much bigger shows after that, but that was my first taste of being a rock star, not that I ever really was one. I'd love to re-live my last day with my grandfather. Nothing special about it, it was just the last one. My wedding day would be another one. KStew still puts up with me after 15 years... And I'd love to go back to my last day with my dad too. He was very ill, but he and I sat telling jokes right up until the end. I know that's not one day, but all these days have equal billing in my mind. I'd also re-live any day hanging out with my mom. She's still very much alive and kicking, but my mom made me the man I am, without question. Every time I hang with my mom is pure gold.
Cori: There are a couple of days I remember well from childhood. But there are a particular set of memories that stand out in a way, over the rest. And I think I'd love to have had any of those days go on for longer.
I came from pretty modest means, so my family never really took vacations, like many others we knew. But we would make it a point, every summer, to drive from Orono to Biddeford to meet up with a family we had knows overseas. This family, who lived in Austria, would spend a few weeks visiting family here in Maine. They had kids the same ages as my sister and brothers and I, and we would usually spend a night with them at their grandparent's, when we'd visit. And every night we were there, we'd always play the most epic battle of Hide-And-Go-Seek around the neighborhood. Boys VS Girls, complete with home bases and sometimes even squirt guns and ice-cream sandwiches. It was the absolute most fun we had all year. One year we also went with this same family to Funtown Splashtown, and that was a huge treat for us. I remember being so excited to drive those antique cars around the track. I'd like to relive any one of those visits over again.
Here are your memories... Some very sweet, some bittersweet.
