In other news... There is a meme that has been going around that takes the form of "Sixteen things I would tell myself at sixteen." I have read a few of them, and thought about it...
I wouldn't have much to say, actually. Most of the stupid things I would have liked to avoid have had long term consequences I would not have wanted to miss. Most particularly, if I had stayed in school and had discovered a meaningful career path (the latter not terribly likely in any case) I would never have met Dementia, and that is not an option.
It IS interesting to visualize popping back to July, 1972, and trying to engage the me-who-was-then in conversation, though. And it is more than a little bizarre to try to figure out what HE would have thought of ME.
